Reflooring: Repairing Subfloor Rot – Part 2 (And Done!)
In the last installment, I covered my process for removing and repairing the sections of rotted subfloor. So, the next day, I went ahead and finished the job. My goal was to complete all subfloor prep and have the rig ready to accept the new flooring. So, the first thing I did was to finish…
My Cruise Control Stopped Working! Here’s How I Fixed It (Workhorse Chassis)
My motorhome rides on a Workhorse W22 chassis. I honestly don’t know if what I’m about to say applies to other chassises. It may. You’ll need to do your own research. I first noticed the issue while driving on a bumpy road up in Canada between Montreal and Quebec City. I went to engage the…
Reflooring The RV: Installing Luxury Vinyl Planks
Reader’s Note: It has been over a month since my last update on my reflooring project. I had a few people email me asking what happened. 🙂 I had to rush a bit to finish the job for a camping reservation, so I ended up busting it out without worrying too much about recording videos….
What In The World Happened To Happily RV?
I have to admit… this is a wee bit embarrassing. The last post to this blog was back in August of 2018. About 8 months ago. In the middle of a pretty epic summer trip in the RV. I posted from Monument Valley. Then… nothing. It isn’t as if nothing happened after that. 🙂 Monument…
Epic Campground Scenery In Monument Valley
We couldn’t come out west and not stop into Monument Valley. So, after Mesa Verde, that was our next stop. I had only scheduled 2 nights (one full day) to stay here, however. While the scenery is epic, truth is there isn’t a lot to do. There are some commercial tours if you like that…
Which Is More Economical? An RV Trip or a Car Trip? [CASE STUDY]
In the summer of 2014, I took my family on a 3-week RV trip. 3 weeks on the road with a family of 4. Not exactly the cheapest thing to do, right? Well, as we were camping on the side of the Atlantic Ocean on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, I thought I would…
At 85 and over 400K miles behind the steering wheel of 11 motorhome, I still enjoy the open road and look forward to the hill or curve in the road. RV’ing under these conditions is a complex set of variables. The secret is as alway the 3 “P’s” Patience,, Perseverance and Placidity. I was born and raised in a Tear Drop so I learned well
Welcome back. We all experience life changes. We just keep going.
We were travelling ,van style, quite a bit from N.S. to CALIFORNIA with a lot of stops in between. Like you COVID and the TRUMP has stopped all that and will look forward to anything that you might want to send out!
Yes, agreed a resource site is good. Would love to travel more too, it is our escape not what we do full time. Let’s go!
Right on! Hope I can make this site useful to people.
Thanks for the explanation David. I like to give everyone a second chance. My only concern is that you have mentioned a few times that you are NOT full time. I am full time since November 2019. So, I am wondering if you can keep my interest? So, I’ll give you a go and if things dont pan out, I can always axe you later! ????
That’s the spirit. 😉
What I have in mind here is more of a resource site, not a travel journal. So, I don’t think it will be some time-sensitive on me traveling around.
Sweating here isn’t the word! For the last 4 days here in Ocala when I’ve check around 3 to 4 PM we’ve had a heat index of 110 or more as I have an indoor out door thermometer that also read relative and a button I can push to give the heat index. This northern boy stands still at 75 degrees and sweats. I can’t begin to tell you how bad I sweat at 90+ degrees but after 15 to 30 minutes my clothes look like I just got out of the shower with them on. I’ve shown my wife how wet they were by wringing the sweat out of my shirt, pants, underwear and each sock.
Haha. Yeah, its a scorcher. I’m originally from Florida, though, so it isn’t so bad for me. But, the last few days with the Sahara sand floating in the air has made things hotter than normal. Even by Florida standards.
Glad you’re back and staying healthy..
Thank you. 🙂
I hope you can continue your reporting. I have been looking at a couple HR Vacationer’s (an ’02and an ’04). Your videos are very well done and have given me valuable info in helping me as I make my decision. Good luck and stay healthy.
