If you have been an RVer for a long time, then it is likely that you have learned the ins and outs of all the tools and accessories that you will need and want on a camping trip. Some of the things that you now have for your camping excursions you might have found out you needed the hard way. When someone is new to RV camping there are many people who offer up ideas on what’s on the RV camping checklist for camping trips, but sometimes the only way to know exactly what you will need as a new RVer is to test the waters yourself.
Of course, there are essentials that it is recommended for all types of RVers to have on hand and ready for camping trips. These things can add convenience and ease to any camping trip and you will find that they quickly become camping items that you cannot live without. Here is the RV camping checklist for newbie RVers to consider:
- RhinoFLEX RV Sewer Kit — Dumping waste is a job that no one likes to do. Luckily this RV sewer kit makes the job simpler because of the sturdiness of the hose, the useful end caps, and the simple connection. It is also much simpler to store than the “loose” variety of sewer hoses. The RhinoFLEX actually condenses to take up less space.
- Extension cord –If you ever get to a campsite and find that you need to extended your power supply, this guy will come in handy. There are many extension cords to choose from, but you will want to make sure that it is safe and heavy duty. A top choice of campers is the Power Grip Heavy Duty variety of extension cords.
- Wheel Chocks — To keep your RV in place and create a level spot, wheel chocks are incredibly useful. Many campers will try blocks of lumber and eventually go over to using wheel chocks as they are easier to stow and provide more reassurance.
- Kingpin Stabilizer or tongue chock — For campers with a fifth wheel, a Kingpin Stabilizer is a wonderful tool. This tripod offers up maximum support so that the fifth wheel stays shake free. A tongue chock can help keep the tongue of a travel trailer, popup, or utility trailer stabilized.
- Caulk — If you think about it, RVs take a lot of movement while on the road. That can lead to little cracks here and there which are completely normal, but you will want to patch those up. Interior caulk can fill those gaps or cracks inside around the shower or sinks. Exterior caulk can patch up any roof cracks. You will definitely want to be prepared with caulk.
The above RV camping checklist is, of course, only the beginning. Let us know in the comments below what your RV camping checklist includes!
