  1. I’ve been full time over a month now. Enjoying it so far. I still work though and this is a nice alternative to an apartment. You can find possible dates anywhere but I believe you will have better success outside the RV parks. Mostly what I’ve seen are families and work camping males. At almost 54 and newly single it’s a bit of a challenge but not a surprise. You may need to do the online dating thing as well. You just have to get out and socialize. It’s a little difficult crossing paths with available females. Somewhere out there are compatible females who would love to go out as well. You just have to find them or they find you. I haven’t done an online profile yet. I believe a good attitude is important. Life is a journey and adventure. Best wishes! I’ll have to join the Escapees singles club called SOLOs.
  2. I just called the banks and everything switched over no problem. When you try to do it online sometimes with banks it gives some postal address warning and won't accept. Calling made everything worked out ok. All my investment stuff moved over as well. I just have to change my work address next. Then everything will all be done and dusted.
  3. Thanks RV_ Mine is already done. Ended up being no problem at all. Completely switched everything over and on February 15 I'll be enjoying the life.
  4. You are going to want to start here: http://changingears.com/rv-sec-calc-trailer-weight-tt.shtml
  5. Been really busy with work so I had not followed up until last week. I ended up calling the banks and got it all taken care of over the phone. It ended up not being a big deal.
  6. I've only tried it online so far. Tried again after chatting with Escapees about some alternative ways of entering the information but no success. Have been doing a lot of business travel this week so I've not had time yet to visit personally a bank location. It's not a critical requirement at the moment and in the end I could use a relative's address in another state but it would tidy things up a bit to use my Escapees address for everything. Funny thing is I already have checks with my Escapees address. Should have my voter registration in the next mailing so I'll take that with me as well when I go into a bank. Not complaining or ranting. Just sharing experience and hopefully a positive outcome. Escapees are great and I’ll follow up with them again as well.
  7. Just changing the address on two already established accounts. Everything else has switched just fine.
  8. 225 instead of 222. Everything else the same. I’ve tried entering it a couple of different ways. Will give Escapees a shout tomorrow.
  9. Crank of America and Capital None don't appear to like my Escapees address. I'm guessing call Escapees and ask for advice? I suppose a relative's address could be an alternative. Any recommendations?
  10. The biggest problem with fuel storage right now is ethanol. If you are going have to let a small engine go unused for like 2 years then you are better off with a canned product like Trufuel. It's a good practice I believe to let your generator cycle through a tank at least once every six months to a year.
  11. Premium gas is a bit of a marketing thing. The only difference is higher octane and if your engine doesn't benefit from higher octane according to its design then there's no benefit. Just trying to be helpful. https://www.edmunds.com/fuel-economy/to-save-money-on-gas-stop-buying-premium.html https://www.bellperformance.com/blog/bid/114019/The-Best-Gas-for-Small-Engines-Just-like-butter-Fresh-Is-Best https://www.briggsandstratton.com/na/en_us/support/faqs/browse/fuel-recommendations.html https://powerequipment.honda.com/generators/fuel-recommendations
  12. Thank you Kirk! FYI I'm enjoying getting fitted out and ready for an adventure. I certainly give thanks to all the Escapees and this forum.
  13. Their info and helpfulness is top notch and worth joining, particularly if needing to connect for work.
  14. Have lived in Texas and been a resident for 25 years. I've paid for the mail service and domicile info but have not received it yet to fully review. When I go full-time I believe all I'll really need to do is change my address on everything once I'm set up to go full time. That would be after I complete the necessary Escapees paperwork and get an official Escapees address of course. It may not end up being very complicated. Any experiences to share? Thanks!
  15. Yes I was referring to Technomadia. Thanks a bunch for the info. I'm in the processing of joining your site. I have a company paid Iphone with group data plan but would like to keep my RV data connection separate and create a new mobile method of internet access. Basically I have a home office now with high speed cable internet access. I'll be leaving that behind when I go full time before long. Ideally I'd like to have as close to the same internet functionality and speed as I had with home cable. I realize that may not be possible exactly but it's sort of a goal/objective with the mobile access point. I also have an Ipad 2 w/cellular but use it only with wifi. I bought it used and it has a Verizon sim as well as like a Manage Verizon Account under Cellular Data. I'll go back over the data plans again. I'm probably going to want a lot of data. My gaming is Eve Online.
