Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

Wind farm security. Christmas tree lot manager. Oil field gate guard. Restaurant cook, dishwasher, and servers. These are among the job openings that we posted the past few days. All of them pay hourly wages for all hours worked. All of them also provide a full hook-up RV space.

Also posted this past week are RV park jobs that pay hourly wages for all hours worked and give you a FHU RV site. And, for those who prefer to trade out work for their site, we posted some of those campground jobs, too.

Over at RV Life and Travel, we have articles about using your RV in emergencies. Bob and I averted crisis last week by relocating early to our winter destination.

Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

Disney jobs: join the magic, receive hourly pay, discounts, and free admissions. Disney is synonymous with dreams. The Walt Disney job information websites show how you can be a part of the magic. Cast members working for the mouse serve and entertain guests 24 hours a day.

No, Bob and I aren’t working at Disneyland, Disney World, or one of the other Disney properties.

I’m sharing this info because we keep hearing false rumblings that Disney no longer hires working RVers. Those rumors simply are not true.

Used RV Buying Tip

When buying a used RV, look for water stains on the ceiling and walls. Water stains aren't just a cosmetic problem. They are signs of a leak. Leaks likely mean structural damage. Structural damage can be expensive to repair.

Camping and RV Etiquette Tip

Respect campsite boundaries. Neither your children nor your pets should be allowed onto your campground neighbor's site. Teach your children to walk along the side of the roads or on sidewalks -- and to not run through anyone else's site. Your RV, including your slide-outs, and your vehicle should all be parked completely on your site. Same with your lawn chairs, bicycles, and other camping equipment, they belong on your campsite, not on your neighbors.
