GOODWILL is not a charity. CEO and owner Mark Curran profits $2.3 million a year.Goodwill is a very catchy name for his business. You donate to his business and then he sells the items for
PROFIT. He pays nothing for his products and pays his workers minimum wage! Nice Guy.
$0.00 goes to help anyone!
Stop giving to this man

How can a fellow RVer get information out on a bad merchant? This newsletter should be helpful in preventing bad experiences. We need to be able to warn others.

I am retiring, traveling to warmer country for the winter and eill be full-timing soon. I also need to upgrade my small-size Garmin Nuvi. Is the larger 7″ screen, and the GPS’s that are more specific to RV’ing worth the higher price?

It was to us. The 7″ screen is much easier to see and it can be programmed to your specific vehicle size. We have been using ours for several years and find it easy to use but always confirm directions to campgrounds because in some areas of the country we have found addresses are not 100% accurate

Thank you for your comments. The information you supplied was very helpful, especially since our desire is to explore small towns and backroads rather than cruise along interstates.

What is the cheapest way to clean the exterior of my RV?

Dish soap, container, long handled (preferably adjustable) brush, hose w/spray nozzle, and elbow-grease :0) If you do it regularly, it is easy to clean. If you don’t, you’ll need a ladder and a non-abrasive scrubber to get the bugs off. Actually, you may need the ladder and scrubber if the front of your trailer has been bombarded by insects…or…save your nickles and spend the money for a power washing service..

I would avoid dish soap….too harsh and will strip away waxes, etc. Use a soap specifically for vehicles, they also can add a little shine. Use a bug remover spray and let it sit for 15 minutes, the brushing will make removal much easier.

Chuck: really enjoyed your down sizing article. When I went from my house to full timing RV it was surprising how freeing it was to get rid of stuff that was tieing me down! I have never had to buy anything that I got rid of. !

Happy trails!

“Random RV Thought
Unless your motorhome or tow vehicle is “headlights always on,” always switch to your parking lights when driving in a campground after dark. ”

Uhh NO. Headlights are on for SAFETY so I can SEE where I am DRIVING and avoid running over someone, dogs or something and avoid running into something.

If you go slow enough your parking lights should be sufficient. You especially want to reduce lighting when you are stopped/parked and in the process of disconnecting. If you are going to be stationary, go to parking lights so you are not lighting up your neighbor.

How do you get rid of the ads that encroach on the articles? You cannot read them without trying to guess what the words are underneath them.

. I have the same problem. It is a real nuisance and it’s almost impossible to read the article without making up words.

I am trying to get rid of these. I thought I had it figured out. Apparently not. Sorry about the hassle. — Chuck (editor)
