Camper Parts and Supplies you'll need for your Winter RV Emergency Kit

You’re probably already aware of the fact that you need to pack an emergency kit whenever you are traveling during the winter. When that travel involves an RV, you’ll need a few extra items that wouldn't be necessary if you were traveling by automobile. Here are some camper parts and supplies that should be included in your winter RV emergency kit in order to ensure you are prepared for any situation that arises.
Basic Necessities
Your emergency kit should contain some of the basic items that would be needed in your car. A few of these things include:

  • Drinking water
  • Non-perishable food
  • Manual can opener
  • Flashlight with extra batteries
  • Warning triangles/flares
  • Fully charged cell phone
  • Lighter or Waterproof matches
  • Blankets and extra clothing
  • Kitty litter or sand for traction
  • Folding shovel

RV Repair Items
You’ll also need some extra items on hand in order to make performing simple repairs on your recreational vehicle easy to do. A few things you should have readily available include:
  • Wheel chocks
  • Hose repair kit with tape
  • Emergency tire repair kit
  • Jumper cables
  • Duct and electrical tape
  • Extra fuses
  • High lift jack
  • Tow chain or strap

Although not required, you may want to have some additional items on hand just in case you find yourself needing an extended stay at an RV park while waiting on road conditions to clear up a bit. For example, you could find pie irons and hot dog forks to be extremely useful in the event you need to cook over an open fire. In fact, a portable fire ring could come in handy as well, since many locations may not have them out in the off season. Having a few lanterns and some board games on hand can help you pass the time while you are waiting on the snow to clear.
Here at the RVupgrade Store, we have everything you’ll need to make winter traveling a breeze. To see the selection of items we carry, visit us at rvupgradestore.com or contact us.
