RV NEWBIE First Day In Travel Trailer | Lake Tahoe, California



RV NEWBIE First Day of RV Life | Lake Tahoe, California

As RV beginners, we decided to take our Coleman travel trailer north and start our trip close to home in Lake Tahoe.

From our first time backing in our trailer, hitching and unhitching, hooking up the water, sewage, and electricity…there is a lot to learn! Our first day RVing wasn’t without a few RV mistakes and mishaps and I was so glad Olivia chose to take the black and grey water upon herself!

Stay tuned to follow our journey as RV Newbies! The plan is to do a big loop through Northern California before heading down to Yosemite National Park.

Nathan does a ridiculous amount of research on every place we travel (he geeks out on it and loves to find the “best of the best,” esp. local favorites that are more hard to find), he always saves his notes in a spreadsheet, and uses it to help family plan trips.

OUR STORY
Hey! We’re Olivia and Nathan 👋🏽 A couple from California.

We met back in 2014 in Monterey, California. I (Olivia) was a senior in college & Nathan had recently moved back to the area after living in Italy.

After a few “deep life talks” (ones that were so foreign to me) and hearing about the lifestyle Nathan had been creating for himself for the last 6 years, I wanted to spend more time with him.

We started dating and I learned how he’d moved to Cambodia when he was 17, Germany when he was 18, Italy when he was 20, and was itching to travel again.

I was fascinated and wondered HOW THE HELL DID THIS GUY PAY FOR ALL OF THAT? IS HE A DRUG DEALER?

Nathan would work in California for 2 years, save every dollar he could, move abroad, find a job in that country, live there for 1-2 years and then do it all over again. Each time, he’d learn the language of that country, acquire new skills & make lifelong friends.

I was deeply inspired & wanted to travel with him. After 1 year of working our butts off and saving every dollar we could, we moved to Australia. We lived + worked there for 3 years (learned to speak perfect Australian lol) & created online jobs so we could continue traveling full-time.

CURRENTLY: When covid hit, we flew home and bought an RV to travel the US. That’s what we’re currently doing now, and boy is it a LEARNING CURVE but also thrilling!

Down to earth, entertaining, and informative is our goal — we want you to feel like you’re experiencing the day with us.

Welcome to ON World Travel 🤙🏽

    good job guys. Although. Very important to keep your sewage hose and freshwater hose separate. Best to keep your fresh water supply hose in closed tub/container , and far away from your sewer hose. Any contamination is no good. Be safe out there. Oh and congratulations on the backing without getting a divorce in the process.

    Have yall calculated how many MPG's your getting while towing? I'm just curious because I'm looking for trailer but I'm kinda on the fence about going to big for fueling purposes. It would be super annoying having to stop for gas all the time.

    lol pisser, you need heat pads for the tanks and water heated hose for cold weather camping. Not sure if your camper's belly has a cover to close out the entire bottom- i would suggest to get one on there. Stops critters from calling your camper home keeps camper warmer from cold wind running below. But if you were to winter camp often, I'd invest in a skirt. I mean thats if you remain some where below freezing temps for a few days often enough.

    A suggestion: be careful talking with other campers while setting up or especially taking down! Learn from one of my mistakes..talking caused me to not double/triple check around before pulling out..oops forgot to lift one stabilizer..realized very quickly. Safe travels

    Looks great. I've seen it recommended to use a water filter between shore water and your RV to help prevent mineral build ups in the water system.

    I've been out of RVing for 20+ years but this is what we used to do. When in a site with water and sewer, we would not be hooked up all the time. We would fill our water tank and run off of that so no outside hose to freeze. On the sewer, we would use our tanks and then empty when we were leaving. That was mainly not for freezing but rather for making sure the tank empties correctly. If you keep you hose attached and open, the liquids will trickle out but the solids can accumulate in either the tank or the hose. We preferred to let it fill the tank and then flush all at once. This cleans the tank and the hose better. Hope that makes sense.
