RE: To buy a dash camera or not

I use my cell phone in a window mount. It works pretty well. As for the debate about removing the SD etc if you are at fault: How about we accept responsibility for our mistakes? That's what we have insurance for after all. I know I probably sound too preachy and lawyers add a whole other layer but really, accept responsibility if it turns out it was your fault. That being said, I don't know how they would prove you were using your cell phone as a camera and not a GPS or anything else at that. I agree. As a former insurance claim adjuster, I would have loved to have had a video camera in some claims to determine fault. If my insured was at fault, I wanted to pay for the claimants damages and if my insured was not at fault, I would have loved to have had proof. Too many times it's he said, she said and each pays for their own when one party was actually at fault. If you screw up, take responsibility. We have a camera on order. It cost about $60. It's a DVR 207. It had good reviews. It should arrive today. It is small and we'll use it between our MH and the toad.

RE: florida keys in April

April is a great time to go. Not as hot as June. The winds have died down from March (for the most part) and it's nice and warm. Most of the snowbirds have headed north. We stay at Sunshine Key and that's when they allow the Cuban population to move back in and build their compounds. It gets crazy because each compound houses several families, a boat or two, golf cart or two and lots of loud music. We usually leave about that time. Of course the state parks don't allow that sort of thing, so you should be fine. We love April in the Keys and hopefully we'll be down there at least half of the month.

RE: SD vs TX residency

We chose Florida for several reasons, but I did hear some issues with SD if you need to get Obamacare. It seems there are only a few choices at the SD exchange, and one of which wants 6-9 months of utility receipts to prove you are a real SD resident. Not too easy to do if you are fulltimer. One company offers health insurance for the state only. Also not too good if you want to leave the state. A few years ago when we went full time, we took SD off the table right away because we didn't want to have to go back there every year or so to register the RV or get new drivers licenses, or jury duty. It can be a problem in the winter due to the weather. Howard of the RV-Dreams blog did a good post about SD and the Obamacare issues. If you don't need it, you would be okay. He also has some good information about choosing your state of residence.

RE: Thinking about installing a backsplash

I recently put up Smart Tiles in the bathroom. They look nice, were easy to install and add no weight. I don't worry that if they fall they will bust my tile floor either.

RE: Camper storage in Florida Keys

We store our 17 foot boat in a storage lot on Big Pine Key. It cost $35 a month. It seems pretty secure and the people that own it are very nice. A lot of Rv's are also stored there. It's BLK Storage and Rentals 79 Industrial Rd phone: 305-872-4848

RE: Florida RV parks

We are in central Florida just a bit north of Tampa. Our park is full. If you go further north you will have better luck. The panhandle probably has plenty of vacancies but it's because it's cold.... We are going to the Keys next week. I'll bet you could find a site at Sunshine Key....but it won't be cheap. We have a site in north GA we'll rent you, but it's cold there too. :) You can probably find something in Florida. The further north and inland will be your best bet.

RE: Newave Oven?

We have a micro/convection oven and a Nu wave oven. We prefer the nuwave. It's great for meats and vegetables, toast, muffins...etc.

RE: We Need Help!

I just don't know what to say here to offer any help. Of course they should have known the extended warranty only covered the rig they had insured it with. It's just like a car. You need different insurance for each different car and it doesn't automatically transfer over. (well you get automatic coverage for a short time when you add or trade a vehicle, but eventually you have to change the policy) As far as the extended warranty, I doubt seriously any extended warranty would cover any water damage. For it to get as bad as it did, it's obvious the coach wasn't checked regularly. I'm not sure what you mean about the steering system? Is the motor you are referring to the engine on the motorhome, or possibly a motor under a slideout that got wet? I'm sorry about your problems, but I'm guessing you won't get much help from the dealer, at this point in time.

RE: Tunnels on Blue Ridge Pkwy.

We did a lot of traveling on the BRP two summers ago...in our tow vehicle. We would never take our motorhome there. We did see a few larger RV's, but not many. As others have mentioned, some of the exits/entrances onto the BPR are not for larger vehicles. I disagree with a previous poster about this being a relaxing trip. It has a lot of steep grades and curves. Not exactly my kind of relaxation. What we did is leave the MH parked at the CG and took our truck.

RE: Highway merging rant

This is our pet peeve. Years ago I carpooled with a woman who actually thought it was the duty of the person already in the lane to yield to the merger!!!!! She was one of those people who just came on out and expected everyone to get out of her way.

RE: Keystone

The only thing I know about Keystone products is from reading a blog where the people had MAJOR problems with their trailer. Keystone stood behind them, but they had to drop off their trailer up in Indiana (I think) for months and months at a time while they put on a whole new side! The last time they put on the new side, they were supposed to put on both sides, but didn't. They were then going to have to empty the trailer again (they are fulltimers) leave it with them for months AGAIN.....and wait for the repair. They opted to trade 5th wheels and get a new one. NOT a Keystone. You can read their blog here you may have to search through it to see where they talked about the problems with the trailer, or you could email them for more info. That alone is enough for me to never buy one of their products.

EVERY day is senior day at the Tampa Rv show! :) If you don't believe me, just try looking in the crowd for your white haired spouse!

RE: Insurance Rates Changes For Claims

More than likely somewhere in your insurance contract, it states you are supposed to report all claims. As a previous claim adjuster, I can tell you that what starts out as a $3600 claim can quickly escalate. Appraisers can't always see all the hidden damage. You would also owe the vehicle owner for loss of use of their vehicle while it's being repaired (a rental car), so you're expenses could be higher. Both accidents would be considered at fault accidents and would likely increase your premiums. The company I worked for would not have canceled you, but many would. If it were me, I would bite the bullet and report the claim. That way you could get your damage fixed as well. Be prepared for a rate increase for the next three years. May I suggest you consider a driving course. These RV's really don't handle like a car, as you've found out, and a RV driving course may help you out. We bought our coach from Lazy Days Rv dealer in Tampa and took their free driver confidence course. They also offer some online driver courses FREE....and are really informative. HERE These online courses are really good and I'll bet you'll learn about tail swing and how to avoid it! Good luck

RE: Allure Resilient Vinyl Plank Flooring

We have had Allure Ultra for almost 2 years of fulltime living. We like it fine, but should have used an underlayment because you can see marks from the wood underneath. The installer didn't do what the directions said and didn't leave 1/8 inch space so we've had some buckling. His fault, not the fault of the flooring. Here is the link I posted on my blog. A few years before that DH and I installed the old style Allure flooring on our previous motorhome. It was the Allure that had the glue strips. It was nice, but when a slide leaked, it caused the glue to come undone and we had to replace a few planks. Here is the link to the blog when we did the installation ourselves. By the way, we DID leave the 1/8 inch gap as instruced by Allure and never had any buckling! We have had no trouble with the Allure that was the fault of the product. We are fulltimers, so the rig is not kept in cold climates with no heat, or hot climate with no AC. It has worked well for us, but next time I would put down some nice smooth underlayment first because in time, even those thick planks will show what's underneath. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

RE: RV Night

Can't say where they are from, but they could have been taken at most Florida state parks.
