For RV rentals that allow towing, research the two peer to peer sites mentioned by Ostrich, and also RVezy and RVnGo. They let you tow. Word of caution; they all make money from selling insurance; as high as $55/day. If your auto policy covers towing a rental, ask the RV owner if they will take accept your insurance rider. Do this before you book. If your policy doesn’t offer coverage for a rental, or RV owner won’t accept, you’re going to pay the platform for […]

Screenshot: Army of the Dead/Netflix After a rather limp April slate , Netflix is springing into summer blockbuster season in May, packing its release schedule full of original films, high-profile pandemic acquisitions, and long-awaited new seasons of a few of its most popular series (or at least a few with vocal online fanbases—we see you, Castlevania stans). Will it be enough to help the streamer recover some of its eroding market share ? Only time will tell. (But probably not.) Most of the attention—at least […]

Somehow, in 2021, when everything is “wireless” this and “bluetooth” that and “AirPlay” that and “Alexa” this, there are still wires hanging out of everything. Your desk, media console, nightstand—and, in the work from home era, probably your dining table, too—are laden with so many wires and tripping hazards, you might as well be traversing a complicated root system in the rainforest. Luckily, there are systems and methods to deal with all the wires, cords, and plugs hanging around your outlets. Let’s start small: Get […]

Photo: Stanislaw Mikulski (Shutterstock) Cultural diversity is an important concept that shapes us as individuals and as a society. Grasping its importance at an early age means understanding and appreciating that people are different, and that that’s what makes the world more interesting. In particular, teaching kids early on about different foods, eating habits, and mealtime traditions can help them understand, appreciate, and embrace people from different backgrounds later in life. The “lunchbox moment” has become the subject of countless personal essays, as many immigrant […]

Bone-In, Skin-On Thighs Are the Easiest Chicken for Beginners

Photo: zi3000 (Shutterstock) For reasons I cannot fathom (‘80s and ‘90s diet culture), many people my age started their chicken-cooking journey with boneless, skinless breasts. In their defense, breasts do look simple, almost sterile—it’s a piece of pure meat without bones or fat to “deal with.” But bones and fat are what make meat taste good, and removing them greatly increases a novice cook’s margin for error. You might think whole, roasted chickens are a good poultry launching pad, and they certainly are a big […]

As researchers found , it’s pathetically easy to hammer through a big list of of email address and link them to real Facebook accounts. The scope of the tool is pretty significant—up to five million email addresses per day when it’s really cruising along—and it can […]

Language experts generally agree that the first six years of a child’s life are the most formative for learning language. We speak and little ears listen, acquiring meaning, coming to comprehend syntax, sensing nuance. Teaching your child a new language early on is a life-long gift that may take them to unexpected and wonderful places. For instance, thanks to her parents’ diligent efforts, Geneva Long has always been fluent in Citroën 2CV. And not just 2CV, but all dialects of the Citroën family of romance […]

I’ve had a lot of questions from RV Travel and RVelectricity readers about feeling a shock from your RV when plugged into shore power at your home or a campground pedestal. So I’ve been writing about it and discussing how to test for RV hot-skin. I’ve just received a new Non-Contact Voltage Tester (NCVT) from Southwire. It has both a 100 to 1,000 volt AC testing range, and a 12 to 1,000 volt range for low-voltage circuits. I thought this NCVT would be great for […]

Sizing a weight distribution hitch: rounding up or down?

By |2021-04-16T16:55:22-05:00April 16th, 2021|Boating Activities|

I’m rethinking the weight-distributing hitch for my travel trailer. Trailer’s dry weight is 3600#, loaded it’s probably around 4000-4200#. (Gross weight rating is 4500#). When I got it originally I set it up with a 6000# Equal-i-zer WD hitch but now I’m wondering if I should go down to the 4000# model. I do a lot of boondocking / dirt road travel and I feel that the hitch is unnecessarily stiff. I’m willing to give up some sway control on the freeway to get a better ride off-road. Obviously I […]

When Brian and Jasmine Jones spent a “stay-and-play” weekend at the planned community of Wickenburg Ranch, a Trilogy Resort Community in Wickenburg, Ariz., they knew immediately that they had found their future retirement home. In that pre-pandemic time, the couple was assigned an “ambassador” to show them around, introduce them to people and answer questions. Brian was hooked from the moment he played the “Big Wick” golf course. “When Jasmine suggested looking at Wickenburg Ranch, I questioned why we would look way out there, practically […]

safety chains chopper view By Russ and Tiña De Maris We’ve repeatedly harped on the importance of having, inspecting, and safely using trailer safety chains. If something were to uncouple your tow vehicle from your trailer, safety chains can prevent the trailer from going its own way with disastrous results. But a couple in Idaho inadvertently learned that safety chains can act in reverse. For them, safety chains saved the day, keeping them from almost certain death. Anything but an ordinary trip Last Monday, Nicki […]
