I read a post the other day on Facebook asking group members to list what their favorite must-have items for the RV are. I guess the longer you’re on the road the quicker your list of must-haves might be. We’ve only been on the road for a few years, so I suppose our list might be shorter than most. Or, perhaps we’re just learning that less is more. 😉
I think if you asked the hubby he would give you a slightly different list. Probably having to do with more technical things. But for now, here’s my list.
#5 The Crockpot – For our first 3 years on the road we didn’t have a working oven. So, using the crockpot was a must. I have to tell you though, I still use it more often than our convection oven for chicken breasts and pork tenderloin.
*By the way, if you’re going to use the crockpot grab some Slow Cooker Liners.
They make clean-up a breeze!*
#4 The Treager Smoker – This is a must for us because we use it for not only smoking but for grilling and even baking sometimes as well. The electronic temperature control works great and being able to get rid of the gas grill saves us some much-needed storage space.
#3 The Heated Hose – Although we do our best to stay out of areas where we need to worry about frozen water lines, every once in a while it’s inevitable. We’ve never had a problem while using this type of heated hose.
#2 Strongback Chairs – These chairs were a total surprise. We have a couple of zero gravity chairs as well. But the Strongbacks are super comfy and transportable. The carrying bag makes them easy to grab and take with you for an impromptu sunset with cocktails on the beach or to bring over to the community campfire in the park.
#1 Happy Camper Organic Black Tank Treatment – Hands down this is the BEST holding tank additive we have found! We’ve been using it for over a year and a half now and since starting we have never had any funky smells coming up from the bowl or coming from the sewer hose when we dump. Seeing as I’m usually the one doing the black tank dumping and rinsing this is a big deal for me! LoL Seriously, if you haven’t used this stuff yet give it a try. As you can see in the pic above, it is the one thing I always make sure we never run out of! LoL Simply said … It works!
