  1. I looked at the Michelin / Continental pricing thru FMCA , and after the us$ and duty and tax plus the us tax , it is cheaper to buy them in Canada at full pop , I did purchase Bridgestone 283A for a decent price , gives us 5 years until I need another set , ...the phone deal does not work in Canada , and I have not found any campground in Canada that offers a discount for camping , most have not even heard of FMCA ,.... and a friend has a towing company , and would prefer to take AMA (associated with AAA) for tow , as he gets paid 3x faster , ….when we travel in the USA for winter we can access more perks , but camping discounts have not been better than what we already have , so no benefit so far , did attend the rally in Indio this year and had a great time , met lots of people , and enjoyed the show The 182 day cut for us allowed in the USA is misleading , as it is a formula of 1/ 3 of the days from last year , and 1/6 0f the days from the year before , and that total is subtracted from the total of 182 days , leaving about 120 days (4 months) when we have about 6-7 months of winter , we have to leave winterized and winterize before we return , either way we take our MH from Alberta to B.C. in late September to beat the chain up over mountain passes , and store in Vancouver until we are ready to leave . We are leaving in February this winter and returning in May , and hope to find a rally between Texas and Washington in that time period Bev and Allen Cunningham F475668 , 1999 American Coach Tradition 40TVS , Cummins 8.3 Alberta , Canada

  4. My 99 Tradition cost $33,000 , 2 years ago. It needed ball joints and tie rod ends at 53,000 miles because of faulty boots. Make sure you check this , they are very expensive. I did all the brakes and the front brgs as well.

  8. we have plank snap lock , if we get tired of it , I would put in vinyl tile
  9. why would you need all of the ac units on at the same time , in your yard , I plug mine in to 20 amp and have not had a problem , fridge on to pre cool and front ac to cool off coach to drive , ac only needs to be on for an hour to cool , fridge over night
