The communications devices available today for RVers are quite impressive compared to when I started RVing and writing for RV magazines more than 20 years ago. Talking to magazine editors meant standing in a phone booth (remember them?) and pumping in quarters until we finished our business.

It's likely that you don't think about your water heater much. As long as it turns on and you get hot water what's to think about.
But ignoring this simple maintenance procedure may cause you problems down the road and even possibly pre-mature failure and replacement.

Tune in local programming fast and easy with the Winegard SensarPro signal strength meter. Basic operation is simple: Just select scan mode and slowly rotate the Sensar antenna until the strongest signal strength is located, then run a channel scan and you will be watching your favorite local broadcast shows in standard or crisp, clear HD.

Would you like to have a large opening skylight over your bed to help cool the RV in hot weather, to allow more light, or to look out and see the stars on a clear night? Or maybe an opening skylight over the kitchen to extract cooking odors and provide additional natural lighting? You can with a custom skylight.

Stronger, tougher and more secure than a bungee cord, Davis Instruments' MiniShockle is a bungee cord on steroids. It's ideal when boating, camping, biking, motorcycle riding or anytime a load needs to be solidly and safely held in place.

The first line that Ezra Pound wrote in 1912 in his poem, Ancient Music, was "Winter is icumen in." But for RVers it's the third line which states, "Raineth drop and staineth slop" that reminds us that winter not only brings cold and wind, but also "staineth slop" that soils our carpets and not only looks awful but also shortens the lifespan of your RV's carpeting.

Roof vents are a terrific feature of RVs. They allow a flow of air to circulate thru the RV, light to help brighten the interior, and a vent with a cover can be left open in a storm for air flow without letting the rain in.

Just as small feet have been desirable in cultures going back hundreds of years, large feet on a fifth-wheel trailer are considered desirable, and could garner appreciative (if not covetous) stares from fellow RVers.

This is a test. Open your engine compartment. Do you see remnants of acorns. If you do, you have squirrels considering moving in with you. If you don't, you don't have any squirrels in your neighborhood or campground - yet.
