RE: Full Time RV living as a S Corp/1099 employee

Having been a consultant for 30 years under my own Sub S corp I would say your FL account is on track. One item if terminology is that you will not be a 1099 “employee” but rather your S corp will be a 1099 “subcontractor” to those you work for. I suggest you should be a W-2 employee of your S corp (part of the many rule changes mentioned earlier having to do with when tax payments are due). Also, as alluded to in an earlier post, you will be legally required by many states to file personal state income tax forms and pay tax for any work performed outside of Florida (another rule change). A final thought, I do not know the cost and benefits of establishing an S corporation in Florida, but Delaware is cheap, easy and protective, and then you would register your corporation to do business in FL as your “home base”.

RE: New Member in Class B Group

Hmmm… your 2022 Gulf Stream 5230B is actually a Class C RV not a B and your Firestick requires Internet access, not cable TV. Maybe it’s time to reboot. Dave

RE: Class B that sleeps 4 adults?

The Winnebago ERA A Class B sleeps two in the rear on a king or twins depending on how you set it up, and two on a sofa right behind the front seats that folds out into something that looks like a full size. Snug but doable. The sofa sits sideways but has seat belts. Dave

I have to wonder what is wrong with people that they feel the need to argue about this, but then there are some people on both sides of the border seem to want to argue about everything (such as the completely ridiculous arguments concerning fresh water tank usage under General RVing). If they open the border and you want to come south, come south. If you aren't comfortable then don't. It's entirely up to each individual. I'm heading south from New England and I'm more wary of crime than I am of Covid. Dave

RE: Fresh water tank drain.

From the 2009 Fleetwood Pulse Owners Manual (downloadable from fleetwoodrv.com): “The main water tank "quick-drain" valve is located on the end of the water tank or on the sidewall adjacent to the water tank.” Dave

RE: Best WIFI Hotspot

Or you can just use the one on your phone if your plan provides one. Saves having extra hardware. Dave

RE: Land border closed to Canada

I agree. I’m still trying to understand the science behind this since it appears CA is well ahead of the US in vaccination rate. My wife had to show proof of vaccination to attend a play last week, not sure why the same wouldn’t work at border crossings. Dave

RE: New wireless provider??

I would have one of each V and TOr combine them and add a wedge of lime snd some ice. :B Dave

RE: Pet peeve, neighbors leave porch light on

This well-beaten dead horse will no doubt garner many responses, but thanks for reminding me that I meant to disconnect the LED outside light on the driver’s side because I discovered it likes to turn itself on automatically at times (thanks to computer controlled lighting systems). As with my light, which I didn’t notice until walking the dogs in the dark because the light shines away from our coach, maybe they simply forgot to turn it off, as opposed to people who string lights around and under their RV and light them up.

RE: Does Consumer Cellular include a hot spot?

Thanks everyone for the information. I’ve been so busy working out retirement details I forgot I had actually posted this instead of having it rattling around in my head! Dave

RE: What's in your tool kit? What about other must-haves?

LED Headlamp. The kind that has elastic to fit on your head. Preferably with a tiltable lamp and one that can also provide a night vision red illumination. Mine sits on top of my tool bag when we travel. Dave

RE: Ruined manual transmissions

So I guess everyone should have said no and you would be happy. Instead you feel the need to toss insults. When no transfer case is involved It all depends on the design of the transmission. If the output shaft is on the bottom the transmission will be okay because it is lubricated by being bathed in oil. If the output is on top and the input on the bottom you stand a chance of damage because the lower input shaft is not turning and providing oil on the output shaft which is being driven by the wheels. In the end it does not matter if someone reported they personally had a manual transmission fail while towing because it depends on the design and therefore the make and model of the vehicle being towed.

RE: RV surveyors

I flew to Atlanta to buy my Country Coach and when I sold it a buyer flew from California to Philadelphia then drove 90 miles to get my coach. Happens all the time. To the OP’s question, there is no such thing as a licensed surveyor as there are in the boating world. Probably because the prices are much less than boats. Dave

Does Consumer Cellular include a hot spot?

I’m in the process of retiring… seems like it would be easier to keep working! AARP made me aware of Consumer Cellular and it to seems like a good deal. We need AT&T towers because it’s all that works at home, but we also need hotspots on our phones. Does Consumer Cellular include hit spots? Dave

RE: Why no ignitor on RV stove?

Are you sure you don’t push one of the knobs down to activate the igniter? One of them would have a little lightening bolt on it. Dave

RE: Absorption fridge 2 way vs 3 way

I would guess that these will be a bit more expensive than the classic 120V/propane options. . I posed this question earlier. I couldn’t see a noticeable price difference between the 3-way and 2-way models so I would get the 3-way so I have the option of 12V in case I ever needed it. BTW, I am “uncomfortable” traveling with a trailer even though it is designed for doing that. Doesn’t mean there is an issue with trailers, just personal preference, which is why I have always had a motor home. Dave

RE: Absorption fridge 2 way vs 3 way

Is there a substantial cost difference between 2 and 3-way? I use 12V for travel, propane for boondocking and 120 when plugged in. If I didn't prefer to travel without a flame I just wouldn't use 12V and not worry I had a 3-way. Dave

RE: Help understand what's going on with emails

Agreed. Looks like a photo, possibly with a link, that your email carrier has decided is spam and has rendered it innocuous. Dave

RE: DIRECTV Real or Not

this is email address it came from.. reply@message.att-mail.com Coincidentally I was the lead architect and development lead for the upgrade of AT&T’s internal email system. That was in the 90’s but we never used att-mail.com and this is the first time I’ve seen it. Not saying it’s fake, just use caution in case someone has obtained a mailing list. Dave
