Tulalip Casino in Marysville

We live just across the border in Canada and often stay at the Tulalip Casino on the first night of our RV trips south. It's free (although they do want you to utilize their casino) with no hookups,...

Another idea - get a ABS or PVC drain pipe reducer from a local plumbing store where the narrower end fits into your existing cupholder and the larger end will fit your coffee mug. Get a little...

To save out battery power on colder nights, I cover the air outlets in the LR and Kitchen and leave the one in the BR open so it get most of the heat. I turn the thermostat down to the low 60's to...

RV Washing

We camped at Eagles Rest RV Park in Valdez, Alaska a couple years ago and were told that we could wash our RV if we wanted to. I was shocked that they would even tell us that. The entire campsite...

Pullrite Slider

I agree with Biggar. We pulled a 2007 Montana at around 14,000 lbs for 9 years and felt our 2007 2500HD GMC Sierra did a good job, and it did. But it cost me 2 turbos (money). It was just too much...

We have a 2007 3400 RL Montana that's about 14,000 lbs loaded. THat's 5 lbs over the trailer GVWR. Close enough. We have pulled it with a 2007 GMC 2500HD Duramax (LBZ) and it has done a very fine...

Pullrite Slider

i've had a Pullrite SuperSlider #4400 on my 2007 Sierra 2500 for 9 years and have never regretted the extra cost for an auto slider. You just need to dent your cab and trailer cap once to pay the...

50 Amp Plug

Yes, the 50 amp cords are heavy. I have camped a few times where my cord does not reach the pedestal. Instead of an extension cord, I added another 50 amp receptacle close to the service centre...

Campsite Receptacles

Another reason the campsite receptacle could be "smoked" or discoloured is that campers will plug their power cord into their RV first, then into the campsite receptacle with the breaker in the "ON"...

Tank Monitor/Flush

Like many above have posted, factory tank sensors almost never give you an accurate level of your tanks, except maybe the fresh water tank. On my current RV (2007 Montana 3400RL) I installed the...

Another thing to consider is the weight. Latex mattresses are quite a bit heavier than a pocket coil or "regular" type of mattress.

Brett and Cheri.

It took me about a year to figure out what the HW switch inside the RV was for. It was to turn on the gas/propane to heat the hot water tank (HWT). BUT, there is a 120V switch...
