I wrote in yesterday’s blog that ever since I applied the “hammer treatment” to our motorhome’s inverter it been working fine and we had not had any more power blips. Then, sometime after 3:30 in the morning the warning beeper on the battery backup power supply I use for my computer woke me up. I […]

In my time kicking around this world I’ve been in a few blizzards, a couple of tornados, we drove through the edge of a forest fire during our first year on the road, and I’ve seen a lot of Arizona flash floods. Now I can add an earthquake to the list. A little before noon […]

As I reported a couple of days ago, the drum on our Splendide washer/dryer combo has stopped turning on our Splendide, though it has power and the pump runs. I assumed the belt had broken and called Westland Sales, the Splendide parts and service location near Portland. Sam, the tech I talked to there, was […]

We spent yesterday playing catch up, trying to put a lot of paperwork and household chores that had accumulated during our trip from Florida to Arizona behind us. It always seems like there’s a pile of laundry to be done, a stack of orders to log in and fill, and a backlog of e-mails to […]

Catching Up

After our fast trip from Colorado to Iowa, then our busy week in Forest City getting our motorhome worked on, and then our fast trip to northern Michigan, we needed some time to catch up, both on our sleep, and our paperwork. Not to mention our laundry. So yesterday morning we slept in, and then […]

We have talked a lot about handy RV accessories we enjoy, and ones we consider indispensible. But what about the not so great options you have seen, or have in your rig? No two RVers are the same, so what one of us considers essential, the next guy may think of as a waste of […]

In a recent blog comment, a reader asked about the availability of small trash compactors for RVs. We have seen them in several upper level diesel pushers, though they have never really appealed to us. It is interesting what one person thinks is an essential item in an RV, while someone else would consider it […]
