RE: Filling the water tank at home

I don't know, but at a campground where we hosted, the lake water had to be tested weekly for us to let swimmers in the water at the beaches.

RE: SPAM-alama-dingdong

We always have a can of Spam in the rv. We are often out many miles from anything and if there is nothing to make a sandwich with, that is it. We eat it cold and hot. Fried with melted cheese on toast - yum.

RE: weak Cell Signal

We have stand alone mobile internet service and have internet almost everywhere. There are different coverage areas for data vs. cell. Most carriers have charts for each. We don't rely on cell service for that reason.

RE: Convection oven exhaust?

You will appreciate all that warm air if it gets cool outside. I just avoid using the convection when it's hot out. Use it all the time when it's cold. I don't think the convection ovens are ever vented outside. They work by circulating hot air. They wouldn't want that mixing with outside air coming in a vent. It would make temperature regulation a problem.

RE: Cleaning a very dirty awning

I just close the slides. The awning then lays on the side of the rv.

RE: Driving people to boondock by calling themselves a "Resort"

We avoid the "resort" type places and stay at real campground for much less with full hookups, pull thrus, sometimes pools, laundry, clubhouse etc. If people keep paying, they will keep raising the price. We spend the winter overlooking a golf course, cement pad, full hookup , electric included and the senior rate is $78 week. Small towns with these type of prices are so much better than the tourist traps.

RE: Cats in a TT

If you are ever in an accident, that trailer will disintegrate on impact. They do not hold up well at all. No RV does. There is much more protection from harm in the truck with you as well as heat or air whichever is needed. There are different types of carriers, maybe another type would work better for in the truck.

RE: Floor Protection Questions

First off I wouldn't keep a puppy in a crate for months until it's housetrained. It does take several months for some to be reliably trained. We had hardwood floors and toenails were not a problem except for large heavier dogs. We always rescued and the 1st was a 9 yr old puppy mill dog who had never been in a house. We kept her in the kitchen at night with a bed etc on an easy to clean floor. The rest of the time she was in or out with us and always near us. We took her to the same place outside time after time and told her to go potty. Once we got her to go a couple of times she started understanding what we wanted. Often at first so we could catch her going outside and praise her and give treats. It only took a couple months to reliably train her. She was trained with love , praise and treats and never harshly scolded if there was an accident.

RE: domicile confused

What we did was sign up for the mail forwarding service and changed our address on everything so it started going there. A couple months later we actually went to the state, got the vehicle titles transferred and registered, got our drivers license, changed our insurances to that state, set up banking, registered to vote. It then became our legal domicile/residence and we were given at street address to use at that time for things that require a street address. We did it in the middle of the year and filed our taxes as residents of out old state for part of the year and non-resident the rest of the year. Our new state does not have a state tax. The federal was filed using the new domicile address. The tax part officially documented our move from our old state to the new. We have since filed for our social security and medicare using that same address with no problems.

RE: Cost of RVing

We have been full-time for 11 years and have never paid over $38.00 for a night of camping with our motorhome. We use Passport America for 50% discounts, have used the Good Sam discount, stay in Corp of Engineer parks, county, city parks and smaller mom & pop campgrounds. We seldom park at a Walmart and have never parked at a truck stop. There are plenty of less expensive places. Of course rates would be higher for a vacation to a special place, but I'm not on vacation. We have full-hookups 99% of the time.

RE: Adding travel time to Google maps

We use x-ways only when necessary so go thru small towns. We figure an average of 45 miles per hour and that figure also allows for a brief breaks to walk around a bit ( 10 min) and a half hour lunch period. Many US highways are divided 4 lane with a lot less traffic, so that's our choice when possible.

RE: Rv Park with Pine trees

How about the Piney Forest in Texas

RE: Refrigerator temp

Did you check the door seals on these new Dometic refrigerators - the dollar bill test. Just defective or poorly installed door seals or door alignment can affect the temperature more than you would think.

RE: water heater works fine - IF- I leave door open

Our friends have the same problem on their trailer. Even a brand new ( when they had to replace theirs) with all kinds of air mixture adjustment tries, just will not run with the door closed.

RE: Microwave replacement options

Microwave/Convection model is what I have. If you purchase one, make sure it vents out the front and also that is is shimmed out far enough from the rear, that the very hot air does not exhaust directly on cabinet handle above. I know someone who didn't and those handles above cannot be touched. The wood of the cabinets is also drying out from being exposed to that extreme hot air all the time. A well known rv repair facility was responsible for improperly installing this.

RE: Skinny cat

Skinny old cats: Why some senior cats lose weight. What's going on? Well-recognized causes of weight loss in old cats include chronic renal disease, diabetes mellitus, hyperthyroidism, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, and dental problems, to name a few.

RE: voting and driver license issues with full time

We have no problem using a PMB for banking, investments, taxes, social security and medicare, insurance etc. We have never had anyone refuse to accept the address. We change PMB to Apt # . It's been 10 years and not a problem. ( PS - Some mail services provide a street address without a PMB that can be used when needed if a situation does happen). PS - someone mentioned Good Sam and Crestview FL -- maybe ? I do know that Passport America provides a full-timers mail service and their address is Crestview FL.

Most cell phone providers also have a stand alone mobile device (router) for wifi. We have ours powered by 12V and always have internet available. We use this because we are able to pickup internet in places that cell phone do not work. The coverage maps for cell and data are different. 10 years on the road and there has never been a place we did not have wifi. No extra boosters or antennas needed.

RE: how do you follow weather on the road

I use my laptop and ask for local weather for whatever town we are at and for the one we are headed to. If I need a couple days out, I look at the 7 day, and even sometimes use the monthly when planning. is the most helpful to me. For current extreme weather we have a weather radio that automatically logs us into the county we are in with NOAA reports.

RE: GFCI not cooperating with me

When ours wouldn't reset, it was worn out and had to be replaced. New one worked fine.
