What's New With Us

After a long stay in one place, we are getting ready to hit the road again just after Labor Day. It's exciting to pull up the stakes and travel again. I've got the truck all ready to go with brand new tires and fresh oil in the engine, tranny, and rear differential.
I've also made a couple of trips this month to our storage room, transferring a bunch of items we use during our summer stay here but won't take on the road with us. The goal is to keep the trailer lean and not overload it.

Our short-term plan is to travel around Vancouver Island, visiting some of the forestry and Provincial park campsites we can fit into. Now that the summer high season is winding down, good campsites should be a little easier to come by. A few days ago, we took a drive and scouted out a sweet, newly built camping area right on a lake that is free for up to a 2-week stay each year.

We'll be in sort of a holding pattern as we patiently wait to see what happens with the USA land border. Right now, it's still closed for non-essential travel until at least Sept 21st. Weird since on August 9th, Canada opened its border to Americans. Been seeing RVs with US plates around here now.

I sure hope the border opens before winter sets in! But if not, plan B is to come back and spend it again in Campbell River, BC. At least now I have all the cold-weather gear like skirting, dehumidifier, and heated water hose sitting in the storage room if needed.

Ray's Pick - Helpful RVing Website/App

One of the best pages on trailer wiring that I have come across.
Nice diagrams and wire color-coding information.

RV Tip of the Month

Since there are lots of vibrations inside an RV during travel, I find our fridge gets quite scuffed up inside over time. For example, pop or beer cans stored on the door shelves tend to leave marks on the white plastic.

I found a quick way to remove them is with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser
Funny of the Month


Thanks for reading the August LYRV newsletter. Happy rest of the summer to y'all.
