PPL Motorhomes: Portable Satellite Can Keep You Entertained While RVing

Now, when we go RVing we really use that time to commune, not only with nature and my family, but with other RVers as well. After all, camping is about getting away from some of the usual traps at home, i.e. plopping down on the couch and zoning out in front of the TV. However, there are going to be times while out in your new or used RV that a little television is EXACTLY what you’d like to relax with. Of course one of the problems with that is getting a good signal…until now.

For all of you who just can’t wait to catch the latest episode of your favorite program, PPL Motorhomes has a Product that we know you will love: The Winegard Portable Satellite TV Dish

PPL Motorhomes: Monitor Your RV’s Tires to Prevent Failure

Tire failure in your New or used RV can happen at anytime and it’s almost always a result of under, or over inflated tires. If you’ve ever been in a situation where you’ve blown a tire on your rig, you know how scary it can be. You also know how frustrating it is to have to replace that tire on the road. Not only do you lose trip time, but it can be dangerous changing that tire out on the side of a busy highway or interstate. Even still, do you even have a usable spare?

What if there was a system in place that can monitor you tire pressure at all time and alert you if you are running at low pressure, whereby virtually eliminating tire pressure related flats?
