Spouse insurance

I'm looking for information about an insurance policy that will provide a driver for my RV in the event I die unexpectedly. The DW cannot tow the TT, she can barely drive the Silverado:)

I live in Mobile AL. When parked we run an Eva-Dry dehumidifier 24/7. Try cracking one or two windows when running the heat. You also may want to travel with an appropriately sized dehumidifier.

Plugged in

We have always left our TT's plugged in while parked in our driveway. We also run a EVA-DRY de-humidifier in it. No problems, ever. We've done it with our R-POD and now our Micro-Lite.
