    • "The Billing Address counts as t sets the sales tax for that address." I've found it's the service address that determines the sales tax.  We are full timers, and over the past few months have been in several states.  I called DISH to ask about the various sales taxes being charged, when there should be none as our billing address is Florida where no sales tax is charged.  The account rep didn't know, and put me on hold while he checked with someone.  He came back on the phone and told me it is the service address that determines the tax rate.  During the times that I was charged a sales tax, my service addresses were mostly in the state where the tax was assessed for most or all of the billing period.
    • Florida isn't the only state that offers health insurance plans with nationwide coverage.  As mentioned upthread, Blue Cross in Michigan has a PPO plan.  And I know that Blue Cross offers a PPO plan in Maryland that has a nationwide network.   That is not health insurance.  It's an indemnity plan.  They are not the same thing, and don't even consider an indemnity plan as a substitute for health insurance unless you really understand what it is.
    • Maybe they finally figured it out....................
    • They are definitely a lot of fun.  If you go anywhere near my place on your trip home, you will have to stop in so we can go riding.  There is an OHV park not too far from me.
    • Another view is that you get weighed at a CAT scale when traveling and keep the receipt handy, it's dated. Done periodically won't break the bank at $11 so update when necessary. The scenario that you have presented was using the ratings and your actual traveling weights could be well below the ratings that you listed above. Perhaps your potential trailer has a dry weight in the specs as well that can be used in conjunction with the GVWR. Getting your truck weighed with either you alone or with your other half as well, and with typical truck stuff on board, can tell you what you have to work with. Everyone has their own version of what's tolerable or desired, and this also has much to do with traveling style & destinations, but a maximum of 50% of the truck's capability (gasser) is my target knowing that I'll stray a little either side of that.
