Dog in an RV

 

54% of RVers bring pets on the road with them*. With this in mind, we wanted to share some tips and advice to help you and your four-legged companions better experience the RV lifestyle together.

So whether you’re a dog lover or more of a cat person, you’ll find information that will ensure you and your furry friends safely enjoy your next journey.

Before You Depart

  • If in the past – such as on short trips to the vet – your pet acted frightened, got sick, or was very loud or vocal, these could be signs that your pet may not enjoy a long voyage. Before heading out, you’ll want to determine whether or not your pet is road ready, which includes taking health, age and personality into consideration.
  • When it comes to planning, the internet can be your greatest ally. Sites like gopetfriendly.com can help you locate pet-friendly accommodations, parks, even veterinarians and pet supply stores  based on where you’ll be traveling.
  • Plan to visit your veterinarian before your trip, especially if you’re unsure whether or not your pet is current on all vaccinations or will be visiting campgrounds and similar sites where other animals are likely to be present. 
  • Contact any resorts or campgrounds you intend to visit ahead of time so that you are aware of any pet policies or restrictions.
  • Be sure to bring all vaccination records and other health-related documents, as many campgrounds and RV resorts require them. It also helps to have your vets phone number written down or stored in your mobile phone, just in case.
  • Bring more than enough food and treats, especially if your travel plans will take you far from a pet or grocery store. And you’ll want to pack food and water bowls that are no-slip or no-spill in order to avoid frequent messes.
  • Pack cleanup items like paper towels, bath towels, disinfecting wipes and carpet cleaner just in case your pet gets wet or dirty exploring the outdoors or has an accident while on the road.
  • If your pet has a favorite bed or toy(s), make sure to bring them along as these items can help your pet feel more comfortable inside of your coach.
  • Insect repellents and sunscreens formulated specifically for pets can turn out to be wise purchases, especially if you plan to explore hiking trails or other wilderness environments with your pet.

Once you hit the road

  • It is almost always a good idea to secure your pet inside of a crate or large carrier while your motorhome is in motion. Not only will this keep your pet from climbing in your lap while driving, it provides a level of protection in the event of a sudden slowdown or accident.
  • Make sure your pet is always wearing a collar, complete with an identification tag labeled with a phone number where you can be reached immediately, such as your mobile phone number. It is also wise to consider microchipping in case your pet runs off and loses his collar and identification tag in the process.
  • If you’re traveling with a dog, make sure you to walk him or her as often as possible, as dogs tend to get as restless as their owners after spending hours upon hours on the road. And don’t forget plenty of plastic bags for cleaning up after your pooch.
  • Make sure your dog (or cat) is always kept on a leash when outside of your RV. This not only helps you comply with the rules in place at many campsites, campgrounds, and resorts, it helps to maintain a safe environment for others and their furry companions.
  • For times when you’re looking to setup camp and relax outside of your coach, a portable fence is a great way to allow your pet to enjoy the same luxury without forcing you to hold onto to a leash all night.

When buying a new or used RV, one of the most important things to do, is inspect the roof. After all, the roof is where most leaks begin and that’s where to look for signs of moisture intrusion, which you will follow up by looking inside the coach.

You’ll also want to look at the air conditioners, antennas, and other equipment on the roof. But getting on the roof requires that you use a ladder.

Most RVs have ladders attached and this would seem like the obvious method to use, to get onto the roof. In many cases, this would be true.

When buying a new or used RV, one of the most important things to do, is inspect the roof. After all, the roof is where most leaks begin and that’s where to look for signs of moisture intrusion, which you will follow up by looking inside the coach.

You’ll also want to look at the air conditioners, antennas, and other equipment on the roof. But getting on the roof requires that you use a ladder.

Most RVs have ladders attached and this would seem like the obvious method to use, to get onto the roof. In many cases, this would be true.

