  1. You can use Camco for the awning clean, it is tested to be safe for generally all kinds of awning fabrics. It is a highly concentrated cleaning product, so you need to dilute it in some water for regular cleaning purposes. Just 4 ounces of this cleaner mixed into a gallon of water is strong enough to clean even the largest RV awning thoroughly.
  2. You can read how to replace RV awning rollers here. I hope this helps you.
  3. Sturdy, well-built, comes with all the parts you'd need and more, and works as intended. The only concern is that the documentation should be a little clearer on how to install. My favorite feature is the ability to tilt on the go without having to unscrew. The lock stays in place. In approximately 30 minutes, we were mounted and in our camper.
  4. This appliance from Farberware is quite possibly the most compact portable camping dishwasher I have ever had the pleasure of using. This machine is so small that it is considered portable. If you have a small travel trailer with dishwasher and you usually go on trips alone or with another person, then it should be the right size for your needs.
  5. This is how to manually retract RV steps in case things malfunction and you are in the middle of nowhere. You can read more.
  6. Fully extend your slide-out. Look for the rubber seals of the slide-out. Pull the seals aside to expose the metal components – Spray a liberal amount of lubricant on all the moving parts like the gears, sliders, and the track, and any exposed metal parts so that they will not get rusty or pitted over time.
  7. Garmin is a global leader in navigation system manufacturing, offering mapping and GPS systems for the maritime, aviation, automobile, and fitness industries. Garmin devices include information on sites of interest, RV parks, and other locations.
  8. Flame King gas grill is also great. You can hook the grill to your RV’s propane line using a quick-connect hose (included). Alternatively, you can connect it to freestanding propane tanks.
  9. When it comes to warranty, Michelin tires would be ideal due to its extended warranty of 10 years. Michelin has a wide range of tire selection for different heavy-duty vehicles, so you can easily choose according to your preference. From RV campers, motorhome to huge trucks, Michelin has RV tires for all of them.
  10. Cleaning the RV fresh water tank is necessary to eliminate any potentially hazardous pollutants that may be present. Ingesting algae and dangerous bacteria can raise the likelihood of health problems such as vomiting, fever, and gastroenteritis. You can find more information about how to sanitize RV freshwater tanks.
  11. I love the idea of not having to grab the keys to unlock it. There is also a remote fob included which can be really useful when trying to load up something and have full hands. Carmtek is a well-made RV lock, feels very solid, it's way heavier than the one originally on our camper. At first, I was a little apprehensive about the price but security is a big piece of my mind!
  12. LATCH.IT is a great keyless entry door lock. It has a long operation distance, an all-metal body, and an easy-to-install process. You can consider it.
  13. If you are dealing with a slight impediment, a plunger might be a feasible option. Because it is commonly found in RVs, this tool should be your first choice for attempting to clear the blockage. or you can use boiling water. However, ensure that the pieces of your toilet are strong enough to withstand the high temperatures.
  14. We bought Weber after reading several reviews on it and several other portable grills. It's ideal for our class A motorhome, and we bought a lovely plastic tote that's the perfect size for storing it. Cooks really well, has excellent heat distribution, and is also very easy to clean. Weber produces high-quality products. I definitely suggest it! We also bought a Webber adaptor, a bonnet cover, Minnie barbecue tools, and a wire scraper.
  15. I think both Rand McNally and Garmin are great. Rand McNally offers bigger devices, allowing them to install better speakers. These come in handy when you wish to answer more calls on the hands-free mode. The details about points of interest, RV parks, and other locations are available on Garmin devices. Rand McNally, on the other hand, doesn’t offer much in these terms.
  16. Both Toyo and Michelin are great manufacturers of tires. If you need an all-weather tire, Toyo RV tires are a good choice because of their outstanding anti-slip grip. When it comes to warranties, Michelin tires are great because of their 10-year warranty. Both are good anyway.
  17. RV hoses are intended for warm areas and have been known to fail when the temperature drops. The plastic substance is subjected to thermal stress, which causes cracking. This is why you must know how to keep the RV hoses from freezing. You can supplement insulation and heat supply to your hoses to deter the conduction of cold temperatures to your hose and your fluid inside.
  18. I like Star Brite RV polish & wax product because it is the easy application that it offers. You can use it with a buffer or apply it by hand, which makes the task easier. Apart from keeping the colors of your RV vibrant, this product assures that stains are kept at bay.
  19. RecPro is also great microwaves. Although this RV microwave with trim kit is small and compact, it has a generous amount of cooking space. When you open the door of the oven, you will be treated to generous 1-cubic feet of room. I have warmed up my large dinner plates in my RecPro microwave, and there was still a bit of room to spare.
  20. I do not have a lot of major complaints about the Solera replacement fabric awning. I discovered that this option for the right RV awning replacement fabric is somewhat easy to use. It is long-lasting, too
  21. We use Weber propane grill, the grease management is unsurpassed. The rust-free enameled cast iron grates ensure even heating and proper crusting of food for superior flavour. The grates and burner are aligned to prevent food burning and flare-ups. The grill will not flare up no matter what food I cook, including marinated chicken halves.
  22. I think we should invest in an RV dishwasher. I want to spend time outside with my family instead of wasting time and energy cleansing the dish wares.
  23. I use a soft brush or dishcloth for cleaning the screens with Gel-Gloss cleaner
  24. We used RecPro to replace a day/night shade in our RV. The cord broke and couldn't figure out how to take it apart to replace the cord so bought this instead. Didn't even use the brackets, just screwed it to the wall like the old one and it worked great!
  25. I am using Camco Flagpole, very sastified with it. The flagpole can extend up to a staggering 20 feet in the air. When you are ready to go back home, it can collapse to just 64 inches in length. Furthermore, it is quite affordable.
