Headlight Restoration: Bringing Clarity to Cloudy Lenses

Twelve years ago this week, on April 11, 2003, we hit the road full time. A few months earlier, we’d purchased our flat-towable Honda CR-V specifically for that purpose. Repeated exposure to harsh Desert SW sunshine and spending most of your life facing into the rear end of a diesel pusher are apparently not the …

Motorhome Block Heaters — Not Just For Winter Use!

Does your RV have a block heater? Do you only RV where it’s mostly above freezing, so you never use it? Maybe you should sometimes. Since a block heater is designed primarily for helping an engine start in extremely cold conditions, many people never use theirs, even if their motorhome is equipped with one. But …

Our RV Windshield Screens Are Driving Us Batty!

We love our RV’s windshield screens. On hot, sunny days, the large front and side windows on a motorhome can radiate an intense amount of heat into the RV’s interior. Windshield screens make a huge difference, keeping us a lot cooler inside, especially when we’re boondocking (when we rarely use the A/C). Any RVer spending …

Keeping Oil Off Your RV’s Toad (Towed Car)

If your RV is a diesel pusher like ours, and you sometimes find small specks of oil on the front of your toad (towed car), there’s a little black tube under the engine that just might be the source. It’s a part of the crankcase ventilation system commonly known as the breather tube (some mechanics …

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. Since our basement doors had no central locking mechanism, we got used to carrying the keys whenever we were working outside around the RV. We got so tired of locking and unlocking compartments, that we put “Power …

While there are lots of inexpensive quick-oil-change places around, performing this task ourselves is right in line with our general preference for maintaining all of our own equipment whenever possible.
