RV Experiences and Memorable Meals on the Road - Vol 3

  • Bedding and linens are an important constituent of your on board inventory. You will need several sets of sheets and pillow cases, a good mattress cover, at least 4 pillows for you and at least 2 guests and I recommend 2 sleeping bags for guests, assuming that you can sleep at least 4. Sleeping bags are so much easier to deal with than sheets and can be used outside if weather permits, so include a good quality ground cloth, for those occasions. An electric blanket and or comforters and extra blankets can usually be stored under the bed in the master bedroom.
  • Towels for kitchen and bath, bath mat and of course toilet paper. Now you must NEVER use 2 ply toilet paper in the RV septic system. Use only 1 ply, however you do not need to buy the expensive RV toilet paper, they sell in RV stores. We find that the 1 ply paper, that is readily available in any grocery store, works just fine and is half the cost. It is important that you indoctrinate your children and guests, to use only the 1 ply paper provided and not to put ANYTHING else into your holding tank. Of course, using a biodegradable holding tank deodorizer is recommended.
  • Water is another important subject. Many chose to sanitize their fresh water holding tank, which is a time-consuming pain to me. We choose to not worry about the holding tank water, as we do not dry camp very much and usually have good water hookups, at the RV parks that we visit. We do drain and refill the tank several times a year and use the holding tank water only for toilet, showers and dish washing, if we do not have city water available. We carry one of those large dispensers, available at most grocery stores, for coffee and drinking water. We also have a good counter top water filter, so that we can use the holding tank water if necessary. We also use it to fill our coffee maker, even when on city water, to remove the chlorine taste.
  • Well, I believe we have covered the basics on outfitting of your RV. I would only add, again, that you should keep a log book to record things that you need to add to your on board inventory and things that you can remove - always remember your weight limitations and don't accumulate too much "stuff". We can now move on some of the fun stuff associated with the RV lifestyle - the enjoyment of great food.
  • The New Orleans School of Cooking was founded in 1980, to demonstrate basic Creole techniques and share their favorite cooking tips. Creole cooking is born of Indian, French, Spanish and African food cultures and it combined the best of each culture, with what they found to cook with locally. The result is totally unique in the world and guaranteed to tweak your culinary palette. Classes at the school are held Monday through Saturday and tours are available. If you visit New Orleans, I highly recommend attending one of their classes. They are located in the Jackson Brewery, on Decatur St. and their attitude is "Let the Good Times Roll".

Jackie and her husband Whit have over 40 years of camping and RV experience. Future articles will commence with some of our memorable experiences on the road and some of the many culinary delights that we got to enjoy. Some of the recipes from the New Orleans School of Cooking will be featured on Cooking with Jackie L, as soon as this article is published.
