RE: Anyone replace their tank sensors?

Been doing this FT traveling for now in our 14th year. 2 rigs. Gray/black sensors have NEVER worked properly (and your new ones won't either). We've never worried about it. It only takes a few trips to know when you've reached your capacities. Fresh water sensors have never failed. Obvious reasons.

RE: How many have a ....

I prefer to stay private but don't our license plates tell enough at least what state we are from.. Kinda' sorta'. We are fulltimers for many years. Our LP's might tell you where we are registered but give you NO information about where we are at this moment. And frankly, even our address of record won't tell you anything about who we are or our whereabouts. Darned if we don't like it that way!

RE: Slammers

My wife is a slammer. For 35 years I have done every thing short of assault to get her to not do it. b Perhaps it's time to go the assault route!

RE: How many have a ....

Okie-Dokie. Call me a bit paranoid. Go ahead, go there and call me a LOT paranoid.. Won't ever reveal our real names or other significant information to anyone we don't know. This is the way we roll. Hope your travels are as safe as have been ours for the last 14 years.

RE: Slammers

we couldn't imagine what they were doing to make so much noise. Oh, you can imagine it, you just don't want to! LOL

RE: Slide out that goes 6 feet out. Great idea!!!!

There is no such animal as a 6' side slide. A REAR slide, yep. Jayco and a couple of other companies such as KZ have been making them for years.

RE: Getting expensive

My dad used to tell me: you can have anything that you want, you just can't have it all. Cheers!! :D Your father was a very wise man. Hope you listened.

RE: Slammers

I just wonder what tenters are slamming in particular:h. It's the dang sleeping bags and mosquito netting banging and rustling all hours of the night. Can't hardly hear if my generator is still running... Now THAT'S funny :) Likely wouldn't be when the genny failed 1/2 hour later, but I couldn't possibly tell you how that might happen!

Apparently it was a REALLY slow news day in MN. :)

Wow...what's next, a rant about loud tent zippers. Hey, you read it and even commented! What's next?

RE: Slammers

We were camping in British Columbia once in an old van with a sliding door that HAD to be slammed to close. And I'd be willing to bet that you had that old engine idling the whole time you were trying to close that door quietly. :)

Slammers

We've been at this fulltiming thing now in our 14th year. Given that we've been in close proximity, even boondocking, close to someone for at least half of that time, what's up with the slamming? Slamming RV doors. Slamming car/truck doors. Slamming outside cabinet doors. Slamming Motorcycle compartments (yep 20+ times in the last 3 days). I don't get it. ALL of those entities can be closed quietly without disturbing anyone. I can close the door to my F-250 without making a discernible noise 2' away. Do you all just want attention or do you just not get that this could conceivably bother other people? Please think and stop it!

RE: Signs, signs, everywhere there's signs.....

Even with all those signs, people still speed and then have the audacity to complain that they got a ticket for speeding... With you all the way. IS/was Waldo a speed trap? Yep. When other areas post speed limits should they be observed? Ya' think?` If you hadn't payed attention to the signs or didn't care to, did you deserve a citation? Well, YES!

RE: Signs, signs, everywhere there's signs.....

We're currently in NC. Not sure if it's a statewide phenomenon, but it's at least across 3 counties. EVERY bridge, even those over a tiny dry wash (and there are a lot of them)is named and signed, such as, "Emmett P. Whatshisface Bridge". Who knows what those signs cost and where the funds come from. I'd bet on at least a couple hundred each to produce and place.

RE: Getting expensive

They are absurdly priced but those RV resorts are in the areas I wish to travel. Sure I could go somewhere else, but I wouldn't be where I want to be. . And therein lies a critical difference. No harm, no foul. Enjoy the rest of your time on the planet.

RE: Getting expensive

Depends on location. In the areas of CA I enjoy visiting a nice RV park can easily be $80-$100 or more. I'm seriously interested in what you define as "nice" and can justify that rate. Not in any way condemning your choices, just really want to know.

RE: Getting expensive

SO MANY PLACES NOW WON'T EVEN LET YOU BOONDOCK Been at this for MANY years. We don't do it often but we do do it. We can "boondock" within 10 minutes of wherever we choose. Really. We are 45' nose to tail connected truck to 5'er. Just for starters, try churches, obviously not on Saturday night or Sunday morning. You will have a peaceful night and we have never been bothered. Of course there are always the standbys like Walmart, Lowes, etc. Those can be very bright and noisy. We have pulled over well off of a country road and spent a lovely night. Point is, there are MANY opportunities out there. Utilize them or be afraid, be very afraid! :)

RE: Getting expensive

I was at Walgreens this morning. A package of 2 Tweenkies is $1.79 Yes Willie, I've looked at your posts for years. Was a private pilot for a very long time and am a bit envious of your years as an AP but never regretted not going there. Flew where I wanted and with whom I wanted. OK, didn't make the $$ you did. BUT, if you amortize the cost of your "coach" over the times you've spent in it on the road over the past 11 years including site fees, fuel, insurance etc, I'm willing to bet that you've outspent me big time. And we've done this 24/7/365 X 13.3 years. Not accusing you of anything. Just saying that there are far less expensive ways of doing this. Hopefully the OP has gotten some insight. And BTW Willie, I understand that you are Hispanic, but Twinkies are still not "Tweenkies" LOL

RE: Getting expensive

Homework is required. We've been traveling fulltimers now in our 14th year. Was it cheaper 14 years ago? Yeah, but not by that much. And have the opportunities expanded? Yep. I reached geezerhood in mid 2013. Since then COE parks have been our go-to. Some of the most gorgeous places in the country and for an average of between $10-12/night for a widely spaced site. Pool? No. Hot tub? No. WiFi? No, but available down the road. Activities? Well, for us, a 5 mile hike/day is ample, but no on the silly (to us) orchestrated stuff. Bingo? Seriously? And to add to that, we are currently in a 22 site park in the NC hills at 2,000 ft. with our nearest neighbor 500' away. The leaves are turning and falling, it is so quiet that you can hear that ubiquitous pin drop and because we like it so much we signed on for a month. Ready for it? With NO discounts we are paying $265 + electric (for us about $25) for the month. That includes water, sewer, good cable TV with about 40 channels, very good WiFi, and some of the nicest owners we've encountered. If my math is correct, that works out to less than $9.70/night. Yes, a remote find, but there are a lot of these jewels out here if you spend the time looking for them. And no, ain't no way I'm telling you where we are!

RE: In Motion Satillite System for Motor Home

if grandkids are traveling with us, keeps them occupied. That is truly sad. :(
