Welcome from Huntsville, AL. Congratulations on going fulltime! I hope you do enjoy the freedom this lifestyle will give you.

Here are a few resources for you to check out at fulltimers:

www.escapees.com
www.rv-dreams.com
www.gonewiththewynns.com

For your Black/Gray tank drain problems, sounds like you could use a macerator. This little number should do the trick!

Welcome! Your story is a bit similar to our story- we launched on a "1 year trip of fulltiming" back in June. We weren't sure if this is a permanent thing or temporary thing and kept the house because of it. Like you, we are renting it out. Since we are traveling, we opted to use a property management company. For 1 month's rent + 10%, we get the peace of mind that someone else is handling all aspects of the rental. After about 4 1/2 months, we have no plan on stopping at our pre-planned stopping date.

The links that BamaBob provided are good, another that is dedicated specifically to families who fulltime is:
Fulltime Families | The Resource for your Family's Full Time RV Adventures and Aspirations

We have joined their Facebook groups and have gone to a rally. Going to a rally was amazingly helpful in us being able to connect with other families like us.

You can follow my family on my blog at:
Now Or Never - an RV Tale

It's not as up to date as I'd like, but I do regularly upload photos to Flickr at:

Hi! New, Full-time, Family of 4

Everyone thank you for the great info!! My hubby, Rick, was thrilled to know we could buy this disposal thing to fix our problem as he was preparing to re-pipe things underneath!! He'd much prefer this!! 😄 I never thought we'd have to put so much consideration into where and how we dispose of our "waste"!! Thanks again!

Nati,

I believe it is a Bridgeport milling machine, not your common ordinary drill press.

p.s. I've wanted one for many years and haven't found one I could afford.

Looks like a temp sensor for the AC. Do you have 2 zone AC?
