Last night on Great American Country GAC I taped the show Flippin RV's. Its like a reality show where a young couple scours the country for vintage trailers which they buy and restore and you get to see the beginning, the restoration and the final product. I'm sure it will be repeated and there are more upcoming episodes which I will be looking forward to. Might wanna check it out. I get it on Dish Network GAC

It seemed in good condition. But that wasn't the case unfortunately. It had lots of bondo over rusted lower panels and even they had moved the front suspension an inch or so, since the frame rails were rusting away on the left hand side, totally dangerous!…Continue
Problems Problems Problems lol
Okay, so my RV and Truck, like all vehicles used to be, are 3 wire 1157 dual bulb lighting systems (Left Turn & Stop,,,,,,Right Turn & Stop,,,,,Tail Lights). Similar I have three trailers all of which (like most trailers) are 3 wire so no problem so far.
HOWEVER my car/toad I haul or tow to Florida is a 4 wire (Left Turn,,,,,,,Right Turn,,,,,,,Stop Light,,,,,,,,,Tail Light). Sometimes I tow that car and sometimes I…Continue
I recently purchused a 1955 comet canned ham, it was abandoned so I got no title with it. Here in Oklahoma one lady at the tag office said as long as it did not have a "black water" tank it did not have to have a tiltle and be registered, just a bill of sale. so I took a notorized bill of sale back and now they tell me it has to have a tilte....any advice from anyone, and do you know if these ever even had a title?

Well we had quite a rain storm yesterday and now I discovered I have a leak in the rear of the RV...uhg, I guess I'll be up there patching things for a while now. I knew there was a reason I got this lady so cheap...lol.
This is so CRAZY. Murphy's Law is driving me crazy. First, the septic, second no AC and now the hot water heater is not working. NO I will not ask what is next...LOL
Well, just another thing to figure out. I have to wait till dark to check the electronic spark. I actually think it is in the regulator. This unit, I believe is the original unit. I will let you know what I find. Wish Me luck.

How to Double Your Wardrobe Capacity
We know thru experience that certain members of the household like to take more clothes than necessary on a trip. To accommodate this nicely, here is a tip.
Purchase a spool of strong twine, at least 25# test. Make sure it looks decent. Now start tying loops about every 4". Then, insert the top hanger (with the clothes on it) thru the…Continue
I'm new to RVing although I have been planning/wishing to do this for years now. On impulse I took the plunge and bought this wonderful 'lady' a 1977 Vanguard Sportsman. She's in wonderful condition considering her age, although she does have a problem common to her age and make....the truck motor will not charge the battery. I have 2 friends, both mechanics, who are checking this out, as well as everything else, to make sure she is road worthy for me. It seems the alternator is fine, so now…Continue
We all know before taking a trip, to check tire pressure and lug nuts.
It's not rocket science.
I had picked up and 2011 39 foot 5th wheel for a friend from the DEALER.
It was supposed to have been prepped and inspected etc, prior to delivery to the customer.The so called 200 point safety inspection.
I did the walk around, tires looked good and I assumed the lugs were tight,because the check sheet said they were torque to specs. I hooked up,, pulled forward and…Continue
BEWARE OF THE RAKING OVER THE COALS. If you are needing work done on your rig, please shop around as I did today. Both of my units AC units are out and in AZ we are already in the 100's.I called a repair shop and wanted to charge me $ 580.00 to put in a fan motor in my AC unit. Although he could sell me a new unit for 600 plus 200 install. The very next call I made can get the parts and labor for 200. The second business I called will give a free est on site. If the prices are like the fan…Continue
