RE: Neighbors Wouldn’t Help

There are usually county commissions on aging that have volunteers who will driver seniors to and from doctor appointments. The volunteers are paid mileage from the county funds for this program. They also have volunteer companions who can visit once per week and take you to get your hair done, go to the bank, grocery store, or just sit and play a board game, read you a book etc. My understanding is that these are federally funded programs so should be available in every state.

RE: 100 days till snowbirding........ maybe not

We are full-time, so will be heading south. We will make reservations, pay online or by phone for our site and have our site # when we drive in. No contact necessary. Heading for a small town that has had 238 cases in the county. We don't have to be within 6' of anyone and practice safety when pumping gas or grocery shopping. Life will be about the same as it is here in MI for the summer. The only things that would change where we go is winter weather predictions, or states closing their borders, but we have to go somewhere warmer. Not spending winter in MI where we are for the summer.

RE: VIN Location on 2000 Damon Intruder, F53

You could also check the inside of driver/passenger doors if you have them. The standard place would be if you look from the outside thru the windshield, there should be a metal plate with the VIN # embedded into the dash. Hard to see from the inside - only readable from the outside looking in. This would be on the drivers side in the corner.

RE: Insurance declared value of used motor home

Each state may be a little different and if multiple vehicles are insured under the same policy number in TX, that is not the norm. Usually, each vehicle or rv has it's own policy. After all, each has it's own value. If ACV will not exceed the cost price new, then that means that you can be paid up to the amount based on the condition of your particular coach. You take care of yours it's going to be worth more than someone with the same coach who does not. The ACV up to retail allows for a higher payment to you based on your coach's condition and mileage.

RE: Snow Birds ??

We are full-time and currently in MI. We will not be spending the winter here, so south it is. We have not decided where yet, but spent last winter and until June in TX waiting for our seasonal campground in MI to open so we could come. We were in a small community that as of June 1st had only 1 case in the county. Felt pretty safe there. We will not be going to any large park or crowded areas.

RE: Co alarm

High humidity can make them go off. Have had it happen a couple of times.

RE: Black Tank Roof Vent and Bathroom Roof Vent Too Close?

Are you sure it's not coming from the air admittance valve under the bathroom sink? They do wear out and will allow tank fumes into the rv. The grey smells as bad as any black. They are usually 2 or 3 of them in your plumbing. About $25 at any big box stores. Try that first.

RE: US 60

US60 from I-57/55 area to Popular Bluff MO is good.

RE: Preference for one night camping

We mostly travel US highways and state roads. We prefer quiet and if we do stop at a Walmart, it is one in a small town without a lot of highway traffic. We are in campgrounds 90% of the time and we would travel a few miles for a nicer experience.

RE: Required signing waiver of responsibilty

New waiver perhaps to cover themselves if you should contract covid19 while staying there. A camper from out of state that probably brought the virus with them, has now been hospitalized. They may have infected others here ??? Could someone try to sue the campground if they get sick ?? Some would try.

RE: Any Alabama full-timers?

Alabama has a state tax. I'd use one the the states friendly to full-timers. TX, FL and SD. No state taxes.

RE: RV Printer

We had a printer in the RV, but unless you print on a regular basis, you will find that your ink cartridge has dried out every time you try to use it. Not worth a new cartridge each time. Just go to the library to print something.

RE: Hey Michigan people, title and registration question

As full-timers traveling, I can tell you that MI does not have the worst roads. There are many places with bads roads.

RE: Is camping Fun Anymore

Didn't notice that near as much at the Corp of Engineer parks we have been too.

RE: Where to find

If you mean for working at campgrounds, Workamper News is one you subscribe to, google searches will find many pages for you. The one I like the best is a free newsletter at work-for-rvers-and-campers. Free listing every day. Just sign up and you receive the listings by state in your e-mail.

RE: Driving in windy conditions

We don't drive if sustained winds are above 20 as there are higher gusts that usually come with that. The wind speed shown is sustained wind, not how high a gust can be.

RE: Class A Roadside Assistance

We are full-time and have coachnet. Pay attention to the plans for any company as many indicate "towable" only coverage. It would not apply to a "motorized" rv. Coachnet does have 2 separate plans based on that as well as many of the others. We have never needed to use our plan - thank goodness.

RE: Disappointing test drive

We have an older F53 and the cheap handling fix along with a steering stabalizer made a world of difference. Don't know if the fix can be done on newer ones or not. There was also a big difference between unloaded and loaded.

RE: Snow Birds ??

We will go south, probably back to TX. We can quarantine in a warmer place than MI where we are currently under social distancing, some businesses still closed and masks inside buildings. Of course we have the non believers here too so the cases are going up again. 1 bar in Lansing now has 85 confirmed cases from 1 night of business.
