    Dang, I wish I had thought of that before I showed it to the wife! My favorite part of the article:

    Can I really full time on $2,000 a month

    You could carry a scooter on the front of the truck. Like this (photo from internet, not mine):

    Saw a F450 puffing white smoke......

    Any idea what the year of that F450 might have been? Just curious because I have a 2002 F450 with the 7.3.

    Question about RV Pic

    I didn't know NADA had fifth wheels listed. More great info! Thanks! I think he's referring to the corrosion on the panel that opens. I would probably just clean that and put POR-15 over it. Thanks for telling me that's the drain plug, too!

    Question about RV Pic

    Aaah, water heater! That's good to know! I saw what looked like gas and an igniter but a furnace is what came to mind. The rest of the trailer isn't too rusty to my eyes. But then it's pretty new so you wouldn't expect much rust. PPL has it in Houston but who knows where it was used. The price seems pretty good but it has been on PPL's website for a little while. Usually, the good buys at PPL seem to go quick. I was thinking maybe this was what was deterring potential buyers. We're not about to run over and buy it simply because I can't get away from work for a while. So chances are it will be sold before we can go see it. Still I am interested in what everyone sees wrong. I'm hoping it'll help me make a better decision when we do buy.

    Question about RV Pic

    So I'm always casually perusing 5th Wheels looking for the perfect one to buy. Sometimes I see pics that make me wonder. Here's a pic of a 2017 Grand Design with some corrosion. I'm guessing this is the furnace and maybe it had a leak at some time? Anybody else got a better explanation? And the bigger question is - would this be something that would deter you from buying? I'm thinking no but don't really know.

    Wow, that's pretty cool! Watch out - little girls will be asking him to haul stuff for them in no time! 😉

    rent or sell the s&b house?

    So I see things from the other side - we have rented the last 3 houses we lived in. They've all been about 10 years old, give or take a couple years. You would never know it from looking at them, though. The wear and tear on rental houses is pretty horrendous. The houses we've rented have had all kinds of low-level damage. I'd never consider renting a house after seeing what previous renters have done to the houses we've lived in. And you figure the houses we've rented have been relatively expensive. I suspect the cheaper rentals get a lot more abuse.

    Samsung S6 to either S8 or S9

    I'd be interested to know how you think the new phone compares with the old one. I'm still using an S5 but I'd consider upgrading if there is some cool new stuff I can do with it.

    To use multiple inveters or large inveter

    Out of curiosity, how do the prices compare?

    Running the AC (and more) with Battery and Solar

    Yeah, I think I missed the "no sharing information you weren't specifically asked about" rule. This internetting is some serious business! Thanks for sharing OP! Looks like a nice setup!

    Tricare Select vs. Prime for traveling fulltimers

    I'm interested as well. Retirement isn't far away.

    Verizon Unlimited Data Plan for Jetpacks

    I'm confused on what you are getting and how much it costs. Are you getting two cell phones and unlimited MiFi for about $94 (184 - 90) per month?
