I'd stay away from the cheap 12v "tire inflators" from Walmart, etc. I burned through 3 of them. They took forever to even top off my truck tires to 35psi, and wouldn't get my trailer tires...

I ran across an upside down 30A plug at a state park in Nebraska a few years ago. Mentioned it to the ranger, and he fixed it later that day. At almost every park, I've found the 15A/120v plug is...

EPA requires commercial enterprises use latex-based glue rather than the old (stinky & highly flammable) solvent-based glue. It gets sprayed on, and it dries faster than solvent-based glue. As a...

If your rig was winterized, make sure your pump bypass is not still in the "suck from the antifreeze bottle" mode. I saw that a lot last spring & summer, with so many new RV's & RV'ers out!
