One thing that ruins my day is going to the tax collectors office. I think they hate me!��

I disagree with you on this one. I think letting it sit till it needs a jump is the wrong way to go. Sitting is not good for any engine.
Go ask the heavy diesel mechanic that question.

I pull my batteries from anything that won't get used for a few month's in winter, or I charge them with my 120 volt charger.

I got sick of replacing batteries every winter in everything I owned. The smaller the battery, the faster winter kills them.

"cold" starting where I and the OP are means around 60 degrees Fahrenheit just so you know.

I wonder if my bus never leaves Fl- Would my radiator shutters remain open forever?

Ouch. Rubbing it in? I think our friends to the north are fighting multi-feet of snow. Its no wunder record numbers are moving to FL from the New York area. Can't blame them. Its why my wife agreed this is the time to build the bus, sell the house while homes are selling in 2-3 days and plan to see far away places when things warm up.

Most "refugees" in my area have the Michigan or Ohio tags.
If my house goes up in value in the next year I may just forego renting out and simply sell it.
I could buy some property, and some buses!

Yeah, we once considered property farther south, Sebring, Ft. Pierce, etc. but there ain't no place to run anymore where the northerners and islanders can't find you. I need a sign "shotgun in one hand and banjo in the other - strangers welcome".

Most everybody I know moved to Tennessee or northeast Georgia. Now they are getting hit by the overgrowth too.
