Motorhome OR Towable ... Which is Right for You?

Posted 05-22-2015 at 05:00 AM by DIYRVGuy

I hear this question often, and the answers vary…

“Motorhome or Towable … Which is best for me?”

The simple answer is “It Depends…”

But…that’s probably not what you want to hear.

Honestly it depends on how you answer this 1 simple question…

“What’s your intentions?”

Do you intent to ‘camp’ or ‘travel’?

There’s a difference…

If life is busy and weekends are your primary escape.

DPO Tip: Hidden Engine Danger #1

Posted 05-21-2015 at 09:59 AM by DIYRVGuy
Updated 05-21-2015 at 09:59 AM by DIYRVGuy

Danger, Will Robinson! Danger, Will Robinson!

Whoa! That brings back memories…

Memories of carefree days and afternoons in front of the tube.

If your not familiar with the phrase “Danger, Will Robinson” or have no idea what the “tube” is or was, then Google It!

What’s this got to do with Engine’s and what’s a DPO?

DPO is short for Diesel Pusher Owner, I’m an ex-IT guy and seems like everything in the IT world has an acronym.

The 3 Questions Sellers Dread

Buyers rejoice and sellers beware…

If you’re searching for your first RV prepare to be shocked!

Sellers won’t tell you what you don’t ask!

That’s right, if you don’t ask, the right questions, your chances of getting the whole truth and nothing but the truth are slim to none (and slim just left…).

I’ve worn both pairs of shoes, buyer and seller, several times and to many times if you ask my wife.

And this may be the most valuable

The 3 Secret Benefits of Running Your Generator While You Nap

Posted 04-23-2015 at 07:03 AM by DIYRVGuy

If you’re running your generator mornings and evenings you’re missing out.

Running the generator mid day to recharge batteries may defy conventional wisdom, habits AND help you look like a genius.

If you enjoy napping, and who doesn’t, these benefits are the simple, logical and refreshing.

Your campground neighbors will be curious, envious and wonder why they hadn’t thought of it!

Enjoy Long HOT Showers in your RV

If you’re running out of hot water when showering in your RV you’re torturing yourself needlessly.

If you’re serious about comfortable RV travel the solution is simple.

I’m talking about tuning you’re existing solution to deliver consistent hot water performance.

In all the years I’ve showered inside the RV there is only 1 time the hot water ran out.

Yes, I enjoy long hot showers.

A 15 minute long steam filled hot shower.

This ain’t Kansas, Toto…

Lights not lighting?

Water pressure a trickle?

Refrigerator not refrigerating …errr… cooling?

It’s annoying when the lights work most of the time (only happens when it’s dark outside)…

It’s aggravating when the shower barely spits and dribbles water (only happens when theres soap in my eyes)…

It’s infuriating discovering warm beer in the refrigerator (only happens when thirsty)…...
