Hi All,

We just picked up our (still new) used 06 17' FD Casita. What a stroke of luck finding it. Original owners decided they just weren't up to using it due to health and age.

We are planning a trip to Nova Scotia and Newfoundland for the month of July. We will keep eyes peeled for other Casitas along the way!

Wondering a few things about camping in this part of Canada. Maybe someone can tell us.

1) Is electrical power in Canada the same as the US? (110V, 60 Hz.) Do they use the same type of plugs or will we need different plug adapters?

2) Is Nova Scotia known for mosquitoes, etc.? What kind of repellant works?

Thanks for any info and sugestions. We will also trip through coast of Maine on the way back.

Of course, we will be taking a number of weekend shakedown camp trips starting very soon!

-- Greg and Chris

rolleyes.gif Same power type, same variety of connectors for electrical and sewer hook ups. We needed the same items in Florida as we did around home or on the East coast. Which ones you use depend upon the services available in each park.

Would recommend 15a and 50a male dogbones that your 30a Casita cable will plug into the other end. I have only ever used mine a couple of times, but they handy to have when needed. You could need them just about anywhere in North America.

Check out theses places to visit.
