  1. What makes anyone think it's ALL truthful answers?
  2. For the past 3 years I've filled out the form for General Delivery at the Post Office I use in Eastern Washington. They also ask for ID when signed and when I pick up USPS mail. The form is good for 30 days. FedEx and UPS deliver to my camp site. Figured it was SOP and wasn't offended.
  3. And now it's April 1st - no foolin' Left Wickenburg this morning, heading north then east, then north again. Will have to do my Tucson tour some other time. Hope everyone is heading out on their journeys for 2019. We finally got normal weather for most of March and now it's as it should be. Post when you can and let us know where you are! Safe and happy travels to all.
  4. I am a legal resident of the USA - just happen to have my domicile in SD. Are you folks saying that I shouldn't be able to vote for President? People who use the SD benefits for full time RVers are not criminals because of that. I really doubt that all of us SD Fulltimers get together and try to 'swing' a local vote.
  5. The issue of 'no internet' got really bad on my Jet Pac, losing signal 2-3 times per day, then 'bingo' - got a notice from Verizon that my auto-pay was now activated (was set-up, but never worked at all) and now everything is as it should be. Still on my toes waiting for the other shoe to drop, but so far, all is well. This all happened towards the end of February.
  6. Just checked their locations....had never heard of Freddys before - they just opened one in Surprise, AZ. Yay, will be headed there for sure. Thanks for the advert.
  7. I've had the 760 for 2 years +/- and it works well. Takes a ton of data to download the 'free' map updates, but fixed that with the Verizon Unlimited Have to argue with it on occasion but, so far, I've won. I leave the unit plugged in and have not had any issue with that.
  8. Bought my current truck when I lived in Washington State, the dealer issued a temporary registration (30 days I think). I was able to do the rest of the paperwork myself anywhere I wanted. South Dakota worked out perfectly for me.
  9. This is my 3rd winter in Wickenburg, AZ at the same park. People come and go - some may spend 3 months here, then move somewhere else, but then there's someone who takes their space. The month of February is overflow with the activities here in town, but this park keeps 4-5 spaces for short term visitors. Seems pretty much the same level of turn around to me.
  10. As I mentioned in an earlier post, the first and second months were perfect, no shut downs except when the prepay didn't activate.. Now that I am in my 3rd month, each evening at about 10:00pm Mountain Time (AZ), the JetPack says all is well, but the computer shows 'limited' on the connection symbol and I lose internet. The first two nights, I immediately rebooted the JetPack and all went back to normal. Last night I waited to see if it would reboot on it's own....nope. Waited about 15 minutes, then did a manual reboot and all is well....again. Haven't taken the time to call/chat/drive to the Verizon store but will report what they say when done.
  11. For what it's worth... I also have been on the 'new' Verizon unlimited plan for 2 monthly cycles. The first time I can't say which came first, as the auto-pay did not activate, so I was just toast at 10:00 pm until I could get to a Verizon store the next day. Paid in cash and all was well. The next renewal, I had already paid the day before (at the store in cash) so was watching to be sure it was a smooth transition to the new month. Nope. As with others, the jetpack screen showed all was well....my computer didn't. I had no connection to internet. Shut it all down figuring another trip to the Verizon store. Next morning fired it up and it worked just like it should! Have no idea how long it took to get it's cycle arranged, but I'm thinking it's not a hardware issue. Will head into the Verizon store next week, but it's just a reseller, so not sure if they'll have any answers. Might be a couple weeks before I head back where there is a corporate store. Thanks to all who have given experiences in this thread.
  12. SNOWED in Wickenburg this morning...raining now, but still c-o-l-d. So I'm inside, warm and dry and wish you all HAPPY NEW YEAR Let's hope 2019 allows us to continue our journeys, make new friends and reach our destinations.
  13. Hey Vicki and Mark - great meeting you today. Always fun to trade travel stories...although you folks have traveled to many, many more places than I have! Here's to good adventures all around.
  14. Hi Vicki - I'm at Hospitality for the winter....was just in Pahrump on my way down here. Stayed at the Escapees park last year, but this year used my Passport America at Preferred RV. Maybe we could meet up? Let me know when you get down this way.
  15. I found the same thing, CincyGus, and at one time read just about these same answers here...so I found this forum http://www.forestriverforums.com/forums/ Pretty active for Toy Haulers, some brand specific, but very friendly folks who will try to answer any question or point you in the right direction. Also, lots of general RV tech questions answered. Not owned by Forest River - private forum, if that makes any difference.
