  1. That's why I always use the "All Activity" function to look at the forums every day. It lists the latest posts regardless of which topical sub-forum they're in. Rob
  2. The rack itself weighs 23 lbs. and then you'll have the weight of the bike. That's a lot for a 1.2" tube (unless the the "tube" is solid). You might get by with it, but I would be nervous. If I recall, you're in a class C? Is there any way you could secure the bike inside the RV for the trip? Rob
  3. Because of the G-forces at the back of an RV, I wouldn't trust any rack with a 1/25" tube. There are bike racks that are certified by the manufacturer for RV use. Swagman has several... this is the one we use: Amazon link Rob
  4. I'll concur with Scott. The two stretched mentioned are pretty bad. We've done the I-20 route through Shreveport as recently as this spring. "Potholes" and "rough" aren't strong enough words. Rob
  5. Then I'm voting for the control board or the resistive heating element(s) on the fridge (some models have one electric element, others have two). If you have a multimeter and are comfortable doing this type of thing, you can use Google and find out how to check output to the heating element from the relay and/or check the resistance of the heating element. If you're not experienced in this type of thing, don't do it since it's 110 AC. Rob
  6. When you say "check if ac," do you mean in the whole RV or at the outlet for the refrigerator? If the fridge works on propane, then you know you have 12 volts for the controls. If there is AC at the outlet at the back of the fridge, that would narrow the problem down to the refrigerator control board or the heating elements in the cooling unit. Rob
  7. Oh, I can think of a few... but I certainly wouldn't want a vaccination there! Rob
  8. The chickenpox (varicella) vaccine wasn't licensed in the US until 1995. Our kids just caught the disease from kids at church or playmates and endured a week of itching and confinement to gain immunity. Rob
  9. Thanks for the compliment, Kirk. I haven't had anyone call me "youngster" in a while. Rob
  10. DC and HI (> 26K), IN and WI (>45 ft). I've never met any full-timers who domicile in those places, though. Rob
  11. Quivering lips? I was fearless in the face of a sugar cube! Rob
  12. Hmmm... wonder why they've insured both of our fifth wheels, then - including currently? Rob Edit: I'm wondering if it has anything to do with state of domicile. There are difference insurance regulations in each state and USAA is licensed separately in each state according to the residence of the policy holder. We are domiciled in Texas.
  13. We've not done anything special. We followed advice early on and only used "#" in our Escapees address rather than "PMB" or something else. Example: 161 Rainbow Drive #[xxxx] Livingston TX 77399 I know that the Escapees' system has been tested in the courts and held up - perhaps it's something with your SD PMB address. We have other friends who use the Escapees Livingston address (with "#") with USAA and don't have any issue with it, either. BTW, USAA will insure towable RVs - they just farm motorhomes out to Progressive. Rob
  14. I disagree. They have supported us full-timing from the get-go. We have informed them of what we're doing at every step. Rob
