    Yup, sorry about that! If you grocery shop at Walmart you'll find the experience very similar to the U.S., just a slightly different selection. And likely cheaper for most items once you you factor in the U.S. to Canadian exchange on the dollar, except chicken and dairy, of course,,,

    Milk is exactly the same as in the U.S. Whole, 2%, skim, etc. Sold by the liter. Just pricier. All dairy including cheese and eggs are regulated products and artificially priced to supposedly make sure the farmers make a decent living. Like the fairtrade concept. Same for chicken. More like the cartel concept if you ask me...

    Super Bowl

    We didn't get a chance to tune in until halftime. Really enjoyed the show and the last half. Maybe that's because we missed the boring first half?

    Do Not Buy A Winnebago 5th Wheel!

    It sounds to me that you are very lucky you bought a Winnebago. From what you say, they stood behind their product and went out of their way to fix it for you, at their cost. Although at some inconvenience to you. I can't tell you about how many posts I have read on other RV forums where folks who have bought other makes can't get warranties honored or get warranty service at all. If you had bought a different make, you may have been SOL. Over the years I have bought Winnebago products, have had issues with Winnebago products, but have never had as issue getting Winnebago to stand behind their products.

    David, If you are up for a side trip to PEI, very nice RV park not far from Summerside, right on the ocean. In fact 3 beaches surround it. Check out Twin Shores Campground at https://www.twinshores.com Large park, full hookups, 50 amp. Lots of activities, sightseeing, fishing, beaches, golf, etc.

    Cabin Fever "2019"

    Buffalo? Heck no, they have more snow there than I do here! Something called the "lake effect". Headed to Bradenton Beach area, Florida. going to spend a few months there. and then up to Myrtle Beach for a month. By the time we get back it'll be May and spring should be well underway. At least that's the plan..

    Boatman, good luck with your repairs. Unless you have access to a heated garage, best you can do right now is try to seal up any leaks and wait until spring to repair. Keep in mind that there could be many other sources of water intrusion other than the roof. Best to check all roof seams, especially where the roof meets the walls or end caps, and seals around any wall mounted items directly above the damaged area such as windows, mirrors, marker lights, awning supports, exhaust fans, etc. Carl, happy to share. This type of damage was at first a huge mystery to me too. Took me quite a while to figure it out myself.

    Stranded in Suffolk

    Just a couple of questions. Assume this is the Ford F53 chassis, was the MH motor running at the time you operated the slide? Parking brake on?

    The holes are caused by droplets of water in the walls expanding while they freeze causing the exterior surface to pop out. That's why they all look to be about the same size and are round. Very common issue in older MH's found in northern states and provinces.

    I had the same issue on a previous "new to me" 2001 Itasca Suncruiser. I came to realize the damage to the sidewalls was caused by water infiltration thru several sources. One was a crack in the skylight over the shower (which allowed water into the roof and then into the wall panels, another was thru leaky top window seals in the bedroom wall, another thru compromised mirror mount seals, another thru compromised awning arm mount seals. Once I had all the leaks fixed, I then sanded the damaged wall areas, used fiberglass auto body filler to fill all holes, sanded as needed, and finally repainted (sprayed) all repaired areas blending the paint to match. Came out really nice, MH looked like new and we never had a repeat of the issue again.

    Single Phase Electrical in Coaches, Why?

    Yeah, we can always make 30 amp work if we have to..

    Single Phase Electrical in Coaches, Why?

    That's odd. Almost everywhere we stay 50 amp service is available. We mostly stay at private CG's.

    Carl, hate to have to be the one to point this out but your pricing is off. Gas today is currently just under $1.00 CAD. That about $3.78 per gallon CAD. At today's exchange rate of $1.357 USD to CAD, the in USD is $2.78 per gallon. Now that is still more expensive than in the US. its $2.26 per gallon in Maine, but the good news is that Halifax is only about 340 miles from the border of Maine, so Tim will likely only have to buy a tank or so at the $.50 per gallon price differential.

    Fuel cans

    Usually travel with mine sealed right. I believe leaving the vent open, on those cans so equiped, will just cause you to loose gas as the gas will evaporate. Newer can don't even come with a vent cap, the vent is built into the spout.
