    Quilt for the Motorhome

    Have you ever noticed that your bedding doesn't fit right near the top of the bed where the cabinets are right next to the mattress? Well, MaryAnne always wanted to make a quilt for our bed in the motorhome. She decided to cut out the areas by those cabinets so that it no longer bunched up...

    Slide Out Awning not rolling up.

    A couple of days ago, the slideout awning did not retract when I brought the slide in. I got my ladder out and investigated. There was no spring tension on it at all. It is a Carefree Omega Awning. Since we are on our "Western Loop Adventure" and will be staying at the Rafter J Bar Ranch in the...

    TPMS Question

    My toad (2013 Honda CRV) already has its own tpms. Will there be any issues with putting Pressure Pro sensors right on the top of those? I am assuming that Pressure Pro would not recognize the Honda sensors. Correct?

    Swimming with the Manatees

    We are currently in Crystal River, FL. We just finished a 3 hour experience of a lifetime. Swimming with the manatees in a spring was awesome. They were close enough to touch. Really a neat way to spend Valentines Day with my sweetie of 35 years!

    Selecting and setting up a new Toad

    I will be purchasing a new toad. Probably a Honda CRV. We lost our old toad to a rollover accident in 2011 by our granddaughter. She is fine except for a scrape on the head and a very bruised ego. It was a 2001 Chevy Tracker and a great low mileage toad! I have a Roadmaster Stowmaster tow bar...
