RV Newbies, Water Bypass System and Maintaining your RV Roof

Meet Newbie Full-Timers John and Paula Adams

Michelle and Laurie met John and Paula Adams at a Harvest Host location in Christiansburg, West Virginia.

While sharing wine and chatting the night before at the Whitebarrel Winery (part of the network), John and Paula said they’d love to share their story with us!

John and Paula describe themselves as lifelong boaters who are now beginning to explore the land! With true adventuring spirit,  John and Paula hiked the Appalachian Trail, all 2,190 miles of it, last April. 

After that experience they realized how little they really needed to live and how much they wanted to continue the adventure.

So they retired and, through a friend, found a pristine older RV, a 1999 28 ft Class A Dynamax Isata Touring Sedan. With their new home on wheels, they then sold their home and began their full-time RVing journey! When asked if they were going to continue Full-Timing, their answer was, ‘Absolutely!’

Hear their story and see additional video content on as they chat about their Harvest Hosts experience.

How to Maintain your RV Roof

Next up, Michelle and Laurie take their Lance 1575 way up North to Vermontville, NY. Why? There was a small leak somewhere on their RV roof. Since their 1575 has a non-weight bearing roof, they didn’t want to damage it.

They just didn’t have the confidence to try and fix it themselves. Max Nason, Sales Manager at Happy Camping RV Sales, shows us, and the girls, how to get up on, inspect and recaulk where needed. Now, they feel confident they can maintain their RV roof properly and we hope it gives you that confidence as well.

Water Heater Bypass System

Understanding your water heater bypass system in your RV is important, especially during cold weather to prevent damage to your hot water heater.

The Water Heater Bypass System will make a lot more sense after watching this video segment by Mark Polk of RV Education 101.
