    We are retired so we have no interest what so ever. Whatever comes up is interesting to us. Traveling and staying out of Cold weather is our goal.

  1. We have been RVers for many ,many years this 3402 is our 6th Rv and 2nd 5th wheel. The first 4 were bumper pulls and we did weekends and maybe a one week vacation. When we both retired our goal was to see the USA and winter in a warm place. We have been doing that since 2006.
  2. This is the first forum we joined one year before we purchased our first 5th wheel(but our 6th RV) We were leaning toward full timing and this was the place to learn. We did learn, we did not full time. We belong to the Montana Owners club and this forum. We did so because we chose to.
  3. We have never had a warranty problem.
  4. We can handle a 10.00 $$$ increase.
  5. Quartzsite is a long haul for us being from Northern ,Ohio. We have however been to Quartzsite twice as we happened to be traveling in the area. We prefer to get our meds and medical , dental work done in the USA. We are not fans of boondocking such as it is in "Q" or camping in the dessert .It is however a experience and should be on the RVers bucket list
  6. We have all of the mentioned drug stores near our home and they all do the flu shot. We got ours at wall greens since they are the nearest.
  7. Ignore it and do whatever you choose to do.

  9. We have no problem with Medicare it has served us well with no problems what so ever...….. Yet. Between our Federal BC/BS and Medicare it is rare that we pay any out of pocket.
  10. Our Medicare premium is 2942 for the both of us. The BC/BS which was a Federal Government plan since we both were Federal employees was 6080 total . That = 9022 .Medicare did pick up 80 % of the bill.The out of pocket was for additional cost we choose to incur like private room , TV, Phone and special diet. This is a edit We had to go back and check numbers. We made a mistake on our Medicare premium. We usually do not have to pay anything between our BC/BS and Medicare BTW our BC/BS plan is 253.00 per month per person for those who may have been federal employees that is code 104 self only was less than self and family. The additional cost was personal choice
  11. We were very fortunate to be able to carry over a very good BC/BS plan provided by our employer .Helen and I worked for the same employer, It still cost us with Medicare over 9K a year for coverage but many pay much more than that. Few years ago Helen had non life threating surgery that from start to finish had a bill of over 65 K.I think it cost us around 3K out of pocket. We would have been done in had we had to pay that entire bill.
  12. For what purpose and who is doing that.
  13. Summers are not all that bad here in Northern Ohio. We did not travel anywhere this summer and we usually leave for our Residence in Florida in Oct but this year we are staying in Northern Ohio for the winter for the first time since 2005.
  14. Anyone notice that Glenn is no longer responding....
  15. We carry a couple of surgical masks in the car and truck and one is in my pocket at all times. We are not a medical person so we will pay attention to reliable medical community and not Facebook experts or politicians. The mask is very uncomfortable and I have trouble breathing through it in a short time. I wear it were it is mandated.
