    Satellite TV greenhorn

    Thank you to all who have replied. DW and I are leaning real heavily into a sat system and all that goes with it. I guess another question would be is it easier to have qualified techs set up a system or should I (not real electronic-ee savvy) attempt to do this?? Dave

    Satellite TV greenhorn

    Thank you for all of the replies. So much to consider. To narrow it down some would like a system that could accommodate two tvs and could be set for local news an weather where ever we might be, either east or west, north or south. To answer the question about recording we really don't record anything. If we miss a show it will be new to us some other time. Also would like an auto set up but would like get started with a tripod or carry out system to see how it works and if we like sat tv. Thanks Dave

    Satellite TV greenhorn

    1. Carry out and or tripod. 2. What is best for full timers? Read about "pay as you go" but is this option available on both systems? Dave
  4. We have been full timing for six years and have not thought too much about satellite TV until recently. We know next to nothing about it except what I have started to read in this forum. So, what questions should I ask and what type of searches should I do to start gathering information on this subject? Thank you Dave

    Toilet paper...

    We have been using Kirkland (Costco) brand almost six years with never a problem. Also use Sea-Zyme in the black and galley tanks. Seems to help with odors. Dave

    Talked with my agent in early March about possible increases from National General due to the claims from the hurricanes that affected so many people. He said if it goes up more than we would like he would help to find another carrier and try to hold the coverage to what we have. Renewal received in mid March and rig and truck went up $20.00 per month. Satisfied with coverage and agent. Dave

    Polk County Tax Office changes

    I don't know about online registration. The letter stating what I posted was sent in the envelope containing my truck reg/inspect sticker. Just thought it would be usefull for folks who use Livingston/SKP as their legal domicile and do business with Polk County. Dave

    Polk County Tax Office changes

    The letter was sent with my new truck sticker. This applies to Polk County. I posted what the letter said word for word. I don't know the why's or how comes. Something happened at the Polk County tax office.
  12. Received my truck registration/inspection sticker and the Polk county folks in the tax office now require for all transactions you will provide a copy of your Texas DL. Letter says "This includes anyone who is the registered owner of the vehicle as well as the check signer". "Requests without proper documentation will be returned". I'm sure this pertains to registration for all rigs, 5 er's, trailers, etc. Thought I would pass this along as I didn't see any other posts about this. Dave

    Livingston RV Storage

    We are also planning to visit Europe in the spring for a month this trip. We also full time and have no home except the one we drag around. Wintering in a small family owned park in central Texas and plan to keep the rig under shore power in the same site and give set of keys to the family in case of emergency. Tractor will set too with batteries unhooked. Will just pay the freight and have peace of mind while gone. Dave

    Tri-park In Pecos

    What's the deal with Tri-Park in Pecos? No website comes up nor is the park on the park list in th SKP magazine. Has the park gone private and if so why and when? Last reviews were not good and not many options out that way. Dave
