Great Motorhome Accessories for Cold Weather Road Trips
Right about this time of year, many of us tend to come down with a case of cabin fever. On a high note, it’s not incurable. All you need to do is set your sights on a warm destination and grab the following motorhome accessories:
Two-Way Radios with NOAA Channels
Two-way radios with NOAA channels, like the Microtalk FRS/GMRS, can really give winter campers a piece of mind. They feature phenomenal reception, battery-saving options and the ability to keep on top of changing road conditions. Pair it with a state-of-the-art, RV GPS system and you should be good to go.
Engine/Tank Monitoring Systems
Engine and tank monitoring systems can also make your winter trips less stressful. Two top brands to consider in that regard are Silverleaf and Seelevel. Silverleaf manufactures engine monitoring systems and Seelevel produces tank monitoring systems. Between the two, they’ll ensure that you know precisely what’s going on with your motorhome’s most important components at all times.
Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems/Portable Compressors
Speaking of system monitoring, it’s a well known fact that tire pressure fluctuates due to temperature changes. So you may want to invest in a tire pressure monitoring system, portable compressors and JR Products Snow/Mud Grip Mats. That way, you can stay on top of your motorhome’s tire issues too.
Battery MINDers/Booster Cables
A motorhome’s battery can also act up in cold weather. Therefore, it’s always a great idea to store road flares, a battery MINDer and booster cables in your RV as well. One of our favorites is the BatteryMINDer Model 2012-AGM. It works perfectly in cold weather and does more than just charge the battery.
Last on our list are portable generators and heaters. They are great to have if the campground that you’re visiting loses power. Of course they could be used at rest stops, parking lots and other areas too. Some of the portable generators and heaters are designed for outdoor use. Others are best left inside of the motorhome.
