Winnebago-specific issues / Re: Winnebago Rialta Double 1996

Pretty cool looking rigs!  If they were turbodiesel (clean or not) it might be worth a try but I think parts are going to get hard to find for that VW.

Only until they're hard.
Fulltiming / Re: Changing residency: FL, SD or PA? (duh, not PA)

You should also take insurance costs into consideration:  vehicle, medical, etc.  They vary a lot between states.
Yes, a good point and I intend to have a long talk with Geico about that. (Fortunately I have company provided medical with same costs to me regardless of state). I was hoping someone had compared these two states and found specific advantages and disadvantages to each.

My list of questions/concerns that I've thought of so far:
  • State income tax rate (I believe zero in both states)
  • Vehicle registration costs
  • Vehicle inspection/smog rules
  • Vehicle registration procedures (for example, SD will just send you the plates, you don't have to bring the vehicle)
  • Procedure for becoming a resident of that state (for example, a single night in a motel for SD)
  • Drivers license procedures (have to be present in SD, I'm sure same in FL)
  • Mail forwarding services seem to be available at approximately the same costs with roughly the same services in both states
I will be spending a fair amount of time in both FL and PA so that would make it easier for both of those. I bring up PA again, because of mail forwarding. If the savings of becoming a resident of either SD or FL is largely eaten-up by the cost of mail forward and other details, I'll probably not bother and do PA instead and get a PO box, where I can forward for free anytime I'm not there.
Motorhomes / Re: Keep Blowing Fuses

I did a temporary fix by disconnecting the marker lights. The fuse was also connected to the back running lights as well.

Now that I disconnected all the marker lights, the fuse is not blowing.

I figure that as long as there are reflectors on the light covers, I should be OK.

I don't know of any laws that require marker lights to be operational on RVs.

It even varies among state parks. Our Florida and NY reservations are always site specific, but for Georgia they're non-site specific, and you just drive around and pick an empty site after check in.

There's a CG we use to frequent but they changed their rules. They too don't allow us to pick the site. The site we always wanted was next to a indoor pool and typically in the fall or early spring. They may have made that rule so they could accommodate RV's staying for a 1 week or 2. We we're only looking for a couple of days.
As I said, we use to frequent. We don't go anymore.

Tech Talk / Residential Refrigerator or Not?
« Last post by skeggo on Today at 12:41:18 PM »
Hi All,

Looking for some guidance whether to swap out our Norcold RV refrigerator for a residential. I know there are many, many posts on this topic and I have read most of them. But looking for some recent experiences and opinions.

Here is our situation. Our current Norcold 1200 rarely gets below 45 degrees in the refrigerator. The unit is ~5 years old having been replaced by the previous owner due to recalls and repairs. From what I can tell, it has all the proper recall items, the rear air space is clear, and does not have any obvious issues. The freezer does get cold, but the refrigerator rarely gets below 45 degrees. Being in Texas, our outside air is pretty regularly in the high 90s so suppose it is possible it just cannot get cold due to how hot it is outside.

We are typically connected to power or have the generator running, even when driving down the road. Simply to hot to not have the basement AC going. We are at times, of course, not connected to power (such as when staying overnight at a Walmart or similar) and if cool enough we do not run the generator all night. We still have the original Domestic inverter (modified sign wave) and three standard 12 volt deep cycle house batteries.

Looking for thoughts on this. For those of you in the hot south, have you found a way to get your RV refrigerator to stay at a safe cold temperature? For those of you who have switched to a residential unit, are you happy?

Not looking to debate one or the other, simply looking for some positive guidance.

I'm cracking myself up right now imagining Motor Homes driving down the highways, being chased by lawyers trying to get them to pull over just so they can ask them: "Are you happy with your Motor Home?  Do you want to sue the manufacturer?"
