    Wasted Tank Capacity - a Fix Anyone?

    We are anxious to learn an easy fix for this also.  The gen on our Holiday Rambler shuts off way before the 1/4-tank point.  Most of our longer trips are in the hottest part of the summer.  It is not always desirable or possible to refuel before the a/c quits.  We aren't asking for the gen to...

    Haven't bought yet, and wondering about: Showers in an RV

    Gray tank capacity seems to be more the issue with us, not the 10-gal water heater.  We take a lot of "navy" showers unless we have a sewer hookup.

    washer dryer use in our new to us dp

    First let me say I have an OCD about laundry sorting.  My wash loads can be pathetically small, even in our home washer and dryer.  On some of our trips we drive tag team non-stop for a couple of days, stopping only for fuel, meals, and to let the new driver wake up and have some coffee.  So...

    replacing the rubber roof

    DH and I replaced our rubber roof, as well as all the decking. DH built a slide device to get the A/C units off and back on. The device consisted of 2 runners that reached up to the top of the RV, and a sliding tray with edges that kept the units from falling off. Rope was used to lower, and...

    Need more storage ideas in travel trailer

    Agree it might be time to lighten your load if you can. I store some infrequently used kitchen items in the bedroom. Use every sq inch you can, even if it means storing things in non-traditional spaces.

    Overnighting at Rest Stops on I-10 in Texas

    I know there is an RV "park" in Segovia. It's more like a parking lot with full 30amp hookups. Take the Segovia exit, about 8 miles east of Junction. Pay at the Econolodge. It's right off the freeway, easy-off, easy-on.  We have stayed there many times.  And the honor Passport America.

    Replacing refer with household unit

    Are the folks using residential fridges full-timers or weekenders?  I do like that it can run off gas when there is no shore power or gen. But residential fridges work so much better.

    Coast to Coast trip in our Class A starts Thursday

    I am interested in your stay in Vegas. We will be there in about 4 weeks for a convention.  We will be staying in the RV. We have the cover for the windshield, I may go buy a roll of Reflectix. I don't want to be miserable at night and need to bd fresh the next day.

    Would love to learn your thoughts

    We got our washer/dryer installed a couple of weeks ago. Love it!  I don't notice any loss of storage because we knew all along we would be getting the washer unit, so that nice big cabinet is not something I came to depend on.  It was almost empty when it came time for the installation.  It was...

    Help me understand the day to day heating & cooling operation

    If we are freezing when we start out we turn on the furnace to take the chill out, then go with dash heat. If that's not enough we turn the furnace back on.  It's the same way with cooling. We start the gen if it's stuffy and cool of with a/c, then see if dash air is enough.  In Texas in summer...

    Would love to learn your thoughts

    My thoughts on the door being in front of the passenger - we got this floorplan in August and I will never go back. The livable space it allows is worth any inconvenience I thought we might encounter. And since we are not driving a bus with frequent stops for passengers to get in and out, there...

    Hints, Tricks and Gadgets/Tools --- small ones.

    Yesterday I found a way to keep the kitchen trash can upright while traveling.  I use an 8-gal can with a 13-gal trash bag with a drawstring (cinch sack).  After inserting the bag into the can, I fold the top of the bag over the outside of the can.  I positioned the can where I wanted it to be...

    I have the CTR500 and I updated my firmware yesterday.  Afterward a screen came up asking for a username.  I never assigned a username so I contacted Cradlepoint.  This is a new feature.  The default username is: admin.  HTH

    Ebay bidding problems

    I always snipe.  Sometimes I use  I've had my internet connection freeze up on me, but in my part of the world where DSL and cable internet are unavailable, that's pretty common.  But I've never had ebay delay my bid.

    Emissions testing in Texas

    Gas or diesel? After having the emissions tests on our cars (in Texas), the inspection stations tell me to keep the paperwork in the vehicle.  If you can't get your hands on the documents, or duplicates, you may have to have it inspected again.  Diesel rv's are exempt from the emissions testing...

    Credit card rip off

    My mother passed away this year.  I am monitoring the account closely to make sure all obligations are settled and nothing new and different shows up.  I will be closing the account before the end of the year.  The bank located an 800#, but I let them handle it. It really is scary what crooks...
