RE: Mobile RV repair in the Phoenix/Mesa area

We've used Red Mountain RV Repair, but he might be gone north for the summer. He goes up to Flagstaff to avoid the heat.

RE: Fittings for holding tank revision.

Talk to the guys at the welding shop, they can spin weld fittings in that will work with the ABS of the trailer.

RE: Are damage deposits at parks customary?

Wouldn't want to camp in a mobile home park. Extended stay parks use different rules than weekend parks.

RE: RV Rebuild Website - Online soon - Input?

Pulls up fine on Android phone. The device determines the page layout, not something you need to set. Have fun.

RE: Travelling from Nevada to Alaska in the Middle of Winter

We'll keep an eye peeled as you go past Grande Prairie. Safe travels.

RE: What Did I Do to Break My Generators???

Pull out the spark plugs on both machines. You hydro-locked them with oil. Pull the recoil cord to get as much as possible out. Replace the plugs, start them up. Expect lots of smoke, as the oil burns off. Expect to replace the plugs with new ones, after the smoke quits.

RE: Travelling from Nevada to Alaska in the Middle of Winter

Don't be in too big of a rush. It's -42* C an hour from Mile Zero, Alaska Highway, and most of Alberta is experiencing very similar temps. I'd expect cold well south of the border, so be ready for it.

RE: Citation Supreme Truck Camper

Citation's were heavy, comparatively, for the size, but they were well built. Keep on top of the seals around the windows and doors, the lights, and especially the roof hatches. Keep an eye on the roof, they tended to say a bit, over time.

RE: Travelling from Nevada to Alaska in the Middle of Winter

****! Something else to buy. Man! I was asking about this on the forums and they were saying that if I was towing I wouldn't need it, but I feel like you guys have more experience. Any suggestions where I can get one that doesn't involve sticking buttons to the grille? Get a piece of cardboard, sized to cover the rad. Slip it in between the rad and the grille when you notice your heater not keeping the cab warm. Keep an eye on the engine temps, and the exterior temps. Remove as needed.

RE: Travelling from Nevada to Alaska in the Middle of Winter

So what do they do if you don't make it in time?? Turn you around and send you back to see if you make better time on the return trip? LOL You get a nice piece of yellow paper, with the charges listed as well as the court date. At the end of the court case, done over video link, you'll be told what the fines amount to. You may also be informed that you are no longer admissible for reentry to Canada. Chuckle, chuckle, indeed.

RE: New Border Regulations

It won't affect anyone who shipped their vehicles, they only flew to get around the land crossing restrictions. They will be allowed to drive back, unless the rules morph yet again. This newest development is probably 3 months late. The real question is when the ruling elite will get their heads wrapped around the rules they're implementing. While hiding behind fake Twitter posts, to appear at home: Alberta doesn't want Ontario to feel left out:

RE: New project - 2016 AF 1140

Nice! A friend of ours has the turbo 4, and really likes it. I was suspicious at first, thinking back to small turbo engines of the past and how "peacky" their power production could be, but his just crawls over everything. The rig is more capable than we were brave. Have fun with it.

RE: New project - 2016 AF 1140

Jealous of the JLUR. What driveline did you get?

RE: popping and stopping on landing gear?

No grease zerks on the legs, pull off the top covers and have a look. I'm betting you're a prime candidate for hydraulic jack upgrade. Your leg gears and screws are likely worn to failure, but at the minimum are crying for lube. The gearbox will need a good looking at, and grease replacement, too. New shear bolts to finish the list.

RE: Another article on Snowbirds, or the lack thereof

I read where some Canadians are hiring truck drivers that can cross the border for work to transport their RV to a nearby location in the U.S. and then they fly to the U.SWe know two full-timer couples who have done exactly this. I have some sympathy for them as they would not have a place to live in Canada in the winter. No sympathy for those who have a Canadian S&B and fly south anyway. We're not going south this winter for the first time in many years. No sympathy from us either. We were "houseless" for 7 years. Covid closed the borders, we priced out BC, the border jumping RV delivery service, and buying real estate. We bought a townhouse for the winter, which may get flipped in the spring, rented, or saved for next winter. The Alberta government has been on the news saying their vaccination target is 10% by the end of March. I won't hold my breath until our turn comes.

RE: Generator Quit Running

13 degrees? Froze up the propane tanks. I know they aren't really frozen, but you know what I mean.

RE: Supporting camper with cinder blocks??

Cinder blocks are for supporting Camaros in the weeds, not anything of value.
