RE: Where do you stay between sites?

If you can't extend your stay or check in early cheek to see if there is a CG along the way. We often stay at wally world, travel centers, or rest areas along the way.

RE: 50amp Surge Guard Needed or Not

Like most safety equipment, you only need it if you need it. I would much rather have it and not need it than to need it and not have it. Before going fulltime I made a list of things that I thought were essential to have. A surge protector was on that list.

I place a level on the center island in the fifth wheel.

RE: Nightly stops enroute to Apache Junction AZ

I have an app for my smart phone, Allstays Camp and RV. There is a one time charge for it but it is not much. It shows cg,sp, Wal-Mart's and service centers. As a side note my wife and I are also going to Apache Junction. We will be at Superstition Sunrise, arriving around 1 Dec.

RE: State of residence for full timers

Since becoming a fulltimer and changing my state residency to FL, I have not had any problems with residency issues. I use the address issued trough MYRVMAIL.COM mail forwarding service. It met the requirements for; voting, drivers license, and CCW permit. PS I do not think I am doing anything illegal.

Wholesale Warranties

My extended warranty (GS Gold) will be expiring in a couple of months and I was surprised at the cost ($861.00) to renew it for only one year. I would like to hear from anyone that has experience with Wholesale Warranties or any other reliable companies. Thanks, Jim

RE: How much are you driving your Toad?

Until my wife and I headed out west last March we had a cr-v as a daily driver. We have a 5th wheel that I pull with a dodge dually. We sold it so she could ride in the truck and not have to follow across country. From April to the end of Sept we hosted at campground near Madras Oregon. During that time the dually became our daily driver. We used it for going on day trips and sightseeing when we were off. Both of us think we will be replacing the C-RV once we get to our wintering location in Apache Junction, AZ. The smaller car makes the daily driving and day trips easier. Especially, when driving in more congested towns and large cities. I also miss having Judy driving behind me as we travel because she could block lanes whenever I had to shift lanes. It is also cheaper to operate the C-RV. We are getting another C-RV because it can be towed "wheels down" in case we decide to get a MH at some point. Jim

RE: Park to park

This is our third year staying at a snowbird park. Two winters in Florida and we are enroute to a snowbird park in Appache Junction AZ. We like to stay at a park for the duration of our stay, usually 4-5 months. The longer stays gives you enough time to develop friendships and enjoy the area. We stayed at a great park in Florida (Adelaide Shores RV Resort)and we are sure we will like the park this year in AZ.

RE: 66 too old to full time

Full-timing should not be determined on the basis of age but more a function health. As long as we are healthy enough to drive and set up safely we will stay on the road.

RE: frostproof fla

My wife and I stayed at Adelaide S h ores RV Resort in Avon Park. Great park, close to shopping and restaurants. We did go to Frostproof to have an ice cream ever now and then. If you check-out my blog you can do a search for Adelaide Shores RV Resort. Jim

RE: sierra Del Saguaro RV Resort

The location of the park is Appache Junction, AZ. (Texan, thanks for reminding me that everyone may not be familiar with that park.) If you have other recommendations for that general area, please pass them along. Thanks, Jim -USNRET

diesel fuel question

I am concerned about the diesel fuel I put into my 3500 Ram. It seems like more and more fuel providers like Flying J, pilot,WalMart,and Loves are selling the biofuels. SO far I just find another source like BP, Shell and the like. The Cummins manual recommends no bio fuels greater than 5%. Should I be concerned, what do you do.

RE: Having a hard time with full timing

We have been true full-timers since last June but had been extended RVers since March of 2012. During that time we were gate attendants at Blanton Creek Park (GA) while we waited for the house to sell. During the last two winter season we stayed at Adelaide Shores RV Resort in Avon Park,FL. We had tons of fun and met many wonderful people. There were lots of activities and we were around like minded people. Some were extended RVers and many were full-timers like us. We are now headed to Madras, Oregon to host at Pelton Park CG. Once we finished our gig at Blanton Creek last Labor Day we traveled north to VA and meandered south arriving at our snowbird park just after Thanksgiving. As we traveled south we stayed between one and two weeks at each of the stops in between. Judy liked staying two weeks when possible. Judy has told me many times how much she is enjoying life now. One day we will settle back down but for now we like the highway. Take a look at our blog and the links included therein and you may find something to help with the transition. Hope this helps. We will be wintering in AZ next winter. Maybe we will see y'all there.
