Carolina In The Morning

Carolina In The Morning

That would be Carolina any time. South Carolina, cool summer mornings with a cup of hot coffee & the sounds of the many native birds start your day off with a melody of songs.
The sounds of the still undisturbed lake laping gently at the docks, an early morning fisherman waves as he glides by ready to catch the first fish of the day.

The jet skis not yet breaking the silence, but soon the lake will be filled with boats, wave runners and jet skis, laughing people enjoying Lake Greenwood. Moon Landing RV Park & Marina nestled lake front in Cross Hill SC is getting ready for the influx of summer campers and lake enthusiasts.

There will be a steady stream of rv’ers, boaters,& fisherman in and out of the campstore buying live bait, gas, picnic supplies, & some staking their claim on a campsite and boat slip for their vacation.
Time away from time clocks traffic, and must "dos" . Waking up early is a choice for a few days, they don’t want to waste one minute of a day filled with sun, water and fun.
Campfires light up the night and smells of burgers, and barbeque fill the air. Soon the park will be slient as the tired campers rest up for tommorrow and dreaming of what it would be like to live like this all the time. Some people turn that dream into reality. Staking their claim to a life of freedom, giving up large living spaces and small territories for small spaces and unlimited territories. Watching the vacationers come and go the full timers settle back knowing that this is the way life should be. There’s always time for another cup of coffee and always another day to enjoy the lake, their way, any day.

Life couldn’t be any finer than in Carolina especially when it is spent with friendly people, great weather, and beautiful Lake Greenwood at Moon Landing RV Park & Marina in Cross Hill SC.

Life is good.

We’ll see you soon!

Greener Battery System Installed in New Liberty Coach Triple Slide

(Stuart, Fl and Chicago, IL) — Liberty Coach, a leader in the motor coach conversion industry for more than 40 years, has announced the introduction of a new eco-friendly battery system.

The newest Liberty Coach Prevost H3-45 Triple Slide-out now features brand new, environmentally friendly battery technology with the introduction of a lithium iron phosphate battery system. The advantages of the traditional lithium-ion battery coupled with the safety features of phosphates, makes the lithium iron phosphate battery the technology of the future. This new system uses a non-toxic disposable battery that has a much longer lifecycle than the older battery system. Also, because fewer of these new batteries are required to power the various on-board electronics and other systems in a triple-slide coach, there is a tremendous weight savings as well.

“By changing to the new lithium iron phosphate battery technology, we were able to eliminate 1,150 pounds of total weight from our H3-45 Triple-Slide model,” said Frank Konigseder, vice president of Liberty Coach. “Additionally, whereas the older batteries typically would last about three years, these new batteries have on average a 10-year life cycle.”

While Liberty Coach is very happy with the performance and environmental benefits of this new system, going green doesn’t necessarily come cheap. The lithium iron phosphate battery system has a higher price tag than the previous battery system. However, some of this additional cost is offset by the battery’s increased life expectancy which also helps save money when getting a coach ready for resale.

Many high-end motor coach owners trade in their coaches every two or three years. Up to now, when a coach was being made ready for resale, typically the batteries were one of the first things to be replaced. This new system may change all that.

With this new system, all batteries communicate on a proprietary network which continuously monitors each battery cell. The status is displayed on an output monitor that enables Liberty Coach to utilize the generator automatic starting system more efficiently by controlling the start/stop of the generator based exclusively on amp hour usage.

“The history of each battery is maintained in a non-volatile log which can be retrieved at any time,” Konigseder explained. “This may eliminate the need to replace batteries on used coaches in the future since we now have an accurate way to determine the need based upon the actual usage of the batteries in each coach.”

This system is now being installed on all Triple Slide H3-45 models. By mid-summer, the company anticipates installing it in the double-slide models as well which will save 500 pounds of total weight in those coaches.

Liberty Coach continually researches and tests new systems, materials and components to make sure the most reliable, user-friendly, and technologically advanced systems are being utilized in their coaches. For more information about Liberty Coach go to or call (800) 554-9877.

