RE: Signing a power of attorney for bank when selling your RV

I have a prospective buyer for my RV and HE is getting a loan thru Southeast Financial. I have complied with all their requests, RV inspection, Purchase Order, now they want me to sign a Power of Attorney giving them control over my title prior to giving me a check. I said I would sign one and hand it over with the title on receipt of the check. They said no check till I sign it. QUESTION. Has anyone done this ? Do I have concern ? ETC. ? BOGUS, FRAUDULENT!!!!!! DEAL. CALL YOUR POLICE DEPT. AND GIVE THEM THE NAME, ADDRESS AND PHONE NUMBER OF THIS BUYER.

RE: Filling Propane While Traveling

Where do you fill propane while traveling? I know a lot of campgrounds will have someone that is mobile and can come to your site, but what if you are going boodocking. The company that fills my house tank use to do but now they have a new truck and something to do with increased pressure. My tank are 30 pounds so not that easy to move around. Ed Down load an application from the Apple computer store. Its free. Type in the word propane and it give you all the places that sell propane around where you are located.

RE: RV sites recommendations for Roseburg,OR, Brookings OR

https://www.sevenfeathers.com/ 7 Feathers RV park is outstanding but make reservations. There is a 24 hr. shuttle service to the Casino and back to the RV park. There are 3 restaurants and a great ice cream shop:) Recommend making reservations at Brookings as well.

RE: trailer size and campsites in National Parks

When you are looking at Trailers also look at Sleeping bed size, Tank sizes... Tank size will be a major factor determining how often to you have empty or fill up you fresh water tanks, depending on where you are staying. In RV parks with full hook ups, no problem. .

RE: trailer size and campsites in National Parks

Your Ram truck will work on flat roads and no strong winds. Could be a different story when you start traveling up mountains or driving into strong head winds. If your truck is diesel, strongly recommend an exhaust brake. If possible, I would recommend a Dodge 2500 att least. I get a real laugh whenever I pass a big 2500 TV pulling a little 20' TT up a 7% grade through the mountains with my little 3.6L Canyon pulling a 30' 7000# TT. :B Interesting perspective. In the long run, whose engine is working harder and which engine will last longer without any major engine repairs?

RE: trailer size and campsites in National Parks

When you are looking at Trailers also look at Sleeping bed size, Tank sizes... If you are looking for solar, note that when it says wired for solar most just talk about a port in the side of the trailer that has wires to the batteries..... A queen bed in a Trailer can mean either a camper queen or an actual queen. Also take a good hard look at the Towing Specs for your rig too. That will have a big factor on what you can buy also... My RAM 1500 will tow 7900, but will it really? with a safe margin? A lot to consider. and I need to have one by the end of next month. Your Ram truck will work on flat roads and no strong winds. Could be a different story when you start traveling up mountains or driving into strong head winds. If your truck is diesel, strongly recommend an exhaust brake. If possible, I would recommend a Dodge 2500 att least.

RE: trailer size and campsites in National Parks

21 feet seems to be the max in Oregon for the most part. Bigger is not always better. So many variables here. Not true about Oregon What are you saying about Oregon I have stayed in numerous state parks there and my 37Ft motor home fits fine - please clarify Getting reservations for parks in Oregon is difficult at best especially in the summer months and on weekends:(

RE: Route suggestions please!

We will be leaving Dec. to travel out west to see sites in Southern Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and other states. We fulltime so we do not have a time schedule. Not sure what are the best routes to take to see interesting places along way. Any suggestions are very appreciated. Thank you Tara Not too familiar with Texas other than getting caught in a hail storm in north texas----$15K damage to my truck and trailer in 15 min.:( But I would keep an eye on the severe weather currently in Texas and make sure you have a Weather Station Radio that gets National weather in your trailer and in your RV.

