Tips and Tricks - keeping bears away and other things 
If you're rving or camping in a bear infested area keep a compressed air horn within reach of your entrance door. It will scare the bear off.

Drain your hot water tank when winterizing your rig. If you don't it will freeze and crack at its weakest point.

This is a tip I hope you all find helpful.

LED replacement bulbs for 12volt light fixtures will never drain your battery set ups and will never burn out. they are a little expensive, but twice as bright, each bulb costs about 19 bucks. http://www.ledlight.com/detail.aspx?ID=128

Never drain your battery?? Anything 12V will drain your battery.

Bears will tend to wander into your camping site only if you leave food around that's within their smell and reach. That's why many parks have food lockers.

So far, haven't really had any problems with bears during my camping, but I'll keep that in mind.

Not to mention waking all the neighbors. Hahahaha!

So far we've haven't had a problem with bears camping. Just make sure that you don't leave your food lying around or else they'll definitely come.
