RV Camping Hacks That You Must Know About
Remember Where You Are At
When you change locations often, sometimes you might forget where you are at! Grab a dry erase board and when you arrive in a new campground. Write the name, address, phone number, and spot number of where you are at. That way, in the middle of the night if you need to help, you know where you are at! It is also good to take a photo of this so when you are recreating your trip you can remember all the stops you made.

Have you hit your head yet on your awning pole? Me too! Slip a pool noodle over the awning strut or slide outs to make it a little softer for the next time you run into it! Pick up some glow-in-the-dark tape and put strips on your stairs.
That way when you are coming back to your rig at night, you don't need to leave the lights on. Put motion sensor lights in cupboards or closets that will light up when you open the door – no need for electricity!

Pick up a collapsable laundry basket, line it with a garbage bag, and now you have an easy, light garbage can to use when outside. Most know this one already, but don't forget to use a hanging shoe organizer in your bathroom, especially if you have little to no space. You thought you lost remotes when you were in your regular house, remotes get lost twice as fast in an RV!
Make sure to velcro them down so you know exactly where there are (or should be) at all times. You know those plastic sleeves that fruit comes in? Slip them over your wine or beer bottles to prevent breakage. You can also use beer coozies to keep your glasses or bottles from rattling around. Who knew, right?

If mosquitoes or other insects might be a problem, suggest they take along a garlic bulb. Enjoying one garlic clove orally will certainly block all insect discomfort instantaneously. Never fails.
