DVD: Working On The RV Road Learn how to earn income while RVing. Author and work camping expert Jaimie Hall reveals what you need to know to gain employment or run your own business while traveling with a recreational vehicle.
Even a simple tune-up for your engine helps fuel economy and ensures best possible performance. Home mechanics, change your oil and filter every 3,000 miles... and when was the last time you changed the air filter? Spark plugs?
Going on a long, potentially fuel-expensive trip? Before you go, lubricate everything that moves -- starting at the bottom. Repack the wheel bearings, oil the shackles, lift bars and hitch, check the differential and transmission fluids. Living full-time in our rigs, sometimes itís easy to overlook the details.
Park and pedal Instead of hopping in the car for short jaunts, jump on a bike. Riding a bicycle is like eating all your vegetables -- it may not always be fun, but itís good for you! Think of the gas you wonít need.
Carpool Share rides, take a friend along, offer to pick up groceries for your neighbors. This is a great way to get to know your camp-mates, and a great fuel saver when camping in remote locations.
Lighten the load. Leave the heavy stuff at home, or stored when not needed. Packing your rig with most of the load in front of the axles improves handling and performance.
Empty the gray and black tanks but do not fill the water tanks before you leave! Water weighs 8.33 pounds per gallon, and more than likely will be available at your destination.
Buy your groceries when you get there. Canned food contains extra water and weight. Remember backpacking? Keep it light, all right?
And have some fun out there!
