RV Appliances for Convenience

RV appliances are the one thing you need in your RV to keep it running to meet all you needs.

The refrigerator needs to be in tip-top shape to provide you with a cool place to put your food products.

You could keep everything in coolers, but ice does not last that long and it will need to be replaced every day. Even a small compact refrigerator could work for camping. 

Maintenance on the refrigerator may require replacing parts as needed.

They are available and some repairs can be done yourself.

Another appliance that many camping people feel is essential is the water heater

Showers, washing dishes, and general clean-up are all better when hot water is on hand.

The propane tanks work great as long as they are filled with propane gas.

Keeping a good check on the propane gas level will save you from a sudden trip to the station to get a refill.

It will run out quickly in the winter time due to the heating of your RV. Using the appliances on propane gas will use it up faster, also.


Somewhat Optional RV Appliances

Using an RV clothes washer will save you money over the course of time. It can be installed in your RV. Some have the set up already there. Some campers can have the washer and dryer installed upon purchase.

We have a washer/dryer combo. This is great to have when space is limited. It does both the washing and the drying in the same unit. It's pretty cool to have when the campground is full and the laundry room is being constantly used.


You know your clothes are getting clean, and sand free.

Also, you don't have to remember to check on them every few minutes.

Not to mention, they will be there when you get to them.

They won't disappear when you get ready to get them.

The right appliances will make your camping experience an easy one. Don't overlook the use of them.

If your camper didn't come with air conditioning or you are camping in a tent, a 12-volt air conditioner might just make your camping life much more pleasant, especially for sleeping.

In fact, there are all kinds of other 12-volt appliances that might make sense for your situation.  Check them out!
