Program lineup: #19 podcast: Industry news, dog poop, bad backers and more gripes … get them off your chest. Plus, a recall that could save your life!

(Trigger warning: dog poop is discussed at length and in detail 🙂 .

Get it off your chest! Kate Doherty of shares her list of gripes, pet peeves, and all that annoying stuff that gets on our nerves … or are you “that guy”? It’s your chance to vent, too. Go ahead, yell back at the phone or computer … just pick up after your dog, please. It’s all in good fun! We also cover news you can use, including a recall that could save your life.

See full description of the podcast below.


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

This week’s show

[3:45] First, the news: A new Class B, pay to dump – on top of your camping fee!

[7:10]Kate Doherty of shares her experience as a camp host and RV traveler … bad neighbors, wacky parking gaffes, and those campsite neighbors that drive you nuts. We’ll start the ever-expanding list, which you’ll be adding to … when you’re not rolling your eyes.

There’s psychology and self-defense, and we’ll arm you with both … giving you tools and tactics to make your RV experience more positive despite the screaming kids or sleeping drunks in your parking place.

We’ll look inward – will you? – and figure out if we, too, are sometimes part of the problem. We define “minimal friendliness” at a campground, cover some of the faux pas we’re unwittingly committing, and discuss how to get along with camp hosts and next-site neighbors.

Backing and sewer hookup nightmares are a podcast all their own, but we cover some of the wackiest examples, rivaled only by leveling challenges. And the scary part? It’s not all newbies and renters.

[29:30] Kate explains how to use your air horn strategically, addresses the sinking feeling that drivers are getting worse, not better, and we recall those forehead-slapping goofs that we’ve all lived to tell about.

[50:20] And more news: This recall could keep your rig from going up in flames.
