RE: auto park

Interesting that a brake shoe that never has to stop a moving vehicle would need replacing. I guess it could develop a stress crack. I had a P30 in the 90’s and at the MV inspection they applied the emergency brake pedal. I had never used it and apparently the cable had corroded and it froze locking the drive shaft (auto park) brake. I could move it to my mechanic’s shop, but I did need new shoes after I got there!

RE: Elon's Starlink Internet Service

Must be nice to have decent cable service. Comcast, our only choice here, is just not good so I use my Mobley plan in a Netgear cell modem to power my home network. I would imagine I would dump Directv and switch to Starlink and stream when the time comes. Dave

RE: Elon's Starlink Internet Service

I have several free and cheap streaming internet movie options from now standard internet wifi. Just sayingWould you mind defining "now standard internet wifi"? It never occurred to me there was any such animal. Do you mean a wifi access point to cable Internet access or something else? Dave

RE: Reservations

We usually tour around Florida State Parks every year before settling in at our 6 week location. We never had a problem getting a night pretty much wherever we wanted to stay, but not so this year. The only parks where there are more than 1 or 2 sites are on the interior, and while we enjoy most all Florida State Parks, we prefer to be near the coast and we found only one night at one park that fit our schedule.

RE: Buying used from Dealership and trading in our C

... One advantage of trade is it is possible to save on sales tax . Tax is on the difference , not on price !And this can be a big deal depending on your state sales tax rate. Dave

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

...plan on heading East in a a week or so. Haven't found a full campground since mid September... I’d suggest calling ahead if heading to Florida. We usually pick and choose days here and there exploring future home possibilities before we land for 5 weeks, but this year we may be staying in Walmarts! All of the state parks are booked solid.

RE: Canadians still crossing into the USA

I have no issue with Snowbirds making the trip. They're adults. If they get sick, it's on them. As long as they don't put others at risk, I could care less. I believe it's each individuals responsibility to make sure they take whatever precautions are necessary to keep everyone they come in contact with safe and keep themselves safe as well. Ive tried not to get involved in these threads, but this really sums up how I feel and why we are looking forward to heading south this winter. Dave

RE: Best mouse trap?

I hope these responses are helpful to the OP. :r Were on page 3 of an often discussed topic. If the OP didn’t get enough direction by now they aren’t going to. Dave

RE: CDN Snowbirds getting their RV's across....

...sure don't want to be anywhere but home if we get sick.I think that is part of the issue. Here in the States a) it probably isn't any worse Covid-wise if we go to Florida verses stay home; b) if we get sick our insurance works everywhere and/or can just hop in the RV and be home in short order with no concerns. I guess a CA citizen could just drive their RV back into Canada since my understanding is they will always let you come home. If a Canadian flew to Florida and got sick I do wonder if they would be permitted to get on a plane and fly home (I hope not :E). Dave

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

My bad. Of course I meant vaccine. A Freudian slipi thought as much, but as with many Freudian Slips, it was worth a chuckle. Dave

RE: Best mouse trap?

A Rat Zapper, while expensive, also works. width=320My choice too. As a kid I was in charge of the snap traps, but I got tired of them snapping (on me). This thing works as advertised. Dave

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

The fun in distributing the virus is still to come. I would not have any faith that the administration can handle the task.I think the administration has done a fine job distributing the virus.:B It's distributing the vaccine I'm concerned about! Apologies to the moderator... Dave

RE: House batteries didn't charge while driving

For me, it was a bad solenoid causing the same problem.Same here. I found out in the middle of the Alcan and used jumper cables to charge the house until I got to a town. Should be easy to diagnose the problem with a meter. Dave

RE: Temporary "driveway" over grass?

I don’t get why you don’t just drive over the grass to get where you’re going. Unless you are going to do it every day (not really “temporary”) you aren’t going to hurt the grass. In 24 hours it’ll be unnoticeable. Dave

RE: Internet for campsite and while en route (travel trailer)

You need to provide your own signal; i.e.: mobile hotspot. For myself, I have a verizon jetpack, I'm sure there are others.Your Verizon Jetpack won't give you connection to the Internet if it doesn't have connection with a tower, which is what the OP says is the case due to weak cell signal. They need to either camp nearer to a tower or sign up for Starlink Beta and hope they get signal when they need it. Dave

RE: A three cylinder Bronco.....a THREE cylinder Bronco???

Engines with an odd number of cylinders are inherently rougher than those with an even number of cylinders. Google it. True, and that was a highlight of a recent review of this engine in an Escape. You could actually see the vibration in the steering wheel at idle. Maybe that’s the real reason for the use of stop/start technology, not to save fuel but so you don’t feel the vibration at idle so much :b. Dave

RE: A three cylinder Bronco.....a THREE cylinder Bronco???

Yes but the inference was that dealers had these vehicles available for sale when in fact they are not available for purchase, that’s all. In the end it makes little difference. Dave
