    Installing RV satellite question....

    We have a dish on our RV roof, but sometimes when traveling we have a spot with tree coverage that does not allow for connections. This Winegard portable dish with a long cable allows us to see our shows, yet stores away when not in use. Easy to move between the stationary antenna and the...

    Snap Pad removal

    I like this Camco jack pad’s one-piece nesting design. People can place it in an RV parking area where the travel trailer’s leveling jack does not reach the ground. It bridges the gap between the jack foot and the ground surface. There is no need to stack several RV stabilizer jack blocks...

    Rubber Roof - Sealant Type

    I highly recommend this Heng's rubber roof coating. I've used it on my RVs for several years. It is super white, which helps cool the RVs in the Texas summers. And, it lasts well, protecting the roof from leaks. It is non-polluting and non-toxic, too. Another positive effect of this product is...

    Rv Mattress

    This Zinus mattress is comfy! It's firm yet plush, hard to describe as it molds to your body rapidly (and resets form just as rapidly once you're off it) and makes you feel like you're sleeping on a cloud/weightless.

    Sikafflex 521 UV or Proflex RV Caulk

    Used this caulk from Dicor to install a couple of fantastic vents on our camper. The stuff that came off the old vents looked like it was this and some other kind of tough caulk. The tough stuff was almost impossible to remove from the rubber roof. One tube was enough to sufficiently install and...

    I used lubricant for the slide-out on motor gears and haven't had any problems. It's not recommended for use on rails, but I did, and so far I haven't had any dirt buildup.

    Bedroom Vent Fan

    I replaced our hybrid travel trailer's OEM bathroom exhaust fan with a Fan Vent, the Fan-Tastic Vent 3-Speed. This fan is strong enough to pull the headboards off the bed, making closing the door much easier. Very quiet on 300 & 600cfm, 55 and 60 dB respectively. 900 cfm at 65 db, a bit bigger...
