1/25/2020 Update: We renewed our warranty this month!!! We can have peace of mind for another 3 years! We have been so happy with Wholesale Warranties, the service and the coverage that we also purchased a 3-year warranty with them on our tow car at the end of 2019. What I didn't realize or think about is when pricing a warranty, it is based on the model year of your RV so on January 1st your RV is another year older. So, you'll save on your warranty price by purchasing it before year-end. Get your quote today at Wholesale Warranties! All you have to do for a quote is fill out a form.

In early 2020 our washing machine quit! I am happy to say it was covered by our warranty including taking out the window to get the washing machine in! The only issue is the washing machine has many more "bells & whistles" to learn and my dryer is "old".

As full-timers since 2009, we’ve experienced a lot of what it takes to live the RV life. Unfortunately, one of the less fun experiences every RVer will inevitably face is suffering a mechanical breakdown while traveling. Whether the repair needed is large or small, a few things are always true: RV breakdowns are disruptive, frustrating, and costly.

Many times, someone living in an RV full time has gone through the process of getting rid of many of the items they had accumulated during their lifetime. In an RV they don't have a lot of storage and they don't have a lot of storage and they don't have a lot of room for knick-knacks.

Granbury Texas - Last spring as we were working our way to Dallas for a meeting I had we found that the Brazos River Authority oversees Lake Granbury where there are a few free boondocking opportunities.
In the spring of 2019 we were making our way from the Alfa Owners Club Rally in Fredericksburg Texas to Mineral Wells to watch my grandson drift and then we had a couple weeks before I had to be at a meeting in Dallas. In our search to find a place to stay we found Lake Granbury less than an hour away.
Lake Granbury is operated by the Brazos River Authority which was created by the Texas Legislature in 1929 as the first government entity in the United States specifically for the purpose of developing and managing the water resources of an entire river basin. (History Lesson if you travel with children.) Today, the BRA water supply system includes 11 reservoirs scattered across the 42,000-square-mile river basin. Three of the man-made lakes were built, and are owned and operated, by the BRA. The other eight are owned and operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The BRA reservoir system includes: Possum Kingdom Lake, Lake Granbury and Lake Limestone. All three lakes have some type of primitive camping. (no hook-ups). The parks do have restrooms.
