Boondocking it!

Learning all kinds of terms of late. Residency, Domicile etc. 

I currently reside, domicile, live in Montana. I am a "Full Time RV'r " With no address. YIIKES!!! I guess that can be an issue with the governments. 

I would love to stay a resident of Montana but, I see most people change to a more friendly "residency" state like SD, FL, and TX. I want to keep my wife's plates on this MH (since she picked out the picture) and I…

Motor home dead.

Oh, Man. I got to the end of the block this morning and :( . Stopped and Won't start back up. Saw some fuel coming from the fuel pump so I replaced it. Works great but, still won't start. Now, I don't see a spark at all. Have power to the coil when ignition is on. 

Any ideas?

1980 Dodge sportsman Motor Home

We just looked at an interesting Motor Home. Looks like it will run out good and interior is very usable and price is excellent ($500) . But, the tires are very old and it hasn't been run long time for about 10 yrs.

I suspect it will need 6 new tires and wheels probably. 8.00 x 16 LTS . Does anyone know what would be the best tire / wheel combo? And, maybe best cost?

First post

I'm not sure how you have this all set up here. But, I just thought I had better say


I am looking around for a used RV that I can hopefully get running and use by August. I have experience with RV's but, I have a hard time remembering things ever since surgeries. And anyhow, never hurts to see what others think.

I need to start looking through all the stuff here and see what's…
