Hi, I’m not sure where to submit letter to editor so I’m doing it here. If it isn’t the right place, can you lead me to it… My wife and I just recently, very recently (2 weeks), joined the full time RV’r community but have been following RV Travel Newsletters for years preparing. We decided to full time upon retirement and have been planning for about 12 years. We have been camping with our RV for 5 years as often as possible to learn the ‘ropes’ and prepare for the lifestyle change. We went from over an acre of yard… Read more »

Your article about cheap places to stay is a bit misleading. I kind of expected a list of places to stay where you could actually camp and enjoy yourself rather than just a place to park overnight. Although that information is somewhat useful the article was not represented correctly and was a pay service that I think most people would be disappointed with. I know I was not satisfied with it at all.

Hi Chuck,

As usual, great newsletter

Do you have any idea what type of guns RV’ers travel with? We have just received our FL weapons permits and before we leave for camp hosting for 4 months we’re conflicted as what to purchase

Thanks Fred & Linda

Fred and Linda,

I have no idea. I have not carried a gun in 35 years of RVing, never felt the need. Perhaps others can weigh in. — Chuck/editor

Note to Gary Bunzer and the reader who talked about the need, or lack there of, to be level while using the refrigerator while traveling. Of great importance, and not discussed in this article, was the danger of keeping the propane on while motoring. It can be very dangerous.

Has anyone considered writing WalMart and thanking them for allowing overnight RV parking and saying you appreciate the convenience and you do shop at those stores? I have. WalMart head office address is: 702 SW 8th St., Bentonville, AR 72716. Isn’t an overnight parking spot worth the price of a stamp?

So who are we blaming, the democratics or the republicans? Maybe all politicians? I bought my motorhome to forget the problems in the world and enjoy life while I can

I have followed all of the comments about the residential refrigerators in RV’s and there are valid points on both sides. But with all of that being said why isn’t the OEM embracing technology like RV Comfort Systems Hybrid Gas/Electric Furnace Systems. This hybrid system has been available for over 4 years, its UL Listed, RVIA compliant and CSA the gas furnace certification agency has said it does not affect the ANSI listing on the gas furnaces. Multiple OEM’s have been made aware of this product and not one has opted to offer it as an option. Instead the answer… Read more »

I tend to agree with the subscriber last week that said he was unsubscribing to this newsletter because there was so much negative content. I was also disappointed that you spent even more space defending it. Have you considered the reason for your growing subscriptions is the very thing you complain about the most, too many RVs and thus we all have to work a little harder to find good camping spots. Get past the “good ole days” when you could just show up most anywhere and find a spot. Those days are gone. I have been “full timing” for… Read more »

Would you rather focus on Trailer Life or Motorhome magazines that are entirely advertisements for stuff sold by Camping World? I subscribe to this newsletter because he tells the truth and because the others did not. To me, Chuck’s occasional rants are worth reading just to get the rest of the newsletter. Keep at it, Chuck!

Thanks, Glen. Yes, I rant on occasion but it’s mostly in response to what I experience and how I feel about it. — Chuck

Chuck I have been reading all your articles for over 10 years. After renting an rv and traveling cross country w my kids I was hooked. For over 10 years I have done nothing but dream about traveling in a Motorhome to see this great country and all our national parks. Even though I have not traveled yet I’ve been following you and many others. It’s a bit disheartening to hear about the poor workmanship on rv’ s since 2008 and the lack of places to stay. My dream remains and I’m hoping that maybe this year or next will… Read more »

One of the subjects I would like to see addressed in your magazine are the problems that arise from the Ham radio operator and the issues with antennas, radios, and grounding for RF in the RV. . Many full time, part time RVers are also Ham radio operators Running HF antennas in campgrounds or attaching an antenna to a fiberglass body with no ground plane and controlling the RF can be a problem. Having it set up so not to interfere with all the electronics going into RVs can be a problem. Just a thought.

I’ve been toying with the idea of getting my ham license since I was an avid shortwave listener back in my early teen years (with a Hallicrafters S85). I do have a colleague who’s a ham and antenna designer, plus another friend I’ve worked with for decades is an RF engineer for many of the local radio stations. So it would be fun to wrap my head around all the issues of mobile ham operation. One more thing to do on my growing list of things to do.

Chuck, Howdy;

I’m not sure I understand the reasoning behind parsing the ‘News” section to another tab. As the entire newsletter is a continuous scroll
All we readers need to do is position the cursor over the \/ and tap it to move on down. A lot more convenient then opening a new tab to do the same scrolling then closing the tab to resume where we where before we had to take the detour …

Linda

I agree. I hate that everything opens to a new tab.

Chuck Woodbury

Linda, how might we do it differently? We present so much information that I don’t see another way to do it. I would appreciate your thoughts. Chuck/editor

As to “quiting KOA” I thought blood letting was discontinued centuries ago. Great example of corporate incompetence and greed.

Thanks to you, and the Doctor for supplying the new section on pets! Almost everywhere we go, RV folks always have their pets with them. In fact if we go somewhere without our Josie the Beagle, we have doggy withdrawal and look for another dog to show affection to in the place we are staying.

Banish black scuff marks on a Vinyl or other types off flooring by rubbing it with a tennis ball. This was a daily chore by a 40year school custodian. Also keep the floors clean and also keep them properly waxed.
