    was building a travel trailer today, sold to a dealer in Quebec. apparently, you guys have some sort of special 110v wiring that we have to do. different codes or something. i noticed it on the build sheet, and said "oh ****, this one is Canuckian [requires changing a rather heavy spool of wire at the end of the roof jig- about 200#]"... the guys just looked at me like i was retarded, and responded, "what do you mean? the only thing special about this unit is that its meant to meet specs for Canada." NO **** ACE! i just told you it was Canuckian. how can nobody else in the world know what terms like this mean?

    Must be bi-lingual wiring, which would explain why it weighs so much more...:whistle:

    alright smartass... :rolleyes: it doesnt weigh more... something is different with the ground wire in it, and the insulation. the entire spool of wire (US or Canadian) weights about 200#.:doah: :lol:

    Most people look at me funny when I say I'm from Kalamazoo. Then they say I thought that was made up for a song. So thats why I said their really is a kalamazoo
