What's New With Us

Well, my darling wife Anne has just returned from a three week trip to Scotland. She toured the countryside hitting all the best landscape photo locations adding to her every growing worldwide portfolio. Now that she is back we are engaged in our final preparations for six months of RV snowbirding.

While Anne was in Scotland, I've been driveway surfing at my sister's place. I spent the time on a bunch of little mods and upgrades to the rig and making sure our old 1994 truck "Big Blue" is in tip-top condition.
Some of the work like the engine oil, rear differential oil, and fuel filter change (you know the messy work) I farmed out to a local shop. However, I did get my hands dirty swapping out a faulty glow plug controller saving myself several hundred dollars. Every little bit saved helps to keep our full-time RVing dream going.
Since I found myself with quite a bit of spare time, I decided to put together a new eBook "RVing with a Fifth Wheel" It's a digest of posts I've picked out from hundreds found on Love Your RV! I edited them into a PDF format for easy download and reading offline.
Although the eBook is aimed at fifth wheel owners like myself, owners of other RV types might find it handy too. The eBook is completely free, no strings attached. My gift to you. Feel free to share it with friends and other RVers. I hope you find it useful. Down the road, I'm considering doing the same for other topics like boondocking or snowbirding.
I finally picked myself up a TPMS (tire pressure monitor system) We've never had a tire blowout on the trailer, and that's over six years and tens of thousands of miles. However, I know that's been pretty lucky and our time will come.

Hopefully, the TPMS can help mitigate any potential catastrophic damage. Though pricey I feel its worth the cost. I'll have a full review out after I've used it during our travels for a few weeks. In the meantime you could check out the unboxing and install video, I did on YouTube.
That's about it for this month, not much else to say since we haven't been RVing much. That will soon change as we switch into extended travel mode so stay tuned for the next edition.

RVing Tip of the Month

Cold weather RVing tip. Use an infrared temperature gun to go around and see where the most vulnerable plumbing is located. Once you find the coldest location, place a wireless thermometer receiver there. Most will report the lowest temperature recorded in the last 24 hours. Now you can monitor the area and maybe save a pipe freeze up from taking place.
RVing Funny of the Month
Not sure the original source, found on Imgur, Love the last line. :)

RVing is my passion and sharing it a blast, thanks for tuning in.
