Program lineup: #14

Mexico travel warnings – and wonders … Number One trick for Number Two problems … Renovating your RV into a “home.”

Episode 14: This podcast is for RV adventurers, DIY’ers, and those who wannabe either! Plus, RV maintenance we can do so we don’t have to wait for a service appointment. And your own thoughts on the WalMart parking situation lead off the discussion.


The RV Travel podcast is brought to you by SoftStartRV, Clear20 water filters and Teardrop Shop, which offers many great accessories for smaller trailers.

[3:20] Your comments on the long slow demise of free WalMart parking, from the RVTravel.com Facebook page.

[6:45] Te gusta Mexico? Kendall and Jennifer Jennings, the “Dashboard Drifters,” outline their personal experiences south of the border – perils, “gringo pricing” and perks of RV living part time in Mexico. [15:00] They share simple and easy renovation ideas that make your RV more like a “home.” Interior and exterior, aesthetic and practical. [26:00] Their motivation for driving away from traditional life in a stick-and-brick home. [27:30] Practical advice on maintaining their sanity while living so close together. [37:10] Crime, cartels, corruption, language barriers, culture differences, bribes and how to get along south of the border. [44:40] And a new service to match up RV Park vacancies with travelers looking for a campsite.

[50:20] Sean Lakin of Beaver Coach Sales and Service helps us maintain our RV roof whether rubber or fiberglass (and can we walk on them?), black water mistakes we make, and offers advice on how and when to get a service appointment. He touches on the red flags and critical maintenance tasks we should take seriously … including how you’re probably plugged-in wrong when you’re home and something will eventually melt – or worse!
