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 …

RVing on the Gulf Coast Ferry System

In ten years of full-time RVing, we’d only taken our motorhome aboard a ferry twice before, on a round-trip sailing from Horseshoe Bay in Vancouver, Canada to Gibsons, on British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast. That trip, on a huge 450-foot-long BC Ferries vessel, took about 45 minutes each way and was very expensive for the RV, …

Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone

Mention Yellowstone National Park, and most people probably think of Old Faithful. While we love the geyser basins, our favorite part of the park might be just a little less famous: the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. This spectacular canyon and its two powerful waterfalls seem more accessible to us than the more well-known “Grand …

Rocket Science Ice Cream — Liquid Nitrogen! — Nappanee, IN — Newmar Country Treat!

We’re serious ice cream fans. Seriously. Big. Fans. Suffice it to say that we’re on a first name basis with both Ben and Jerry. We’re also partial to Cold Stone Creamery and Culver’s Custard too. One nice thing about RVing is that we get to discover lots of hidden gems in many far-flung places. We’re …

RVing At Devils Tower National Monument

We never travel near Northeastern Wyoming without stopping to hike around one of our favorite (and most accessible) natural wonders – Devils Tower. It’s a great place to camp and one of the best bang-for-the-hiking-buck spots we know. It’s hard to find places where you can see something so dramatic without much walking required. Devils …

Changing the Oil in Your Car

  Of course this video isn’t just for RVers. 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. Changing the oil in your toad (that’s “towed” car for you non-RVers) is a quick and …
