RE: Keeping a stationary 5th wheel movable

Probably it would be good to check with someone local, but in some places, if you take it off the wheels, it becomes a residence and is subject to different taxes. Usually a lot higher. But might be a good idea to find out first.

RE: toilet

Sounds like the sales person has never been in an RV, or used an RV toilet, and assumes you are as much in the dark as she is. I would shop somewhere else. However, if you do shop there, be prepared for anything. RV toilets can be used dry if necessary, but do need to be flushed well with water before leaving it dry. Ours is dry when travelling, to keep water from splashing out, but otherwise always has some amount of water in the bowl.

RE: cold TV's?

Always leave our in, but usually warm up the RV before turning them on.

RE: Medicare coverage while travelling

We are in Tennessee, and our policy has a "Point of service" option which costs us a bit more than the regular policy. Covers at any facility that accepts Medicare. Available insurance policies varies by state, and many times, different areas in the state. Also, check on any time limits on how long you can be out of your coverage area. Some policies have some limits there also.

RE: What To Do With the Sticks & Bricks

Check with your insurance Company, but you should be OK with someone coming by occasionally the to check on it. There are a few places that being absent for over six months or so brings up a question of abandoment, and some insurance requires that the residence be occupied. In our rural neighborhood, all our neighbors usually know that we are travelling, and we usually tell the local law enforcement that we will be gone, as well as if we have anyone coming by.

RE: Playing guitars with new people while camping?

I can see where a small electric keyboard would be good sometimes, and an occasional accordian can be tolerated by most. But no bagpipes, please!

RE: Playing guitars with new people while camping?

and a euphonium seems a bit big to carry around in a camper anyway. But one played gently, with skill, can be a great solo instrument. A bit hard to sing along with though, especially for the player. Might be a bit much for a campfire anyway. A nice muted solo cornet, or a flute can be beautiful. A harp is a bit big also, whereas an autoharp is ideal. There was a reason that the smaller stringed instruments were so popular with traveling performers.

RE: Playing guitars with new people while camping?

I think its great, but like others said, there is too much of "too loud, and too late" Personally, I could sit and listen to a good acoustic and a good singer all night. Might even add in a bit of background myself. If its good music, and not just a lot of noise like most of the music you hear nowadays.

RE: Social Security question/help

When I retired at 63 after a job layoff, I talked to several people including a very nice person at the SS office. At that time, I was told that if I started collecting early, the break even would be in 8 years. As I am a Diabetic heart patient, I decided to take all I could get, as soon as I could get it, because if the worst happened, I, and my family would get none of what we ahd paid for many years. Now, we don't get as much as if we had waited, but we have lived on what we get for a number of years already.

RE: Social Security question/help

Tells you a lot about how much the government cares about your service, both in the military, and as an LEO. Although we can't do much to help, we just want to let you know that WE appreciate your service!

RE: Poor Gretchen got lanced today

Been there, done that. Had them open at home, and have opened a few at home, horrible mess, but with antibiotics they heal fast. Usually do not come back in the same place, but it has happened.

RE: 23 Months and no license plates or title!

It's apparent why they are no longer with the company. But that is CW.

RE: Your First Class A

RK911, when we got our first 30' class A, I had never driven one either, nor did we have any rv experience. We did have a great dealer that walked us through EVERYTHING about the unit, and took us out on a narrow two-lane road to convince himself and us that we could drive it. And we love it!! I have realized that most of the local school buses are bigger than I am, and they take them in places I would never consider myself. Just stay out of their way, and the same applies to local truck drivers. If they can get there, so can I. But I don't like (and avoid) high city flyovers with low side rails. Its amazing (and scary) what you can see from the high drivers seat.

RE: Your First Class A

I prefer gassers, because my home town mechanic can do about anything that needs to be done to it. After all, it is just a (in my case) a Ford truck, and any good farm equipment mechanic can work on it. Any my local shop even has a 14' door and bay that he can get it inside with no trouble. Under 50K is probably going to be a bit difficult, except for the lower-end units. look for under 5 years, and 30-40K miles. Your area is a good place to look around. Allegro is up in Red Bay, and most of their units are well-rated.

Another freezing water line question

Although we have been RVing many years, we have always been in a low range class A. With all the questions that show up on here, I would like to know if in TTs and 5ivers, are the water lines inside the living space of the coach itself?? Ours all have been, except for the water pumps, drains, and tanks that are in the bins under the floor. In our case, our heater has a vent into the wet bins, but unless we are using the main heater it doesn't get much heat. So we always use light bulbs in the bins which has worked well so far. My question is whether trailers and 5ivers are plumbed the same way??

RE: Cold nights in Branson

In the two MHs we have had, most of the plumbing was inside the heated area above the floor. So, if we didn't freeze, neither would the pipes. We do leave a couple of cabinets open so they stay at room temperature.
