RE: Out of Country medical insurance - Covid-19

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, have any Canadians on here talked to their insurance company about getting coverage for the 2020/21 season? Currently Medipac and Bluecross have statements on their websites that excludes Covid from being covered. If that's the case in September I guess we won't be going. Based on the way things are going down there we're not going to gamble.

RE: New Heavy Chevy!

Very nice! Luv it. How many miles on it? Is that yours?

RE: Snowbirding 2020/21

What I am wondering about is all of our Canadian friends. As it stands now, Canadians cannot get out of country medical insurance. Unless that changes, I doubt you will see many of us. We may have to get reacquainted with Canadian winters. That is not the case. Medipac, for example, will still allow new travel coverage BUT will not cover Covid19 illness or illness/symptoms similiar to COVID. This information is stated on their website.

RE: Running refrigerator on house battery, How long?

Lets not make this more complicated for the poster than it has to be. YES you can run your 12V fridge overnight on battery. I've had the trailer sitting for 2 days with the fridge on and no major drain on the battery. Assuming you aren't running any other major 12V appliances during this time and you have a fully charged and healthy battery. I've been doing this for years. I go to the storage lot 24 hours before we pack the fridge. ZERO issues. Guess I should clarify my post. I run the fridge on propane which uses minimal 12V. :?

RE: Quality used Class A's

2016 Ford gets you the newer six speed trans. I wouldn’t go any older if possible. Fleetwood 35K is a 1.5 bath, W/D and couch across from tv and fireplace. Holiday Rambler and Tiffin has the same layout. All have resi fridges, etc. The 16-18 Fleetwood’s had an XL package that gave you chrome mirrors and luggage latches, cord reel, king bed and led under lights (cool). These will put you in the 36 to 38 foot range if you want the W/D and extra 1/2 bath. Newmar and Tiffin should both be considered. The 35K is 35’. The 35k is 36'3". Never assume model number represents exact length.

RE: Extended warranty. What are your thoughts

If I owned a Ford diesel, I would have an extended warranty.

RE: Which Roadside Assistance to select this year

I have towing on my RV and Tow vehicle thru my auto insurance. Towing coverage is dirt cheap, truly don't understand buying GoodSam, AAA etc??? Why? Because most insurance companies don't have the option of purchasing Roadside Assistance. :h

RE: Curt Echo Wireless Trailer Brake Controller???

In an emergency situation and you need to manually activate the trailer brakes, grabbing my cell phone and waking it up to activate the brakes would be a deal "braker" for me. S

RE: 2017 F350 6.7. Inspection?

I'm quite sure Carfax doesn't report regular maintenance.

RE: 2020 Ford 7.3L Ike Gauntlet

I see this as my only option for my next tow vehicle IF I want to stay with Ford. Just can't see myself buying a Ford 6.7. I would always be wondering when the fuel pump is going to grenade. Neighbour here at our park in Largo had his 2016 die last week. The fuel pump took out the fuel system. 30,000 miles on the truck!! THERE WAS NO WATER IN THE FUEL AND WARRANTY IS COVERING IT. IF I go diesel it will probably be a 2017+ GM. S

RE: Auto slider or manual

spud1957 Pullrite and B&W do not have auto sliders for the 2020 chvey YET. They are working on it, but no timeline. He does not have the hitch pucks as stated in his other closed thread.

RE: Auto slider or manual

You mentioned in your other post Demco is the only one. Not true. Pullrite has auto slider hitches as well.

RE: Route to Florida

This year from New Brunswick; I95>I495>I90>I87(toll)>I84>I81>I66>VA15>I95>FLORIDA Not a fan of I84 thru Hartford to Newburgh. Prefer I 90 thru Mass and I87 along the Hudson. $20 toll but worth it to me.

RE: Bent Kingpin?

Good luck with insurance! Nothing for them to pay. Your trailer frame let go. No difference if you broke a spring on your truck. Insurance doesn't pay for that. S

RE: Places to stay for the night around Chambersburg PA

There is a Sleep Inn Carlisle at exit 478. It has RV parking. Also a Cracker Barrel next door.

RE: Air bags or "Bump Stop" type suspension

You are saying your 250 sets lower in the rear than the front when hitched? If so air bags are the BEST option, air to get truck "LEVEL" not unloaded stance!!! If stock shocks add Bilstein's. This combo you WILL thank me. Sad a 250 needs help with that little pin. Just about all Ford's do! Even on the F450 review fish posted, the owner installed airbags. OP, bag it and don't look back! How about a 3500 Ram dually that comes with air bags. Kinds hypocritical calling it sad that a 250 needs bags

Maine to Hershey

Heading from Old Orchard Beach early Monday morning. Usually take I90 to I87 to I84 to I81. Comes with $20 toll. Thinking this time I90 to I84 to I87 to I287 to I78. Might save 30 minutes. Any comments?
