    instead of a battery tender, a cut off switch is another suggestion..You don't need to have a/c and the battery wont lose the charge.

    Excellent tips! My top tip is to use a good car maintenance program to monitor and manage all the maintenance that is required on an RV. I use a program called Automotive Wolf http://www.automotivewolf.com that keeps track of parts, expenses, fuel economy and sends me a reminder when anything needs to be checked or serviced. You can create your own maintenance requirements specific to your particular vehicle. It's a huge help and will extend the life of your RV. You can also get it on Amazon here https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07KRM17DP Happy RV'ing!

    I like the survival bag / bug out bag / bug in bag suggestion.
    I have my bug in bag sitting a few inches away from me in my semi, and we have our bug out bags at home, but I hadn't really given a lot of thought to adding bags in the RV.

    I always leave a bend(trap) on my sewer pipe. It keeps the gasses from the below ground piping from coming into my travel trailer. Nobody like the smell of sewer when relaxing.

    I always tried to avoid having my drinking water hose crossing the sewer hose. Especially not going under it.

    Thanks for the tips. Roadside assistance? AAA is totally WORTHLESS. Go with Good Sam or anyone else . Thant headlamp is crucial

    Thanks , first time viewing and it was very helpful. I'm not on the road yet, waiting for house to sell. I looked at 2014 Jayco and was pretty impressed by the inside appearance. So with so many to choose from I'd like to know how you like your Class C so far. Thank you for sharing your knowledge. I will be printing out that list. I liked the grill you shared also, I follow paleo myself for the most part. I'm really into grilled sweet potatoes right now cut like large fries. Yummy!

    Sanitize the faucet with bleach water before hooking your hose. Animals could of licked it or someone could of rinsed their black hose ends.
