One of the surprises you don't want to get out on the road is to realize that there are items on your RV or trailer that are lower than your bumper...such as the valves on your dump.  When backing up your vehicle be sure to watch for railroad ties or other blocks that are often designed to set off an RV site. It's very easy to hit one of your dump valves and just the slightest bend in that valve can render them unusable.  Look below...
Bringing out the RV after having stored it for awhile can bring you some unwelcome surprises particuarly inside the refrigerator.  Nasty, mold and mildew.  One of our neighbors here at Pismo Coast Village gave us a great tip. Before you shut the fridge door for awhile, prepare a solution, that is one part bleach and one part water.  Then, wipe down every inch of the refrigerator with the solution.  Once done and dry go back i...
Today's RV Tip comes from one of our neighbors here at Pismo Coast Village who showed us some damage to his travel trailer that she attributed to a power washer that got a bit too "powerful." Decals on travel trailers are easily damaged by too much pressure, but even worse is the seams on the trailer.  Our neighbor showed me a seam seal that had been compromised, which resulted in a leak, which she said had happened because of the power was...
With 400 sites and families gathering....At times here at Pismo Coast Village there can be close to a thousand people staying here...With all those people, what is amazing is how quiet it is..particularly in the evening...There is a written and unwritten RV law that it's quiet time after 10pm and it stays that way to at least 7 or 8 in the morning.  The only sound you generally hear after 10pm at Pismo Coast Village is the dominant sound of...
You know those great glass mugs you love to drink your root beer floats from at home?  Well, we have found they aren't such a good idea on the road.  When deciding what is going into your travel trailer or other RV out on the road, we have discovered "think light and think plastic." Not only will they break when flying out of the cabinet, but, even worse than that, they'll break other stuff.  We are in the process of repairing the...
Here's a news flash.  Your RV is a lot taller than your car.  Dean from Australia is at Pismo Coast Village for a few days with his family.  He rented an RV and is fairly new at RVing..he's got a pretty good sized rental and is touring the U.S.  Right before he left, the renter noted they had just put a new awning on the vehicle because the last renter had destroyed it.  So, Dean reminded himself to be careful about that...
Crank Up That Antenna!

RV'ers like to watch TV while they are on their road in their beautiful rigs.  It's rare when you don't stay in an RV park that doesn't have cable TV..but generally, it's fairly limited as compared to your Direct TV or Dish Network.  Of course, there's always the chance you are under a tree with that slick RV dish on the top of your rig.  We've seen more than one big rig extend one of those spare little cheap...
Our next door neighbor Greg, here at Pismo Coast Village brings you today's RV Tip...Greg recently arrived from Fresno and wasn't use to backing up his trailer and had some difficulties with it.  One of the key things he forgot was to unplug the electrical plug for lights between his pickup and his trailer.  In backing up sharp he snapped the wire and had to get a new one.  Problem is, when you get to a new site, your more concern...
Sally from Pismo Coast Maintainence gives us the RV Tip of the Day...It has to do with those propane tanks on your RV.  The tanks have a float in them, and particuarly on the older tanks, the floats get stuck, which doesn't allow for propane to flow in or out of the tank.  Sally said the answer is just to drop the tank on the ground or concrete...it doesn't take much, but it frees up the float and lets the propane flow...And, it's safe...

You know how it goes, sometimes you just gotta have some pizza.  Nothing else will do, no matter how hard you try to distract yourself.  And it's only worse when someone else in the car has the same mindset.   Rose and I were both struck in such a way after a quick Wal-Mart run.   I remembered seeing a small pizza place near the sushi place Ham and I visited several weeks ago so we thought we'd give it a try.

We wa...
