RE: Full-time in the Arizona heat

Depends on where you are staying. We spent last summer (April thru September) in Prescott Valley and easily weathered it. It did get hot (95-100°) during July and August but our two A/Cs handled it well.

RE: Alaska Marine Highway

You may want to check our 2009 blog when we made that same trip, spending over three weeks going from Prince Rupert to Haines. We left Prince Rupert on May 28 and arrived in Haines on June 19. Many things have changed I'm sure in the last 10 years but you can get a good idea of the trip. We left home in Florida on March 23 and returned home on October 1. All 87 stops of the trip are on that blog.

RE: Be Careful, There Are Snakes in Idaho

Most shops quote man hour labor rates. If you use two people for an hour that would be two man hours and twice the man hour rate. And I don't mean this as a flame as it was most likely just a misunderstanding.

RE: Camping etiquette

That's when you're tempted to string some of this up between your sites to enforce a little better order! :E

RE: Grand Canyon (South Rim) to Sedona in 2020

I wouldn't take AZ-89A unless you like thrill rides and have great insurance. I-17 down to AZ-179 is the best way and probably the fastest since 89A has a lot of slow moving traffic..

RE: Cuts to the Senior discount coming?

The National Park Service has done this since 2009 when we visited Alaska. In June of 2009 they started charging additional fees for campsites that had electric/sewer charged an extra fee. As shown at Recreation.gov they charge extra for electric and sewer and (as we found out in 2009) the discount is only available on the basic fee. This was new in the summer of 2009 as we had made reservations several months before and got the discount on the whole campsite fee but when we wanted to add on a couple of days found that terms had changed and we wouldn't get the discount on anything but the basic fee. So this isn't really new since the NFS has been doing it for 10 years except they are talking about restricting the discount a little more than NFS. I just don't think it has been as noticeable since fewer NFS sites have additional amenities.

RE: Closed threads re web problems.

When I still occasionally had the problem after they "supposedly" fixed it, I noticed that many of the posts I was trying to see were multiple page posts. As suggested by others, I went into My Preferences and reduced my Post per Page from 20 to 10 and it seems to have fixed the problem for me. Your mileage may vary!!

RE: Camping around Christmas time

I would second the recommendation of Charleston. James Island County Park is very nice and they have the best Holiday Festival of Lights drive we have ever experienced and we have seen more than a few. However staying at James County Park Campground will be hard to reserve at this late date. I would recommend Oak Plantation Campground where we spent Christmas a couple of years ago and had a great time. Don't tarry as they fill up as well. You can still see the Holiday Festival of Lights drive with out staying at James Island but it will require a little patience for the drive as it is extremely popular.

RE: Places To dine

downhome, you mentioned Prescott in another post so don't know if this would apply but while in the Prescott area there is a small cafe down in Dewey just south of Prescott Valley that has very good food. It is the Blue Hills Cafe and offers all kinds of meals at great prices. We spent the summer in PV last year and enjoyed several meals at the Blue Hills.

RE: Recommendations for Receiving Mail while Full Timing?

I used USPS STORE. They provide a real address. Emphasis on the word 'store'. It is NOT the United postal service. https://www.theupsstore.com/ I locate a 'USPS Store' where I am at and I sign up. Then I go to the official United Postal Service on line and click on forward my mail to that address. https://www.usa.gov/post-office#item-213659 Post office forwarding is good for 4 months. If I stay longer than 4 months or move location you just go back and renew your forwarding to new USPS STORE where you are at. Lol I did this for over 6 years! :C I believe you mean UPS STORE not USPS STORE. USPS is the United States Parcel Service, in other words the post office. UPS is the United Parcel Service which has no association with the government.

RE: Recommendations for Receiving Mail while Full Timing?

A lot depends on what state you domicile in. If you retain a Florida address then it doesn't matter. If you want a mail service that gives you a Florida address for domicile purposes then you have more limited choices. There is Escapees, I think Passport America uses an outfit in Tampa and there is another on Green Cove Springs that a lot of people like. There maybe others that I don't know about.That would be St. Brendan's Isle. We have used them since 2006 and love them!!

RE: 50 amp coach on 30 amp power

Being Comanche, I'm just gonna strt a campfire in the middle of the front area. My people, the original full timers, have been doing that for generations. GM I have seen a towable with a potbelly stove installed. Your way may work but I think a chimney flue would control the smoke better than a blanket! :W

RE: 50 amp coach on 30 amp power

If you exceed the 30 amps the circuit breaker on the pedestal should pop and shut off power to the coach. If we are on a 30 amp site we switch the water heater to propane only, set the inverter/charger to only use 5 amps to charge the batteries, and set the reefer to propane only (if it's an absorption type). This will allow more power to be used on other items without popping the breaker on the pedestal. Our air conditioners are also heat pumps and we have found them to be the most efficient way to heat the unit as long as outside temps are above 40°. If below 40°, we use the furnace(s) which use very little electricity. Electric heaters are about the most inefficient way you can heat a coach.

RE: Printer

Like I said in an earlier reply, we carry a B&W laser and use it almost daily, going through a ream of paper about every three months. I print out every reservation we make as proof we have made it and the deposit we made if any. I also read our hometown paper every morning and print out four of the puzzles for me to work later in the day. There are also numerous other occasions we use the printer. Since it's also a scanner and copier, it also gets occasionally used for those purposes. I wouldn't be without it.

RE: Printer

We use a Brother 2700 All-In-One printer as we are in the coach 6 or 7 months a year. Earlier we used an HP ink jet but the cartridges constantly dried out with limited use. The B/W laser printer has worked flawlessly for several years now. Unless you plan on taking the printer into the house and using it there do not get an ink jet.

RE: Where is everyone getting their wiper blades?

Even though our coach came with 32" blades we have always replaced them with 28" Michelin blades from Walmart - much cheaper, clears the windshield very well, and less drag on the motor.

RE: Holster for .44 Ruger Super Blackhawk on fishign trip

Not the most practical but maybe a western style gun belt with the holster on it and not on your pants belt. My EDC is a mere 2 lbs. and I find myself hiking up my drawers frequently. Your shootin' iron is near the 3.5 lb range with 6 bullets in it. Western rig might be the way to go. That's the way I carry my Colt Python but with a 6" barrel it takes a long coat to conceal it!

RE: Grand Canyon 2020

You might want to have a look at our 2011 blog where we did much the same as you are planning though it may have been a little earlier than you - May. The south rim portion starts here and continues to the north rim, zion, bryce, Kodachrome SP, Capital Reef, and on up. You will get an idea of how long we spent at each stop. UT-12 is the only scenic highway in Utah and boy is it scenic. I promise no ads to contend with just reports and pictures of what we did.
