I slipped a buddy $100 to help me run 75' of Romex for 50A service next to my garage. Even when it's 110 out, I can fire up both ACs and do whatever work I need to do. Neighbor doesn't care if I'm up tinkering way past midnight. I get bored if I don't have something to work on. I've been known to break stuff so I have something to do.

Not a problem here, 3.5 acres. Built a covered pad with 50 amp power and water attached to my 1200 sf workshop. I understand not keeping it a home if you don't have the room but, if you can, it's just to convenient to have it at home to clean and maintain.

Am I lucky ? You bet I am.
No choice not to hate you, you have your RV in your garage. Hadn't thought about that until you brought it up. I think the only way for me to get the DW to approve that remodel would be if a tree feel on our garage. I wonder if she would notice the chain saw cut????

I can't use the excuse of using as a guest house since we have the pool house. I'm going to use the security argument. It needs to be at the house where we can keep and eye on it.

We have 1.5 acres but she has landscaped every inch and is not going to want to see a poll barn set up, besides I think city ordinances hold me to one out building and I use that putting in the pool house.

Already have the 50 amp service and water hooks ups, just need to move the sewer line closer.

The cheapest inside storage with heat that is reasonably close to us is $200.00 monthly. I think thats a bit steep. I like the inside storage for obvious reasons but $200.00 is real money. Not to mention not being able to tinker. Like a previous poster said, it's better at home with all your tools handy.

Feeling pretty brave about demanding the DW let me keep it at home but I'm currently in AK and she is in Ohio. Not nearly as brave when we are in the same state.

When we built our place a motor home pad next to the garage was part of the plan. Our motor home garage has 30amp, sewer dump and I hook the water hose on the outside of the garage "pass-thru" if I need water. The motor home is now 12 years old (bought new in July 1999) and we want it to last.

Costs me $320 per month to store my RV.

Well, that's not quite the exact truth. I live in a Sr. community & the $320 per month also includes all charges associated with living there, including real estate taxes, maintenance, (both inside & outside) lawn care, snow & trash removal, etc. Am also fortunate that I am able to park RV in a gated & fenced yard at no additional cost. Overall, not a bad deal.

What really stinks about this is we had our power go out thanks to some one doing maintenance in Yuma, day before yesterday. We had no way to get in our storage lot to get our RV or any thing we had for survival gear in it. I have a back up battery for my Bi-Pap Machine which really would help having it at home. (we went and got it out of the RV yesterday afternoon) So now it's another item we need to carry back and forth to the RV.

I would buy a spare one but they are a little expensive. I already have two spare Bi-Pap Machines one in the RV and one we carry back and forth. The only problem with that is my extra machine that I had bought for in the RV is now being used here at home because one of my machines developed a bad whining noise. So it was sent in for repair and it's not back yet that was almost 6 months ago now.

I think maybe I better call them on Monday.

I've heard stories about those people. I would never live anywhere that had an HOA. Give someone a little power and they take advantage of it.

I can't begin to imagine how bad it would go for a neighbor who tried to tell me what I could or couldn't do on my property. I do know it wouldn't be a good day for them.
Too many rules and governing bodies in the world now. Certainly wouldn't sign up for more.

My sentiments exactly. I would really hate to have to store my RV in a lot somewhere. I don't have hook-ups or a building to put it in, but I hope to one day.

I live in a HOA; been here over 40 years; been fighting with them for over 40 years; when I had my house built there wasn't a HOA.
The management firm sent a rep down to my house about a month ago, he said that most homeowners don't care one way or the other if I had a motorhome parked beside my home; there was just one or two that are complaining, as far as he and most of the folks that live here, they could care less about the motorhome. It's always the couple of people with nothing to do that cause problems for everyone.
