Watdog Alert

04 March 2024

Greetings all!!

 It is wonderful to create a Watchdog as an update with no action needed on your part!!  It is very long with lots of information and hope it is helpful.

 First, a big THANK YOU to all of you who participated in activity to support this year’s FMO legislation!  You know who you are and you really made a difference in the process!  In the first House subcommittee the Democratic Ranking Member told our House sponsor he was glad to finally get to vote on her bill because he could go and clear his emails…he had received over 1,100 requests for support of the bill!!  That is amazing, folks!  Good Job! You really define the term "People Power."


16 January 2024

Senate Bill 1140, (Senator Colleen Burton, Senate District 12, part of Polk). has been introduced and referred to Senate Committees.  This bill is the comanion to House Bill 613, although they were not identical when they were filed. Out bill sponssors are working to create a compromise so that the bills can advance.


News & Information


20th February 2021

Greetings Pine Lakes Homeowners.

As your new Federation of Manufactured Homeowners (FMO) representative, I, Ron Thoreson am determined to make it my goal to keep you informed of any and all issues you, as a manufactured home owner may need to know about. One way is to post on this website current issues surrounding FMO

For those of you who are members, I and FMO thank you.  For those who are not, I strongly encourage you to join with your neighbors in support of FMO as one of your manufactured homeowner’s advocacy, action and protection organizations. 

To learn more about FMO and to join, simply go to and fill out the new members form.  FMO works for YOU, the manufactured home owner!   You can also contact me at the information below to join.

Currently, FMO has 1 statewide “Watchdog” alert and locally, in Pine Lakes, by the HOA with consulting from FMO, 1 notice has been placed in the mail tubes around ALL our development, and another one (now revised to include both HOA meetings) has been placed around the Leased Land properties of Pine Lakes.

These 3 items are attached to this notification and for your information.

To access  the three attachments click on your choice of documents:

1,  FMO Watchdog current issue

2.  Pine Lakes Notification

3.  Pine Lakes Revised Meeting Notification

For more information, contact me.


Thank you for your time.

As Always and Sincerely I am,


Ron Thoreson                                           

Pine Lakes Federation of Manufactured Homeowners Representative

Please remember:  Without your support, there wouldn't be an FMO. 

Dues are only $25 annually - a mere $.48 cents per week.  For your $25, you have a lobbyist in Tallahassee, thousands of fellow mobile/manufactured home owners who watch out for each other, people who will train, advise, and supply your HOA with the many forms and information it needs to operate your park.

For your $25, you get the FMO News, the official member magazine of the FMO, six (6) times each year. Inside you find out about what is going on across the state that may affect you. For your $25, you have people who watch for changes in legislation that can hurt or help you. In short, for your $25 you have a whole organization of people who work behind the scenes to preserve your lifestyle. If the dues were $50 or even $75 a year, the FMO would still be a bargain.

Please consider joining the FMO so it can continue the great work it's doing for you!
