Hello, and Welcome to the July Newsletter. It's getting hot out there.

Thanks, everyone for subscribing to and reading my monthly newsletters. If you're new or missed any editions, you can always catch up by visiting the Archive Page.

What's New With Us

One month down and two months to go until the expected arrival of our new truck. I've spent the month soaking up as much knowledge of the new Rams as I can. Got to love YouTube. We pay for premium unlimited WiFi at this RV park, so a little binge watching has been going on, haha.

I've also been passing the time with a bit of maintenance and an upgrade to our Cougar's waste system. Our trailer is getting a full wax job and detailing. Has to look pretty behind the new truck. :)

And, I've just completed installing new electric waste tank valves, they've been on my wishlist for a while. Dump with a push of a button. I'm not going to miss the sticky old manual rods, that's for sure.
The July weather has been terrific, sunny and warm with many days over 25C (80F) We've been doing lots of socializing with other RVers, family, and friends. The RV park also sees a steady stream of rental RVs packed with folks from all around the world. Always interesting to chat with and hear what they think of our lovely land.
Not much else to say, its been sort of a lazy month for me. This is our 4th full RV summer here at the Thunderbird RV Park in Campbell River, BC and once again enjoying the heck out it. It's really become a home base for us. Love falling into the laid-back rhythm, long summer days surrounded by nature. Reminds me of being a kid on vacation. Cheers! Ray

A walk in the park. Something caught the old beagles interest.

Ray's Pick - Helpful RVing Website/App

I may have featured the site in the past, but it's worth another mention as it has improved a lot and also has apps for phones. Anne has been using it for her boating forecasts, but I can see it being handy for RVers planning the days travel.

The map has many layers of wind and weather information. Super cool

RVing Tip of the Month

Excellent safety reminder emailed to me by a Love Your RV reader.

Ray, a not so funny thing happened to my brother in law on the way home from camping in his almost new Montana 5th wheel and brand new Ford f350. While coming down a long hill, something stored in the back of the truck bed shifted. It pulled the break-away switch setting his camper brakes to full on.

He could not pull off the road and had to continue for a short while with the camper tires were skidding and bouncing. Lots of smoke. When he finally got off the road the break-away switch housing was melted (could not insert the plunger). He found he had no camper brakes. Well, the brake shoes were totally worn off. It was down to metal. The brake armatures had also melted.

He had to replace all four brake arms and have his tires shaved to remove flat spots. So, moral of the story, be careful what and how you store stuff in the truck bed.

Thanks for all your good info and good luck with your new truck.
You will not know u have a camper behind you. (lots of power)
