RE: Georgia camping

He claims to have only learned last week that the virus can be transmitted by people who are asymptomatic...

Dont know how to get the concept to sink in with the Government offices, but maybe deterring the vacationers and weekend warriors while still accommodating the full timers who need a place to shelter would be to allow only 14 day or longer stays. Just an idea. That's what several other states are doing. Makes good sense. Rob

So... even more displaced full-timers with no place to go. Too bad the people making these decisions aren't thinking things through. We left Hacienda in Las Cruces (my home town) on 10 February after spending the winter there. I'm glad we made it to a place where we have a guaranteed site until this blows over! Rob

RE: Westlake tires

Grand Design has, until recently, put Westlakes on all their RVs. Earlier on, there were issues with the Westlake LR E tires. Since GD started putting the Westlake load range Gs on the Solitudes and Momentums, there have not been any documented issues on either of the Grand Design forums (and folks do like to complain about tires). Our new 2020 Solitude came with the load range G Westlakes (we had Sailun Gs on our previous fifth wheel) and I plan to run the Westlakes for now. I may replace them a bit earlier than I would have the Sailuns, but the Westlake Gs are developing a good reputation among those who have them. When replacement time comes, though, it will be with Sailun S637s. Edit/PS: no matter what tire you run, I consider a good TPMS to be critical. Rob

RE: RV Insurance (Full Time)

Have you used the search function on the forum? There are MANY discussions on this topic.

RE: Gag!

My dad did that with a tube of Brylcream back in the late '50s. We heard him at the other end of the house. Rob

RE: New luxury off grid trailer -- very fancy . . .

I saw this several months ago, so it appears to not be a hoax. Rob

RE: Insurance Recommendation?

tdWho likes their RV insurance? I am picking up a new to me 2012 Roadtrek and will be calling around for quotes. I'll be calling USAA but I want to get 2 or three more quotes as well. Any suggestions - good or bad. Thanks. I have had USAA for more than 25 yrs. and have had only tow claims over this period. They are absolutely pathetic. They advertise they are there for service and ex service personnel like myself but that's all BS and hype. They like most are simply trying to make as many $$ as they possibly can without having to pay out any or very little. That bunch that sits down in Texas HQ and talk to you on the phone are nothing but sales people looking for a commission on the sale. It has taken me 25+ years to realize how crummy they really are. They take the insurance premiums and buy up other businesses to grow the company. They worked with an adjustment firm that are in their pocket and nothing more than yes men and women in USAA favor and therefore always trying to save USAA money on any claim. IMHO, your experience is extremely atypical. I've been with USAA for almost 40 yeas and have filed numerous claims - including when my first wife was killed in an accident. USAA could not have been better. I can't imagine what happened to you to cause you to wage such a smear campaign. Rob

RE: Insurance Recommendation?

We have our fifth wheel, both vehicles, renter's and umbrella policy with USAA. The coverage, service and prices are excellent. USAA, however, will only insure towable RVs. If your Roadtrek is classified as a motorhome, USAA will shunt you to Progressive... still not a bad deal if you're a USAA member. You'll usually get the best prices if you insure your RV with whichever company you have all your other insurance with. Rob

RE: New DISH equipment to sell, husband died

We've had good luck with Facebook Marketplace on several items lately. If you have a FaceBook account, you might try that. The last few things I listed on Craigslist only resulted in being contacted by scammers. Rob

RE: Long Bed

The Reflection travel trailers (Grand Design) that have the bed in a slide can be had with a king bed as an option. The Reflection TTs are heavy - one model at 10K lbs. GVWR and the other at 11,300 lbs. GVWR. You would need plenty of tow vehicle. Reflection travel trailers Rob

RE: Carlsbad Caverns is closed

I understand why. I'm getting too old to walk all the way in and back out and I certainly wouldn't want to get on one of those elevators with a crowd of people right now. Rob

RE: Quaresma ( holy week )

Hmmm... my wife is a native Spanish speaker (and has a masters degree in Spanish) and is a former missionary. She says that "cuarentena" is used in the context of the 40 days of staying in and abstinence from sex after a woman delivers a baby. Quaresma is a Portuguese word for Lent. Rob

RE: Question for those out on the road now

New Mexico has closed their state parks and campgrounds - other states (like Florida) are following suit. There is a long list of military campgrounds who are not allowing campers to come in who are not already there. Our son in Cincinnati says Ohio is considering stopping all through traffic at the state lines. I think it would be foolish to try to plan unnecessary travel at this time. Rob

RE: General Question About Routers

Read all about it here: TechnoMadia Bottom line - most of us use a 4G cellular hot-sport (Verizon calls them a "Mi-Fi") for internet access. All the major carriers offer them but coverage, cost, and data allowances vary from provider to provider. Depending on your carrier, you can get internet anywhere you have a a cellular tower with a good signal that's not overloaded with traffic. We have a Verizon Mi-Fi with unlimited data (a plan you can't get any more) and it has served us extremely well as full-timers. Rob

RE: Trying to decide which way to go on fifth wheel hitch

There are a LOT of people on the Grand Design forums pulling the lighter rigs with the Turning Point pin boxes. I've not seen anyone post about having any issues with the Turning Point setup. It was designed just for people like you with short bed trucks. What kinds of problems have you been reading about? Rob

RE: What are full timers doing?

We are currently in a privately owned park that is staying open. On the 25th we'll move to an Army resort 30 minutes up the road - checked with them and everything is business as usual with some enhanced standard precautions and closure of the meeting hall and large gatherings. After three weeks there, we have reservations through July at various military famcamps. It seems only a few states and counties are being reactionary about their campgrounds... and mostly to protect their employees and staff - not the rest of us. Rob

RE: Camco water filter

Full-timers' perspective here. Our previous fifth wheel did not have a built-in water filter. We used the blue Camco filters and left them in place for three months of full-time use (had a reminder in the calendar that popped up). Our new Solitude has a built-in cartridge style filter (like in a house) and we'll follow the manufacturer's recommendations on that. For drinking and making coffee, we have a separate water filter pitcher we keep in the frig. Municipal water supplies (and the well system at the park where we are now) are safe - they just don't always taste good. With the double filtering (including at least one carbon filter element) what we drink tastes as good as anything we can buy at the store - and this method greatly reduces plastic waste. Rob

RE: Route from NY to NM

I agree with Lwiddis. You'll not have time to sight-see travelling that distance in just a week. Also, New Mexico (my home state) is a very large place. You'll be able to see one very small part of it in a week. Rob
