I'm finally back online

I've been living in my old Winnebago for almost a year now and it's been a really---umm---interesting to say the least. First of all, my income isn't large enough to afford a lot extra besides the necessities and I've spent most of the last year without internet. Of course, no TV either, but I"ve done a lot of reading and a lot of writing. Thank goodness I did have books and my laptop.

I'm now able to have a cell phone hotspot through Cricket so I can get on the internet. I…

Looking for a holding tank

 Does anyone happen to know of anywhere around north Misouri where i might find used a Black/gray water holding tank for this 87 Honey i have. I need a small tank. The one that was on it was too deep and it was torn up when I caught it on some high ground. This one was 12inches deep. I need one no more then 6 or 8 inches deep . around 20in  x 30in. for gray water.

Take One RV And Add Habitat for Humanity

What do you get when you add RVs and Habitat for Humanity?  Why, you get RV Care-A-Vanners!  I recently spent about two weeks in Springfield, MO with the Habitat for Humanity RV Care-A-Vanners 25th anniversary build and celebration rally April 21-May 4, 2014.  HFH has been using RVers to help build affordable housing for 25 years.  Building skills - not necessary.  You only need an RV and a…

Interior paneling repair suggestions?

Have minimal water damage to paneling on walls but what I do have has made the paneling paper thin and brittle. We plan on painting the interior paneling but even paint won't cover the damage. Does anyone have any suggestions that may not involve alot of work or money? Thnx! Mark

AC

Well we managed the winter with electric heaters. Now it is summer. Highs have been in the 90's. Now the AC systems do not work. I do have to order new motors for the systems. Today the septic line broke. Had to replace the entire system. However, I know not to ask what is next.

Almost back together!

We spent since October making repairs on our 80 Brave. After engine trouble on every trip, we rebuilt the engine and installed new heads, intake, carb, etc. We have a few more carb adjustments and modifications to make, but she does fire up and run. Last night, I finished replacing the original 30 amp power box with a Progressive Dynamics 4045 unit. It was surprisingly easy, and I was able to separate each of the power device runs. I also added a USB charger outlet and an additional kitchen… Continue
