Fulltime RV Solar Panels Blacktop Boondocking

Looking at some different solar panel set ups. The panels on that Patriot Class A were really impressive! I think swiveling on the roof is the optimal set up.

Wilson Sleek WiFi Booster for Fulltime RV Life

Had to get a new Wilson, my old one did not do 4G LTE. Working good, and very “sleek” and small! Brings up the bars, and speeds things up. Of course, there needs to be a signal in the first place, it can only amplify what is there.

Fulltime RV Verizon 4G and Campground WiFi Often Sucks!

Just a little demo of “Blazing Fast 4G” (dial up speed) at Lake Tahoe. Calling support is getting old… maybe this is due to sun flares and sunspots? The campground WIFi is even worse.

Rust Doctor on my 87 Suzuki Samurai Fulltime RV Toad Car

Rust encapsulation, trying to be a good car owner, and make this old gal last another 27 years! The info said it was supposed to transform rust, but really, it seems like it encases it in plastic.

Pin Stripe Eraser Removing Stripes from my RV Dinghy Car

Magic eraser for racing stripes! Took maybe an hour, or 1 1/2 hours. This does wear down, my car is little, a bigger car or boat (or RV) with lots of stripes would require more than one of these.

DIY Rustoleum Paint Job for a Car Suzuki Samurai Fulltime RV

Amazed and entertained the neighbors! No one had ever seen a woman painting her own car! Turned out good, but I do need to wash off some white residue from the rubbing compound. Also, that metallic paint has a lot of glitter, which makes it a little rough, but not bad for about $70. BTW, it took about 12 cans.

Weight Distribution Lightening the Load Storage Bin Covers Fulltime RV

The verdict was it needed a new steering dampener, and and bent rims. Got some new rims, much better now!

87 Suzuki Samurai + Bent Rims = Death Wobble!

Apparently, the previous owner was playing a little too hard with his toys, and damaged the rims (so the tires are thus, not exactly round) Ordered new rims, not as pretty, but far more functional!

Fulltime RV Preventing Condensation Damp Rid

Prevent mold and mildew from growing in the nooks and crannies of your rig as best you can by keeping it dry inside. What happens is, when it’s cold outside, but warm inside your RV the moisture condenses on the windows and walls, and can contribute to mold and mildew. Keeping the roof vents and windows open for ventilation is the best thing, but that’s not possible in the cold weather.

Replacing RV Carpet with Vinyl Wood Planks Fulltime RV

I spent 3 days on my own tearing up the dashboard and cockpit area, and both of us 5 days to finish it off! Sorry I didn’t get the video of carpeting the engine housing, but that was an intense day, and I forgot. MESSAGE TO RV DESIGNERS AND MANUFACTURERS: Carpet does not belong in a “camper”.

RV Awning Unrolled While Driving Fulltime RV

My awning partially unrolled while going 50 mph! The wind was a constant 25-40 mph non-stop for more than 3 days, so I took it into an RV repair place to get help getting it safely re-rolled. Turns out, the people I bought it from had apparently left the awning arms unlocked, and only secured with the straps! One was taken off, and the rear arm came down enough to let it 1/2 unroll!
