Tip of the Day
Full-time RVers, beware of this insurance issue
From John and Kathy Huggins
People who live in their RVs more than 150 days per year are apparently considered full-timers by many insurance companies. Full-time RVers will need to obtain a full-timers comprehensive personal liability policy. This policy will change the coverage to be similar to your home insurance. Anyone injured inside your RV can make a claim against you, and this type of coverage is designed to cover such claims. Many full-timers don’t realize they need this coverage until their insurance claims are denied because their RV is their primary residence.
Another benefit of this coverage is higher limits of insurance on the contents of your rig. You are living full-time in it and the rig is your home. All that “stuff” you have should be covered. Of course, the policy premium depends on the size of the deductible you set up. We try to have a $500 emergency fund just to cover deductibles.

Save money by letting the hubby grocery shop?
Russ De Maris confesses that he’s about as “thrifty” as the next guy. After all, with the way things were breaking down one after another in their RV, all their “spare” cash was tied up. So when he got the chance to save a buck or two he was all for it. Saving money is a good thing, right? That depends on how and where you save it. Read about the results of Russ’ “fiscal food frolic.”

Random RV Thought
Here is the definition of freedom to an RVer: “A full gas tank, a full propane tank, a full water tank and empty holding tanks.” Add to that fully stocked cupboards, a full refrigerator, a road atlas and lots of free time. At that point, an RVer’s life is approaching a perfect state.
Microwave cover collapses for easy storage
When heating your food you don’t want to spend 10 minutes later cleaning the splatters inside the microwave. Here’s the solution — and perfect for RVers: it pops down flat for easy storage. Lid perforations allow steam to escape to keep food moist. Doubles as a strainer, too! Learn more or order here.

Everything you need to know about tires
Be “TireWise,” because the only things between you and the road are your tires. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Department of Transportation provide TireWise to help you make smart decisions to keep you and your family safe, whether you’re in the market to buy new tires or want to extend the life and safety of the ones on your car or truck.

Protect your RV “pigtail”
That 7-way connector on your travel trailer or fifth wheel is a critical component. When not plugged into your tow rig, the thing is susceptible to the onslaught of dirt, rain and even bugs. Here’s a plug cover that slips right over your precious plug and keeps out the crud. One user says, “This works perfectly to keep the plug on my RV clear. I remove it when not in use and place it in my ‘RV emergency tool kit.’ This way, it’s not knocked around when driving.” Learn more or order.
Blue whales can grow to 100 feet, almost the height of a ten-story building. Their hearts weigh about 400 pounds (about 1 percent of the whale’s body weight). They can call to each other even when more than 500 miles apart.
