Is this stuff available at most RV sales shops?

What's the mix?

You are kidding right?

Do not permit yourself to be distracted when preparing to get underway or when setting up in a camp site. Often neighbors will stop by to greet me. I stop what I am doing and say "love to chat with you as soon as we get this task completed." Well I am not always that formal, but I really don't want to pull away with my hose or electric still connected, did that once! Nor do I want to disconnect the car before setting the brake and putting it in gear, did that twice!

Post checklists where you can refer to them without getting out a file. We have ours taped to the inside of a cupboard door near the entrance. Flip open the door to see three different checklists, arrival, departure, day trip in the tow'd.

Those that think they know it all, really annoy those of us that actually do.

At the top of the rear ladder attach wire ties(zip) to the horizontal part about 3-4 inches apart to keep the birds from doing their business down the back of the MH.

When I fill up with diesel, I lean the coach to the passenger side and fill from the driver side. This keeps the fuel from burping when filled and running down the side. Also puts it to "Full". When finished I push the "travel" button on the controll and after I pay I'm aired up and ready to ride.

BUKI is not kidding. there are a lot of people who do that. I know. I work on the interstate and have to step around interesting things. If you see a white plastic bag on the interstate shoulder that is not blowing away in the wind............. stay clear. If you see a full plastic bottle ........... that ain't cider. What a fit. Some people should be on another planet. IMO

Do not drive on the shoulder of the Interstate if at all possible. Nails, screws, pieces of metal get blown over there. Great way to get a flat.

I buy fuel additive in a gallon jug. I have collected long neck plastic resealable beer bottles and refill with the fuel additive, it is much easier to pour into the fill hole, and it blows the truckers crazy at the fuel islands!

While in Texas for the winter a neighbor brought over a 120V fan from a failed electric space heater and asked if I wanted it. I said OK and later came up with the idea of putting an electrical cord (plus switch) on it, suspending it vertically above our space heater. It blows the stratified warm air toward the rear of the coach while helping keeping temps even from ceiling to floor. The fan is small and quite quiet. DW and I were much more comfortable after installing the fan.

!. NEVER leave toilet with seat up. You will drop things and in close confines of typical bathroom odds are good you will hit the toilet.
2. Once primary driver situated and in driving position have someone mark outside edge of street side tires with string pulled out in front of coach. Then driver can look thru windshield at string and without moving and have helper mark spot on bottom of windshield in drivers line-of-sight to string. Once spot identified - put some kind of removable mark on glass for later adjustemnt if needed. Now driver has visual reference as to where coach is in traffic lane, how close wheels are to curb etc. Think gun sight.
3. Backing into site - Lay hose on ground about where you want tires to go (inside of curve) now simply backin watching hose in mirror.
