Gypsy Journal RV: Got wood

From the bloggers at Gypsy Journal RV.

When you have been fulltiming as long as we have you pick up a trick or two along the way. One of them is to always carry a supply of wood. No, not for campfires. Fulltimers seldom have campfires. We are usually inside our homes at night, just like when we lived in a sticks and bricks house.

We always carry several pieces of 2×12 lumber about 24 inches long in our motorhome’s pass-through bay. They come in handy quite often when we have an RV site that is not level. Sometimes we put them under the leveling jacks, other times under the front tires if we have to raise the coach so high to be a level that they are off the ground. Having your tires hanging in the air is never a good thing!

Yes, they add some weight, but that’s why we have a diesel pusher. Although we also carried wood in our first motorhome, a gas rig, because it comes in handy all too often.

So when a friend came to our door yesterday asking if we had any wood, I assumed they needed help leveling. As it turned out, it was something else.
