I’m looking for educated feedback on a problem I’m having with having my RV weight. While on our first snowbird trip to Florida, after a 6 weeks stay in a private RV Park, we prepared the RV to be EXACTLY as we would expect to normally travel. Being an Escapee member, we scheduled a stop at an Escapee Weigh station. Having personally weighed most everything that went into the RV (and making some allowances for the items I didn’t weigh) the number came very close to what I expected. My goal was to find out how much weight I had left for a planned solar upgrade. My solar guy suggested that I might get a 2nd data point just to make sure. Two weeks later, after having shed weight, I rolled onto a CAT scale for the first time. It said I weigh 390 pounds heavier. Adjusting for the weight I shed, it was a 520 pounds difference. WHAT? So after our next stop two weeks later, we rolled across a different CAT scale. Allowing for about 100 pounds I added, it said I had gained 220 pounds. Now I have 640 pounds unaccounted for between the Escapee weight and the 2nd CAT scale weight. Anybody have any educated feedback and/or experiences to provide? Any help would be appreciated as I am very perplexed.
We have been helping out as Volunteers at the CARE Center facility here at Livingston and have found it to be a very rewarding experience. The residents here are what make the helping such a joy. They are, for the most part, a very happy transposed but "real family" of seniors making the most of their "Golden Years". Our fellow Volunteers have exhibited a willingness to go the extra mile in helping the residents and in making our sometimes demanding schedules work. As we were learning how to accomplish our part here, many times other volunteers gave of their free time to make sure we were successful. Our only regret is, as we are preparing to move on with our lives, we find the Volunteer staff here is going to be critically short handed come May. There does not seem to be a way to communicate CARE's needs to Escapees in general so I am using this method on this forum to ask - If you have ever thought of helping out at CARE or if you would like to reach out and help others but didn't know what to do, now is your chance - please contact the CARE Center and Volunteer now. http://www.escapeescare.org/ for all the details or call 1-936-327-4256 and say you would like to help Sincerely, Glen & Jaime Raab SKP#97600
