  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. Oh, I can think of a few... but I certainly wouldn't want a vaccination there! Rob
  5. 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
  6. Thanks for the compliment, Kirk. I haven't had anyone call me "youngster" in a while. Rob
  7. DC and HI (> 26K), IN and WI (>45 ft). I've never met any full-timers who domicile in those places, though. Rob
  8. Quivering lips? I was fearless in the face of a sugar cube! Rob
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. USAA doesn't use agents, per se, Kirk. Customers deal with a central system via phone or an internet account. I think if everything is changed to "#" rather than "PMB," the OP should be OK. That's how hundreds of the rest of us do it. BTW, if you need to make a claim, there are no adjusters with USAA, either. USAA has agreements with thousands of vetted shops across the country. We just take the car in, the shop does the estimate and submits it to USAA, and within a couple of hours it's approved. Rob
  13. From what you're describing, I would find another source for tire advice. Many tire shops won't touch a tire/wheel that has had a sealant in it. As Glenn said, good tires don't leak and, if something makes a big enough hole to make the tire leak, a sealant won't help, anyway. As for the other, sounds like another scheme to part fools from their money (really high markup/profit margin for the dealers on this type of thing). Rob
  14. If you read my post above, I quoted from the Texas DMV web site: "Once you return to the state, you must complete a Texas vehicle inspection within three days of arrival at your home, duty station, or destination." Rob