RE: towing

Odd that there is just one topic here… I have AAA for RVs but it does not cover what I really need. Does Good Sam offer roadside assistance insurance that is similar? My AAA mainly is to cover towing when out of town, but I have a truck camper and tow a cargo trailer. Technically aaa does not cover the trailer being towed, but just the "heavy" truck/camper which needs a big tow truck/more expensive. I need a plan to cover my entire rig. I just got towed but had to get a friend to come to the next state to tow my trailer out. It took a full day for aaa to get the right tow truck to me, they sent two small ones despite being told I was 10,000 lbs. Im not interested to repeat this. AAA Roadside Service is totally inadequate for RVers. AAA was not designed for RVers and AAA does not have complete coverage in all cities!!!! Such a deal:)

RE: Traveling in Oregon

It's now legal in Calif, too, and we have not had any problems. . In Calif. there has a significant increase in the number of people being robbed/shot at in their homes due to people going around town looking for marijuana to buy or steal. There have been cases there people looking for drugs have gone to the wrong address of a home.

RE: Going from Direct TV to Dish Need information

OK guys, We are fed up with Direct tv and are going to switch our home and RV to Dish. We had the roof winegard for Direct TV but just sold the big Class A and bought a small Class C. We are short ( 1 to 2 months) trip takers maybe a couple times a year. We plan to buy a portable satellite Dome based on the answers here (as I always get great info) No one will be in our house when we leave so do not need service in the stick built during that time. Our RV has a satellite cable set up that will go to the box and then from the box to the TV we had installed when we had the new tv set up. Here goes- What has everyone found to be the best portable satellite for Dish. When calling Dish network, what do we ask for. We will want 2 receivers in our house and one receiver in the motorhome but hopefully not a separate account or is it better and cheaper to just take the second receiver from the house. Local channels while traveling is not important. Do I tell them one of the receivers will be in the RV and will the receiver in the RV need to be set up by Dish or can we do it. With our direct tv system. The receiver in the RV was just an additional $7 a month and was just connected to our home account. Since we are starting from scratch with Dish Network I figure someone here has a new system you have installed and can guide me which way to go that works and keeps the cost down. Just call 1-800-333-3474 for Dish Network tech support. Explain how you want to use your Dish i.e. 1 tv or 2 tvs, do you want a permanently mounted automatic satellite on your roof ,do you want a automatic dish that you can sit next to your RV (Play Maker) ??? They will walk you through your options, choices.

RE: Easiest snowbird route from Seattle to Phoenix in January

At 101 I would head south to Hwy 20 and go east to I-5Popular route but I'd take Lakeville Rd from Petaluma 37 780 680 580 5. But either way you still have the 2 passes out of Lost Hills to consider. Of course you can cut back to 101 and deal with LA... I would not take 299 through Redding, too much road construction, mud slides and possible snow. The Lakeville Rd route would have more traffic, especially when towing.

RE: Easiest snowbird route from Seattle to Phoenix in January

We live in Birch Bay and head south for the winter. We leave the week before turkey day and drive non stop to Salem where we spend Thanksgiving with our friends. We then continue on until we hit the Rolling Hills casino in Corning. From there you should be free of bad weather. Unfortunately, we have to stop in Komifornia to spend Christmas with our daughter and then on to AZ and then Mexico. Watching the weather, we might head to the coast at Grants Pass and continue down 101 At 101 I would head south to Hwy 20 and go east to I-5

RE: Easiest snowbird route from Seattle to Phoenix in January

We’re new to this forum and snowbirding. Found an RV spot near Phoenix for 2 months but I’m a little nervous about the idea of towing our trailer over the Siskiyou’s in January. Looking for the safest route to take from Seattle to Phoenix in January ( we will have lots of time, just want to get there alive lol). Would love any suggestions.. Thank you!! If at possible, change your trip schedule to one earlier or 1 month later. I drive: 1. I-5 2. East on hwy. 58 out of Bakersfield 3. south on 395 to I-10 4. East on I-10 to Ariz.
