RE: Rv Travel Nursing

Since your actual question deals with internet access while of the road, you might want to ask the moderator to move your post to Technology Corner.

RE: Winegard Sensar Antenna issues.

Is the antenna oriented in the proper direction?

RE: How many of you full timers work only seasonally?

Without knowing anything about your finances or lifestyle, I would think if both you and your GF work the sugar beet harvest, then Amazon warehouse, you might be able to take the rest of the year off. BTW, the sugar beet harvest is not picking. You work at a central piling station. Both jobs are hard work but good money for seasonal temps. Also, where is the sugar beet harvest going on?? Is that something you've done? Any clue how much you could make there? I worked 3 seasons at the beet harvest, 2 as piler operator and 1 as foreman. Pay depends on what job you do. Here's a link to learn more: http://sugarbeetharvest.com/Official start date each year is Oct 1 but the pre-pile starts in September and you can ask to start then. The work isn't as steady in pre-pile but the camping is still paid for.

RE: Working at Amazon - The Good the Bad and the Ugly

RE: National General has lost my business!_

That reminds me of an old joke about a store that was selling chicken for $1 per pound. A customer walked in and told the manager that a store down the street was selling chicken for $0.50 per pound. The manager then asked why he didn't buy his chicken at the other store. Well, the other store was out of chicken. "If I was out of chicken, I'd sell it for $0.25 a pound." Those other insurance companies can say whatever they want since they won't actually have to process your claim. NEVER take any sales person's word on what will or won't be covered. I believe most states will allow you x number of days to review the policy and decline it if it doesn't fill the bill. It sounds like your leak was probably caused by lack of maintenance. Some things an owner just has to take responsibility for. I've had my fair share of slide repairs due to water intrusion. Never even considered a call to an insurance company.

RE: Another Surge Protector Post

I really want to hear more about all the folks who just sit in the RV for the entire stay, staring at a volt meter to see when they need to unplug. Do you ever get any sleep? See any sights? Get the PI EMS and enjoy your stay. It will cut off power to your RV for several different dangerous situations, wait 2 minutes, then reestablish power if it's safe.

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: 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.
