I couldn't see it on the monitor because of deep shadows. That's what I use it for, not listening to cursing or flirting truck drivers or gossiping with others that travel in RVs.
If you're not IN you're OUT.

The OP didn't say that monitoring or talking on CB channel 13 is mandatory, just that it is a good idea.
Since you don't agree why don't you simply not use your CB?
I doubt that anyone will miss you.....(I know I won't)!

Do people still use "handles"? And, would a 23 channel from the 70's still be ok? I think it still lights up, I haven't tried it in probably 30 years.
Could someone come up with some sort of sticker or decal with the irv2 "logo" on it so we'd sort of know if we see each other?

I'm in. Can't say I will always answer if some calls. We're new to our class A and the way it wanders. Most the time I have two hands on the steering wheel with white knuckles. I'm working on the wandering problem (thanks to the great help from this forum) and I expect to do better as I get more experience driving.

I will monitor 13 when on the road. I bet my buddy John will also. I can't convince him to join this group but I are trying. It is neat to be able to plan ahead for something if it requires planning ahead.

I always wave at fellow RVrs but seldom get a return wave. If I post a card picture online will people be willing to print it off for their RV windows?

I have not one but THREE CBs in the motor home cockpit.

Cobra (top of the line or close to it) on 19
Radio Shack (Vintage, and a fairly good one) 13
Midland hand held (Off, no batteries installed)

So when I was S/B I benefited from the chatter on 19 telling truckers of two fatal accidents closing the road just past what for me was the next exit. Rather nice.
Home is where I park it!
