  1. We have a 2011 Big Country Fifth wheel, manufactured by Heartland. Our Eureka vacuum system shorted out and caused fire burning wiring harness. Has anyone experienced this?
  2. A typical RV travel day! We have some minor issues which remind us full time RV living is not always fun. Moving day in an RV is when you find out what is broken, or you actually break something else! In this video we are on the move again! With many states beginning to lift stay-at-home orders, more places are starting to open up so we decide to seek cooler weather. Finally leaving Flagstaff Arizona, we head north towards Page, Arizona and eventually make it to Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. We break our camera before we even take off but we make the best of it with fun stops along the way. We hope you like this video. Please don't forget to subscribe!
  3. We hit some trails while boondocking near Flagstaff, Arizona. Making sure to keep our distance from friends, we head to a nearby 4x4 trail and end up finding more than we thought! This is full time RV living at it's best! Once again we find ourselves in the snow, but that's OK with us! Being from sunny Southern California, snow is a welcomed occurrence! We also come across another giant pile of trash in the middle of the forest. Of course we couldn't just leave it there, so we load it up and take another load of trash to the dump! We hope you enjoy this video. Please be sure to subscribe.
  4. This is RV living on our Adventure Endeavor! Travel days are typically a fun day, but moving can be a bit stressful unless you plan ahead. We try to scout out camp locations, dump stations and cell signal. Planning is key to an easy RV moving day. Traveling is a lot of fun but certain parts can be stressful, so we try to skip the stress and do a little advanced homework when possible. This includes scouting out our new potential camp location. Check the road conditions, entries, and exits in boondocking locations. Make sure there is an easy(ish) plan for dumping and filling the rig. And of course check the cellular signals before arriving with the whole rig! We hope you enjoy this video and get some great value out of it! Don't forget to subscribe!
  5. LEAVE NO TRACE. Dispersed camping and RV living go hand in hand. We do our best to keep our public lands clean. Hopefully you find this video inspiring and share it with your friends. While boondocking just outside Flagstaff, Arizona we start to realize there are large amounts of trash dumped in the surrounding area. On a daily basis we pick up what we can and throw it away when we venture in to the local grocery store. But we find ourselves wanting to clean up even more so we contact the local ranger station to ask if we can bring in a big load of trash and use their dumpsters.
  6. Hiking in Sedona, AZ is just what we needed to get us out of the RV for a few hours. Fulltime RV living allows us to hike in incredible new locations. We are Adventure Endeavor, thanks for tuning in! While hunkering down near Flagstaff, Arizona we decide to head a bit South to warmer weather and go for a day hike. We decide on Mount Wilson because this trail offers unparalleled views of Sedona and the red rocks. It's a 10 mile out and back hike from Midgley Bridge. Thanks for coming along, we hope you enjoy this video. Don't forget to subscribe!
  7. RV solar! We finally installed solar panels on our toy hauler. Full time RV living is so much easier with solar. It's definitely not cheap but is a great investment, especially if you love boondocking.If you have been watching the channel for a while you know that we had a solar system installed on our last rig (Keystone Cougar). We swapped rigs over the summer and acquired a toy hauler with a built-in Cummins Onan 5500 generator. This has made it possible for us to boondock without solar and save up money for our full solar install. In the video we talk about lithium vs lead acid batteries, where we went to get the panels installed, and show you all the basics of our system. Hope you enjoy and please don't forget to SUBSCRIBE!

  9. RV Bike storage solution! Over the past year we have had our fair share of struggles with our bike's, keeping them secure and in good working condition. Obviously it makes sense to store the bikes in the toy box out of the weather. Wrapping them in furniture pads to keep them protected. Removing the front tires saving valuable space. Also showing you my new to me Specialized Camber mountain bike. Mountain biking is a sport that I am trying to get back into after a couple years off. I take the bike out for it's maiden voyage on a local trail in Southern California. Hope you enjoy the video and find some value! Thanks for watching.
  10. In this video we are sharing some knowledge. If you like to tow your 5th wheel or travel trailer and still off-road, prerun, or 4x4, this might be helpful! We install Daystar airbag cradles, this cool system allows your truck or SUV to have full suspension travel and still tow heavy loads. We had previously ripped out one of our airbags due to the airbag limiting our droop travel. Now that issue is solved and we can still tow heavy loads. If you have any questiong please let us know!
  11. This video is action packed! RV Living at it's finest, boondocking with friends, beautiful California desert and Prerunning. There's a little bit of everything in this one. We even break our truck! This video is about our journey to meet up with friends at their annual desert trip, Desert Palooza 2019. This event has been going strong for 15 years, out in Jawbone Canyon CA. Along with all of that we show your one of our tips for fueling up with a large rig, give a few more details on our Grill that so many people keep asking about and of course we take you along for the ride while we go desert prerunning. Hope you enjoy the video!
