How to Drive a Motorhome/RV — Driving Tips: Off-Tracking & Rear Overhang
 
07:45
Turning an RV's steering wheel creates a couple of situations that require special attention. 3DR Solo aerial footage makes it clearer than ever what happens when you go around a corner with an RV! We always make a point of mentioning that we're not professionals when it comes to RV repair and maintenance. We get lots of kind comments about the clarity of our instructional videos, and people sometimes assume at least one of us has a teaching background. That is indeed the case. For the first time, we can remove the "we're not professionals" disclaimer, because one of us Geeks is indeed a former professional... in the driving realm. Peter's resume as a motorcoach operator and driving instructor is substantial. Not only did he drive tour buses in a big city, but he was also the Safety & Training Manager for one of the largest bus companies in North America. He designed and ran the training program, hiring and training hundreds of professional drivers, and dozens of driving instructors, over the years. In addition, his driving prowess in the American Public Transit Association's annual Bus Roadeo driving competition earned him a shelf full of trophies. We intend for this to be the first of many RVgeeks Driving School videos, designed to share the concepts required to master the operation of a large vehicle, and increase safety on the road. We get so many questions about driving, that we thought it was about time we shared something from a bona fide expert's point of view.

Clean Your RV's Gray Water Tank & Sensors
 
01:40
Besides water, an RV gray tank (or "grey" if you trend more British) takes in lots of greasy, sticky substances. These include food particles & residue from preparing meals and washing dishes, soap, shampoo, toothpaste & even body oils. After a while, it can gum up your holding tank sensors, causing a false reading on your tank monitors. Cleaning out the gray tank and sensors is a really simple task, since there's a readily available liquid designed to break up all of the crud that can build up in the tank: automatic dishwasher detergent. The gel type is easy to flush down the drain, and goes right to work breaking down and dislodging greasy build-up. To calibrate the holding tank monitors in your RV, follow the steps outlined in our video: http://youtu.be/DvVGBFdJ_vo To clean your gray tank, simply choose a day when you're about to take a long road trip to a full hook-up RV park. Just start off with about a half-full gray tank, pour about one cup of automatic dishwashing detergent gel into one of the sinks, and wash it down the drain with plenty of hot water. Then spend a few hours on the road, allowing the sloshing action in the tank to work with the detergent to break up any nasty gunk that's accumulated. The longer and twistier the road the better, but a few hours of agitation should be plenty. Once you arrive at your full hook-up campground (a dump station will of course work fine as well), simply pull the gray valve and dump the tank. All of the greasy gunk that was stuck to the tank will get flushed out with the water. If your "3/4" or "full" light is the one staying on, start your trip with a fuller tank, which will ensure good water agitation on that sensor. But since the heaviest buildup is generally in the lower part of the tank, 1/2 tank or so should provide a good combination of water and empty space for strong agitation and sloshing as you drive. If the first try doesn't clear up the problem, just try it again on your next long road trip. It's so easy and inexpensive that another attempt is no big deal. Once your tank is clean, your sensors should work fine and any odors you may have been experiencing should be eliminated or reduced as well (yes, gray tanks can smell too).

Microwave Corn on the Cob — No Shucking & Silk-Free!
 
01:44
Make PERFECT corn on the cob every time - NUKE IT in your microwave oven! No shucking & no silk mess. Whether you live in an RV (like us) or a house, the corn microwaving trick rocks! Leave the corn right in the husk... no need to shuck it. You only need to trim the end off if the ears are too big to fit in the microwave. Each ear takes four minutes on high power, so we set our microwave to 12 minutes for 3 ears. When they're done cooking they'll be steaming hot, so be sure to use oven mitts to avoid getting burned. Using a sharp knife cut off the large end of the ear. Even though you'll lose a row or two of kernels, you want to cut above the point where the stalk connects to the cob. Then grab the husk at the small end and squeeze the ear of corn out the other side. Microwaving works like a charm and will leave your corn perfectly cooked and virtually silk-free every time!

HOW TO: Prevent RV Roof Leaks (Dicor Maintenance)
 
03:28
Just about everything attached to the roof of an RV is a potential entry point for water. The TV antenna, vent fans, satellite dish, plumbing vents, solar panel mounts or anything else screwed into, or transitioning through the roof to the interior are places that invite leaks. FEATURED & RELATED PRODUCTS AVAILABLE ON AMAZON: Dicor self-leveling lap sealant: http://amzn.to/2EgogKF Caulk Gun: http://amzn.to/2DVOw9G The main line of defense against water damage is vigilance — periodic inspection of the Dicor waterproof sealant. Dicor self-leveling lap sealant is ubiquitous in the RV industry, sealing roofs on everything from pop-up trailers to diesel pusher motorhomes and everything in between. The best way to avoid ever developing a leak in your RV is to check the roof at least a couple of times a year, looking for any cracks in the Dicor. One of the surest signs that an owner is meticulous in caring for their RV is to look for the tell-tale signs of Dicor patching on the roof. Dicor develops small cracks over time, and the periodic application of fresh Dicor to cover those cracks leads to the patchwork look of a well-maintained roof. Dicor is available at just about any camping supply store or RV dealer, and requires only a standard caulk gun to apply. Before applying new sealant, just clean the area to be patched with mineral spirits. We have a fiberglass roof but if you have a rubber (EPDM) roof, it's OK to clean the Dicor with mineral spirits. Just go easy on the quantity, being sure not to soak the rubber. WONDERING WHAT'S THE BEST GEAR TO USE ON YOUR RV?

