  1. We do the same. Didn't work for us. All 3 doors opened up. Large container of applesauce spilled from refrig to freezer. Not a pretty site.
  2. We have found it difficult for us not to have long term reservations in the southern parks. Because of our 45' toyhauler & HDT we find it to be challenging to find parks that can accommodate us. Many parks have chosen to either pack in as many trailers as possible or have not upgraded to the newer & larger RV's. Our next winter tour will take us into AZ for the first time. We had to commit to a 3 month stay or some of the parks wouldn't guarantee a site. I suspect that we could have opted to do as some & taken a short term site but my comfort zone is for knowing I'm not going to get bumped off of a site by a longer term renter or have to move from site to site for the same reason. I appreciate those that are more mobile than we are & hope to one day do the same. My intent was to be that way from the get go but FHU sites are very comforting for us on the long term. Todd

    Merry Christmas

    Merry Christmas to all. Todd
  4. It's been 3.5 years but I'm pretty sure you need to use the address that you used for your proof of residence. In other words, the place you overnighted in to establish what SD considers is your address. We used a campground address. I've been known to have CRS so hopefully someone who has recently been involved in this situation can confirm what I believe to be true. Todd

    Purchasing Fuel

    One of us will take a credit card in to the cashier & indicate a $3-400.00 credit to get the pump turned on. Kind of a pain but it works. Todd
  6. I started with through the wheel with D rings on either side. My car had a tendency to move around more than I cared for. Went with over the wheel with tread blocks. Not sure how you're using through the wheel. Have to look at Jacks 's website to see if there's something new out there. I've had my tie down system fail on 1 or 2 wheels in the past. Roads don't seem to be getting any smoother. Todd
  7. As for the OP, we have an older Volvo with the D12. Put a lot of money into the motor. I understand that's not common. It usually takes a Volvo garage for some of the engine work but I've had repairs done at Ford dealerships & many other independent shops. Moresmoke nailed it when he said, find a dealership to work on your truck 24/7. I've been to truck shops that said to get in line your next or can you bring it in tomorrow? Yesterday I had a rear bag leak. Drove down to an independent truck shop with my car & was told to go get the truck, I'll put a guy on it. Todd
  8. A couple of years ago I drove up to a roadside check. Tried driving by with the other traffic but the guy with the flag waved for me to pull over. I was pulling my camper & had "Private RV" on the truck. When I got up to him he decided to wave me through. I won't start any arguments about why that particular time I was waved through I can only assume it was because if we are properly licensed, we are not prone to these inspections. Todd
  9. Larry & Donna Bitter/sweet, for sure. Great that you found a buyer & more than that, you are able to provide to your family what truly matters most. Best wishes. Todd E
  10. I hope someone that has one might chime in. At first glance I don't know how the electric wiring that's mostly in conduit & inside the walls of a trailer is going to do better than a roof mounted antenna. Todd
  11. We are first time "Winter Texans" in the lower RGV area. Our park filled in right after the 1st of Jan. & as people move out others fill in within a day or two. Been looking at other parks in the area & seems as though they too, are full. Todd
  12. You're right Glen. I had a bad experience with a small solar charger this past summer. 4 "dead" batteries. I need to buy a better system. Todd
  13. Not cost effective & usually not practical. If the site is too small for the 5th wheel & truck, it's probably too small to get into from the get go. Over flow parking for the tow vehicle is an option if there is electric available to keep the batteries charged. Todd
  14. We fulltime & are almost always in the North. We head South when the campgrounds start closing down, usually from 15-31 Oct. The earlier the rally the more days we end up double paying for campsites because we pay either seasonally or monthly in the North. Later works better for us.
