A new issue of the RV Life and Travel E-zine went out yesterday. If you have questions about our NexGen lithium ion batteries, this is the issue you've been watching for.
The NexGen batteries we bought for our motorhome are working well. We are finding these lithium ion batteries have advantages over deep cycle, 12-volt lead-acid batteries commonly used in RVs.
LED lights. What took us so long to replace the old, florescent tube lights with efficient LED fixtures in our RV? It was not knowing how much energy they would save and how much we would like them.

When go to events, we visit with the vendors. Ray had a table set up selling old-time hand crank telephones, horse tack, leather goods, and other miscellany. He was telling us about his friends who travel and what they do for work. His friend is a rodeo announcer. His friend's wife is a chiropractor. She works the rodeos, too. Cowboys getting thrown from bulls…certainly seems logical they'd be in pain and could use a chiropractic adjustment. But, the twist is that she works on the horses. We keep looking for more kinds of work RVers can do, and being an equine chiropractor is one we hadn't had on the list.
We sent out an RV Life and Travel E-zine update this week, with a recap of what we did this summer. In fact, the title of the feature article is one Bob wrote, "What I Did on My Summer Vacation."
Remember back in grade school, where the first assignment each fall was to write about what you did over the summer? Well, since fall is here, I thought

Ask questions before accepting a position. An RVer who wishes to remain anonymous writes, "We should have asked more questions up front - instead of learning later that the wife's job was spending the majority of the time standing in a chuck wagon for six hours and the husband cleaning the restrooms and maintenance/mowing, etc. Since I hate to cook for other people, working six hours cooking hamburgers and burritos is awful. We have learned to ask up front what is required and be sure it's what we want to do for an entire summer."
Resealing my motorhome roof turned out to be a labor-intensive project. It is a 1987 model, so amongst the many other necessary maintenance items to do was to reseal the roof.
