If you own an RV, there are things you need to make your travels easier. As we know, an RV doesn’t have all the space in the world so let’s talk about the 25 things that should at the very least be there. 

Best RV must-haves Travel Accessories You Might Want For Your Next Road Trip

#1 Water hose

Water supply is a must when traveling with an RV so a water hose to fill your tank or to connect to the campground’s city water is a must. Take note that this is different from the typical garden hose. 

Lead is the material found in garden hoses and is not safe for drinking, thus, it’s not an ideal  choice to bring in your trips. On the other hand, an RV water hose is made of drinking-safe materials.

There are various types of water hoses that you can bring depending on your needs. If you’re travelling during the winter, a heated or freeze-protection hose will do you well. But overall, you should ensure that your water hose is lined with polyurethane since this is the safest means to have a clean water supply.

Recommendation

Camco (22783) 25' TastePURE Drinking Water Hose - Lead and BPA Free, Reinforced for Maximum Kink Resistance 5/8" Inner Diameter , White
  • Made with NSF certified hose; Drinking water safe
  • Reinforced for maximum kink resistance
  • 25' long x 5/8"ID

The lead- and BPA-free Camco TastePURE is a great option. It is available in sizes 4 feet to 75 feet and is reinforced for maximum kink resistance so you can store them properly. 

#2 Water pressure regulator

This is a device to avoid water pressure surges to protect your RV’s plumbing system, hose, and filters. There are different types to choose from: inline barrel regulators, adjustable regulators, and high-flow inline barrel regulators.

Inline barrel regulators have the capacity to restrict 40 to 45 PSI water pressure. However, they have no ability to adjust water pressure. The high-flow inline barrel regulator does the same with the difference of it having higher flow. The adjustable regulator on the other hand has a gauge that lets you monitor and adjust the pressure as needed.

Recommendation

The Valterra A01-111VP is an adjustable variant that comes with a flathead screwdriver to allow ideal water flow. It has an easily-readable gauge with an inlet screened washer.

#3 30 amp or 50 amp shore power cord

To run the appliances in your RV, a power cord is a must. They come in either a 12-volt battery system or a 120-volt shore power source. A shore power cord is used to connect to the campground’s main electrical grid. Please do not use a regular extension cord as this poses fire risk.

Check the amperage you need before purchasing a shore power cord, whether it’s 30 or 50 amps. An ergonomic handle also adds in the ease of using it. 

There are two style variants: dog bone adapters and puck adapters. A dog bone adapter takes more space but it’s the more durable option while the puck adapter is smaller but gets hot quickly so you shouldn’t use it for long-term.

Recommendation

  • 90-Degree Heads: Help reduce pressure and stress on the power cord and its connection.

The 25-foot Camco Power Grip extension cord is a 30-amp variant with a threaded locking ring for a waterproof property. 

#4 Sewer hose

The purpose of this is for the connection of the internal drainage and your RV’s waste systems to external sewers. This is to deliver the waste from your tank to the drains, portable tanks, or external sewers to keep your RV clean. 

The sewer hose and the black water tank are connected and the pressure is applied to push the waste into the tank. To maximize the function, ensure to purchase a durable sewer hose. Consider flexible options since rigid ones break sooner.

The ideal hole size is 4×4 to maximize the flow, this, preventing clogging.

The 20-foot Camco RhinoFLEX RV sewer hose kit has a handful of accessories that can improve durability and functionality. 

#5 30 amp or 50 amp surge protector

To protect your appliances, make sure to have an RV surge protector with you. A surge protector is typically connected to the camp’s power outlet prior to connecting the electrical cord to the RV. The surge protector cuts off the voltage surge before it reaches the RV.

There are different types you can choose from based on your needs: primary surge protectors, secondary surge protectors, power strips, portable surge protectors, and hardwired surge protectors.

Recommendation

#6 Holding tank treatment

To stop your RV from smelling horribly like sewage and to avoid clogging, make sure to use some tank treatment. It’s a chemical product that you simply add to the toilet system to break down any matter that’s present in the tank. The water then easily flows out of your RV. Additionally, these tank treatments help eliminate odor along the way. 

Holding tank treatments either come in tablet and liquid forms.

#7 Levelers

Levelers are placed beneath the wheels for height adjustment. You will not always find an even ground when parking your RV so these levelers can be used in those scenarios. 

It comes in two main styles: ramp-style and block-style. The block-style blocks come in Lego-style building blocks while the ramp-style models are like ramps that you have to drive over. 

Recommendation

#8 Generator

A quiet generator adds power to your RV as you travel. This is important because not all places will come with available electrical connections.

The majority of RV generators are easy to install and are light in weight. There are different types but the most preferred are gas and diesel generators. Propane generators are eco-friendly alternatives but they’re usually on the pricier end. 

Recommendation

#9 Air compressor

Occasional RV-users may not find this important, but if you frequently travel with your van, you have to consider an air compressor. 

RV tires tend to get over- or under-inflated overtime and both of these may pose some accident risks. If they’re over-inflated, they can burst. On the other hand, if they lack inflation, they can lose grip. Even a small 10-psi difference can cut down your RV’s weight capacity by 25%.

The purpose of an air compressor is for you to be able to monitor your tires’ air pressure. Some variants can also detect tire temperature levels. 

Recommendation

#10 First aid kit

This one is a true no-brainer. You don’t know what will happen along the road so make sure that you have a first aid kit ready for emergency situations. Although a first aid kit may not be enough to treat major injuries, they may buy you some time as you find your way to the nearest medical facility.

#11 Refrigerator fan

The refrigerator almost always consumes the most power among all the RV appliances. The hotter it is outside, the more power it consumes to keep the cool temperature. 

This is where the refrigerator comes in. The cooler the RV refrigerator is, the lesser power it consumes, thus, saving you power along the way. They are cheap but they can save you a ton!

Recommendation

The Valterra A10-2606 is a 3-volt refrigerator fan that is compact. It provides a portable air circulation system that helps cut down cool-down time by over 50%.

#12 Immersion blender

To help you have delicious meals even when you’re out traveling in your RV, an immersion blender should be one of your considerations. It chops, crushes, blends, and purees vegetables to make sauces and smoothies. Advanced models come with self-cleaning systems to make cleaning the appliance a breeze.

#13 Water filter

We all need clean water to survive. That’s a given. Buying plastic bottles of water every time is not only expensive but it does no good to our environment. There are available water sources in campgrounds but it’s not always 100% safe to drink.

To solve this, installing a water filter in your RV’s kitchen is a great idea to ensure some clean and potable water. They usually come in an ultra-fine sieve to trap the pollutants.

#17 Propane fire pit

Since burning wood to create fire is forbidden in a lot of campgrounds for safety reasons, having a propane fire fit can still give you the campfire experience without the safety hazards woods bring. Propane fire fits come in different forms. Some even come in a form of fake logs to really give you the illusion of burning wood. Another alternative is to utilize lava rocks!

#18 Grill

If you enjoy your barbecues, then it’s not difficult to think why you’d need a grill. It can also cook you burgers, ribs, or steak. However, the challenging part here is looking for one that’s portable since you’re taking it around along with you. 

Two options come to mind when I think about a grill perfect for the RV. On top is a charcoal grill because it’s cheap and easy to find but with a downside of it producing a lot of residue. This can make the cleaning process tedious. On the other hand, propane grills are eco-friendly and are a lot easier to clean but they come in a higher price point.

A portable folding table is a convenient item to go around as it can serve a lot of purpose. It makes cooking and preparing meals easier and your group can comfortably eat on it.
