Full-Time RV Travel Roundup #1

We're adding something new this week: A Full-Time RV Travel Roundup

I got to thinking that we're both very active on social media, as are many other RV and Travel Bloggers. We find and share a lot of really good info on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest. But if that info doesn't make it back to our site or into our newsletter, it has a really short shelf life AND it's not helping our blog and newsletter readers.

So, beginning with this post, we’ll publish one curated article a week, sometimes less, never more in addition to our regular blog articles that we write personally. Please let us know what you think of this. Do you like it? Hate it? Want more of something? Or less?

Winds Is It Too Much

Things to consider before driving in high winds.

This time of year as autumn provides us with vivid colors, seasonal winds pick up and remind us that winter is coming. For many of us RVers this is the time of year we begin the journey to our ‘wintering grounds’ and that means we could find ourselves dealing with these seasonal breezes.

A gentle breeze is a wonderful thing while sitting around your RV; it helps to keep you cool and the bugs away. But when it’s more than a breeze, wind is something you need to be keenly aware of, whether your RV is parked or you’re driving it down the road.

3 Must-Do Scenic Train Rides in Colorado

The Cumbres & Toltec steam engine pulls into Sublette Station.

We often say that our plans are set in jello as full-time RVers. Plans sometimes change with little notice, and that’s been our story for most of 2017. Coming to Colorado at all was a major change of plans, with that idea not even considered until the end of July. Two industry events in Denver were the catalyst for this trip, but the excitement for it was sparked by a little research. And just like that, we absolutely had to take a train ride through the Rockies!

Our first event in Denver was the 37th National Narrow Gauge Convention, where we represented our manufacturing customers to model railroad enthusiasts. You can’t be around that many steam train fanatics for long without getting excited about experiencing riding aboard a real train for yourself.

This Inexpensive Tool Could Save Your Life

An RV tire pressure tip: An inexpensive, readily available tool keeps your valve stems tight.

Maintaining proper RV tire pressure is crucial to avoiding costly tire repairs/failures and potentially lethal accidents. While many add a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) to their RV, this little tool is just as important, whether you have a TPMS or not.

As part of my pre-departure inspection, I check the tire pressure in all twelve tires (six on the coach, two on the dolly and four on the car) before we pull out. The other morning set out to go do some grocery shopping. Right after we left, our Honda’s internal TPMS flagged me as to having a tire with low pressure. Sure enough, after pulling over, it was obviously low. So, I turned around and pulled back into the RV park to air up the tire.
