You get what you pay for.

RE: Motorhome hit in storage lot

... (by the way police are citizens, only military are not citizens)... Not sure where you got this info. I don't recall having to renounce my citizenship during 20 years in the Air Force.

RE: Considering RV hauling; need some advice

... Of course you have the option of sleeping inside the trailer being pulled. ... Roy Ken From previous posts in these and other forums, utilizing the trailer is a definite no-no. As a commercial carrier falling under DOT regulations, I'm not sure sleeping in the back seat of the P/U would be an option for the required rest periods.

RE: Waiting for authorization for repairs

:h Is this a follow-up from a previous post with problems?

RE: Age Restricted Communities

Not sure about other states but here in FL, a certain small percentage of the total community size can be under 55. Check with the owner of the place you're interested in to see if they've hit their quota yet.

RE: computer slowdown

First of all, I concur with the other folks suggesting you do the 8.1 upgrade. Now, about your internet problem, have you tried disabling add-ons in your browser? Sometimes they get installed without you being really aware of it and they can certainly slow things down while browsing.

RE: How long before you're considered a resident of a state?

Yep, you'll have to pay state income taxes wherever you work. Every state I've had to file for had options for part-time or non-residents. Be careful about the states you work in. Some may want to tax you on all your income, or at least with a formula based on all your income. As far as being considered a resident, vehicle registration, etc, I believe that is determined based on intent. If you're working for a temp agency, your intent is not to stay there permanently. Your house has wheels. You have a permanent address in another state and/or a domicile letter.

RE: Balance wheels on a fifth wheel

Take them to a decent tire store and have them balanced. X2

RE: Tire Temps

Was the sun on the right side of your rig? I routinely get higher temps on the sunny side when traveling.

RE: Good Grief

Whenever you dump the black tank, be sure to also flush the tank. If not, you'll have continuous problems with buildup in the tank.

RE: Kitty and camping.

I use one of the covered dome litter boxes. It sits between the couch and the dinette (neither of which I use).

RE: GS ESP looks for loopholes and doesn't pay

I had the contract for almost a year now and my RV service center called for approval of a dip stick tube for the generator and was told since it had "some rubber" in it it wasn't covered, 90% of it was steel. This was going to be less than a $500 amount after my deductible. My only claim and denied, looks like that was a waste of $3K for the year. Now they want me to renew, they must be kidding. And 1 week after your policy expires, you'll have a problem with a covered repair. ESPs, written by anybody, are kind of like gambling. Since I've never had much luck gambling, I choose not to purchase an ESP.

RE: Income Tax for Full Timers

You should probably look into commercial mail forwarding services. The IRS may send mail to your PO box but other folks will require a legal address. Think driver's license, registration, bank, insurance, voting.

RE: Need help and advice with mail services

I used St. Brendan's Isle for a number of years, never had any problems, will certainly use them again in the future.

RE: Kayaks - Does size really matter?

Find a canoe/kayak outfitter near you. Call them and ask if/when/where they have a demo day. Spend the day there trying out many different boats. Too many of those cheap purchases wind up collecting dust cuz they're just not right/comfortable for the owner. You can get decent kayaks from an outfitter for way less than 3k.

RE: Installing updates Win 7

In the most recent batch of updates, my laptop hung on one of the security updates. I manually stopped the update and rebooted before continuing the process. It finished on the second try. I also read of somebody else on another forum who had to do the same thing.

RE: Anyone ever used GS insurance through National General?

Wouldn't it work the same as a car? If insurance totals it, they pay you book value for the TT. You do what you want with it (fix it, scrap it, etc) but if you decide to fix it, you'll make up the difference out of pocket. You might also have a salvage title at that point.

RE: Internet Explorer problems!

You could also try disabling all IE add-ons. If that fixes the problem, then re-enable each add-on individually and test until you find the one that was causing the problem.

RE: Looking for new local email client

I had that problem myself. I ended up deleting the .MSF files, which worked, and TB rebuilt these (MSF means message summary files, or indexes/caches.) This cured my issues. There is a utility called ThunderFix that does the same thing. Another alternative is a utility called SeaMonkey, which is an all-in-one E-mail program, NNTP reader, HTML editor, and Web browser. It isn't as full featured as TB, but it is an alternative. Finally, there is always Outlook. I am with you -- I far prefer a local E-mail client over Web stuff because I don't have to flip between all my E-mail providers and deal with their web pages. Personally, I use Thunderbird as my "read-'em-all" client that hits all my E-mail accounts via IMAP. However, for my formal home/business address, I also have Outlook, so I can send out proper S/MIME signed messages and have better Exchange integration. Plus, Thunderbird stores E-mail in a fairly sane format that is readable by almost any mail agent, which is great for long term storage. Thanks for the tip on ThunderFix. I'm trying that to see if it resolves the problem.
