Hello everybody!
Many thanks for your previos replies.......Today I went to the local post office and I was
in for a very unususal surprise.When I turned in a change of address card I was told that they could not
do it,because we live in a "One Point Deliver",in other words a bunch of mail is delivered to the rv park,
and then a manager or the person in charge sorts the mail out and place it in the proper slot.
Has anyone gone thru the same experience?The post office suggested to have the person who sortes out the
mail to place a written change of address on each of my mail,and then send them to the Escapees forwarding
mail address.I'm very confused and concern,never had this problem before,and some of my inportant papers
may get lost in the process.Is there a way out?did you find a solution to this problem.........
I'm looking forward to your very informative replies........
Happy Bird Day!!!!!!araucano.

The USPS does have some rules that are not always "user friendly" from we RVer's viewpoint...

Let's clearly understand your situation first...
- You have an Escapees address and are now trying to establish it as your address
- BUT, you still have some mail going to the "one point deliver" address, and you need to get that mail forwarded to your new Escapees address.

If that is an accurate description of your situation, it sounds like the solution would be to contact the senders directly to change your address to the Escapees address. And talk with the RV park about how they can handle forwarding items to you that come there. If that's how the USPS handles that address location, the RV park has had to deal with the problem before.

AND, if it were me, I would MAIL a change of address card to the Postmaster at that zip code, and DO NOT check the box on the card that says "this change applies to all recipients at this address."

My stick house address changed from a rural route to an E-911 address and it was a pain. I notified as many places as I could and managed to deal with it over the course of a year.

I would change my address with as many places as possible (especially any you expect to send "important papers") and I would print up a bunch of mailing labels to leave at the campground...make it easy for them to help you out.

Thank you,AFChap and rjf7g!
It sure did help a lot,we're printing some labels which will facilitate for the person sorting the mail out by not writing to every institution.araucano

Change of address

I learned this from the postmaster; If you have mail delivered to a campground be sure it has your specific site number in your address. Without the specific site number you are at the mercy of the campground to forward your mail and the post office will NOT accept a change of address. If your address includes your site number the post office WILL accept a change of address and will forward your mail before it goes to the campground. Just a little FYI for all full-timers!

The Park manager is acting like a postal "Sub Station" or "Box Station" and is thus the post office where you file your change of address..

At least, that is "in effect" This is actually fairly common

Which is why it is much better to use a mail forwarding service and not the rv park.

We had the problem when we changed from one mail forwarding service to another one.
I kept the old one for about six months so we had some overlap. We had the old forwarder send any mail we got to the new one. We contacted every one we got mail from. Still missed a few though.
