Make PERFECT corn on the cob every time - NUKE IT in your microwave oven! No shucking & no silk mess. Whether you live in an RV (like us) or a house, the corn microwaving trick rocks!

Leave the corn right in the husk... no need to shuck it. You only need to trim the end off if the ears are too big to fit in the microwave. Each ear takes four minutes on high power, so we set our microwave to 12 minutes for 3 ears. When they're done cooking they'll be steaming hot, so be sure to use oven mitts to avoid getting burned.

Using a sharp knife cut off the large end of the ear. Even though you'll lose a row or two of kernels, you want to cut above the point where the stalk connects to the cob. Then grab the husk at the small end and squeeze the ear of corn out the other side.

Microwaving works like a charm and will leave your corn perfectly cooked and virtually silk-free every time!

The intro music is my own piano performance of Scott Joplin's Maple Leaf Rag from 1899.

RV Geeks offers basic DIY (do it yourself) RV service, repair, maintenance and travel tips from full-time RVers who have been handling most of their own maintenance since hitting the road in 2003.

Be sure to confirm that all methods and materials used are compatible with your particular recreational vehicle. Every type of motorhome, motorcoach, fifth wheel, travel trailer, bus conversion, camper and toy hauler is different, so your systems may not be the same as ours.

While we're not RV technicians, we're very mechanically inclined and have learned a lot about RV systems over the years. We handle most of our own minor service, maintenance and repair work on our 2005 43' Newmar Mountain Aire diesel pusher. We also maintained our 2002 39' Fleetwood Bounder Diesel during our first two years on the road.

We meet lots of newer RVers who are eager to learn some basics about maintaining and caring for their rigs. After more than 10 years on the road, we want to share what we've learned (some of it the hard way). ;-)

We hope our experiences can help other RVers go DIY, saving some time, money and effort, while experiencing the satisfaction of a job well done.

We do not pretend to be experts on any particular RV topic, and mostly know about maintaining our own rig. But lots of things are the same on RVs in general, and diesel pushers in particular.

Comments welcome! Thanks for watching!
