RE: British Columbia, Canada

We stayed at the Othello Tunnels Campground back in 2009 and found it nice. It's not a resort but then we found that Canada campgrounds don't really go into that sort of thing. They kinda expect you to stay out touristing most of the day and relax at night.

RE: Air Conditioning Problems

Is rhe rear of your unit much cooler than the front? That is normally the situation in our coach and we found out when we were in 100+ in Redding, CA that placing a 20" box fan in the doorway of the bedroom blowing towards the front pulled that cool air towards the front sufficiently for us to be comfortable -very cheap temporary fix for a temporary problem.

RE: Replace RV Refrigerator with Residental Model

We replaced our Norcold 1200 with a Whirlpool WRS342FIA 22 cuft in 2013 and haven't looked back. We had to install a side by side since the reefer wasn't in a slide and didn't have enough room to open a drawer freezer. The dimensions on it are 32 3/8 deep without handle, 65 7/8 high and 32 3/4 wide. It fit in the old space with very little modification of the woodwork. The doors are completely outside the cabinet. That same model is probably not still available but you should be able to find the dimension guide available for most any model you wish. We also changed our 2000 watt MSW inverter out to a pure sine wave but many just install a 1000w PSW for the reefer only.

RE: Any American full-timers have experience w/ Tax Exclusion?

Also, if your doing work in Mexico and Canada AND being paid by companies in those countries AND paying income tax to those countries, that would be the only way you would qualify for a foreign income exclusion. If your income is from american companies while you are working for them online, you have no foreign income regardless of your location while earning that income unless you are paying foreign taxes on that income. Check out Form 2555 and its instructions and you will see what requirements exist.

RE: Any American full-timers have experience w/ Tax Exclusion?

You may want to start your research at the IRS.

RE: Help finding nightly parking for our caravan

That trip looks to be about 2500 miles over almost all interstate 5 and 40, and if you average 60 MPH you would have four 600+ miles a day with three nights along the way. Myself, I would try to average 50 MPH (especially in a caravan) and add an extra day for five 500 mile days and four nights. Whichever you choose, I would then use Google Maps to enter that trip with possible stopover points (right-click on a map spot and "add a destination"). In the left pane it will show you the entire length, in miles of the trip and you can click on the Details and it will give you the miles between each stop. You can also left-click on a stop and drag it back and forth on the route to change where the stop is. You can then do a google search on the map for fairgrounds in the area of each stopover for fairgrounds and then check their websites for possible parking/RV sites. You may also find that stopping at truck stops is a viable option and you would have showers and food available there. The problem with a truck stop is that you will be traveling long days and parking places can become scarce as the evening approaches. Good luck with your trip! We have stayed at the Ukiah fairgrounds a couple of times and if you haven't, you might give it a look to see what a fairground RV park might look like.

RE: Charleston SC

We normally stay at Oak Plantation just west of Charleston and an easy drive into town. We can usually get in to it when James Island has no room. It has a variety of sites, most of them a little larger than the normal RV Park and right on US 17 so easy in and out.

RE: Poor mods

You get that message when you click on the Notify Moderator link at the top of each post. The notification works but you still get the message as if it didn't.

RE: Maggie Valley - Hendersonville

You may want to have a look at Trails End RV Park, just a little ways from Maggie Valley on the way to I-40. We spent six months in 2017 and are repeating that this year. Good clean 50 amp FHU back ins in a quiet, beautiful park with great management. No restroom or other amenities

RE: Who really cares about what forum a thread is in?

I have 16 forums I am interested in and on my MyForums page. Each time I come to the forum I check the new posts on the MyForums page. If a new topic is not in one of those forums, I will not see it.

RE: Auxiliary satellite input connections?

Most of us use an A/B Switch to enable switching between two satellite feeds with the push of a button.

RE: 2-3 Day Trip into Canada

Just remember your passports, no guns, and vegetables or fruits may also not be allowed - plan accordingly.

RE: S OR to Redwoods

US 1 near Legett and the GG is twisty but doable. As in 15 MPH switch backs. Not a typo. Do not take 101 through SF, instead after the GG take the second right onto 19th Ave/US 1 to 280. Or if you want turn right on Geary to the ocean which will merge with US 1. Mid day only about 6 miles to 280, stay in the center lane. Then 85 in SJ. 37, 80, 780, 680, 101 slightly better if it's not a Sears Point race day. 580, 880, 101 and you deal with Berkley and Oakland. All about the same distance and time except for traffic. GG south bound toll due but NO cash or toll takers S bound. Drive through, pre pay, post pay, pay online or get a bill unless you have FastTrak. Right lane only both directions. For others: Almost all of US 1 north of SF is prohibited for MH's over 40'. As is US 1 south of Carmel, steep drop offs so some take it once and never again. No N bound toll on the GG. I think you mean CA 1 (CA Coastal Highway) unless they have moved US 1 from the east coast! :N

RE: 2006 Thor Hurricane 34N roof air

Shut the vents on the A/C unit itself, should re-direct air to the other vents That's the way our 2006 34N worked. You have to close the vents om the A/C so it will send that air flow through the roof ducts.

RE: Campground Breakers - EDITED

Since you have a Progressive Industries unit, I would keep an eye on how much current both lines are drawing so you could tell management, or the electrician, how much current was being pulled when the breaker tripped.

RE: Lion Safari UT - new tech battery, not cheap

Sigh another phosphate battery... where are the manganese batteries already!? Just another Battleborn / Relion nock off? No link and I'm too lazy to googel. edit: I did a google for lion safari and this was the result, don't see any mention of batteries: Ah, but if you just add 'battery' to that search you get Lion Safari UT - Lifetime Battery.

RE: Park daily fees & camping

Get the Discovery Pass - it will pay for itself quickly. Fees are per day/per person and add up quickly. Being able to see the historic sites will also be covered.
