Tires on any type of RV are the topic of constant discussion which emphasizes how important they are to one’s enjoyment and safety while traveling. I’ve written here on our blog in the past about tires on many occasions and because it is such a popular and important topic, I’m writing about it again. This time I want to draw your attention to RV tire sidewall cracking, an issue that put our travels on hold for part of the summer.
We’ve owned our motorhome and have been on the road as full-timers for over six years. In that time, we replaced the tires that were OEM, that is Original Equipment by the Manufacturer. They served well for 10+ years and only one of the six ever presented us with an issue. When we no longer felt safe driving with them under our coach, we did what needed to be done and replaced them with six brand new tires.
It is not uncommon for RVers to find that their rig has been invaded by unwanted four-legged guests … mice. That’s never any fun, so today’s post deals with how to keep mice out of an RV.
Rodents, in general, are attracted to the RVing lifestyle for much the same reasons you are. An RV is a cozy place with all of the comforts and amenities … mostly food.
Unexpected repairs are a part of RVing. Sometimes these repairs are minor in nature, like this RV bathroom faucet replacement, and other times they are major. Those major unexpected repairs can be the deciding factor for many whether or not they continue the lifestyle. I know when we faced the broken trailing arm issue years ago, we had to think long and hard about it.
As an RVer, we are tasked to connect to a sewer connection at our site or pay a visit to the nearest dump station to empty our gray and black tanks. There are those who choose to glove up, that is putting on gloves to keep their hands clean and poo free. Are you someone who does? Have you really thought about why you do and what you touch in the process of dumping? Not many really do and if they had someone video them from a distance and played back the video, they’d be surprised at what they actually did do.
