MH Driving. Own RV Park?

Here are seven tips to help improve you improve your motorhome driving skills.

1. Know where your pivot point is and what it means. The pivot point is defined as the fixed point on a vehicle at which the vehicle rotates around in a turn. On a two-axle vehicle it is the center of the rear axle. This means that if an object, for example a tree, is located at the center of the rear axle or behind, you can turn toward the object and not hit it. If the object is ahead of the pivot point and you turn toward it, you will hit it.

Jay and I hooked up the used 12v. color TV to an antenna and converter box, but without the TV remote which would have had the ‘Menu’ on it, we couldn’t get to ‘set up’ or show channel 3, which is what we needed to make the converter box work.  I had until today to return it, so we did.  I’d be better off buying a new one! So I returned it.

We put some of yard sale stuff back in the storeroom attic.  Mostly really expensive ‘stuff’ that I didn’t want to donate, as I can eBay it.  We folded up 7 of the 8 tables in the RVport, so we are gradually making progress.  I was even able to park the van in there when we returned from the next town.

Again we loaded the van to gills, and took most of it to the Angelic Thrift shop for their church, but we only had three boxes ready to go to the Assistance League.  We looked around in both thrift shops but nothing caught our eyes.

Sunny in the mid 70’s,  no wind, and another lovely day.

I also enjoy the cat pictures.
