Accessories Your RV Must Have

Here at our RV accessory department near New York, we know that there are a lot of extras that adventurers love to add on to their RVs. From onboard entertainment and decor to customization and comfort, you can trick your RV out just about any way that you want to.

There are some accessories, though, that are truly must-haves. And when we say must-have, we mean it! Some RVs include these items from the get-go, while others will require you to purchase them separately. Here are the items you’ll want to double check that you have before you hit the road!

Putting It in Park

When you reach your destination, you’ll want to make sure that your RV is level and stationary for the night. Whether it’s a designated RV park or an off-the-trail campground, you’ll need a few extras to settle in for the night.

RV wheel chocks

Wheel chocks keep your RV stationary by preventing the wheels from rolling; they’re especially important for travel trailers or accessory trailers, which don’t have built-in parking  mechanisms. You’ll also want a set of levelers which, as the name suggests, ensure that your vehicle is level. This is not only more comfortable, but also necessary to prevent damage to an absorption fridge down the line. If you’re not sure whether or not your model has an absorption fridge, ask our RV experts near New York for the information you need.

Getting Hooked Up

When you’re at an RV park, you can only take advantage of all of the amenities you’re paying for when you have the appropriate connectors. From essentials like water hoses, a water pressure regulator, sewage hoses, and an RV-specific shore power cord to luxuries like a cable TV hookup, you’ll always want to make sure you have the necessities to load up on what you need while unloading what you don’t.

RV cooking

Tricks for Cooking In and Out of Your RV

Whether you’re hiking with a tent or parking your RV, one of the best parts of camping is how little prep you need to worry about once you have your basic gear. All you really need to do before a trip is replenish any of your consumables and load up on food. While it can be easy to reach for the same camp-friendly meals every time you head out, our RV dealer near Pennsylvania recommends trying something new to shake things up!

Breakfast

Even with a full RV kitchen at your disposal, cooking over the campfire can be nice when you make camp. Start the day by living a paper bag with bacon, cracking a few eggs inside, and using a stick to roast the whole thing over hot coals for a few minutes. You’ve got a full breakfast in a bag! Just don’t cook it over an open flame, or the greasy bag will catch and you’ll lose your breakfast.

If you’re going to whip something up in the RV, you can save yourself some time, space, and hassle by cracking eggs into a bottle before you leave. No broken shells to worry about, no empty shells to throwaway, and no carton to store! Even better, why not park your new RV at a local market along the way to try this trick out with some fresh eggs from the famous Pennsylvania Dutch farmlands?

Lunch

Everyone loves macaroni and cheese and, as the chef of the trip, love preparing ahead of time. Combine both by making some macaroni and cheese beforehand and dividing it up into smaller aluminum tie pins coated with non-stick spray.

Personal pan macaroni and cheese

These are great, quick lunches as they can be prepared over the hot coals of your fire or over the stove in your RV’s kitchen. Convenience is key while camping, after all!

Dinner

Whether it’s a long drive or a day of hiking, you set the stage for the next day’s energy with a nice hearty meal. Quesadillas over the fire are the perfect way to wind down the night. Easy to make and easy to load up with whatever your campers are craving, quesadillas are also a great way to sneak in a few carbs without the space taken up by bread or other baked goods.

Making quesadillas outdoors

Whatever you and your campers decide to eat along the way, having an RV makes it easy to load up on your favorites and to keep everyone full and smiling for the whole trip.
