Tech & Travel Tips: August 2003 Print Email
My husband and I don't rely on hand signals to help us park the motorhome. Instead, we use a pair of personal two-way radios.

It is written that James A. Garfield may have been the best prepared candidate to seek the office of president of the United States.
Technical Inquiries: August 2003 Print Email
Thank you for the responses you forwarded to us regarding the shaking problem we experienced in our Holiday Rambler Vacationer ("Vibrating Vacationer," March 2003, page 32). We took the motorhome to a Ford garage and a mechanic there was able to identify and fix the problem.
Readers’ Forum: August 2003 Print Email
Dear Editor:
One of your readers showed me a copy of the March 2003 issue of Family Motor Coaching. My grandfather's RV predates the RV pictured on page 24, in the "Readers' Forum" column, by about 14 years, and I wanted to share a photo of it.
The bashful young lady to the left of her mother is my mother, Barbara, at the age of 6.
Roughing It Easily Print Email
These easy-to-make and delicious dishes will keep you out of the galley as summer really heats up.
Chinese Crockpot Chicken
This recipe from Wendy Louise’s The Complete Crockpot Cookbook ($16, Champion Press) is a festival of flavor that requires little work. If you don’t have a slow cooker, put it in a roasting bag in the oven (see label directions, which call for the addition of a tablespoon of flour) or follow the directions for a three-pound chicken when using your microwave-convection oven in the combination mode.
One 3-pound chicken
1/4-cup soy sauce
1/4-cup orange marmalade
2 tablespoons ketchup
6 cloves garlic, pressed
1 onion, sliced
Salt, pepper to taste
Place the chicken in the slow cooker.
Fire Safety Print Email
While preparing for a trip some years back, my wife, Saraine, was driving our sport-utility vehicle to the grocery store to load up on supplies when she thought she smelled gasoline. When she jumped out and opened the hood to check, she discovered a fire in the engine compartment.
Having been a school bus driver for years, she had received fire safety training and knew exactly what to do.

The Quad-Loader from Hitch Things is described as a "revolutionary new way to haul an ATV." It also is said to be ideal for hauling lawn tractors, golf carts, and even go-carts. The Quad-Loader features adjustable platform tracks to fit any width ATV; a powder-coated finish; lights; aluminum diamond-plate ramps; and a stowage compartment for the ramps.
The Risk Management Committee Print Email
FMCA president Jeff Jefcoat, F118344, has said on many occasions that if a person wants to learn the operation of FMCA, he or she should be a member of the Risk Management Committee. When Jeff was the national vice president from the Eastern Area, he spent three years on this committee and still attends all of our meetings.
Lemon Juice: The Traveler’s Aid Print Email
Since we don’t have a huge motorhome, we try to carry multiple-use products as much as possible. Lemon juice certainly fits our requirements.
