  1. Yes I had a couple of hundred but now down to 39
  2. I use Lastpass to generate and store my passwords. They are usually long and complicated and different for each and every site. I use 2 step verification on everything that's important like, bank accts, email, amazon, Lastpass etc.The only password that has to be one I remember is for the Lastpass. I change my passwords often which is easy to do with Lastpass maybe 3 to 4 times a year. Works well and I've been using it for 2 to 3 years now. There are other programs out there too like Keepass and others.
  3. I have the Tailgator for about 5 years and it's been great for me, no problems or issues. Been from NH to Texas and back with it among other places.
  4. I towed a 37' Cameo for a few years with a short bed truck that required a sliding hitch. I hated it. Because of the plate that goes on the trailer I had to be within 12 degrees of straight ahead to hook up or unhook making getting into tighter spots a pain or not possible. Because it was an auto slider the turning radius would change slightly as the hitch slid back and forth in the bed. Later on I traded for a long bed truck with a standard 5th wheel hitch and I liked it much better. If you can get away with not using a sliding hitch perhaps the short bed would be ok.
  5. Hi all, My wife and I are now hosting at Lake James State Park in Nebo, NC. We'll be leaving at the end of April and the host that was scheduled for May has backed out. This is a one month commitment in a beautiful state park on a huge lake. We are near great hiking,fishing,biking, shopping and restaurants. The staff here is friendly and helpful and treats the hosts very well. This is our 2nd tour here and we'll be returning next year. PM me for more details and contact info. You can also go to the Lake James State Park web page
  6. This site lists sites for sale and rent, I'm sure there are others. Also on craigslist go to the state and area and select parking and storage and put RV in the search box, do the same thing in real estate for sale. You might be surprised at what you come up with. http://www.rvproperty.com/
  7. Similar thing happened to me and it was a loose connection at the terminal on the RV end of the 50 amp cord. I bought a new socket and cut back the cable enough to eliminate the burned and charred wires. I was able to clean and reuse my trailer receptacle but it looks like you'll need to replace yours.
  8. I agree, I have had a tailgater for a few years now and there have been many places i would not have had reception if it were mounted on the roof due to obstructions especially here in the Northeast. I keep 100' of cable on a cord reel so i can move the dish almost anywhere. wasn't such an issue out west.
  9. Truck is 2013 Silverado 3500 HD crew cab dually with Duramax Diesel and Alison 6 speed trans. This truck is a great tower that we used to tow our 5th wheel to Texas and back to New Hampshire twice. Truck has less than 16k miles and has a couple of years left on the factory warranty. It has never been driven in winter, It is stored in my heated garage from Oct to May. Any time it has spent parked outside it has been covered. This is a high end truck that's hard to find and is literally like new. It is loaded with options such as: Electronically adjustable pedals, Six way adjustable heated and air conditioned seats for both driver and passenger, great six speaker Bose stereo, LTZ trim package, leather seats, driver’s memory seat rear window and side mirror defoggers, Cruise, Navigation, Satellite radio, Onstar with sat phone, Alloy wheels, Factory bed liner, Factory running boards, factory exhaust brake, rear view camera, much more. Still under factory warranty. Will include the 16k Pullrite hitch with super rail system. This hitch easily disassembles for removal giving you a perfectly flat bed for cargo. Truck still covered under factory warranty. Today this truck would list for about 76k new asking 51,000. I have many photos available upon request. bgbassman@gmail.com
  10. Thanks for the replies. Heading from PPL in Houston o Northern New Hampshire right out of the gate. Luckily no sales tax in N.H.
  11. If I buy a used motorhome in Texas from a dealer does that dealer issue a temp vehicle registration and tag for transportation services in most cases?
  12. What would be the best time of year to leave a vehicle on consignment? When would buyer traffic be peaking? Given a choice I don't think I'd want it sitting there in the hottest summer months.
  13. I think Uship might be your best option.
  14. If there is anyone on this forum who would like this trailer I will sell it for 29K. Thanks for looking
  15. For anyone interested I have posted my 2011 Cameo for sale on craigslist, the listing can be found at the link here: http://nh.craigslist.org/rvs/5469595468.html Thanks for looking
