The bugs and overcrowded campsites are gone!
Fall is a great time to take out your RV or rental RV to take advantage of what autumn has to offer.
With so many days consistently reaching over 100 degrees this past summer, the changing of the seasons is welcomed. Mosquitos and annoying insects are less active in the cooler temperature. Many families do not camp during the school year. You can enjoy your campsite, trails and amenities around you with less people.
Chilly mornings paired with your favorite cup of coffee, watching the sunrise in the crisp fresh air is amazing. The colors nature has to offer this time of the year can be breathtaking. Cooler days, makes hiking and exploring without the heat and humidity much more enjoyable.
Autumn is a great time to take your RV or rental RV out camping. Events to make your RV adventure more fun; apple picking, pumpkin picking / carving, decorate your RV for fall or Halloween, local harvest festivals.
As an RV beginner, you might not have a campground routine yet. Having a checklist will ensure everything is set up as it should be.
- Check the site for low hanging branches or obstacles on the ground.
- Locate the elecrical, water and sewage hookups.
- Pull your RV in close to the hookups. Level it with the blocks or stabilizing jacks.
- If necessary secure your rig by chocking the wheels.
- Connect to the electrical hookup, switch your appliances to pull from this soure of power instead of the battery or propane.
- Attach your sewer hose to the drain hook-up. be sure to wear gloves for this process.
- Put out your awning and set up the campsite.
Pack a well-stocked tool kit. Add things that your RV might need, like extra fuses, light bulbs, jumper cables, nuts, bolts and connectors. In addition, be sure to bring parts that are unique to your rig. Without these, you risk having to wait for the part to be ordered and shipped.
Roof Maintenance – Inspect your roof at spring and fall for gaps and voids in the sealants. if you are not sure what to do call us for a free roof inspection.
Only use RV toilette paper. The standard bio degradable can cause clogs.
Know your propane level, be sure to check before you leave.
Take a first-aid kit. You never know when you might need something.
If you have a slide topper check for debris on top of slide before closing to prevent damage.
Always look ahead. If needed get out and look ahead of entry areas, parks, resorts to identify exit routes.
Instead of making a marinade with rosemary for grilling, place the herb right on the coals. The smoke enhances food in the same way burning wood chips does. Once the coals are uniformly gray and ashy, loosely cover them with fresh rosemary branches (be careful not to burn your hands). Almost any meat or vegetable will benefit from this savory smoking.
