    • 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.
    • I have been reading on the forums about DirecTv having a problem changing ones service address for local channels. I just got back to Phoenix AZ for the winter. Made one call and then 5 minuets later was up and runnng with local Phoenix channels. 
    • I have Geico using the Escapees So Dakota address and they were able to write an umbrella policy for me which also covers my Jeep, and Harley. Maybe you should consider the SD address rather than the TX address. 
    • I almost never go to WalMart. I have been using Cabellas a lot lately. Their store in Sidney NE (their HQ) has a campground or you can stay one night in the lot. Billings MT store has RV parking wth electric hook up and a dump station But you can only stay one night. Omaha NE store has RV spaces out back, no hookup and no dump station, one night stay. Way to go Cabellas. 
    • If I were the manager or district manager of that store with the described problems and my supers wouldn't let me put up and enforce no parking signs , you can bet your toes I'd go to the city , one way or another , and request that they take care of the vagrant problem .
