RE: Question about PMBs

You can put whatever you want as an address for the DMV leaving out the PMB part however, when they type up the address for your license, it will come out with the PMB. The address you are using shows up as a commercial mail forwarding address and then gets tagged with the PMB. No way around it. I have been in Sioux Falls since 2001 and have never had an issue with it. If you are concerned about firearm purchase and being denied, the store is making up their own rules by denying the purchase. The big box stores such as Scheels, Cabelas, and a few others don't know the regulations. Find a small mom and pop shop. Been there, done that. Take a look at the state and federal regulations concerning firearms purchases. There is nothing in the regulations that state "no sales to anyone with a PMB address". If this isn't about firearms, forget that part. Yes correct about the DMV and from your answer all the mail forwarding companies will use the PMB in their address. Firearms purchase is part of the issues but as you said there is nothing in the law about PMBs. I am also a resident of Minnehaha county but spent more time in Custer County and am looking to change to Custer County so there are some things to work out. I am staying in SD in the summers and wintering in AZ JimR

RE: HELP NEEDED. Amputee looking for sunbird place in Arizona

There are so many parks and places in AZ and until you get a look around you just won't really know. Pick a place to stay at for one season and look around as there are a lot of parks with many different and yet similar amenities. I did notice a difference in the desert being different in Yuma as compared to the Phoenix area and the desert around Florence surprised me being so thick and green. Good Luck jimR

RE: Question about PMBs

Let me clear this up a little bit. I have been a SD resident since 2004 and know most of the ins and outs of using or not using the PMB. My question is for those folks that use a mail service here in SD do any of them not use a PMB number at the end of the address? My problems are when I have to pull out the drivers licence on some transactions to be used as an ID the PMB causes some issues. JimR

RE: Question about PMBs

Why not leave the "PMB" out of the address then? When the mail gets delivered to the address, they'll know what to do with it - the "PMB" doesn't help them, all they need is the box #. Bill The DMV knows the addresses of the Mail Services and they the DMV will put the PMB on the Licence I have no choice. JimR

Question about PMBs

To all SD mail forwarding clients how many of the services in SD have PMB in the address? i.e. 3916 N Potsdam Ave PMB XXXX Dakota Post and Americas Mailbox do, what about the others? If I remember right there is one in Emory, Chamberlain, Madison and another in Sioux Falls. Having issues with the PMB part of the address. JimR

RE: Carefree Awning Question

IMO it should not have bent. My topper awning material is a mesh so no water accumulates there. JimR

RE: How about another "Cooler" question

There is a camping couple in the NE part of SD who needed a long term solution for refrigeration (long term tenting non-electric) and they purchased a Yeti cooler. They reported that it worked very well for them. in the shade and 90 to 95 degree temps as the high and about 85 the norm. One of the camper mags put out an article about high en coolers and the Pelican was there top dog with I believe the Yeti second. JimR

RE: Domicile and LTCs for fulltimers

You can get a CCW from a couple of states, AZ and Utah come to mind, but not all states will recognize that permit I think that MA will have reciprocity with a few states but you would need to look that up. The MA permit does work in a few states. jimR

RE: How Do I remove This Trim Piece On A Fleetwood

I am going to ask a dumb question here but are you hearing a squeak or a whistle like sound? Reason I ask is on the driver's window there is weep holes for the water to drain out those holes have a cover on them if that cover has fell off you will get wind noise that can sometimes sound like a squeak. jimR

RE: Mail Service for RVers that Looks Like a Street Address :::

J & B, I guess I just don't know enough about the mail subject yet.. Still relatively new to full timing and believed that you had to have a "residence" address in the state for Ca... so that is great news then.. The bottom line is that although I am traveling, Ca is my home and I'd like to keep the plates.. Also, while I have never actually had this experience, I have heard that tags will not reach you if Ca DMV detect what they deem to be any sort of PMB... thanks for the response... Just to be sure my car is in California and insured in California by California licensed insurance folks and garaged in California with California personalized Dog Lover plates I am a SD resident and the mailing address is the PMB I have had no problems. All that said you may want to call DMV and ask them in case something has changed. When you call and get an answer you do not like call back and the next person will give you a different answer :B JimR

RE: Mail Service for RVers that Looks Like a Street Address :::

Lexicon7 Why are you worried about CA DMV? I have a PMB in Sioux Falls and they, CA DMV send me my bill and tags for a car I have in California and I have had no problems I also get a benefit of no county fees or taxes because I am not a resident of California. jimR

RE: Tire prices all over

Yes a set of 4. And I have been buying tires from this guy for the last 20 years. Maybe that is why the price is better. OK when I first read it I thought it was per tire :S Yes it pays to shop I was quoted from 550 to 880 on my tires and that was each. Good luck with your purchase sounds like your tire guy is the one to go with. JimR
