  1. Audio system recommendation

    I suggest an AV receiver like the Marantz NR1508. It has 5 HDMI 4K inputs, 50W per channel, built in WiFi and AirPlay, plus it's one of the shortest AV receivers. I have an Marantz in my AV system. I also suggest some "bookshelf" speakers like this Polk system. Finally, adequate ventilation courtesy of Cooler Guys. BTW, it's almost impossible now to find and integrated system that Chad mentioned with any HDMI inputs which is very, very limiting.
  2. Not quite that bad, OldMan. If you really believe it's that bad at RV parks, then stick to bottle water because no Camco filter would make that water safe. On the other hand . . . Like lockmup68, I also suggest a multi-stage water filtering approach. In my water filter system, incoming water goes through a sediment filter, carbon filter, water softener, and a UV filter before the water enters my RV's tank. After that, I use an under-the-sink RO (Reverse Osmosis) filter for drinking water. Some more suggestions: If your filters will not be used outside your RV, then use clear filter cartridges like this. Actually seeing the filters can prevent clogs and algae blooms. Besides the RV Water Filter Store, I'd also suggest www.freshwatersystems.com, www.h2odistributors.com, and www.filtersfast.com. Also, filter replacement just use Google to find the lowest price.
  3. Like a system from Mobile Internet Satellite.
  4. RV Service in Phoenix Area

    Need a recommendation for my yearly Class A diesel pusher servicing in the Phoenix area.
  5. Something different. Did you look at the large cartridge filter link?
  6. I carry a spare pump. While they might be repairable, I'd rather attempt repair after my spare is installed. No. I replaced my ShurFlo (which is now my spare) with an AquaJet -- no need for accumulator. I use large cartridge filters (A = regulator, B = Sediment filter, C = Carbon filter, D = water softener, E = Flow meter. F = UV filter). If you don't have the room, look into an under-the-sink RO (Reverse Osmosis) system. However, I don't recommend inline filters. For one, you can't see what's going on inside. My clear cartridges allowed me to discover an algae bloom before it clogged my system.
  7. I never scroll that far
  8. This has absolutely nothing to do with RVing besides the fact both are fun -- Falcon Heavy Liftoff (30 min in). For those of you who remember the Apollo launches with the Saturn V, this should bring back memories. SpaceX Falcon Heavy vs Other Massive Rockets
  9. Here you go (from www.rv.net)
  10. Domicile is very confusing to me

    Your "driving in snow" comment made me think that you believe as a full timer you actually have to live in your new domicile state. You thought if you selected SD, then you would have to hang around SD a lot -- like in Winter. You don't. I would guess that most full timers who choose SD, TX, or FL as domiciles have no real intention of living (in a conventional sense) in any of these states. In fact many may intend to spend as little time as possible. This is the full timer's "dirty little secret". Sometimes it's easy to spot on these forums . . . as when someone says they are "moving" (their quotes) to another state to get better healthcare or something else. They have no intention of actually moving or living there. They'll just do the minimum to change domicile and get the particular advantages of that state. Be careful. What makes SD, TX, and FL attractive domicile choices is that each has no state taxes, makes it relatively easy for full time RVers, and is supported by the Escapees Mail Forwarding service.
  11. Help Not sure how to proceed

    Let's make this more general and say for those under 65, SD and TX are not the places to domicile.
  12. Best RV insurance for full-time

    I received a quote from FMCA RV Insurance several months ago that was much cheaper than the policies I got through Miller. Next month I'll compare both agencies quotes for my yearly update.
