RE: North Myrtle Beach to Nashville, TN

I make this run a lot and I think you have it right. The 501 is THE way to miss all the little towns/speedtraps. Its barely used and a very pleasant drive imo. I'd let timing tell me where to spend the night. you Do Not want to go thru Asheville or Knoxville during rush hour.

RE: 4 season camping

The brands you looked at are likely best choices for her intended use...Jerry I've never owned a 4 season RV, but my lengthy research into them tells me Jerry is right. fwiw, of course. Let us know what she gets and what she thinks of it after a winter of use!

RE: I shopped for a new TT today

Interesting. Quality isn't a word I would use for a Rockwood based on my past ownership. Maybe I should look at the newer stuff. ((not complaining about Rockwood here- we really enjoyed the one we had. Great floor plan. It just wasn't Quality by any stretch of the term. I'd term it Adequate.))

RE: Credit Card apps

Another step to not carrying any wallet. I look forward to it.How would you carry your Medicare ID card? Driver's license? Cash for tips? Library card? I hate the idea of having to carry a phone everywhere. Too bulky, too fragile, I can drop my wallet with no issues. I use an online banking app since my checking account bank no longer has a branch near us, so I can make deposits using my phone. Don't know of any other real benefits to a banking app. I have pictures of my critical cards on my phone. If I was worried about losing my phone, I'd keep the pics in an online secure storage area and just access them as needed. I hear you re phone size. I miss my old flip phone, but I do like the new phone's camera and ability to hit the internet. Honestly tho, my phone is smaller than my wallet when you look at weight, thickness and volume. (my wallet is one that is lined to prevent remote reading of my CCs). 2oldman: I am 100% with you on medical folks needing to get out of the 50s and come on into the current century!

RE: Credit Card apps

As with all apps you need to see what permissions it requires and what information it wants you to share.... Dave That's SOOOO important. Make sure the app isn't just a data mining operation (with your data being the payoff) in exchange for its use. I am absolutely Amazed at the permissions that most app users agree to. That said, I bet your bank app is fine (since banks already know everything about you ;)! ). But read the permissions anyway.

RE: Trouble with California

I think we have established The Answer. An ag inspection is voluntary(per law cited above) and the ag inspector has the legal authority to deny you entry to the state at his whim. If that happens, you can: 1) turn around and spend your tourista dollars elsewhere; or 2) go find another, less traveled road into CA. There are other options, of course, like showing your rear and being mouthy. Cant say I recommend those- the more you talk, the worse it potentially gets both from a self incrimination and pi ssing off the officer points of view. My advice is to Politely but Firmly refuse a search if you so choose. Don't argue, don't debate, don't whine.

RE: Best Route through the Smokies

I40. Period. Lived in that area most of my life and spent untold hours on all those roads. Just watch for the semiyearly rockslide that narrows the interstate down to 1 lane for a month or so.

RE: New to us question

Did you ask these questions of the person who sold it to you? That would be my first move.

RE: Is Socializing a Dying Thing in the RV Community?

If you don't socialize at all, you are missing out on knowledge of some places to visit that you wouldn't otherwise ever hear of. I cant begin to cite how many tips I have received from camping 'strangers' of places to camp or otherwise enjoy. If you want to get out of a conversation, just feign your phone going off and say 'Oops, gotta go. See ya!'.

RE: Traveling through the Appalachian Mountains

I40 to Knoxville, I75 to Ohio. Try not to hit Knox at rush hours. Only possibility of a problem (its all good 4 lane) is if theres a rockslide near the TN/NC line. That seems to happen every couple of years.

RE: Trouble with California

When you cross a border. be it international or state to state. The state or country you are entering has the right to inspect. No warrant needed. Same for crossing the Hoover Dam I might add and some other locations. Been that way a long long time. Not a problem for me. Unless you are carrying counter banned goods it should not be an issue for anyone. Very good reasons for the inspections. No, Hoover Dam is different. Its considered something like a critical infrastructure site by Homeland Security or something. And that's understandable imo.

RE: POPS RV (broker) - Feedback?

Give him your phone number and the price your willing to pay (out the door) and tell him to call you back when the seller will accept your offer - then you will submit the required paperwork, down payment, etc. As long as you are holding the bag with "all" the money in it, you have all the power. Everyone else wants your money bag - don't give it to them until you get the assurance you need.^^^This.^^^ If they sniff a sale, you WILL hear from them. If you don't hear back, then you have the answer you are looking for.

RE: good Sam VS AARP.

there’s no chance we’d give one red cent for anything to AARP. reasons are totally political which i will not detail. suffice it to say IMO they do not have the well being of the typical senior in mind... ^^^This.^^^ And a big +1 on AAA- they are better than most from what I have found. And don't forget vet/first responder discounts that many give. You just gotta ask. Passport America is good for a couple of days here that there- depends on how you travel. We get our annual cost back and more in a single trip.

RE: Our annual Quartzite trip and more...

Have fun and take lots of pics for us!

RE: Bushfires and Caravans

Any way we can quickly get political posts with ZERO bearing on RVing deleted? Some people seem to post while intoxicated a lot.

RE: 1st trailer... septic hookup questions

As you are in OK, don't forget to insulate your hose.

RE: Prescriptions while on the road?

I just get a years worth at a time when I am back in the area my primary physician is located. That obviously wont work for some folks (med types, insurance variations, etc) but it may be worth talking to your Dr and insurance company about.

RE: China shipping

LOL, I've bought stuff that arrived in 4 or 5 days, or 4 or 5 weeks, and once in about 3 months. That's my experience also. I do a fair amount of racing drone parts orders from several companies in china and its luck of the draw as best as I can tell. (and before anyone rides my rear about where I buy stuff, ALL drone parts are Chinese made even from the US stores)

RE: Warranty coverage

The best response I ever heard was by a poster here last year. It was like: "send me the money and then call me anytime and i'll tell you why your claim isn't covered under the warranty". Yep, that's the way rv warranties work. (and if you are the poster I am quoting, please claim the credit- I still chuckle about that post)

RE: Free Streaming on Android

As with any app, be sure of the conditions that you are agreeing to. ie, what personal information you are granting them access to. Most of the time 'Free' means your information is the payment. Nothing wrong with that as long as you understand everything upfront.
