RE: Border closings

So are you talking about a one way opening? Canadians can come for extended vacations in the US but US citizens can’t vacation in Canada? I think you would need to make it more like US citizens going to Alaska, if a Canadian wants to snowbird they must reach their destination in four days and NO dawdling. :b Dave

RE: How to remove/prevent standing water at campsite???

Instead of multiple smaller holes I have used a plastic trash can with holes in the side, set in a hole with gravel around the sides, and a pressure treated lid I made with a drain attached to the lid by a short piece of PVC. I put a little gravel around the drain to prevent dirt from washing in. Worked great and could handle and disperse a good deal of water in a downpour. Dave

RE: Food!

One of the best things about RVing is being able to cook your own meals. If your DW has celiac disease you appreciate it even more. Dave

RE: Changes to Snowbird lifestyle and Snowbird communitiess

I'd rather hunker down somewhere warm than somewhere cold. You do the same things you would at home, but no snow to shovel, etc. This is how we feel. We will do our trip north last April in reverse... stay as isolated as we can in our RV for the entire trip. Once we get to our warm spot we will hunker down, but our hunkering will be on an uncrowded beach instead of in front of the fireplace. It does seem a bit silly that our Canadian neighbors are prevented from doing the same thing. Dave

RE: Changes to Snowbird lifestyle and Snowbird communitiess

SD experts continue to debunk the media's twist on Sturgis. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2020/09/08/study-260-000-coronavirus-cases-likely-tied-sturgis-rally/5750587002/ Hmmmmm, the truth appears to have been blocked. Imagine that. Another source: https://www.forbes.com/sites/danielcassady/2020/09/12/did-the-sturgis-rally-cause-250000-coronavirus-cases-heres-why-experts-are-skeptical/#35e8cc6b73a1 Apparently we're not entitled to the truth.Never let one's inability to post correctly interfere with a good conspiracy theory! :B :B :B Dave

RE: Flying Floating Flooring

...I can and have pulled the entire piece of carpeting out of the RV for cleaning. When it gets really dirty, I hose it off and even use a broom with soapy water.And there is one of the best selling points for using a wood product or vinyl instead of carpet. Dave

RE: Flying Floating Flooring

I did enjoy the reference to “engineered artificial fake wood” and “vinyl and carpet” in the same post. Point in fact, they are ALL engineered artificial products - except for the fake wood flooring, which is actually engineered from real leftover wood! :b Dave

RE: Child/baby seat confusion

Owning a Class B I have just a couple of comments. First make certain the RV you rent have forward facing seats other than the two front seats. For example, like many RV's mine model comes with a sofa with lap belts on the side behind the driver. Many Class B's have a sofa in the rear with lap belts, but be aware that your two year old will be riding over 10 feet behind you. There is at least one model I know of with 4 front facing individual seats but they are not common. I doubt the OP will return. This thread is 5 years old and the OP hadn't returned since. On edit: I read the whole thread (good on me) but never noticed the date! There is a similar thread on another forum that is current. Dave

RE: What software are RV parks using to keep track of things?

Pretty strange. In all my years if traveling in never saw anything but a check-in date and a check-out date. Dave

RE: What software are RV parks using to keep track of things?

We pretty much travel exclusively off-season and therefore encounter a lot of empty parks. Because of this campers are often placed more or less in the same areas and I always figured it was to make maintenance and cleaning much easier for a limited staff. Less bathrooms, trash and traveling around to different parts of the park to service emptied sites. Dave

RE: Good Bye Class A forum!

Welcome to the club. Loved the DP but enjoy the spontaneous nature of the B. Dave

RE: How often and how to clean black tank

If the black tank isn't thoroughly rinsed out and sanitized it will stink up the camper. Either you need to inspect your diet or your camper. Your toilet has a water seal that prevents smells from coming back inside. Your tank has a vent tube that prevents gases from trying to find another avenue of escape. If you are getting smells, you've got problems. A properly working RV black tank system shouldn't smell. X2. Dave

RE: 2021-22 Florida and/or Arizona

Hey BarbaraOK - Too bad you went to the wrong Florida. I worked on the Eastern FL coast then owned a home and lived in the Keys. Now we winter on an island on the Gulf off western FL. No bugs, no buttheads (admittedly because there are no public entrances nearby :w). I love the mountains and rivers, but for me there’s nothing that matches the ocean. Dave

RE: Class B or B+ recommendations?

Twin bed or queen. Leave it made up or make it at night. Apartment sized fridge or half-sized. Lots of decisions and trade offs in B. Don’t completely discount wet baths as boaters have lived with them for years. It’s a small space so you need to see what will fit the two of you (+dog). We downsized from a 36 foot with a slide-out to a B to change how we travel with two Labs and a cat. It just took a bit of organizing :B. BTW, a B+ is really a C and almost 2 feet wider than a B, and that matters when you decide to park. Dave

RE: 2021-22 Florida and/or Arizona

I keep looking for a beach in AZ but haven’t seen one yet. Can’t turn around in Florida without tripping over one. All depends on what you’re after. We happen to like the beaches on the Gulf of Mexico. Dave

RE: bike rack on ladder

I too used one for over 30K miles and never had an issue. Dave

RE: Where to Dump?

Our “final dump” before our ferry ride home was always difficult and these days even tougher. I bought a cassette toilet and just empty into the base and dump it into our home toilet. Not ideal and takes a few trips , but our clean out for the sewer is on the other side of the house from the driveway so it works for me. Dave

RE: Travel into Canada

They are good as I can attest. I’ve been caught twice. One in the 70’s I was up front with a crossing agent showing him under the hood of our van when the agent in the back called out “They have weapons”. I put my hands in the air and we walked to the rear. Luckily it wasn’t me that was sprayed with our water pistols. The second time was 20 years later when I was presented with a small can of pepper spray on my wife’s keychain. She swears I put it there. These guys are good! And there is no reason to violate Canadian laws by carrying a firearm. Dave

RE: Covid 19 warning

I was always under the impression that CA health was pretty good. Now I’m confused when JaxDad said: The driver said that while he waiting in the emergency reception area a family of 6 came in showing obvious symptoms of being sick and were seeking testing, they were told it would be $200 per test, plus, plus, plus whatever else they could charge them. So COVID tests aren’t included??? Dave I read that "JaxDad" post as the hospital visit happening in the USA after a minor traffic accident there. That’s the way I read it too. Then we’ll chalk that up to a reading comprehension issue :B. Dave
