Safe RV Drinking Water Update, Lab Testing & Acuva Water Purifier Giveaway!

1/31/18 LIVE CHAT Follow Up: Avoiding Overpass Crashes

Our last video was a stark reminder of the critical importance of knowing your RV’s height, and how to avoid turning it into a convertible under a low overpass.

Overpass Crash?! How Tall Is Your RV?

Have you ever been driving your RV, come to an overpass, weren’t sure of the clearance, slowed down… then drove under it anyway? If so, you certainly know, in hindsight, that slowing down doesn’t make your RV shorter. When I used to transform bus driver trainees into professional motorcoach operators, there were lots of overpasses …

Boondocking Resource Management: Perishable Food

Boondocking (camping off the grid) has become so popular, that information about managing power and water resources has cropped up everywhere. But what about perishable food?

Replacing An RV Faucet — Your Options Aren’t Limited!

But some RV plumbing systems can be a little different than a house, so we’ve made a step-by-step tutorial showing exactly how we did the job. Last month marked 12 years …

RV Snowbird Fail? Managing Short RV Trips To Winter Climates

Despite the name, the term “Winter Snowbirds” generally involves neither winter nor snow. Since we love warm weather, becoming Snowbirds each winter was one of the main reasons we started RVing. But that doesn’t mean we always avoid cold weather and snow. Sometimes there are considerations other than weather for choosing a route or destination. Five …

Hydraulic RV Jack Fail!! Four Lessons Learned… The Hard Way.

You’d think after full-timing for nearly 14 years, we’d know everything, right? But we’re always learning, which means making mistakes sometimes.
