RE: Helio travel trailers?

It looks very similar to the [email protected] trailers. We thought that was what we wanted, then we rented one for a week. Dropped it off at the end of the week and never looked back! I am about 5'10" and I couldn't stand upright in the trailer. The one we rented didn't have a toilet or shower and we found it to be small. If it is 2 people there isn't room for 2 to change at the same time.Give some thought to space in the event of bad weather. Basically this is a rolling bedroom. There are people who have the [email protected] trailers and they love them, but it didn't work for us. Good luck in your search. Brian

RE: Labrdor highway from Red Bay to Happy valley...plus 389!

For leaving we were originally booked on Aug 26, and left Sept 1, (Labour Day weekend) It was one of the tropical storms/ tail end of a hurricane, combined with everyone leaving the island for school on the mainland. 6 extra days near Port Aux Basques was frustrating, but there was lots of little day trips and sight seeing, so not too bad.

RE: Labrdor highway from Red Bay to Happy valley...plus 389!

MDK, Yes we took the ferry from Blanc Sablon to St. Barbe. We started in Southern Ontario, stopped in several spots in Quebec, sea kayaked with the whales on the St. Lawrence, then headed east and north, through Labrador , then Newfoundland.14,000 km., 11 weeks. Donna, if you are still following make sure you make ferry reservations well in advance. We were storm stranded in the Codroy Valley for 6 days at the end of August and beginning of September delayed our return from NL.They were taking the people with the reservations made earliest first after they cancelled 3 ferries from Port Aux Basques. We didn't book until we returned from St. Pierre- Miquelon and had to wait for the backlog to clear. Brian

RE: Cell phone Newfoundland

We use one of Rogers spin off little guys. We were in roaming mode almost all the time we were in Newfoundland and Labrador. They have some kind of an agreement with Bell to provide "extended" coverage. There are still parts that are not covered by any cell service, but the locals said there was a push on to extend coverage. Having said that our hot spot on Bell had better reception than our phones at times. Brian

RE: Labrdor highway from Red Bay to Happy valley...plus 389!

We drove the Trans Lab in 2019, late June early July. Quebec part was unpaved from Manic 5 to 50 km south of Fermont. Paved from there right through to south of Happy Valley Goose Bay, then they were working on the road and by the end of 2019 there would only be 100 to 150 km unpaved. From Port Hope Simpson all the way to Blanc Sablon was paved. The real adventure drive is almost all gone now and by the end of 2020 construction season it will be all paved. Quebec 389 had some construction north of Manic 2 almost all the way to Manic 5. By the clear cutting I think they are re-routing slightly and making the road wider,definitely straightening but hard to tell since it was mostly just clear cut and only the beginning stages of road building.

RE: Front receiver on 2012 generation F350

e trailer is good for US based purchases, but I have used Hitchweb.com for purchases here in Canada. No hassles with customs and duty, prices in Canadian dollars and good service. They have a Draw Tite and a Curt shown on their website. On my Chevy I went with the one that sticks down further, but if I were to do it again I would get the one that gives me more ground clearance! Even though it means cutting into the front fascia for the receiver to pass through. Good luck. Brian

RE: Plastic toilet and sink cleaning?

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Just wet, wipe, and rinse. Have used them in both the trailer and the camper. Brian

RE: Postal code

Use the 3 digits of your postal code followed by two zeroes. Ignore the letters. This has worked for me. Brian

RE: Dirt

We bought an Astro turf entry mat when we had a pop up. That got moved to the trailer and we bought another for the camper. Floors look not too dirty, but I dump the Astro turf mat about once a day. Forgot a few days when we were camped at a sandy place. I think I had enough to fill a sand box. That captures it near the door, so I hear you about sweeping. We have throw rugs we use for warmth underfoot, and they can be washed. Brian

RE: Trans Labrador Highway

We just drove the Trans Lab this summer ( 2019). We were in the truck and truck camper. The part in Labrador was fine. By the end of this construction year I think there will be less than 200 km of gravel left. All the rest will have been paved. We were in Quebec when we heard that the Trans Lab had a wash out south of Happy Valley Goose Bay. We started to rethink our options,but our youngest son called to wish his mother a Happy Birthday, and we told him of the problem. He was in Peru on a holiday, but he contacted a friend who works for NL government to find out how long the repair would be.Answer was less than a week, which he relayed back to us. PQ to Peru to St. Johns to Peru To PQ in less than 10 minutes... gotta love technology. By the time we got to the wash out, about a week later, the road was re-opened, and just needed pavement to be totally repaired. The Quebec section of the road is not quite as good. From Baie Comeau to Manic 5 is paved, but just past Manic 5 it is gravel and rough in spots. It continues as gravel right to within 50 km of the Quebec / Labrador border. Brian

RE: Furnace works; then doesn't; works again?