As a certified inspector with the National RV Inspectors Association, I’ve seen more than a few mounted RV ladders that I would feel quite comfortable using. But, sadly, RV manufacturers don’t seem to follow any kind of standard for roof ladder construction and mounting. That’s why I and every other certified RV inspector I know carry our own ladders.

I don’t want to discourage you from inspecting the roof of the RV you’re about to purchase. You need to inspect the roof. Just give the ladder a thorough examination, before you try to use it. Better yet, bring your own ladder and some sliced pool noodles. I’ll explain the pool noodles in a moment.

Before I go into using your own ladder, let’s look at some of the issues I’ve found, regarding attached roof ladders.

Common roof ladder issues

In the photo above, you’ll notice that not only has the ladder been bent downward, from weight, but also it is bent inward, near the middle. Compare the straight yellow line, with the bend in the aluminum.

The photo below is of a small area of the same ladder (outlined in a green dotted box, in the first photo). As you can see, not only has it been bent down somewhat, but also one of the shaped spacers is missing and the screw at that point has been tightened too far, bending the metal tube out of shape. This is clearly a roof ladder to be avoided.

The photo at the top of the story is of a different coach. You will notice that the ladder supports, extending from the rear cap, are bent to the side at different angles. All of those yellow lines should be parallel. It’s unclear what damaged this ladder. But it’s another roof ladder that should be avoided.

Furthermore, just because you’re buying an expensive coach, don’t assume that the roof ladder will be as substantial as the rest of the coach. Certainly, as you progress up the price scale, you would expect that the ladders would become increasingly better and in some cases that’s true, just not always.

Photos above and below are of a high-end Class A motorhome. I used this example, because I’ve seen better ladders on different year models of this same coach. The point is that you can’t make assumptions about roof ladder quality, even on the same model of coach, from one year to the next.

In this case, it appears that too much weight was put on the ladder, at some time in the past. You can see how far the ladder was bent down by looking at how far the horizontal supports are from actual horizontal. Once a ladder starts bending, its structure is weakened.

As with the previous two examples, this is another roof ladder to be avoided.

Testing a roof ladder

Before using a roof ladder, you should examine it for bent arms, bent mounting brackets, and loose screws or bolts. If you pull on the ladder and the wall moves with the ladder, then the ladder is probably mounted only to the fiberglass, with no metal or wood support behind it. That sounds hard to believe, but it happens.

Before climbing on a roof ladder, it’s a good idea to reach up and grab the ladder high up and then hang on the ladder, with your knees bent off the ground and shake your body left and right. Watch the mounting points, as you do this. If it doesn’t bend down with your weight and the mounts appear secure, then it’s probably in good condition.

But having seen my share of inadequate roof ladders, I’ll continue to bring my own ladder.

Dealing with a damaged roof ladder

If you’re buying a coach that has a damaged roof ladder, you will probably get little sympathy by complaining about it. But go ahead and try. In all probability, if you buy that coach, you will end up buying a coach with a damaged roof ladder. It’s usually just not worth arguing about.

How difficult is it to repair a damaged roof ladder? Actually, the question should be, “Is it worth repairing a damaged roof ladder?”

Keep in mind that when you repair a roof ladder, the result will likely be a roof ladder that has the same inadequacies that allowed the damage to occur in the first place.

Selecting the right ladder

Now consider that, even if the roof ladder is damaged or inadequate, you still need to examine the roof, before you buy. Sure, an NRVIA Certified RV Inspector will do that for you and a whole lot more.

But you may want to look at the roof, before you hire an inspector. After all, if you find a showstopper on the roof and decide not to go forward, then you will have saved yourself the cost of a full, professional inspection.

A professional RV inspection can save you a lot of money and covers issues that require special tools. But why spend money on a professional inspection before you’ve done your own basic inspection and made sure that there is nothing obvious wrong.

So what this all boils down to is that the best option is bring your own ladder and pool noodles.

For RVers, I strongly recommend the Extend and Climb ladder, two large pool noodles, and a roll of double-sided Velcro.

