Living far enough out of town, no one will deliver, and it would be cold by the time you got it home, even if you picked it up yourself.

For desert......they smile while driving back home in their RV.
Besides.....have you seen the price of gas lately?
I like this idea, good for the RV, good for the business and the couple gets a chance to get out of the house for a while, safely. Seems like a win all the way around.

Our motorhome will sit until this pandemic calms down. I dont want to be the non esential clown who calls the essential tow truck driver who is out there for the essential truckers to come tow me because i just had to exercise my pile of metal during a national emergency.

I know that it does not hurt a DP to sit, but feel that it is better to take it out for a spin and keep everything lubricated, batteries fully charged etc.


Besides that, it is just fun and it got us out of the house for a nice ride down the road!!!
OP here. I took mine out yesterday. Ran great and I also enjoyed getting out for a few minutes. Closest I got to a person was one in sitting in the passenger seat of a low slung sports car what went by me on the interstate doing at least 100mph. Defintely noticed that, with so few vehicles on the road, people are driving a lot faster.

I was pointing out that there is a blocking feature which you can access by clicking on the avatar (picture) of the offending poster, and then click on the 3 dots. Their posts will then be hidden from you, but you will have the option of seeing them if you so choose.

Take a chill-pill! Everyone is under stress during this pandemic. My neighbor is a good friend,and I noticed last week I'm treating him differently than 2 months ago. Now we have to get within talking distance for me to apologize to him for my actions, emails don't suffice, or convey emotion.

Letís seeÖ I didnít attack anyone or make snarky comments as others have done. I didnít make any false claims or go on a major rant. As far as I can tell, I wrote nothing that could be construed as offensive.
I did remind people of a feature of the forum where they keep the posts of a chosen person from showing up. This feature , which someone must have felt was needed, in no way prevents anyone from posting. It just hides the posts of whomever you choose, which can still be seen if desired by clicking on it.
I truly fail to see why you are telling me to ďTake a chill-pill!Ē
Stressful times, indeed.
