      SouthParkSteve I love what you all have done with BW, and for the right market, it is a fantastic solution.  The ones I had looked at were Hipcamp and ParkmyBnB, but neither of those really address the market I am envisioning.  I'll have to check out the other...  more

      SouthParkSteve The person with the residential fridge who needs full hookups would not book the farmer's field, just like someone looking for a full service hotel would not book a room in someone's house on AirBnB.  It's actually a lot LESS complicated in the RV wo...  more

    Luis & Lupita Aguilar: Looking for a tip regarding summer travel in a Class A coach. Do most travelers run the roof AC unit(s) while going down the road (of course generator must be running) ?
    Or is it the engine AC enough to keep the coach cool in 95 degree-plus summer weather ?
    • Luis & Lupita Aguilar
      Hank & Shirleen Yes LarandSus, but  your genset burns less fuel then your engine does with the added load of the dash a/c

      RV Travel Yes, it's perfectly fine to run your A/C while rolling down the road. And your generator, too. As far as keeping your RV cool at 95 degrees, I guess that would depend on the size of your air conditioners, and if you were able to take advantage of any shade.

    • Luis & Lupita Aguilar
      Hank & Shirleen Also, one other thing. Most good genset repairmen will tell you to use it often and underload. Use it or lose it according to them. Minimum of 2 hours per week under load. What are you saving them for? The next buyer of your rig? You bought and paid for i...  more

    • Luis & Lupita Aguilar
      croscwa It depends on how much cooling you need, what the temperature and humidity are. Often, the engine AC is enough for us. Extra fans help too. But don't hesitate to use the roof A/C and generator!
