I agree with you that sales for RV’s are at an all time high. But will there really be the mass overcrowding that you speak of? Here’s what I mean, I wonder how many of these units will be abandoned after a year, maybe two. How many will be foreclosed on? How many of these new RVer’s will become disillusioned after finding out they have bought a lemon and just give up on the whole RV experience? I don’t know how to find out this information maybe you do

Hi Chuck, Its Sunday here at the Rvillage rally. I didnt know you were here till just now. It would have been nice to have met you after reading your news letter for quite some time. If you see a lady walking around with two mini goldendoodles that will be me!

I found it very strange for you to “close for comments” on washers & dryers in RV’s! I actually didn’t have a comment, but wanted to reply the the one comment that was there & that their rig had 150 gallon fresh water tank. Sure would like to know what rig they had & what size pool they had in the living room!

Why is it that I get the newsletter every Saturday, but I never receive the weekly notes or the surveys? I’d like to chime in on the surgerys. Maybe you don’t want me to. LOL

You quit sending me my newsletters 2 weeks ago after 12 years as a member. What happened?

How about an article, or series of articles on GPSs? Especially their quirks. Our Rand McNally RVND 7710 has had us turn right instead of left ( off of I 10 exit 1
to Arizona Oasis in Ehrenburg, Az and and left instead of right also off of I 10 in Santa Rosa, Nm to Santa Rosa Campground. Over time there have been many hiccups with this unit. Call/contact Rand McNally you say. Good luck with that!

I read rvtravel most every day and enjoy the variety of articles and helpful information. I have been involved with synthetic (man-made) lubricants for 42 years and I don’t find much information anywhere in rv related literature about the benefits. Would you be interested in my preparing articles on the value and benefits of synthetics?
We are preparing to leave for about 3 months in our class A and will have time to write the articles.

Re turning off cruise control in wet road conditions, also turn it off in traffic, windy conditions, poor visibility, going up or down steep grades, approaching a hill, and any conditions that might require a quick stop or emergency steering.

Sonoma County, CA is just below Mendocino County, and has an “occupancy tax” of 14%, even for campsites. 14% is too much to ask, for a spot of dirt or a $150 hotel room.

Your advice would be greatly appreciated. I recently moved my TT a few feet from one seasonal site to another. I didn’t hook up my TT to the electrical of the truck nor did I hook up the break away cable as I moved at a speed of less than 5mph. (TT battery was hooked up) When I rehooked up to shore power my converter fan ran for 48 hours. We left the TT and unplugged it till the following week. Once plugged in again to shore power, the fan again ran for another 24 hours and at this point… Read more »

Dean: Best thing to do is to check and see what’s happening. One thing (quick and easy), hitch up your tow rig with the connector, and have someone step on the brake and hold it. Now walk around the trailer and stick your ear down by the wheels, typically you will hear a “hummm” sound when the brakes are energized. The next step is more definitive: Jack up the trailer wheels so that the wheel clears the ground. Now spin the wheel, and have someone step on the brake or activate the brake controller slide switch. That should stop the… Read more »

Dust on gravel roads. I have not turned my vent around but I do open it and turn on the fantastic fan…and reverse it …so it pressures up the trailer.

You have discovered the old time western way of keeping the dust out of the pickup…

Hmmm. Haven’t tried the open vent thing. I’d be concerned that the dust from my tow vehicle (we tow a travel trailer) would get sucked in. All our vents have MaxAir covers on them too. Reversing the vent is out of the question.
