Have also heard to put foam board, or a wool blanket, or something under your mattress. Also, reflectix on windows and on the outside walls of your cabinets. Helps in both hot and cold temps. Leave a vent open a bit and you may need a dehumidifier. Good luck!

A fellow on another forum put reflectix on the out side of the windows claiming it would damage the dual pane windows if on the inside.
There's 2 problems for me with his idea, #1 it would look like total crap from the outside, #2 my DW would NEVER allow me to turn it into a cave inside with NO natural light. If there was a 3rd, I don't think it would damage the windows or make a noticeable difference in the temps.

My wife would never let me cover all of the windows and make it like a cave either.

Now, as for insurance and warranties....... Don't ask/don't tell is probably a better program for RV's, eh???? YMMV

Here's the deal to me, if that means a whit.

Don't ask don't tell? That phrase just bugs me. Is it or ain't it, as the question used to be. Go with that.

I was asked about how much time I would spend in my trailer when getting insurance; I told them I had no idea; I would not, could not live in it full time but had ZERO idea how much I would use it but probably less than 6 mos. a year - honest, factual. They did, at that time, mention some sort of differences for a "full time" user - I wasn't concerned. They had some sort of pricing/exclusions if I recall based on the amount of usage - I don't care.

I'm not sure how/why anyone that full times tries to hood wink the insurance companies to cut some expense....while not telling the truth. Failing to tell the truth, trying to "shade" reality is just a way to get caught in a terrible place somewhere in the future. I have tried that in the past...I have paid far more than anything I could have hoped to save. I have had family members that thought that was/should be a way of life to "get ahead" quicker than others; to cheat the system. They, every one, WISH they could have had a life of just owning up, telling the truth and pay for what you should as you go.

Not trying to judge, point fingers or anything else. I just believe we all should pay the price of whatever we are doing as we go, because....in the end you will pay that price one way or the other. And, as another poster mentioned, if you have enough "stuff" to worry about, get an umbrella policy...just don't skimp/lie on the declarations - it could cost you a fortune.

Edit: Not meant at your post particularly John, just the thought as you mention with a ? mark. Danny in the previous post had brought this point out as I recall.

Danny and Danny,

I didn't and don't consider your posts as being "aimed toward any person in particular". I suppose we're all speaking in generalities without pointing fingers. I agree with you Danny (sourdough) about trying to stay one step ahead of "bilking the system".... It seldom works, at least for me and I would rather just pay my share and keep moving forward.

Whether it's "fudging on towing overweight", making declarations about RV living arrangements or any host of other things that come to mind, seems easier to just fess up and do the right thing. Works for me, others may not agree, that's OK too......

Years ago when I added my last trailer to our insurance, I don't recall being asked any questions about usage. They just wanted to know year, make, and model. Same deal when I switched to our current trailer earlier this year.

I'm guessing the state/region/weather where each person lives may change the info required.

I'm not saying I was trying to cheat the system, get out of paying what's owed or lying out anything as I've also learned those lessons long ago, but I've also learned to NEVER volunteer information in some of those situations, if asked a direct question I'll tell. The "extended vacation" comment was brought up, as I stated, by my agent not me. There's only one reason he brought it up, he was about to lose business/money as he stated they don't cover fulltime rvs.
