In this RV video hosts Mark & Dawn Polk with RV Education 101 demonstrate how to clean, inspect and maintain the roof of your RV. Happy Camping, Mark […]

Photo: OpturaDesign (Shutterstock) Venmo is convenient, but the app comes with privacy risks if not properly set up. Not only does Venmo automatically link to your Facebook and phone contacts, it also lets users make publicly viewable transactions. This activity even shows up on a global Venmo feed accessible from the main app screen. Why Venmo thinks we need to see a chronological feed of random strangers sending money to each other is beyond me, but the bigger issue is that anyone can search for […]

When Peggy Farrell’s electric stove broke last summer, and its gas replacement wasn’t going to be ready for nine weeks, she first tried to cobble together no-cook meals for her family. But then she remembered her cast iron Dutch oven . Soon she was cooking up all kinds of meals outside, including her Dutch oven specialty: breads. “Then my family got excited about it,” Farrell said, adding that she, too, was excited to use the Dutch oven to cook for her family, since she normally […]

Photo: Claire Lower One of the perks of living alone is the freedom to interpret the phrase “proper meal” however the heck you want. Even if your cohabiter’s diet preferences are in line with yours, their presence can repress your more feral tendencies, like making a bowl of ganache in the microwave and eating it with a spoon (just as an example). I call this dish “I Live Alone” ganache, and it’s a very freeing dessert. It’s easy to make and, due to an aggressive […]

How to Actually Save Money Comparing Toilet Paper Prices

Photo: The Faces (Shutterstock) Shopping for toilet paper should not be as complicated or expensive as it is. Brands love to splash their packaging with claims that one of their “ mega rolls ” is equal to 12 or 18 “regular rolls,” but are less forthright about how much actual paper they are giving you. This makes it almost impossible to compare prices from brand to brand—or even within one brand’s offerings. Of course, that’s kind of the point. If you’re faced with dozens of […]

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 […]

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 […]

Anything but an ordinary trip Last Monday, Nicki […]
