As I sit in my Thermals,the wife in her robe,
We live in our 5th wheel, we call our adobe.
With the weather turning colder,and no snow on the ground
We figured ole Santa would still come around.
With no slant roof to land on, No chimney to slide,
Santa has for RV'ers ,customized his ride.
He cruises up in a sleigh flashing Bling,
He knocks on the door,and gives us a ring.
Instead of TV's,radio's and clocks,
He brings what we…Continue
So. I still haven't seen her in the "flesh" so to speak. Juno is still in Denver while the better half works out some kinks before getting her across country. Had hoped he'd be here for Christmas but that's half the fun of RVing, right? Life is no longer in your control.
I have gotten some great shots on skype of under the seats while I'm perched next to same better half as he changes out fuses. Very clean under there. She has been well-maintained.
That said, we found some…Continue
If your full timing,,, the rules are,, always prepare, Which apparently I failed to do,, as a seasoned full timer. Call it a Blonde joke moment, Brain Fart, oooops, or what ever comes to mind. I had initially prepared for the cold snap heading our way. Bought a NEW tangle proof, insulated,top of the line RV fresh water hose. And for precautionary measures,, double insulated it with foam pipe wrap AND Roll wrap insulation.( Being December, I always replace my fresh water hose whether it needs…Continue
After having a couple conversations concerning *noises,,( you know,, things that go Bump in the night), I thought I would pass on some humor on this subject.
While deep in slumber all tucked tight under warm blankets,, the furnace set at a comfortable 68 degrees. Then in a slight sleep and not quite awake you hear a *tink,,tink,tink, You brush it off not thinking about it and attempt to drift off to la la land. Then that little tink, tink,tink, turns into a twangy clank clank clank.…Continue

I posted a comment on RV products that are advertised as made in U.S.A.. Now don't get me wrong,, Other countries do make quality products along with respected manufacturers. The issue I have is inferior products claiming to be made some place they are not. I had only chose the made in U.S.A trademark stamp because there are numerous RV manufactureres and suppliers here.(Mostly Indiana). The big issue was the slightly more expensive product only offered a 30 day warantee.

So it is Cold out, Getting ready to crawl under and run one of 3 wire harness to rear from new cabinet. This one will carry 4 circuits (dc) and the second will carry 3 more and the last will carry a couple different ones including the electric fuel pump wire so rats etc can STOP chewing it up lol.. Ill make a small video and/or pictures.. Keep on Travelling!!
Started pulling things apart and there is some water damage. I expected that really. I am going to remove the walls as a whole unit (framing) so I can use as a template to build new walls. IE: Height and Width so the exterior metal will fit back on.... There really isn't that much to construction. Definitely learning how they were assembled at the plant...
I went and checked out a used RV, for a quick project,,,
*Ad says, 2008 Terry bumper pull, 25 ft, w/slide,

Welllll,, alrightyyyyyyy then,, Off we go to check this bumber pull out.
I pull up, to check it out,,, seems to look pretty decent,,, a couple dings,, a little faded paint and graphics,, and tires are holding air. I ask about the cover across the front…Continue
Hey GORV members,,,,, are ya'll ready for winter and the cold brrrrr winds, wet cold snow? Me neether. Well I can handle a pretty xmas morning with a nice coating of snow to set the mood,,, But after that it can all melt and go back to Human temps,, right around a comfy 75 degrees. One thing that has bothered me and I spent countless minutes searching the web for the answer to a particular question. When snow melts,,, where does the white go? Just something to ponder.
Its like while…Continue

following the short previous posts, i need to supply 2 lines 1 from chassis and 1 from house back over nice and neat, to supply the circuit breaker blocks they had for generator-jacks etc. then i'll be back and next is 4way smart converter/charger to replace the 35year old original. It btw is STILL working but it doesn't have the needed functions for a modern system. then solar array.
I am going to do the Renogy 200w setup, this current system will give me 225ah useable and the system…Continue
Considering its stormy weather outside,, I took the RV furnace out in between the down pours, Thank goodness for pop up canopy's.
My 92 Fleetwood 5th wheel has a Hydroflame 5330 furnace,, Atwood bought out the brand and labled it an Atwood 8531-11 model.
32,300 b.t.u. (4 ducts).
It wasn't rocket science to remove it,,, I started by disconnecting the thermostat wire, (red and white wire sleeved in a brown coated wire),
then disconnecting the 12 V power supply,,…Continue
