RE: Refrigerator temp

In central Florida I'm seeing about 35F in the wee hours of the night and 45F in the afternoon. It's been working that way in summer for the past eight years.

RE: Fiat 500 for flat towing questions

Where did you run that line inside?

RE: Fiat 500 for flat towing questions

Only the manual-transmission Fiat is flat-towable. The key isn't needed for the steering. The lighter/accessory outlet is switched by ACC. You could jumper the breaker to make it always live, run a new wire to an outlet or use an accessory battery pack. The Fiat forum folks appear to believe the jumpering the breaker won't blow up anything but no one's actually done it. I'll do that when I get around to installing the brake. I'm legal without braking but I intend to go with a RVI Brake. I have a Roadmaster air brake rig I used on the Tracker but it won' t work with the Fiat, and it's kind of an overall kludge anyway.

RE: voting and driver license issues with full time

Did Capital One kick out a Rainbow Drive domicile address? A place that you could actually life at? So people that reside at the park wouldn't be accepted as Capital One customers?

Escapees address?

RE: voting and driver license issues with full time

Merrill wouldn't accept it, no way, even after I had been a customer for years and was simply changing the address. One Amex account accepted it, and one wouldn't. I gave up on the second and simply continued to use the existing address...which was a PMB (UPS Store). Chase apparently didn't care. It doesn't matter if you put apt or whatever if it shows up as a commercial mail facility.

RE: voting and driver license issues with full time

The camel in the tent that you didn't ask about is that financial institutions are unlikely to accept a PMB address.

RE: Fish bowl cooling class A

I read "fishbowl" in the rv forums at least 10 years ago, perhaps this one.

RE: NC Florida to Montgomery

Capital City RVP out east might work for you, nice place.

RE: Are damage deposits at parks customary?

I've never heard of it until now in 13 years fulltiming. I wouldn't do it.

RE: Storms and Tornados

Don't be up in Dixie Alley before June 1; stay south of I-10 and east of I-95. And the same goes for the classic Tornado Alley. If an outbreak is forecast, go south and/or east. In the past two outbreaks _three days_ warning was given, plenty of time to move to avoid the weather. This of course applies to travelers, not stationary people. Stationary RVers might want to rethink where they are. If you can move, there's really no excuse.

RE: Any option for re-filling MH Propane Tank from Small Tank?

Residential and "recreational" propane are priced differently; that's probably what's going on.

RE: Dollar General grocery?

I read an interview several years ago with the CEO of Dollar General / Family Dollar; he clearly stated that his strategy for competing with Walmart was to put a dollar store on every corner. Looks like he's succeeding.

RE: Dollar General grocery?

Instacart now delivers from Family Dollar. Odd but makes sense.

RE: CG in Central FL With Golf Cart Access to Stores

Cypress is 1.2 miles west of US-27 on FL-540. This is the southeast corner of the city..Actual downtown is a few miles northwest. It's 16 miles south of I-4 and about 42 miles east of I-75. Uber is a good alternative to a car in the area.

RE: CG in Central FL With Golf Cart Access to Stores

Cypress CG in Winter Haven is next to Walmart, has specific off-street golf cart access to Walmart, a bank and other shops. Some CG residents work at Walmart. Also, in that area, deliveries are available from Walmart, Winn-Dixie, Publix, Aldi, CVS and ABC Liquors. We're a bit west of Winter Haven across US-27; we haven't been inside a supermarket since March 2020.

RE: GC2 which?

Thanks guys!

RE: GC2 which?

I'm looking at Batteries Plus; Duracell is $89 while the same at Sam's is $89 (+ membership). The Crown 220Ah is $125 at Batteries Plus. I'll probably go with Duracell. I'm good about taking care of batteries. Thanks!

GC2 which?

Looking at readily-available and fairly inexpensive Duracell and Crown GC2 batteries, same price and AH ratings, Crown is a couple of pounds lighter. Which to buy and why? Lithium isn't feasible right now. Previous batteries were a pair of Grp 27 12v Interstates which died after six years. Thanks!
