Recently, I switched from towing a Rav4 with a tow dolly to flat towing a Honda Fit. Flat towing is expensive compared to the tow dolly but boy, it sure is convenient.
Many RV websites recommend the Accutire Tire Pressure Gauge. I found it to be lacking. Cheap plastic, poor ergonomics, and odd-ball replacement batteries make this a poor choice for RV tires.
One of the things we enjoy about RVing is experiencing new and interesting places. But that doesn’t mean you can’t discover fun experiences nearby. The Old Road Dinner Train in Blissfield Michigan is less than an hour from our home and it has only taken us 25 years to “discover” it.
So what do you do when you get a new RV? Why take it on a 6,000 mile trip out West of course. I won’t bore you with the travel log. Here’s a photo album with maps and pictures if you’re interested.
I was over at Midway RV the other day. The 2018 New Aire is a model that was not available last year. Good thing. I probably would have spent a lot more money.
I’ve found water at many places to be hard. Hard water is water with dissolved minerals. It can stain plumbing fixtures, add a foul taste, and make cleaning and laundry more difficult.
Being new the RV Class A thing and all, there were some rather embarrassing things I had to learn on our first trip out this Spring.
We’re back from a 2,400 mile trip and am happy to report that the ACME EZE TOW tow dolly is just that, an “EZE TOW”. The dolly loads and unloads easily and tracks true. It handles bumps and hard stops without fuss. It was entirely uneventful, which is just what I want from a tow dolly.
I’m probably in the minority but I like boxes made from wood for storage. The plastic ones are an efficient and cost-effective choice but they lack substance. I prefer the old wood boxes used long ago for bottled goods, etc. I pick them up at flea markets when I find them (increasingly rare). When I can’t find one to suit my needs, I make one. Here’s a video about making one such box. Yeah, I’m weird.
