A heat wave has been baking the upper Midwest, with temperatures here in northern Indiana in the 90s. Every newscast is warning people to be sure to drink plenty of fluids and to avoid strenuous activity whenever possible. So how hot is it? Yesterday I saw two trees fighting over a dog. But don’t take […]

They say that timing is everything, and for some reason whenever an RVer is getting ready to hit the road, the gremlins decide that is the perfect time to mess with you. You don’t have to be an RV tech to be able to do some quick fixes to solve a lot of problems so […]

There is probably not an RVer anywhere in America who hasn’t heard how terrible Interstate 10 across Louisiana is. To hear some people tell it, not only will that road shake your rig apart and loosen the fillings in your teeth, it will send women into labor even if they aren’t pregnant, and will create […]

I got an e-mail yesterday from a new RVer who wrote that he is terrified to dump his RV’s black tank for the first time. “It feels like holding a live hand grenade in my hand, waiting for it to explode,” he said. “What if the hose comes loose from where it connects to the […]

After fifteen years of presenting seminars at RV rallies and events nationwide, along with self-publishing seminars and workshops, I like to think that I’m at least halfway competent and semi-professional. But after yesterday I realize that I may have been deluding myself. I had two seminars on yesterday’s schedule, The Frugal RVer from 11:30 to […]

Warning, this blog contains content that may not be comfortable for the squeamish. We have been dealing with a nasty problem, and while we still don’t know what caused it, after a lot of trial and error, and even more frustration, we seem to have solved it. At least for now.

I know it’s not nice but if you’re an experienced RVer, you have to admit that watching newbies set up is always fun. Yesterday morning some folks pulled in next to us with the requisite shouted directions, managed to get the campground utilities hooked up, and then spent the next 90 minutes trying to aim […]
