RV Ready for Spring Yet?
Coming out of hibernation
It's been a long winter and the combined effects of the
elements can take a toll on stored RVs. If your coach has
been in storage, now's the time to prepare for those spring
getaways. Taking a little time now will help ensure
enjoyment all through the year.
Before hitting the road complete this RV spring-prep
checklist: Begin with a thorough exterior inspection.
Examine the outside, including the body and roof, for any
cracks or separation and look inside for stains on the
ceiling, sure signs of roof leaks. Look beneath the coach
and/or or tow vehicle for signs of fuel or other fluid
Once you've determined there are no exterior leaks, wash the
RV with a specially formulated soap designed for the
exterior. Work in the shade, since washing a hot surface can
result in hard-to-remove spots and streaks. Use specialized
wheel cleaners to make tires and trim look new.
An RV that's been stored all winter needs to be aired out.
Vacuum the carpet and clean the floors and other surfaces as
Spring prep should include a fluid and connections check.
Look for insect and rodent nests and chewed wires and hoses.
Check the amount of LP gas and test appliances for proper
Drain and flush the freshwater tank. Add 1/4 cup of
household bleach for each 15 gallons of capacity. Then fill
the tank almost to capacity, leaving room for sloshing.
Drive or tow the coach to mix the bleach. Run the hot water
to get the bleach through the water heater. Then drain the
freshwater tank. Refill, along with 1/4 of baking soda per
15 gallons. Drive or tow to mix the water, run the hot
water, then drain and refill with fresh water. Test the
water pump and water system, including the water heater.
On motor homes, generators and tow vehicles, change the oil
and filter and perform all recommended services according to
the owner's and maintenance manuals.
Batteries should be check for electrolyte level and
connections should be removed, cleaned and after
re-assembly, treated with an anticorrosive product.
Make sure all of the lug nuts are secure, check tires for
cracks and other damage and set inflation pressures.
Trailers should have the wheel bearings repacked.
Replace batteries and test smoke alarms and carbon monoxide
detectors. Check the gauges on fire extinguishers. Check and
refill your first aid and emergency kits. An emergency kit
should include: flares, a gas can, reflective triangles,
duct tape, jumper cables, wheel chocks, flashlight and basic
Stock up with necessities for cooking, cleaning and
entertaining. Review kitchen equipment and the inventory of
favorite games, books, cards, puzzles, CDs, DVDs or videos.

Save Money On Home Energy
spend more than necessary on home energy
costs. This is primarily due to wasted energy.
1. You can save as much hundreds of dollars a year on your
electricity. First, make certain that any new appliances you
purchase, especially air conditioners and furnaces, are
energy- efficient. Information on the energy efficiency of
most major appliances can be found on Energy Guide Labels
required by federal law.
2. Next, enrolling in load management programs and off-hour
rate programs offered by your electric utility may save you
up to $100 a year in electricity costs. Call your electric
utility for information about these cost-saving programs
A home energy audit can identify ways to save up to hundreds
of dollars a year on home heating (and air conditioning).
Ask your electric or gas utility if they can do this audit
for free or for a reasonable charge. If they cannot, ask
them to refer you to a qualified professional.

Money On Your Car
1. Since car rental rates can vary greatly, shop around for
the best basic rates. Ask about any additional (extra
driver, gas, drop-off fees) and special offers.
2. Rental car companies offer various insurance and waiver
options. Check with your automobile insurance agent and
credit card company in advance to avoid duplicating any
coverage you may already have.
1. You can save thousands of dollars over the lifetime of a
car by selecting a model that combines a low purchase price
with low financing, insurance, gasoline, maintenance, and
repair costs. Ask your local librarian for new car guides
that contain this information.
2. Having selected a model, you can save hundreds of dollars
by comparison shopping. Call at least five dealers for price
quotes and let each know that you are calling others.
3. Remember there is no "cooling off" period on new car
sales.Once you have signed a contract, you are obligated
to buy the car.
1. Before buying any used car:
the seller's asking price with the average retail
price in a "bluebook" or other guide to car prices found at
many libraries, banks, and credit unions.
Have a mechanic you trust check the car, especially if the
car is sold "as is."
2. Consider purchasing a used car from an individual you
know and trust. They are more likely than other sellers to
charge a lower price and point out any problems
with the car.
Consumers lose billions of dollars each year on unneeded or
poorly done car repairs. The most important step that you
can take to save money on these repairs is to find a
honest mechanic. Before you need repairs, look for a
A. is certified and well established;
B. has done good work for someone you know.
C. communicates well about repair options and costs.

