RE: Key broke off inside front door lock on travel trailer

I've had good luck using a crochet hook to catch part of the key still in the lock. My wife hasn't missed the one I took out of her set about 35 years ago. If she wants it it is in the tool box in the truck.

RE: Pushing a TT into position from the rear bumper...?

What about renting a skid steer or a tractor? I'm thinking somehow add a ball to the bucket or fork, and lifting the tongue to maneuver the trailer into position. You might already be renting the equipment to prepare the site. Brian

RE: XM antenna clearance

No, I left the shark fin on the roof, and added another XM antenna. I had no luck with the magnetic XM antennae, so I went with one that I had to fab a bracket for. This is what I used. https://www.amazon.ca/BROWNING-WSPBRTRUCKER-Satellite-Trucker-Mirror-Mount/dp/B00B94N044/ref=sr_1_11?crid=3LCGNH3LT08AE&dchild=1&keywords=xm+antenna&qid=1616899295&sprefix=xm+%2Caps%2C193&sr=8-11 This is from Amazon Canada, but I am sure the US site will have something similar.

RE: XM antenna clearance

I have clearance for the XM antenna, but I had to put a sheet of 3/4" plywood in the box of my 2014 Chev 3500 for the Bigfoot to clear the bed rails. I also relocated the XM antenna to the front of the truck so it wasn't shadowed by the camper. Brian

RE: Need a Transporter

One of the members here had a similar problem. He rented a dump truck from Home Depot ( I think it was). Loaded it on and tied it down with some heavy duty ratchet straps. I don't think he was travelling as far as you need to, but it may be an option. Hopefully he will be along shortly to better address your question. Brian

RE: Winter TC Repair Project

Looking at your install pictures, all you need is a nipple. Probably easiest to get a hex nipple as they have a hex in the middle to put a wrench on for tightening. Plumbing dept. of hardware/ big box store should have them. Nice work on the rebuild! https://www.homedepot.ca/product/sioux-chief-3-4-inch-lead-free-brass-hex-nipple/1001001937 The link is for 3/4" and from HD Canada, but US site should have 1/2" size. Or can you drill out the back flow part so it is just a nipple? Brian

RE: Jump box for dual battery 7.3 diesel

I carry 2 of the small lithium battery jumper packs. On my 06 GMC, the batteries died when my wife had the truck. I was in the midst of a breakdown repair at work so couldn't leave right away, so she called CAA. The repair didn't take as long as I thought and I arrived 2 minutes after the CAA booster service. His booster pack wouldn't start the Duramax, so I put my big old booster pack on the second truck battery and it started right up. This experience caused her to want to carry booster batteries for our travels. A major Canadian retailer suggests that their battery packs can start up a 6 liter diesel, so using that and my experience, I opted for 2 of the larger sized lithium packs from Amazon. So far I have not had to boost my truck. But the lawn tractor, the Honda scooter and somebody elses' truck in a campground in Newfoundland have all been easy starts for just one of the packs.

RE: RV Ferry cost to Vancouver Island?

bcferries.com Fares vary, so you will need to input your height, length and number of passengers, and date of sailing.

RE: Electrical Extension Cords

If you are in any Ontario Provincial Parks carry at least one 25 foot 30 amp cord., and a 10 gauge 15 amp extension cord at least 50 feet long. The 15 amp cord won't allow you to use the air conditioner, but it will be good to power everything else. After a few trips you will know what you need. We went to MacGregor Point PP several years ago. Had the trailer cord fully extended, the 25 foot 30 A cord attached and the a 100Foot 15 amp cord with adapter to the 30 Amp cord, and just barely made it to the power post. Now we carry far better and longer cords. At Rondeau last fall I needed the full cord out of the camper and a 25 foot extension. Happy camping.

RE: Installing a safe?

Where ever you put it, do a trial mount first. Make sure you can see the key or dial or keypad clearly, and that the safe will open once bolted in. We carry a small safe as well to store extra cash and passports and other stuff with us. I had the perfect location for it, but I started out by putting it in this "perfect" place and discovered that I couldn't access the key slot to open it and then discovered that even if I could turn the key, I wouldn't be able to open it wide enough to put anything in or get anything out!:S Now on plan D, I think it is. Still not bolted in, just keeps moving around.:?

RE: Jump starter for Dodge Diesel truck 2012

The batteries on my previous truck died when my wife had the truck. The booster service only had one booster pack, that wasn't enough to start the Duramax. I got there shortly after he tried and it took his booster pack on one battery and my booster pack on the other battery to start the truck. I now carry two booster packs in the truck , just in case. Haven't used them on the truck, but have used one on the lawn tractor, and a strangers truck in campground in Newfoundland. I bought them from Amazon, Gooloo was the brand name. only downfall that I have found is there is no cigarette lighter outlet which would be handy for accessory use.

RE: Shower WOnt drain if Gray valve is shut

With my Bigfoot truck camper, if the camper is lower on the passenger side the shower doesn't drain properly, and the water from the kitchen sink sometimes "washes" the bathroom floor. There is very little drop from the shower base to the grey water tank, and the piping is such that this happens. I just make sure that the camper is level, and there is no problem. I would try levelling the coach, and see if that helps.

RE: Maritmes phone coverage

Check out Lucky Mobile. They say they are the Canadian cheapo brand, and you can buy refill cards at several retailers including dollar stores. They are a Bell subsidiary, so coverage is good in Newfoundland. Just remember that the population of NL isn't big, so there are places where there is no cell coverage! Our phones are with a Rogers subsidiary and we quite frequently were roaming at no charge when we went to Newfoundland in 2019.

RE: Cleaning out black tank for winter

My TC came out of a rental fleet. I looked in the tank through the toilet and wondered how clean it was. At the beginning of one camping season I put automatic dishwasher soap in and added several gallons of water. The first stop with a dump station was 3 or 4 hours away, so the tanks got a got sloshing around. I dumped on the way in, and watched the flow through the clear extension pipe. The stuff coming out looked just like it does dumping all the rest of the time, except this was just the residue in the tank. I use this method every couple years and the bottom of the tank looking down the toilet looks "clean". The black tank doesn't need to be clean, but I think removing the build-up on the bottom makes it easier to flush out the crud at every dump as there is less for stuff to get caught on.

RE: Can this weight be right?!?!

That's too much for that truck. You need to go on a diet!!: Kidding!! I think my Chevy is up in that range, but I don't have any of the slips from my last few dump runs. Brian
