These are the must have RV Accessories that you should always keep in your RV

Have you recently purchased an RV? Or have you been an RV owner for years but never quite felt like it was your home away from home? If so, it may be because you don't have the must have RV accessories in your RV. You may have tried to outfit your RV with items you thought you needed based on what truckers use on the road, but this probably didn't work out well. While things like fleet tracking and plush resting areas are necessary for long-haul truckers, RVs are designed for enjoying life and relaxing. Which means the same accessories aren't needed. Keep reading for must have RV Accessories that you should keep in your RV at all times.

An Instant Pot

If you plan to stay in your RV for extended amounts of time, then having an Instant Pot on board is a must. After all, you may not want to sacrifice the enjoyment offered by a home-cooked meal for fast food every night. For those who agree with that statement, your Instant Pot will become your best friend. These handy, self-contained cookers allow you to make all types of foods in a single pot. In fact, they combine the ability to cook rice, slow cook foods, pressure cook capabilities, and more.

Solar Panels

These are the RV Accessories that you should always keep in your RV

A big part of RV ownership is getting off the grid and enjoying some peace and quiet away from the busy cities or just getting lost on the open road. While living off the grid can be exciting to think about, you still need to prepare. For example, do you have a backup plan if your generator stops working? If not, it may be time to think about solar panel installation. Solar panels are an excellent option for charging phones and running small appliances, etc.


Are you planning to travel to the south during the summer months? If so, you will encounter humidity. There are more than a few reasons to invest in a dehumidifier. Not only is this going to help make your RV more comfortable, but they can also help eliminate any musty odors in the RV, shorten how long it takes your laundry to dry, and can help keep your food from getting moldy or going stale.

Leveling Blocks

When you park your RV, some areas won't be level enough. If this is the case, having leveling blocks is a must. While some RVs are designed with built-in leveling jacks, you can also purchase separate leveling blocks to help ensure you can park anywhere without issue.

Coffee Maker

For many people, coffee is a big part of their day-to-day life. If you love your morning and afternoon cups of coffee, then having a coffee maker on board should be a no-brainer. You can find all types of coffee makers to consider, and each one will help you get that jolt of caffeine that you want and need, regardless of what time of day you drink it.

Surge Protector

Having access to electrical power sets RV camping apart from camping in a traditional tent. A surge protector will also ensure that you can enjoy all the comforts of home while you're you are exploring the world. Be sure that you protect your electrical systems with quality surge protectors. This provides a buffer between your RV and the power that comes out of electrical outlets. Also, the right surge protector will monitor the total amount of power from the outlet to ensure it does not negatively impact your RV due to power spikes or other electrical problems.

If you want to make the most of the time you have in your RV, be sure to keep the tips and information here in mind. When you invest in the accessories listed here, you can enjoy your RV even more and make the most of your time traveling the country and having incredible experiences.
