RE: Selling an RV/payment

when you cash the check do not walk out of the bank with all that money. have the bank issue you a cashier's check that you'll take to your bank to deposit. No, I don't want to deal with banks. My question was about cash transaction. Walking out is fine, as soon as the buyer isn't shady. I will not sell to a shady buyer, have pretty good spidey sense about people. Just want to make sure I won't be given fake cash, so won't sell to cash directly one on one. Banks parking lots are pretty safe, and I'd drive around to lose anyone who might be trailing me (I've been around some dangerous places in this world, know the procedure) good luck. i think you're taking on a load of unnecessary risk but I hope this works out for you.

RE: Selling an RV/payment

I will be selling my RV a few months later and need to understand how I can safely receive a payment. I want to sell to a private party. It's going to be selling for 40-45K. Receiving bank wire won't work for me. I will ask buyer to give me cashier's check of a bank that has local, branch, I think. I want to be able to go to the branch in person and cash the check and also first verify that the check is good, before I sign the title over. Had anyone done a sale like this? What are the steps with cashier's check handling to make sure one won't get defrauded? why is a wire txfr no good. very safe. otherwise meet at a branch of the bank the check is drawn from to verify authenticity.

RE: Shore power vs Batter maintainer

unless your converter/charger is a newer 'smart' device that will sense when the batteries are fully charged and will then revert to maintenance or float mode use an external device that will do that.

our AGM's were new when we took delivery in 2015 and they're still chugging along today. good luck with whatever you choose.

RE: Dead...

we liked and used both the sealed maintenance free batteries and, in our last motorhome, AGM batteries. other than keeping the terminals clean there is no maintenance required. https://www.repairsmith.com/blog/agm-vs-lead-acid/#

RE: Flying J RV discount Card

The GS Pilot/Flying J rewards is a Credit Card, no need to add your credit card. Pretty sure you need to be a active GS Member. The discount amounts listed are for Life GS Members with a lesser amount for yearly members. actually, the FJ card is a charge card, not a credit card. unlike a credit card the balance on a charge card must be paid in full each month.

RE: Flying J RV discount Card

do you have an active Good Sam Club membership? Pretty aure the FJ card is linked to the GS member. We're selling our MH and have not renewed our GS membership and our FJ card no longer works.

RE: Facing Prostate Surgery

And, assuming, I don't get another blockage resulting in a catheter change, I think I can keep the current catheter until surgery. Oooh - my husband need a cath for several months; and was told to have it changed every 30 days. He tried to string it along a bit longer (his TURP surgery was about 6 weeks out) - it plugged (always on a Sunday) and we found ourselves in the ER getting it changed. I'll just throw the next bit in for the benefit of anyone facing prostate surgery: apparently my husband also had a UTI. He came home from surgery feeling great; but about 5 or 6 days later, I found him shivering in his chair, wrapped up in a blanket, with a fever. I just said "get in the car - we're going to the hospital" and sure enough, he was in the beginning stages of sepsis. A couple of days of IV antibiotics had him on the mend, and he's been fine ever since :-) I've had several UTIs all because of the huge protate. Cephalexin seems to take care of them but they do come back. My surgery will be 32 or 33-days from the date of the latest catheter but I will check with my doc. I'm sorry your husband went thru sepsis but glad he came thru it. This is my 4th catheter since the end of May. The first three became blocked by blood clots but this one seems fine. As a retired 9-1-1 operator/administrator I'd suggest to anyone a serious or emergency medical issue to call 9-1-1 and have the medics respond rather than drive yourselves to the hospital...but I understand the desire to drive yourselves. Thanks for sharing your experience. It helps.

RE: Facing Prostate Surgery

When I was 69 my prostate showed it had 3 individual cancers growing in it and ofcourse my PSA had elevated the last year but was still not real high. In September of 2010 I had davinci robotic surgery to destroy my prostrate. All 3 cancers were gone and luckily it was caught before any of the 3 cancer growths broke thru the prostate's wall and would spread. It was a piece of cake surgery and recovery until I had gotten a growing infection from the surgery as they had a computer failure with the surgery and must have had some germs gotten into the operating room from the tech getting the computer up and running again. I guess I just drew the short straw!... wow, short straw indeed. very glad it worked out for you. I hope the computer my doc will be using something more sophisticated than Windows 10. :B

RE: Facing Prostate Surgery

Since the last time I posted there's been good news and bad news. The bad news is I had to make yet another trip to the local ER for what I thought I was another block in the catheter...false alarm. The good news is my surgery...the robot assisted simple prostatectomy has been scheduled for July 31st. Later than I had hoped for but much, much sooner than the 8-10 weeks for the HoLEP. Now, it's just a waiting game. I've got to get medical clearance from my PCP, a PSA test and an MRI for thr surgeon. And, assuming, I don't get another blockage resulting in a catheter change, I think I can keep the current catheter until surgery.

RE: Facing Prostate Surgery

Fwiw Some time back had enlarged prostate,probably from siting and driving too long. Used prostate massager during showers,enters from the rear. cleared it in about half a year. Thanks but I am waaaaaay past that or the EuroLift or the TURP.
