One of the coolest things about RVing is that your potential to choose your surroundings is limitless. When you live in an RV, who is there to tell you where to go, or how long to stay? You are nomadic and flexible. If something catches your eye, you are free chase it on a whim, without sacrificing stability and safety. Are you ready for that freedom?
Imagine living everywhere at once. The whole world is your backyard, the greatest natural wonders your view out the window over a cup of coffee. Total freedom of movement, total independence from the work-a-day world. That’s the spirit of RVing.
We often feel disconnected from nature in our daily lives. Depending on where you live, it may be difficult to simply take some time each day to venture out into nature and experience the sights and sounds of wild flora and fauna, or clearly see the sunset or the stars in the night sky. When you take an RV trip, though, all of this is convenient and nearby, offering you the freedom to experience natural wonder like you’ve never been able to before.
One major worry that you may have before setting off on a long-term RV trip is this: How will we leave our friends and family behind? Won’t we get lonely? There are many RVing communities in Facebook groups and message boards that can connect you with new people to meet anywhere you travel. Don’t be shy; start your adventure!
Our theme for July is freedom, so it’s the perfect time to suggest this great RV blog, “RV to Freedom.” If you’re considering going “full time,” these folks have all the advice you need to make the leap! https://rvtofreedom.com/
rvtofreedom.com It's our mission to get you on the road as a full-time RVer. Learn all about transitioning your stationary life to one of travel with Kerensa and Brandon.
Imagine traveling free of itineraries. You stop where you want, when you want, and there’s always a good reason to extend the trip. That’s the beauty of the RV life.
There are always excuses not to travel. Home is where our loved ones are, as well as all of our belongings, and it’s the place where we feel most comfortable. It can be tough to get that level of comfort on the road, and efforts to find it can be expensive. That’s why RVing is so amazing: it removes all of those worries and gives you the freedom to see the world!
America is all about freedom, but one often underrated freedom we have is the freedom to travel across so many beautiful and diverse climates and landscapes. Compare Florida and Wyoming, for instance: two lands that couldn’t be more different, yet both part of the same beautiful country—and both just a comfortable RV trip away!
There’s nothing that drives an RVer more than freedom and independence, and that makes the Fourth of July our favorite holiday. Have a safe and fun Fourth, friends!

Did you know bacteria can grow in your fuel system? It can and does, as bacteria thrives on water and warm temperatures. First identity the source of water in the fuel tank and eliminate it, or use a dehydrating additive. Consider adding BioBor or a similar diesel-fuel additive available at truck stops and auto parts stores.
Have you ever overheated while towing a dinghy vehicle? It’s easy to do in extreme temperatures. Here’s a tip that can keep your engine from overheating when the temperature gauge is spiking to the right: Shut off the dash air-conditioner, open the windows and turn on the heater (not defrost, which uses the air compressor, too) as hot as it can go with high fan speed. This often reduces the coolant temperature by 10 to 15 degrees. Then pull off and let things cool down before heading back out on the road. NEVER drive with an overheated engine!
Don’t overlook a once-over for your on-board generator. Gensets should have their oil and filter changed annually, fuel filter replaced, and air filter checked and serviced if needed. Your owner’s manual can point you toward other maintenance procedures you should be aware of as well.

The heat of the summer can drain the water in your batteries faster. Also, if there’s heavy battery use, they’ll drain quicker as well. Be sure to check the electrolyte level regularly and top off with distilled water for longer battery life.
Be sure to sanitize your fresh water tanks. Follow these steps about once a month during the hot days of summer:
• Fill the water tank half full.
• Add a solution of 1/4-cup household bleach and 1 gallon of water for every 15 gallons of tank capacity.
• Open all the faucets until all air has been bled from the system and the water coming out has the odor of the bleach solution before shutting off the taps.
• After three to five hours, drain the water system and refill it with fresh water
• Run water through all faucets and then drain the system again.
Here’s a YouTube video on how to clean your hot and cold water tanks from RV Geeks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jEepug8N-aE
Updated! We show you how to thoroughly sanitize both hot and cold sides of your RV's fresh water system. Don't have a winterizing kit? No problem! Here's the...
Have you changed the sacrificial anode in your coach’s water heater lately? Maybe never? When the tank is drained is the best time to check it. What these anodes do is they get used up in the electrolytic process, preventing damage to the tank. Anodes should be inspected annually for deterioration. How long they last depends on how much you use your coach.
Pay special attention to the mechanics of your RV. Set tire pressure and check fluid levels in the engine and genset, differential and transmission.
Now’s the time check the maintenance records and determine what tasks were complete prior to storage and which are due now. Predictive maintenance can mean no down time on the road.
First, check your motor home from top to bottom, inspecting for any damage. Be sure to pay special attention to tires and seals around windows. And don’t forget to check the roof!
It’s time to get your motor home ready for summer adventure! This month we’ll be sharing on how you can set off safely and ready for relaxation – with no (unhappy) surprises along the way. #RVLife #MotorhomeFinders
Have your documentation in order if you park your RV in a storage facility. Evidence of insurance and vehicle registration are required by RV storage facilities.
[03/27/19] If you are going to leave your R.V. in storage for an extended period of time you should remove all food items to keep insects and rodents from being attracted to your R.V.
[03/26/19] Before storing your RV, be sure to shutdown appliances, empty tanks and close windows. This includes defrosting and cleaning the fridge, emptying your RV holding tanks, cleaning the AC filters, and checking all locks and hinges to make sure they are secure.
[03/25/19] Now's the time to make any needed repairs and clean your RV thoroughly before storing it. Repair the tears in any fabric, including the awnings. Seal any cracks and holes. Wash the outside and polish your RV from top to bottom. Take care of any dents or scratches you find if possible. Grease your tires well to prevent the rubber from cracking during storage.
Whether you store your RV indoors or out, you should consider investing in a good RV cover. Covers come in many sizes and colors and should fit your vehicle snugly. Also make sure it’s made of breathable materials, allowing air to circulate freely in our RV and prevent mold and mildew from forming.
If you’re about to wrap up your winter RV travel season, you’ll want to take some extra steps to insure it will not only be ready for next season, but will maintain its value should you go to resale. This month, we’ll give you tips on how to safely store your RV, beginning with this one: First choice of storage should be an enclosed space. If not available at home, remember RV dealerships, campgrounds and many storage companies offer enclosed RV storage.
Few things require more precision than maneuvering a luxury motor home into a tight space. But if you and your travel partner develop a system of hand signals rather than shouted directives, your neighbors, your travel buddy and your sanity will thank you.
