Editor’s corner

With Chuck Woodbury   

Areader whose husband had recently died wrote asking for advice about what to do with her travel trailer. She knew nothing about the RV and decided her days of RVing were over.

It made us wonder what other readers would do upon the loss of a spouse. Would they continue to travel with the RV, or maybe buy a smaller one, or simply sell the RV and be done with RVing?

I have met many single men who lost their spouses, who then carried on. Some fell in love all over again, lucky them. But it seems to me it’s harder for women who lost their husbands. Yes, many want to continue RVing: they jump right in. But others are hesitant, even fearful. I usually refer them to the club RVingWomen.com, where they can meet and network with other women who have “been there.”

What would you do? We’d love to hear your thoughts. The fact is, many of us with significant others will one day face this situation.

We welcome your thoughts.

THREE REASONS TO CELEBRATE

I am happy to report that we have now published more than 9,000 articles on this website, and we’re fast approaching 10,000. Our database of subscribers has topped 131,000 (up from 100,000 earlier this year). Also, later this month we will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the first issue of this newsletter. Where did the time go?

MEET YOUR FELLOW READERS

We asked you last week to tell us about yourself. We wondered who reads this newsletter. We know that thousands of you have followed us for a decade or more — and we’ve met some of you. But who else, we wonder, reads what we write week after week? We’d love to meet you. Here’s our first installment of Meet our Readers.

I hope you are enjoying your Labor Day weekend. Stay safe! But please, no drinking and driving! Root beer is okay.

Losing cell service? Try these tips to reconnect or keep the signal

If you are heading out of town, into the mountains or desert or other remote areas, you might start to see your cell signal dropping off. There goes one bar, and another, and another… And you were JUST about to send that email too… Darn! Here are a few tips to reconnect if your signal seems to be fading away or if the bars keep dropping.

RV sales people: Which customer service approach wins the sale?

By Keith Ward
I’m shopping for my very first RV (gulp). That means tons of Internet research, including forums, YouTube videos, etc. It means budgeting, and not buying more RV than I can afford. It also means talking to multiple RV sales reps. And boy, they are not all the same. … I’ve been working with two reps in particular, representing the top contenders for the travel trailer I’m going to get. I’m shocked at how different the reps are, and how much better one is than the other. Read more.

Walking sticks provide surprising bonus to your exercise routine

One challenge for RV enthusiasts is how to efficiently store sometimes bulky exercise equipment. Walking sticks can be stored about anywhere. Folding bikes and collapsible kayaks help define the axiom of big things in small spaces. But there’s another likely unheralded option — walking sticks. They’re available in fixed length, adjustable styles and folding varieties and are ideal for campground walkabouts or more adventurous treks. Continue reading.

Our secret to finding the best places in a new town

By Barry Zander
My wife, Monique, was prepared for the worst, her teeth already clenched in anticipation. She knew that I was about to make some stupid remark to the sales clerk as I tried on a funny hat and made some asinine attempt at humor. But the clerk was ready to console her. She reached over and, as she gently patted Monique’s arm, she said softly, “Don’t worry, Dearie. I’ve got one at home just like that!” Read more for Barry’s great tip.

By Nanci Dixon

Time to pull out your Instant Pot! Try this delicious soup recipe

By Nanci Dixon
In a recent poll, 37% of you responded that you have an Instant Pot® but don’t use it very often. Same with me! I love my Instant Pot but don’t use it nearly enough. I am not a great cook – heck, I’m not even a good cook – but almost everything I make in the Instant Pot comes out great. And it even saves on propane and keeps the RV cooler than cooking on the stove. Read more, then try the recipe and let us know how you liked it.

Since 2012, this long-term exhibition of Dale Chihuly’s work has featured gallery spaces, a sculpture garden and a glasshouse designed by the artist.

RV Fire Safety

Steps to extinguish a fire

There is a simple way to remember the steps to using your extinguisher to fight a fire — it’s called the P.A.S.S. procedure. These are the four steps to follow:

  • Pull the pin: This unlocks the operating lever and allows you to discharge the contents of the extinguisher.
  • Aim low: Point the nozzle or hose at the base of the fire.
  • Squeeze the lever above the handle: This discharges the extinguishing agent. Releasing the lever will stop the discharge.
  • Sweep from side to side: Moving carefully toward the fire, keep the extinguisher aimed at the base of the fire and sweep back and forth until flames appear to be out.

