  1. Thanks again. I've done the same thing # [xxxx] Very interesting. And yes, I'm in a motorhome, so I don't use USAA/Progressive.
  2. Rob, I've explained my situation to them as well. But this is the 2nd time in 6 months that I've received this request for a physical address. What have you done differently? Thanks in advance!
  3. Good to know. Thanks, Mark and Teri.
  4. I do appreciate everyone's comments. Not sure why it turned snarky (a sign of the times, I guess.) Perhaps other fulltimers like myself will eventually face this dilemma as it is not a USAA stance, it's a Patriot Act issue. So after reading all your comments again, I've decided that I will add my winter address as a physical address, keep my Dakota Post address as my mailing address, and simply change the physical address if/when I change my winter location. Hopefully that will meet the requirement, and not generate too many questions from USAA. Thanks again, safe travels, and stay healthy everyone! Again, here's what you may encounter: But I hope you do not! "Section 326 of the USA PATRIOT Act requires USAA Federal Savings Bank to obtain, verify and record personal data such as your name, address, date of birth, Social Security or Taxpayer Identification Number and other information that allows us to identify you. You have been identified as requiring a valid physical, residential address. The physical address must not be a P.O. Box or other mail-receiving address (commonly referred to as Commercial Mail Receiving Agency), even if it appears as a street address. This is separate from your mailing address, which may be a P.O. Box or commercial address. Your physical address and mailing address do not need to be the same. Mail will continue to be delivered to your listed mailing address."
  5. First of all, USAA is not ONLY my car insurance provider. It has been my banking, investing, and auto for over 40 years. I WILL NOT insure my RV with USAA because they contract out to Progressive (George Soros, etc) I DO NOT feel comfortable lying about my address. I DO NOT want to change my address. I think this is a RIGHTS issue. Perhaps I need to call an attorney? Escapees recommended one.
  6. I don't use PMB either! Just #4441 for my "box" Got the email today. Yours is coming!!
  7. I've been with USAA for over 40 years. But now they claim that the Patriot Act precludes them from doing business with me due to my PMB in Sioux Falls, SD (that I have had for over 7 years.) Here's the gist: "What You Need to Know Section 326 of the USA PATRIOT Act requires USAA Federal Savings Bank to obtain, verify and record personal data such as your name, address, date of birth, Social Security or Taxpayer Identification Number and other information that allows us to identify you. You have been identified as requiring a valid physical, residential address. The physical address must not be a P.O. Box or other mail-receiving address (commonly referred to as Commercial Mail Receiving Agency), even if it appears as a street address. This is separate from your mailing address, which may be a P.O. Box or commercial address. Your physical address and mailing address do not need to be the same. Mail will continue to be delivered to your listed mailing address." Any advice??
  8. Thanks all. I'll put my voltmeter on the GFI tomorrow (when it's light and warmer!) But I have NOTHING plugged in and I have searched everywhere for a 2nd GFI. Manual is no help either. But I still say that the one GFI that I have found should "click" when I test it! And I've never had a coach that didn't have GFI in bathroom and near kitchen sink. Guess there's no "code" for RV's?
  9. The Xantrex panel reads fine. 13.1 input voltage. My suspicion is that it is in fact that faulty GFI.
  10. The single GFI receptacle is bad. Went to reset it, and it won't. Buttons don't even "click" like they should. Just another item on the list of things that have been wrong with this unit :-( Going back to a Tiffin as soon as I find the right one! Thanks folks.
  11. I have reset all the breakers (a couple of times) And to clarify, the receptacles in the bathroom and kitchen are fine. Just Front TV, the receptacle at dinette and the 2 in the bedroom do not work - none of which are GFI. Everything else is powered. Weird.
  12. Tripped a breaker with a heater yesterday. No problem. Reset the tripped breaker at the panel and it was fine. Lost power again when I tried to up the power setting on the heater (bad mistake), so I checked the breaker panel, but none were tripped! Now, with the exception of the front TV, and the receptacles away from kitchen and bath areas, I have power. Fuses are fine, I unplugged from shore to "reset" but to no avail. Any guesses? PS - I'm in a Itasca Cambria Class C 30 amp. I also discovered that the only GFI receptacle in this rig is located in one of the compartments underneath! Not good.
  13. Hello! I just found this forum - I've been hanging out on the veterans forum, trying to get advice about domicile. I was a fulltimer from 2004-2007 while I was still on active duty in the Army. Those were three of the best years of my life. When I retired, I had this crazy notion that I could settle down, go back to my home state (New York - FInger Lakes region) but I only lasted three years there. I moved here to KY in 2010 and got the itch around Christmastime to move again. So I had an epiphany; fulltiming makes the most sense for me! I put my condo on the market May 6th and sold it on June 19th. I never anticipated selling that fast, but had already decided on an RV, and had started selling some of my household items. I have three moving sales scheduled for later this month, and plan to hit the road by early Sept. My intent is to spend quality time near friends and family across the county and check off things on my bucket list along the way. I am currently on www.flexjobs.com looking for some telecommuter work to keep busy and earn extra golf/bowling fun money! Seriously looking at FL and SD for domicile purposes. SD seems pretty RV friendly and some RV friends have strongly recommended that state. But I am always open to discussion. Looking forward to following my classmate's posts!
