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!
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!
Rarely do we watch television to begin with except for on rainy days or when we want to watch a game or race. However, it seemed that our over-the-air (OTA) television reception was just not hacking it for us on the days we wanted to take in a game or some program. Being that we aren’t satellite dish users, we had to do something.
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.
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…
I was always a ‘stainless steel’ pots and pans cook; raised on it when I was a kid and brought up using them through all of my adult life. I loved it. It was safe and I feared no health consequences from cooking in good quality stainless steel cookware or cooking tools. So, because we moved into a smaller kitchen, I had to find an alternative that was compact yet big enough to do the job but had to be stainless steel.
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.
We’ve figured out how to replenish our water by using our water bladder when we’re boondocking however, we still have one looming stinking issue. We don’t particularly want to pack everything up and give up our great boon docking space just to go empty our black tank and gray tank. So, we came up with a solution on how to get rid of our CRAP.
Whether you’re a full-time RVer like ourselves, or a weekend camper, van camper, automobile traveler or even a boater, you’ll want to take some tech toys with you so you can be plugged in. However, if you’re like us, once you go off the grid, you’ll need to rethink your electronic peripherals because not all can work without being plugged in to a 120 volt outlet.