  12. Looking for a larger truck for that monster 5th wheel without spending $100k? This truck is a great starter truck and has a ton of potential for personal customization. Or, thinking of starting a Hot Shot business? Keep your start up costs low but have a truck that can do it all! The Good - 6 cylinder DT530 Turbo Diesel 65,000 Miles 2055 Hours 300 horsepower Allison 6 speed push button automatic with Economy setting Engine brake Air ride suspension Steel 22.5" white painted rims Beautiful Black Cherry Metallic Centramatic wheel balancers front and rear Air ride front seats Bench rear seat (not a Jack Knife bench) Air conditioning Cruise Control Tilt and Telescoping steering wheel Tinted windows Panasonic AM/FM/Cass./Weather Band stereo with 4 speakers Heated mirrors Engine Block heater Dual batteries (new) Chrome, roof mounted air horns with pull cord Fog lights Large duel side storage locking storage boxes Reese 5th wheel hitch with cover 9 Pin trailer plug Hitch catch box Heavy Duty rear trailer hitch receiver 26K GVMR Twin 50 gallon fuel tanks New LED tail lights 4 door Manual windows and locks Single axle dually Owners manuals Tires are 5 years old The Bad - Right rear door handle needs replaced. The spring broke so you can open it but it is tricky to shut. I have looked at replacing it and found it online for about $50 Driver's seat stitching has let go (see pictures) Flat bed and storage boxes are starting to rust. None of it is major and with a little TLC could be cleaned up and repainted. Left hand storage box is missing a lock tumbler. There are two locks on each box so it is still able to be locked. Dash circuit board has a weak solder and sometimes the dash instruments are dead. This happens mostly when it is cold and does come back to life. Dash button back lighting inoperative. I have external lighting on it now that plugs into the cigarette lighter. It is due a service (oil, fluids etc) We bought this rig in November of 2014 when we started our Full Timer life with our 43' Forest River Vengeance Touring toyhauler and put 13,000 miles on it over 4 years. Never had any mechanical issues (aside from what is listed above), starts up every time. Greater stopping power than 1 ton trucks and that helps save your trailer brakes! Hauls great. We have settled down, sold the trailer and ready to sell the truck. $35,000, no trades please. Clean South Dakota title in hand. Currently not registered. Located in Berthoud, Colorado Thanks for looking!
  13. After having issues with our 5th wheel contacting our trailer we starting looking into all options. The Andersen Ultimate Connection kept catching our eye, this hitch is lighter and stronger than ever! Weighing in at 35 lbs it makes the removal process simple and helps with our payload. With this installation I filmed as much detail as I could while also getting the job done. This hitch helps solve the problem short bed truck owners face, the base pushes the hitching point back 4 inches. Then when you install the coupler depending on your setup and configuration you can gain another 4 inches. We gained 8 inches of clearance, and that has been enough for us. Towing has been great! Let us know your thoughts!
  14. ✶✶✶IN THIS VIDEO✶✶✶ Well we got a new trailer and it's very large. Our first shake down trip didn't go quite as planned, we had many problems. We don't let that get us down, in Big Bear California for the weekend with friends. We do some boondocking near Big Bear. While we are in the area we head over to the Alpine Zoo! They help rehab injured animals and give homes to orphaned one's. 90% of the animals brought in are released back into their natural habitats. We also take some time to visit with a good friend that moved into the area many years ago. He bought a house and has been living his dream, fishing, hunting and snowboarding. Hope you enjoy the video, let us know your thoughts on the new rig and the problems that we encounter.
  15. We do a walk through of the Keystone Carbon 364 Toy Hauler (38' 3 slides). This is pretty significant for us because we have been looking into a new rig for awhile. There have been a few issues that have been adding up with our 2015 Keystone Cougar 313 ril and we thought our stay in our home town of Simi Valley would be a great time to take a look at new rigs. Here's a list of the issues we are having with our current rig. 1. Separate office space. 2. on board generator. 3. Fresh water capacity. 4. Good storage area for our bikes. 5. A place for quests to stay when visiting. 6.Being able to easily walk around the bed. There are a few others things that we have considered also, this is just a walk through. When RVing full-time smaller problems often seem as larger ones, so we figured we should address them as soon as possible. Also buying your first rig is extremely stressful and you can never find everything you want. Hope you enjoy the video!

  20. 2004 keystone cougar. Just recently our water pressure has been super low, hardly existent. We thought maybe it was frozen pipes, but we disconnected the pipe that goes into our 5th wheel and water came spurting out. When we turn the faucet on theres a quick spurt like we have good water pressure, then it goes to hardly coming out. We havent done anything differently. The only thing I can think of is I was moving stuff around in the under carriage and moved something up against the small tubes underneath. But I'm pretty sure the parts of the tubes it brushed against weren't valves that managed the pressure. What could be wrong and where is all the water going that's coming from the hose connection?
  21. Hi, we are thinking of downsizing from a 5th wheel to a short Class A or Class C. I was wondering do people actually trade rigs or should we plan on trading at a dealership? We have a 2008 Sunnybrook Titan 33CK-TS in great condition but my husband is physically disabled and is no longer comfortable setting up the rig. We no longer full time and rent a home. We would still like to travel and think a small motorhome would be perfect. Any opinions or thoughts? Has anyone gone through this dilemma?
  22. Is anyone in this group living full-time in a Toy Hauler? My wife and I have just started the planning to move to full-time in about a year. we are looking at trailers, and trucks to pull. Looking for some like minded people with experience to have conversations with on what they wished they knew before they sold the house and pulled out. Our goal is to full time for a year, looking for a new place to set down roots, then buy a new piece of property as a home base. We are looking at "Fuzion", but interested in peoples experiences with other brands as well. What do you wish you knew before you started.?
  23. Hi Everyone, I was curious what makes a trailer ' High End ' besides the cost. I am open to all comments. Positive or negative. How long in years does a high end trailer last ? More questions will come later. I choose this section because I was hoping to get the most comments as possible. Thank you for any input, Al
