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...

One would expect to have strong WiFi signal and speed when camping at an RV resort.   They are certainly fancy when compared to our boon docking locations!  However, we've been disappointed time and time again with lack of WiFi signal in resorts that claim to have strong WiFi....

Jim?!!?  What's that popping sound?

This is what Melinda kept asking me, after owning our Bighorn for a little over a year.  So, I did some research and found the solution was simple....if you know the trick.

We went to Lowes..... purchased a replacement faucet and it fit perfectly.  No speci...

We installed a 2000 watt Go Power Inverter to go along with our 3 Trojan T-1275 batteries in our Bighorn, but after a while we felt the need for a more efficient converter.   We also wanted to cut down all the extra wiring in the RV.

Go Power! IC-2000 was the answer!  It's a 2000...

We LOVE this device!  Before getting the Intel Compute Stick, we connected our laptop to the TV with a very long HDMI cable. This created a frustrating situation, as the cable was always in the way. We would have to continuously toss or adjust the cable so that we could get in and out of our chairs....