My 15.5-foot ladder is ANSI rated for 250 pounds and compresses down to just 36 inches, which is easy to transport. The 12-foot version is ANSI rated at 300 pounds. I should mention that I receive no compensation for this recommendation. It’s just a great ladder for RVers.

I would caution against buying any of the foreign knock-offs, since they are only EN131 certified. EN131 certification is a European standard that requires testing only at the rated weight, whereas ANSI certification is a US standard that requires testing at four-times the rated weight.

Also, the Extend and Climb is marketed as its actual “length,” whereas the knock-offs are almost always marketed as “reach,” which is three feet longer than the actual length of the ladder. For example, a ladder marketed as having a 15-foot reach is only 12 feet in actual length. If you have a tall coach, you may need those extra few feet.

Pool noodles prevent damage

To prevent damaging the wall of the coach, buy two of the largest pool noodles you can find and slice them down the length of the noodle. Then cut notches on one side of the slit on each noodle, to fit around each rung. A serrated steak knife works well for slicing the pool noodle.

Then cut lengths of Velcro, long enough to reach around the noodles, to hold the pool noodles in place. This allows for easy removal and storage of the pool noodles.

Finally, raise the first several rungs of the ladder and attach the pool noodles. The pool noodles will then protect the coach, when the ladder is fully extended. If you look back at the first photo, you’ll see how the pool noodles on my ladder, protect the coach.

Although it’s difficult to see, at the top of the photo, the size of the smallest aluminum tube on my 250-pound ANSI rated ladder is more than twice the diameter of any tube on any RV ladder. That should tell you all you need to know.

As a final cautionary note, if you are dealing with a coach that has a spoiler or air deflector at the rear of the roof, you should not place a ladder against that spoiler. That spoiler is not structural. Since you also don’t want to place it against an awning, the safest place to place a ladder on such a coach, is usually against the side of the coach, on the street-side.

Sewer tank panic: Learning lessons the hard way https://www.newworldrv.com/rv-lifestyle/sewer-tank-panic-learning-lessons-the-hard-way/ Mon, 21 Jan 2019 16:31:58 +0000 https://www.newworldrv.com/?p=9972

Throughout our time living in the RV, the subject of many conversations has been the sewer tanks. Learning how to dump them was the first lesson and how to keep them from smelling was the second.

After graduating from what seemed like RV Sewer Tanks 101, we’re now learning how to unclog them, when you treat them badly.

A few years ago, we noticed the sewer tank was filling up. This usually wasn’t that big of a deal, mostly since I personally don’t have to dump the tanks — it’s Antwon’s job, yippee! And it wouldn’t have been a big deal that day, since as usual we were camping in a park with full hook-ups, which meant onsite sewer connections.

So on a typical day, when the tank fills up we — and you know I mean Antwon — just goes outside with his black plastic gloves and dumps the tanks.

That day, of course, life wasn’t so simple. As the lights on the tank monitor turned from green to yellow then quickly to red, I knew by the stunned look on my husband’s face, that there was a problem.

What’s the problem? Hmmm… Could it be that as we arrived for our three-month workamping position in Virginia, my husband had a great idea? An idea so wonderful he actually called it brilliant. An idea that he requested a pat on the back for. An idea he was sure you could only get from a real RVer, someone who knew what they were doing.

Never mind that this particular genius of an idea went against what all the manufacturers recommended and what all the experts advised. This had come from a fellow RVer, a man who also lived in his camper. A man we met for literally two minutes while camping in our beloved north Georgia mountains.

You guessed it folks — He left the tanks open. Not just the grey tank, like I told him everyone else does, but both of them. And now the black tank was full while it was open!

Wheels started moving in his head. A plan was brewing. I could see from the expression on his face and the glazed look of his eyes, he was about to start tinkering and I knew right then, this would be my entertainment for the next hour or two.

So I turned off the TV that the kids left on before heading out to play, and I sat back in my favorite spot at the dinette, so I wouldn’t miss any of the action.

