  1. Apparently it didn't take long- looks like they bought something already 😀
  2. Congrats on the house building, Jeff! Gonna have an RV spot for us visitors? Haha We do like having a place to keep all the toys
  3. x 2. Most of the mail we DO get is something we need forwarded, like vehicle tags. We only have our mail forwarded about every 6 weeks or so. Sometimes more, after dr. Appointments (-although our new dr. Is paperless, with a portal) and at tax time. After so many years on the road, you learn to anticipate what you will get for mail. For instance, I don't wait for the renewal notice on registrations, I know when they renew, so I just go online and renew it. No need to pay someone to scan it or wharever.
  4. Don't know of a kennel, but we had someone in the RV park come to our rig to take care of our cat. Would that work?
  5. We have used several companies over the years. I think many of them will write a rider. For the past few years we have been dealing with Miller Insurance, and the policy is with Nationwide (Allied). We are no longer fulltimers so have nothing in storage anymore but we still insure the rig for fulltime since we use it so much of the year.
  6. Our insurance for our stuff that was in storage was a rider on our full-time RVer policy.. very inexpensive- but also required by the storage facility. We could get our own policy or pay big bucks for their miniscule policy.
  7. Also, if you do facebook there is a DRV owners page, pretty active and frequented by Rolling Retreats and occasionally someone from DRV. DRV Suites Owners Group (Doubletree RV) DRV owners page
  8. Hey freddie, we were happy that we got to spend a little while with the two of you on your way through Deming- wish we had known we were parked within spittin distance a little sooner! Glad you two are gonna take it easy this summer. Time to relax!! Sue
  9. Just to add a few points- with a truck and 5th wheel, you won't usually need to fill up while towing. Over the years we have had enough issues that we avoid it if at all possible. Since we, like Barbara, try to stick to the 2-2-2 rule, its not that difficult. I also have an ipad, and anytime we DO have to fuel up while towing, I use google maps to thoroughly investigate our options before hand. Allstays is an incredibly good app and I wouldn't be without it. We gave up AAA when they told us they wouldnt tow our truck because its too big (AAA has different rules in different areas) Dentists: although not mentioned, bring a thumb drive to any dentist appointments. I ask that they copy all x-rays to my thumb drive so I will have them down the road and won't have to pay for them again. If they won't put them on a flash drive (some offices are nervous about viruses) have them email them to you.
  10. Well, if you are gonna be in the heat in a TT, I would knock off the one with only one AC. If you are going to be stationary, then weight isnt' really an issue, although the word "lite" in the description, to me, reads : very little insulation etc. so in some ways heavier is better. I've never had a TT so not sure about reliability of any of the above.
  11. On my apple phone I have had it refuse to do an update to an app unless I connect to wi-fi, if its a large update. Then I have to trick it, by connecting to my hot spot to override it. Frustrating.
  12. If we can actually free ourselves up from family obligations, it is our intent to head to the PNW this summer, at some point. My ideal plan would be to loop around from east to west, maybe Idaho up to Washington and then south or if need be, up thru northern CA up to WA and then back south. fingers crossed that we get to go at all. The last 11 months we have been running from crisis to crisis, ugh. In some ways I just want to stay home and veg out but I know as soon as the temps hit 110, I will get hitch itch.
  13. Big Bend Resort and Adventures is another option for longer term. Its in Study Butte, and is good access to the park. and there is decent cell service.
  14. When we took our Keystone product back to the factory to have work done on it, it was a challenge that we were fulltimers. We just told them we use it a lot but they wanted us to leave it there and come back for it when the work was done. We really had to push without telling them that we lived in it, which they clearly didn't want to hear. I am not sure if they would have voided our warranty but the issues were so severe, they actually took it back, so I didnt' want to test it.
  15. we originally had separate insurance for our storage unit (the storage facility required insurance) and later changed it to a rider policy on our full timers policy. it was much cheaper that way.
