Q: My landlord said his RV he's renting me is illegal. I believe laws are being broken with illegal thing, power sewer&more

The RV septic connected to the other RV septic that connects to the main house. It fills up and sewer runs under the RV below. I never see a power meter man come read my meter and he chooses to charge me anything over 50 bucks used. How does he know how much I should pay just by looking at my meter. Does the other 2 meters say the same as mine. He told me to make it as if no one live's here due to it not being legal? He has the RV set up with its own power meter and sewer, why would he say that? What's not legal? I never get rent receipts when I pay my rent. Anytime something needs fixed I have to pay for it and fix it my self, he just takes it off my rent. The propane water heater sits outside on the ground next to the RV it blew out a buck of black stuff all over the RV like it caught fire, supposed to be replaced he never did. The propane tanks he had for the RV are expired. Bathroom floor caved in. Lot off time there's no watet. The toilet keeps backing up and won't flush.

A: You may well have claims against your landlord but you will need to review it all with a local landlord-tenant attorney to know for sure and exactly what. The obvious solution, however, is for you to simply move - something you are likely going to have to do before long anyway if your set up truly is illegal.
