15 Little Things to Remember to Pack for Your Big RV Trip

• RV Lifestyle

Here's a list of little things to remember that make a big difference on the road.

Sometimes the smallest things are the most important! 

A tool kit, water filter, and portable speaker that can fit in your hand. They may not sound like they have something in common, but they do. 

They are important, albeit small, items that you will not want to miss on your next trip!

15 Little Things to Remember Before You Hit the Road

In the RV Lifestyle Facebook group, one of our followers is completing an RV build to take a great family trip soon. He asked our followers for advice on the "little things" he should take with him on the trip. 

He received a lot of great input, and I thought it would make for a very useful post. So here it is! 

I have written in the past about 7 must-haves for your first RV trip. However, I am expanding on that post to include these other "small things" the group recommended.  

Just because something is small does not mean it is not important. In order to remember all the things you need for your next camping excursion, you may want to keep a checklist. 

The following are important items that you can add to your list!

1. Basic Tool Box

It is always a good idea to have a small tool kit on hand in your RV. You never know when you might need a screwdriver or wrench or to hit something with a hammer! What are the little things to remember to put in your RV toolbox?

This is definitely one of those things you'll kick yourself for not having if you end up needing it. 

2. RV Surge Protector

Protect your RV from electrical threats with a surge protector. That way a power surge or low voltage issues will not cause harm to your rig's electrical system. 

This small investment can save your whole electrical system!

Our RV has a surge protector built-in. If yours doesn't, I recommend you get one to go between the power cord and the pedestal. In older campgrounds, there are a lot of pedestals with bad connections that can damage tur RV's electrical system and your appliances.

We can recommend the Southwire Surge Guard, model 34930.

When you plug in the other end of the cord to the shore connector on the RV, lock it in place. With ours, it's a turn to the right. We also have a locking wheel on the plug to make it seven more secure.
