Best RV Gadgets to Have to Prepare for Winter

Some people put up their RVs in the winter; however, some like RVing in the winter even better than the summer. With all of the ski slopes and other winter activities, RVing can save you a ton of money. However, RVing in the winter is a different animal. You’ll want to ensure you have everything you need, including anything needed for winter travel and living.

Snow and Ice Clearing

You’ll need a couple of things for snow and ice clearing. A straw broom is great for whisking snow off the steps and away from the propane tank cover. An ice scraper is great for getting ice of the truck’s windows or off the windows of a motorized RV. This way, you’re not relying on your defroster to do all the work, and it gets you on the road quicker.

Hot Water Tank Bypass

If you are the type that puts your RV up for the winter, you’ll need to completely empty your tanks, including the fresh water tank. Or, you can purchase a hot water tank bypass to use in winterizing your RV. This is a good idea even though you might take your RV out during the winter. Water left in pipes will freeze and could cause the pipes to burst if the RV isn’t being heated constantly.

Black Tank Pump

If your RV doesn’t have a built-in black tank pump, you can purchase an add-on and have it installed. Instead of taking a bunch of time to empty the tank during the winter, you can pump out the black tank instead. It goes faster so you’re not standing out there freezing.

Slide Covers

If your RV doesn’t have slide covers, these are a good idea for the winter. If snow and ice build up on the slides, you may not get the back in when it’s time to pack up and return to the daily grind. The slide covers keep the snow and ice from the roof of the slide and allows the slide to work without being blocked.

Electronic Essentials for Your RV

2-22-2016-ElectronicEssentials

When you take a trip, you should have some electronic essentials with you, especially safety devices or devices that will help you out of a bind. Whether you have been RVing for years or this is the first year you’re going out, you should have most of these items.

Tankless Air Compressor

Pick up a portable air compressor that works on 120 volt and 12 volts. This could save you in a bind, if you get a flat tire. Yes, it will take a while to air up a vehicle tire, but it could save you from having to call a tow truck by allowing you to get to a tire shop. The unit should be able to pump to 150 psi.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System

If you have an RV that doesn’t come with a tire pressure monitoring system, you can add your own. This may save you from having a blowout as the system will warn you when the air pressure is too low in case you don’t notice it before you leave. While it won’t save you from a blowout when you hit something in the road, it will save you and your tires when you have a slow leak.

Walkie Talkies

Pick up a set of two-way radios to help with parking in tight places, to keep in touch if you get separated at large venues or to hook up a trailer. They also come in handy if you are out on the trail and get separated.

RV GPS

If your RV didn’t come with a built-in GPS system, pick up a GPS to help you find your way in new places. Some units will also tell you what routes you take due to height and weight restrictions.

Mini Solar Device Charger

If you don’t want to run the generator just to charge your phone or tablet, a mini solar device charger will alleviate that problem. It’s an inexpensive way to keep everything charged, as long as there is some sun out there.