Keep Your RV Gray Tank Open? Closed? How About BOTH?!
 
02:54
Leaving your RV's gray valve open when fully hooked up allows you to take long showers without worrying about dumping or filling up the gray tank. But what about sewer smells that can come up from the campground sewer system? Here's how to get the best of both worlds! FEATURED & RELATED PRODUCTS AVAILABLE ON AMAZON: Slunky sewer hose support: http://amzn.to/2DVAC7l 360 Siphon Vents: http://amzn.to/2EFuMby Clear Sewer Elbow: http://amzn.to/2DVAzIH Clear Sewer Adapter: http://amzn.to/2FHNO0j 20′ Heavy Duty Sewer Hose: http://amzn.to/2E8BKYO One of the luxuries of staying in a full-hook-up campground is the ability to use water freely for showers, cooking and washing dishes. The sewer connection allows you to leave your RV’s gray valve open, so water can run right out instead of filling up your gray tank. Of course the black valve can NEVER be left open, since "solids" will build up in the black holding tank when the "liquids" run out. But there's a fair amount of discussion about the gray valve. Some people recommend that you should never leave the gray valve open either, as it can allow odors from the park’s sewer system up into your RV. Of course leaving the valve closed means having to pay attention to the water level in the gray tank, and dumping it every few days. Seems like a shame to have to do that when your RV is connected to a sewer line, especially when you’re staying in a full hook-up site for an extended period of time. Since the drains under every sink and shower in an RV are equipped with a p-trap, leaving the gray valve open shouldn't allow odors into the RV. The water in the traps blocks odors from entering the RV's living space. Long periods without use can allow the water in the traps to evaporate, and driving on twisty or bumpy roads can cause it to slosh out. But both of these situations are easily remedied by running a small amount of water down each drain. There is, however, a pipe with a direct connection to the sewer hose…. connecting to the tank vents on the roof of the RV. This can allow air from the sewer system to come up through the roof vents. If you’ve ever smelled sewer odors in a full hook-up campground, it’s possible that someone’s RV is venting the park’s sewer system out through their roof. In a recent RV Travel newsletter, we read about the simplest way imaginable to enjoy the luxury of a full hook-up RV park. You can leave your gray valve in the open position so water runs right down the drain. You don't have to pay any attention to how full your gray tank is and you don’t have to dump it every few days. But there's no chance for sewer odors to escape either. It's the best of both worlds. Watch the video to see how we did it! Please use your full hook-up powers responsibly and don't waste water!

HOW TO: Hook Up an RV
 
04:34
Connecting an RV to full hookups at an RV park or campground isn't too difficult, but if you've never done it before, this quick tutorial will get you started. Even if you've been RVing for years, you might pick up a quick tip or two to improve your routine. FEATURED & RELATED PRODUCTS AVAILABLE ON AMAZON: Slunky Sewer Hose Support: http://amzn.to/2GI1QQy Water Pressure Regulator with Gauge: http://amzn.to/2GKmP5B RV Dogbone Power Adapters: http://amzn.to/2DY3LPq RECENT & RELATED VIDEOS: Dogbone Electrical Adapters 101: http://youtu.be/wVYBei5BZmw RV Hold Tank Dumping 1-2-3: http://youtu.be/gZFyfsy4ptw Holding Tank Dumping & Cleaning: http://youtu.be/I6sv4d3PsTo For example, do you spray disinfectant on your campsite's water spigot before you connect your water hose? If not, think about one of the last things you do when disconnecting... you rinse out your sewer hose. Of course that means the RVer who used your site last night probably did the same thing. Think about that for a second, and if you don't already keep a can of Lysol in your water compartment, you'll probably get one pretty quick. ;-) We love boondocking (camping without RV hook-ups), taking full advantage of our ability to live comfortably off the grid for extended periods. But there's something wonderful about taking a regular shower vs a navy shower, microwaving dinner without firing up the generator and watching TV late at night without depleting your house batteries. These luxuries require hooking up in a campground. When it comes time to connect to water, sewer and electric, following a few standard procedures can make your stay a better one.

How To Dump & Clean an RV Black Tank

We demonstrate how to dump RV waste water holding tanks and thoroughly clean the black tank. Keeping your sewage tank super clean requires following a few simple procedures which will make it stay odor-free.

Even those RVers who use a black tank flush system often don't utilize the most important piece of equipment necessary to monitor the cleanliness of the black tank: a clear sewer elbow. And even using a clear sewer elbow on your camper isn't enough. As we demonstrate, using a black tank flush connection, and plenty of water STILL won't do the job. Using the proper technique is essential for maintaining the black tank and keeping it clean and odor-free. We go through the step-by-step instructions for making sure that your RV holding tanks stay clean and fresh, making your motorhome, travel trailer or fifth wheel a nicer place to be. We'll also cover a few basics about sewer connections, flush valve use, toilet chemicals and special techniques for cleaning and deodorizing a problem sewage holding tank.

Annual RV Maintenance & Spring Cleaning

How To Maintain RV Slide-Out Seals
 
04:02
RV slide-out rooms have both inner and outer seals (I also refer to them as gaskets, but seals is probably the more accurate word). They keep the slides sealed against the elements whether they are extended or retracted. Keeping them working smoothly is a quick and easy once-a-year maintenance item... probably the simplest task on our annual spring cleaning list! lol Here's how to get under the slide toppers! https://youtu.be/0vIL93AeaDs Although there are commercial products available for lubricating slideout seals, when we picked up our new motorhome from Newmar, they recommended that we simply rub them with baby powder / talcum powder once a year, and nothing else would be required. This has worked well for us over the 7 years we've owned our RV, and avoids the cost of commercial products. Another benefit of baby powder is that it doesn't attract dust and dirt the way many liquid products can. Our slide-out room seals look pretty much brand new, even after nearly 7 years of full-timing. If your manufacturer recommends some other method, by all means follow their recommendation, but we're pleased with this method and highly recommend giving it a try.

