Thanks for visiting and enjoy all the information! RV.Net Blog AdminOn our LongLongHoneymoon.com website, we often inform RV camping newcomers about products that service the RV lifestyle. Take the Camco Sidewinder Sewer Support (http://goo.gl/T7j1rg), for example. This is one of those products that pretty much every RV owner acquires, sooner or later. But when you buy your first RV, you may have no idea these things exist. No one grows up fantasizing about someday buying a really nice sewer hose support. In fact, many newbies might reasonably ask, “What the heck is a sewer hose support and why on earth do I want one?” With a sewer hose support, gravity works WITH you to drain your tanks. (Click the pic to get your own.) Here’s the deal. When you empty your RV water tanks, you really want ALL of their contents to flow freely through your sewer hose into the dump station abyss. The less time spent actually handling the sewer hose, the better. (That’s my own personal policy, anyway.) Yet sometimes if the hose is lying flat on the ground, its contents do not completely drain. The Sidewinder model even includes a carrying... Read more



Is this the BEST RV SHOWER?

July 31, 2013 by Loloho.com · Leave a Comment 

RV camping is all about water management. At the same time, we all love hot showers with good water pressure. That’s why we own an Oxygenics showerhead (http://goo.gl/v120EW). It delivers the best RV shower we’ve found. Life without fresh water quickly becomes intolerable. If you are camping at a campground with water and sewer hookups, then your needs are met. But if you are boondocking or dry camping – camping without any water hookup, which my wife and I do often – you are reliant on a limited fixed supply. It’s critical that you use water wisely. Click the pic for more info. No matter what kind of RV you own, you probably have a fresh water tank. That tank contains a limited supply of water that you use for drinking, cooking, washing, showering, and flushing. Our freshwater tank holds 54 gallons of water. Until a person goes RV camping, they have no idea how much water they use on a daily basis. In the United States, the average water usage per person (amongst non-camping persons) is 80-100 gallons per day. Think about that for a moment. Let me repeat: we have a 54 gallon fresh water tank in our Airstream. The average daily usage for two people is 160-200 gallons. If we used water in the same way non-camping people do, our freshwater tank would be dry by noon every day! We’d constantly be running out of water, and life would be a pain in the buttocks area. But we don’t, and it isn’t. Here’s why. Over the years, we’ve... Read more



Vintage Trailer Restoration Project Captured on Video

October 10, 2011 by Mark Polk · 47 Comments 

  Earlier this year video producer Mark Polk, of RV Education 101, decided to produce an online RV series, titled “Mark’s RV Garage.”  Polk explained the goal of the show was to help educate and entertain RV consumers and RV enthusiasts. When considering a feature segment for the new RV series Polk decided to tackle a vintage trailer restoration project. Little did he know at the time the scope the restoration project would entail.  Unforeseen damage, below the surface of the exterior metal, would result in dismantling the project trailer down to the bare frame and rebuilding it from the ground up. Adding to the complexity of an already daunting challenge Polk’s plans included upgrading the old trailer with modern day RV equipment and amenities. As season one of the new RV series progressed each step of the vintage restoration project was captured along the way. What initially began as a 10 episode season evolved into 17 episodes, culminating in the season finale where the finished product was revealed to viewers for the first time. When asked to recap season one of “Mark’s RV Garage” Polk responded, “I think anybody who likes RVs, or is thinking an RV might be in their future would not only enjoy watching the vintage restoration project unfold, but could learn a great deal from the series too.
