RE: GFCI not cooperating with me

When ours wouldn't reset, it was worn out and had to be replaced. New one worked fine.

RE: sell home or not to sell

I'd sell the house as long as you know you won't want to move back into it. We knew if we bought again, it wouldn't even be in the same state. Sell it so you are free to buy wherever and whenever you want. Store minimum things. You may want different styles of furniture (new) to go with the new place in the future. Only keep things that are special to you. You can always rent an apartment to try an area out and/or for the buying process/ purchasing new furniture , any remodeling you would like to do etc before moving into the new.

RE: Tires, lol

We have Toyo's on our motorhome - load range H for the weight which is actually a couple thousand pounds more than needed. We are very happy with them. 7 years old now so will be replacing because of age, but they still look like new tires and have plenty of tread.

RE: What do you use for an outdoor ground cover?

We have outdoor rugs that are a heavy weave and come in various sizes. We purchased them at Lowe's. They are not cheap but we have had ours 10 years now and they are starting to show some wear. They are heavy and do not blow away. We put them out only when we are going to sit for a month if it's permitted. Some places don't allow rugs/mats. They travel rolled up in our pass thru storage compartment on the motorhome. They are each approx 10'X12' so cover the entire area under our main awning.

RE: Changing Cruise Control on a F53

We have a F53, and there was a recall that had something to do with wiring and the cruise control. We had ours repaired under this recall in about 2015/16. Do a google search for recalls related to cruise controls on the F53 chassis , there are multiple recalls for various things.

RE: Time for air conditioner replacement

We helped someone replace theirs. We googled their make/model and got an exact replacement online. Hubby installed for them.

RE: Engine idle surges up and down when stopping at lights

I had a GMC Jimmy that did that. EGR valve kept clogging with carbon. Hubby would take it off, blow it out with air compressor and then it was good for about 3 months. If we didn't do that, the idle got worse and it would stall, service engine light would then come on. The surge is what told me it was starting again and he needed to do that.

RE: How to get a loan for RV

We had great luck with our credit union. Banks didn't want to loan the smaller amount we needed. Most were 50,000+ on motorhomes.

RE: Stimulus Late in Arriving

SS people who do NOT file taxes but have automatic deposits are receiving their stimulus #3 with a payment date of April 7th. Ours is already showing as pending in our account. If you file taxes, you should already have received it.

RE: Toilet lasted 22 months, replaced it

They must not make em like they used to, just like everything else. Our Aqua Magic is 21 years old. Hubby fixed the spring for the foot petal and it rinses all the way around the rim. I'd be upset if I was changing one after 22 months !

RE: Internet for 4 months

Verizon offers a mobile internet device with various data plans. Not tied to your phones, independent. We receive internet in places that cell phone don't work. Different signal for data devices. If you are going to be in a rural/remote area, I'd consider a stand alone device. If in a city, there's lots of choices with a cell phone.

RE: Domicle not getting caught?

Don't fake it. Start full-time in the middle of the year by establishing your residency in one of the no tax states. You then file a pt-time resident tax form for the prior year with NY and your federal using the new address provided to you. Whatever state you establish your residency in, open bank accounts. Transfer your vehicle registration from NY to that state, buy vehicle insurance, set up bank accounts, register to vote etc. Do all the things you would do if you had bought a real house there. NY would not have any grounds to come after you. New address on everything , social security, medicare, all mail, etc. We use SD and have for 11 years.

RE: RV Roof Tape

We also did all seams and around vents etc with eternabond tape several years ago after the refrigerator vent leaked. Haven't had any problem since.

RE: Storms and Tornados

Our weather radio automatically knows what county we are in. Easy to use.

RE: Biloxi/Gulfport Ms crowds

They don't usually get large crowds on spring break. We spent 4 winters there and never had a problem with crowds except in the fall when the old cars were there, or Mardi Gras.

RE: Wallpaper

I'd use vinyl on vinyl wallpaper paste for whatever you put up. I put some border up about 8 years ago and all is still fastened down tightly. I just roughed up the vinyl lightly with fine sandpaper and put it up. ( cleaned it well too).

RE: Old Vs New Rig

We have a 2000 V10 36' and will put money into this long before we would buy new/er. We have a quality build and have had no major issues in the 10 years we have owned it. Floorplan works great for us. We'll just keep this paid off one, and you will probably be happier with yours, as long as you like your coach.

RE: Free overnight camping in small towns

We have found many of those places on freecampsites.net. Have stayed at some and some were parking lot type, others were really nice. Allstays.com also has city parks listed.

RE: Big truck passing

If you haven't heard about the Cheap Handling Fix, do a google search and read about it. See if it applies to you. We did front and rear on our F53 chassis and it made a big difference.

RE: LA-12/US-190

We did it a couple years ago with a motorhome and all was good.
