Peggy and I are getting ready to become full-time. We drive to FL (from VT) to pick up our Class A motorhome. Four years ago we had a DISH Hopper and it was a pain in the neck. The Tiffin Coach has a mounted satellite dish and I think the previous owner used DIRECT TV as the provider and he told me he chose that service because that is what he has in his house. He did say, he would probably switch to DISH . So I have two questions: (1) what service have you and do you use (e.g. DISH or DIRECT) and do you recommend that I buy a tripod and a second DISH. We are both TV-junkies, but painfully recall what a PIA this is. Frankly I don't look forward to the hassle. Further, don't most RV resorts and campgrounds have CATV?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
Well I did it. Purchased a 94 Fleetwood Tioga. It's in very good shape, and I got a pretty good deal. Now there's many, many things to do, including getting insurance.
Where does one go to purchase insurance for an rv? One who currently has no insurance whatsoever.
Yeah me neither....in Texas at least, you can downgrade an interstate Class-A CDL to an intrastate Class-A CDL.
It is called Category 4: Excepted Intrastate.
You will keep most of the endorsements you have, but may lose hazmat if you have that one.
I am actually 'grandfathered in' on the medical. I know it sounds odd... but it is true, that a 61 year old (me) can now actually drive a CMV bus or truck IN TEXAS for the next 5 years legally with NO medical exam. But absolutely true.
Of course this license means I can drive any size or type of RV in Texas, and that ability extends to the other states.
We had that problem with the DW's mother. Driver License renewal solved that when she could not pass the vision test. Every state is different though on renewals for the elderly. Licence renewal by state
