RE: pure sine wave 1000 watts! but only 500 watts per plug

The last reviewer said the manual was wrong. Not the same thing, but I have a cheapie MSW inverter that I took apart to look at the receptacles - they are wired in parallel. I guess that's the only way to tell for sure how much power each will deliver. Cheapie inverter has worked well for me for 7-8 years now. Enough juice for 2 TVs and stereo. Will charge laptop PC too. That's all I need - why pay more?

Latest review says one outlet will deliver 1000W

RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

Staying home. Can't even go to New Zealand this winter like the last time we didn't go to USA. My snowblower is tuned up and my shovel sharpened.

RE: Changes to Snowbird lifestyle and Snowbird communitiess

MKDMDKDMKD: what ever happened to civic responsibility? Your last post is very negative and worded pejoratively. I wear a mask because I fear giving COVID-19 to YOU not the other way around. You might welcome getting it now because "you're eventually going to be exposed to it somehow". If EVERYBODY gets exposed eventually, that will be about 380,000,000 deaths worldwide. I'm not prepared to accept that. I'll do what little I can to avoid spreading to others, even you.

RE: Changes to Snowbird lifestyle and Snowbird communitiess

We are banking (er, the right word?) on the US side opening for Canadians by October/November, regardless what Canada does. What would it matter to Canada anyway, as only Canadians would be allowed back into Canada under that new reciprocity.I'm hoping that Canada can implement some sort of rule like for Canadians who went to Syria to fight for ISIS: go to a COVID-19 infested country and you can't come back.

RE: Changes to Snowbird lifestyle and Snowbird communitiess

It's apparent to some that the polls up here are asking Canadians who never cross the border anyway about it, and they are the ones who want to keep it closed, as it doesn't affect them either way.I've been snowbirding every year (except 2017) for the last 17 years and I don't want the border to open. I was in the States when the pandemic was ramping up and obvious (to me) that a very dangerous problem was coming. My neighbors (the ones without the 'u') were engaging in what we considered to be very dangerous behavior (again without the 'u'). They still are from reports in the park. Nope nope nope. Keep the border closed both ways. I'm skipping at least this year.

RE: Changes to Snowbird lifestyle and Snowbird communitiess

Canada has a deal for 20 million doses from Pfizer (and others). There isn't going to be a vaccine properly tested and ready for distribution this year. I'm all in favour of vaccines but would I take one this year? - nope nope and nope. I'm taking at least a year off snowbirding to be safe. Also, Pfizer may be blocked from exporting their vaccine to Canada. It happened with PPE.

RE: Changes to Snowbird lifestyle and Snowbird communitiess

The RV dealers around here all have full sales lots with plenty of new RVs.

RE: Changes to Snowbird lifestyle and Snowbird communitiess

The only reason for a Canadian RVer to snowbird this year is if they are full-timers. Or go to BC where it's 'warm and sunny all year round'.

RE: Changes to Snowbird lifestyle and Snowbird communitiess

The problem is that there are too many Canadians who would NOT quarantine. When they come back in the spring, we'll have a major outbreak.

RE: Changes to Snowbird lifestyle and Snowbird communitiess

I don't think the park we used to go to in Florida cares that the Canadians won't be this winter or ever for that matter. Apparently they're really busy with locals who don't want to travel to get the 'resort' experience. We've given up our 'permanent' site.

RE: Cracked frame Heartland/Lippert - Warranty but no help!

How was your cracks compared to mine? How are things holding up? You happy with it over all? I broke lots of things but not exactly what you had. I broke several spring hangers, one spring and cross-members between the two main frame rails. Broke a wet bolt too but that was a Dexter part. I came across the procedure I linked while dealing with my problems. The hangers and springs were on my previous TH (Victory lane with Lippert frame) and the cross-members on my current Voltage 3950. I know there is one strap on the black tank that is coming apart on the Voltage. We have rust at least as bad as yours. I think the secret is not to buy a rig that was manufactured in the winter. The dealer in Florida spray painted over the frame and a bunch of other stuff and it looked good when we bought it. We love our rig but the Lippert frame is not the best part.

RE: Canadian snowbirds: sell RV in Canada or USA?

The last one I had done on the truck, it was a tailpipe test. The last one on the car was an OBD II check.

RE: Canadian snowbirds: sell RV in Canada or USA?

I just looked at the rules: you need a test if the diesel is registered at over 4500kg. Mine is registered at 4500kg (I know, I know...)

RE: Cracked frame Heartland/Lippert - Warranty but no help!

There IS a procedure for repairing frames at the spring hanger. Ask how I know. Everybody's different but if it were me, I'd take the procedure to my local welding shop and get them to do it. Won't be more than a few hundred dollars. Yes, I know it's under warranty, but sometimes... Lippert Frame repair procedure

RE: Canadian snowbirds: sell RV in Canada or USA?

Ontario stopped doing emissions testing a year or two ago but I have no reason to believe it wouldn't pass a test.

RE: Canadian snowbirds: sell RV in Canada or USA?

The speedometer is close to the bottom of the concern list. Think truck emissions. Looking for a bigger RV?The truck has DEF - I think that's the same as a US truck. Yeah, BIGGER RV. No, actually smaller RV. I had to give up my Class A driver's license so I'm not legal for this rig anymore. I hadn't intended to drive it anymore (just leave it in Florida) but we were so paranoid in March about getting home without contact that we brought it instead of staying in motels.
