You’re about to jump into the RV and head off on an exciting adventure in the woods, or campsite. Just like Santa Claus, you made your list of Camper Supplies and you checked it twice, but when it comes to the safety and comfortability of your family, reviewing the third time isn’t a bad idea.
The top three things to look for in your final RV check are water, food, and sanitation.
There’s little doubt you’ve stored what you think is enough water to last the entire trip. However, the amount of water you’ve saved only takes into account an eventless trip from home to destination and back home again. For safety’s sake, it’s always a great idea to have an alternative on hand.
Water filter – water filters may not take out 100% of the bacteria, sediment, and other impurities, but in times of emergency, it may extract enough of the “bad” particles to reduce your chances of getting sick.
Yes, you’ve brought enough food to feed an army for a week, or so you think. If your trip were to be temporarily delayed and you were forced to stay at your destination for a week or two longer than you planned, do you have enough food to cover those two weeks? If you buy the right types of food, they can last years, so there’s no waste in the case your RV vacation goes as planned.
Minimal refrigeration – when looking to pick up extra food supplies, you want to ensure you don’t stock up on perishable items. Most RV lots come with electric access, but if you’re planning for a trip that doesn’t go as planned, you need to stick with food that doesn’t need to be refrigerated.
Not all require cooking – along the same lines as picking up nonperishable food, you want to choose foods that don’t require heating or cooking before eating. Some examples include canned tuna, canned beans, canned vegetables, and similar foods.
Finally, you’ve covered the extra food and water, now you want to keep one more item on hand as an insurance policy, if you will, in the case that your RV trip is delayed. You know what happens to the foods consumed throughout the day. That’s where camping safe sanitation supplies come into the picture. Some RVs are designed with on-board restrooms, but even in that case, you’ll need to address emptying the tank.
Biodegradable toilet paper – biodegradable toilet paper is sold with the camper supplies at RVupgradestore.com, major retailers, and online shops. The toilet paper is specially made to degrade faster than the kind you use at home.
Small shovel – in extreme cases, if you’re stuck using an outdoor bathroom, you may need a shovel to dig a hole to bury the waste.
Portable waste tank – even if your RV has a built-in restroom, tank storage is limited. To maximize the time you spend having fun on your camping trip, check out portable tanks at RVupgrades to add 30+ extra gallons of storage. All it takes is a portable tank to cut back on the number of times you have to uproot camp to dump your tanks.
At RVupgrades, we want our customers to enjoy RV life to the fullest. Remember that water issue? We have filters for that. When it comes to sanitation, we carry tank adapters, drainage hoses, and portable holding tanks to make your trip just a bit cleaner and brighter.
