RE: Can't decide...first time TT

I haven't looked at the floorplans of the trailers you are looking at, but consider the fact that as your girls get older they will want more and more privacy. Will each have a space that is theirs? Do you or the girls have to walk past the other to go to bathroom in the middle of the night? For serious bathroom duties, does everyone else need to go outside for the person in the bathroom to have real privacy (sound travels)? One thing I did to mine, which has a mid-bath is hang an additional curtain in hallway to create another "door" between living area and bathroom. Even when I travel by myself, I like to close that "door" when showering. Then as I move from bathroom to bedroom and closet, I am not open to whole trailer. This means I have more room for dressing.. bathroom is too tiny to dress in after showering.

RE: Roaming RVers rally schedule for 2016

For the February 12-14 Rally at General Coffee, I need some help. okay, my job is interfering with my rving, I just wish I could retire already. I found out I have to travel to Pennsylvania the week before this rally. I need to get someone to take over as host.... or we can move back a week. I will not be returning until sometime on Friday. I have meetings Wednesday and Thursday, and the schedule is set by someone else. I will probably be driving to ATL airport with someone else, so even that time will be set by someone else. I am so frustrated!!!! The trip was set for this upcoming Monday, and finally on Wednesday they told me I needed to go, and then yesterday it was pushed back until the 9-12 February. When I asked about even moving it to Mon-Thurs, I was told we have to go when they say we can visit. ARRRGG!! anyhow, please give me your thoughts on someone else taking over or moving it back to next weekend. I also posted on rally thread itself, just wanted to put it where the most people could see it.

RE: Shingles,,, how many have gotten shingles after vaccination!

I talked to my doc, she wrote me a prescription for the Shingles vaccine, and I took it to Walgreens. I asked them to check and see if my insurance would pay for it, and mine paid the entire amount. So I immediately got the vaccine. I am under 60 and was concerned if insurance would pay. don't know if they pay for all under 60 or paid for mine because my doctor recommended. My dad had the Shingles and was in intense pain for weeks and went through lots of testing before he actually had any rash (and only minor rash at that), so I was terrified of getting the Shingles. On the mention of the pertussis vaccine, most ob-gyn's recommend to pregnant women that all who will be in close contact with new baby get the vaccine. When my granddaughter was born, I tried the get pertussis, but unfortunately it is only available with the tetanus, to which I am allergic. So I couldn't comply with the recommendation.

RE: Roaming RVers- Feb 12-14 2016 General Coffee State Park, GA

Okay everyone, if you haven't made your reservations... do so... I drove over last weekend and drove through the campground.. Loop 1 is closed because they are so empty... but I would recommend Loop 2 anyhow. Loop 2 is easier to navigate especially if you have a bigger rig. Most of the sites were fairly level and had gravel pads for parking. The soil is very sandy, so be prepared with a rug to keep from tracking it in. I have debated on theme's and finally decided on comfort food.. Since February is usually our coldest month, I thought warm and cozy would be what most of us had in mine. So be prepared with your favorite comfort food. I am not sure what I will do for Friday night. For Saturday morning, I will bring coffee (Pat, can I borrow your big pot? and biscuits and sausage gravy. For Saturday night, I will bring a big pot of chicken and dumplings. Looking forward to seeing you all.

RE: RE:Hey, where did you get that?

I have been asked and answered as OP said. My son says I spend too much time here. When I ask him about something on my TT, he tells me to go ask my "forum buddies".

RE: Georgia Veterans SP and SAM Shortline

The train ride is something the schools around here take as part of field trips fairly regularly. They can get up and move around some to see what is outside. choose one of the trips that stops for a while. The one that stops is Americus is just across the street from Habitat for Humanity's global village. Neat walk through of homes throughout the world... what people have and what Habitat does to provide better housing. Really will make you aware of how blessed we are. Stop in Plains is downtown, Jimmy Carters campaign headquarters and several stores are what is within walking distance (also a park). If the train goes all the way to Archer, you can see the Carter boyhood Farm. That would probably be more interesting to kids than campaign headquarters. There is the house, garden, barn and other outbuildings as most farms in the 30's had. My Dad wouldn't ever go out there, he said he lived it, except that they didn't have electricity as early. State park has plenty of places for kids to run. Some weekends they have remote control plane "fly-ins". Amazing to watch the things those planes can do. Some of the campsites are waterfront, others are water view. There is a third section in the woods across from the lake, but I usually try to stay nearer the lake. Not sure when you are coming, but park is usually VERY full during summer. Many people from nearby go to be at the lake all weekend. I have spent many weekend over there, so kids could be on lake all day, especially when they were younger. I live about 30 miles away so it's an easy trip, especially when I want to get away at the last minute. Take a babysitter, and check out who-ever is singing in the bar/club at the Lodge. They frequently have some pretty good local talent.