5 Tips for Organizing Your RV for an Uncluttered Trip

Space as we all know is a premium commodity in all RVs. You might look at pictures on other blogs or on Pinterest and get a pang of jealousy at how clean, organized and spacious they look. However, bear in mind that these pictures are not a reflect of real world RVs, I challenge anyone to prove it otherwise.

Despite the space constraints, it doesn’t mean you can’t be clever about the organization in your RV.

We’ve pulled together 5 simple and we hope clever tips that should help you keep your RV better organized.

1.Think Geometrically

Most RVs are full of straight lines and 90-degree angles. No matter where you look, you’re likely to rectangles and squares, cupboards, slides and work surfaces are all square shaped.

Rather than trying to force a round peg in a square hole, embrace it and learn to utilize square storage.

You can buy square plates and bowls, and you can even take it to the next level switching to boxed goods rather than round. You can even buy square frying pans.

Once you’ve replaced your round items for square you should be pleasantly surprised at how well everything now fits in your cupboards and how much more space you now have. It’s a small change that can have a significant impact.

2. Go Vertical

Your RV is full of unused wall space so why not utilize it to its full extent and store whatever accessories you need in your RV in out of the way spaces.

You can quite easily hang additional shelving in order to store lightweight items such as kitchen utensils, vegetables and fruit. Space is a commodity, so you may need to think creatively to maximize what you already have.

Most RVs have plenty of areas that contain dead space, most often above cabinets, above doors and next to slide outs. If you’re able to add a shelf or a cabinet to these areas you may find you’ve increased your storage capacity by a huge amount.

You can use hooks to hang items in high out the way spaces, if you’re not going to be using the broom for a few days, hang up somewhere using hooks to keep it out of the way.

3. Stacking and Nesting

There are a ton of clever storage items you can buy online, from collapsible colanders, to stackable and folding storage boxes, all of these can help you utilise your RVs space better.

At heart I like to reuse and recycle items, I prefer not to replace things that I have unless I absolutely have to. However, when it comes to my RV, I prefer to make an exception.

One of the best ways we’ve found of increasing the available storage space is by replacing larger bulkier items with the equivalent stacking or folding option. I would strongly suggest that you check online for items that can collapse flat or can nest together (insert your amazon affiliate link here).

When it comes to choice of stackable items, there are quite a number of options to pick from. From pots, pans and bowls, to bins and clothes racks, if you can think it, chances are there’s a more compact, folding or stacking option available.

4. Chuck the Waste

I think we’re now more than ever aware of how much waste we produce as a species. If you buy a weeks supplies of groceries and unpack everything, you’ll quickly find that there’s almost as much packaging as there is produce. This is not only a problem for the planet but it’s a problem when you have limited space in an RV.

To help combat the space hogging effects of packaging try and shop for loose items or products with minimal packaging. If you make a concsiese effort to reduce your reliance on packaging, you might be surprised at how much extra space you’ll get in your RV.

Another way to free up space is to combine half empty boxes into one airtight container. For example, if you like biscuits or crackers, why not store all the types in one single container. The same goes for pasta, mixing a few half full boxes of pasta into one container is a great way to save space. The mixed pasta is great for making soups.

5. Don’t Use The Floor For Storage

When we first got our RV I thought it would be a great idea if we used the floor as an extension of the storage space, to that end I went out and bought storage boxes to fill up with all the things I thought we’d need. The problem is, the floor is meant for walking on, and if you have things in your way, it quickly becomes tiresome.

Within a couple of days of having these storage boxes blocking my way I was going crazy, they looked bad, they made the place seem messy and there were constantly in the way. I couldn’t handle it for more than 3 days before I decided I needed to do something.

In the end I moved the storage boxes into the shower for the duration of our trip and it instantly made the place look much better and much bigger. I would never make that mistake again.

I now have a rule, if I can’t fit something into the storage we already have, then it’s simply getting left behind. It’s surprising how much stuff you don’t need when you go away. Chances are if you don’t have it with you, you won’t miss it.

This obviously doesn’t apply to essentials such as weather appropriate clothing, first aid, tools etc, but do you really need those trousers that you haven’t worn in 12 months?
