FULL TIME RV LIVING 3 MONTH UPDATE (EP 13)

FULL TIME RV LIVING 3 MONTH UPDATE (EP 13)

November 1, 2019 16 By William Morgan


Ah, it’s been quiet of three months
Been full-time RV and for three months now
Yeah, Josh, it seems like it’s been so much longer than three months it really does it’s yes I think back to when we
left the house
the day before Thanksgiving
This is it. We’re saying goodbye to our house. It’s Thanksgiving. Yeah, that was a crazy time
Yes, so we’ve been
Three months full time RV now, so we’re pros
We learned about everyday
Challenges
I
Think I’ve adapted to that now
Adapt to the lack of space in the bathroom maybe
Get used to it
Work with it. This is all we have for our vanity. Are we been having an issue with her?
tankless water heater
That had issues ever since we purchased it from the dealer. So that’s been a challenge
Is the very first challenge we’ve had in the last three months was the dolly
we didn’t know anything about dollies and
Apparently the dealership their help didn’t either and they were trying to help us and a lot of things fold up on it
Well, they didn’t get the ramps
Secured dolly part camp up and it caught the front bumper and ripped two holes through it. So that was our first issue
Second issue have well, actually there was a first issue with the dolly before that in a way that the dolly strap came off
and it was flopping around we
we luckily have this rear view camera and
I could see the car starting this way and it always was going straight
So it pulled over and sure enough the strap game off and it bounced up and hit the car and you cinch down really tight
came loose
Came up
Scratch the car a little bit
but trailers brand new scrapped everything and it
And then the second dolly issue would be once we arrived in now on one hand, Palm Springs
so if you had some of these some horrifying stories on your first
trip
Don’t feel bad. So there’s repairs that we have done. They have a couple of repairs you need to do, but we’re holding off because
We feel extremely strongly that the dealership should be take care of them because it’s something that their PD artists take care of
I wasn’t able to get on the roof when we bought this in your
Chris don’t call me. We have three days to find a coach. So we were told that they did take care of the remaining
Three weeks what he said three days, and we did we had three days
Once three weeks since the owner. Yeah, but then when we decided we weren’t gonna go with the fifth-wheel
Oh, we were gonna go with the fifth go first. Oh then we have three days. It was a last-minute thing. Yeah
So the roof was supposed to be taken care of
They’re supposed to go around with dike or any of the cracks of that little bit of time passed on me and I got up
On the roof and it sealed all the cracks
Cracks are everywhere on every single
Seal there is on that roof, and it was extremely obvious that they were old
Check with someone else within the company and yeah, they didn’t touch that. There’s no way
Once we got to another location and there was a place on the roof. It was really soft off this big
Driver side window replaced it was foggy when we first bought it and they ordered the window
But it took several weeks get ends of water pump
yes and got in you hooked everything up and we were inside and everything and
Went back outside and there’s water yeah, there’s a pond there was a pond on the ground
I mean, it hadn’t even been very long. Yes. I called the NRF and asked if they could stock it with the fish
long story short when you have your city water hooked up and you see water pouring out underneath
It’s coming out of your overflow. And what’s happening is instead of going to your faucets
its bypassing somehow and going directly to your fresh tank filling that fresh tank that you use when you go
boondocking
And it got so full that it was overflowing going out the overflow underneath
so two things either the valve that you switch over when you want to feel the
fresh tank on purpose
And if that’s not it then it’s your water pump
The water pumps can go bad and the valve inside the water pump cuz bad and allows the water to back up a person
feels the fresh pink instead so replace that it wasn’t easy to get to but it was actually a pretty
Thick I called around to see if we can get fixed guy came and told me oh, oh, oh that’s that pump is expensive
It’s asking how much 300 some dollars this time. He didn’t know it but I already knew how much it would cost
I was testing you can order it on Home Depot the exact same pump literally same model number everything for 50 bucks
And I saw the Amazon we could get it there too. So I just ordered a 50 bucks and did it myself. So the
Water heater. It’s a precision temp water heater. It also heats your coach
well runs off electric and propane and it’s
It’s a tankless kind of like an aqua hot except it doesn’t use a diesel fuel
That had some issues and that happens to be where we are now at the dealership
getting those things finally taken care of like a week before we could get the service done and we
spent at least eight days showering at the RV park which
Your shower was better than my shower. Let’s just put it that way
For some reason the men’s restroom was better than the women’s and then TV I replaced the TV
That was my choice. There was nothing wrong with it. It was just an old TV and it got really hot and
Behind the cabinet it got really hot from it
Yury strong at least three lines the core
And to window blinds are very large. So there’s a lot of feeling that they do and
He’s the year the Guru of the blind restreamer completed blinds. I don’t know how to do it
Well so far they’re working
That’s the downfall of the pleated blinds strings
The things that we have enjoyed so the most enjoyable thing is here in the comments feedback from people
Questions and start to realize there’s other people out there that have always thought about doing this and want to know
What to do you know, how do you do this? I’ve enjoyed
Working with of you looking my job with a view of palm trees outside of the window
Sometimes the views aren’t all that great if you’re staring at another RV, yeah
Wait, so in first three minutes, we’ve been to two rallies. Yeah, I’ve been to
FMC a was the first one and that was in Indio, California
which is really only about
Okay, it’s right there in the Coachella Valley it was just kind of what they call their small rally I guess
We only we just drove our car there
So we were only there one day and of course again our first rally we didn’t know what to expect. So there’s
Vendors galore in this huge building and we’re just like going we don’t have enough time
We should only come two days. At least you probably know what Michelle really likes besides the coconut cream pie
They also had three. Oh
my gosh
Free ice cream. Yeah
Yeah. Yeah, we stood in a long line for them. And then the other rally was the quartzite
19 quartzite sports vacation in RV show and that’s a very very very large
large
RV show quartzite, they put on a lot of what?
