RE: Does your driver's license match your vehicle registration?

Do not confuse " domicile state " with " residence state" ! And what is the difference? This gets real tricky because there is no accepted legal definition all across the country. Barb The diff is significant and residence and domicile are well-defined in Black's Law Dictionary, and I'm unaware of different interpretations among the states. In one year, for example, you can reside in one state or many states, or overseas, but you generally have only one domicile, even though you might split your time at your residences (in your RV). Typically, your domicile is the place you call home, pay taxes, have your vehicle(s) titled and registered, library card, do jury duty, have professional contacts/licenses, etc. And that's what causes issues for us vagabonds, because we often inadvertently create ties where we're residing at the time. The caution here is that you want to ensure no state you reside in, even temporarily, tries to consider you a domicilary, especially for tax purposes. While any state having income tax has a claim on your wages earned in that state, working while at your temporary location, in and off itself, does not make you a domicilary of that state or pay other taxes, such as for personal property. As always, I make no claim my comments are accurate and are npt legal advice.

RE: 6 point leveling????

Told the DW I wouldn't buy another FW without auto level. I love it!

RE: Does your driver's license match your vehicle registration?

While gatorcq and wanderingnob have a rather cavalier attitude, if that works for them who am I to criticise them. It is, however, advisable to maintain as many ties to your true domicile as possible to minimize trouble, especially when it comes to tax collection.

RE: Anyone have a car topper boat or kayak when towing a 5er?

I used a Darby T-bar and a front mounted receiver to carry a 14' kayak. Used one roof rack on the back of the cab. Worked well.

RE: Genset Requirements

Why not buy the Honda 3000EI and your problems are solved. less gas to run than two 2000s. Looked but can't find an "EI." The problem, I think, is my Handi is really only rated for 2700 continuous watts which is not quite enough for continuous AC operation.

RE: Genset Requirements

I am guessing that you are using a 50 to amp adapter. Have you turned off 120 volt water heater? Does the rig have a power management system? Did you switch it to 30 amp? Yep, using a 50 to 30a adapter and there's no power management system, and nothing else was turned on. I might try again after turning off the inverter to isolate the fridge, but both would need to run while on the genset, anyway, so I'm thinking I just don't have enough oomph with the 3000w genset.

RE: Genset Requirements

Leave the fridge on batteries when running the ac and keep the same generator. I've turned everything off and tried just one AC. It will start but the genset goes into overload in about one minute.

Genset Requirements

I think I know the answer but I'm looking for confirmation. I have a Honda 3000i Handi genset that handled one 13,500 AC and a couple of other devices at the same time in a 30a service FW. Now have 50a service in the new FW and want to run one 15,000 AC, and a Samsung residential fridge. The 3000i won't carry the load even though the AC will start. I'm thinking of getting two Honda 2000s and running them in parallel. The fridge should be okay overnight on the batteries when the gensets are off. Anyone else doing that or have an opinion to share? Thank you

RE: direct tv problem this am

Fox HD is out in SWFL. It's obviously a conspiracy.

RE: Dry camping with furnace on

You need two or more typical 12v hybrid batts, or a couple of 6v golf cart batts to keep your furnace running longer than 8 hours.

RE: Onan Gen Removal

My Onan just dropped out the bottom. I used a floor jack under it, and had raised that side of the RV a bit.

RE: Windows 10 - Anniversary Edition?

The update changed my log in and I can't use my pin, and have to go thru a PITA process to change it back. Windows appears, by design, to make my life more difficult.

RE: Looking at 2 fifth wheels ?

I bought a 2014 Wildcat 327CK and traded it in one year later. My sense is that Jayco makes a better product, but having never owned one my opinion means nothing. We did look at them before buying the Montana

RE: Key West

Get off 95 as soon as you can in FL by taking the toll road to avoid Miami.

RE: Need 5th wheel hitch advice

I have a 6-1/2' bed and corner cutouts on the FW and I still need a slider. Pullrite and Demco both make good auto sliders, and the Demco Is height adjustable.

RE: Selling unneeded parts

If you have stuff like hitches, supplental braking and the like, hitchtrader.com provides a good market.

RE: So, we had our first flat, and second, yesterday

If you have space to go bigger, and your wheel width is adequate for the new that's what I recommend.

RE: Looking for Opinions on Keystone Montana for Full Timing

Well, Keystone states "4 season living," and ours is certainly better than any previous RV we've owned, but I seriously doubt deep-freeze winters would be very comfortable. Nothing in the Keystone literature says FT invalidates your warranty. It has no problem cooling in near 100 degree and high humidity conditions in FL. The front LR stays cool. Take a look at the lack of storage if you're considering FT. We knew up front but we pack fairly light and it hasn't been a problem although I don't consider us true full-timers. There are higher quality makes for FT, but you'll pay a high price for one.

RE: Video Hurricane Hermine: We "rode" out the storm...

Winds forecast over 50Mph = get out of the trailer and go to a safer location, or take the trailer to a safer location.
