Note: I posted this in the blog several years ago, but based upon the questions I get, I thought it was worth updating and sharing again. No two RVers are the same. Some of us are fulltimers, some are snowbirds, and some are weekend warriors. Some of us like the wide open spaces and enjoy […]

Gas Attack!

No, I wasn’t suffering gastric distress, this is something else altogether. Even worse, if you can believe that. We spent yesterday getting our old RV refrigerator out of the motorhome. Or at least that was the plan. We made some headway, but no project ever goes as easily as planned, and we’re not quite there […]

Found It!

Thanks to everybody who posted comments on the blog or Facebook, or sent me e-mails with suggestions for a residential refrigerator to replace our fast failing Norcold RV refrigerator. Quite a few RVers said they swapped out their RV refrigerators for either Samsung RF197 units, which are no longer available, or Samsung RF18s, which replaced […]

It’s Here!

After a couple of unexpected delays, Terry’s new Splendide washer/dryer combo was delivered yesterday afternoon. She is officially a happy camper! And just in time too! Another day and I would have been reduced to going commando! Trust me, nobody wanted to see that happen. After getting the old unit out, we weren’t too sure […]

Hot Weather RVing Tips

My cousin Beverly called the other day to tell us it was 108 degrees in Tucson. There’s a reason I stay out of Arizona in the summer. Although I’ve seen some days here in northern Indiana when it felt just as hot. Of course, fans of the desert will tell you that while it does […]

It Was A Good Week

We had a very good week at the Escapees Escapade rally this past week, in spite of the pouring rain, frigid temperatures, wind, and mud. Yeah, it was typical RV rally weather. Terry and I enjoyed seeing so many old and new friends who stopped by our vendor booth.   Here we have a combination […]

Honey, We’re Home!

We definitely need new batteries. When we were boondocking Saturday night I ran our Onan generator for three hours. We turned everything off before we went to bed about midnight and the batteries were at 12.4 volts. When we woke up at 7 a.m. they were down to 10.8 volts. These are Interstate batteries that […]

We all change and evolve over time, including fulltime RVers. While Terry and I have reached the point where we prefer the comforts of a full hookup RV park, we are no strangers to dry camping. In fact, we probably have a lot more experience at it than most folks we know. There was a […]

The Wet Spot

There you go again. Would you please get your mind out of the gutter? I’m talking about our water leak! The other day I noticed that there was a small wet spot on the ground under our motorhome, and since it was near where the refrigerator is, I thought it might be condensation or something. […]

Pins And Needles

We’ve been on pins and needles for two days now, worried about Terry’s 83 year old father. He and her mother spend their summers in their RV in northern Arizona and winters at their home in Mesa. Pete is a bladder cancer survivor and started having severe pain a few days ago. The hospital in […]
