President's Message: A Family Of Friends Print Email
The breeze is just right on this late afternoon in mid-September, so I can make out the distant sound of bells coming from the little white church that’s nestled up against the mountain at the end of the valley. It’s times like this when I realize why I like the motorhome lifestyle so much.
Executive Director's Commentary: The Armchair Quarterback Print Email
I love the fall. With the leaves turning and a chill in the air, it is time to cheer on our favorite college and professional football teams.  I was hoarse for two days following a recent professional football game, the result of cheering the team on to victory.  I’m absolutely positive it was all the yelling I did that afternoon that pushed them to the win.

Dear RV Doctor:

We own a 1999 National RV Tropi-Cal motorhome. The gray water tank leaks when it reaches about two-thirds full. The tank was installed on the chassis over the gas tank. The floor and bathtub were then installed over the water tank. Because of this installation, there is no way to get to the gray water tank to repair it.

Battery Filling

RV batteries need regular service, and sometimes they are mounted in a location that makes it difficult to see into the cells to determine whether they need water. For years, I used a flashlight and a mirror attached to a stick, which wasn’t easy to do.
