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.

RE: Mailing services again

You don't say which state you're choosing as your domicile state. If it's Florida, I can recommend St. Brendan's Isle in Green Cove Springs, FL.

Looking for new local email client

I've been using Thunderbird almost forever but getting very tired of the 'unresponsive script' warnings that I can't find a solution for. Has anyone else found a decent local email client that can import messages/folders/accounts directly from Thunderbird? During a quick search, it looked like Opera might fit the bill. Any Opera users out there? Just to reiterate, I don't want to switch to webmail. I prefer a local email client.

RE: Florida Pruduce Stops

I saw one on a secondary road that specifically included pick up trucks on the sign. One day when I wasn't in a rush, I stopped and talked to the officer and they were more concerned with folks who had aux fuel tanks, filling up in the 'wrong' state.

RE: Snowbird rates

At the park where I'm currently staying (like many parks in FL), they publish low season and high season rates. Low season is $460/month plus electric. High season is $825/month (includes electric).

RE: Lousy Customer Service

Hello navy AZ1- Thank you for taking the time to let us know of your situation and my sincere apologies. I have forwarded this to my executive team and requested that we have someone reach out to you. Thank you and have a good day! Elizabeth Black-Osborn Marcus Rapid Response Team OMG, do they actually teach you at CW to tell someone who is obviously very irate and disgusted with your lack of customer service to have a good day?

RE: Any experience with rvinspection.com

...You are throwing money away on an inspection company that guaranties nothing for the money you spend and who is credentialed by another company with no real history and/or accountability. Yep, the owner of that other company is the same guy who runs workamper news. Looks like same business model, different clientele.

RE: Replacing swollen wood on slide out bottom (outside)

Here's a company in the Pacific northwest that should understand your problem. I've used the epoxy sealer and it does a great job. http://www.rotdoctor.com/products/cpes.html

RE: Workamping question

I workamped for the summer at a KOA in upstate NY a few years ago. One of the other workamper couples got cable internet hooked up at their site so the wife could do her medical transcription work at night. May not be available at all campgrounds but if it's possible, they'll do it for the right price.

RE: Applying for Unemployment Benefits

I think the program varies by state. Here in FL (and probably many other states) you're automatically disqualified from unemployment if you only work seasonal jobs. I suppose the rationale behind that is you knew going in that the job would end on X date. Have you checked the state website for their requirements?

RE: Newbies- black tank question

Your black tank needs to be at least half full before dumping to carry solids out. NEVER leave the black tank valve open. That will result in the dreaded poop pyramid.
