  1. Who, What, When, Where or Just Lets Talk

    By the way Bill, thanks for the tip on this RV Park just outside of Ottawa. We often head into Ottawa for the weekend, would love to stay in the RV rather than a hotel. I didn't realize it was there.
  2. Who, What, When, Where or Just Lets Talk

    I'm thinking the $1.299 is in Canadian. We reside about 2 hours west of Ottawa and that's what it is here.
  3. Slides will not retract

    Glad to hear that your slide issue is resolved! Thanks for letting us know.
  4. Adventurer Whole Side Slideout Finger Pointing

    Ok, thanks for letting me know.
  5. Adventurer Whole Side Slideout Finger Pointing

    I have a 2010 Itasca Suncruiser 37f with the full wall slideput on the drivers side, same layout to the Adventurer. My slide is powered by powergear. I have some sync issues. Is this the same system? I do not have issues with it moving out after retracted. And no leaks.
  6. Who, What, When, Where or Just Lets Talk

    I take it by this you mean Miles Per Litre? that's pretty good, I barely get 2!
  7. Yeah, that's possible...
  8. A friend of mine got his new cards today for his renewal. Out of curiosity he decided to look at the coverage. While doing so he realized his plan no longer covered motorhomes. He called to enquire and they told him that you now have to order the "Auto and RV Platinum" package to get Motorhome coverage. All other packages are just for towables now. Apparently this changed mid year. At $159.95 a year, not so much of a deal!
  9. You got that right!
  10. FMCA Roadside Rescue question

    Yes, if my memory is correct, I believe it goes into effect 2 days after you sign up.
  11. Recommendations- Nova Scotia

    I would say yes. In most provinces supplemental brakes are required on anything towed over 2000#. 1500# in some. Regarding desertdeals post above, commercial trailers requirements are totally different, more stringent, and don't apply to you.
  12. Slides will not retract

    KL Parker, I could be wrong but will be interested to know how you make out.
  13. Slides will not retract

    That's your issue, not enough juice in your batteries. Hydraulics will drain a fully charged battery in no time, never mind one that's down. Start you coach and try again.
  14. Slides will not retract

    What model Itasca? I assume hydraulic powered slides? Do you run your MH engine when operating slides? If so,, have you checked your coach batteries? Sounds like a voltage issue to me.
  15. RV/Truck washing stations

    As mentioned in past posts, we have frequented Blue Beacons in our travels every year. Out of the dozens of washes we have had, only one bad experience similar to Brian's. Was at their Monee, Illinois location, I-57 at Exit 335. Most times they use brushes in combination with their sprayers in this instance they didn't. Needless to say I wasn't happy either so I emailed Blue Beacon at wash@BlueBeacon.com. to complain. Got a letter from their president apologizing and a free wash to make up for it.
  16. Loose mirror on Thor Aria Motorhome

    Rob, isn't your 2018 Thor Aria 3401 still under warranty? I would be taking it back to the dealer to fix before I started drilling holes and adding steel plates. just a thought..
  17. What a Great Company BlueOx!

    Agreed!
  18. RV/Truck washing stations

    Another option is Blue Beacon Truck washes. about 100+ locations across the US and Canada. To find a location near you or on your travels, go to http://www.bluebeacon.com/ for more info or download the Blue Beacon Truck Washes app from Google Play or I tunes. Most are located right off the interstate. Our unit is 38 feet, with our toad about 62 ft. no issue getting both washed, usually runs about $50. They generally do a good job.
  19. 1st MH Road Trip w/ mileage

    Yup, been there, done that! We used to travel and sightsee 20 years ago just like Clark Griswold! On vacation we'd spend 2 or 3 weeks cramming in as much as possible. As it turns out, missed a lot of the really fun and interesting stuff! Much prefer a slower pace, way more fun!
  20. 1st MH Road Trip w/ mileage

    I should have mentioned that we never do more than 250 - 300 miles a day. Leaves lots of time to stop and never a missed reservation. Bill, 650 miles in a day? That's way too much for me and the Mrs.!
  21. 1st MH Road Trip w/ mileage

    From our very first adventure to present day, I have always found that planning for and reserving overnight stops in advance ensures a stress free and enjoyable journey. We seldom "Wing It". Whether its a quick overnighter at Wal-Mart or a stop at a KOA, knowing in advance our destination each day really puts us at ease and we spend more time exploring the country along the way. To us "Winging It" is reserving at a KOA or Good Sam park the night before.....
  22. Have you contacted Winnebago in Forest City directly for assistance?
  23. Lost SOME Power in Motor Home

    Glad it turned out to be something simple!
  24. Lost SOME Power in Motor Home

    Sounds to me like you lost your 12 volt DC power? Is your battery disconnect switch off? Did the breaker to your converter trip?
  25. RVing related websites

    Other than the FMCA forum, I like the Winnebagolife site. https://winnebagolife.com/ it has many feature articles and videos focused on RV Life, travel and destinations.
