    Basics of Boondocking

    Another option is getting a Motorhome which is truly self-contained with a large Genset. They are quiet and can provide full AC capability. Albeit at a higher cost than a Trailer.

    Mail forwarding for Half-Time RV'ers

    Thank you everyone for your valuable feedback!
  3. We are Florida residents and are ‘Half-time’ RV’ers - each year we typically take 4-6 month-long cross-country RV trip, a five week-long RV trip to the Keys, and a five week-long RV trip to the DC area. Our trips are too long to take advantage of USPS Mail Hold (maximum 30-day holds). In the past we have had a neighbor forward our mail, but no longer wish to do so. Looking for recommendations on mail forwarding services. We’ve reviewed USPS mail forwarding (it is expensive ($20 a week) and appears to be for someone who is temporarily moving to one location), and various mail services (Escapees, Traveling Mailbox, MyRVMail), which all require us to change our address to the mail service address. Any recommendations? Thank you.

    Cocoa, FL Places to Stay

    I have narrowed my search to Patrick AFB at Manatee Cove or KARS campground. Any thoughts on these. I am retired military. Thanks, John Bruns

    Why HDT + 5er vs Class A + Toad?

    We all love the Rigs we bought. I chose a Showhauler Motorhome Conversion. It has a 12.5KW Generator and 200 gallons of water and Solar on the Roof. Very easy to Boondock and tons of storage. Although we don't pull a trailer, many do. It also has a 40K hitch. JohnnyB

    Rear Tire Pressure

    Michelin tire rep told me to maintain at least 80psi for proper beading onto the rim. JohnnyB

    How do you know when shocks are shot?

    Folks, What is the wrench size for my steer axle shocks? Do I need a strap wrench to compress the shock? Thanks, JohnnyB

    Folks, We will be driving Southbound on 287 from Amarillo to Dallas. Our Trucker Atlas says there is a low clearance situation at the intersection of 287 and 325 in Wichita Falls. We are 13'6" in height. Should we be concerned or do we have old data. Thanks, JohnnyB
