  1. Thanks all for the replies. We re-did our schedules, and now plan to take the motorhome to SD the last week of April. We had different plans, but adapted to get the renewals accomplished.
  2. I am already a SD resident with a real ID act SD drivers license. I need to make a quick one night trip to ANY South Dakota Airport with a decent close by hotel in order to get the receipt no older than one year so I can renew on line. Flying from Huntsville AL on or about 2 April. Any advice on which airport / hotel to use? Bonus if I can go to DMV while at the hotel, but not absolutely necessary. Thanks for any leads.
  3. Thanks for the suggestions. We have been traveling and working other issues but will begin looking into the solutions recommended.
  4. I am going to start researching a simple temp monitor to install in the coach. Temp sensor to connect via Wi-Fi to our on board wireless network, and then be able to check temps via our cell phones while away from the coach.Even better if the wireless temp sensor is programmable to send alerts (email and/or text) at set points for high temp. Purpose: in case power goes out in hot weather, get alerts to protect pets on board from overheating (by returning to the coach). No desire to change thermostat set point while away from coach. Anyone already done the research?
  5. He was asked to stop by others present and he refused. Then he sent his sons to change the plates on their truck to cover up his crime. Not the sign of a man sorry. His wife is no better, and one of the girls started to carve as well - like "daddy" just taught her.
  6. On the Mobley, check the shipping email. They changed my Mobley order to a Audiovox connected car device with no prior contact nor permission. I just returned that incorrect device. If your shipping email says Audiovox they have done the same to you.

    Mt Vernon?

    Very few sewer drops, mainly 30 amp. We are TT members and stay there sometimes, but paying full retail for no sewer and 30 amp???
  8. Been there, but I was active duty at the time and not on a visitation day.
  9. Not all projects are for all people to do themselves. I highly recommend you hire a RV tech to do this for you.
  10. Touching back on this issue (I am the OP). FICO score has NOTHING to do with this - mine is well over 800. It IS the Patriot Act combined with using a legal domiicile of a mail forward address. ​I joined Alliant Credit Union yesterday in preparation of a future RV loan. Today my on line access was blocked. When I called I was transferred to the fraud department. As soon as I established myself as a full time RV traveler, with Escapees membership as the authorization to join Alliant Credit Union, and the legal domicile of a mail forward address, she knew the issue - and knew of the next of kin work around. It was exactly as I stated in the first post on this thread. I will simply need to provide a next of kin letter so the credit union can comply with Patriot Act requirements. Just because "some" have not had this issue "yet" does not mean it is not a real issue, and becoming more prevalent. If you established banking connections before the new requirements you were not affected. Going forward, when opening stock broker accounts, bank accounts, credit union account you very likely WILL BE. The solution is simple, but you may have to educate those you deal with. Older thread, same issue: http://www.rvnetwork.com/index.php?showtopic=112212&hl=+americas +mailbox&page=2 Folks, don't be so quick to tell people experiencing this issue that it does not exist! ​ , **** It's the CIP (Customer Identification Program) rule (31 C.F.R. 103.121), which is the regulation implementing Section 326 of the USA PATRIOT Act that requires a financial institution to get the following customer information (bottom of page 480 from PDF above): (1) Name; (2) Date of birth, for an individual; (3) Address, which shall be: (i) For an individual, a residential or business street address; (ii) For an individual who does not have a residential or business street address, an Army Post Office (APO) or Fleet Post Office (FPO) box number, **********or the residential or business street address of next of kin or of another contact individual;************
  11. If you attempt a RV loan with USAA (or other banks and credit unions) as a full timer, be aware you will likely have to educate them on the Patriot Act (they will tell you no loans for full timers). The problem is "probably" the CIP (Customer Identification Program) rule (31 C.F.R. 103.121), which is the regulation implementing Section 326 of the USA PATRIOT Act that requires a financial institution to get the following customer information (bottom of page 480 from PDF above): (1) Name; (2) Date of birth, for an individual; (3) Address, which shall be: (i) For an individual, a residential or business street address; (ii) For an individual who does not have a residential or business street address, an Army Post Office (APO) or Fleet Post Office (FPO) box number, ***********or the residential or business street address of next of kin or of another contact individual;******************** ​Invoke the next of kin exemption, bump up through supervision and management until you reach someone who can over ride the generic patriot act stonewall. ​Alliant and Good Sam have it figured out - others don't yet.

  13. If I was in the market right now for a high end build quality coach that will last, I would look at this 2003 coach closely: http://motorhomesoftexas.com/coachrv/foretravel/2003--u320--40--C1852A (Ihave no financial interest and never seen it in person) ​Good place to shop for older high build quality coaches: http://motorhomesoftexas.com/ Support forums for Foretravel: http://www.foreforums.com/index.php?action=forum ​Our future coach may be another Bluebird, a Foretravel, or perhaps the "right" Newmar or Tiffin with side radiator. ​Love the floor plans on Tiffin, the Star Chassis under the 2016 and up Newmar, and the build quality and strength of Bluebird and Foretravel. (we prefer no more than 40' on coaches)