How To Make Easy-Peeling Hard-Boiled Eggs - Perfect for Easter!
 
03:02
UPDATE: For Easter, add 2 teaspoons of white vinegar to the water to help eggs color more evenly. Also, as a few of people have been reporting that their particular brand of eggs tend to crack when dropped into boiling water right out of the fridge, try leaving them on the counter for an hour or two to warm slightly before putting them in the water. This will help avoid cracking. April 11, 2012 is our 9-year anniversary on the road! To celebrate, here's a non-RV-specific video. lol OK.... so this video isn't just for RVers, but it is a truly egg-cellent tip (sorry). :-P Hard-boiled eggs are one of our favorite quick & healthy snacks, especially during a break from cruising down the highway. We also include them in our dinner salads on a regular basis, so we always keep them in the fridge. The only nuisance is how difficult it can sometimes be to remove the shell without removing a lot of the egg too. While boondocking (camping without hook-ups) we of course don't want to be using too much water, so we always hard boil a batch of eggs right before heading out into the wild for a week or two. Since we hard-boil so many eggs, we've been searching for a trick to making them easy to peel. There are almost as many tips about this online as there are "sure-fire" methods for curing hiccoughs... and all of them about as worthwhile. We've read about, and tried, an awful lot of techniques... "Use eggs that are near their expiration date"... "Use really fresh eggs"... "Let the eggs warm to room temperature before putting them in the boiling water"... "Put the eggs into cold water, then heat them to a boil slowly"... "Add vinegar to the water"...and variations on these themes, and others. None of them seem to work consistently. About three months ago, we tried another method on our own that we hadn't read about anywhere, and it's turned out to be the most consistent technique we've ever used for making easy-to-peel hard-boiled eggs. It doesn't matter how old or new the eggs are. Just follow the simple steps in this video and see how you make out. A few notes: First, we always buy extra-large eggs. If you use large eggs instead, our guess is that it might only take 12 minutes instead of 13. Or maybe not... try it out and let us know! Second, try to avoid hard-boiling any egg that has an obvious hairline crack in it, since it will be more likely to break when putting the cold egg into boiling water (you're not trying to make poached eggs here, right?). If you have problems with eggs cracking when putting them into the water, try leaving them on the counter for an hour or two to warm up to room temperature before putting them into the boiling water. And again, we never make hard-boiled eggs while boondocking due to the water it uses (although EATING them while boondocking is the best)! ;-) One last quick trick: the absolute easiest way to peel the eggs is immediately after removing them from the ice. They will still peel nicely a day (or a week) later, but the shells will practically fall off if you peel them right after making them. WONDERING WHAT'S THE BEST GEAR TO USE ON YOUR RV?

How To Plug in an RV (Dog Bones 101)
 
05:05
A new RVer recently asked us how to plug their RV into a regular household electric outlet, so we thought we'd cover the basics of connecting different types of RVs into 20-, 30- and 50-amp electric service. FEATURED & RELATED PRODUCTS AVAILABLE ON AMAZON: RV dogbone power adapters: http://amzn.to/2DY3LPq A standard 3-prong household electric outlet provides 20-amp service (sometimes also referred to as 15-amp service). Most medium-sized RVs (usually with only one air-conditioning unit) have 30-amp service, which uses a larger three-prong plug with two of the prongs at an angle. Larger RVs (usually with two or three air conditioners) utilize higher-power 50-amp service, with larger, 4-prong plugs. Most RV parks offer both 20- and 30-amp service, with many parks also offering 50-amp service as well. But what do you do if you're staying at a park that doesn't offer an outlet to match your plug? The answer: Dogbones. A "dogbone" adapter (named for it's resemblance to the canine treat) attaches to the end of your RV's electric cord, and steps it up or down to match an available outlet. Since 50-amp service is often unavailable at smaller or more rustic RV parks, just about everyone driving a big motorhome (like us) carries at least one dogbone -- to convert their big 50-amp plug into the smaller 30-amp size. We also carry a second dogbone to further step down to 20-amp service. It may not sound possible to power a large motorhome on less than 50-amp service, but it's really not a problem. It's all about power management. We know that we can't run both of our air conditioners and our electric water heater element and our microwave all at the same time unless we're on 50-amp service. But 30 amps is plenty to run 2 or 3 items at once. As a matter of fact, we just spent the entire winter in British Columbia in a 30-amp site without a problem! Even a 20-amp connection is enough for us in certain cases. It will keep the batteries charged, allow us to watch TV, run the fridge, or power our big computer, or even microwave dinner... just as long as we stick pretty much to one of those things at a time. It's all about learning how much power each appliance in your RV uses, and living within the limits of the available electric service. We would certainly never expect to park in a friend's driveway on a hot summer day and power our air conditioners by running an extension cord to a household outlet in their garage. Larger power requirements demand at least 30-amp or even 50-amp service... or firing up the generator. It's a real luxury on a brutally hot August day to pull into a 50-amp RV park, crank up both air conditioners, heat water for showers, and microwaving dinner... all at the same time. Just don't expect to do that without that 50-amp connection!

