RE: Zoning that restricts RV use on your own land

It's about Taxes, Taxes, Taxes. If your living in a structure, notice I said structure, they can Tax it, they don't get any Taxes from your RV.

RE: Laminate floor in 5th wheel

RE: 2017 F-450

Humm.. the one I saw them test on that Fast Lane Truck youtube channel had a MSRP of around $80k... Sure, it was a Platinum.. I don't need or want a truck that big or fancy.. I'll never get a trailer that requires that kind of rig, nor want one.. I'm just a long weekend camper, so to me, what I have now is more than enough.. Each to their own of course. Everyone "camps" to their own tune.. Good luck! Mitch It's a little different when your towing your home and everything you own. I got by with a 7x7 tent, a sleeping bag, and a coleman stove and lantern for 30 years but that was then.

RE: Route around Nashville

Hit it after morning rush hour and Bailey Parkway should be a breeze.

RE: yukon to alaska border crossing time

Depends on traffic and time of day. When we entered AK early in the morning, spent the night in Beaver Creek drove right up, the usual questions, a few pleasantries and on to Tok. Return trip we spent night in Tok quite a lineup southbound in mid August maybe 20 vehicles in line.

RE: Help with water leak.

Faucet is installed on the sink top before top is installed on the vanity, then plumbing connections are made. Disconnect plumbing connections pull top repair or replace leaky faucet, reinstall top and reconnect plumbing.

RE: Talking in person to RV snowbirds...where do I find any

I guess we're snowbirds, 6 years full-timeing, we've never paid for a winter campsite down South. 4 years in Florida and 2 in Texas, volunteering. Sure everyone wants warm winter, but warm to one is hot or cold to another. Of the 6 winters we stayed down south one was not nice but compared to Northern Illinois it was a winner. You will want to check out www.volunteer.gov you don't want to wait till you expect to go. We're always 9 months to a year out in applying for volunteering positions and they are usually posted shortly after the season ends. All of the federal agencies post openings but not all openings are posted. For state parks go to there home page and look for "volunteer" or "get involved ". Sometimes these are difficult to find but a search box or site index will also lead you to their volunteer page. In Florida almost everyone wants to be in the warm southern part of the state so you want to look at the North half of the state. Our first winter was at Gold Head Branch state park between Gainesville and Jacksonville as camphosts. We did have several nights in the upper 20s in January but never needed more than a light jacket during the day. Hope this helps with your planning. We don't mind in fact we enjoy volunteering and it stretchs the retirement income and keeps us active.

RE: Heavy Black Tank Smell

More water. 1-2 gallons is never enough in a decent size black tank. I always fill a 5 gallon bucket to prime my black tank after dumping.

RE: Dometic fridge

You should be able to easily access the burner, remove access door.. and a couple of sheet metal screws so you can remove the shields. It's a good idea (IMO) to get a visual on the flame every year or so.. There are websites out there that have pictures of what a good flame on a fridge should look like. It may be working, but not working optimally. Do this and you will know for sure. If the check light is on no propane, however if your anal remove the vent panel and place your hand on the vent stack if warmer than ambient it's working. I have remote thermometers in fridge, freezer, basement and main read out near my usual relaxing chair, always know what is happening.

RE: Mircrosoft Account

Make sure your anti virus is up to date and don't worry about it.

RE: Will work for Free :)

For the OP you may want to contact garyhaupt a Canadian member of the forum who has jumped the hurdles of volunteering legally in the US if I recall his posts from a few years back. I'm not familiar with BLM use requirements but I assume they apply to non-residents as well so for very few dollars one can camp in the beautiful southwest for minimal cost. May try it myself next winter.

RE: We got bees nesting in undercarriage.

Sounds like you have a wasp/yellow jacket nest. Home Depot - wasp and yellow jacket spray into the entry hole...soak it. Best to do in the last evening or night when most of the colony is home. Even better if you can peel back the coroplast and blast the nest directly with the spray. The seal the hole. Don't seal the hole until the nest has been eliminated my neighbor did that and the bees found a new entrance/exit through the trailer, not fun having bees filling up your living quarters.

RE: Noob full timer needs HELP!! Pinbox can't be adjusted?

The one thing I found out about fulltiming is you either be handy or wealthy.
