In a blog post a couple of days ago titled The Best Laid Plans, I wrote that the coach (starting) batteries in our motorhome needed replacing, and that the Lifeline AGM house batteries had dropped very low from phantom loads while the RV has been parked in our community’s storage yard for the last few […]

I’m surprised at how many people I hear complaining that Hurricane (now tropical storm) Hermine has disrupted their Labor Day weekend plans. I don’t mean the “Darn, that sucks” kind of complaining, but rather those that are upset because campgrounds and RV parks where they had reservations are closed due to damage or a lack […]

Yesterday was our last day in Las Vegas, and I can’t say we’re sad to be leaving, if for no other reason than to get out of the heat. And the traffic. And the noise. And the… well, you get it. We ran a few errands yesterday morning, then decided to treat ourselves to a […]

We’ve been in the Apache Junction area for six weeks, which is at least two weeks longer than I like sitting still, and we both have a bad case of hitch itch. But today we get to roll our motorhome’s wheels! We plan to leave Countryside RV Resort mid-morning and drive to Tucson, where we […]

With summer finally here, a lot of us who have been sitting still much of the winter are hitting the road, and weekend warriors are getting their RVs ready for vacations and summer camping trips. RVs are complex machines, and while I am far from a technical person, even I am capable of taking a […]

After reading my blog about repairing a broken radiator hose on our MCI bus conversion earlier this week, a soon to be fulltimer e-mailed to ask me what basic tools I carry in our rig to keep us out of trouble. Obviously this is a brand new reader, because anybody who knows much about me […]
