RE: Fireworks

Something that has been very helpful to daughters dog is Homeopathic remedy, Phosphorus 30c. She tried cbd and thundershirt and NOPE. However if she doses Phosphorus 30c before the thunder starts (watch the weather!), then there is not the panting and hiding but a relaxed dog. Try!

RE: Wipes!!!

you CAN put a clean wipe in a container of water to see if it actually does decompose quickly or not to determine this.

RE: Windshield sun block

We like our magna shade...after initial set up (youtube) it is easy on and easy off. You can see out of it but no one can see in unless it is night time and you have lights on. Cuts down on heat in front. Expensive but I would get it again.

Do I need to condition my slide seals against drying out?

Heard this on another group and its something we never thought about and we have two slides on our new class A. If so, what do I use?

Want to insulate front of class A (dog house?) with what?

For colder weather camping, we are looking to insulate the front area below big front window of our class A. What does hubby need to use? I assume we remove from inside? Thanks! Donna

ez pass/toll pass placement on class A

I did look for topics on this but no go. Where do I put my ezpass on a class A. The bottom of front window is fairly high up...good enough?

RE: Need big collapsible bowl for salad for 4

Was hoping for a lid and sadly most on amazon are too small. I think I looked there really well prior...maybe have to try camping world to see what they have?

Need big collapsible bowl for salad for 4

I've been hunting for a big collapsible bowl for salad for 4 people...nice sized salads but not dinner salads. Would really like collapsible...roughly 6+ quart size or larger. My non collapsible 9 x 3.5 really is not big enough. I've got nothing so far that is big enough.

RE: Toronto to Newfoundland

Planning on a trip to NFLD in June. What's the experience on the ferry from Nova Scotia. Driving a 24ft Motorhome. Any challenges, things to watch for? Was thinking of coming in from Quebec and leaving by way of the Maritimes but may be too challenging of a drive road wise? Anyone with any thought's?? Thanks Paul We did the trip in 2013 (leaving via labrador to ny thru quebec) with our 24 foot motorhome. I know more paving has gone on since then (but not from lab city to baie comeau). So we were leaving after 6 weeks in the month of June so no snow. The worst part is the road from lab city to Baie comeau. Fast moving trucks with a mission. We happened to hit it right and nothing was immediately hot on our tail (but a ways back was a BIG WIDE mobile housing/office unit heading south). We stopped in manic 5 for the night and I woke at 4am and nudge husband...LETS GO and we arrived in baie comeau without incident. What made the lab city to baie comeau difficult was that you couldn't go fast enough to let the suspension do the work because the road for the most part was ziggy zaggy weaving winding and it was not posssible to get up speed for those parts. That said there were some straight aways. When trucks came booking it we would just pull over to the side as far as safe and crawl...watching for soft gravel. It could be dusty on the unpaved roads...helpful if you have your rv sealed up as tight as possible. We did not get the satellite phone but didn't have problems either...would get it next time. There are not many places to pull off the road on the 380. Might want to carry bug spray/head bug net just in case you have to get out of rv to do repairs so you are no ones dinner. We arrived in NFL around 3 week of May and had it to reservations necessary to go over. But some things were not open (which we really didn't care about anyway). We also visited in 2016 but didn't include labrador vowing next time more would be paved. 2013 we did day ferry in calm sunny weather and back via labrador quebec. 2016 we used a night ferry and made a reservation the day we wanted to return (june with 5 days of rain predicted/had enough rain). We initially did not book a room thinking we could find a bench and lay down but there were none or they were occupied and they frowned on sleeping on the floor but people were on both. We immediately asked about a room and they didn't have any. About 1/2 hour later the desk person came and found me!!! to let me know there was a room if we still wanted it. YES, women don't sleep sitting up.

RE: New Brunswick – – – mid-October

We did an October trip years ago up thru vermont, into quebec and around gaspe' and down thru NB and home to NY...the weather held wonderfully for us. We poked along using our 24 foot class c as a roaming hotel and boondocking along the way. LOVED hopewell rocks.

RE: On demand water heater and boondocking

Hubs did some research on this and Truma ARE pricey and only installable by them/technician. We have decided and ordered an propane/electric standard rv hot water heater....maybe atwood. The one in our old Jayco worked well for us. Hubs will install it when it arrives and THEN we will try the new shower out. Thank you for all your input...confirming they don't belong in most rv's. It should be an option if someone really wants one not standard.

RE: Good Low cost Camping Map Books for The West?

Agesilaus This is what OP asked for: I would like to avoid electronic books and love actual paper books and maps if anyone knows a good resource for low cost camping spots along western routes. I like out of the way routes and stay off the common routes. Even spending extra 2 days getting somewhere is not a problem. Thank you ever so much. He didn't ask for campgrounds...just camping spots and that is what benchmark provides....BLM lands, national forest service lands, etc These ARE out of the way and many times you will have the place to yourselves. We always do a google maps search to further explore the spot before going there to see what we see (like campers in the zoom). Works great for us. This is the boondocking/dry camping category, not campgrounds. So I think I am spot on.

On demand water heater and boondocking

So we are the owners of a brandy new Entegra Vision 27A and it has a tankless hot water heater (girard brand). Formerly we had a Jayco class C 25 feet long and this one is 30 feet long. Hubby is seriously thinking of ripping the girard out as it wastes some much water (about twice)...yeah we can catch the cold gallon of water that comes out when doing dishes or getting ready for shower but it is wasteful! Anybody have any insights that we haven't thought of? Pretty sure we will be taking it out. We typically could last a good week and sometimes more in our Jayco but now not so sure. Donna

RE: Good Low cost Camping Map Books for The West?

having work done on rv while fulltime

considering purchase of new motorhome but WHEN there is something that needs to be fixed after we drive it off lot (or camp there for a few days or do a thorough DIY inspection before purchase/hubby is capable), how does getting them to do work on unit if it is your living quarters? We have a 2005 class c currently and hubby does all work on it. Do you rent hotel?? Do they fix it in a day?

RE: AC on winnebago vista 27pe or sunstar

I've combed rvtrader all over the USA and have not yet seen one with two AC's...hoping for that outcome. Donna

RE: AC on winnebago vista 27pe or sunstar

Okay, thanks everyone. DOUG...if the rv does not have a vent in the bedroom (area of concern for sleeping), can one be added structurally. Hubby could add one to replace a vent but no vent so he is not sure how much of a job that would be. I do like it cool to sleep (ny) and we use it in florida keys in winter (so by april it is HOT).
