Camping season is over and it’s time to winterize your RV or camper before putting it into storage. Regardless if it’s a motorhome, travel trailer, fifth wheel, truck camper or even camper van, proper winterization procedures are necessary for all of your RV’s systems and components. Here’s a great how-to-guide.
Being that most campgrounds and RV parks disallow us to wash our RV at our site, we became enamored with this product called Waterless Wash Wax ALL. We’ve used it on both of our former fifth wheels. However, since downsizing significantly to our 25′ motorhome, we ran into a humongous dilemma! We had very little space to store the gallon jug of the Wash WaxALL solution. But, we found a better more-storage-friendly solution!
In 2014, we purchased our Heartland Cyclone 4100 fifth wheel toy hauler and Ram 3500 truck. However, we still had one more piece of the puzzle that would allow us to pull our load safely; a fifth wheel hitch. We read reviews and researched every fifth wheel hitch out there. Our focus kept pointing to Curt Manufacturing because of their commitment to safety. So few years later, when we were approached to be featured in Curt Manufacturing’s Tested. Proven. Safe. safety campaign commercial, we said YES!
Before we set out for the open road in 2014, we had come to the hard-core realization that RV life is vastly different than living in sticks and bricks house. By sharing our RV life skills and how we do it now, we hope others won’t have to learn the hard way like we did. Bear with me in my tongue-in-cheek approach to keep things light in this blog piece. It’s what keeps things going for us. And, we’ll get to that in #5.
Earlier in this blog, we posted a great how-to tutorial on air conditioner vents and filter maintenance and cleaning.This article pairs by showing you how to inspect and maintain the rooftop components of your RV air conditioning system.Here’s another helpful how-to guide that will walk you through from getting on the roof to making sure your RV motorhome of towable RV’s air conditioner remains near perfect efficiency.
One of the nastiest chores an RV owner must do is empty the sewage tanks. And in doing that, a variety of supplies and of course, a place to store them is an order. But, where do you store the stinky slinky. Well, we found a great storage carrier for the sewer hose that is an easy-to-install RV modification!
It’s Spring time! The birds are singing, trees and flowers are blooming and fillies and foals are testing out their legs in the pastures. The circle of life is rejuvenated. But, it also means camping season is here! RV and camper owners are bringing their motorhomes, fifth wheels and travel trailers out the mothballs and getting them ready to go camping. But, there’s a right way to get your RV back on the road. Here, we’ll show you how to de-winterize your RV or camper!
There’s nothing worse than driving or pulling your RV down the road only to experience a tire blowout. Oftentimes, tire blowouts or flats happen in the most inopportune times and places. Also, they can be quite unnerving and scary if you don’t know how to handle your RV or vehicle. However, what if I told you there was a product out there that alerted you of tire issues BEFORE that blowout or flat? We found one! Its the Truck System Technologies TST 507-RV-6-C tire pressure and temperature monitoring system.
While we know our RV’s black and gray holding tanks are dirty (they contain waste, after all), our freshwater holding tanks need regular and thorough cleaning too. Here’s the easy process to get your fresh water holding tanks so clean you can drink out of them.
You can use this technique on any truck camper, travel trailer, fifth wheel, or motorhome. Heck, you can use this procedure on your boat or yacht as well!
