    Ruidoso, NM RV campgrounds

    The Best place is on Airport Road “Ruidoso Motor Coach Ranch”. It is Class A only and nice views... Nice hosts.
  2. We are looking to take our 45’ MH to Yellowstone National Park in the Fall of 2020. I know it is too large to park inside Yellowstone so we will be making reservations at Grizzly RV Park in West Yellowstone. We haven’t made the reservations yet and there will be 2 other MH’s same size traveling with us. I would like to learn from some of you who have made the trip and hear your recommendations. Thank you in advance.

    Best Domicile?

    Thanks for the info. I think if you are on the road more than 50% of the time you can change to domicile to places like SD, TX, or any other place for that matter. I had heard overall SD is the least expensive but just checking around.

    Best Domicile?

    I’ve been trying to figure out the best domicile to claim. We are not Full timers but close. We still want to maintain our home but will be in our RV somewhere between 50-75% of the time traveling around the US. It seems the 3 best places to take advantage of their state laws (legally) are Texas, South Dakota, and Florida. I would like to get some feedback from those with more experience than myself. We have just retired and ready to experience the US. Our state of NM is seriously considering raising just about every tax that one can imagine. It will not be the most afordable place to be retired in.

    Single Phase Electrical in Coaches, Why?

    It is a 50 amp all electric coach. 2800 watt inverter 10,000 watt generator. Residential refrigerator.
  6. With my questions you can tell I’m a neophyte. I’m trying to learn all I can about my coach. It is a 2014 Mountain Aire. I see on the silver leaf AC is single phase and automatic. Where can I go to learn more about what all this means. What is load shed? Should it be on Automatic all the time?... Anyway, I would appreciate any advice. Thanks.

    Global Solar Flexible solar panals.

    Thank you Rich. Reading about them sounds like a new generation of solar panels. I had also heard the downside was the heat generated on the roof. Just curious of any 1st hand experience with users.
  8. The 2019 Newmar Motor Homes are offering Four 100 watt Global Solar Flexible solar panals as an option. Does anyone have any experience using these particular solar panals. Thanks!

    Montana License

    I just got my bill from Montana to license my Motorhome. They just jumped to $800 if the MH was 10 years old or less and had a purchase price of at least $300K. Has anyone else experienced this?
  10. I have a 2014 Newmar Mountain Air with AutoMotion dual shades. Like most things I like the product when it works and they are a pain when they quit working. I’ve already had to replace 1 which was the driver side at $600 for the part and several hundred more for the labor to replace. It seems it should be a simple replacement of a $50 motor to just slip in and replace the old one. Any ideas on how to go about fixing this without having to pay $1000? It is my passenger window just behind the door and is the Night Shade.
  11. I’m thinking about traveling to the Jackson Hole area and would like some feedback about RV camping in that area. We have a 45’er and wold like to hear from those who have been there. Thanks

    Solar For 2014 44’ Mountain Aire

    I do dry camp. Just curious as to what kind of expense I’m looking at.
  14. I have a 2014 Mountain Aire all electric coach. It has 8 AGM House Batteries and a 2800 watt inverter. I’m a neophyte regarding solar and wondering about what it would take to augment my system with solar panels. Any ideas as to where to go to learn more about this?
