This is what I always have packed in a convenient pouch in case “I just want to get out of this shit”. Just grab this, money, a jacket and a toothbrush and get the hell out of here.
Since I fucked up the last post on RV Tank Cleaning, I’ll try to correct that here and now. After 1 1/2 years of not using the RV I had to clean and disinfect the water tanks thoroughly and, while thinking I bought the product I used before, I actually got a different one. This was a little bit more complicated than the one used before, so I I’ll describe here how it worked:
Here’s my Top 10 Recipes that I cook really often and that I don’t even have to look up anymore. They’re all no-fuss, absolutely yummy and easy to cook. Give them a try and enjoy! Let’s start:
This is what I put together for personal use (american ⇒ metric). It’s pinned to my fridge wall and I use it often. You might find it interesting too.
Since I was an absolute beginner when it came to using a pressure cooker (and I somehow lost the manual…), I looked for instructions on the internet lately. Some were plain BS, some just dramatically told elementary stuff and left out the real instructions and, finally, some (especially the relevant forums!) were very informative. I threw everything together and tried it out (BTW – here’s a good article on what a pressure cooker actually does – I won’t describe the principles of pressure cooking here).

Since I’m not a native speaker and my days of english lessons in school have long been over, I’m doing it just plain wrong sooo often: Fu***ing Capital letters in english.
So here’s my standard recipe for curing meat that I mostly use. It can be adjusted to personal needs in terms of herbs and spices, but I strongly recommend to stick to the directions concerning the curing salt.
Recipe (per kg of meat):
30-40 g curing salt (rule of thumb: 3-4%)
10 g brown sugar
1 tsp. freshly and coarsely ground black pepper
1 tsp. dried rosemary
So I did finally manage to have my RV examined yesterday. Here’s my personal checklist that I always try to complete after the winter.
“Red on dead, red on donor. Black on donor, black on metal”.
Additionally, I strongly recommend a power pack like this one for your garage. It is small, practical, affordable and easy to store. And it can really save your sorry ass when you’re in a hurry.
Okay… since it’s January and I will definitely NOT need it in the next months, I finally updated my RV Packlist. Man, I’m SO looking forward to getting on the road again.
