10 of Our Favorite RV Gadgets

The more we do this and live this life, the more we learn. We learn, our needs change, technology changes, and new cool things come out all the time. We don’t buy the latest and greatest, and we prefer to live simply, so maybe this list is a bit lower-tech than you’re expecting. But here are 10 of our current favorite RV doodads, in no particular order: 1. Happy Campers RV Holding Tank Treatment This stuff is amazing. It has no smell or added perfumes, it’s a simple powder that deodorizes holding tanks. We use this in our black tank, but we also add it to the gray tanks on occasion, if we notice any kind of odor.

Quick Tips: Turning off the beep on our RV Lock!

We love our keyless RVLock. It’s so convenient to be able to come and go securely and without a key, plus we can share the code with friends and family if there’s ever an emergency and someone needs to get inside. The one thing we don’t like about the lock is the default beep when locking/unlocking. It’s extremely loud, and we can ALWAYS tell when someone else in a park has the same lock we do. But you can turn off the beep! Just hold the 1 button for about 5 seconds, until you hear a quick double beep. That’s it! If you change your mind and want the beeps back, do the same thing, and you’ll hear a quick single beep. Share this tip with your RV friends!

We worried moisture would get into the lock and damage, it looked bad, and it could be considered a security risk because the most commonly used keys are the ones more likely to show wear first. We posted about it on our Instagram account, and am excited to report that RV Lock reached out to us to offer to send us a replacement face plate for the unit. They’d upgraded the materials used for the keypad and said the replacement should last much longer. The new plate looks thicker and sturdier than the cracked plate. We were also pleased to …
