Thermacell Backpacker

I’ve reviewed other Thermacell products, so when they recently came out with a new backpacker version, I was interested, but skeptical, as I don’t backpack often. However, this may prove to be the ultimate mosquito solution for RVers as well. For those who are unfamiliar with Thermacell products, the repellent...

Hitch Accessories

There are many useful cargo accessories available that fit into a standard two-inch receiver hitch. There are bicycle carriers, storage boxes, scooter carriers and cargo platforms, to name a few. Unfortunately, most travel trailers don’t come with a hitch receiver on the back, so you can’t use them. Or, can...

EZ-UP Light

It’s a nice, warm night, perfect for dining out at your campsite. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could have a light on your picnic table or maybe even on your barbecue grill? Forget flashlights and lanterns; you need an EZ-UP Light. This handy, remote-controlled LED light clamps to any...

Portable Induction Cooktops

Most RVs don’t have large stove tops, and the burners are usually fairly low output. This can be a challenge when you want to cook a big pot of food such as gumbo, stew or soup. Several of my RVing friends carry induction cook-tops, and they love them. I finally...

GlowStep Revolution

For years, the RV industry has needed a better entry-step option for raised trailers and pickup campers. I’ve seen seriously unstable and barely-usable steps on these types of RVs. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a better solution? Well now, a better option is available: GlowStep Revolution from Torklift....

Universal Plate Repair Kit

Let’s talk about the universal plate repair kit. No, it’s not for dinner plates, or upper dental plates, but rather for plates where gas spring door hardware attaches. Many RVs have gas springs on their outer compartment and bay doors, and, all too often, a strong gust of wind (or...

Kill A Watt EZ

Have you ever had one of those moments where you think, “Now, why didn’t I think of that?” I sure did when I received a note from a member, Robert Boehm #90515, that said, “Check out this easy- to-use consumer power meter. It’s the Kill A Watt® EZ, part #P4460....

Gadgets Revisited

A couple of gadgets I’ve written about in years past have been upgraded. ARP controller Paul and Mao Unmack #116483 have re-leased an upgraded ARP controller, version 3.1. The ARP is a device that protects your RV absorption refrigerator from being damaged by operating off-level. An RV refrigerator depends on...

Durable Sewer Hose

Are you ready to own a sewer hose that you won’t have to replace every year or two? Meet the Camco RhinoFLEX™ sewer hose. These hoses are constructed out of durable PVC plastic, and they don’t have metal springs inside like most hoses. Instead, the hose is designed like an...

Goofy Products Cord Organizers

If you’re like me, you have a variety of cords in all shapes and sizes all over the RV. There are cords for phone and tablet chargers, laptop name a few. It’s like a spaghetti nightmare! But there is hope. I recently received a box of cord organizers from G. Scott and...
