As I travel, I’ll provide the top resources I use to:
- Plan travel
- Gear I’ve found that I can’t live without
- Phone apps for finding stuff like, “Where do I dump my tanks?” and more.
Some of the links below could be affiliate links, which means you still pay the same price (or sometimes discounted) and I make some $ when you purchase. I’m only providing links to products/services that I’ve actually used and hope you will find useful too.
Love this GPS for it’s feature of entering in your RV dimensions and it navigates around areas where your RV will not be able to travel. I use this along with Google Maps and my Rand McNally Atlas.
I use a combination of all of these apps to plan my trips.
- Google Maps
- Allstays Camp & RV – Free/Pay spots and RV dump/service. Get the Pro version no ads and great map resources.
- Public Lands – to find free boondocking
- Ultimate CG – to find free boondocking
- iExit – to find out what’s at the next exit
- Campendium.com – to find free/pay boondocking
- Freecampsites.net – to find free boondocking
When you dump your tanks you want only the best and Camco Rhinoflex has always stood up to the “mess”.
A tire pressure monitoring system is an absolute must when you are RVing so you can always monitor your tire pressure and temperature and avoid any issues with flat tires or blowouts.
Clear elbow with hose fitting allows you to blast out the “nasties” from inside your black tank and see that the water runs clear when it’s emptied.
Those bumper ends always come off and sometimes the sewer hose doesn’t fit into the bumper so I installed this hose carrier with locking doors under the RV so the sewer hose fits perfectly inside so not to contaminate anything inside the RV.
Even though I have a gas stove, I wanted an electric kettle to use since I have solar panels and why not make use of the free energy from the sun. I use this daily to make my espresso coffee.
To conserve water, I was looking for a coffee/espresso maker that was also small and light weight. This little gem rivals my $600 espresso machine and grinder when I had my sticks and bricks home. Seriously! I’m a coffee snob.
