Fans and Dealers Enjoy Launch of Facebook Live, Onsite-Online Promotions from NERVDA Member Locations

Onsite-Onoline L

NERVDA recently launched a new service for their dealers and members, and it was a huge success on the first weekend when John DiPietro visited Major’s RV Service Center in Bourne, MA and Long View RV in Windsor Locks, CT during their Columbus Day promotions. Modeled after onsite radio and television appearances that we have all seen at car dealers, restaurants and other consumer events, DiPietro spends three hours at the NERVDA members company doing Facebook Live videos throughout the event. In the first two visits, he was able to produce 6 to 7 videos, usually on the hour and half-hour. John is a New England radio and television personality, in addition to his work as a sales and marketing […]

Good Times but what about that ‘Voltage Sag’?


We’ve held off purchasing outside cooking equipment so far for Lacey and we had run out of propane because we didn’t check to see if the frig had turned over to electric when we plugged in. So many lessons we’ve learned even in our short time (as of this writing 8 days total) on the road. SO, we couldn’t use the stove but I wanted to cook breakfast and decided to use our microwave to cook us up a nice big breakfast while Laurie and Kelly sipped coffee on the picnic table. This pic is from the afternoon before 😉 On the menu; bacon, potatoes, eggs, toast, fruit. Taking a bowl lined with paper towels I positioned the bacon and […]

Destination – Covered Bridges in New Hampshire

covered bridges

Two Gals and a Dog, along with friend, Kellie, RV’d to Swanzee, NH recently for this New Hampshire destination. We stayed at the Ashuelot River Campground, peaceful, quiet campground with new owners who are investing and improving. As of 2017, they write that “they have 6 new pull-through water/sewer/electric sites; 9 new riverside water/electric sites; a new bathroom and dish washing station at the north end; and we’ve remodeled the existing bath house!”  Everything was very clean. This video was taken on a Thursday. By Saturday, most of the lots were occupied. The only noise is the highway on the other side of the river, but you can’t see it and it’s not that bad. There are young maple trees on […]

It is Time for Winterizing your RV

winterizing your RV

Well it’s that time of year again in the NorthEast. The leaves are changing color, the nights are colder and Jack Frost will soon be finishing off what’s left of our vegetable and flower gardens minus the mums and the pumpkin patch. This is the time of year where the phone starts ringing at the dealership for winterizing. This is the process where we replace the water in our campers plumbing systems with non toxic anti-freeze to prevent pipes and mixing valves from bursting in freezing weather. Most people trust the RV dealer to use what’s best for their camper when servicing it, this includes the type of antifreeze the dealer uses. There are two types of non toxic antifreeze […]

Review of Sandy Pines Campground, Kennebunkport, Maine


Sandy Pines Campground was our first campground experience with Lacey and Cagney, so we don’t have a comparison, but I cannot imagine what else could be provided! This campground in Kennebunkport, Maine was opened very recently. The owners are accomplished in the fine hotel industry and have translated those skills to this campground. Laurie and I discovered Sandy Pines through our affiliation with NERVDA and Bob Zagami who reviewed the campground with owner Beth. Here’s a great video overview with Bob and Beth. Sandy Pines Campground offers several different site options, ranging from basic tent sites to pull through sites with full utilities and 50amp service for larger RVs. We saw many class A’s on spacious sites. The roads are wide and easily accessible for […]