How To Inflate RV Tires The Easy Way
 
05:24
If you want one of these awesome Viair 400P-RV air compressors for your rig, you can find it here on Amazon: http://amzn.to/2FFRCii We’ve changed the way we add air to our RV's tires. Before, we used our diesel pusher's on-board air compressor, but this new way applies to any type of RV, so this tip isn’t just for owners of large motorhomes. If you've seen our previous videos about adding air to high-pressure RV tires, you know that using the on-board compressor isn't as simple as it sounds. Besides the problem of the pressure cycling up and down below our required tire pressures as part of its normal operation, we also try to avoid idling our engine more than absolutely needed. We hate being an annoying neighbor by polluting a campground with diesel exhaust and noise just because our tires happen to need air. Our new solution makes us a better neighbor. If you've seen very many of our videos, you know that we’re all about finding money-saving ways to solve RV issues, but sometimes a top-of-the-line solution is the best solution, and you get what you pay for. We discovered Viair, a manufacturer of ruggedized portable compressors, designed to handle more demanding situations, like filling large off-road vehicle tires. We like the fact that they make a model specifically designed for RVers, which got stellar reviews on Amazon, so of course that’s the one we ordered.

And of course the last item, the yellow pipe tape, is used throughout.

Winterizing RV Water Lines With an Air Compressor
 
10:14
To keep our pipes from freezing, we winterize the water lines in our RV using compressed air. We'll still need a couple of gallons of RV anti-freeze, specifically designed for potable water systems. We usually snowbird for the winter, but this year we'll be storing our RV for a couple of months in a cold climate while we're traveling by air. The last thing we want to come home to is burst pipes.

Does Your RV Have A Water Heater? WATCH THIS!

HOW TO: Prevent an RV Slide-out Flood
 
02:49
You don't have to be an RVer for very long to come to the same conclusion we did: breaking camp in the rain kinda sucks, especially if you have slide-outs. Pouring rain is just about the last thing you want to see out your windshield on the morning you're planning to leave a campground. If you know beforehand that it's going to be raining, you might be able to close your slides the night before (assuming you still have space to function inside). Sometimes you can arrange to stay an extra day in the hopes of departing in drier weather. Other times your schedule dictates that you just have to deal with it and break camp in the wet. FEATURED & RELATED PRODUCTS AVAILABLE ON AMAZON: California Water Blade: http://amzn.to/2FG4RQ6 Even if you're lucky enough to wake up to sunshine, an overnight wind-driven rain can soak every inch of your RV, including the tops of the slide-outs, underneath the slide toppers. Even though slide-out seals are designed to squeegee water away, some of it can easily get in anyway and end up on your carpet or floor. The trick we use is to jack up the nose or tail of the RV. If you have power jacks, you can raise one end to tilt the water off the slides. If it rained sideways overnight, it's a lot better to dump any water that got underneath the slide toppers outside on the ground, rather than all over your RVs bedroom or living room floor. It can sometimes be quite a lot of water too. When we first started RVing over 10 years ago, we quickly learned to have towels ready when retracting the slides right after heavy a rainstorm. Then we realized that it we dump the water off by jacking up the nose or tail before breakfast, the tops of the slides are usually dry by the time we're ready to retract the slides. If you'd like to take a further step to remove water from the sides of the slide-outs before retracting them, you can use a California Water Blade. Of course we primarily use ours to remove water from the RV to prevent water spotting after washing it. They're made of pure silicone and specifically designed to not scratch delicate paint jobs. They're also available with an adjustable slide-on handle which is designed to attached to any standard threaded pole, like the one you likely use on your wash brush. The slide-out seals will certainly remove the majority of the water without squeegeeing in advance, but if you have the time, and want to keep as much water as possible out of your RV, squeegeeing definitely helps. The next time you break camp during or after a heavy wind-driven rainstorm, you can prevent excess water from getting inside, during that time when part of your RV's exterior transitions to become part of your RV's interior.

RV TRIP TIP: Mt. Rushmore, Custer SP & the Black Hills of SD
 
05:35
While Mount Rushmore is the most well-known attraction in the Black Hills of South Dakota, there are lots of great things to see and do here. We just scratched the surface on this easy, one-day scenic drive. Although Yellowstone National Park is probably the most famous place to see bison (buffalo), Custer State Park has one of the largest publicly-owned herds in the world, roaming freely throughout the park and often stopping traffic along the the road. Connecting Custer State Park and Mount Rushmore National Memorial, the Iron Mountain Road is a work of art in itself. The highway passes through some of the most beautiful scenery in the Black Hills and includes three tunnels that frame Mount Rushmore in the distance. The road is famous for its "Pigtail Bridges" that allow travelers to gain or lose elevation quickly. The Needles Highway is a spectacular drive through pine and spruce forests, meadows surrounded by birch and aspen and rugged granite mountains. Completed in 1922, the road's name comes from the needle-like granite formations you'll see along the way. It also has the longest, and coolest, tunnel! Of course we visit Mount Rushmore National Memorial too, as no trip to the area would be complete without experiencing this amazing site up close. We hike the easy 6/10-mile Presidential Trail for stunning views almost directly beneath the granite faces. This is only the beginning of the spectacular scenery in the Black Hills. For the more adventurous, be sure to visit Wind Cave National Park and Harney Peak if you have more time to spend in this beautiful part of the world. We stayed in one of the many full-hook-up commercial RV parks in the area, but there are lots of State Park and National Forest campgrounds to choose from as well. If you haven't yet visited the Black Hills, maybe this quick snapshot of the area will inspire you to add it to your must-see list. The admission price to the Custer State Park is well worth it!

