    We still haven't purchased a water filter to attach to the water supply. We filter on the inside with a smaller refrigerator filter for drinking. I've always debated an outside supply filter. Part of me is like "I totally get it and it's straight forward and easy"….the other part of me is like "why do I need to filter the water that goes in the toilet?"….

    Yay for the gloves! We see so many people handle the hoses without gloves and we think the same thing that it is gross and how can people do it! Great video with great tips for people who are just getting started! Thanks for sharing! ~ Maggie and Brandon

    Great video, well put together and every item you get right to the point of why it is good 👍🏼 It is so true to wait and actually camp before buying 1 million items. We were told to get vent covers probably from a Youtube video 3+ years ago and still to this day we have not bought them or felt like we need them. We remember thinking we needed them though because other people said so….nahhhh! Thanks for sharing great stuff! ~Renee and Kyle

    Hi guys. Great info here. This information can seem so overwhelming until someone breaks it down like you have so folks can see the absolute essentials. Separate hoses and separate buckets-YES. Thanks for walking though these items.

    You are so right about the necessity of a good surge protector at the least. Better still is one that has a power analyzer with the surge protection. Ive had personal experience where our surge protector with power analyzer has saved us from both surges, and brownouts. The brownouts are the worst! They will fry your entire RV power distribution system!
