Getting a Water Softener for Your RV

by Julie T 12/20/2018
When you are traveling in your RV, your water quality can change dramatically depending on which part of the country you are in and what the local water source is. Hard water, for example, occurs when there are high levels of certain minerals in the water that end up leaving deposits once it has evaporated. Drinking hard water does not harm you, but it does have an effect on your RV's plumbing and appliances that use water. Scale grows in the pipes and water lines, and collects on surfaces in high-moisture areas. Hard water is tough on clothes when you wash them and keeps soap from lathering up properly. Luckily, there are portable RV water softeners which can remove these substances from your water.
Why Use LED Bulbs in Your RV?

The standard lighting that comes with your RV often ends up creating excess heat, and can go out immediately with no warning. If you find yourself often having to replace your RV's bulbs, perhaps it’s time you upgraded to using LEDs. Referring to Light Emitting Diodes, LEDs are becoming a more popular choice for RVers, and can actually save you money in the long run. They not only can replace incandescent lights, but fluorescent and halogen ones as well.

Go "Green" on Your Next RV Trip

by Julie T 3/29/2018
Staying environmentally conscious while RV-ing isn’t necessarily a contradiction in terms. Taking an RV trip can actually be one of the eco-friendlier ways to travel, particularly when compared to flying somewhere and staying in a hotel. RVs are being designed nowadays to create less of a carbon footprint than RVs in the past. They typically use less water than homes do and can travel with more people than a smaller vehicle on a road trip. In addition, most likely you take your motorhome to natural spots. You'll probably be more apt to want to see it preserved for future generations.
