 Florida

Florida might not be known for its high altitudes

but when it comes to camping near and at the beaches, there are very few places in the world that can beat it. While the big cities in the state are known for an amazing nightlife, the travelers and campers are often looking for quiet and tranquil places to visit.

Exterior Travel Trailer
 Maintenance
By: Jason Essary, Service Manager
 
Exterior Camper Maintenance
Every recreational vehicle requires maintenance just like your automobile and your residential house. Your RV could even be considered a combination of both your residence and your auto as it is designed for traveling down the road and providing a living space. To keep your RV in the best condition possible it will require weekly, monthly and yearly maintenance of several different components on your camper. Some of these scheduled maintenance items may depend on your style of camping, how often you use the camper, what environment the camper is typically in or the amount of miles put on the camper.

Environment
Different environments impact your RV in different ways. For instance extremely dusty conditions will require more frequent cleaning of you’re A/C filter and screen on your main cabin fan and bath fan. If you park under tree coverage, you may find that it is necessary to clean the roof of your camper, awnings, and window tracks more often as debris will build up and clog or damage some of the systems. Coastal areas will require more cleaning of the exterior as the salt in the air will start to damage your stainless steel, chrome, steel, and aluminum metals. Areas where road salts are used will require more frequent cleaning of the frame as the salt will cause galvanic reaction between the steel sub assembly and aluminum frame. The zinc anodes are in place to take the brunt of this reaction and thus may require replacement sooner when in these conditions.

Mileage
Like that of its counterpart the camper along with your tow vehicle will require more maintenance with increased mileage. Road mileage can play a big impact on the overall wear and tear on the camper. Your camper’s exterior shell is sealed with an excellent silicone however over time it will start to break down and separate. We recommend re-sealing the exterior shell at least once per year but excessive mileage over 12,000 miles per year may require that you reseal more often as the road vibration will start to separate the silicone. Your wheel bearings and EZ Flex Suspension components will also need to be maintenance more often with increased mileage. Wheel bearing repack is recommended every 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first. The EZ Flex system should be maintenance every 3 months or 3,000 miles whichever comes first.

Usage
Some systems will require maintenance based on usage amounts regardless of mileage on the camper itself. For instance the standard water heater will need the anode replaced quicker with more use just as the on-demand water heater will need to be run through a cleaning cycle sooner. Your jacks will also need to be maintenance more often with higher use but the recommended maintenance interval is set for once per year. You may also find that the water pump filter will need to be cleaned out more often with higher use as well as the blade valves lubricated more often. These are just a few examples of systems aboard your camper that need to be inspected or maintained regularly.

Proper Maintenance
When properly maintained your camper’s exterior fiberglass shell and aluminum frame will stand up against the elements and last a lifetime continuing to provide you the best camping experience.

An Oliver Travel Trailers' Journey
The Channeled Scablands - Part 1
By: Frank McMichael, Hull #101
 
picture
For reasons not completely understood, the Earth has cycled in and out of ice ages for millions of years. The cycle includes approximately 100,000 years of polar ice caps moving toward the equator interspersed with interglacials of approximately 12,000 to 15,000 years whereby the ice caps would significantly melt and retreat because warming occurred. The Arctic and Antarctic ice caps of today are remnants...

This is my journey...

Eggnog

It's taken me several years to perfect this recipe.

Now everyone asks, 'When are you making the eggnog?!' This uses cooked eggs for safety, and you can use more or less rum to taste. It's a bit of work to make, but well worth it. You'll never buy store-bought eggnog again! Enjoy!"

Total: 6 Hours 30 Minutes

Prep:  20 Minutes
