I don't think I like the direction my garage contents are going. It's starting to look waaaaay too much like a mechanics' cave. When there is a torn apart carburetor in the middle of the room, and dirty grimey rags everywhere, the smell of gas despite draining it before bringing it in...grease tracks on the floor, all kinds of cans of cleaners and lube sprays here and there,...and should I mention the mower deck torn apart on the other side of that? I s'pect next year I'll have a full…Continue
If your in any of the areas of the evacuation in or around Florida, and you have to bug out,,Take your RV, (if you have one road ready). With the mass amount of people vacating, Motels and hotels are booked and packed solid, and several evacuation relief centers are at max capacity.
Several RV Parks in safe zones are offering free spaces to park and Walmart and Sports centers and malls are also open for parking.
When you do *bug out with your RV, fill your fresh water tank…Continue

Let me thank everyone for allowing me to use this site to hopefully find an old retro RV and restore it to it's former glory.
A little about me first. I am 67 year old man retired with an itch to use some of the skills I have learned in my working career. After 20 years I retired from Hatteras Yachts. I was considered a Master Craftsman. For those that…Continue
Here is subject that I havent come across in awhile. I was going thru my crayon scribbles on construction paper, The dangers of Carbon Monoxide poisoning. Most, (not all ) RV's use Gas appliances, Stove, water heater, Furnace ,Fridge. Thats a lot of flame if you think about it. Little candles burning 24/7 until a demand is needed,, then it becomes a Blow torch.
Now all of these appliances have (or supposed to ) have a clear exhaust vent to vent the poisonous gas outside. All it takes…Continue
Its getting to be that time of the year fellow RV's. Yup, old man winter is going to be apon us in a very short period of time. Do you know what that means? Time to winterize if your going to store your rig or trailer, But if your a full timer,,, Winter checklists still have to be performed,
Now with winter,, it brings the BRRRR COLD, No matter where your parked,, there is going to be a cold spell pass thru and possibly hang around,, and that means you need heat. No you can be el…Continue

there's all kinds of stuff attached to this thing.
So....can anyone tell me any info about…Continue

I recently made a "How-To" page for repairing and refinishing the screened window frames for my '73 Yellowstone.
If you'd like to see how they came together .... click HERE!
Just in case anyone was wondering, the work is still in progress on Diggity Dodge. I've had to limit my strenuous activities to stop burning off more than I put in as far as nutrition/calories. Being underweight is no fun and causes health issues too.
On to the progress...I have the kitchen wall almost finished with the Luan. Just a couple of small areas on the sides to cut and fit.…Continue
So sorry, I had a spelling error on the last post, it should read

This one's been active since we got the LH2 (an Allegro '87 class A) and I've been working the bugs out of her. Fun, excitement, travel, drama it's all there.
Take a look and laugh and cry at the stuff we go through.
Have a good one and all the best to you....
