RV Refrigerator Failures — Removing an RV Fridge Without Removing the Windshield

We’ve had our second RV, our 2005 Newmar Mountain Aire, for 15 years, and consider ourselves lucky that it’s held up so well (with a lot of RVgeeks TLC, of course ????).

Goodbye to FLAKING RV PAINT! Roof Radius & End Cap Re-Painting.

Our RV has suffered from a fairly common problem for years. Slowly but surely, the clear coat on our RV’s roof radius has been flaking off, making the top edge of our poor rig look like it has leprosy. We originally thought we might be able to stave off a more major repair by sanding …

Toad Headlight Hygiene — Does Toothpaste Actually Work?

Being dragged around by the nose behind a huge RV for over 13 years doesn’t do much to keep your face clean. Add to that a healthy dose of sun poisoning in the Desert Southwest most winters, and you can understand why our poor little Honda’s eyes have glazed over. If you saw our original …

RV Basement Door Lift Springs Prevent Headaches!

I’m not a mathematician, but I’ve learned that RV + Tall + Bald = Headaches. I swear, over the years I’ve hit my head on just about every conceivable low spot on our motorhome.

Annual RV Maintenance & Spring Cleaning

When you’re full-time RVing in many different locations, the seasons often get confused, especially when you’re a snowbird.

Keep Mosquitoes Away… Without Bug Repellent!

Like most RVers, we love the outdoors. But when the mosquitoes fly, we hate having to cover ourselves with slimy, smelly, or even toxic (for products containing DEET) insect repellent. Citronella candles and other repellents don’t seem to work much better and those expensive mosquito magnets seem to draw them in from all over the …

How To Repair RV Power Door Locks

Most RVs are equipped with lockable outside storage compartments, including our first motorhome, a 2002 Fleetwood Bounder Diesel.

We got so tired of locking and unlocking compartments, that we put “Power …
