    AZ MDT Registration - UPDATE

    We had a similar problem with the AZ DMV folks many years ago. Well two problems, they don't know their jobs and they lie. That said you should be able to register your MDT in AZ with no issues and no commercial driver's license. If you try it in an emissions area (not sure about Yuma but Phoenix is) be prepared to pay what I recall was a high testing fee.
  2. We have many fond memories of folks that have helped us and others that we have helped, something we treasure and always will. Thanks for the kind words.
  3. I'm glad I was able to help others, I was given a lot of assistance that got me started and saved me from many expensive errors and was trying to pass it on.
  4. This is likely to be my last post on this topic but I think it is an important one to end on. The survey below clearly shows that most of the VA workers are no happier with the VA than our veterans are. Their dissatisfaction with corrupt and incompetent management gives us a clear idea of what needs to change in the VA system. I have some hope that it may happen but fighting the civil service old-boys network and patronage system is one tough row to hoe. http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/arizona-investigations/2017/01/04/phoenix-va-hospital-employee-survey/95975966/
  5. Thanks for all the kind thoughts, folks here and the club gave us far more than we got from them and it will always be appreciated.
  6. Trudy and I had a good run but it is time to move on. We came off the road from full-timing about 10 years ago to help raise a grandkid and settled down in Phoenix to do that. We'd always hoped to get back to RV living when he started school but a second grandkid came along and we got another couple years of delay. While that was going on our health deteriorated to the point that we can't really even consider weekend RVing. We aren't going to die any time soon but we both have issues that really limits what we can do. I'll be keeping this forum account but stepping down as a weekend moderator since I won't be visiting as often.

    Rubbing Alcohol in the waste tanks?

    If using liquid antifreeze in the holding tanks you might want to go with concentrate instead of pre-mixed, that would take less volume to get the same level of protection. https://smile.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=concentrate+RV++antifreeze

    Yahoo! Breach

    I don't do much with Yahoo but if they are files and not e-mails there should be a download option, all I have is a Yahoo Groups account there and it offers downloads of files the group has uploaded. You should be able to download attachments to e-mails too, I helped mom save some photos off her account that way a couple years back. For e-mail bodies copy/paste might work but with 400 plus that is going to get old fast. Something I do not know if Yahoo offers is POP mail program access, if they do you can use a mail program like Thunderbird to download all your e-mails to your PC at once. Hopefully a Yahoo expert will have some better info.

    Rubbing Alcohol in the waste tanks?

    Generic Miralax can be fairly cheap in an emergency, ordering the powder/liquid is cheaper if you have time. As Barb suggested don't add too much, just a small amount and add more as you add water. https://smile.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_pg_2?rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Apolyethylene+glycol&page=2&keywords=polyethylene+glycol&ie=UTF8&qid=1481949026&spIA=B00KDOT734,B00RC2FHPW

    Yahoo! Breach

    Leaks like this are why you should always use different passwords for each website. I try to avoid giving them information they don't really need. I also keep track of the secret question for each site and the answer I gave to it. I never give a real answer, First car? Pickle, Born? Stalingrad, Mother's maiden name? Rhubarb.

    If you copy/paste into the forum it tries and usually fails to get the same formatting that you had in the program you are copying from. Two ways to avoid that, easy is when you paste use your right-click menu to "paste without formatting" or "paste as plain text" if your browser offers that. The second way is to use the little toggle icon above the "B" bold formatting button to switch the forum to plain text mode before you paste, switch it back on after pasting.

    NV after full-time

    We looked at Las Vegas many years back, a bit expensive and emissions testing ruled it out. Not sure about Reno's test status or some of the smaller towns away from the metro areas but I'd check before you decide.
