    Rehanging glass shower door panels

    I had a problem with one of my panels getting really loose and then binding up. It turned out to not be a big deal to fix. One of the guide screws came loose. I removed the screws from each end of the top rail the panels are hanging from and lifted the whole assmebly off the shower and laid it on the bed. If I remember right, the rail slid off the panels then you could see how they go together. I removed the loose screw and put a drop of blue loctite on it and found another loose screw and did the same for it. I then slid everything back together and rehung the assembly on the shower. We haven’t had any more trouble with it.

    Ordering a new truck

    That place went under several years ago. They did a huge volume. If I remember right one of the Houston Oiler players was one of the owners.

    Ordering a new truck

    I am hoping it will be this easy. I am concerned with the requirement of a state inspection certificate for the registration. The dealer I ordered the truck through is looking into the ways we can do the title and registration.
  5. I am ready to order a new truck to pull my 5th wheel. I am an Escapees member in Texas and I want to title/register the truck in Texas. I am in New Hampshire for the winter. I am thinking about ordering a truck from a dealer in Indianapolis, because of the price, but then I have to take delivery and drive it to Texas to do the title/registration. Has anyone here ordered or bought a truck from a dealer in the Livingston TX area and had good results as far as pricing and ease of buying? I do have the option of buying through the dealer in Indianapolis and having it delivered to a dealer in Livingston, if one of them is willing to do this. Any thoughts?
  6. How did this work out for you? I need to find someone in the Livingston area to do my taxes.

    Tax Home Help

    I do plan to use a CPA in Livingston at least once to see what happens.

    Tax Home Help

    After doing a lot more reading she is going to have tax money withheld from her pay. Next time we do taxes I will try to locate a CPA familiar with tax laws regarding full time travelers.

    Tax Home Help

    It was my wife that talked to the CPA and I don't think the CPA is clear on the situation or she is not familiar with this situation. We are trying to get this sorted out because my wife is starting her first contract as a travel nurse. The first three months we are staying in Houston. We expect to be moving every three to six months and use Livingston as our home base. I am going to retire when we start moving. Thanks for the information on state income tax as we travel, that is something else I was going to look into.

    Tax Home Help

    This is what I understood from reading on the internet, and we know everything on the internet is true:)
  12. We are full time RVers that have not been moving around. This will change in the near future. We have joined Escapees and we have a mailing address in Livingston. Our vehicles, including the 5th wheel are registered in Polk County, Livingston, and we have registered to vote there too. We sold our house a year and a half ago so Livingston is our only address. We have been trying to find out if our Livingston address qualifies as a Tax Home to IRS tax filing. As of now, we are staying in an RV park in Houston and we will start moving around the country after the first of the year. Some people we talk to, including a CPA, say our Tax Home is where ever we are staying because we don’t have an actual house any more. Others, including a CPA, have said as long as we have the mailing address, vehicle registration, and voter registration in Livingston, it can be used as our Tax Home no matter where in the country we are during the year. Does anyone here have any experience with this?
