The BetterWeigh™ Mobile Towing Scale sends live weight readouts of the vehicle, trailer, payload, tongue weight, pin weight, weight distribution and trailer brake gain.
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. After much research, our compass needle kept pointing to CURT Manufacturing products because of their commitment to safety. And then, a few years later, we joined their safety campaign team.
One of the least favorite but necessary chores RV owners must do is empty their motorhome or trailer’s gray and black tank. There’s a variety of necessary sewage disposal supplies you’ll need; primarily your sewer hose.

Since we are not television satellite dish users, we rely on our over-the-air (OTA) television. We enjoy at watching at least a little local television stations to catch up on the news, watch a game or regular television programming. However, our old Winegard antenna was just not hacking it to do the job. So we replaced our old RV television antenna with the Winegard RVW-205 Sensar IV with Wingman.
When driving your motorhome or pulling your travel trailer or fifth wheel down the road, it’s not a matter of if you’re RV, tow vehicle or toad will have a tire blowout but when.

So, let’s talk about Truck Systems Technologies TST 507 RV 6 C TPMS, installation, how it works and our product review.
I can’t believe it’s already been over three years since we took delivery of our Heartland Landmark 365. One of the features that sold us on the Landmark was the beautiful, large, fully-functional RV kitchen. The island creates a more ample food prep surface. Oh, and that big single farmer’s sink allows for cleaning large pots and pans. However, one little issue just grated on me that needed to be updated; our kitchen faucet.
When we find a product that just makes us all giddy inside, we find ourselves eager to shout it from our RV rooftop. This product review isn’t necessarily an RV or camper component or really RV specific. You’re probably wondering “why on earth would we do a product review on a simple coffee mug?” Well, the answer really isn’t that simple. Continue to read why we’ve rated them as being the absolute last coffee mug you’ll ever buy…
Improvise and adapt; a common military phrase when you start with practically nothing or something less desirable and we make it great. The same holds true in our RV lifestyle.
Living quarters in RVs and campers are quite limited. But that doesn’t mean our world or journey is. We love to be outside, especially when the weather is kind to us. So, instead of sitting inside watching tv or working, we relocated ourselves to enjoy the outdoors. That means, we need to make an outdoor living space or outdoor living room. So, this is our way of improvising and adapting.
If you enjoy boondocking or living off the grid but are stumped by how to empty your RV holding tanks without moving your fifth wheel, travel trailer or towable camper, you’ll want to check out our solution!
