RE: Beginning RVer: Is this Scenario Doable?

Apply for the loan while still living at your current residence. Bill Exactly what I said earlier. Unless you're planning on being 'homeless' for a while, certainly you will buy the RV while still residing where you do, am I right? Forget all the other stuff.

RE: Beginning RVer: Is this Scenario Doable?

Surely you'll purchase it while you're still in your apartment (although very near the end of your lease) -- use that address.

RE: Road Debris Damage

Isn't that why we carry insurance? Hopefully you don't have a crazy high deductible -- take a look at your policy.

RE: I am the truck killer!

Hate to be the bearer of bad news on your ol' 2002, but if you haven't replaced the brake lines or fuel lines that will be next... If he waited 20 years to replace plugs and wires, maybe the OP just isn't that much into truck maintenance --- just sayin'

RE: Planning a trip to Alaska sometime 2023

The days of using your drivers license are long gone. They went out due to 9/11. Yes, you need a passport. Canada may or may not care but to get back into the USA, you will need to show it (if you are a US Citizen, you will eventually get back in but how many hours do you want to spend at the border because you didn't have the right paperwork?) There is a passport card available but it's very limited. A full passport takes about the same amount of time/effort to get and is much more versatile if you will ever do any international travel beyond Canada/Mexico. But you STILL need a driver's license. Those days are not gone. Always carry it, and always use it as one of your forms of ID.

RE: Vacation Home Buying Fizzling. RV's too?

Well, I can tell you one place where vacation home buying is far from fizzling. Vacation homes are selling at a record pace here, most of them hit the MLS and are under contract within 24 - 36 hours, at sky-high prices, usually closing at a figure well above the listing price. Personally I see some of the air being let out of this balloon, eventually, but for now it's full steam ahead, and there are plenty of cash buyers that are paying way too much for properties. Now is definitely the time to sell, and NOT the time to buy. :C

RE: Renting out your RV

Having been in the RV rental business, if you want to see your rig trashed, destroyed, damaged in ways you never thought of and filthy beyond belief, then rent it out. . . . and while you're thinking about that, give your insurance company a call, tell them of your intentions, and get some input from them.

RE: Key west

"Before I 75 was put in, I used to drive Tampa to Key West all the way on US 41." ..... except for that stretch of US-1 for the last 3 hours of the trip, eh? Yep -- 41 thru tampa, gibsonton, ruskin,sarasota,punta gorda,etc all the way to Krome Ave, then to US 1 . . . . so you really didn't drive "all the way to Key West on US41", did you? :W

RE: OEM vs Aftermarket - Chinese JUNK Comparison

A small segway here --- when your vehicle is involved in a not-at-fault accident, insist on filing a claim for DIMINISHED VALUE as well, because you can be sure your previously-damaged vehicle will be worth a LOT less when trade-in or resale time rolls around. Don't get caught short!

RE: Ford Parts

I guess what I should have said is that Ford is the only one that can LEGALLY use the logo/trademark, but anybody can use any domain name they want to once they own it. TRUE ! That does not mean that they don't license the name and logo to third parties. A couple of years ago there were Ford branded generators. The only thing Ford about them as the name and the logo. Yup. Licensing = legal Just like crappy watches with designer names on them. Those designers probably know less about watches than I do (but China can still crank em' out by the thousands!)

RE: Ford Parts

Looks legitimate to me. Only Ford can use the ford.com domain. Only Ford can use the Ford logo/trademark, but anyone can buy any domain if it's available. I could buy Amazon.com if it came up for sale and I had enough $$$$$ to buy it! Inversely, anyone can use anyone's logo/trademark in their sales pitches, as evidenced by all the spam texts and emails that show those logos but are obviously not those companies. A quick click on the sender's email address of something legitimate looking from Visa card might show an actual email address of something like &%(^(@&$(@(*$&&visa.mysite.com. Obviously not Visa. And yes, you could buy and use the Ford domain if you had the money, and if it was available, but not until Ford agrees to sell it. I guess what I should have said is that Ford is the only one that can LEGALLY use the logo/trademark, but anybody can use any domain name they want to once they own it.

RE: 2005 Fleetwood Providence 39S

Is this a motorhome you own? If so, the solution is obvious -- just measure it.

RE: My campsite map now up to 740 sites

Pretty cool! Thanks for sharing. Somehow I expected with 740 sites they'd be more spread out across our beautiful country. Happy travels.

RE: catalytic converter stolen

https://www.epa.gov › documents › exhsysrepair Mb8 131991 - US Environmental Protection Agency Under federal law, catalytic converters may not be removed and replaced with "converter replacement pipes' by any person. The 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments even prohibit private individuals from installing "converter replacement pipes" on their own vehicles.

RE: Tow dolly or not?

OK, thanks for the education. I bought the dolly in 1999, sold it in 2015, and never an issue. Maybe the quality of the product I bought and my attention to maintenance had something to do with it --- who knows. Still, I'm a big fan of surge brakes. I'm also a fan of surge brakes, for some uses. If I was going to move skid loader with '55 F5, surge brakes work great. But I could, if had not used trailer for a while, chock the truck to be sure did not roll backward and push trailer with loader, see if tires slide. Also don't need to mess with anything if pulling MT trailer with loaded truck. But for the average RVer, that will most always tow the same load behind the same vehicle, E-brakes is a better idea. The system will tell you something is wrong, and much easier to find somebody with tool and skillset to repair. This, IMHO makes the statement and equip it with surge brakes (as opposed to electric -- although unlikely, electric can come undone, surge can't). mostly wrong. So electric brakes cannot come undone or fail, eh? OK And, not many RVers move skid loaders, at least not that I've seen, but when we start doing it, we'll refer to your comments. Apples 'n' oranges.
