We use a mail forwarding service, America's Mailbox in South Dakota.  They hold our mail until we notify them online when and where to forward it.

Have you checked out mail forwarding services? FMCA.com and Good Sam offers such a service. I have never used it but it sounds good as long as you plan on staying a one location for a few days.

We lived in a fairly rural area where everyone knew their mail carrier and post office staff by first name.  Our carrier told us to do what Barry-Sue mentioned.  We were hesitant at first but no problems occurred.   Our carriers sorted their own mail and disposed of the weekly circulars with our permission.   That did cut down on the amount they had to hold.

I certainly understand  larger city post offices might have to adhere to the 30 day limit but may have an alternative suggestion.

Thanks for all the input, some good ideas.  We'll be taking to our Post Office, as we live in a very rural area and just lost our mail carrier of 30 years and don't know who will be the replacement.  Of course, part of the idea for being able to travel is to see our kids and grandkids who live 800 miles away.  It seems like a lot of work to put on our wonderful neighbors who live a mile away.  Seeing what the Post Office will do is the best idea.

Thanks again to all of our wonderful forum members.

You make a very good point Gail.  Some post offices and/or carriers can be very accommodating.  It is surely worth asking the question.

While at the factory picking up my 2351 after some work, Bob went to fill the water tank for us and found it wouldn't fill the tank. They replaced the valve. He told us that we should not change the position of the valve when it is under pressure. There are o'rings inside the valve that can be damaged when the selector is moved under pressure. I have done so since and have not had any problems since. Just food for thought.

Ron you might want to watch the video. Earl explains it.
Got it Tom...Thanks!  Earl talks about it 28:30 minutes into the video.  That is quite a nice feature.

I know in the past, a few PC owners had trouble with the check valve on either end, not sealing properly.  When on city water, the check valve at the on-board pump would leak, overfilling the fresh water tank.  When using on-board water, the check valve at the city water connection would seep.  I have been fortunate so far not to have either check valve get stuck yet, but figure my luck will eventually run out.

This newer method seems to eliminate that issue along with the additional filling convenience. ThumbsUp

Have you talked to your local post office?  They may be wiling to hold it for you longer then the 30 days.  Fortunately my sister lives on the same block as we do so she takes in our mail.  I too feel it is an imposition and talked to our mail carrier.  He told me to fill out more then one mail hold and he would submit it for us every 30 days.  I haven't tried that yet and would feel more comfortable talking to the local post master and see how they could accommodate us.

We are gone three months at a time and I do not miss any bills.  Those that need to be paid via US Mail (because I can't trust auto payment with them) I generally make copies of a prior statement, address envelopes, call them for the current amount and then mail as necessary.

We have a service that visits the house once a week to water plants check for leaks etc. they also pick up and hold our mail. We used to have a neighbor pick up the mail and water the plants but after a while that seemed like an imposition and the service is pretty inexpensive and very professional. We switched as many of our routine bills to auto pay or e-bill and the house sitting service will forward the first class mail when we request it.
