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...

Wine Glass Holder

I have found an excellent gadget for wine lovers who want to keep their stemmed glassware safe in their RV. It’s called a Wine Yoebi, which is hard to spell and even harder to say, but it’s a neat little holder that will protect your favorite stemmed wineglasses from damage...

Closet Rods

You need to use your shower! I don’t mean to imply that you must go take a bath; I’m only suggesting you use your shower when you aren’t using it. You have to admit, most RV showers are wasted space when you’re not bathing. But you can reclaim that wasted...

Thermacell Lantern

In a past RV Gadget Box, I reviewed the basic Thermacell mosquito repellent device. I field-tested my device in Alaska and it really does the job on pesky insects, even those legendary blood-suckers up north. Thermacell recently added a camping lantern to their product line and I couldn’t wait to...

The Flashlight Reinvented

LED lighting technology is advancing so fast, it’s hard to keep up. I have LED lights everywhere in my RV and have converted my Maglites to Cree LEDs. I had been looking for a good LED work light and came across this pocket-sized marvel. The NEBO Larry-C flashlight is, well,...

Gorilla Tape and Goof Off

If you think I have an obsession with duct tape, you’d be right. Well, I recently “discovered” the best duct tape ever: Gorilla-brand heavy-duty duct tape. This tape has a super-aggressive adhesive that is twice as thick as standard tapes, and it will stick to surfaces that other tapes can’t...

Compact AC Adapters

Every RVer should have a selection of electrical adapters onboard. This will allow you to hook up your RV to the various electrical outlets you’ll find as you move around the country to various locations. These adapters are commonly referred to as “dog bones,” and they are essentially a plug and a receptacle attached to a short...

Battery Maintainer

It seems like RVers always need to store a vehicle or two. It may be your motorhome going into seasonal or long-term storage, a car that won’t be driven while you are away from your home base or a motorcycle that’s no fun to ride in the winter. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to...
