Trip planner map

Is there a way to print the actual map portion on the trip planner program as well as the written direction?

RE: Health insurance.

We use SnowbirdAdvisor Insurance, their insurance carrier is thru Manulife and they cover pre-existing conditions and cover up to 10 million $. We have used them for a couple of years now, we can still travel even with DW medical issues. Web search Snowbird Advisor for free quotes etc.

RE: Sights along Lake Superior

The scenery north of the Soo is the best anywhere, Lake Superior provincial Park has a few nice spots to check out, Old Woman Bay, Pictographs. Whiteriver is home of Winnie the Poo bear with a nice little park, we stop to eat lunch there! Ouimet Canyon is very cool but if you are towing you have to leave the trailer etc in a separate parking lot - tight corners and a small parking lot at the canyon. Terry Fox Monument is a must as is Kakabeka Falls about 15 Km west of Thunder Bay. Rossport is a nice scenic area as well. Camping though - many campgrounds are closed or closing middle to the end of September, best to check the web sites for dates.

RE: Weight distribution hitch removal and storage

Nice, what a great idea. It's not just the grease but the weight to carry it - Backs will thank you!!

RE: Month long stays w/o the rv

Try VRBO (Vacation Rentals By Owner) or similar site. they have all locations and price ranges. We go to Scottsdale for the month of April staying in a condo rental, great city, great weather and reasonable price. Start looking now as short stays are harder to find, most rentals want 3 month stays. Good luck and have fun!!

Removing debris from slide out

Have been searching for a way to remove debris such as twigs and leaves from the top of the slide out without hauling a ladder with me. I do not have a awning cover on the slide out, was hoping to find a brush or other tool - any suggestions? thanks

RE: Sink covers on or off

We take ours off and store them otherwise they end up on the floor and under the table.:(

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2019

We went to the Yukon/Whitehorse in 2016. Just pulled out our old maps and information books as we are starting to plan for this summer 2020. Not sure the month we are going yet and as long as health holds up, we should make it happen. Rick

RE: Thinking About Nova Scotia/PEI July/Aug 2020

We have been researching the same area as well, I downloaded the travel and tourist brochures on each Province website. They have many recommendations for all types of travelers, what to see, what to do, where to stay etc.

RE: Gas discount

Where I live regular gas costs me $1.35 a litre or $5.10 a US gallon. So paying $2.39 and then saving 5 cents on top of that is like winning the lottery, LOL :)

Gas discount

Just joined Good Sam and received my card days before we left to travel to Colorado by car. It was great to get a 5 cent discount at Pilot and Flying J. Thanks for offering this, every little bit helps. Thanks Rick

RE: Air Conditioner leaking inside...questions

We had a Jayco with a A/C that leaked inside as well, it was the bolts holding it that were loose and did not compress the gasket at all. How the A/C unit stayed on the trailer going down the Hwy was a miracle.

RE: Best way through St. Paul

The route H. Cramer stated will work, just watch getting onto 35N I believe, the on ramp is very short and people are trying to get off as well at the same time. We almost met our maker a couple of times. We now go up Hwy 101 to Mora then to 35N to Duluth, a lot less stress...

RE: Curious how RV sales in Canada are doing these days?

Locally people seem to buying RV's and prices seem reasonable. Lately it is getting harder to get a last minute campsite, now you have to plan a little further in advance. Couple of years ago you could decide to go camping Friday morning and just go, not now???

RE: Whitehorse-Dawson City-Tuktoyaktuk

Sounds like a great trip, we are talking about going to Dawson City next summer but didn't want to do the Dempster HWY to protect the trailer - we may have to rethink that leg of the trip. Thanks for the advice on stops too.

RE: I 70 west of Denver .. vail. Pass..

Just returned from that area, yes many pot holes, some very big and deep. Didn't sustain any damage but boy did they rattle the teeth.

RE: Black holding tank censors

Same as MFL here. Dump your tanks, add a few gallons of water. Add some Dawn Dishwashing Liquid or Laundry Detergent, travel to your next destination. If you do this every time you travel, sensors will work. Do this in combination with your black tank flusher, backflushing from your grey tank, and even use the toilet wand on the end of a garden hose occasionally, all this will help keep your tank clean and sensors responding better. That is a good idea with the soap - thanks

RE: Well.....we've done it again

We had a pop up as well, then a travel trailer that was parked at a camp ground. After the kids grew up we wanted to "camp" again so we got a 17 foot hybrid trailer which we used for 7 years and really enjoyed it. A couple of years ago we did a 25 day trip to the Yukon, after we got back the first thing we did was get a 27 foot travel trailer - size does matter!!
