  • Outdoor Plumbing

    All about your RV Outdoor Plumbing

     

    Just like your electrical system, your water system is also a very important of your RV camping or travel experience. It gives you the convenience of having your own private restroom, hot shower and clean water for your other important activities.  If we are going to talk about your RV outdoor plumbing system we will have to will have to understand these three; your RV’s freshwater supply, sanitation and water heater system.

     

    RV Freshwater Supply

    The amount of freshwater stored in your RV Depends on the size of your and the type of trailer you have. Generally most RVs have 3 different kinds of tanks depending its functions. Your White tank is typically where your fresh water is stored and the source of clean water that goes in different areas of your rig. It also has a separate water hose that is used exclusively for drinking water though some owners prefer to buy a separate gallon of mineral water as their source of drinking water. The gray tank contains used water from your shower room, sink, and washers. While the black tank hold water and waste from your toilets.

     

    You normally use a plug in water hose and attached it to the source to refill the white tank with the help of regulators. In some cases, RV owners bring their own jug filled with water to refill the tank, especially if they are not expecting to find any type of clean water source soon. But the tank and the tubes cannot distribute the water alone, they need freshwater pumps to apply pressure to the tank and bring the water where it is supposed to go.

     

    RV Water Heater System

    Again depending on the type of RV you have, most of them have a separate water heater tank that is filled with a certain amount of water from your freshwater tank. This amount of water stored in the water heater tank is heated by the system using your RV power and is the one that will come out if you turn on the valve for hot water in the shower or in your faucets. The water pump automatically replaces the lost water and use power again to heat the water up to its desirable temperature.

     

    RV Sanitation

    Properly disposing water waste and cleaning your tanks is very important in keeping your RV clean, odor free and keep you away from many possible kinds of illnesses. There are legally designated areas where you can dispose your water wastes using your sewer hose and wastes valves. You can use a tank cleaner, a cup of bleach or add baking soda to sanitize your tanks and pipes. You can also find other kinds of cleaning and sanitation accessories such as toiler cleaners, paper towels, portable and holding tanks, water filters and many more.

     

    In cleaning your tanks, it is a good practice to carry extra garden hose with you for cleaning your sewer hose and the dump station and never forget to wear your gloves at all times during disposal. 

  • Camping and Lifestyle

    Take control of your adventure with everything found in this section. For the hardcore camper, we have a wide selection of camping supplies such as tenet pegs, shovels, rope and the other essentials for surviving your adventure. As or the more casual camper, you can also find things such as fire starters, picnic gear and bike racks, guaranteed to help you get the most out of the weekend.

  • LP Gas Products

    LP Gas Products – Getting to Know Propane

     

    The fuel of choice for heating, cooking and more, these liquid propane products will help you take full advantage of this efficient and clean burning gas. Here you'll find grills, hoses, fittings, tanks, regulators, mounts and everything else you need to get your propane system up and running.

     

    Technically, LPG is liquefied petroleum gas. However, it is called by many names in many countries: LP gas, LPG, natural gas liquid, NGL, natural gasoline, and gas condensate among others. It actually is any of the several liquid mixtures of the volatile hydrocarbons propane.

     

    LP gas is any of the many liquid mixes of the volatile hydrocarbons called propane, propene, butane and butane. One of its early uses (in 1860) is being used as a portable fuel source. Its production and consumption have greatly expanded since then.

     

    These days, it also contains ethane, ethylene, mercaptan and an odorant (a type of smell) added for safety precaution. It had reached domestic consumer in cylinders. The largest part of the gas is used in central heating systems, and next to it would be the use as raw material in chemical plants.

     

    Cooking

     

    LPG is now commonly used as fuel for cooking, in barbecue grills, gas cooktops and ovens, fuel and for gas fireplaces. Likewise, it is used as gas in portable heaters.  

     

    It is used as water heaters in Europe. The other use is also as engine fuels and for back up generators. (LPG can be stored indefinitely without degradation, unlike diesel.)

     

    Vehicle fuel

     

    In Canada and the US, the use of LP gas system in recreational vehicles is popular and common. Treated properly and maintained in good condition, this energy source is quite safe. Accidents happen due frequently to misuse more than anything else.

     

    If you are considering any RV purchase, new or second hand from any country you’re in. getting a gas certificate is certainly recommended.

     

    Gas installations

     

    There are several official methods in gas installations like in RV gas systems and in cooking equipments. Each one works in different guidelines specific to that user (cars/cookers/cylinders/other systems.

     

    In appliances, there is a slight difference in LP Gas system 2. Cookers/hobs are needed to be kept clean with particular focus to the burners. The fridges need to have all the ventilation hatches kept clean to work more efficiently. Water heaters need little attention where the gas anodes are required to be replaced regularly.

     

    LP Gas system 3 / 4

     

    Since the work on an RV gas system is legally off limits to budding handymen, it is covered with a different standard in the storage and handling of the LP gas. Handymen can do only the checking for leaks using soap water and connecting and disconnecting gas cylinders.

     

    The main work is to keep the LP gas system clean and checking for damages, especially underneath the van where the gas lines might be prone to stone damage.

     

    There is emphasis too on the ventilation holes in the gas cylinder bin (if there is one). The vent is often fitted to the lower door are. An external gas bayonet connection (under the van) should always be checked before use for any mud or dirt that affects a good connection.

     

    In LP Gas system 5, the access to cylinder bins in van-based motor homes is restricted. A licensed person is required to do all the installation and remedial work on the system.