After jolting out the door, I could hear him fumbling around in the storage bins looking for tools, probably his black gloves, and who knows what else. I heard the water turn on and what sounded like a tote being filled. I glanced out the window and saw he was filling two five-gallon water tanks at the spigot and caught a glare from his eye.

I sat back quickly, shut the curtain and started to giggle. I knew this was probably a big deal, but I couldn’t help but to relish in the fact that I had been right and that this was all his fault.

My thoughts were interrupted by his sharp words, “Are you not going to help?”

I shook my head, then put my feet up for added comfort.

Over the next hour, he ran in and out of the camper tugging the heavy water tanks back and forth from bathroom to spigot. Sweat was pouring off his forehead and had now soaked his shirt. He checked the tanks, splashed his face with some water from the sink, then continued with his plan.

I could hear him fiddling with the valve outside, cursing up a storm, while trying not to attract attention form the neighbors. He absolutely hates to be wrong — and having an audience while he fixed his mess would be even worse on his ego!

As I sipped my lemonade, I extended an offer to bring him a glass, but he decided he only wanted to drink water, although from what I could see, it looked as though he was full.

I felt bad for enjoying these stressful moments of sewer panic, and began to think of how I could help. After about 30 minutes of just dirty water coming out the hose I made the decision to hop online. Immediately I googled how to unclog an RV toilet and read through the posts and comments to see if there was anything we could try.

Antwon took a break from dumping water to join me at the table, and together we found an easy hack online. It said that if you dumped boiling hot water down your tank it would break up the “stuff” clogging your tank.

Immediately we began boiling pot after pot of water and dumping them one after the other, down the toilet. After a few hours of letting it ‘marinate’ with loads of tank cleaning chemicals, there was finally a trickle coming through the hose. But, we were far from free and clear.

Exhausted and mentally defeated, we agreed to give it a rest for the day since it was manageable for now.

The next day we did the unthinkable. We decide to move the camper. As all full-timers know, RVers don’t like to pack up and move, and we were not different. So although this was a necessary move, it was rather annoying to have to do it, in hopes it would fix the sewer problem because  the solution wasn’t a definite.

We dumped some more chemicals in the tank along with many more pots of boiling hot water, then packed down all the loose items in the trailer and left the bikes and outdoor clutter at the site.

We drove around for a few loops, and then re-parked the camper, hoping all the jiggling from the rough rocky roads would shake up whatever was blocking the lines.

We let it sit overnight, and miraculously when we checked the monitor in the morning, it was down to one-third full.

As we danced around, I couldn’t help to feel really silly for being so excited about the sewer tank. But since it’s a real inconvenience to go to the bathhouse at 3 a.m. when two five year olds have to go potty, I did a few extra dance moves to showcase my enthusiasm.

This was a hard lesson to learn, but thankfully it was a fixable mistake. Sometimes as we travel, we’ll need to learn these hard lessons. Walking in our own shoes and making our own mistakes is sometimes the best way for us to learn — through personal experiences.

“Land Between the Lakes serves as a major wintering spot for bald eagles from northern areas such as Michigan and Canada,” sais John Pollpeter, Nature Station’s lead naturalist. “Since Kentucky and Barkley lakes remain unfrozen throughout winter, they attract northern bald eagles looking for open water where they can find fish. The 300 miles of undeveloped, forested shoreline at Land Between the Lakes provides eagles with the ideal habitat they need to thrive.”

In 2018, biologists counted close to 140 bald eagles wintering in the Land Between the Lakes area, as well as 30 active nests. The eagle cruises give visitors a chance to view the

Azdel Onboard offers alternative to lauan plywood https://www.newworldrv.com/rv-manufacturing/azdel-onboard-offers-alternative-to-lauan-plywood/ https://www.newworldrv.com/rv-manufacturing/azdel-onboard-offers-alternative-to-lauan-plywood/#respond Fri, 11 Jan 2019 21:46:26 +0000 https://www.newworldrv.com/?p=9912 Azdel used on Vintage Cruiser
