RE: formaldehyde smell

A new trailer we bought a few years ago had the same problem, in our case we pinpointed the problem to the Chinese made mattress giving off the formaldehyde smell. The trailer manufacturer (Jayco Australia) denied there was a problem so we just ditched the mattress and bought a locally made one and the problem was solved.

RE: Michelin Agilis CrossClimate Tires LT

I had them on my Class C and they gave a harsh ride and didn't wear well unlike other Michies I'd had in the past. I replaced them with Continental Contivans and they gave a better ride. Just my experience.

RE: RV Life unexpectedly comes to a sudden end!

I should add that we weren't full-timers but did travel around for five months each year. I knew we'd have to slow up or quit one day but I'd naively assumed that the "when" would be more planned. Full-timers can learn from us and ensure that you have Plan B ready to go just in case. Had we not had a home to go to immediately after my wife took ill we would have been in a real pickle. We follow a lot of RVers on youtube and that gives us a lot of continuing enjoyment... we're out there with you in spirit.

RV Life unexpectedly comes to a sudden end!

Here's our story of what happened to us three months back... being in Australia we travel north for our winter months, we had left Melbourne some six weeks previously and were in the outback boondocking near the town of Longreach Queensland when our motorhome started displaying transmission and other erroneous errors, then a few days later we lost reverse gear so now we knew that things were serious. While we were trying to deal with motorhome transmission problems my wife became quite ill, I thought it was stress related but it later proved to be a previously undiagnosed serious condition. Anyhow, the nearest service workshop for our motorhome was some 600 miles east at Bundaberg, a city on the Queensland coast, so we headed off hoping we could get there without needing reverse gear or worse yet have a complete breakdown. On the way to the service centre we had a blowout while going through the mountains and were stranded on a dangerous curve for a few hours until roadside assist could get to us. Continuing on and during an overnight stop we had a heavy rainstorm where we discovered a serious roof leak that flooded the interior. We reached Bundaberg the next day and spent two weeks in an apartment during which time we had the RV fixed and my wife got medical treatment. What an adventure this turned out to be, for we had been RVing for 17 years and up until now never had really any serious problems then they all came at once. After getting things sorted out in Bundaberg we drove 1,700 miles home where we realised that after 17 great years, this was the end of RV life for us and with sadness we sold our Class C motorhome. No regrets however as we met so many great people and experienced so much during our retirement years (we are aged 76 and 75). So there's a lesson here for all in the RV community, and you don't need me to spell it out.
