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....
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

Keep Your RV in Tip-Top Shape with a Clay Bar
Your RV is your source of happiness and pride, having taken you to many road trips and camping trips with your friends and family. This is why it makes perfect sense that you take good care of it. There are many ways to preserve and maintain your RV's paint and clear coat. One…Continue
We left Spokane, WA on the 17th of July and made it to Portland, to visit with my cousin, had a great time (installed the trailer brake controller in the Dreamer). I towed a car hauler that I already owned; with my sons pick-up and my bicycle on it. Couldn't believe how expensive you can get into a car towing system. The trailer was only a couple of years old & proven reliable. And the little truck with a matching yellow kayak on top and my pontoon boat in the back. All the toys a…Continue
Hello! I came here to sell my RV and after seeing pictures and blogs I don't want to sell it!Continue
Pat has suggested that we talk about what we are doing with our older motor home Recreational Vehicle, and how that work is progressing. I think that a 28 year old motor home RV qualifies for the term "classic" or perhaps "vintage," so it should meet the definition for "older," so it might fit in here.
I had not really intended to get a motor home RV back in the summer of 2013. It just sort of happened. It had belonged to a…Continue
We are 2 Southern Women who have been traveling in an old Class A RV for over 2 years now. We started out just trying to visit every single Florida State Park with RV camping. But as with anything else in life that requires quite a bit of money to keep doing. So about six months into our adventure we decided to become volunteer workampers in the Florida State Parks to help pay for our site fees. We make and sell handcrafted items, I have written a book (Insiders Guide to Campground Hosting…Continue
I'm a good hand to carry a lot of spare parts and tools when we take the RV cross country, and a buddy of mine had a small 2 inch Receiver mounted Vice SO I HAD TO HAVE ONE LOL and built this today. Its handy if ever needed and better then the first wife…Continue
Woo Hoo! I made it through my first full winter in my RV! It was debatable a few times but I persevered. I learned so much and most of it was from this website. This is definitely my go to spot for info.
Still at the Caldwell RV Park here in Idaho and just got moved into a primo spot a few weeks ago. The Boise River is my front yard and a lake is my back yard. When I have the window shades up on the left side, all I can see is the lake and the RV's at the other end of the…Continue
There are different ways to winterize an RV, some of which may require less anti freeze then the four gallons I generally use, but FWIW here’s my method which I have used for well over thirty years. First of all, I highly recommend a water heater by pass plumbing job which isn’t that hard or…Continue
Disclaimer: I am NOT an expert on anything. I have spent the past two years researching and reviving a 1957 Yellowstone for MY purposes and am learning a lot along the way. I am always happy to share my own experience to save someone else the “joy” of the learning curve as it were. My background includes ~6 years as a machinist, a lifetime of breaking then fixing things, 5 or 6 classic car restorations, and more recently the lure of the Internet to help bring me answers to new things. …Continue
It really wasn't as difficult as I had expected. I got the idea from our friend Stu Mitchell here on GORVs. Stu reccommended a method called "roll and tip" and a brand called Interlux Brightside. I knew that I couldn't spray paint my MH and I certainly could not afford from 3,000 to 20,000 dollars for a professional paint job. (some of the quotes I received by calling around). I thought by gosh I can roll paint, I have done several houses and many walls, why not a MH. So I proceded to…Continue
We all have those projects in life that seem to never get finished. All the moxie and determination seems to wane after a while, and what started as a fire quickly dwindles down to a smoldering ember. THEN! Along comes your second wind, and it's just enough to blow gently on the ember and bring it back to a roaring blaze!
Such it is with projects like…Continue

We met some wonderful people at the Lakeside KOA just north of Fort Collins. And, they had some neat stuff! Check out the very custom generator mount for our friends from Elko, Nevada. Perfect for any 5th wheel. Anybody know of a company that makes such a neat rear mount genny bracket? Let us know in Forums. Most 5th wheelers need one. And, the very trick recumbent (sp?) bike was customer built in Wisconsin for our other rv friends featured here. Add… Continue
