RE: refrig

Do you have a 12 volt battery and if you do, does it hold a charge. Without a charged battery you will not have brakes if you lose connection with your tow vehicle. Your battery also is the igniter for your fridge without a charged battery you cannot use your fridge on gas.

RE: Extended Warranty: Why do I need it?

If you have more money than ability and time it might and I say might, be worth the money. Never bought one, never will.

RE: 50 amp TT with generator

Quite possible your EMS would not allow your genny to power your trailer.

RE: Propane tank level monitor

Fulltimers first year 2010-11 volunteering in north Florida, first year winter RVing. No snow no icey roads Volunteer next to us filled us in on how to make the most of our rv's abilities to keep us comfortable. Nothing better than keeping one tank closed. Nothing better than having both tanks open on nights the weather bunny predicts freezing temps. If tank one goes dry tank #two kicks in to keep you warm, unless thats your SO's job. So its no different than taking the dog for his morning walk If the changer shows your on tank two your on a trip to the refill station.

RE: Carbon monoxide deaths possibly from generator

Not alot of information on actual cause of deaths, yes generator related. Unfortunate that folks don't take the hazard of engin exhaust seriously.

RE: AT&T anounces truly unlimited wireless data plan

I have a now Consumer Cellular under AT&T but can't recall all the different names it has been since 1993 at least three previous to the how AT&T. , When we went fulltime we ported our home number to Verizon and I kept the"AT&T number. We have been in areas where AT&T out preformed Verizon. I switched from AT&T to Consumers Cellular because it was costing me $50 A month and not getting much use and got the same service for2/3 the cost plus Data.

RE: This may not be good news for full timers

As a member of a private invite page I see several 2020 top of the line 5ers up for sale already. These are rigs from "didn't have a clue" newbies that thought RV life was for them. It's amazing the total lack of knowledge they had yet were getting into RVing. It would be like me that saw oceans of amber waves of grain but never saw the ocean blue, going out purchasing a yacht to sailaround the world.

RE: Can you fulltime on $2000.00 per month

It definitely is possible. Debt free to start. Medicare and or VA healthcare. We volunteer eight months a year, travel four, two in the Spring two in the Fall. Use our America Interagency Senior pass for camping during those travel periods. We also use free and cheap campground app for low price or free camping while traveling. Volunteering is the way to success for us, no camping fees for eight months. Now some vol camp sites are no more than a gravel FHU site in the maintenance area but others might be a shaded spot FHU overlooking a lake that comes with a stipend of $10-15 per day worked. Work required varies, we have done as little as 13 hrs per person for couples, for singles that was 26 hrs. Usually though a single works 3/4, 32 of a couples 48. We have been fee takers, camphosts, roving interpreters, maintenance care, Visitors Center staff. We have volunteered from Florida to Alaska, New Jersey to Oregon and more than a half dozen in between. If you don't cross the country as much as we have your costs could be less. Fulltime for 11 years.
