RE: Parking Marks on Driveway

My mother is 87 and has a 4 X 4 in her garage where she parks. I moved it up about 6" one day to see if she would hit the wall. The next time I saw her she said she knew I had been there because the 4 X 4 was moved and she can still see. Ummmmm....you moved it so she would HIT THE WALL...:h:h. She should have whacked you up the side of the head.....just saying....:B...Dennis

RE: Full time soon / advice needed

First things first, Kemo Sabe. Do you want to keep Florida as you domicile state? If yes, then all you'll need is a mail forwarding service. Since you'll be full timing, you can pick and choose your domicile State. We chose South Dakota because of their sales tax, 4% and no State income tax. Choose your domicile state wisely depending on your personal situation. Be sure to consider Medicare/Medical benefits as well. Also take into consideration insurance. You'll need full timers insurance which basically is your auto insurance and homeowner's insurance rolled into one. Considerably more expensive than just auto insurance. Once you've chosen a domicile state, select a mail forwarding service in that state and transfer all your 'stuff' to that address. i.e. bank statements, voter registration, auto registration, driver's licenses etc. I used the IRS guidelines which is what most states use to determine if you're "intent" is to make a certain state your domicile state. This avoids any confusion or misunderstandings if the tax man knocks on your door. You DO NOT have to own property in your domicile state but you CAN own property in other states.....Dennis

RE: california smog requirements?

Any vehicle, diesel or gasoline, brought into California and registered for the first time are required to pass the California smog requirements. Every two years thereafter. So, yes, a valid smog certificate will be required. Of course that's making some assumptions as there are exemptions. Is the RV 1997 or newer? If yes, it's required. Is the GVWR 14,500 or less? If so, it's required.....Dennis

RE: Class A Tire Blow and Roll-over

No one knows how one would react to a motorhome blowout until you've been through it. Thankfully, very few experience it. I simply pulled to the shoulder and called Coach Net. Then proceeded to use rubbing compound and wax to remove the rubber scuffs off the side of the rig while waiting for the tow truck.....:B:B....Dennis

RE: Rear AC not working

If the capacitor was bad, it would NOT cause the breaker to trip. The fact that it trips the breaker points to a locked up compressor OR the 3 wires attached to the Compressor have melted and shorted. Check those wire connections. If GOOD, replace the unit. If melted/corroded, fix the wiring and retest. Doug What Doug said..unless, or course, you messed up putting the wires back on the correct terminals.....Dennis

RE: Class A Tire Blow and Roll-over

I still think it's a case of driving too fast. And over reacting. He was in left lane passing and going too fast. Had he been driving the speed limit a coach towing should have been in the right lane, it wouldn't have flipped over when he tried to go around around what ever was laying in the road. Over reacted at high speeds. Just saying. We will never know what really happened from just the video though. And how can you tell he was speeding or going too fast! You would have to know how fast the truck was going and that wasn't given. I have been certified as a police speed radar Operator in Florida since 1989. Part of that is being able to estimate speed of moving traffic within 3 MPH. From the cab of a truck though it is unlikely that anyone can accurately estimate either vehicles speed without knowing at least one of them. Give the driver a break! I usually drive at 62 regardless of the speed limit (you know what I mean) and I even pass a truck every now and then. IIRC the trucker stated he was traveling over 65mph when the moho passed him. One could measure the white stripes, count the number of stripes he passed and mathematically determine his speed using a stop watch. He was going too fast while towing. Also if you watch the video, you'll see an alligator fly up just as he leaves the highway....Dennis

RE: Mail when full timing

We use Americas Mailbox in Box Elder, which we made our domicile state. They will do everything except renew your driver's license which you must do. No State Income tax and 4% sales tax. They have several options relative to what mail gets forwarded to you...you make the choice depending on which plan you choose. We've been satisfied customers for eight years. As with any mail forwarding service, you get charged for the amount of mail sent out...the bigger the package the more they charge in postal fees. We go paperless whenever possible including most magazines..Elks, FMCA, Thousand Trails etc. That said, as a full timer you also need to look at the other end of the chain. Many campgrounds will no longer accept USPS mail and/or they charge a fee for doing so. We go on line to the USPS site and have our mail forwarded to us in our name, C/O General Delivery. Not every post office accepts GD so you have to check to make sure the one nearest you will do so....best of luck...Dennis

RE: Towing Equinox 4 down

On our second year with the Equinox LTZ. No problems. Like Ron, I added a switch in place of pulling the fuse. A $10 mod. Easy to tow..We bought the LTZ model as the LS does not offer the V6. The LTZ also comes with heated leather seats and the sunroof.....Dennis

RE: DP going up and down mountains

A little late to this party but since I had the same coach as the OP, I'll weigh in here. To the OP, you're overthinking this trip. Easy to do and worthwhile but, there are no grades you'll need to do any shifting up or down for. Your exhaust brake, assuming it's original is woefully inadequate. If you are keeping the coach, I would suggest you upgrade to the PRXB brake. You'll rarely have to downshift using that EB. Excellent upgrade for your coach. For your route, simply leave the keypad in D and go. Use the foot pedal to activate the exhaust brake when starting downhill and tap your brakes if you pick up too much speed. I've traveled all over the Rockies with my Dynasty and never once downshifted. Those are much steeper and longer than anything you'll encounter on your trip south. Enjoy the trip and be safe. P.S. Ignore all the posts that rag on you cuz you're asking questions. Keep asking away...everyone learns that way....Dennis

Changing light bulbs - Must read

Question of the day...How many forum posters does it take to change a light bulb in your RV...:h. 1 to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed 14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been hanged differently 7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs 7 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs 5 to flame the spell checkers 3 to correct spelling/grammar flames 6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ... another 6 to condemn those 6 as anal-retentive 2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is "lamp" 15 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that "light bulb" is perfectly correct 19 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb forum 11 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this forum 36 to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior, where to buy the best light bulbs, what brand of light bulbs work best for this technique and what brands are faulty 7 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs 4 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL's 3 to post about links they found from the URL's that are relevant to this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group 13 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, and add "Me too" 5 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the light bulb controversy 4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?" 13 to say "do a Google search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs" 1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again. 1 moderator that says it's posted in the wrong forum and moves it to the hardware forum Edit: 2, so far, to explain the benefits of LED bulbs...:B...D

RE: CAT Scale Question

I know you can do individual tires(all 4 corners), No you can't. You will get axle weights listed as steer, drive, and trailer. With a motorhome, you drive until the front axle is on the first scale and the rear is on the second. DownTheAvenue; YES you can get 4 corner weights if you use the procedure I described above because I've done it before. Like most everything...it depends...the CAT scales at Pilot/FlyingJ stations are elevated making it impossible to four corner weigh. Only if the scale is ground level can you follow that procedure. Also, that procedure is iffy at best as any deviation in ground level will skew the results......Dennis

RE: tire and wheel extended warranties

I had a blowout in South Carolina a couple years ago due to running over debris in the roadway. My insurance covered the tire, emergency response and everything associated with it. All with no deductible. I say keep it..One tire will pay for it....Dennis