I am in the check the battery camp, but not the 12 volt battery,. Check the battery in the digital t-stat. Even though you say it is a new stat the cheap batteries they sell with anything these days don't last long. And it is a lot easier to check t-stat battery than trailer battery.

RE: Propane winterizing

I always leave the propane on the trailer or in the camper. You may also want to rethink the storage in the garage of the spare cylinders. I have been told that here in Ontario if you have a fire,with the cylinders stored inside, and the cylinders explode you may have problems with your insurance company! Haven't checked with my insurance broker, but I have stored my spares outside for years. Brian

RE: Upgraded TC Taillights to LED

I did that a few years ago, but I only have one per side. The difference is amazing. One of the best "upgrades" I have done. Your iphone's light sensors just got overwhelmed by the amount of light from the replacements. Brian

RE: Perils of RVing

NRALFR reminded me of one.Related to getting home after being in the camper for 4 months, the **** flush pedal wasn't there on the toilet in the middle of the night. It only took 3 or 4 attempts to realize that the house toilet has a flush lever on the tank!:S Brian

RE: Black & Grey tank readings

We bought the Bigfoot TC from a rental place. I don't think renters knew how to dump properly. I put some automatic dishwasher detergent into both tanks, the kind made for a dishwasher not hand washing like Dawn, added 5 or 10 gallons of water, drove for about an hour and a half to campground, dumped on the way in, and at the end of the weekend, and the sensors seem to work reasonably well. I have since done this every year on the first trip out, to get rid of any crud that didn't get rinsed out from the previous years camping. Brian

RE: Campground washroom needs GFCI

Testing is easy . I carry a GFCI tester with me. It looks like a receptacle tester with a test button on top. Plug it in, tells if receptacle is wired properly, push the button and it trips GFCI. GFCI tester I should add, if the receptacle is protected by another device, the problem then arises to find the device, either breaker or upstream receptacle. Brian

RE: It's all ours now!

Wow way to go. After all these years of seeing the white truck with the cap on it in your signature pic. I still can't get used to it not having a cap and having a fifth wheel behind it. Now get out and enjoy the excellent combination you have created. Brian

RE: front hitch

Jebby, Check out www.hitchweb.com Canadian pricing and not bad deals. I got some of my TC gear from them, and possibly my front mount hitch. Brian

RE: Trans Labrador Highway

That happened just before we headed from Quebec north.They had equipment on scene on both sides within a day, then had to wait for water flow to lessen and within a week it was repaired. When we went through there was still equipment off to the side and they still had to pave, but it was open to traffic both ways. Interesting side story. Our son was in Peru to do some climbing, but phoned to wish his mother Happy Birthday. We mentioned the washout, he said let me check on it as he has a friend that works for NL government. Within 5 minutes we had a reply that road would be good by the time we got there. Peru to NL to Peru to Quebec in 5 minutes! Gotta love technology!

RE: Trans Labrador Highway

We drove the Trans Labrador Highway at the beginning of July. Yes the road through Labrador will be down to about 150 km of gravel by the end of this construction season, but the gravel sections aren't bad. That's the good side.Now for the bad side.The road from Manic 5 to almost the Labrador border is still a bad gravel road!And the paved part isn't very nice either.However there were lots of what appeared to be road straightening and widening sections of construction in Quebec. We travel in a Chevy dually with a Bigfoot camper, and a bicycle carrier on the hitch, so about 28.5 feet overall. We had no problems, and you shouldn't either. Just watch the fuel level and fill up at the towns and at Relais Gabriel. It is basically a restaurant and fuel stop at just the right place. Enjoy the trip. Brian
