Now that our 7-month-old Ram 3500 truck has crossed 10,000 total miles and about 5000 towing miles I’m back with a review update.  We have just completed our annual winter RV snowbird journey from British Columbia down the west coast and into the southwest desert and back. It’s been a good test for the truck towing a variety of roads and landscapes. I won’t go through all the pros and cons, etc. This video is just an update to let you all know how it’s been performing and whether any new defects or dislikes have cropped given more use and

In this video, I show you a neat little product called Wago Lever Nuts to help make connecting wires a snap. No soldering or crimping needed. The only tool required is a wire stripper. They are also simple to disconnect and can be reused. Handy for testing and troubleshooting circuits They wouldn’t be suitable for outside use as they aren’t waterproof or for use on a wire that gets any movement or vibration, ie. Trailer brake wiring. But for many projects or mods around the RV, they could be a quick and convenient method of connecting wire versus solder, crimps

In this first video, I show you a slice of the beautiful coastline of my old home town of Victoria BC. Greater Victoria is located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, almost completely surrounded by the ocean. You’ll view video footage of its pretty harbor area and the beach along the Dallas road waterfront out to Clover Point Park. We’ll see various active watercraft, seaplane & ferry traffic, local wildlife and get up close views into the rocky tide pools.

In part one of our 2018/19 snowbird seasons final two videos, we take a look at Dosewallips State Park located on the Hood Canal in western Washington State. I show you our campsite area, and we take a walk out onto the nearby beach and tidal flats for a look around. This tidal estuary is a popular place for gathering oysters and clams or wildlife viewing. We quickly spotted a bald eagle, seagulls, terns, Canada geese, red-winged blackbirds, a Great Blue Heron, and other assorted songbirds. Dosewallips State Park Video In this final video of the trip, we visit a

In this video, I take you along on a morning hike into the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. We hike from the John Kellenback Trailhead through a patch of coastal forest and out onto the sand dunes. This part of the dunes is pretty well untouched by ATV tracks and has one rather towering sand dune. I hike to the top and give you a 360 view of the remarkable terrain. After the dune hike, we visit a Highway 101 wayside viewpoint for an overlook at the coastline below, then drive down along Umpqua Beach. There I show a dune

In this video, I give you a look around Winchester Bay, Oregon, and its RV camping opportunities. The Douglas County Parks Department runs all the camping. We camped in the Salmon Harbor Marina area on a large paved earthen jetty between the boat slips. It’s dry camping for $17 a night $102 a week or $306 a month. You get a picnic table and metal BBQ. There is a $10 dump station on the property and washrooms, and I think pay showers. I also show you the hookup campsites located in Windy Cove Rv Park, loops A and B then

In this video, I upgrade the three basement storage door catches on my 2011 Keystone Cougar fifth wheel trailer. I upgrade from the OEM plastic type catches to ones made of metal. They have a stainless steel mounting plate with an aluminum catch. To intall, I unscrewed the old catches, cleaned off the old sealant and installed the new metal catches using butyl tape to seal the backing plate and screw holes. These should be an improvement over the plastic catches which were easy to accidentally damage when washing the rig. Or they would get brittle in freezing weather and

In this video, I give you a look at our route north and west through California and up into Oregon and over to the west coast. The journey takes us from the Mojave desert over the tail end of the Sierra Nevada through the Central Valley then up passed Mt Shasta, over the Siskiyou Pass, into the great state of Oregon. Once in Oregon, we follow the Interstate 5 for a bit before cutting over to the coast landing at Salmon Harbor Marina in Winchester Bay. Via photos, video clips, and dashcam footage I give you a look at our

With the end of our latest southern desert snowbird season coming to an end we will soon be making our way north and west along the Oregon and Washington coasts and into BC for the spring and summer. As we leave sunny California behind, the prospect for rain increases dramatically. I needed to check the roof. After five months of desert dryness and sun, I find this is a good time for an inspection and maintenance of my now 8-year-old rubber roof on the Keystone Cougar trailer. I usually wash it with Dawn dish soap and clean any stubborn dirt

In this video, I show myself dumping our Keystone Cougar’s 3 RV holding tanks at a rest stop dump station. I show how quick, clean and efficient the task is with my custom sewer system setup. The OEM sewer arrangement has been modded to allow my Waste Master sewer hose to always be connected, by way of a storage box mounted under the fifth wheel trailer. There is no need to be fussing about connecting, disconnecting, rinsing and storing my hose in bins or bumpers. Sure saves time at the dump station! The setup wasn’t exactly cheap, but we are
