Chris Guld of Geeks on Tour explains the how’s and why’s of boosting your computer’s Wi-Fi connection with an external adapter antenna.

4. Cost Effective Weekend RV Fun: Sometimes spending your weekend at home is just plain boring. There really isn’t much to do, but on the other hand you don’t have much of time before the weekend is over and it’s back to work again. How about a weekend RV getaway close to home? Mark Polk shares how a quick RV trip can not only help alleviate the boredom, but it is cost effective too. A 200 mile, or less, round trip from home won’t cost much in fuel, food or campground fees and it might be just what the doctor ordered for some well deserved relaxation and time to recharge.

    Have you had any items on how best to revive badly oxidized fiber glass and decaying decals on MHs?

  2. Gus,

    I recommend you look through the RV Doctor columns here on the blog and if you don’t see anything helpful there, you can write to The RV Doctor, Gary Bunzer, to see what he recommends for refurbishing fiber glass and decals.

    Best of luck!

    Just went to the Madison Wi Rv show. A lot of dealers and a lot of nice campers of all kinds, but no vendors (generators, water filters, accessories. Funny, Camping World just opened nearby and they didn’t have a thing. I was disappointed at Alburqueqe Nm Ralley that the amount of vendors wern’t there. That’s were I saw the Fantisic Fan. That’s were I got intersted in the new Level Guages for water(all fresh black and gray. If they don’t show it you are not going to buy it. Simple as that
