Installing a propane accessory hose

Today we finally installed something we’ve been wanting for close to a year: a propane accessory “Tee” adapter and hose. Now that it’s done, we wish we hadn’t waited so long! Up until now, our portable Weber grill relied on 16 oz. disposable propane cylinders (pictured above). While these were relatively inexpensive (around $6 for...

Adjusting HWH Leveling Jacks

During our first few months living in Rover we realized that our auto-leveling jacks weren’t quite working as expected. Very few campsites we’ve been to (if any) are perfectly level, so the “auto level” function is supposed to extend each of the four corner jacks an appropriate amount, lifting Rover’s left, right, front, or back...

Adding a Swiveling TV Mount

Another RV upgrade we recently made was installing a swiveling TV mount for Rover’s main TV. We’re lucky that the living room TV in the Allegro 36LA is directly opposite the sofa, which is a much better placement than in most other RVs we’ve seen. Take a look at many RV floor plans and you’ll see that their TVs...

Adding RV Power Protection to Rover

One of the upgrades on our wish list since we purchased Rover was a full-featured RV power protection system. Every week or two we’re plugging into a different RV park or campground, and there’s no guarantee that they all have consistent and reliable power circuits. We’ve heard from RVers who have had systems in their...

A Change of Pace

Our last two weeks have been a little different than usual. Since we were back in Florida we decided to have our Tampa RV dealer, Lazydays, repair a bunch of little issues that have cropped up during our first six months. Rover has a one-year warranty so we’re about halfway through it. Fortunately we’ve had no...

Myrtle Beach by way of Augusta

Myrtle Beach

After Dragoncon we spent a week and a half in Augusta Georgia. It wasn’t on our list of places to visit, but it was a good halfway point (give or take) on our way to Myrtle Beach, which we were headed to for our first RV Rally. I’m both embarrassed and pleased to report that...

Our First Weigh-In

Above: Kathie standing next to a raw 24,000 lb. rated chassis. Just like humans (and dogs), RVs need to stay a healthy weight. In fact, if your RV is overweight, the consequences can be costly (chassis or axle damage) or deadly (decreased braking ability). Rover’s front axle is rated to carry a maximum of 9,000 lbs, his rear...

Replacing our kitchen faucet

Overall I’m very happy with Rover and all his amenities. We’ve been in our coach for a little over 2 months now and we’ve adjusted very well to living in an RV; however the kitchen faucet continued to drive me bonkers! The factory faucet is something out of the 80s, it’s short, close to the...
