…About Fulltime RVing.

We’ve just passed our first month of living in our Airstream fulltime. In that short time, we’ve really put our one and a half years of RVing knowledge to the test. Don’t get me wrong – we’re loving our new life. It’s exactly what we were looking for, and in many ways, it far exceeds our expectations. It’s just that there are a few small things we wish someone would have explained in more detail. Things like how to avoid mildew, and how to use a Fantastic Fan properly.

We like to look at life as one big learning experience. You know, the old “what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger” school of thought. Obviously Tiffani and I are both very inquisitive and experience driven people or else we probably wouldn’t be living in an RV. Even coming into this with our eyes wide open and months of preparations, we continue to find new things to confound and challenge us every day.

That’s one reason we’ve decided to start writing some of the stuff down in this series called “Things They Don’t Tell You.”  We really weren’t expecting someone to tell us everything, but there are certainly some gotchas that every new RVer should at least think about beyond the basics. There’s only so many Airforums.com posts you can read before you have to just go out and give it a try!

Another reason for starting this series is to help beginning RVers out there who may skim over the manuals and go right into the “hardcore” difficulty level as we did. Hopefully they can find resolutions here, or maybe they’ll feel better knowing they’re not alone in their rookie mistakes.

As always, Let us know what you think.