     

  • Outdoor Cooking

    Outdoor Cooking – More Fun Done Outdoors

     

    Sure, the kitchen is great and you've whipped up many great meals on your stove top, but nothing is quite the same as cooking outdoors. Before you head out on your next adventure, take a look through our selection of grills, grilling tools, accessories and outdoor cookwear that will earn you the title of grill master in no time at all.

     

    For the truly outdoorsy-types of RVers, one of the most anticipated pleasures in taking that road trek with their RVs are the chances of doing outdoor cooking. The fun is not just on the food but in everything around it: the cooking, the scenery, the natural smells, the sounds maybe, the look of the sky and the freshly done food by the side of your RV.

     

     Cooking outside of your home is a totally different experience, what with the different ambience, and the many new things around. It may not be as perfect as doing it at home because you may not have everything to cook your food with, except the basics.

     

    Now, what would you be bringing over during your RV trekking adventure for cooking your own food? For those who had been there and done all that (and maybe more), some of the things you can bring and later use are just simple, practical kitchen supplies.

     

    These utensils are essentials aside from your refrigerator and the two-burner LPG gas stove (plus the optional microwave).

     

    Pots and pans

     

    These are kitchen necessities whether you simply want to boil some water (for the coffee or something). Maybe you’d like to do a full-term dish fit for the mountain air you’re camped in. Pots and pans are then a must. You certainly would want to have your bacon crisply done on a pan.

     

    You can maybe choose some nesting models (these are sets of same in different sizes for appropriate use by any one, big or small).  Since they are for use by RVers, they are also designed to save space in your RV during transport when not in use.

     

    Dish and glassware sets

     

    These portable sets are designed to be packed, stacked and are designed to be unbreakable. You can get them anywhere, especially in stores where RV things are sold.

     

    The canisters are for your coffee and for water or any beverage. Some small ones (half-pints) are perfect for use as kid’s cups. There’s also a serving dish and those other dishes that would be for use by everyone for any meal, snacks or refreshments. .

     

    French press

     

    This is for the coffee lovers who want to greet each morning with the freshly made brew, done French-style. The boiling water used on the coffee grounds is just as good in getting their flavor out for your morning or evening refreshment.

     

    (Electric coffee makers and microwave ovens are okay, although you would need about 60 amperes to use them; this means other power-using devices have to wait after you finish.)

     

     Instant pot

     

    This one has several main and multiple uses – pressure cooker, rice cooker, slow cooker, for sautéing or browning, making yogurt, and use as a steamer, including as food warmer.

     

    The best part is the benefits: it is one that saves space, saves propane and is versatile enough for cooking many types of food.

     

    Outdoor kitchens are housed in the exteriors of RVs with a ref, sink and stovetop, with portable table and chairs by the side. Others feature slide-out prep tables, stove tops, and refs. Whichever style RVs have, outdoor cooking is always a standout.

  • Exterior Ventilation

    Exterior Ventilation – Keeping the Air in your RV Fresh and Clean

     

     

    Keeping the exterior ventilation on your RV does wonders in increasing the airflow in your motor home and keeps the air fresh and clean. You can have windows open when you’re parked and keep the air circulating.  

     

    You can also have things open while on the road. These simple vent contraptions may not feel important but keeps the air inside your mobile home of sort clean and stale-free. It also removes cooking odors, humidity (from the showers mostly) and other unnecessary odors inside.

     

     

     RV vents

     

    These units for your RV are pretty similar. It goes with a fan in the roof, and an RV vent cap (that cranks up or down electronically.)

     

    However, the vent and the cap will wear out in time and need to be replaced. The vent is exposed to the sun and the elements. In time, it will become less efficient altogether.

     

    Vent replacement

     

    Replacing the RV air vent is a bit time consuming but straightforward.  The good news is that most of these are 14 inches square, and your chances of going wrong with size are not much.

     

    The first part is disconnecting the power inside your RV. Then, you need to study how the old vent was wired. (To be sure, you can take a snapshot with your phone, if possible.) You need to remove some screws.

     

    Be sure to be safe in your climb to your roof from the outside and take off the old vent. Unscrew things and take off the unit. (Also, gently remove the old sealant and clean off the debris.)

     

    Once you put back the screws in, apply the sealants. (This keeps the leaks out.) Connect back the wirings. When you’re sure, put the RV power back on.

     

    Vent Hood (cover)

     

    There are so many things that your vent hood allows you to do – and all of them are important in living inside your RV. First, it allows the air to circulate and it keeps the debris and the dirt from getting into the vent (and into your RV). This is one important way of keeping your motorhome interiors fresh and healthy.

     

    The vent allows use in harsh weather conditions, wet or inclement. The good news is that these vent hoods are easy to install, attaching to the RV vent with some needed screws and brackets.

     

    RV Ventilation Buying /replacement tips

     

    As one of the simplest devices for use on your RV, you want your vent hoods the size you need. If you have a strong vent fan, you may want a taller one that would be sturdy too.

     

    Installation instructions come with the new hood. However, you still have to measure where the brackets go, screwing them, and sliding the vent hood over. The hood easily attaches to the brackets with some nuts and bolts.

     

    Replacing your ventilation is a DIY task you can do, granting that you have the time, the confidence, and the important power tools that can tackle the job. Installing your exterior ventilation parts will ensure odors and humidity are vented away and keep the air inside your RV circulating properly.
