Our Story

Welcome to our site! We are Joanne & Steve. After 20+ years working for a city school department and police department, we sold almost everything, bought an RV, and started living on the road with our three children. Joanne homeschools and works online.
What we have chosen is to live life as unencumbered as we possibly can and to spend time with our family, for our family, and as a family.
This website is a record of our travels. But, we also hope to educate, entertain, and inform others about RVing, roadschooling, and the great places we visit in this country.

Take The Winterizing Pains Away with The Original Quick-Connect Blow Out Plug!

It's about that time!  Summer is over and cold temperatures are upon us.  If you are among the unlucky few that need to put the camper to bed for the season, then you will be winterizing your rig.

A quick snap of the air compressor hose onto the Winterize Manufacturing Blow Out Plug's quick connect, and you are ready to go.

Turn on the air compressor and allow the air to run through the lines, expelling the water...

until the lines are empty and dry.

Don't forget, water will remain in your showers' and sinks' fixtures, and in your toilets if you do not replace it with air.  This water can freeze and crack your fixtures.
