To me the term "RVing" always meant loading the RV and hitting the open road for another adventure in the RV. That changed a little when we purchased an RV lot on the NC coast last year.

For some readers April might be a little too soon for this, but for many other RV owners April signifies the start of another adventure packed camping season. When you prepped your RV for winter storage you most likely winterized the water system and performed some preventive and routine maintenance on other components like batteries, tires and the exterior. Now, after the RV sat in storage for a period of time we need to get it ready to hit the road again. This month's feature article will concentrate on some post-winter checks that I feel are essential to getting the RV ready for the road. ...
