Those who have been following my videos have probably heard me complain about the handling of the RV; sometimes, it’s downright scary! Road wander, truck blow back, wind, any little rut or bump in the road, and you are veering off, constant steering. The solution? A steering stabilizer (or a track bar, air bags too) I picked this one, good reviews, easy, and affordable (for a steering stabilizer!)Continue reading
People ask, how do you wash that thing? You get an RV washing brush, and just wash it, like a big car! I used some special fiberglass anti-oxidant and polish, and she is now gleaming in the sun!Continue reading

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!Continue reading
