RE: US travel to Canada

Going from Canada to USA, on November 24, 2022, I had to have proof of vaccination for the USA border folks.We (both Canajun) crossed into USA on Nov 9, 2022. Did NOT have to have proof of vaccination. Mind you, we were in a truck lane by mistake.What is 'canajun" :h

RE: US travel to Canada

I’m pretty sure that’s over. We crossed both ways a few weeks ago.from what I'm reading in the link that Boon Docker sent you don't have to have proof of Vaccination or a negative test. Was that correct?

RE: US travel to Canada

Thanks boon docker. We had a trip to the Maritimes planned when the border was closed. DW said it's too cold to go now, but hopefully in the spring.(if gasoline is still halfway reasonable). Or maybe we'll head out in your direction, I think gas is a lot cheaper in Alberta than Nova Scotia.

US travel to Canada

Has Canada lifted the ban on visits for US citizens by auto? Is vaccination proof still required to enter?

RE: Alternative to bumper sewer hose carrier

I got a 4" piece of pvc about 6' long, put a cap on one end and a screw fitting on the other end and hose clamped it to the top of the rear bumper. Has worked great for me for over 20,000 miles of travelling. Replaced the hose clamps(screw type) once when they got a little rusty. Gary

RE: Alaska - 2023

Is Canada open for tourism yet? We had planned to do the Maritimes a couple years ago before the border closed. That sounds like one awesome trip!!!

RE: RV registration in SD

When I lived close to the Ohio, West Virgina border many WV residents would register their vehicles in Ohio to avoid the WV personal property tax. When WV finally caught onto this there was a big push to identify these residents, and when found, a hefty fine was the result. Does AZ have a personal property tax you're trying to avoid? If so I would be very careful, but if another reason, why not.

RE: Waste water totes for fresh water

Don't know exactly what you're looking for, but Rural King(if there are any near you) has a 35 gallon stand alone tank with the fill on top and a 2" drain on the bottom. Has no wheels, but would'nt take up much room in the back of a pick up. Search "ace roto mold". Maybe Tractor supply also. GaryOh Forgot-Rural king price about a hundred bucks, Tractor Supply a little more

RE: Booger welded some stuff on the rig today..

You call that welding???? You've got to be kidding!!! ;) No, seriously that is at least a hundred times better than I could do. I'm kind of like you(except for having no welding skills). If I can do it myself I'll do it, and who cares what it looks like. It works for me, and that's what counts. Good job. Gary

RE: Renting out your RV

When I bought our motorhome and called for insurance, the first thing the agent said to me was that if I rented it that I was not covered. If I had plans to rent it I would need to find another company.

RE: stuck dump valve

on my 2019 reflection the black tank valve is stuck closed, there is nothing in the tank except the a few cups of water and plumbing antifreeze from dewinterizing yesterday, but the valve does not move at all, anyone know a way without opening up the underbelly to get this freed up? My story might be different than what you have but on our 2001 alpenlite and after a few winters in Az the rod was getting very hard to pull and push so after emptying the black tank I poured cooking oil in the toilet and let it sit over night and then it worked perfect. had to do every couple of years. Might give it a try. Bottles have gotten smaller so maybe more is better. chevmanInteresting :h How much do you use?(cup,quart,gallon?) and how big is your tank?

RE: Portable Gen Wireless Start Questions

I was excited when I bought my 3400W remote start. I thought all my problems were solved. I could just press a button, run the AC or microwave, crawl in bed after a good meal, watch TV for awhile, then press a button to turn off the generator and go to sleep. NOT! I left the power switch on for one night and the battery was dead as a door nail the next morning. Now I go outside to turn it off and on. The remote dongle lives in a drawer. Be careful not to drain her chassis battery.I think the original battery may not be that great. I now routinely leave the battery switch in the on position while camping and have had no problems. Sometimes, I'll shut it off if I'm in the area during the day, but I don't go out of my way to do it.I assume you replaced the original battery. With what? Did you go with the same size or a larger one? Gary

RE: Portable Gen Wireless Start Questions

Westinghouse also has one. i-gen Like the champs and others, it's a chinese knockoff of honda or Yamaha equipment.I have this model. To use the remote start you have to turn the battery switch, or button on(the red one at the top left on the panel). If left on too long, like overnight, the battery goes dead. So then you have to start it manually. So whenever I want to start it remotely I have to go out and flip the battery switch on. Kind of defeats the purpose of a remote starter. I think I saw some place where you could replace the original battery with a larger one, but I haven't had time yet to look into that. Gary

RE: Rant - getting someone to work on a Class C motorhome

I have a chevy C also. Wanted to change from SAE oil to full synthetic and stopped at the local Chevy dealer to ask about doing that. Got the same answer you did, they don't have a lift that could handle it. Asked where I could have any work done if needed and he pointed down the street to a truck repair shop. Gary

stroke of genius???

Oh great! I guess it could be called a lack of preparedness. But sitting in the trailer watching the sleet and ice fall, realizing that now they are calling for 6"-9" of snow (where just a few hours ago they were saying just a period of freezing rain for our area), I realized that one of the propane tanks was empty and the other less than half full. Also hardly any food in here. Extremely limited water. I do have a small ceramic heater, but they're saying that there will probably be power outages. The roads are virtually unpassable due to the ice buildup, but probably wouldn't do any good as most of the stores(including the propane dealer) have closed early. No TV reception and the radio just works a little. What was I going to do?? Then the stroke of genius hit! :SI'm just going to open the door, walk(or slide) across the driveway, go in the house and sit by the wood stove and see what DW is planning for supper tonight :W:W. Praying all of you in the storm area will be safe and warm. Gary

RE: pocket knife

redcatcher, you're right on not carrying the p-38 in your pocket. I probably learned the same way you did-experience. And it only took 1 lesson

RE: pocket knife

Carried one thru the Nam and still to this day.garmp, what was the knife called, a pocket knife, I'm guessing it was Vietnam era, that was metal on both sides(possibly stainless) and had multiple blades etc. Sort of a swiss army knife, but it was US military I believe. I have a couple around here somewhere. I think it was known by a number but I can't rememeber it. Also just thought of the little canopener about an inch long with a hook on one end that was known by a number. Do you remember what it was. Gary
