We have added some nice additions to our RV for long road trips.  Better closet storage, desk area, solar panels ...just to name a few.   One of the "game changers" we've done so far......is adding a washer and dryer.   In the past, we have taken time to find a local laundry mat.  This option worked...

We already had a Furrion "Observation" camera on our Bighorn, which allowed us to not only see while backing into a site, but it also allowed us to view traffic as we drove.  Very helpful to see traffic behind us.

Now we upgraded to a new model from Furrion which includes 4 separate cameras and a 7"...

Camping in the Pacific Northwest is some of the best camping we know of...magnificent waterfalls, deep weather-carved gorges, lush forests, beautiful snow-capped mountains, and rushing rivers!

However, with this great camping, you can be surrounded by trees.... BIG trees!  And, BIG tre...

We traveled to McCall, Idaho after staying in Baker City, Oregon for a quick overnight stop. This offered us a place to break the long trip to McCall in half, stock up on needed items and get several chores taken care of.

The drive from Baker City to McCall was beautiful, yet the trip was longer...

We had already experienced 2 filter water filtration units from Clearsource....  we understand the value of fresh, clean water.   When Clearsource developed the new "Ultra" brand with 3 filters, we knew it was time to upgrade!

Let our adventures begin...

The first stop of our seven week adventure began in site 17 at Pioneer Ford campground.  This beautiful space is located on the Metolius River near Sister, Oregon.  It is further than other campgrounds along the Metolius River....yet the beauty of the location is that it o...

It was VERY obvious that when we replaced our RV’s external stairs that we would need to do something about the big gap where the stairs were originally stored.  The new stairs fold into the RV…see that video by clicking here

We installed the Lippert SolidStep® Storage Box int this opening, as it i...

We hated...yes...HATED having to walk into the RV, open the cabinet doors to turn on the lights. Same for going to bed.  It just didn't make sense.  It was a struggle to negotiate the individual switches.  (on...on...on.....off....off....off)  Why couldn't we just add a switch to control a combinati...

That's the sound nobody wants to hear from their vehicle, when you attempt to start it.  Most of us have been in this situation and trying to find someone to help jump start your vehicle isn't always easy or safe....

This blog will be a bit different than our normal RV conversations.  We simply wanted to share a fantastic rental condo we found on VRBO in Cabo San Lucas. 

We have stayed in Cabo before with family and friends....  yet this time we needed a smaller place just for Melinda and I.   At times, plac...

If you've ever wanted a powerful, yet VERY portable work light, look no further.  The Schumacher SL175RU is the perfect match between a BRIGHT LED light and the convenience of a cordless device.

We had already installed reverse lights on our Bighorn.  We know the benefits of using bright li...

Every now and then you get a product that does EXACTLY what it is supposed to do and does it very ..... very  well.  The Schumacher DH139 is that product.

This handy generator runs off the internal 750Wh Lithium battery which creates 110v power  (up to 500w) for your electrical needs.   Gre...

So what is a CH751 lock / Key?


It's a key that's perfect for RV dealers..... as they only need to carry one key to access 100's of RV's on their lot...great for them...... but not great for owners.

The CH751 key/lock is used on most class A, B and C recreational vehicles, including Motorhomes, 5...

A little over a year ago, we installed Torklift Glowsteps to replace the factory steps that came with our Bighorn and found that they were far superior.  Easy to set up, put away....and definitely stronger than the narrow, bouncy factory steps.  

Then, something happened!  We...

Shopping for a new RV is fun.  However, finding the perfect fit can take time.  When we were shopping for our last RV, an absolute must item on our priority list was auto-leveling.   We had many frustrating moments with our prior RV.... when leveling proved to be difficult.  Many times, we had to st...
