  1. I just got off the phone with Jon Walker. He was apologetic and explained that having outsourced it to a 3rd party provider (as most development is these days), they didn't realise that the launch didn't including Canada. In fact until they got my email, they didn't know. He went on to say that he understands that the Canadian version would be out later this fall. He also said that if he had known this would not have happened. Sounds to me that he took my comments in the spirit intended and I appreciated him calling.
  2. I read the announcement from Jon Walker yesterday about the new FMCA App. Much to my disappointment I soon learned that it wasn't available to the Canadian members. I mean, seriously? With all the talk about becoming a member driven organisation, how does alienating the entire Canadian membership base help?
  3. Over the years I have utilized both FMCA and GoodSam roadside assistance. In the half dozen or more incidents, mostly for tire related issues, both have performed satisfactorily and got me on my way, as expected. No complaints from me...
  4. I would definitely exchange at a bank or ATM, would not advise using US currency at stores. You could use your CC's though and the CC company will give you a fair exchange, plus their fee which is generally another 2-3%
  5. If Tequila is your drink, I would bring a 40 ouncer each (1.14 litres of alcoholic spirit) to get you thru. Spirits tend to be much higher in price than in the US.
  6. And duty, which often makes it more expensive than the booze in the province your entering...
  7. Per person. You can bring up to 1.5 litres of wine or 1.14 litres of alcoholic spirits or up to 8.5 litres of beer (about 24 cans) each.
  8. Yes but to get to those stations you have to drive into Lk Havasu City and its over 20 miles off I40. A 40 plus mile detour. That alone chews up a good portion of your savings. Like $16.00.or more. By my calculation on a 100 gallons I'm saving $15.75 @ 5% , $5.00 for GoodSam, and the $16 in extra fuel by not driving into town, a total of $36.75.. Now I know i would have got 5% off at the other stations too but still a good $25 saving for me. And no hour detour! And city traffic! Like I said, whatever works for you. I'll stick with my plan.
  9. You could be right however in my 20 plus years of travel I have rarely seen this to be the case. Usually the are competitive. Although I can't see the diesel prices in the Lk Havasu City area at this moment, the gas price of $2.84 at Pilot appesrs to be the cheapest in the area. Whatever floats your boat! Or in this case fills your tank! 😊
  10. I just swipe my GoodSam card, followed by my Visa CC. The price at the pump is reduced by 5 cents forthe GoodSam discount, the 5% CC discount shows up on my CC monthly statement. My GoodSam # is registered on my log in on the Pilot Flying J app, which syncs the receipts. I don't have a Pilot Flying J CC.
  11. You didn't mention how long it ran before it "lugs down to a stop". Could it be the auto choke? I know I had a similar situation on a previous Marquise 5500.
  12. Richard, have you looked on Amazon? I did a quick search and came up with a few different brake and gas pedal extenders.
  13. We've been to many of the Caribbean islands (19) but not Antigua. I'm guessing that its probably as nice as the rest! Likely has the usual amenities and features. palm trees, sand, beaches, tiki bars, restaurants, shops. Did I mention tiki bars? Have fun!
  14. Yeah I use my own Visa card too a Pilot Flying J to get my 5% back. This is in addition to the GoodSam 5 cents off per gallon. I also can use the app to get my receipt.
  15. Joe, Thanks for pointing this out. I have had the app for over a year now and didn't even realize the receipt feature was there.
