RE: Hauler to get my trailer from Florida to Canada?

The trailer WAS bought in the USA but it has already been imported by me into Canada last year. It has a Canadian ownership and Ontario plates. I was thinking about trundling over to the border and asking CBSA if I could meet the driver / trailer right at the border and the driver could turn around immediately. I don't know if it's possible - there is a 14-day mandatory quarantine. I would be willing to do it (again) but a driver wouldn't. A professional driver is exempt however. Dunno dunno.

RE: Hauler to get my trailer from Florida to Canada?

Yes, onsite storage is another option we're considering. The RV park has a storage lot - it's a motorcycle friendly park so there are many cargo trailers in the winter season.

Florida to Canada. 7x16 cargo trailer. Insurance on me.

RE: Hauler to get my trailer from Florida to Canada?

I considered selling it but I have no ideas how I'd actually be able to do it. Gotta get my stuff out of it; border closed; etc.

RE: Hauler to get my trailer from Florida to Canada?

It's a brand new cargo trailer with our golf cart in it. Hopefully shipping will be a lot less than it's worth. width=800

Hauler to get my trailer from Florida to Canada?

I'd get it myself but the border is shut and I really don't want to go to Florida at this time anyway. When we left FL in the spring, we were going to leave our 5er but we left our cargo trailer on our site and brought home the 5er so we wouldn't have to stay in motels and eat in restaurants. Now the cargo trailer is sitting on our site attracting full rent. Normally wouldn't matter but I don't think we'll be spending the winter in USA so I don't want to pay rent for a site I won't use. As the subject says, are there services that will haul an individual's trailer 1500 miles and across the border. I know there are ones for RV manufacturers. Cost if they exist?

RE: Good Wi Fi for RV: Is it Possible?

If we're parked for a while we arrange for cable internet or dsl.

RE: Need help with water connections

Don't turn on the water heater until it's filled.

I fear our snowbirding days may be over. With the COVID-19 pandemic now looking like it's going to take a couple of years to run its course, I think we'll give up our permanent spot in Florida. No point in making the final decision right now because we have no way to recover our trailer from down there. Hopefully there'll be a lull between waves where we can get it.

RE: Lifting fifth wheel

Sometimes you just get lucky changing TV's! I didn't make any changes to our new 2016 Ram 3500 and still level.Do you get a lot of people flashing their lights at you if you tow at night?

RE: turn on camera for video conferencing

My phone is so old it wouldn't even load Zoom - incompatible Android version.

RE: Windows 10 Quick Assist for quarantine support

Good to know if I ever go back to Microsoft based products. But why would I?I would imagine that Apple offers the same complete access so that someone from their Genius Bar (no doubt working from home now) can help you through your problems. Pretty sure he was saying that Apples don't have problems.

RE: EZ Flex Dexter broken suspension bolt

The problem with replacing all the bolts is that most of them came pre-pressed into the heavy duty shackles and are probably not replaceable. There are only six stand-alone bolts like the one that broke. In my previous experience, the shackles are much more likely to fail than the bolts and I don't want to go back to thin ones. I could replace the 5 other stand alone bolts I suppose. width=800

RE: EZ Flex Dexter broken suspension bolt

I put my grease gun on the broken bolt and with very little pressure, old grease came out. width=800 In my opinion, the center hole in this bolt was drilled too far and that's why it broke. It looks like the hole is about 3/4 across the bolt.

RE: EZ Flex Dexter broken suspension bolt

I used to grease the suspension twice a year. This was the end bolt on the 3rd axle - the easiest of all to do. The rig had been sitting for a year and a half in Florida humidity when I noticed the broken bolt.

EZ Flex Dexter broken suspension bolt

Here's something new to look for: height=800 Both ends of the bolt (& nut) were there but on my pre-drive inspection I noticed that the ends were not lined up. Anyway, it snapped in the middle where the grease comes out.

RE: Winegard SensarPro wall plate problem

I replaced the cable on the antenna and the connector on the RV end. With the Jensen wall plate in, I got 10 channels on one TV and none on the other. With the Winegard back in place, I get 14 on both TVs. That's about as good as it gets around here so I guess I've licked the problem. Now if I could only decide how to hook up the radio.

RE: Winegard SensarPro wall plate problem

I got up on the roof and pulled the dicor off the join in the coax. I could see that the dicor had shrunk and there was a very small gap that could let in water. It was a challenge,, but I managed to disconnect both cables from the female cable joiner. There were no center conductors in either cable. The female was rusty at both ends. I guess when I twisted off the cables, the center conductor stayed rusted in the joiner. My next step is to install new weatherproof coax ends and a new female joiner. I love doing fiddly stuff like that lying on the RV roof, not :( Incidentally, the coax connectors (one from Windgard and one originally from the RV manufacturer) were not weatherproof.

RE: Winegard SensarPro wall plate problem

I put the original Jensen wall plate in to see if it worked any better and that's what was there when I took the voltage readings. When I took the 12.6V reading at the plate, I used a 2 foot coax jumper I had lying around. I could put the Sensar Pro plate back in and I probably will but I'm really thinking I need to get up there and check the connectors in the coax.
