RE: Looking for campsite in southwest usa

If you dont want Texas, How about Arkansas, land only is available in small communities near, or sometimes on lakes. An example Lot I have no idea what restrictions may exist on this, but in Virginia, where I live, a lot of folks buy a lot in a lakeside community, put in well and septic, and then just use a camper on the site. I know this is common in Texas, and Ok as well. Its all a matter of deed restrictions and local guvmints with overactive hormones, find a realistic one, and they can be golden for something like you mentioned.

RE: Battery Life

IF you are going to have to replace the batteries,,,,, Go to Sams club, Costco, Batteries + or wherever to get 2 six volt golf cart batteries instead of the standard rv/marine batteries, cost wont be but about $20 more, and they will give you twice as much usable power before you start damaging them from over draining, and should last longer. NOTE you do have to change how they are wired when you install them. Come back here and guidance will be given.

RE: surge protector and water filters

For the water filter, the basic blue Camco that Helmart sells is all we carry, but we do use a filter pitcher in the fridge for drinking water. For the power, the Progressive Dynamics seem to be the standard most folks go by, myself I bought a Hughes because we travel with a dog, and my hope was that because the unit would "reset" itself if voltage returned to normal levels, it would be safer for our Aussum Shepherd.

RE: Ev charging in camps expectation of availability, cost

Love how the ev fans all see it as no big deal, since they arent paying for the upgrades. Maybe a better approach would be a daily "toll" for all ev's on a campsite. $12 a day for your ev to be at a campsite. After all, the added cost is no big deal.

RE: Koala Trailers

Once it's past a year old, mfr support becomes generally non existent. All of the interior appliances/equipment is basically the same across lines, they all use the same stoves, reefers, and water heaters. So look at what you can for build quality, particle board is cheaper than plywood, which is cheaper than hardwood framing etc. A three to five year old Evergreen isnt going to be much different than other similar price point units from the same era.

RE: Winterizing RV

If this is an oddity, why not charge up the batteries, and switch on the furnace for a day or two, with the t'stat set at 45 or so?

RE: Leaving Illinois, going full time.

Then look hard at Escapees, mail forwarding, domicile change assistance, membership gets discounts at some campgrounds including some they own.

RE: Leaving Illinois, going full time.

Since the decision to go, is already made, next considerations,,,,, Domicile, ??Change your licenses and registrations to a state that wont tax and fee you to death. Texas is popular, no state income tax, South Dakota or Florida as well. Mail, shift as much as possible to online banking, and then either use a family member, or a service such as Escapees or Dakota Post. Both will . receive and hold your mail, as well as offering other services. Insurances Both Health, and your rig, as a general comment, IF you are not old enough for mediscare, Florida seems to get the most positive comments for its coverage options, otherwise research all locations and select based on your needs. South Dakota does have one odd positive, no annual inspection on your truck emmissions or otherwise, Texas will allow you 30 days after returning to the state before its required. Other folks will have more to offer, but hopefully this gives you a little food for thought.

RE: taking your RV on a boat down the Mississipi to New Orleans

If they were letting more than six people per barge travel that way, they would be afoul of Coast Guard regs. Vessels having more than six passengers are required to meet a long list of additional regs. This is why small fishing charters are always advertised for 6 or fewer. Additionally, most barges with a solid (non opening) upper deck are bulk liquid carriers, The most common bulk liquid? Oil, or petroleum products with another set of regs including no open flames or sources of ignition. There are some used for non petroleum liquids, molasses, and soybean oil as an example, but even then you still have the 6 passenger max issue.

RE: Have to wonder how this will effect the EV aficionados

Should I find a sarcasm font for the seditious part? The point of the OP was to promote a falsehood. There by stirring dissention thereby spreading misinformation thereby developing a cult resulting in January 6th! Not at all. My point is that the cost savings of ev's is about to evaporate. The states are going to run into more cash shortages as well, and throw road taxes into the grid power pricing structure as well to make up for what was lost as more fossil fuels are shifted away from direct consumption in ICE engines with the associated taxes attached, to electric power which was not contributing to the highway maintenance. YES I know the EV folks will claim they will be paying with their registrations, but consider how much is paid in fuel charges, (think .40 to .60 per gallondepending on where you are) and how expensive your registration will become. No politician will allow anything that doesnt INCREASE their cash haul.

Have to wonder how this will effect the EV aficionados

If the article is correct, the way to make wind and solar cost effective has been decided,,,,, raise the cost of coal and natural gas tenfold. energy article. Plugging in will cost more and the govt will still try to force you to use more. And since all goods and services rely on transportation to move their supplies to your demand, we get the added joy of a nice inflation bounce to cover the added cost to everything else.

RE: Fiberglass roofs on Winnebago Vista

Not suggesting you do it, but there arecoatings made for fiberglass roofs. Dicor I was puzzeled when I saw it on a Vista roof, but it apparently is not uncommon.

RE: What do you do for an address?

Another option is to use a service. Escapees, and services like Dakota Post allow you to see scanned envelopes or shipping labels to determine what you want forwarded to you, as well as various services like DMV transactions. Along with the forwarding of the materials you want sent.

RE: What I am looking for is......

Not a specific park, but if you havent looked before, check any Army Corps of Engineers parks in your region. COE PARKS Thyare usually around reservoirs and other bodies of water.
