I notice your Rally is the weekend after ours in NY . Wow only 3hrs to the next Rally !!! Hummmmm :rolleyes:

01-17-2010, 12:26 PM
Freckles I noted to our members and on the form that our rallies are back to back hope it gains visitors for both.
I also should mention that we are planning our 2011 rally in Windsor On the weekend before the National rally in Goshen. This would be a great place for any US member or Canadian Member east of Detroit Windsor to take a break on their way to Goshen for a fun time.

01-17-2010, 09:20 PM
Checked it out 3hrs 12 mins or 155.26 miles between Rallies for this year !! Sounds good for 2011 plan to attend National Rally in Goshen.

Hello to all Heartland owners, as Wayne has mentioned we have a fun weekend booked at Kingston KOA and what a great opportunity to meet fellow Heartland owners and to make new friendships that could open the possibility to have new traveling friends, it's always nice to have people to travel with to new locations.

I hope to see you in Kingston!

Hi Everyone
Don't forget to contact me and let me know after you register with KOA. So far we five couples that have registered, list above. Also anyone you knows any company where they can get give away items for our grab bags or items for door prises it would be appreciated. Feel free to get what ever you can. Once Lyne and I have worked out some more details I will update the page. I will send everyone attending an registration form.
We are off to a GREAT start with five already and we are personally looking forward to meeting many new people and enjoying Kingston. Dont forget all Heartland owners from any state or province are welcome.

wow...what a last 2 weeks it has been. i had a dead battery and a weak 2nd battery which fried my ficum(fuel injector module) and then they found two dummy plugs leaking and a fuel injector seal leaking which has all been fixed, but truck still not starting right. still in shop with an oil pressure issue. now into 2nd week of not having my truck. if it never rains it pours. just glad it happened now before rally. how often do you other diesel owners put in an additive in your diesel fuel? i was told i should every 3rd fillup. any opinions or advice out there. thanks and see you all in kingston!

I never used to use conditioner but had a problem with dirty injectors. A friend of mine who own a trucking company said he would not run his rigs without conditioner. He recommended Power Service PS Diesel Supplement with Cetuneboust. It come in a white plastic container. I but the big one and measure for use. In Canada you get it at Cdn Tire or Walmart. In the US lots of places. I have used it for two years and have had no problems. I put it in with every fill up. When you boot it you clean the injectors everytime. When someone is tailgating I sometimes give them a shot of black smoke. (Bad ME)
At the National Rally in Branson 2 years ago I had a failed injector and had to spend an extra 3 days there.

Wayne; I just seen the thing on the 3 hour boat cruise. Patti and I will be there !!!

Hi Wayne & Gayle,
Just wanted to say thanks for such a great job with the rally. Your warm and friendly personality set the tone for the entire weekend. We had a fantastic time, and the weather cooperated too. We met some great people and even learned a few things. Looking forward to next year.

Had a wonderful time at the Rally. It was fun being the biggest and smallest (& only) travel trailer there.

It was great meeting you guys, we had a great time. See you next year. BTW if you are ever travelling in Eastern Ontario why not plan a stopover at our park. We are at Grenville Park which is right on the St Lawrence River just off the 401 at the exit to Ottawa and bridge to U.S. Its a beautiful treed park, 2 beaches, activities, etc;
Dave, Lyne, and Mesmer :)

08-23-2010, 07:22 AM
Why is everyone wearing jackets? Could you send some of that cool air to Texas. And we can send some of this hot air your way. LOL

Glad yall had fun. Rallies rule.

08-24-2010, 05:48 PM
Hat off to Wayne, Gayle, Lynne and Dave for planning and executing a great rally. We have a good time, met super 'Heartland family members" and want to thank all for the information shared. This information gave us an excuse to purchase some much needed tools. Hopefully this was just the first of many rallies. Looking forward to Windsor and Goshen in June 2011.

08-24-2010, 08:19 PM
Patti and I got home tuesday afternoon. It took us a hour of waiting on the bridge to Wellsley Island to get back in the states, customs was really backed up. Thought maybe it was something I did. LOL We really had a good time in Kingston. We met a great group of people and made lots of friends. We hope we can all stay in touch. Wayne & Gayle and Lynne & Dave you guys did a fantastic job with the rally, it was a blast.

Thanks, Patti and Jon

It took us 5 days to get to Kingston and 5 days to get home we visted at the rally for a day and a half, we came across 2 different head on MVA's, got shut out in Dryden Ontario, went into a camp ground that was supposed to be BIg Rig Friendly but wasn't ( biggest rig was 23 ft) We really hit a jack pot there. Wait I am getting to the best part, we will do it again. All those that missed the KIngston Rally....Too bad, it was really great. We met the best people. the food was wonderful, the people were unbelievable.(I never thought I would admit my mustakes to other seasoned RV'ers.

Wayne & Gayle and Lynne & Dave, you did a great job. I couldn't help but notice that you waited until we were set up before you came to welcome us......

I hope Dave had a chance to talk to Donna before they left lol

Looking forward to next year.

Don & Janina
