That was a great video explaining how to handle a blow-out. Thank you. It makes total sense what they say to do but I would have never thought to accelerate to maintain control. Really appreciate you sharing that video!

Hi, like the more healthy crab recipe. More like that would be welcomed.

We have been Passport America members for quite some time and have never had a problem like the writer encountered! Of course, considering it is located in California, well, you can assume anything! We most likely will never visit that state again. Was there in the 60’s and I can only imagine how it has evolved since then.

I just spent 2 months boondocking in California. Gasoline is over $1 per gallon more than in Arizona, sales tax is 8.25%, plastic bags at store checkouts that are free everywhere else cost 10 cents each. Ugh!

I think California has changed a little in those few years. But your more than welcome to come try it again. Yeah, some of us are nuts, but the rest of us are friendly. Come to Chico. It’s a small northern Cal. College town with a agricultural economic base. It’s pretty, green, a little to hot in the summer, a little expensive, but a great place to visit and base a lot of outside activities from. If your political the town is liberal, but the county is coservative. Yup, you can partake in wacky tobacky. Better yet come visit the… Read more »

Regarding safety belts for children and adults in the cabin of a motorhome. People should also consider stowing objects that they leave on the counter tops along with coffee/end tables, chairs, recliners and any other item not bolted down. A panic stop or crash can cause all of these thing to come flying towards the front of the coach where the driver and passenger can be the target. Not good.

Every Rv should have a ground hookup. Most power problems are because of a bad ground. A ground rod by the sewer? Actually it would be easy to install a ground detector right with the tank messenger, red for bad ground, green for good or whatever.
This is not rocket science but it may cost the manufacturer and extra 20 bucks. Money would come directly out of the pocket of the CEO so it will never fly, cheeeeep is best…

John, it’s not quite that simple, but for years I’ve been proposing a built-in NCVT (Non Contact Voltage Tester) that would alarm you of any RV hot-skin condition. So far no traction, but I keep trying.

Bob Difley is not correct in his reply to the folks with the Alpine motorhome about their propane tank. Propane cylinders utilized on trailers and 5th wheels must be recertified every 10 years. Tanks used on motorhome are completely different and do not have a reinspection time line. The supposedly qualified person filling the tank is supposed to do a visual inspection prior to filling. There is no expiry date on tanks even though there should be in my opinion. Cylinders and tanks are completely different in their requirements for inspections. The filler was obviously mistaken about his understanding of… Read more »

Yes you are correct. I was not clear on installed tanks in motorhomes. According to the RV Doctor, ” The rules for this type of propane container are governed by ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers). ASME tanks are not required to be re-certified since they are permanently installed. But DOT/TC cylinders, both vertical and horizontal, because they can be removed, transported and filled independently, do qualify for periodic re-certification. All propane containers, tanks and cylinders, however, should be periodically inspected, cleaned and tested for leaks. All of which should be considered preventive maintenance common sense.”

I missed the poll on rving abroad. When my husband was posted to the American Consulate in Frankfurt, Germany we shipped a pop-up camper and rved all over Europe. Had great experiences. Even camped with gypsies in Belgium.

On the beverage question, I start my day with a small bowl of oatmeal squares & skim milk, nothing separate to drink, so I guess my answer is milk, sort of.

The Fire Safety tip re: “Spontaneous combustion can occur in damp charcoal.” is a widely debunked Urban Myth grilling charcoal. Do a Google search on the quote above. NakedWhiz.com/wetcharcoal.com has a readable article consistent with other sources and contains this quote. “”The data show that the largest commercially-available bag of charcoal briquets, 9 kg (20 lb.), cannot self ignite at an ambient temperature below 394 K (121C or 250F). All tested variations: size, different formulations, addition of water or dry wood, aging, and different bag configurations, raised this critical temperature even higher. At 25C (77F ) these data show a… Read more »

We live in Ennismore, Ont., just outside Peterborough and about an hour and a half northeast of Toronto.

Saw a sign for a local plumbing company “If we were not here, you would have no place to go.” Pretty funny!