Other types of shows they’re like rock mineral shows. They have three markets there. I think they kind of have them if they’re quiet
frequently, but the large vacation sports an RV show is in this one time of year and
they say you know like
tons of people tons of RVs come for this movies ten days when we got started one of our first
Youtube creators that we started watching was there at the same time. Yeah
Yeah, enjoying the journey dot life we met up with them, I’m sure you had a really good time chatting with them
So that that really made that
The trip. Yeah Wow, very nice couple
Again that was another one that we just drove our car to because it was only a couple hours from where regrets yeah
So another thing I thought we would talk about a lot of people that are not full-time our beers yet you may wonder
Like Christmas, you know what you do?
So what we did we got on Amazon?
And we ordered a bunch of things and it’s kind of nice because you can get some things that aren’t even at
Walmart, or wherever your local stores and
And they actually wrapped up. It was really cool and just
Send it right to their address and just say don’t open till Christmas. Yeah, and and then we did FaceTime
Yeah
Kind of fun to watch your open up. Yes
Brendan and Sarah as well. It’s nice. Of course. It’s not the same as being right there. It’s pretty
To have the technology days to do that
Um, let’s see Church. If you go to church we
Really loved our church
Back in Weston. Why not? No, they had a church service. Yeah, I streamed
A lot of times we couldn’t make it we would just watch at home then no now we can still watch it
Yeah, everywhere we go a lot of the RV parks so far that we found of a church
Service come in on Sunday, or they’ll just give you you know, a tip of going to a local church
right
We had a neighbor of ours were staying there that was going to a church there in Palm Springs
And we kept driving by it before we talked to them
They were going to that so, of course you got churches you can go to but if you’re partial to your own, hopefully they have
the online
Service as well after Christmas
We went to a New Year’s Eve party, which is probably we talked about it
It was by far our favorite New Year’s Eve party that not ever been to
When we were in this Thomas previous area and it was at the spa resort
there’s a casino in Palm Springs and it was an 80s rock in the theme and
of course, I was a little chilly that night and everything was outside of their casino for this and
The tickets were fairly cheap a lot. There. They were like, is it $10? I think so when they had a life bang
Yeah, and they had a lot. Well, they had a deejay up until the live band started at 9:00, but
The deejay or she wasn’t really good we were like no he was playing all
Had fireworks and everything at midnight
As you can tell from a lot of our videos we’ve been to quite a few destinations
The tram and Palm Springs or did the indian canyons. I did talk about canyons and did these living doesn’t zoom?
like we decided we’re going to try to spend more time in each area so that we can
Be better prepared to give advice in southern california’s really where we started
After our maiden voyage we went to california. We spent a lot of time in there Palm Springs area and
our intentions is to
Spend a lot of time in each area
Because we don’t feel that we can go somewhere and give a give good advice
If we really haven’t spent a lot of time in that area
We can go to like burial tramway and show you our experience there like we did in other places
But as far as the area
wanna we want to be in my
area so that we can give good advice about each area that we spend around the United States, Alaska and
Everywhere we go. We’ve seen a
Lot of full-timers. Yeah and family full-timers
Kids got invited to a Super Bowl party
With a big group of full time families, they have their own group, and it’s called full time families
the time that we’ve been there
downtown Palm Springs every Thursday night
Starting at about 6:00
I think goes from 6:00 to 10:00 is their village fest and one Street and maybe a few off the side of
vendors
Food and they have music playing
It’s nice to get out and wander through that. We’ve seen a large like a marathon race
Yeah, Oh
Tour de Paume spree. Yeah tour to Palm Springs went on and we’ve seen well, of course, we’ve tried several restaurants
Again, I’m going to mention my favorite
Sherman’s deli and bakery. I’m telling you you’ve got to go there. There’s two locations Palm Desert and Palm Springs. Try them both
They have the best coconut cream pie how many times I have to mention this coconut cream pie
I mean sandwiches this high salad so large
We share
this high and large
and of course I have to leave room for by so and so we’ve also
Several Mexican restaurants and good
We found a new
Best ever we got service
Yeah, a lot of people might say, you know, well, you know
You have such a small cooking area or whatever and what do you do for your?
your meals you
Just try to stay on your same nutrition diet. It’s hard when there’s pie, but guess where we’re going
McDonald’s, no
Taco Bell no
Del Taco, no
Wendy’s what do I like the most in the Coachella Valley?