RE: How do you get a library card when your address is a PMB

Another thing to convince me my decision to keep my address in GA. Most of the libraries in GA are part of the PINES system. You can use any library statewide with your card. You can check out books, tapes, dvds, and return to any other library. Also have the ability to reserve books, renew books and download ebooks via the web.

RE: Oven pilot light

I don't light it until I decide to use oven, then I leave it on until I get ready to leave. Usually once I light it, I will then use the oven a few more times. It also depends on outside temp, I am more likely to light and use oven when it is cold (or at least cool) outside.

RE: Did I dodge a bullet?

Boxerslave, When my kids come to visit, I stay in trailer and let them have the house. Had a similar incident, except kids left water heater on when they left. Thank goodness, it wasn't cold enough that we had no water in it. I also discovered they didn't realize they needed to open vent and turn on fan to release extra moisture when they showered. So now, they get the house and I go out and have some privacy from all the visitors and sleep through the night even if the baby doesn't.

RE: Clever storage ideas needed

Utilize wall space too... I hung the knife rack above on cabinet wall at side of fridge. Some large command hooks to hang jackets, etc on in bedroom. I have some smaller command hooks to hang stuff in shower. also hung a mesh shoe bag in bath room (in previous trailer) on wall above toilet. stored hair and bath stuff. BTW, your new TT is the one I seriously considered for FTing later. Still debating it or MH.

RE: Title an RV into deed to claim a mortgage interest deduction

From IRS publlication 936 For you to take a home mortgage interest deduction, your debt must be secured by a qualified home. This means your main home or your second home. A home includes a house, condominium, cooperative, mobile home, house trailer, boat, or similar property that has sleeping, cooking, and toilet facilities. Second home. A second home is a home that you choose to treat as your second home. Second home not rented out. If you have a second home that you do not hold out for rent or resale to others at any time during the year, you can treat it as a qualified home. You do not have to use the home during the year. Second home rented out. If you have a second home and rent it out part of the year, you also must use it as a home during the year for it to be a qualified home. You must use this home more than 14 days or more than 10% of the number of days during the year that the home is rented at a fair rental, whichever is longer. If you do not use the home long enough, it is considered rental property and not a second home. For information on residential rental property, see Publication 527. IRS specifically mentions RV and Boat. Also 14 day requirement only applies if you rent it out. I just get an interest statement from bank and include that amount as Mortgage Interest that I do not receive a 1099 for... whichever line I don't know. I use H&R Block software... as it allows me to easily include some other deductions.

RE: Today on I-75 South of Atlanta

I think it is just the area.... back in the spring traffic was horrible in that area when I went through. FYI, if you can go I85 Southbound and go further west, traffic isn't nearly as bad

RE: For once my big mouth comes in handy... Awning

The best thing I did to my Carefree awning, was get rid of the spring and convert it to a crank type. Much easier for one person to work the large awning and it never gets away from me and rolls the pull strap up in itself. (I don't have the pull strap anymore). The install guy spent more time centering my awning and straightening out the slanted arm than he did making the actual conversion. And it was done onsite at a rally I was attending. Some of the best money I have spent on my TT.

RE: Need Feedback ASAP - Questions about Towing

Tires make a huge difference in how the vehicle rides... I shopped new tires for my F150 recently and although a much stiffer sidewall would have added to the tow experience, I decided since most of my driving is not towing, I would stick with the nice soft Michelin "P" truck tires. When I tow, I just add air to the rear tires and it helps with the squishy rear end feel that towing brings on with the soft tires. I didn't need to carry as many passengers, but was stuck with the F150 as my daily driver... actually only driver.. so it had to work for all the time. Talk to a real tire shop and see what they suggest to help with ride if whatever you buy has a less than comfortable daily ride. A couple of conversations with tire shop really helped me make my decision.

RE: Trailer Insurance?

I have GEICO for about $350 a year (before discounts), comprehensive, collision with $500 deductible, medical payments and personal property replacement. since it is covered with truck and another car.. I get multicar and rv plus car discounts, along with the other discounts for good driver and having safety equipment in vehicles. Also since it is on policy with truck, uninsured motorist will cover whenever I am towing. Discounts take my total bill from $3200 to $2400 a year... oh yeah, I have an under 25 year old male as primary driver of one vehicle,

RE: 9500lb vs 7600 lb trailer

Be sure you look at the actual weights on the yellow sticker on the Trailer... In looking before I found some that were much higher than the published dry weight on the website. If you have a low published CCC, you may have almost none based on the true weight. With kids, you will need the CCC to carry all their stuff. I would get the one with the higher GVWR, to give you the CCC you may need. You don't have to load that heavy, but it is nice to have the capacity if you need it.

RE: Advice reference Jayco SLX 212QBW

I have to agree with Mike up.... I have a Jay flight and when I have looked at the SLX or Swift, they just come up lacking. I really think you would soon wish you had the extras of the regular JayFlight and wish you had made a different choice, as the costs appear so close.
