Angry Address Troubles

I have been full-timing since June of this year. I sold my sticks and brick home and contents. I set up mail forwarding with MyDakotaAddress in Madison, SD. I traveled to SD in July and got a SD driver's license, registered to vote and I am claiming SD as my domicile.
I am constantly running into issues over my address. The most recent problem is with US Bank. My son is a freshman in college and the university he attends has US Bank on campus. We both attempted to open accounts last week. I thought this would be convenient as I would be able to easily transfer funds to him if necessary. Today I received a call from US Bank informing me that my address is not acceptable as it is a business address. I was told that I could/should use a relative's address instead. I am not willing to do this as I do not want any mail going to a relative and I am concerned that using an address in a state other than SD could cause questions about my domicile.
My questions are:
Have other full timers had problems with their address? If not, what mail service do you use?
This is just one problem I have had, there have been plenty.

The USPS has a mail forwarding service, https://www.usps.com/manage/forward.htm maybe this would work but it isn't cheap.

The mail forwarding isn't the issue, MyDakotaAddress has done a fine job. The issue is the actual address. When the address is entered in some "systems", such as US Bank's, it is rejected as an unacceptable address. The person I spoke with at US Bank informed me that due to the Patriot Act, I must use an address that has a physical location that I could live at, but later suggested that I use a PO Box .

You might want to look at the rv-dreams.com fourm. Howard has addressed domicile several times. Go to RV-Dreams Community Forum and use the search function for "domicile"

I have a PO Box where I have UPS and FedEx deliver my packages. The physical address is for the PO proper with my box number added in. No one except the PO knows I'm using a box.