The Best RV Leveling Blocks (Jack Pads, Stackers)
 
05:57
Whether you call them RV jack pads, stacker blocks or levelers, a well designed set will help level an RV and prevent jacks from sinking into soft ground. Utility Blocks are the best we've ever seen. FEATURED & RELATED PRODUCTS AVAILABLE ON AMAZON: Utility Blocks – Pack of 4: http://amzn.to/2GtsAUQ Utility Blocks – Single: http://amzn.to/2Gu161u LevelMatePRO Bluetooth RV Leveling: http://amzn.to/2GM0WT9 Viair 400P-RV Air Compressor: http://amzn.to/2FFRCii RECENT & RELATED VIDEOS: 21st Century RV Leveling: https://youtu.be/Jh_5Nwu9T8E Every RVer has to deal with unlevel campsites from time to time. Even if your RV is equipped with a leveling system, some sites are so sloped, you just can't get your rig level. This is why RVers carry leveling blocks, also referred to as jack pads, stacker blocks or stabilizer pads. Whatever you call them, they all serve the same purpose: allowing you to level your RV on a sloped campsite. They also help keep jacks from sinking into soft surfaces. Some of the most common stacker blacks are the yellow or red plastic levelers typically found at RV or camping stores. A little Googling will reveal a wide array of other options too. If you have a circular or table saw, you can even home-make your own from blocks of wood. Unfortunately, for us full-timers, who are conscious of space & weight (and of course quality & cost too), nearly all of these options have their drawbacks. Homemade Wood blocks are inexpensive, but they're heavy, and can crack or rot over time. They also require tools and raw materials, plus you also need to be at least a little bit handy. Basic plastic stacker blocks are reasonably priced, lightweight and compact for easy storage, but they have a waffle-like grid bottom which allows them to sink into soft surfaces, and they're not always strong enough to support a heavier RV without cracking, especially on soft or uneven surfaces. The wide assortment of higher-end jack pads we've found mostly suffer from one or more of the following problems: too thin to provide enough height; too flexible, allowing them to deform on uneven surfaces; too large and heavy to be easily stored; too smooth, allowing them to slide on each other when stacked. Worst of all, most of the higher-end jack pads are what we consider to be extremely expensive. After 10 years of full-time RVing, Utility Blocks are perfect for about 98% of the places we camp. They're the perfect balance of size, weight, strength and cost. They're big enough to provide a good surface area, and thick enough to provide good lift, without being too large and heavy. Even though they weight slightly over 3 pound each, they seem indestructible, and the price for what you get is really reasonable compared to anything else we've found.

HOW TO: Lubricate a Blue Ox Tow Bar
 
03:10
Since April 11, 2012 was our 9-year anniversary of full-timing, we though that a video about something really integral to RVing (like towing) was a fitting way to kick off our 10th year on the road. When the arms of your tow bar are feeling kind of "sticky" (requiring a stronger pull to extend or retract them) it means the grease inside the bellows has begun to get old or dry and needs to be replaced. We re-lubricate our tow bar every year as part of our annual spring cleaning and maintenance. It's a quick and easy job that can be accomplished in short order by just about anybody with a couple of basic tools. As you can see in the video, no special skills are required. We bought our Blue Ox tow bar for our first motorhome, but we liked it so much that we kept it when we bought a new RV after 2 years on the road. Blue Ox is one of the most respected names in the RV industry, and we've now had 9 years of trouble-free service from our tow bar. It's incredibly easy to connect and disconnect and requires very little maintenance. Whether you have the Aladdin model like we do, or an Acclaim, Alpha or Aventa model, maintaining them is the same. Simply cut off both zip-ties (the large one on the RV side of the tow bar, and the small one on the car side) with a pair of wire cutters, clean the old grease off the arm with silicone spray, apply fresh all-purpose lithium grease, replace the zip-ties and work the arm in and out a bit to spread the lubricant evenly. Then repeat the same process on the other arm and you're good to go for another year. WONDERING WHAT'S THE BEST GEAR TO USE ON YOUR RV?

HOW TO: Exercise a Motorhome
 
05:53
When parked in one place for a long period of time, it's important to exercise your RV to keep the engine and other equipment in good working order. When we're not on the road, we try to take our rig out at least every month or so. We take the opportunity to check the operation of as many things as possible, as well as filling up with propane and topping up the fuel tank to prevent moisture. Some of the items we cover are specific to diesels, but many things are relevant to all motorhomes, whether diesel or gas.

HOW TO: Test for RV-Safe Toilet Paper
 
01:55
When we started full-timing over 9 years ago, we had never even been in an RV before, and didn't know much about them. When we heard that RVs required special "RV-safe" toilet paper, we didn't know exactly what that meant, but we assumed it must be listed on the package for some important reason. On our very first trip to stock up on RV supplies, we made sure to buy a few packs of this magical stuff. It turns out that buying bathroom tissue manufactured and/or packaged specifically for use in an RV won't do much more than increase costs, and limit your choices to very few products, none of which you might be happy with. At the time, we'd been using Costco's Kirkland brand toilet paper for years. We love Costco, and generally find that anything they sell to be both high quality and competitively priced. Without going into the gory details about what makes toilet paper good or bad, suffice it to say that many of us have a favorite brand. We like Kirkland, and wanted to know if we could safely use it in our rig, instead of the expensive, low-quality "RV-safe" stuff from the camping aisle. The only consideration you need to worry about is whether or not your bathroom tissue will break down in your black tank. If not, too much of it could... gum up the works. Here's a simple test to find out if the brand you prefer using in your stick house can also be used in your RV. This test works with any type or brand, both single-ply and 2-ply, regardless of whether the packaging specifies "RV-safe" or not. WONDERING WHAT'S THE BEST GEAR TO USE ON YOUR RV?

