RE: 14" SNOW

Put the truck in 4WD and worked back and forth opening a parking spot before making it out on the street. Went downtown Wall and about a dozen cars. I'm sure I-90 is back open as it's melting fast...I feel for those trying to travel last night. We are parked in a private camping spot about 2 blocks from Drug Store.

14" SNOW

We are at Wall, SD....dumped 14" at one measurement but some other areas look deeper. We don't carry snowshovels anymore.

RE: Wheelchair in an RV?

Almost all fifth wheel trailers have steps inside. Bathroom doors are usually 24-30"...As gfar as I know, unless you order a custom unit, a class A motorhome is all on one level. You can order a chair lift on some models also.

RE: Denver to Rapid City, SD

Take I-25 North to I-80...go East into Nebraska..exit 59 (hwy 385) That hwy runs right into Rapid City...no mountains...nice easy drive. Once you're in South Dakota it turns into Hwy 79...

RE: Custer City, SD KOA Campground

Stay away in August as over a million motorcycles will invade the area. Prices skyrocket everywhere, 100 mile radius.

RE: Tax Exempt States for Full Time RVing

We retired out of Missouri and went to South Dakota, turned in titles, drivers licenses and became SD residents...no state income tax, no personal property tax, no sales tax...big savings. Every state has Federal taxes but the rest is a big savings. You can own property in as many states as you want to, as long as you live in each one less than 180 days a year. Full time RV'rs who travel all over can use this and claim almost any state as a state of residence..Florida, Montana, Texas, South Dakota, etc. Many states have rules that prevent you from claiming as a resident...have to check the laws. All of our retirement income and other monies go through SD so they don't take out state taxes. We have to return to SD every 5 years to have picture taken for drivers license but voting ballots are mailed to us every voting session. We are excluded from jury duty as we are too far away to attend

RE: 50 amp to 30 amp

Many places sell a 50 to 30 amp reducer. All it means is that you can't run as many things with 30 amp as you can 50 amp...like air conditioners, microwave, toaster & hair dryer at the same time.

RE: A site that lists used toads ready to go for sale?

Snowbird areas like Florida, South Texas & Arizona have consignment dealerships who handle RV's & tow vehicles from death in family or health reasons who can't travel anymore. Do some Google searches.

RE: Newbies- black tank question

Water, Water, Water...you can't have too much water in your sewer system. Look how much water is used to flush when at home...use at least two bowls of water after use...when you open to drain the tank, the force of all that water trying to get out sucks most of the sewage out with it.

RE: RV Resorts vs Campgrounds

Usually, a campground is short term camping with little amenities. A safe place to park, relax and use for a home base to see the sights. A resort is usually for longer term stays like in Florida/Arizona/Texas...snowbird spots. They offer many amenities like wood working shop, lapidary, entertainment, tennis courts, bocce ball, pickleball, etc. They attract snowbirds to entertain and make them come back year after year. Most go by a monthly rate but will take a few week or less RV's.

RE: my toilet is backed up

Stuff happens...but almost always, people new to the RV world do not use enough water. Look how much water is used when you flush a toilet at home...by the time the tank is full, you should have 2/3 water and 1/3 "stuff"...the force of all that water trying to drain sucks out stuff and keeps if from getting hard. But the problem now is getting stuff out...usually a sewer service comes out and hooks on to your fitting and sucks out almost everything. Then when empty, add about 20 gallons of water so you have a small lake to let things pile up. When you flush always let lots of water gointo the toilet. Keep the paper useage down...no big wads of paper..use 1 ply paper so it will disolve easy. Live and learn

RE: I can't get my local channels on directtv

You have a service address & a mailing address....The mailing one does not change....but the service address is where you are parked. You have to change the service address and call DTV to get locals where you are parked...If you travel full time, it's $5 a month to get locals where you are parked...otherwise you can get east coast and west coast feeds for ABC, NBC, CBS, etc. If you are in Wichita, Ks and plug in the Ks zip code, you will get Witchita locals, not Denver...but when I was in Ouray, CO, I got Denver locals as it was the closest to where I was parked

RE: Help with a TV

I'm sure the fifth wheel will weigh 16,000 - 18,000 at minimum. The least you should go is a 1 ton, diesel dually. Everyone will be suprised if they take the trailer to a scale and actually weigh it will all your "stuff" onboard. Always better to have too much truck that too little. Especially once you go out west and hit the mountain grades

RE: directv question

If you go online and into your Directv account, there are two addresses..first is your billing address...second is your service address. Billing is where the bill goes to...service is where you're parked. Every time I move to a new location, I have to change my service addess. Then for an extra $5 a month, you can get the local channels where you are at..it will not pick up your home channels. You will get the major channels from the closest city..Been doing this for 9 years and works fine.

RE: Pinhole leaks in sewer hose - what to replace with?

Don't let your sewer hose lay on the ground...little sharp stones & pebbles will poke holes...either get a slinkey to lay it on or cut a section of PVC in half so your hose can lay in it to protect it

RE: Cooking and drinking water

The majority of public campgrounds have water that has been tested and complies with health standards...there are times where odor & taste is there but safe to drink...yes it is....add a whole house water filter so all water coming into your camper has an added filtration to cut down on odor/taste & sediment
