SURECALL FUSION4HOME Cell Phone Signal Booster

I spend approximately half the year in my RV, and half at my home base in Livingston, Texas. I have marginal cell service at home, and often camp in fringe areas when RVing, so I began to look at cell boosters early last year. I wanted something I could use...

If you worry about your pet’s safety and comfort when you need to leave them alone in your RV, well, here’s a gadget that will help to calm your fears. The Waggle RV Pet Temperature Monitor works with an app on your cell phone. It monitors the temperature inside your...

Curt BetterWeigh MOBILE TOWING SCALE

Sometimes I get a product that really amazes me. What would you think if I told you that you can weigh your vehicle and anything it tows by plugging a little widget into your vehicle’s diagnostic port? I know it’s hard to believe, but the Curt BetterWeigh Mobile Towing Scale...

Tire Minder DIGITAL TIRE GAUGE

As a weighmaster for the Escapees SmartWeigh program, I’ve had the opportunity to handle and evaluate a lot of tire pressure gauges over the last 10 years. The program owns several cali-brated air sources, and we test RVers’ gauges at rallies and events. More than half that we test are...

Wolverine TUFF SMART BOTTLES

If you’re RVing away from hookups, water is always in short supply. Wouldn’t it be great to have a bit of extra water onboard? Sure, but what do you do with the empty water container when you don’t need it? I’ve experimented with inexpensive collapsible water jugs in the past,...

BETTY CROCKER PIZZA MAKER

My RV, like many today, doesn’t have an oven. I usually don’t miss it, except when I want some pizza. It’s hard to make one, or even bake one of the store-bought pizzas, without something to bake it in. That’s why I was thrilled to discover the Betty Crocker Pizza...

Overhead Collision ALERT SYSTEM

The Giraffe G4 is a product from the commercial trucking industry that can benefit RVers. Simply put, it measures the height of any solid overhead object. The transducer can be mounted on your RV or tow vehicle, and a digital display goes on your dash. With a couple of simple...

CLEARSOURCE Water Filters

Looks like the last filter system you’ll ever need to buy! Clearsource also offers a wide range of filter cartridges and accessories. If you travel long enough, you’re going to encounter icky water. Occasionally, it will be a campground with unsavory tasting well-water and, frequently, a city water source that...

GEEK AIRE FAN

Occasionally, I’ll receive a product for testing that turns out to be so great that I can’t live without it. The 10-inch Geek Aire cordless portable fan that the good folks at FLI Products sent me definitely meets that criteria. It’s simply the best little fan I’ve ever had. Strong...

Power Surge Protector

As we add more electronic goodies to our RVs, the need for surge protection grows. And it’s not just electrical surges. More power-hungry RVs increasingly challenge the RV park electrical environment, and low park voltage can harm appliances in your RV. Hughes Autoformers recently released the Power Watchdog, a new...
