5 Tips to Reduce RV CONDENSATION. (Save this!) πŸ’§ It’s that time of year again and you may start to notice window fogging and wetness in your RV as the temperatures drop. 🚌 RVs don’t have great insulation and when the temperatures get in the 50s or less, dampness can start to be a problem. 😳This can lead to mold especially around/under mattresses and in the closet. πŸ“Here are some tips to stay dry: 1️⃣ Use roof vent fans when cooking or showering to pull the moisture outside. 2️⃣ Consider using a space heater to help heat and dry at the same time. Propane heat produces more moisture in the RV. 3️⃣ Install a mesh breathable underlay like Hypervent or Den Dry under your mattresses to prevent moisture buildup. Using a waterproof mattress cover can also help prevent moisture. 4️⃣ Leave closet doors open. 5️⃣ Get a dehumidifier. β˜‚ I hope this helps you stay dry this winter! β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” 🚐 Our family has RVed full-time for 7 years across 42 states.

Back in 2015 when we began RV living, there wasn’t many families or working age people RVing FT. 😒 We had no support in wanting to live this lifestyle. Family all thought we were damaging our daughter for doing this. πŸ€ͺ Pretty much everyone we knew thought we went nuts. But you know what? πŸ‘‰πŸ’― This dream was placed on our hearts, not theirs. ‼️ We all have one precious life to live. It’s up to us to live it in whatever way we feel led, and not the way we are β€œsupposed to” live. ❓Do you feel like you are led to live differently or be something different than what society says you should? What’s the dream put in your heart? β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” 🚐 Our family has RVed full-time for 7 years across 42 states.

Tips to see Florida’s WILD MONKEYS at Silver Springs State Park. πŸ’ Today there are around 400 wild monkeys living along the Silver Springs River. (See our Reel from yesterday for the crazy story of how they got here!) 🐡 Even though there are quite a few, they are tough to find sometimes. Here are a few tips! 1️⃣ Look for tree movements. - It can be hard to see the monkeys but watching for shaking tree limb movement is the best way to spot them. 🌲 2️⃣ Paddle the Silver River. - Sometimes they can be spotted up near the state park, but they are spotted more often farther down river. - You can put your kayak in at the state park launch and take it out downstream at Ray Wayside Park. - This is a GORGEOUS easy 3-4 hour paddle. πŸ›Ά 3️⃣ Look inside the state park near the Sea Hunt dock or along the Ross Allen Boardwalk. - They aren’t as common in the state park but we found them along the boardwalk at dusk. πŸ₯Ύ We really enjoyed looking for the monkeys. I hope you find them on your next visit! ❓Have you ever seen the Silver Springs monkeys?

Wild monkeys in Florida??? Yes, and it is a crazy story! πŸ’¦ The Silver River has always been a huge tourist attraction due to the beautiful crystal clear springs that feed it. 🐡 A tour boat operator over 100 years ago thought it would be neat to order monkeys to place on a small island in the Silver River as part of the tour. πŸŠβ€β™‚οΈ The problem? The rhesis macaque monkeys he ordered could swim! πŸ’ The monkeys spread out along the Silver River and multiplied to about 400 monkeys living in the area today. Monkey sightings are hit or miss, but we got really lucky and saw them at Silver Springs State Park. πŸ“Our post tomorrow will have tips on how to see the monkeys! ❓Have you ever seen the Silver Springs monkeys?

I sometimes see full-time RVers sharing what this lifestyle costs which is such helpful information! πŸ‘β€οΈ But I often see something really IMPORTANT and EXPENSIVE accidentally left out: RV repairs and maintenance. ‼️ πŸ’― Honestly, there are a lot of unexpected expenses that pop up monthly. It’s best to have a budget category for repairs, maintenance, or unexpected expenses. I promise you will be glad you have this in your budget so you aren’t blind sided. πŸ‘‰ It helps to look at FT RVer budgets over a longer time period to get a feel for unexpected expenses.

πŸ’― There is never a boring day RV traveling. This day will never be forgotten! A service engine light on the truck turned into the Chevy dealership pulling out a huge black snake that got caught up in the fan belt. 🐍 Now that is something you don’t see everyday! The wild thing is that we weren’t even camping in the woods. We were at an urban KOA right next to the interstate.πŸ˜‚ I actually felt terrible for the poor snake. ❓Do you love all the crazy things you see and have happen while traveling?

Where is the best place to paddle in Florida? πŸ›Ά Our favorite is Silver Springs State Park. 🐠 It has a dedicated paddle trail with no motorized boats. The crystal clear water feels like you are in an aquarium with tons of turtles, fish, and also a few alligators sunning on the shore.😬 πŸ“Œ Other great paddle locations in Florida are: 1️⃣ Mangroves of the Everglades 2️⃣ Intracoastal Waterway near the Jupiter Inlet 3️⃣ Kings Landing ❓Have you been paddling in Florida?
