Resources

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.

Garmin RV 770 LMT-S GPS

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.

RV GEAR

Camco RhinoFLEX

Camco RhinoFLEX 20' RV Sewer Hose Kit with Swivel Fitting

When you dump your tanks you want only the best and Camco Rhinoflex has always stood up to the “mess”.

EEZTire Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

EEZTire Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

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.

Camco Rhino Blaster Sewer Tank Rinser

Camco Rhino Blaster Sewer Tank Rinser

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.

Hub Cap Remover

Hub Cap Remover

A hub cap remover and replacer for any tire issues you have on the road so you can assess the issue and access inside tire well.

Valterra 64" EZ Hose Carrier

Valterra 64" EZ Hose Carrier

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.

KITCHEN GEAR

Bodum Electric Water Kettle

Bodum Electric Water Kettle

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.

Aeropress Coffee and Espresso Maker

Aeropress Coffee and Espresso Maker

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.

Prepworks Collapsible Prep/Storage Bowls with Lids

Prepworks Collapsible Prep/Storage Bowls with Lids

In order to conserve space and reduce the RV weight, I use these collapsable bowls, BPA free, for storing left overs or whipping up a salad or side.
