The goal is the same for all rv's even if your system is different. You should never lift the wheels off the ground. The jacks were not built to support the coach weight. It is dangerous!

Recreational vehicle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Recreational vehicle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A recreational vehicle ( RV) is, in North America, the usual term for a motor vehicle or trailer equipped with living space and amenities found in a home. Several definitions exist for RVs and vary by region, including " caravan", " camper van" and " motorhome", but are also used to designate different types of vehicles outside North America, hence "RV" is preferred.

Marianne Riddile's insight:

This is a pretty decent source of RV terminology.

Woman Accused of Defacing National Parks: Paintings 'Criminal,' National Park Service Says - weather.com

Woman Accused of Defacing National Parks: Paintings 'Criminal,' National Park Service Says - weather.com | Motorhome Madness | Scoop.it
Casey Nocket has been accused of leaving graffiti in national parks. Here's her defense for why she does it.
Marianne Riddile's insight:

I cannot believe the selfish mentality of this woman. If you see someone defacing our beautiful parks, please confront them.  I witnessed an adult male scratching his name into a fence barrier in a park in Colorado.  His wife was just standing there watching him and he was there with his two teenaged kids. I did not hesitate to confront him and tell him that he should "be ashamed" of himself and the example he was setting for his kids.  I seriously could not believe that I was witnessing such an action.  Pathetic.

Visit the sawmill that was run by a wizard and his satanic imps... purportedly @roadtrippers.com

Visit the sawmill that was run by a wizard and his satanic imps... purportedly @roadtrippers.com | Motorhome Madness | Scoop.it

Mill Pond in Easton, Massachusetts is a weird place. According to pretty much anyone who visits, they have one heck of a fishin' pond, but it's the story that surrounds the body of water that's the really interesting part…

Just across the street from the Easton Cemetery is a mysterious sign that was erected by the Easton Conservation Commission in 1999. The sign marks the spot of an old sawmill built by a local man named John Selee in the 18th century and reads as follows:

'Site of the sawmill built by John Selee in the 18th century and continued by his son, Nathan, a wizard who purportedly used satanic imps to run the mill at night.'

 
Marianne Riddile's insight:

Now-a-days, said imps are called "Merry Maids" and they arrive in a white Prius full of cleaning supplies. --Come on down!

Have seen 2 brown spiders in the bays of my coach in the past couple of days.  Thought it might be a brown recluse.  Killed the first one quickly but got a photo of the second.  It is not a brown recluse because it has striped legs.  This site was very helpful.
