When plugging your RV house battery into shore power, you may wonder whether you need to disconnect the battery. Might leaving the battery connected lead
If you think of aerodynamic vehicles the first thing that probably comes to mind are sports cars, race cars and maybe even military jets. It’s not likely that an RV will be included in your list…until today!
Most RV dealers will tell you it’s normal for RV rubber roofs to form bubbles under the rubber. But during my research I found that if the rubber roof is installed correctly, bubbles will not form. I guess that means, according to RV dealers, it is normal for rubber roofs to be installed improperly?
The ONLY type of RV you can do anything in while driving is a motorhome (Class A, B and C) where the driver’s cab is connected to the rest of the RV interior AND there are seat belts in some of the seats. And while driving, you are only allowed to sit in the seats that have seatbelts. It is not legal for anyone to be inside of any type of pull behind RV while it is being towed, that includes trailers, 5th wheels, campers, camper trailers, tent trailers and others.
If you have a motorhome and you’re allowed in the RV while driving, you might be wondering what you’re allowed to do. You have options!
I’m glad you asked because RV interiors can be pretty bland. Even if you have a high-end RV then the finishing will be really nice, but still bland. What makes an RV feel more like home is putting your memories on display. The good news is, there are lots of ways to hang things on RV walls to make it “homey”.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This is true for many things including your RV’s plumbing. If you use antifreeze to winterize your RV, then you’ll be avoiding the possibility of serious plumbing damage. If you live in a place where winter temperatures fall below 32 F or 0 C and stay there for multiple days, then you need antifreeze in your RV.
In this post, I’m listing my top 12 picks. You might think that’s a lot. But can you imagine how many patio mats you can choose from just on Amazon alone?
Believe it or not, the first time we tried looking for one, I was tempted to just randomly pick the first one that caught my attention. It took me so much time because everything just looks so good that they almost look the same to me.
I mean ladies would perhaps pay more attention to a patio mat more than men do, right? Right. But my wife came back to me and said I should be paying more attention to it as I would in purchasing every other RV accessory. After all, getting an RV was my idea in the first place.
I must admit, what she said got me good. So as detail-oriented as I was with all the other purchases we made, I had to take more time in looking into these RV patio mat details. And these are the results.
I’m not going to lie. Back in the day, I take my RV roof for granted all the time. I would religiously clean the sides, tires, windshield, windows, and my RV’s interior but I used to rarely clean the roof.
I mean, it’s not something people normally look at. Besides, there are more important things to be worried about such as the brakes and the tires, right?
I can imagine most of you answering a silent yes. But if I’m being honest, I know that neglecting the roof is just like neglecting the entire exterior of my RV. The only difference is that it’s not the part that is most visible so we ignore it.

Washing and waxing is preventive maintenance that you should perform on your RV at least once every 6 months. Some say any time you come home from an RV trip it’s a good time to wash and wax your RV, too. But we have three young kids and nobody has time for that much cleaning.
Either way, I’ve reviewed the top 12 RV wash and wax products on this post.
One of the things I love most about my RV is having water everywhere we go. I find it really convenient most especially because I always travel with the kids. We don’t always have to rely on campgrounds to hookup for fresh water. It’s very helpful how we can be off the grid for days and have everything we basically need.
Before one decides to embrace the RV life, one of the most important questions that should be addressed is fuel efficiency. Any cost is important, and in this case, fuel consumption can seriously affect your budget if not thought out thoroughly.
