RE: Snowbirds In Limbo As Coronavirus Upends Travel Plans

We and others we know are out here full-time and there is no shortage of open parks to stay at. Most state parks, corp of engineer and other public parks are closed, but most private parks are open. Most will want you to reserve and pay online or by phone. There is not the big problem many seem to think there is. Gas stations are open. Rest areas are open and if they weren't, there are still big parking lots at various places of closed businesses to stop. Walmart and grocery stores are open etc.

RE: Closing campgrounds and no where to go

Private parks are open. State parks are not the only option. Expand your horizons and you will find lots of places to stay.

RE: Front Tire alignment failure

Is there a steering stabalizer on the front? Is that aligned right? We had a stabalizer installed and it pulled badly to the right, took 3 times for the shop to get it adjust correctly so it didn't pull.

RE: Taking RV to FLA (west cost) to pick up mother in law

Actually, when pumping gas you can place a doggie pooh bag or grocery bag over your hand, when done, turn it wrong side out as you take it off, deposit in trash and then wash your hands inside. No need to waste gloves which are in short supply in many areas.

RE: Corpus Christi/Rockport/North Padre

Why would you not spend money in Port Aransas. They are not doing anything that many others cities have already done, AND there was reported cases in that area following spring break !

RE: Moldy clothes smell

We have been full-time 9 years and have never had musty smelling clothing in the basement storage. I just put them in rubbermaid tubs. We don't get moisture in our storage areas, have never seen any condensation in them. Oh - and no bugs either - don't know how they would get in if everything is properly aligned and tight unless you leave the door open.

RE: Senior Citizens Speak Up

Yosemite Sam - couldn't get this to quote your part, or delete once it was wrong - but. We spent 2 yrs in the desert. Paid $150 first time special per month in Yuma, $250 month in Why AZ, $150 mo + elect in New Mexico, $200 mo + elec in Rockport Tx and currently in a park paying $312 mo which includes electric. If you look, there are lower cost parks available -- except in high tourist attraction areas which we avoid. When traveling we use Passport America a lot, and many campgrounds/rv parks are $25 or less per night.

RE: Senior Citizens Speak Up

We find many private parks that have rates less than a state parks. Never use state parks. Instead we go for monthly rates, corp of engineer parks, use passport america, city and county parks. We have been full-time 9 years and our average overnight cost is $9.62 night. We have a seaonally rented site at a county campground with full-hookups for $1,500 from May 1 to Oct 1. Those type of things keep our cost down tremendously. We occasionally stay at a Walmart, but no more than 5-6 nights in a year and don't boondock. Which part of the country is this? Out West you'll be lucky to get a campsite at $25 a night -- no hookups.

RE: jacks up or down

Our hydraulic cylinders do not rust. We have been full-time since 2011 and sit from 4-6 months at any one time with the jacks down/extended. We have been within a mile of salt water and that didn't happen. This is not true. I would say, consult your owners manual or see if there is an answer on your manufacturers website.

RE: Can You Pass Through States with Stay at Home Orders?

Our friends were traveling home from TX to MI and every state they contacted said YES you can travel thru the state on your way to another location. You are not a resident, so the order does not apply to you.

RE: Possible stimulus payments from Gov't

First we have to get them to finalize who is going to get it and how much. Right now their focus seems to be on expanding unemployment to get extra money out to people. They have also eliminated people who don't earn enough and people who earn too much. Unless we are in that middle area, we may not all receive a check.

RE: Heading Home (North)

Have friends traveling right now. Illinois governor issued a shelter in place for the entire state. When friends contacted the state they were told it is perfectly fine to travel thru the state on their way to MI.

RE: Multi month trip planning

We use google maps , satellite view and street view let me zoom in, check conditions of the roads and search for rv parks and campgrounds for whatever city/area I need.

RE: closures

I haven't heard of too many private parks closing. It should be on their website if they are closed.

RE: Private Seller - Financing

Financed with our credit union - no problem. They told us everything to do.

RE: F-53 V-10 Oil Capacity

Hubby starts with 6 1/2 quarts - lets engine run to circulate oil thru the new filter, then adds if needed to the full mark.

RE: Winter cost of energy. Electric plus propane/diesel?

Well, our cost hasn't been much. We are in a park in south central TX where the electricity is included in the very reasonable rate. No activites here which we don't want or need. We've used our 1 electric heater and about $35.00 in propane from Nov 24 to now.

RE: What are full timers doing?

We are full-time and currently in TX at a city park. Cement pads, FHU and nice. Overlooking the golf course. Very reasonable monthly rates too. This is one of many city our county parks we have found that are excellent and cheaper than state parks. We stay at Corp of Engineer Parks, also very reasonable. Private parks using the Passport America Discount and have a seasonal site at a county park for the summer in MI. Also very reasonably priced. If everything closed, we'd park at Walmart or any large parking lot where allowed.
