RE: Medicare Advantage Plans

I just signed up for Plan G medigap policy back in May. My thing was I didn't want to be tied to a network and wanted to make sure if I needed medical attention as long as my doctor or facility takes medicare they have to see me. I just pay for an annual part B deductible of 198 but add my monthly premium. I got prices for all major companies and it's surprising how much the difference can be but by federal law the plan has to offer the same benefits but the insurance company can certainly charge different rates. Be sure to do your research because it can be beneficial or not so much. I had to do all the research when my husband turned 65 and it paid off for us.

RE: Heading to Cades Cove. ?Route 28 Franklin to Lauada?

Is the 'tail of the dragon' how you describe what is likely the worst traffic jam found in any NP? It's a famous twisty road in North Carolina. https://tailofthedragon.com/ 317 turns in 11 miles. We have ridden it many times, yep it's twisty. Really busy with motorcycles on weekends.

RE: WiFi

We just had fiber optics installed at our seasonal site in NC. The slow internet speed was a killer and we stream alot. So frustrating as someone said too many pigs at the trough. LOL! Now we only have one hog...and it pays the bill. We also can put it on vacay mode for up to 6 months. I don't know if that is an option but to us it's worth it.

RE: VA rt 822 to Goose Point Park on Phillpott lake

LOL...I like the description mountain goat road. When we visit my hometown, Bassett, Va, that is where we stay. It does have a beautiful view. The last time we were there they lock the gate at 10PM and there is no getting in after that. However, the road is kinda of scary after dark due to the wildlife. BTW...that is the only campground I have ever had anything stolen, guess they liked my aluminum table more than we did.

RE: Fridge Assistance and Troubleshooting

Try a mobile rv tech. Might be worth the extra money for them to come to you.

RE: Teaching Your Spouse How to Pull a Trailer

If she wants to learn, she will, if she doesn't, no one can teach her. You are exactly right! For me as the DW, I want to be comfortable with whatever we are driving or towing. Lately I have made sure that I get my seat time when on the road. Our major problem is that I am also the navigator using gps and my phone for the map programs, little difficult if there is a problem, like a wrong turn. LOL!

RE: What do you shut off when leaving for a trip

For years we did nothing ....until..... A lightning strike that tripped our garage breaker for 11 days. In our garage we had a freezer and a refrigerator. It also took out all our house phones, several tvs, amplifier on tower antenna and rotor. Now we have neighbor that checks on house and picks up our mail. Oh man, the garage smelled like there was a dead body, it was AWFUL. I have weak stomach so DH had to dig hole in back of property after we froze all the rotten stuff and bury it. Lesson learned....get to know a trustworthy neighbor. We do turn off hot water heater and AC.

RE: Dicor lap Sealant

Do not use self-leveling sealants on anything but horizontal surfaces. All horizontal....is all dicor the same as in if we buy some at walmart or an rv store?

RE: Dicor lap Sealant

Can you use Eternabond instead of or with the Dicor? We figured with all the sealant up there and it appears to be self leveling that is what we would put back. It looks like there is an aluminum lip that is screwed down on the edge of the roof and then the old sealant.

Dicor lap Sealant

This is not for either campers but our enclosed trailer. We washed it up today and the sealant around the top is coming off pretty bad. Our enclosed trailer has an aluminum one piece roof. I figure if we use our pressure washer then it will take most of the old sealant off. It's a 14' trailer so I am thinking maybe 2 tubes. What do yall think? Any other steps we might need to take. thanks in advance...

RE: Been away for a while

I am 65, the wife and DH is 76 and there has certainly been a slow down. However, the last few campers that we have purchased I made sure that I would be comfortable driving our truck, towing, setting up and tearing down. Presently we own a truck camper, which I LOVE, him not so much and a 21 foot travel trailer. A few years ago we had a 32 foot 5th wheel and sure am glad that thing is gone! Get something you are comfortable with or can get comfortable with. Life is short enough.

RE: Another Mile, Another Day

We follow the rule of 3,s. 300 miles or 3:00 pm whichever comes first. 3 cocktails, 1 for her and 2 for me. Great idea! Gotta remember that on next trip.

RE: Printing?

A friend's computer would not print using edge browser. He finally switched to Chrome and it prints fine now.

Can't go wrong with Salt Springs. Make your reservations early though.

RE: Yet another reason to love trailering

Totally agree with having my own nest. I think with the exception of a cruise a year and a half ago, which I altered my sleeping habits, it has been years since I slept in a bed that we didn't own. Hopefully going to keep it that way for a long time.

RE: Router speeds OUT of our router

Yes, would love to get that speed too! However, our internet and cellphones been so screwed up here lately. We are thinking due to all the distant learning and things going on. Personally I think they are powering down towers and slowing internet speeds to keep up with the demand.
