Virtual reality is a completely different lifestyle than we left behind. Our company was launched in the fall of 2018 without any idea what we were doing. The adjustment to living in an RV full time has gone smoothly for all of us! The items we’ve found along the way have made this lifestyle easier and more enjoyable. Here are the outdoor RV accessories we highly recommend for campers who go full-time or only camp occasionally.

Generator

The majority of our camping is boondocking, or dry camping. Without our generator, we wouldn’t be able to do this. The ole’ generator gets us through the occasional power outage when the electronics need charging, the lights need to be turned on at night, or we need to run the blender. Inverter generators of 2000 watts, such as the WEN 56200i, are the right choice. All of our appliances except the air conditioner are powered by it, and it is super quiet and efficient. Almost half the price of Honda and Yamaha generators!

Solar setup 

We are extremely grateful that our rig came with a solar system, since it offers great power even on cloudy days and at night. Our travels wouldn’t be complete without it! We installed a UXCell MPPT 20A charge controller before we went on the road and had a 100W panel that came with our RV when we bought it. As a result, we save gas on the generator and still have power when we use the Renogy 100ah Gel batteries.

Drinking water hose

Your fresh water tank can be filled with any old hose. Put your thinking cap on! The tough garden house was too difficult to work with when we first bought just a standard green garden hose. Folding it up and storing it away was a hassle. The Zero-G garden hose we bought is lightweight, strong, and kink-resistant. Lightweight and non-bending, as its name implies. Whenever we are not using it, it can be easily stored in the basement of the RV!

Water filter

Fresh water is filled in some pretty random places. A gas station, roadside rest area, or city park can be a good place to camp if you’re not at a campground with hookups. Our fresh water tank is never filled without our water filter so that you can be assured that our water is clean. Filters the water directly at the source by fitting directly to the faucet and hose. The filter eliminates aluminum, bad taste, copper, lead, mercury, hydrogen sulfide, odor, turbidity, and cadmium. It is amazing to see the difference between water from the same source with and without our filter. The filter makes our water so much better!

Sewer hose & support

Someone has to clean the black and gray tanks, but it’s a dirty job. Having reliable equipment made that job easier. The hose we chose was the Camco RhinoFLEX 15 ft RV Sewer Hose Kit. An easy-to-handle, sturdy hose. You will find everything you need in the kit, including a swivel fitting, a translucent elbow with a 4-in-1 dump station fitting, and storage caps. For the “stinky slinky” support, we chose the Camco 20 ft Sidewinder RV Sewer Hose Support. Using it is easy and everything flows smoothly.

Fittings for Wye

We find it easier to deal with two sewer hoses at once. A black tank and a gray tank in the galley. Neither touching nor moving the sewer hoses will be necessary. WYE fittings simplify sewage systems and ensure smooth operation.

Level blocks

Unleveled RVs are common, right? Living on a boat can throw your balance off. Our rig is leveled before we move to a new campsite. Our leveling blocks are very durable and effective, so we are very satisfied with them.

Chocks

We always chock our RV’s wheels when we arrive at a new campsite. It is easier to unhitch the rig with chocks. This ensures everyone’s safety and well-being.

Circuit analyzer & surge protector

Several campgrounds report faulty electricity hook-ups. To ensure our safety and the safety of our RV, we always test the campsite’s outlet before plugging in. Our electrical box can be verified this way if it is working properly.
