Tip of the Day
Don’t forget about this storage space
Check for storage space behind the sofa. Sometimes a short, folding ladder can be stored there. This may also be a place for mops or brooms. It is a bit inconvenient but storing long items in an RV is often difficult to do since the tallest place is often the closet. Other items to store behind the couch are the screens from the front driver and passenger window and (if a front entry coach) the door screen, too. This will make driving through scenic country much more pleasant. Thanks to Ron Jones, AboutRVing.com.
Easily and safely dispose of cooking grease
Don’t run grease down your RV drains – it can really clog things up. So when cooking a greasy pot of soup or stew, drop in some ice cubes and stir. The grease will cling to the cubes. Quickly fish them out and toss them in the garbage.
Random RV Thought
When you stay the night in a hotel or motel, you have to be careful you don’t leave something behind. But when you travel by RV, your room comes along with you, so you don’t have to worry about forgetting something.
Website of the day
Volunteering with the Corps of Engineers
The Corps of Engineers, which is the steward of almost 12 million acres of land and water including some of the best public campgrounds, offers many volunteer opportunities including camp hosting positions. See what’s available in your area or where you plan to travel.
And the Survey Says…

• Fifty-six percent love music but do not play a musical instrument.
• Fifty-eight percent insure their RV on a separate policy from their passenger vehicle.

Mike Cooper, manager of an English RV dealership, probably couldn’t believe his luck when he sold two motorhomes to the same couple. The indecisive buyers had difficulty choosing between two models. So they bought them both!
