Keep Your Camper Cleaner With This RV Secret

There is nothing better than taking your RV or camper on a big adventure. Couples and families choose every year to drive to their favorite local destination and camp out, while others head off across the entire country (sometimes even venturing into Canada or Mexico). While all of this driving is the reason behind buying your RV in the first place, it sure gets dusty and dirty along the way.
As well, the spacious interior of your camper can start to feel small and crowded in those hours between a day’s driving and bedtime. Often, your family members or pets spent most of the day relaxing in the back of the RV, perhaps playing some games and getting out for rest stops, but once you park for the evening, it is time to stretch your legs and spend a bit of time outside. It can be difficult to find a clean, safe space to do this when you are living out of your RV.

5 Fantastic Ways to Keep Odors at Bay in your RV

Have you ever gone RV'ing and encountered unpleasant odors lurking in your home on wheels? Perhaps the nose wrinkling odors sprung up after cooking a fish dinner or maybe forgetting to take out the garbage from the last trip which was several weeks ago. It could even be originating from an unruly black tank or a load of dirty clothes the kids hid under the sleeper sofa. Either way, there are fantastic products available that can help you get rid of the stink in a jiffy. Here’s a look at five RV Accessories that are our absolute favorites:
#1: Maxxair Maxxfan Deluxe Ventilator
Looking for an interior ventilation system that is powerful, versatile, durable and easy to operate? Then Maxxair Maxxfan Deluxe Ventilator may just be the ideal for your situation. It features a 10 speed fan that’s capable of circulating 900+ cubic feet of air per minute. As far as versatility goes, it can be used as an exhaust, intake or ceiling fan. We also happen to love the flush mounted keypad, removable insect screen and warranties that come along with it.
#2: Camco Cyclone RV Sewer Vent
If the stink is coming from your campers holding tank, Camco’s Cyclone RV Sewer Vent would a wise investment too make. What we like about the vent is that it is simple to install and requires no electricity. It operates on wind power instead. So it will remain an efficient and effective method of odor control no matter where you decide to park your RV.
For extra added odor protection, you may want to think about pairing the Cyclone RV Sewer Vent with Kronen Premium Holding Tank Treatment.  After trying so many different brands of black tank chemicals we have found Kronen's to be the most effective in eliminating odors and dissolving solids.  It utilizes a potent combination of nature's naturally occurring micro-organisms, that are engineered to break down and liquefy organic materials leaving you with a completely odorless liquid.

#3: Air Conditioner Filters
Replacing your RV’s air conditioner filters often can also aid in keeping odors generated by the presence of mildew, mold and dirt at a minimum. Allergy4 makes several great, anti-microbial filters that would be ideal for use with an RV system. Among them are products designed to be used with the Duo-Therm Brisk Air/Quick Cool and Coleman Mach Series air conditioners.
#4: Odor Eliminating Sprays/Canisters
Odor eliminating sprays and canisters are another set of products beloved by our RV parts supplier pros. Each one is designed to abolish scents from the air as well as fabrics. This includes odors generated by pets, cooking activities, holding tanks, clogged drains and garbage cans.

There are also products like the Fridge It Odor Eliminator and Camco RV Stainless Steel Trash Can that may help too. The eliminator gets placed inside of the refrigerator to prevent the transfer of food odors and gases. The trash can, on the other hand, features a secure lid and a removable insert that will help to keep garbage odors from wafting throughout the RV.
#5: HEPA RV Vacuum Bags
Last but not least, HEPA vacuum bags are worth investing in for your Dirt Devil CV1500 RV vacuum. Some disposable HEPA vacuum bags, like those made by Dirt Devil, can help remove smoke related particles that contribute towards odors. These replacement vacuum bags capture 99.97% of all particles .3 microns and smaller including common allergens and mold.
