RE: Terrifying Blizzard Buries Town , video Time Lapse !

This storm was in Newfoundland. We got 39" of snow in just under 24hrs. This was on top of the 65" we've had since Christmas Eve. With the snow we had winds of 110mph, not kph. It was described as a blizzard wrapped up in a hurricane. This was the most snow in a single day since record keeping was started here. We had some drifts that 10ft deep. One thing to keep in mind is the fact that St John's has very narrow streets, leaving no room to put all the snow. It has to be picked up and moved, not just plowed out of the way. You're right, one person died when he tried to walk between 2 small communities during the peak of the storm and got lost. His body was found today by volunteers performing the search. Below is a link to copy into your browser. It has some photos of how much snow we got.

RE: Newfoundland

For NL campsites, check out Triple Falls just outside St Anthony on the Northern Peninsula. We also stayed at Gateway To the North. Also look at Square Pond just outside Gander. Around the east, check out Pippy Park in St. John's. For attractions, look at L'Anse Aux Meadows, the Viking settlement. Near Gander is the Silent Witness Memorial. In the east there are numerous places to see. Cabot Tower, the Geo-center, Water Street etc. For places to eat, look up Raymond's, Mallard Cottage at Quida Vida (pronounced Kiddy Viddy). Roads can be narrow and twisting, rough in some spots. Take your time and enjoy the scenery.

RE: Cell phone Newfoundland

Stay away from Rogers unless you're staying mainly on the Avalon. Our provider offers monthly rate for unlimited talk and text outside of Canada. Cell service is generally pretty good island wide but you will find dead areas and shadows even along the TCH. Bell and Telus provide the best Island wide coverage. Rogers seems to be mainly on the Avalon Peninsula.

RE: Perils of RVing

Hooked up fifth wheel and was backing off the leveling blocks. Heard a HUGE bang, and truck jumped. Didn't realize the fifth wheel hitch wasn't set to automatically lock. I check it every time now!!!

RE: Having trouble locating short circuit

OP here. Jacks work, everything else seems to work except the one fantastic fan, the cover raises but the fan doesn't run. All the lights, the jacks work fine, the other fan works. There is a connection for a powered awning, that was never used. I may have gotten water in the exterior connection? I haven't tried the furnace. I will give it a good shakedown this weekend.

RE: Having trouble locating short circuit

I think I may have had multiple issues. Both a tripped circuit breaker and a short. The black wire I am trying to trace has an inline 25A fuse. This fuse blows as soon as a new fuse is put in.

RE: Having trouble locating short circuit

If you expect consistent wire color codes in an RV you are doomed to disappointment. So don't be surprised that there is no black wire obvious inside the fan housing. Use the ohmmeter function on the DMM to find out which of those wires is connected to the black one. I was thinking this on the way home. I'll try this tomorrow. I was also thinking that the purple and white are for the raise/lower function and not for the fan itself.

Having trouble locating short circuit

I have a 2004 Carriage Compass 30 RLS. Yesterday when I was leveling the camper, I blew a fuse, and all 12V power went off in the camper. The fuse is a 25A on a #10AWG black wire. I went back to the camper today with my multi-meter to find out what happened. Today, I found that everything that runs on 12V works, except one fantastic fan. The odd part is that, when I opened the fan it had two #14AWG wires. One was purple, the other white. The powered cover for the fan is fine, but the fan doesn't run. Should I open the fan itself? Or look elsewhere to find the short. There is a 4A glass fuse in the fan, but this fuse is fine. I have a second fantastic fan which works perfectly. The 120V power is not plugged in

RE: Stinky cat problem

We had a similar problem when we lived out west. We planted a herb called Lemon Balm. It has a fresh lemon scent that isn't over powering. We put one at each end of our flower beds, about 20ft apart and never had any cat problems after. It is an annual, so has to be re-planted each year, but worked well for us. Cats don't like citrus, so they stayed away. Plus, it can be used like any other herb. Cut, dried used for cooking etc.

RE: Odd home plumbing question

We had something similar. When DW did laundry, the floor drain would back up during rinse cycle. The water would rise slowly and would also drain slowly. We eventually had a specialty company come in to clean the drain. They found a few things. The first was a small plate from a children's tea set. The plate was acting like a butterfly valve, the plate was held in place by small, fine tree roots, similar to what downtheroad posted, but more so. Once the drain was cleaned, a camera was used. It found that our drain was shifted from the city main sewer by almost half the diameter of our sewer line, effectively restricting our sewer line where it met the city's main. Call in a company that is capable of steaming, augering your sewer line. Also check to see if they have a camera with recording capability. The recording will give you back up in case your line is off, due to poor installation or problem s with your council.

RE: Critters - Just a Rant

You said that you're not home enough to look after a dog. What about a cat. Our neighbor has a farm cat. Between that and another neighborhood cat, our squirrel population is kept in check. I suggested a cat since they require less maintenance than a dog.

RE: Quebec City Attractions

Also look into the Catholic Basilica. If you like architecture, you will enjoy it. Take trip on the St. Lawrence. There is an old ferry boat converted to a dinner cruise You will get a great view of the Fairmont Le Ch√Ęteau Frontenac, it also has unique architecture. For a once in lifetime experience visit L'Amour restaurant( if it still exists). It is pricey at about $150/plate, but it is an entire evening, best enjoyed with a a few friends.