Besides me to eat for food
What do I like the most?
I’m driving. Do I know where I’m going? I hope so
Do you like the most in the Coachella Valley? What do I talk about all the time? Medjool dates? No
The hummingbirds
Dare eat a hummingbird. How dare you? Okay, yeah
Coconut
Candy bars coconut cream pie Sherman’s deli
We’re going there for supper. We’re gonna have you’re gonna have coconut cream pie for supper if I can. Yeah
Sherman’s has gluten-free bread for all those that cannot have wheat or gluten. Oh and they’re
Good
Sandwiches this big. Yeah, we can share a sandwich cuz they’re so they’re huge. Yeah, plus your side that you
Share that. Yeah, we’re full cuz then if we share there’s room for pie
But she eats he gets a couple bites. I gotta come over tonight suffer the consequences
Not excited at all. Can you tell
But I will admit Brian is our cook or chef very very good card
But I don’t cook. It’s just that he’s like it’s good. He likes to cook and I’m like, okay. Yeah
Oh, he’s a very good cook
He’s good at just making stuff up and I’m more of a I’ll follow recipe
Yeah, I measure things the Italian like it. Yeah
Sometimes we do pretty good during the week though, I mean
Fix has our meals and we try
Try really hard to stay
Okay, no low carb is very hard, yeah, if you do know that coconut cream pies
Well, then there’s cheetah days, you know cheap days
right
You can that cream pie. Yeah, okay, and hopefully we’ll share some more recipes for ya. Those low carbs out there
We’ve got some pretty good ones. We got we still have a few keto recipes that we use but um,
Not really on a keto diet anymore. We just try to stay
We have four data plans right now she has one for her work that is through her company
She has her own personal one. She uses we’ve did some research on and it’s called visible. It’s through
Horizon you get unlimited data truly unlimited and the speeds are limited at five megabytes per
Second which has been plenty. We can actually watch YouTube videos. Of course, you can’t watch it in a high quality
Anything over?
480 or 720 p but we don’t have that now we use our hotspot through Verizon
You don’t have to sign a contract or anything. It’s just
Monthly pay five months and it’s forty dollars. It does limit you to
Some areas where you get cell service, but you still get those yeah in there
we’ve we’ve traveled from Texas to California in California to
Nevada and there was only one little spot
I’m gonna say probably
Another thing we should mention is working. How do we work? I have to have more of a
Designated desk area because I use two monitors for my work
No half to I can just work off of a laptop but my particular work
It is a lot easier to use two monitors on our traveling days. I’ve worked from a laptop
She sits here at the dinner desk and I rotate from chair over by the TV
One of those left top corners. Yeah
And then I come to the kitchen table where I’m like two feet from her
And then every once in a while in one of these chairs just to change it up a little bit
It’s kind of funny though because sometimes a little you work in yet. Does it last Friday or something?
Like hours went by and we hadn’t even talked to each other
So focus and ingrained in our work is like like two feet from each other and we haven’t said a word for hours
Time flies. I mean I I have an a
dedicated
Schedule that I have to abide by
So, it’s Monday through Friday. I work 40 hours and
Brian works that Plus
And really it’s only the weekends that we have to be able to go
Sightsee, yeah, do whatever you need to get even then we’re trying to do. That’s when we take all of our footage. Yeah
so kind of working then to
Actually, but it’s more enjoyable yeah because we work so much how to stay focus no
Flexible like because we sit so much
It’s really hard once you’re focused and ingrained in your work and you’re busy and time is flying by and it’s been like
Three hours and you realize you having stood up
That’s probably one of the biggest downfalls I’d say is because we we both are the same type
we’ll just keep working and working and working and not so we’re trying to get better at that whether it’s just
One person standing up and then saying to the other one. Okay, come on, you know like let’s stand up for a little bit
Let’s you know do some
Exercises get the blood flowing in I guess you could say that’s a challenge really is to try to stay
Trying to stay healthy with our lifestyle from the weekends
exercise
You know, I know
It’s hard to do a lot of outdoor activities can wintertime it’s too cold. Nobody wants to be outside much
Summertime, it’s muggy
Or when the temperatures noisy the windy and all over are the humidity is really high
So there’s very few times when I mean a perfect. That’s how we we just
didn’t careful the weather’s I
Don’t know that was a squirrel moment
That being said as far as working, I’m sure a lot of people have questions about working
Is it hard to work from the home or when you’re in those views?
Is it hard to work when you got all that going on?
Yeah, it may be hard. But if your
Medications ernight both are very dedicated
We we can’t start something without finishing balance the three months that seemed like it went quickly
But yet it seems like it’s been longer. I don’t know. Is that possible it went fast, but yeah, it seems longer
So if anybody has any questions that we haven’t cover there, please by all means
Make a comment down below in the comments section and wolf will answer you as soon as we can
the main purpose of doing this is to
Help others. We were inspired by other YouTube creators
