Rainwater Collection off my RV Roof

This is my system for collecting rainwater off the roof of my small Class A; the Fiesta 26Q only has a 30 gallon fresh tank. I had a similar set up on my travel trailer, and it worked like a champ! Continue reading

I Install Airtabs on my Class A RV

Airtabs are supposed to make an un-aerodynamic vehicle more aerodynamic. They are sold for big rig trucks, but also very good for RVs, they’re supposed to cut way down on the “whoosh” and push when a big truck roars by you on the interstate, making the RV easier to handle. They’re also supposed to improve gas mileage. There were a lot of good reviews on RV forums (not shills) so I decided to make the investment. We’ll see how they perform next time I hit the road!

Fulltime RV Hillbilly Wheel Covers

I have some nice Camco wheel covers, but the wheel wells on the front of my RV are very deep, making it very hard to reach my arms up and over the tires. I have seen the expensive Class As with a sort of curtain that snaps over, so this is my cheap do it yourself version. Continue reading

Retrofitting My Fulltime RV Propane for an Extra Tank

I needed to get an extra fitting installed to use an extra, outside propane tank. Wasn’t too expensive. This will come in handy, when I either can’t find a propane station to fill the onboard tank, or, if I am parked for a few weeks.

Changing the 751 RV Locks for Combination Locks

Did you know, all RVs, travel trailers, 5th Wheels, etc, all have the same locks, with the same key, unless you change them? The key says 751, and that means, anyone with a key can open your storage, and get into your stuff! Not to be paranoid, but, seems wise to do something about that! Continue reading

RV Back Up Camera ~ JVC Reciever and Clarion Camera

Got the back up camera set up! It comes on automatically when the RV is put in reverse, but I can also push a button and have it on while I am driving, to see who is following me! The camera is a Clarion CC510, and it has distance guide lines; red, orange, yellow and green. Mine is about 5 feet to the red line, and 12 feet to the green line. (Disclaimer, these are my measurements, for my camera, measure your own if you want to, and follow the manufactuerer’s instructions. If you get into an accident after watching my informative little video, it’s on you!) Continue reading
