RE: do you leave your awnings out?

The OP is from Texas. We have been fulltime for 4 1/2 years and the only state we didn't leave the awning out was the 6 months we were in Texas. Sure we've rolled it up a few times when high winds were forecast but we found in Texas we spent more time than it was worth and just left it rolled up.

RE: Mail Forwarding and Home Base

We use http://mydakotaaddress.com/ in Madison, SD. We use that as well. I won't say one state (SD,FL,TX)is better than another each person has different needs which anyone of those states may or may not address. We have family up north though not in SD so we travel near enough and often enough that location is no problem when licence renew rolls around. It may just be my Midwest mentality that selected SD over the other fulltimer friendly states.

RE: Snowbirds - Work Camping Couple Needed in Florida asap-Apr

Some would do it for the enjoyment, not everyone figures their time in $'s.

RE: Workcamping experience ?

Camp hosting ain't rocket science. Depending on the state in which you host it could be cleaning campsites after use, cleaning shower house daily or twice a day, maintenance mowing lawns, repairing broke things, painting,etc. We did a forest service OHV site 16 hrs a week. Our job was to do hourly vehicle counts on Sat & Sunday and pickup litter and clean a pit toilet on Monday morning. We usually did it Sunday evening after the riders left. If we had heavy rains and the trails were muddy we locked the gate if it was Sat & Sunday it still counted as days worked. It did get loud on the weekends.

RE: RVs and the migrant elderly workers of our times

It will only get worse. Stagnant wages, low interest income, rising costs due to dollar dilution/printing. Are we supposed to be talking about this? Economics, sure why not.

RE: So where will you be???

Is this a holiday week end coming up? Being retired I forget those things. Guess we'll just stay where we are in the NJ Skylands.

RE: Difference btw F250/350 and F450/550

I don't keep up with all the different possible combos but the 450 and 550's had different frames and had I believe at least 430 or 488 rear ends The 350's had 373 and the Tow Boss model 411 or 430 all which would allow for higher payloads but lower MPG's.

RE: Dish Tailgater

I run my wire through the slide there's enough play in the seals that it doesn't crimp the wire.

RE: Humidity

Use your shower vent fan while showering dry shower with towel afterward. Use range hood vent when cooking. We have a ceiling fan that has been running for 4 1/2 years as we fulltime. Only time it doesn't run is when we're on the road or it needs a cleaning.

RE: Any word

We had our offer/tentative hiring back in June, recently received email, to where are we now, for drug screening at nearest diagnostic center. We were told that might take awhile as those starting sooner will be first as they are now in need of workers.

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.
