Propane Tank Gas Level Indicator

Tank Sensor – Magnetic Mount to Tank Bottom

This is the coolest thing!  All you have to do is stick the sensor magnetically to the bottom of the tank, and with the included smartphone app, it tells you to the single percentage value, what the level of your DOT propane tank is.  It will work with 20lb, 30lb, and 40lb RV tanks.

Motorhome Extend-a-Stay

For those of us with a motorhome, when we stay for more than a few weeks in the cold weather, the ASME propane tank empties quickly!  That means breaking camp to get the tank filled unless you have one of these.

All it takes is removing the hose from the regulator that attaches to the ASME tank and inserting this device between that connection.  It took me five minutes to install as I did not need to make any hose changes or regulator mounting moves.  It depends on your motorhome and how much hose they gave you to allow the extension.

We added a four-foot hose extension to one of the ports, not the grill port, and use a 20lb DOT tank.  That gives us almost five gallons of propane.  At over ninety-thousand BTUs of propane supply per gallon, we can easily augment our ASME tank and not have to break camp when the colder weather sets in.

Even in Florida, Texas, and Arizona, during the winter, the propane needs are more demanding than other times of the year.  So, problem solved!  And the tank is easy to carry with us.  A fully filled 20lb tank weighs thirty-five pounds while a 30lb tank weighs fifty-five pounds.  That was our determining factor in auxiliary tank size.

Portable Air Compressor

We all know the importance of correct tire pressure when it comes to traveling in an RV!  Pam and I check out pressure each morning of travel by just the simple act of turning on our Tire Pressure Monitor System.  If there has been a drastic change in temperature then we have to get the portable compressor out and add air, or in some cases let the air out due to the warmer climates we travel to.

It is important to have a quick and easy source to get the job done quickly so when it comes time to adding air to your RV tires, you will.  To ignore a low tire pressure condition will shorten the life of your RV tires and leave you in an unsafe travel condition.  This potentially could result in time spent on the side of the road with a blown tire.  So, be prepared!

Wireless Battery Backup Camera System for Trailer Hitch Up

I just found this cool little device.  I have the hand-held version, but now it is available in the blue tooth version that works with smartphones.  When backing to the trailer this is always a needed device.  I found it invaluable in getting the 5th wheel hooked to the truck!  I have used it to back into sites where I had blind spots.  I have put it in the trailer during travel to see what goes on when the roads get rough.  There are so many applications!

Heated RV Water Hose

Having a heated RV water hose can make full time RV living in the winter more comfortable!  Instead of having to disconnect and use the onboard water tank and water pump, a heated RV water hose can allow usage of the RV park’s city water service.

We recommend the 50′ length because some RV park city water connections are located toward the rear of the site therefore requiring a longer hose.  This is a heavy-duty hose designed for winter camping!
