A while back I wrote a blog about RV Goodies that was very well received, so today I’m going to put a twist on that theme and tell you about fifteen handy gadgets that no RV should be without, and none of them will set you back more than a sawbuck.
Brass Water Pressure Regulator – You never know how much pressure that campground water outlet is going to deliver, and a water pressure regulator can save your RV from burst water lines due to high pressure. In fact, buy two, because RVers seem to lose a lot of these when they are unhooking to hit the road.
Extra Drinking Water Hose – Sooner or later you’re going to run into a situation where one water hose is not enough. I carry three different white fresh water hoses and have had to use all three more than once.
Dual Outlet Hose Adapter – This is another must have. I like to keep a second water hose connected to a Y adapter. It comes in handy for washing the RV in campgrounds that allow it, and can be invaluable if a fire starts.
Fresh Water Bandit – Don’t worry about unthreaded faucets or those with stripped threads, this little adapter lets you attach your water hose with ease!
All-in-One Handheld Tool Kit – You won’t believe how many times this handy little multipurpose tool comes in handy. It has a mini-hammer, measurement tap, bubble level, a screwdriver with 12 bits, and a flashlight.
4-In-1 Pocket Screwdriver – Have the convenience of a set of precision screwdrivers in one small pocket tool!
Stubby Ratcheting MultiBit Screwdriver – You can never have too many screwdrivers, and this little wonder will come in handy for those tight places where a full size screwdriver can’t fit.
Leveling Scissor Jack Socket – If you have manual scissor jacks, you’ll love this little tool. It saves time and effort to raise or lower scissor jacks, fits 3/8" or 1/2" power drills, and works with all 3/4" hex drive jacks.
SunShield Reflective Door Window Cover – Control the temperature in your RV and protect the interior from harmful UV rays. Hook and loop fasteners allow for easy installation
Wheel Chocks – Secure your trailer in place and prevent movement with these durable hard plastic wheel chocks with UV inhibitors.
Double Refrigerator Bar – How many times have you opened your refrigerator on a trip and had everything come crashing out? You can put a stop to that with these spring loaded bars.
Water Heater Tank Flush – Extend the life of your RV water heater with this must-have tool! Attach to garden hose and insert into your water heater drain opening and easily flush out sediment.
15/30 AMP PowerGrip Adapter – You’ll appreciate this little adapter when visiting family and you need to plug into 15 AMP power source. It’s contoured shape makes for easy removal from outlet.
Master Blaster Tank Wand – This wand is invaluable for flushing RV black water tanks and preventing blockages.
12/24 Volt LED Digital Volt Meter – I have one of these mounted below the overhead cabinets above my desk and can monitor my house battery voltage at a glance. Quick and easy to connect and install.
Thought For The Day – An expert is a person who has made every possible mistake in a small field of study.
