Trying to actually get the motorhomes.

Stuck a note to the wiper. Hopefully the owner comes back soon, since the property is pretty much abandoned now.

Time to Say Good-Bye to RVing

Posted 07-27-2018 at 08:22 AM by RoVingwriter

All good things must come to an end.

Jim and I have enjoyed RVing since 2010, when we bought our first motorhome, a 38-foot, 1998 Newmar Dutch Star. Its successor was newer (a 2007 Country Coach), larger (40 feet), and more comfortable (three slides), but when it began to feel its old age, we decided to trade it in and at the same time, trade down to a smaller sized RV—a 2016 Thor Axis 25.2.

Start of a new adventure

Posted 07-05-2018 at 04:10 PM by miwok

The first purchase of a motorhome, indeed, a camper since I lived in one for a couple years when I was 15.

It is a Pace Arrow (by Fleetwood) 1993 Cummins/Allison 6 spd on an Oshkosh chassis. Owned by a construction Company founder, and garaged and maintained for him by the family.

There is so much on this coach, and I am starting my journey to get it serviced and running, since most of the last four years it was in the garage. It runs well, and most lights and things work,...

Storm motorhome high beam

Posted 07-03-2018 at 07:21 PM by K Schmidt

Thanks everyone on the Storm motorhome high beam problem. What ended up needing to be done was the signal lever, it had to be pulled up. The lights are controlled on the dash for the dimmer and lights but the high and low beams are on the signal lever. Keith

Great RV Repair Near San Antonio

Posted 05-10-2018 at 02:09 PM by Rugratt1942

Country RV has parts, sales and a great repair shop. Our slide out safety cable broke. Allen said to bring it in that day. We stayed on the property with 50 amp & water. They diagnosed the next morning and worked with our extended warranty and the parts were shipped overnight and expertly installed the next day. Several other rv repair places couldn't touch it for 10 days to a month. If you're having rv issues anywhere near San Antonio go to Country RV in Seguin, Texas. Thanks for superb...

How to Make an Air Dam for a Solar Panel

Posted 02-19-2018 at 09:30 AM by CountryFit
Updated 04-30-2018 at 09:33 AM by CountryFit

on my coach, i have installed 11 large solar panels. the front one is 61.5" wide cross the coach side to side. when coach is moving, especially when head wind is strong, say at 40 mph, and i am driving at 60 mph, that is a combination of 100 mph wind to hit the panel. two months ago when i did the panel upgrade, I did notice that 2 of the 4 front bracket anchor screws backed out about a quarter turn pushing up the dicor. i re-tightened them and re-dicored. i thought it's necessary to protect...

Good Business

Posted 02-12-2018 at 08:55 AM by Gloria

As our RV aged and so did we, it got harder to hear each other as we traveled down the road. On this day’s end when we pulled in the engine was very loud. Roger decided it was the manifold. It was 4 o’clock on a Friday and we need a mechanic to access the problem. We found Sauder’s here in Sydney, Nebraska. Chris Sauder, the owner’s son, came out and told us it was a blow gasket on the passenger side. He could not get us in until Tuesday and then parts would need to be ordered. Roger needed to get...
