    SSA Direct Deposit Scam Change on My Account Today

    Nothing bogus or phising about this original email from SSA notifying me that my email access to SSA had been ended "at my request".

    I am thinking most of the hours of each day should be above freezing. Hopefully you can use your hose connection at those times.

    Should I remove AC for roof cover

    Mine was done by RV professionals without removing the AC unit. I think with all the painting stuff going on, you don't need another complication of removing the heavy AC top unit at the same time. Do the AC gasket some other time.

    Fridge power shutoff?

    Heartland RV Customer Service

    Mortalis: The anti siphon valve breaking and flooding the trailer has been a known problem for a LONG time. I believe it is due to the plastic valve not being able to tolerate high water pressures (I am sure that is why mine broke). The instruction sheet from B&B molders has warnings to the...
