    Pete is a jack of all trades - can fix or build anything. He also likes to hunt, fish and ride his motorcycle.
    I (Pat) am an avid gardener. I also love to bargain shop and read.

    We both enjoy being in the outdoors and camping.

  1. If you visit Southern Mesa Park, ask about the first time special -- it is still on their website at $199 month, not $300 mo.
  2. We have had many times that with either the Verizon jetpack, or the ATT Mobley, we have had data service when there was no cell phone service. This is one of the reasons we do not use our cell for internet access. We are currently 17 miles from a very small town - we have no cell service, but Mobley works well. There are data coverage maps that are different from cell coverage maps when you check the providers site. They are different.
  3. Many insurance companies WAIVE your deductible if you have a chip repaired instead of the entire glass replaced. You may want to check with your insurance to see if that is the case.
  4. It of course depends on what you are looking for, but we found Southern Mesa RV park about 8 miles south of Yuma on Ave3E. They would allow a variety of rv's with no size or age limitation, they have activities, bathrooms/showers, pool, laundry and sites are FHU with cement patio. They have mostly rv's in the park. Some left year round, but most are snowbirds. They may still be running a first timers special of $199 mo plus electric that is good as long as you stay in the park. We found that many of the higher end parks were too expensive, were way too big or were all built right next to I-8 so very noisy. The 8 miles out of town was much better. Our site was towards the back so quieter than being by the clubhouse/office/pool/bathrooms. I think it's 174 sites or something like that.
  5. Do a search for mail forwarding services in the state you prefer. Their website should help you sign up with them and get an address. If you want to establish residency, they can help you with that too.
  6. I have all seasons of clothing and room to store them, so I have a lot of clothing. I have rubbermaid containers that I store in one of the bays of the motorhome. I have never had mold develop. I have however had it develop in the top storage area under our bed. It's the part of the slide that is out and exposed to both cold and warm air from inside and out. I started putting everything that was likely to mold in the zip plastic containers like sheets or comforters come in and also added a damp rid in that section. No more problem. Do remember to change the damp rid containers often if in a humid area. They work well for any smaller enclosed area like a closet or under a dinette booth seat.
  7. We have a Norcold and seals are molded into the door so cannot be replaced. We did get luck and knew someone who was having a new frig installed, they had a newer same model frig and nothing wrong with their seals. They asked to keep the doors when techs put new in, and we just slid our decorative wood panels out of our doors, put their old doors with our panels on our frig for newer, better seals. Are your seals even replaceable?
  8. If you bank online what difference does it make which "branch" you have? You should be able to use any of their branches to conduct business if you actually need to go to one. Many people move in their own states, even out of state and never change from 1 bank to another, or 1 branch to another branch.
  9. Hopefully the owner if the park will realize how off level things are. We were hosting at a couple of different locations that were way off. The people who built the sites were not rvers and had no idea how far off level they were. In both cases, they brought equipment in and corrected the problem, or at least tried. Not saying I think this is what people should do, but since he did.....

    RV parks

    We occasionally stay at a Walmart, but usually at a campground We do use Passport America ( $44 yr to join) as much as possible when traveling for their 50% discount parks. We also like Corp of Engineer Parks which is 1/2 off with their pass. If we are stopping for just the night, the campground doesn't have to be anything special. just in a safe area.
  11. We have our full-timers policy with Progressive. They also insure our Jeep and motorcycles but each has it's own policy.
  12. We waiting until our house sold and closed before we set up our mail service (SD) they then helped us register and plate the vehicles in SD. (We didn't have to be present) and 1 month later we made the trip to establish residency , got our drivers licenses, insurance etc. You can use a mail service without declaring a different residency. If it were me I would wait until later to change your address. It is easier to get financing while you are still living in the home and you are not yet full-time. We financed our coach 1 year before actually moving out of our house and going full-time. We rented the house for 4 years before selling it. We used mail service only during that first four years and remained residents of our original home state during that time.
  13. Toaster , medium crockpot, 2 pizza pans without holes that can double as cookie sheets, over the burner griddle, dutch oven, 2 large and 2 small frying pans with covers, 2 large pots, 2 small pots with covers, 2 6 size muffin tins, 2 cake pans, 2 sizes of Pyrex glass baking dishes, 1 glass pie dish, 2 Pyrex casserole dishes with covers. 2 serving bowls, 6 corelle cereal bowls, 6 melamine bowls, 6 dinner plates, 6 small plates, 2 wooden salad bowls, lots of various tupperware and lids, 6 coffee mugs and a variety of beverage glasses both tupperware, plastic and glass. A glass set of Pyrex mixing bowls with covers that double as serving bowls. A drawer full of utensils, a knife block with Cutco knives, 6 paring knives of various sizes, the coffee pot, insulated coffee butler, cutting board, a couple of flower vases, a full service for 12 of silverware. Can opener, hand mixer , microwave omelet , 2 sizes of glass measuring cups, a set of plastic measuring cups and spoons and 1 very large measuring cup that is big enough to mix up a brownie mix or cake mix, batch of cookies etc. and probably a few other things I'm forgetting. My kitchen is pretty complete . Just missing a lot of the larger serving items I used to have, large bakeware items or fancy things like a bundt pan .
  14. We are plumbed for washer/dryer, but have never gotten one. Expensive - uses a lot of water which seems a waste, and small loads, the time it takes. All reasons why I prefer to use a laundromat be it in the town we are near, or the campground facilities. While waiting, I just read . It takes about 1 1/2 hours to do 5 large loads, dry and fold. I also plan the trips when I can combine it with grocery shopping or some other errands that need to be done. ( currently 17 miles from town). These 5 large loads would be at least 15 small loads in the rv. That's a lot of time, water/ electricity and/or propane and I'd still have to drive into town for groceries. On average I spend $20-$25 per month on laundry.
  15. In S Dakota we were given an address by your mail forwarding service.
