RV accessories

I know that I have walked out with a few more things than I had planned for on more than one occasion.

Here are some of the more popular Recreational Vehicle accessories that are available.

Leveling Blocks

Now here is an accessory that no RV camper should be without. The leveling blocks that are on the market today resemble Lego’s™ and snap together to give you the height needed to level your recreational vehicle.

They are very affordable and take up much less space then the old style of ramps that were made of 2 x 10’s that you had to keep adjusting to get your RV level.

Power Inverter

Out of all the RV accessories that I have, my power inverter has saved the day more than once.

A majority of our camping trips are to campgrounds that do not have hookups and running your generator early in the morning to make a pot of coffee is not a very popular thing to do.

With a power inverter, you can have that fresh cup of coffee and keep the peace and quiet at the same time.

You can pick up an inexpensive power inverter for around $30 – $40 that you just clamp to any battery. You can then run your coffee pot, other small appliances and even recharge batteries and cell phones.

Solar Panel

Solar panels are probably one of your higher end RV accessories, but if you do a lot of dry camping (camping without hookups) it is an excellent investment that will help keep your batteries charged for a little longer.

You can pick up a smaller and more affordable solar panel that is portable and will trickle charge your battery. These are good for batteries that you don’t use that much and you can afford to charge them over a longer period of time.

I picked up a 150-watt solar panel that is mounted to the top of my motor home and helps keep the batteries charged longer during normal use.

Satellite Dish

Camping has come a long way over the years and it’s not your typical roughing it type of camping anymore. More and more people want to bring the comforts of home with them including their TV’s and Satellite dishes.

Come on! what good is a TV if you don’t have 300 channels to go along with it? You can now have your TV and Monday Night Football form anywhere you set up camp.

You can pickup a satellite dish setup that is made just for RV’s from just about any camping or RV store around.

These are just a small number of the many RV accessories that are available and if you spend enough time in your local or online camping store, I’m sure you will be able to find many more.
