RV Kitchen Hacks

Recreational vehicle kitchen storage

Here at our Pennsylvania area RV dealership, we know that one of the best parts of traveling in your motorhome is having a full fledged kitchen along for the adventure. Whether you’re cooking inside your RV or roasting dinner over a campfire at your campsite, nothing beats having a fridge, appliances, and storage for containers and spices along for the ride. After all, a fresh cooked meal beats a pre-packed snack any time!

One unfortunate side effect of a mobile kitchen, though, is that constantly being in motion can make a mess of things. From spilled containers in the fridge to scrambled cupboard contents, winding roads aren’t exactly conducive to an organized kitchen. Fortunately, the Dylans RV team has some great hacks to help you keep things in order.

Coordinate Your Cookware

Having pots, pans, and storage containers handy is an obvious benefit of having an RV, but it’s not much help if they’re all flying around in your cabinets–not to mention the noise while driving! For starters, we recommend getting a pots and pans set that nests together (where smaller pots fit inside larger ones). This helps you maximize your space. Additionally, buying a gew plastic trays or tubs can help you limit how much they move around inside the cabinets. A tub for your spice containers is practically an essential. We recommend getting square containers, as round ones end up wasting valuable space.

Another great extra is to buy a few tension rods, the kind you’d usually use for curtains. You can size them to fit in your cabinets and act like dividers to keep things from moving around.

Restructure Your Refrigerator

There’s nothing worse than opening the fridge to find spills inside, so we sure to secure things as best you can. Tension rods can work for this, too; just pack things toward the back, then place a tension rod across the front. Don’t forget to take advantage of the drawers, too.

Pick Up in the Pantry

Dry goods tend to be stored on shelves in the pantry, and once again your main goal should be keeping things from tumbling around. A good place to look for organizers for this area is in the office section of a department store. Boxes intended for file folders, mail, or photographs come in many different shapes and sizes. With a little luck, you’ll spot the perfect combination for keeping the pantry in your new RV from our Pennsylvania area dealer nice and neat.

How to Get Rid of Foggy Windows

Wherever you’re headed, enjoying the view is one of the best parts of hitting the open road with your RV. When you get a new RV from our Maryland area dealership, you can look forward to enjoying a crystal clear view for years to come.

RV windows and parts near Maryland

If you’ve had your RV for a while, though, you might start to notice that the view from the living area isn’t as clear as it once was. If there’s a sort of fogging or frosting on your windows that you can’t wipe away from the inside or from the outside, it can really detract from your experience on the road. Fortunately, the RV service experts at our Maryland area facility have the information that you need.

Where Does This Fog Come From?

To understand this fogging, you need a basic understanding of how your RV’s windows are built. Your RV has dual-pane windows, which have a bit of air between two window panes. The air in between adds insulation, helping in maintaining the temperature of your RV.

Over time, however, the seal around your windows can wear down and allow moist, humid air to find its way between the panes. When this moisture remains there, it can fog up the inside of the windows as the temperature changes. Even if the moisture evaporates, it can still leave a mineral residue on your window panes.

How Do I Fix It?

Some folks might try to convince you that your windows need to be replaced altogether, but that simply isn’t true. RV experts, like the technicians here at Dylans RV, can remove your windows in order to clean them inside and out. Once that’s done, we can replace them and install a new seal on your windows to prevent the problem from happening again.

If foggy windows have been taking away from the comfort and appeal of your motorhome, then it’s time to do something about it! For more information on this process, or any of the services we provide at Dylans RV, be sure to contact us online or by calling (856) 228-0090 today.

Best Fall Road Trips Stops in Virginia

The United States is huge, and sometimes it can be almost overwhelming. With so much to see in virtually every state, you can have a big adventure without ever leaving your home country.

In Virginia, there’s plenty to do and see. From hiking trails and untouched natural areas to rich colonial-era history, there’s plenty to check out–and you can do it all in your RV! If you’re planning a trip down the coast, start with a few of our favorite spots in Virginia.

Virginia road trip

Busch Gardens Williamsburg

More than just a theme park, Busch Gardens is an attraction with huge draw for people from all over. In addition to the rides and roller coasters you’d expect–and Busch Gardens certainly has some great ones–you’ll also find great places to eat, opportunities to shop, and a sprawling nature reserve with plenty of wildlife to see.

Better yet, you’ll find the American Heritage RV Park right around the corner, making this a great stop on your trip.

Monticello

Just outside of Charlottesville, Monticello is the renowned plantation home of Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States. Today, the once-5,000-acre plantation stands as a snapshot out of time, with botanical gardens and buildings that offer captivating tours that the whole family can get wrapped up in.

Jamestown Settlement

Virginia’s rich history covers practically the entire state, and nowhere is that more evident than the Jamestown Settlement. Located just two miles from modern day Jamestown, the settlement was England’s first permanent settlement in the colonies that would become the United States.

Historic Jamestown

Today, the settlement is a living museum with reenactment, reconstructed ships and buildings, and more for you to explore.

If you’re looking to get the most out of your next RV adventure, then Virginia is a great place to start. For more information on road tripping, or to ensure that your RV is ready for your next trip, be sure to contact Dylans RV directly by calling (856) 228-0090 today.

RV insurance

What is RV Insurance?

Considering the way an RV allows you to cover so many bases–it’s part vehicle, part hotel room, part utility vehicle, and part mobile home–it might be tough to classify it as just one thing. As such, it can seem a bit ambiguous whether you need to insure it or not.

RV insurance

At our Pennsylvania area RV dealership, we recommend insuring your RV to some degree–and you’re likely required to legally, as well. Just like you need a driver’s license to operate a recreational vehicle, it also needs to be insured in most states. Like your car, you can’t drive one without at least having collision insurance. Considering how much you invest in your RV, though, we recommend looking into comprehensive coverage, too.

Depending on your policy, RV insurance is very similar to car insurance. It can offer financial protection when you’re hurt in an accident, when you damage someone else’s property in an accident, or when your RV is damaged in an accident.

Who Insures RVs?

Many auto insurers pride themselves on offering a wide range of different coverage, including boats, ATVs, motorcycles, homeowner’s insurance, and–you guessed it–RV policies. If your auto insurer offers RV insurance, you may be able to get a discount for bundling your existing car insurance with coverage for your new RV from our Pennsylvania area dealership.

Pennsylvania area RV dealership

If your current provider doesn’t offer coverage for your RV, you’ll need to find one that does. Of course, you’re not obligated to insure your different vehicles through the same insurer; you can get a standalone policy for your RV from a different insurer, if you prefer.

How Do I Choose Coverage?

For a self-contained RV, you’re likely required to have at least medical benefits and collision coverage. Choosing appropriate amounts for your coverage, though, is best discussed with an insurance agent who knows the specifics of the vehicle you’re insuring.

No two RVs are alike, so it’s best to craft coverage for your specific vehicle. Towable pop-up RVs, for example, can be insured, but you’re likely not required to insure one by law. If you own more than one RV or trailer, we recommend determining coverage for them individually rather than choosing broad policy terms to cover them both.

For more information on different types of RVs and how you might go about insuring them properly, you’re more than welcome to contact Dylans RV by giving us a call at (856) 228-0090. We’re here to help.
