Professor of RVing pulls off the road

I've written in the past about the importance of having an exit strategy for coming off the road from full-time RVing. That transition has arrived. Mrs. Professor and I have come off the road after five wonderful years of traveling the country making hundreds of new friends along the way. We purchased a home in Exeter, California with plenty of space for RV parking. We didn't want to come off the road, but we both have health issues that required the move. For my part, I am suffering from a severe case of psoriatic arthritis which makes it painful to walk and almost impossible to type. I'm receiving medical treatment and hoping for a wonder cure. If I can kick this disease, then I plan on doing more RVing. In the meantime my 40' Country Coach motorhome is parked next to the barn. Unless and until my arthritis pain goes away, I won't be contributing new RV articles to RVtravel.com. I would like to thank all my readers and especially Chuck Woodbury and his excellent staff at RVtravel.com for their support and encouragement over the years. Jim Twamley, Retired Professor of RVing

Clean RV window screens without water

To thoroughly clean my RV window screens I remove them and wash them with soap and water. If they are merely dusty, a micro fiber towel will do a great job without using water.Simply wipe the dry towel across the surface of the screen and it will pick up the dust. I couldn't believe how easy it was to clean the screens the first time I tried it. From this...to this, in only a matter of seconds.
You can pick up a 36 pack of these 16 x 16 inch towels for around $15.00 at COSTCO. Micro fiber towels are also available at auto parts stores, WalMart, Home Depot, Lowe's and many other outlets, but the best price I've found is at COSTCO. They are also great for washing and waxing, and general purpose cleanup. If you've discovered other uses for micro fiber towels please share it with us by leaving a comment.
