RV Use and Maintenance Items

Champion Power Equipment 75537i 3100 Watt RV Ready Portable Inverter Generator with Wireless Remote Start

Choosing the right generator to meet your needs can be a dizzying experience. How much power do I need? How loud and obnoxious am I willing to tolerate? How much am I willing to spend?

These were all questions that we wrestled with… and let me just say, it took 3 times to get the answer right! We purchased 2 different generators before finding this one. This unit produces enough power to run our 15K BTU A/C and is quite enough not to disturb all of our neighbors. Since it’s an inverter generator, we could connect (parallel) two units together should we need more power, which is a nice feature. Most importantly to us, this unit is compact and portable which makes it a great choice. So far, we are very happy with it. Not to mention, Champion blew us away with their customer support so we feel good about the manufacturer.

12-Volt/120-Volt Home and Auto Inflator

Maintaining the right tire pressure is absolutely critical to safe RV operation. We choose this small but capable tire inflator because it can be operated on 12v or 120v which is very convenient. Another reason we bought this product was because you can set the desired tire pressure and the pump will automatically inflate to that tire pressure.

 

 

Dicor 501LSW-1 Lap Sealant 

This self leveling sealant is a great choice for RV roofs! We used it to create a water tight seal when we replaced the refrigerator rooftop vent. Easy to use and does the job!

 

 

 

Thetford Premium RV Slide Out Seal Conditioner 

Keep your slide like new with this slide conditioner. Apply this conditioner to the seals to prevent drying / cracking associated with age.

 

 

Camco  Slide Out Lube

We use this product to keep the moving parts of our slide lubricated and in working order. Before using, our slide made lots of noise while sliding in and out. We applied some of this lubricator and it made it smoother and quieter.

 

 

Permatex  Clear RTV Silicone Adhesive Sealant

Permatex Clear RTV Silicone Adhesive Sealant is a general-purpose, black RTV indoor/outdoor sealant that bonds, seals, repairs, mends and secures glass, metal, plastics, fabric, vinyl, weather-stripping and vinyl tops. It protects and repairs electrical wiring and may be applied to horizontal or vertical surfaces. This product is super handy to have on hand for the various RV repairs that are sure to surface.

 

INNOVA  Auto-Ranging Digital Multimeter

We love this multimeter. It has come in handy several times already and appears to be a quality product. This really is a must have tool if you are living in an RV.

 

 

 

Geocel Pro Flex Bright White RV Flexible Sealant 

We used this sealant to caulk the seems of the RV. You should caulk the seems of your RV at least every year. This product got great reviews on Amazon and we were happy with it. We keep one tube of this on hand at all times.

 

 

 

Valterra Gray 20′ Viper Sewer Hose Kit

If you have an RV, you need a sewer hose. We chose this kit because it has two separate 10′ hoses. This is nice because most of the time, 10′ will be plenty of hose, but sometime you just need a little bit more and this kit gives you that. Additionally, this hose is a tough hose that will resit breaks and has a clear connection piece so you can see when the tanks are finished draining.

Camco Wheel Chocks

Another RV necessity – wheel chocks! Get these here and don’t overpay at the RV dealership!

 

Camco Leveling Blocks

You can’t hit the road without leveling blocks. These are very easy to use and help you get your rig nice and level.
