When you own an RV you are able to bring some of the comforts of home along with you. Instead of sleeping in a tent on the ground you have the comfort of a mattress and blankets. You can cook in a kitchen and use a private bathroom. But, what about when you step out the door? Whether you are a full-time RVer or just an occasional traveler, it's nice to feel like you are at home. Here are 5 tips to help you turn your campsite into a home:
If you have paid any attention to the news or social media during the past month you know what's happening on August 21st - The Solar Eclipse. Why is it such a big deal? The U.S. hasn't witnessed a total eclipse of the sun since 1979. Unfortunately, California is not on the path of "totality", which is where you can witness the moon covering the sun 100%. However, you can still get a great view of the event from the state. If you want to move closer to the path of totality just pack up the RV.

Summer is almost here, and it’s time for camping! Here are 5 cleaning tips for RVs that will help keep the RV in tip top shape.
1. Vacuum/sweep and maybe mop after your camping trip or getting the RV out of storage after a few months. Cleaning after trips and long term storage will make pre-camping trip prep much quicker and easier.
2. Use gentle cleaners on your sinks and toilets. Most long term RVers swear by using vinegar and baking soda. These common household ingredients are easy on your tanks, and will help keep them in tip top shape.
3. Use a tank treatment product regularly, like Walex Bio-Pak Natural Holding Tank Deodorizer and Waste Digester, to keep your tanks from getting too smelly and reducing buildup.
4. Use a Squeegee wiper in the shower to help get condensation off the walls and down the drain. Moisture in an RV can really ruin things! [...]
Nothing is more irksome than starting off a camping trip by arriving at your campsite and finding it full of trash. All too often RVers complain about other campers ruining camping experiences by leaving behind their trash, not picking up bullet or shotgun casings, leaving broken glass everywhere, or otherwise leaving a mess of a campsite. It doesn’t matter if camping occurs in the wild, like on state or federal land, or on private property like a RV resort, a trashy site is a complete and total bummer.
Some Tips for Being a Good Steward:
1. Pack it in, pack it out (or put your trash in established trash containers). If the trash is full, take your trash to another trash can.
