- How to Keep out Heat and Sunlight – Keeping the heat out of the RV especially in these hot weather conditions is extremely important. You can start by cutting foil bubble material to fit your windows. The foil bubble materials will help reduce and reflect sunlight from entering and heating up the inside of your RV. This really comes in handy on hot summer days, especially if you have no tree or shade coverage. Additionally, this little tip also works well in the bedroom for keeping light out when you want to sleep.
- Understanding your Propane Level – This is a critical one! Propone is an incredibly important component for any RV and knowing how much propone is left in the tank is vitally important. One simple way to check this is to look at the tank bright and early in the morning. Where ever the dew stops on your tank is where your propane level is. Another niffy trick to determine the propone level is to pour a cup of boiling water down the side of the tank and watch where the condensation starts! Alternatively, another option is to weigh the tank. A full tank weights approximately thirty pounds plus the tank weight itself.
- When to Turn off the Plumbing – Why is it important to turn off the plumbing? Well for starters, if you are planning to leave your RV unattended for an extended period of time, just remember to turn off the plumbing! That’s not so hard? The reason we should turn off the plumbing is because in the event of some type of interior plumbing failure, this tip will help save you of untold amounts of cleanup and possibly an expensive repair bill under your name.
- Use a Water Splitter – Save yourself the trouble with a water splitter! It’s usually a good idea to use a splitter where the water goes into the RV. This will allow you to have an extra spigot for attaching a hose for such things as cleaning. Additionally, this tip will help make it easy to depressurize the water when it comes time to unhook it, thus saving you from being soaked in the process.
- Keep Your Showers Clean – Showers are known as the sanctuary of clean! If showers keep you clean, it’s only fair to keep it clean as well. After a showering session, use an absorbent cloth or towel to completely dry your shower stall after use, it will help prevent the growth of any molds and keep hard water stains from forming. It only takes a few extra minutes but it is more worth it in the end.
- Save Electricity with Solar Energy – No need to spend countless money on batteries when you got rechargeable solar energy at your disposal. Using the solar powered lights that you can easily pick up from any lawn and garden center can save you a lot of money and batter usage. You can charge your solar energy packs in the front yard during the day and use them after sundown.
- Make the Most of Small Spaces – Most RV’s have a lot of cabinet spaces! Which is great and all but it still leaves a lot of wasted space. However, if we installed wire baskets in strategic places such as behind cabinet doors and in the tops of cabinets, a lot of wasted space can be utilized. This’ll create more storage capacity and ultimately serve as help maintain a sense of organization.
- The Power of Corkboards Behind Cabinet Doors – Corkboards have always be associated with a sense of organization and beauty. This remains true even in a RV. Installing corkboards on the backs of your cabinet doors is a great way to pin and save recipes, instruction pages or little pieces of paper. It is a great reminder tool while on the road!
- Change your LED Lights to Power Saving – Make the energy saving switch to LED lights! Replacing normal incandescent bulbs LED’s can save exponential amounts of energy since most LED’s use only one-tenth the power of normal lightbulbs.
- Pack a First Aid Kit – Safety First! Understanding that when you’re traveling in an RV would mean that you are probably going to be miles away from a medical facility. In the event of a medical emergency, you need to make sure you are prepared for the worse. A first aid kit that has a variety of medical treatments will be extremely valuable for any RV traveler.