I would like to think I would continue camping should I lose my husband. I’m the one who was more interested and got us started, but he does a lot of the ‘work’, it would depend on how my health is whether I continue.

My husband has been encouraging me to watch and learn so if something does happen to him, I can choose to continue Rving. Last camping trip I set up with his watching over me…Next time I am to do it myself. I would encourage everyone who loves camping to learn and be able to continue enjoying it if something does happen to a spouse.

I am fine keeping our 32 ft Class C and traveling ,camping alone, but I would probably downsize to a class B. I would not need as much room and I would not feel the need to tow addition vehicle, which usually my wife takes care of.
No I would never stop RVing as long as I was physically able.

Ideally, if I am the one left, I would be able to dispose of my current rig and find something smaller. I guess it would also depend on my age and health at the time.

Hopefully, either my husband or I would keep our 26’ Class C with a Jeep towed to continue the adventure. Maybe downsize to a Class B without a towed to simplify.

We moved into a 36′ Class A full-time with the intention of traveling, however my husband has severe health issues that I am afraid to be somewhere alone when he gets sick. I do all the hook-ups and break downs. We are now planted in an RV park. If I outlive him I have every intention of getting a smaller rig and getting out there.

I did! I traded the big truck and 5th wheel for a gently used Class C. I bought a good extended warranty and hit the road for 2.5 years. It was cathartic to afford myself that time to grieve, heal, make new friends and re-discover myself.

In 2016 my family and my mother all went to Quebec down thru Maine and Boston and thru Pennsylvannia and home. That was loaded with issues. When we came home my husband was done camping. I wasn’t so sure so I looked at a trailer thinking if he is done I can sell the pop up. He saw that and changed his mind. That is when in 2018 I traded the sleeps three trailer for a bunk model. We went to Colorado, Utah, Arizona and back the bottom portion of Colorado and home. Completed almost my mothers buck list. Then she died last April of cancer. That is when I realized my days of camping with mom was over. I thought about selling it and be done. But my daughter changed my mind and we went camping over the 4th. My daughter fly to NYC to be with friends during the camping trip and I thought wow husband and I can do things together. That was not the case. He curled up in front of his computer and disappeared with no intentions of doing anything camping wise.

Reply to  jillie

My addendum to the post? I found out he no longer was interested in camping. My daughter was but not him. So unless she goes he is not interested. Otherwise the trailer sits on our driveway. I guess I need to take the reins and make it the mother daughter and no more my mother comes with us trips Sad really. So my daughter and I are looking at going to Alaska next year without the husband. Then after she moves? I will be going solo. No husband. He would rather sit at home with his computer Me? I am looking at workamping jobs after retirement. So now on to autumn and one more camping trip in a few weeks as a family. Then after that? Solo. RIP mom. It was fun.

No way I am stopping. My husband has turned into kind of a fuddy duddy so I am thinking I might venture out on my own. I want to fulfill my dreams before I die. While I would dearly love to go together, we just don’t seem the same anymore. I am 70,

My husband died in 2018 of pancreatic cancer. We enjoyed traveling and the rallies. I couldn’t drive our 2001 Class A so I contacted the dealer where we purchased it new. He gave me $2,000 and sold it for $24,000. I miss camping and the friends we made but I don’t know if I’d enjoy it without my husband.

My husband and I also have a travel trailer and usually I do all the inside set up, take care of pets while he does the outside work. No I don’t think I would be able to connect/disconnect from the truck, put down the jacks. It is also too big for me to drive – only 24 ft . However, loving the ability to travel in my self contained unit, especially with COVID, would probably trade to a drive RV, smaller and keep RVing.

I am not sure if I would have the same enjoyment without my husband. I would have to give it a try but I’d certainly change to a smaller rig right away. I don’t need all the space he likes.

I lost my best friend and wife in April 2020. Everyday is hard, but I decided I couldn’t/ wouldn’t sit in this house everyday. I took our 40’ DRV 5th wheel, which we loved, out once after she left and decided I could handle it by myself, but also that I didn’t want to. Sold it and bought a new Northern Lite slide in truck camper for my dualities. Perfect for one and helps fill the lonely days.