Thirty Gas Saving Tips
The surest way you can improve your fuel cost
problem is to
change your motoring habits. Listed below under four
categories are 30 effective methods of doing so... no need
to buy expensive add-on equipment.
1. Avoid prolonged warming up of engine, even on
cold mornings - 30 to 45 seconds is plenty of time.
2. Be sure the automatic choke is disengaged after engine
warm up... chokes often get stuck, resulting in bad gas/air
3. Don't start and stop engine needlessly. Idling your
engine for one minute consumes the gas amount equivalent to
when you start the engine.
4. Avoid "revving" the engine, especially just before you
switch the engine off; this wastes fuel needlessly and
washes oil down from the inside cylinder walls, owing to
loss of oil pressure.
5. Eliminate jack-rabbit starts. Accelerate slowly when
starting from dead stop. Don't push pedal down more than
1/4 of the total foot travel. This allows carburetor to
function at peak efficiency.
HOW TO BUY GASOLINE
6. Buy gasoline during coolest time of day - early morning
or late evening is best. During these times gasoline is
densest. Keep in mind - gas pumps measure volumes of
gasoline, not densities of fuel concentration. You are
charged according to "volume of measurement".
7. Choose type and brand of gasoline carefully. Certain
brands provide you with greater economy because of better
quality. Use the brands which "seem" most beneficial.
8. Avoid filling gas tank to top. Overfilling results in
sloshing over and out of tank. Never fill gas tank past the
first "click" of fuel nozzle, if nozzle is automatic.
HOW TO DRIVE ECONOMICALLY
9. Exceeding 40 mph forces your auto to overcome
tremendous wind resistance.
10. Never exceed legal speed limit. Primarily they are set
for your traveling safety, however better gas efficiency
occurs. Traveling at 55 mph give you up to 21% better
mileage when compared to former legal speed limits of 65 mph
and 70 mph.
11. Traveling at fast rates in low gears can consume up to
45% more fuel than is needed.
12. Manual shift driven cars allow you to change to highest
gear as soon as possible, thereby letting you save gas if
you "nurse it along". However, if you cause the engine to
"bog down", premature wearing of engine parts occurs.
13. Keep windows closed when traveling at highway speeds.
Open windows cause air drag, reducing your mileage by 10%.
14. Drive steadily. Slowing down or speeding up wastes fuel.
Also avoid tailgating - the driver in front of you is
unpredictable. Not only is it unsafe, but if affects your
economy, if he slows down unexpectedly.
15.Think ahead when approaching hills. If you accelerate, do
it before you reach the hill, not while you're on it.
16. Do not rest left foot on floor board pedals while
The slightest pressure puts "mechanical drag" on components,
wearing them down prematurely. This "dragging" also demands
additional fuel usage.
17. Avoid rough roads whenever possible, because dirt or
gravel rob you of up to 30% of your gas mileage.
18. Use alternate roads when safer, shorter, straighter.
Compare traveling distance differences - remember that
corners, curves and lane jumping requires extra gas. The
shortest distance between two points is always straight.
19. Stoplights are usually timed for your motoring
advantage. By traveling steadily at the legal speed limit
you boost your chances of having the "green light" all the
20. Automatic transmissions should be allowed to cool down
when your car is idling at a standstill, e.g. railroad
crossings, long traffic lights, etc. Place gear into neutral
position. This reduces transmission strain and allows
transmission to cool.
21. Park car so that you can later begin to travel in
gear; avoid reverse gear maneuvers to save gas.
22. Regular tune-ups ensure best economy; check owner's
manual for recommended maintenance intervals. Special
attention should be given to maintaining clean air
filters... diminished air flow increases gas waste.
23. Inspect suspension and chassis parts for occasional
misalignment. Bent wheels, axles, bad shocks, broken
springs, etc. create engine drag and are unsafe at high
24. Remove snow tires during good weather seasons; traveling
on deep tire tread really robs fuel!
25. Inflate all tires to maximum limit. Each tire should be
periodically spun, balanced and checked for out-of-round.
When shopping for new tires, get large diameter tires for
rear wheels. Radial designs are the recognized fuel-savers;
check manufacturer's specifications for maximum tire
26. Remove vinyl tops - they cause air drag. Rough surfaces
disturb otherwise smooth air flow around a car's body. Bear
in mind when buying new cars that a fancy sun roof helps
disturb smooth air flow (and mileage).
27. Auto air conditioners can reduce fuel economy by 10% to
20%. Heater fan, power windows and seats increase engine
load; the more load on your engine, the less miles per
28. Remove excess weight from trunk or inside of car - extra
tires, back seats, unnecessary heavy parts. Extra weight
reduces mileage, especially when driving up inclines.
29. Car pools reduce travel monotony and gas expense - all
riders chip in to help you buy. Conversation helps to keep
the driver alert. Pooling also reduces traffic congestion,
gives the driver easier maneuverability and greater "steady
speed" economy. For best results, distribute passenger
weight evenly throughout car.
30. During cold weather watch for icicles frozen to car
frame. Up to 100 lbs. can be quickly accumulated! Unremoved
snow and ice cause tremendous wind resistance. Warm water
thrown on (or hosed on) will eliminate it fast.
Install pressure regulator valve (sold in auto parts
stores)... Use graphite motor oil... Beware of oil
additives, regardless of advertising claims... Add Marvel
Mystery Oil into gas
fill-ups... Investigate fuel/water injection methods and
products... combine short errands into one trip... Use
special gas additives to prevent winter freezing of gas
lines... convert your V8 engine over to a V4 - no special
