RV'ers - Reddit by /u/benagami - 2h ago

I was in a rush to get out of town and on the road. When I arrived at my destination there wasn't a weird smell in my RV.

Was it the plastic bag that I hit on the highway and melted to my exhaust?

Or perhaps it was the mold encrusted sponge in the sink?

Last but not least, the crusty bottom of the dog's booster seat?

I need to do a better job inspecting my rig before I leave. The combination of all three of these smells was really disgusting. To make matters worse, my dog smells awful from riding in his booster seat.

Hey everyone.

I recently purchased a travel trailer that likely clocks in at 4000-4500lbs (18" 1986 prowler). Im towing it with a 2013 ford explorer with class 3 tow package.

Everything about rving is amazing. Just one problem.

Its costing a fortune to move it. Is it normal to be spending a full tank of gas every 3 hours on the road? What can I do to reduce the cost?

OK...In my efforts are understanding the aspects of handling the "owning a Travel Trailer" I am trying to understand all the logistics of owning a camper.

This question is for those of you that are not full time RVers, as I wont be one.

Its time for you to drive home and put your RV in "storage". What type of place do you store it at? field...concrete lot? covered/uncovered/etc.

The big question is once you park it and put the jacks down...what other things do you do before/after you are at this moment. Anything with the tanks? Bug traps inside the trailer? Open or crack windows? Cover the entire RV in a tarp/cover or maybe wheels? Remove the battery(ies)? Remove the propane tank(s)? Remove anything else?

I sincerely want to learn all the myriad of steps you do when you are done with your trailer and are moving it to storage

I have a steep driveway and every time i pull my toy hauler in and out the scissor jacks get bend on the concrete. I really don’t want to keep having to pay to replace them. Other than storing my trailer somewhere else what can I do to stop this from happening. Right now I’m just bolting and unbolting them every single time I use my drive way and it’s getting really old fast. Any other ideas?

We just bought our 2018 FSX 197BH and I'm trying to figure out where to mount the TV. The TV hookup is above the counter top, to the left of the door as you walk in. Are you supposed to install the mounting arm there, under the cabinet and right above the counter or somewhere else?

We have a 32 inch smart TV and want to mount it with an articulating arm. Any advice appreciated!

Thanks!

I have seen some really cheap ones on Craigslist but don’t know if I should trust them. I don’t mind fixing some stuff up. I’m not a rich dude but I’d like to get an RV that I could possibly take and convert into a tiny home at some point.

The biggest reason we got a camper was to be able to do cheaper vacations but with things like AirBnB, the cost of towing the camper + camp site is often more expensive than the cost of gas + the rental. We have school-aged kids so taking school-year trips means that we just go to places near us which gets boring and during the summer it's just too hot so we stay home. When we want to take a trip, we want to go far so AirBnB ends up being significantly cheaper.

I don't know. I'm very on the fence on this. Anyone else been in this position?