HOW TO: Hang Things on RV Walls using Pop Rivets
 
04:31
We demonstrate how to hang things on the interior walls of an RV. Just about all motorhome, travel trailer and fifth wheel walls are the same thin material that isn't strong enough to hold wood screws. And without access behind the wall panels, there's no way to use bolts, since you can't tighten down the nuts. And velcro only works for really lightweight items. FEATURED & RELATED PRODUCTS AVAILABLE ON AMAZON: Pop Riveter: http://amzn.to/2BCfcu9 Higher-End Pop Riveter: http://amzn.to/2FHXasQ Aluminum Pop Rivet Assortment: http://amzn.to/2DKvDGD Stainless Steel Pop Rivets: http://amzn.to/2GGB3Eh 3M Command hooks are good for items up to a certain weight, but what about when you want to attach something heavy... or permanently? One solution: Pop Rivets. We like them for many installations compared to molly bolts or collapsible wall fasteners because of how small they are. At the beginning of the video, you can see the limited amount of space we had to work with when installing the fire extinguisher mounting bracket. We were able to get several rivets into a very small area, providing enough strength to make sure the mount wouldn't pull off the wall when grabbing the fire extinguisher. Thanks to our good friends Pat & Rita for allowing us to drill holes in the walls of their Winnebago motorhome to demonstrate how to do this. We've also installed things with pop rivets many times in our Newmar Mountain Aire and before that in our Fleetwood Bounder Diesel.

RV Holding Tank Dumping 1-2-3
 
02:33
Dumping your RV's black and gray tanks might seem like a no-brainer, but we can't tell you how many times we've seen people who could use a little help with the basics. Properly dumping your RV's holding tanks requires a few simple procedures to help keep things odor-free and running smoothly. FEATURED & RELATED PRODUCTS AVAILABLE ON AMAZON: Clear Sewer Elbow (45°): http://amzn.to/2DZRwBQ 20' Heavy Duty Sewer Hose: http://amzn.to/2E8BKYO Clear Adapter: http://amzn.to/2s3VTuh 15′ Flush Hose: http://amzn.to/2FJJDB3 Backflow Preventer: http://amzn.to/2Eb8IYh For everyday tank dumping, this video is the "express version" of our original "How To Dump & Clean an RV Black Tank." If your black tank really needs a super cleaning, you can watch the original, more detailed video here: http://youtu.be/I6sv4d3PsTo If you're not having tank odor problems and just want a quick overview of basic tank dumping procedures, this new video gets right to the point. Many RVers seem to think their black tank is clean when they just empty it and flush out the sewer hose with water from the gray tank. Even those RVers who use a black tank flush system often don't utilize the most important piece of equipment necessary for monitoring the cleanliness of the tank: a clear sewer elbow. But using a clear sewer elbow on your camper isn't enough. As we demonstrate, even a black tank flush connection still won't do the job unless used correctly. We'll show you how to be sure your black tank is really empty, keeping it clean & odor-free and making your motorhome, travel trailer or fifth wheel a nicer place to be.

HOW TO: Replace an RV Skylight
 
04:55
If your RV's skylight is cracked or broken, or just old and cloudy, we'll show you how easy it is to replace it with a brand new one. Access to your roof and a few tools are all it takes to get the job done. FEATURED & RELATED PRODUCTS AVAILABLE ON AMAZON: Surebond SB-140 Skylight sealant: http://amzn.to/2nF4Zbq Nitrile Gloves: http://amzn.to/2GI1adY Dewalt Cordless Drill: http://amzn.to/2DIv2Fb April 11th marks exactly a decade of full-time RVing for us! We drove away from our "stick house" for the last time on April 11, 2003 and never looked back. Since just about any type of motorhome, 5th wheel or travel trailer might have a skylight, we're celebrating our anniversary with a video that just about any RVer can use. You'll need a putty knife or two, a can of mineral spirits, a caulk gun loaded with SureBond SB140 butyl sealant, a screw gun, an old rag and a pair of nitrile gloves (mostly to protect your hands from the mineral spirits). Of course you'll need a brand-new replacement skylight too. Also be sure to have some extra self-drilling screws on hand just in case, since there may be more screw holes in the new skylight than in the old one. After using your putty knife to scrape away enough sealant to expose the screw heads, remove them all with your screw gun (you could do this by hand, but there are an awful lots of screws to remove and re-install). Then use your putty knife to cut the sealant holding the old skylight onto the roof. If you have a rubber roof (or "EPDM"), be extra careful not to accidentally cut it. Once you've broken the old sealant all the way around the perimeter, the old skylight will lift right off. Then use your putty knife again to scrape up any excess sealant. Now use the mineral spirits on your old rag to clean off the remaining sealant. If you have a "catwalk" roughened roof surface like we do in some areas, you probably won't be able to get all the old sealant off. As long as you remove the excess, don't worry about getting it all. Also be sure to be very sparing with minerals spirits if you have a rubber roof, being careful not to soak the material. Now apply a nice thick bead of SureBond SB-140 on top of the old screw holes all the way around, and place your new skylight down, wiggling it slightly to spread the new sealant into place. Install all of the screws, keeping in mind that it is unlikely that many (or any) of them will go back into the original holes. No worries... the old holes will be sealed and the self-drilling screws will make new ones. To avoid cracking the plastic, don't over-tighten them. The final step is a nice bead of sealant around the perimeter and over the screw heads, and voila: you have a brand new crystal clear skylight. To remove the inside liner of your skylight, follow the steps in our video here: http://youtu.be/ehcjYNsFsOo The piano music is my own performance of Scott Joplin's Maple Leaf Rag from 1899.

