August 13, 2008

Last week I began a two-part series on travel comfort. This week, I offer the second group of tips to enhance your travel comfort.

  • Don’t let fatigue creep up on you. If you find yourself feeling run down, a good nap may be just what you need to restore your body and spirit.
  • If you depend on having your hair or nails done regularly on the road, you’ll probably get good results at well-known beauty salon chains in shopping malls. Or ask for recommendations at campground offices. Have your stylist at home write out any special instructions.
  • When you stay at a campground for several days running, you can stay hooked up to the sewer site and let the gray water run into it instead of into the RV’s holding tank. The result? A nice long shower without worrying that the tank will fill up and let gray water back up into the shower.
  • If you find the curtains in the bedroom don’t make the room dark enough, try hanging heavy towels over them until you get home and can fix the problem with heavier lining material or new curtains.
  • If you’re concerned that the dash air conditioner takes too much power away from the motor, use the auxiliary generator to run the overhead air conditioner instead.
  • Who knows what weather you’ll be traveling through today? Dress in layers so you can adjust to changing conditions.
  • If the RV’s propane furnace doesn’t keep your rig toasty warm enough when you’re parked at a site, try a small electric heater with a thermostat.
  • One of the great features about RV travel is that you can visit friends or relatives along the way and still sleep in your own bed-because it’s parked in the driveway.

I hope these tips on comfort when traveling by RV are helpful to you. Next week, we’ll look at getting and staying organized.

Enjoy RVing!
