RE: Near retirement - health insurance

Just wondering how you manage health insurance while traveling nationally if not subsidized by Medicare, Medicaid or a retirement system (such as government employee, teacher, military etc). Some people have big bucks.

RE: Anchoring a Residential Fridge

Helped a fellow volunteer replace his last winter. He secured the residential with strap metal secured to fridge with existing screws and then wood screws to the floor through the existing air vent, one on each side then a block in the front of wheels in front. His was a tight fit top to bottom so rolling in or out was the only concern.

RE: Additives for Grey Water Holding Tank

As fulltimers we are often sitting for months at a time with the grey valve open. Even with wiping dishes and pans out before washing some food particles will wind up settling in the grey tank shower water not withstanding. The last thing I do before packing up to move is close the grey valve and run hot water till it's cool. Then drive 200-300 miles on our lovely roads and stop for the night, hookup the sewer hose and open the grey valve. If you have one of those clear elbows you'll be surprised at what comes out.

RE: Ram 3500 vs 3500 dully four wheel.

I tow with a 4WD SRW and have never felt uncomfortable with my load. Trailer is about 13500 loaded weight. That said, I have never towed with a dually and I have heard over and over that once you do you will not go back. The problem that I had is that I use mine as a daily driver and I could not get a dually through my garage door for the winter. It's important in Minnesota in the winter. The mirrors stick out farther than the hips of my DRW do you have to fold your mirrors in to get through your garage door?

RE: Be aware of driver license requirements in California

Purely meant as a rhetorical statement. It would make for less confusion, with triple towing, length restrictions. etc... How come we can not just have a US Driving License. Come to a common driving system and be done with it.... Because we have fifty states that have legislatures that make their own rules. I for one does not think more federal intrusion into our lives is necessary or desirable.

RE: About 99% sure it will work.

We always budget $1.00 per mile while traveling that includes fuel, CG fees and we do use all available discounts GS's, Escapees, Golden PP, sightseeing, and we tend to eat out more while on the road. However the 3-6 months we sit volunteering between our travels more than covers it.

RE: Have you quit without notice?

Some people have a work ethic some don't. Some people consider their word is bond, others have no integrity.

RE: Gas/electric water heater

We only use gas when dry camping which is rare 4+ years fulltime and could count the number of times on one hand.

RE: Correct tire pressure on 5th wheel?

What does it say on the tires? I had new G614's put on last fall and the installer only aired them up to 85psi not the 110psi called for by the placard. Which I soon remedied.

RE: your opinion on appliance age

Ours is a 2004, fridge cooling unit died at age 8, Microwave was replaced under warranty way back when, converter when poof at age 7. AC still runs cold, water heater runs both electric and gas. TV was replaced with flat screen for weight savings and remodeling project.

RE: Ford vs Ram vs Chevy diesels

When we brought ours TV I wanted the Ram-cheapest DW didn't like the interior DW liked the Chevy but at E-O-Y clearance they only had "Black" and I'm too lazy to keep one clean so we got the Ford, "Polar White".

RE: Why only one bed in a fifth wheel and why sooo tall?

A good 5th wheel, six for cocktails, four for dinner, sleeps two.

RE: Black Tank Flush

We're hooked up for months at a time volunteering, when I dump the BT and run the tank sprayer I go to the potty room and fill the commode a couple times and flush figure a little extra push on whatever has been loosened by the sprayer will move it along.

RE: Using a Ceramic Heater

If you have slide outs snake the cord out around the seals that's what I do with my Sat wire.

RE: Separating Fresh Water From Pump Toilet

We've been drinking campground water for the last four years in 26 states and I don't know how many different campgrounds. The only place we drank bottled water was the one with a new water filtration system, DW thought the water was over softened and salty tasting and made lousy coffee. OP, put in a check valve.
