Channel 13 is used by many of the organized RV caravans on the road to keep in touch and get directions. Over the years we've been on 4 caravans and they all used channel 13.

We have "CB-13" on our back window as well in case a helpful trucker may see a problem with our rig. They are not all foul-mouthed bad guys. Many have RV's and are both inquisitive and friendly when we chat with them in the rest stops. They also appreciate it when RVers flash their headlights to tell them it's safe to cut back in ahead of them after passing. For traffic slow-downs we also click up to Channel 19 for the scoop.

When traveling with our friends we always use channel 13. We have found it to be a pretty quiet channel. We will be looking forward to hearing from fellow RVers. I agree with staying away from ch 19 but sometimes in traffic situations have found it useful.

I'll be sure to tell hubby that CB13 is what the RV crowd is using. Me, if I am driving, will be too freaked out to listen until I eventually get the hang of it.

And next thing is to get a good photo of some part of our rig to use on here as my Avatar. Hubby didn't like any of the photos I tried to use. So either some part of the Behemoth or some part of the Mini-B will be my avatar once I get it.

I see some of you saying WHY. I can tell you why. I am a professional truck driver (35 yrs) and a Motorhome owner. I have seen motor homes driving down the road and forgot to put down TV antennas, side doors open. Things dragging down the road. I even seen a canopy loose in the wind. I call on ch.13 no answer or 19. I rarely am on ch 19 myself, to much garbage, my company runs ch 14 most of the time. I did see the TV antenna get ripped off the motor home. OOP'S I am sorry but I don't know your cell phone number. LOL

I was asked by a friend way I didn't have a CB in my tow truck so we could keep in touch while traveling and I have been thinking about getting one. I will be adding a CB to my truck soon and will monitor channel 13.

I'll try it.

When I had my 5er, I drove ~275 miles with my batwing up. A nice woman yelled at me at a stop sign.
