Fall is in the air! A great time to make some plans to enjoy the crisp, fall air. We are back with a new easy recipe, events around town, and RV tips.
An Easy Chili Recipe
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 15 ounce can of chili beans undrained
- 10 ounce Rotel tomatoes with diced chiles
- Cook ground beef in a 3 quart soup pot until no longer pink. Drain any extra grease. (Feel free to leave some behind for flavor).
- Stir the beans and diced tomatoes into the meat in the soup pot. Bring to a boil and then simmer for about 15-30 minutes. You could also combine in a crock pot and cook on low for 4-6 hours.

Fall RV Maintenance
Autumn has arrived, and winter won’t be too long after. It’s time to hunker down and get ready!
It’s important to give your rig the proper attention it needs before it gets too cold. After all, keeping up with your RV’s maintenance requirements helps ensure it’ll live a long, adventure-filled life, which will save you both money and the headache of dealing with service mechanics.
It’s also a good idea to check your RV’s tires for pressure and tread, as well as to give your RV’s fresh and wastewater-holding tanks a thorough cleaning.
First of all, remember that it’s called “fall” for a reason. A whole lot of leaves and debris are about to come tumbling from the sky, and ideally, you don’t want them landing on the roof of your rig!
Bird droppings, tree sap, twigs, branches, and even leaves can create a sticky and stubborn mess that’s difficult to clean up after it’s been sitting for a while. And when you do try to dislodge the goop from your RV’s roof, you can bring the finish off with it — which can actually contribute to roof damage and water leakage. No good!
Finally, keep in mind that if you’re planning to store your RV well into autumn or winter, you may face freezing temperatures…which means you do NOT want water in your holding tanks and pipes. Just like in a house, that water can freeze and expand, wrecking your RV’s delicate plumbing and causing a huge mess (and expense!) for you to deal with later.