How To Sanitize an RV Water System
 
08:27
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 trick we use: https://youtu.be/lEBscJ-qb98 Want to sanitize the cold water side only? Here's how: https://youtu.be/kOlPwmwlaMo FEATURED & RELATED PRODUCTS AVAILABLE ON AMAZON: 20' Slunky Sewer Hose Support: http://amzn.to/2DVAC7l We've been drinking the water from our RV's fresh water tank for over a decade without a problem. It's perfectly safe to do, as long as you sanitize your fresh water system periodically. We do ours about twice a year (keep in mind that we're full-timers... those who store their RV all winter should be fine sanitizing once a year, in the spring). Clean, safe, sanitary drinking water is a breeze when you take a few basic steps to manage the fresh water system on your motorhome, travel trailer of fifth wheel. Fresh, drinkable, potable H2O doesn't only come from bottled water, but right from your RV's tank, saving money and plastic in the process. We'll show you how to use bleach to kill any bacteria that may be present in your camper's water system, and have all the safe drinking water you need. If you saw the first video we made on this topic over two years ago, we only sanitized the cold water lines. That's because the primary purpose of sanitizing is to make the water safe to drink. Since a lot of people asked about sanitizing the hot side of the system as well, we're going to do both hot and cold sides today. You can see the original video here: http://youtu.be/kOlPwmwlaMo If at all possible, the deal time to do this is on a day when you're planning to take a long drive, preferably down some pretty twisty roads. This will agitate the water in the tank, helping to clean it as you drive, and make sure the top of the tank gets splashed too. Since we'll be doing some tank flushing as part of the process, your trip should ideally take you from one full hook-up RV park to another one, neither of which should have drought or water use restrictions. It's particularly important to end your drive at an RV park with water hook-ups, since you'll be arriving with a tank full of bleachy water. The only supplies we'll need for this job are some bleach, a 1-gallon pitcher and an old measuring cup. The piano music is my own performance of Scott Joplin's Maple Leaf Rag from 1899.

Super Clean Your Windshield... Super Fast!
 
02:46
If you saw our original video about super cleaning your windshield, here's a way to do it super fast, even with a really big windshield like the one on our RV. Regardless of what type of vehicle you drive.... motorhome, pick-up truck or car, this tip will quickly make your windshield cleaner and clearer. We're not paid to promote Invisible Glass, but we LOVE it. We've been using it for years, and it's better than any other glass cleaner on the market. The Rain Repellent version is like adding in Rain-X, but without all the rubbing! Just spray on and wipe off for the same clarity and beading action. To find Invisible Glass with Rain Repellent by Stoner Inc. online, click the following link: FEATURED & RELATED PRODUCTS AVAILABLE ON AMAZON: Invisible Glass with Rain Repellent: http://amzn.to/2EexCXa Super Fine “0000” Steel Wool: http://amzn.to/2DYPgur From a distance our big, tall windshield might look clean, but when you take a closer look, you'll see that getting all of the bugs off can be difficult, especially at the top of a large, hard-to-reach windshield. This is where our 0000 steel wool comes in. That's the extra-fine variety with the four zeros on the package, commonly used to refinish fine furniture. After our first video about using steel wool on the windshield, we got lots of questions about the potential for scratching the glass. Glass is harder than steel wool and won't scratch, but if it will make you more comfortable, try it in a discreet corner first. ;-) You'll simply be polishing the glass with the steel wool, to remove any bugs, road tar and tree sap. Then it's time to apply one of our favorite products: Invisible Glass with Rain Repellent. It goes on like any ordinary window cleaner, but it makes water bead right off by sealing the pores in the glass. When driving down the highway, you can see right through the beads of water as they whisk off the windshield. Sometimes wipers aren't needed at all, even in pouring rain. Simply spray it on and wipe it off with paper towels, newspaper or a clean rag... whichever you prefer. It's best to do this in the shade, but I shot this in bright sunshine for better video quality. If you apply Invisible Glass to a hot windshield in direct sunshine like I did here, you might get a few streaks, because it evaporates so quickly in the heat. Just buff with a soft cloth for a crystal clear shine. Thoroughly cleaning and treating your windshield increases the clarity of the glass and helps water bead off when driving in the rain or snow. This increases visibility, making all of your vehicles safer on the road. The piano music is my own performance of Scott Joplin's Maple Leaf Rag from 1899.

