Cool grilling selections: Spicing up cold-weather cookouts and tailgating.

Seems these days, America’s love for cooking is exploding. And the art of grilling taking on a life of its own. Instead of just unpacking some patties or dogs and throwing them on the barbie, consider some enhancements to up your grill game.

If you have a gas grill, you can still enhance it by using a charcoal tray. Place it over the top of your burners, fill with charcoal and let it heat up for a new flavor experience. You might even want to add mesquite wood chips for a decidedly southwest flavor. Not enough smoke? Consider getting a smoker to infuse your larger portions of meat with that succulent flavor. And, did you know smokers aren’t just for meat anymore? Side dishes like baked beans, mashed potatoes, soups and even desserts can be enhanced with a smoker. Definitely worth a look to make your RV the envy of the park or parking lot on game day!

Brushing off the cold: Tips for beating the weather in your Fleetwood.

Maybe the warmer weather has convinced you to stay out longer in the cold weather, or maybe you're one those indomitable souls who relishes the challenge of cold weather camping. Either way, make sure you're prepping you and your Fleetwood for winter family action.

Build in extra time for warm up and allow for careful driving to your destination. Slippery roads and hasty pace make a bad combination. Also, before you set off, check tire pressures! Every ten-degree drop can result in 1-2 pounds of pressure loss. Have a front-end cover? You need one if you want the front of your Fleetwood protected from salt and sand spray of winter driving.

And when it comes to winter gear for you, definitely overpack with heavy boots, coats, gloves and hats. Now's also a great time schedule your Holiday Rambler for service and a complete checkup at your local dealer, or at one of our REV Service Centers!

Refresher Course: Hot tea varieties are the spice of life.

A hot cup of tea in the right moment always hits the spot, so to speak. So, speaking of tea, here’s a rundown on some popular varieties.

Black tea: the standard of teas; a pantry staple with universal appeal
Herbal tea: an earthy substitute that is an alternative to black tea
White tea: delicate and sweet, white tea is often high in antioxidants and low in caffeine
Green tea: light and energizing, green tea also has antioxidants and is often blended with ginseng or guarana for an extra boost.
Medicinal: often derived from slippery elm and licorice root, these varieties are famous for their ability to coat sore throats and calm upset stomachs.

Trending tea: Matcha tea is a finely ground powder of green tea leaves, traditionally consumed in East Asia. Lately, it’s been becoming popular here, too. If you haven’t yet tried matcha, it’s brewing in a lot of places!