Tiffin Motorhome Factory Tour
 
05:57
We take you on a video tour of the Tiffin Motorhome Factory in Red Bay, Alabama. 2013 marks Tiffin's 40th year, so what a great time to visit. We've taken an awful lot of factory tours at various RV manufacturers: Monaco, Entegra, Winnebago, Newmar (of course... twice!), Travel Supreme, Rexhall, Country Coach and even high-end Prevost bus converter Marathon Coach (twice again). But we don't get down South all that often, so we hadn't made it to Tiffin before, even though they are high on our radar should we ever be in the market for a new RV. We love our Newmar and have no plans to trade it in, but we know that unexpected life-changing experiences can sometimes lead down new paths. Winning the lottery for instance... or (on the darker side) losing the RV to fire, theft or other malady. Besides having a keen interest in RVs in general, we like to know as much as we can about different manufacturers and their construction techniques in case should we ever be in the market. There's no better way to see way down under the hood of a particular brand than seeing them created from the ground up. Although it seems every RV manufacturer offers factory tours, we have to say that we were surprised by the level of access we were given at Tiffin. We were allowed right up alongside most of the workers as they built these beautiful motorhomes. And at the paint facility, about 5 miles away from the main factory, the only tours are self-guided. We were literally given ear plugs, safety glasses and a map and given the run of the place! During the final check and assembly phase of the construction, we were actually encouraged to hop on any coach on the line while it was being finished, and asked workers questions about the RVs! We were impressed with an awful lot about Tiffin, and will definitely keep it on our short list should the time come to replace our Mountain Aire. The extreme access all tour guests are given, along with the OK to photograph all we wanted, allowed us to make a pretty good video record of the manufacturing process to share here. Enjoy!

HOW TO: Install an RV Roof Vent Cover
 
02:02
Both of our Fantastic vent fans are equipped with rain sensors, but there are lots of times that we want the fan open and running even if it's raining out. The solution is to install vent fan covers. Our favorite is the Camco Aero-Flo (no, they did not pay us to promote it!), which has lots of venting for high air flow, plus allows easy swing-open access for cleaning. FEATURED & RELATED PRODUCTS AVAILABLE ON AMAZON: Camco Aero-Flo Vent Cover: http://amzn.to/2FHOjr2 We installed vent covers on both kitchen and bathroom fans when we purchased our motorhome 7 years ago. Recently, one of the covers got cracked, so we're replacing it with a new one. Even though the brackets for the new cover are already installed (since we're re-using the old brackets), we're taking advantage of the swap-out to show how easy it is to do it yourself. Along with improving the flow of fresh air, reduced need for air conditioning and effective moisture removal are two great benefits of having Fantastic fans in an RV. Covering them makes them that much more versatile. If you install covers on your fans, you'll be grateful for the ability to use them in all weather conditions, especially when it's both hot and raining at the same time.

Stop RV Tank Odor With RV 360 Siphon Vents
 
08:10
We're pretty meticulous about maintaining our black and gray tanks and never really noticed much of an odor problem. The only time it was an issue was while traveling down the highway with a mostly full gray tank with the driver's window open. That seems to create a vortex that pulls gray tank odors into the RV. FEATURED & RELATED PRODUCTS AVAILABLE ON AMAZON: 360 Siphon vents – White: http://amzn.to/2DYOeyO 360 Siphon vents – Black: http://amzn.to/2EfMowY Dicor Self-Leveling Lap Sealant – White: http://amzn.to/2EgogKF If you don't think that gray water can smell almost as bad as black water, you probably haven't done much serious boondocking. Using such a small amount of water results in a high concentration of soap, food particles and body oils, creating a pretty bad odor. Let's face it... both RV waste holding tanks can stink sometimes. The trick is keeping that smell out of the RV's interior. After a recent trip with mostly-full gray and black tanks, we decided to try out a solution we'd read about many times in Chuck Woodbury's RVtravel newsletters. The results are in, and we can't believe the difference. We didn't think we had much of a problem, but now we're wondering if we've been like those cat owners who don't seem to know that their house smells like a litter box. Hope not! So we're excited to announce our newest RVgeeks Contest! On Monday, May 26, 2014 at 7pm Pacific Time, five lucky RVgeeks viewers will each win two 360 Siphon Roof Vents with a total retail value of about $300!

RV Tire Age, Care & Replacement
 
08:58
Do RV tires really have to be replaced every 5, 6 or 7 years? How can you tell how old your tires are? How can you make them last as long as possible? Here's how to get the most life and use out of your RV tires. Unlike car tires, which are usually replaced because the treads are worn out, RVs are often driven far fewer miles each year. Most RV tires have to be replaced due to age long before the tread is worn out and our tires are no exception. Even though there’s plenty of tread left, it’s almost time for new rubber. We’ll be replacing our original tires soon, because this spring, our motorhome will be 10 years old. Now before you start e-mailing to tell us that RV tires can’t be used for more than 5 or 6 or 7 years, watch this entire video. We’ll show you how we've safely driven on the same tires for nearly a decade.

Also, towables, especially multi axle rigs, have slightly different guidelines, as being towed places different stresses on the tires. Large 5th wheels may need to replace tires as early as 3 to 5 years. Check with your manufacturer to be sure. The piano music is my own performance of Scott Joplin's Maple Leaf Rag from 1899.

RV TRIP TIP: Glacier National Park - Going to the Sun Road
 
04:54
One of our favorite RVing destinations in the U.S. is Glacier National Park, where you'll find one of the most spectacular scenic drives in the world: Going to the Sun Road. The road itself is an engineering marvel, but the views are absolutely incredible. If you're afraid of heights, best to sit on the side of the car away from the edge. And don't even think about driving your RV up here. Leave it in one of the campgrounds! We include a look at one of our favorite campgrounds in the park: Apgar, at the west entrance of Going to the Sun Road. We also take one of the greatest easy day hikes in the park, starting at Logan Pass and ending at iconic Hidden Lake and Bearhat Mountain. Even though we took the hike in early July, almost the entire trail was completely snow-covered! As with every other time we've hiked to Hidden Lake, we saw mountain goats along the trail. We actually spotted a total of 7 of them that day! If you haven't yet visited Glacier National Park, hopefully this quick overview of one of the most beautiful parts of the park will encourage you to add it to your bucket list.
