Add almost any light fixture to your RV with Gustafson Interior Lights

The same types of interior design elements that you use in your home can be brought over for your RV as well. This can include the styles of fabrics and fixtures, as well as the colors used in the space. One such element is the use of lighting, as it can be used beyond a utilitarian function to simply make the space brighter. The style of the light fixtures, along with where you use them, can add to the overall atmosphere of your RV interior. The line of interior lights from Gustafson includes lamps to fit almost any application.
Antique Brass Lights

Ceiling lights are used to brighten a wide area, but there's no need to just settle for a basic light. This Antique Brass Ceiling Light creates a touch of elegance with its crystal shade and metal finish. Antique brass gives you a vintage look while still having modern convenience. Often times you will want to use fixtures in a similar style to create a coherent theme and tie things together. This is especially true in an RV interior when there is not a lot of separation in the interior spaces. To that end, the Gustafson Antique Brass Wall Light goes beautifully with the ceiling light. It brings in familiar design elements without being an exact copy of the ceiling light. Wall lights, also referred to as wall sconces, are perfect anywhere you need more illumination. Using two on either side of a feature can help draw attention to that feature as well as present a balanced appearance.
Satin Nickel Cosmetic Light
For a more modern taste, Gustafson has Satin Nickel, or Brushed Nickel, Cosmetic Lights. It comes in a strip of 3 bulbs and the lens is acrylic, with a white marble finish. Cosmetic lights are also called vanity lights, and provide the brightness you need in areas such as bathrooms. It's sleek design works well with a contemporary space, and gives you a more finished look than a bare bulb fixture.
The selection of lights available from Gustafson make it easy to go beyond a plain interior lighting fixture. It also gives you the ability to create a space inside your RV that fits your styles and tastes.

The TST Tire Pressure Monitoring System gives you real time results

TST Tire Pressure Monitoring System
Using a tire pressure monitoring system for your RV can give you the same benefits as the one you may have in your car. Tires that are not inflated correctly can lead to problems including flats or blowouts. Experiencing a blowout while driving could become a dangerous situation if you are unable to maintain control. Of course, a tire pressure monitoring system should also be able to give you the most up to date results, so you are always aware of the current state of your tires.
This TST Tire Pressure Monitoring System has the ability to provide you with current information. The sensors can transmit the temperature and pressure of up to 22 tires every two minutes. In the event that the tire is in danger of deflating, the sensors can give you continuous updates until the tire pressure is corrected or goes back to normal. When a tire does become under-inflated, both audio and visual indicators will alert you to the situation. The batteries are similar to watch batteries, and can be changed about once a year without having to replace the sensors. The flow through style of the sensors allow you to inflate the tire without needing to take them out. This monitoring system is removable, so you can conserve battery life while your RV is in storage.
Depending on where you live, this system can report numbers in Celsius or Fahrenheit, as well as PSI or KPa. It works in all kinds of weather, so there is no need to worry about rain or snow coming in contact with the sensors. Having a monitoring system for tire pressure can save you from the hassle and stress of running into an unwanted surprise.

Leaving the side patio awning exposed could lead to damage from the sun & other outside elements. Likewise, having to replace the fabric due to too much damage can become expensive. This Awning Pro-Tech Patio Awning Cover is designed to protect a rolled up awning by deflecting the sun and staying resistant to the weather. It does not take long to install, and is made from durable materials.
The cover comes in a kit of 5 pieces that can accommodate 16-20 foot lengths. Clips come with the kit hold the cover in place while your RV is in motion. When installed correctly, it will present a tight fit around the awning to keep it protected. The pieces simply fit around the awning, and are designed to overlap each other so there are no gaps left in between them. This also saves you from having to cut the pieces to fit the length.

Your awning can be extended with the cover in place, as the pieces will loosen for removal.

Also keep in mind that full size RV covers should not be used in conjunction with this awning cover. The Awning Pro-Tech can extend the life of your patio awning and keep you from having to make a costly replacement.

Adco Designer Aquashed RV Covers provide protection in moderate climates

Adco Designer Aquashed RV Cover
Keeping your RV covered while it is in storage helps to keep your vehicle from collecting dust and dirt while it is not in use. It also reduces the risk of becoming susceptible to scratches on the finish. Covering your RV is a good idea whenever it goes through a prolonged period without being used, particularly during the winter months. Different covers feature materials made for different uses, however, depending on the type of environment and the length of time the RV will stay covered. The Designer series of Aquashed covers from Adco provides a suitable solution for short term storage in moderate climates.
The Aquashed covers work well for areas with moist air and less extreme temperatures that do not receive a high amount of sun. The side panels are triple layered to block out the sun and rain. They also feature ventilation to prevent moisture from collecting inside, keeping mold and mildew from growing. The SFS AquaShed material is also triple layered and used on the top of the cover, while the sides are made from polypropylene. Other features include weighted straps and buckles that keep the wind from blowing the cover off, and zippered panels on the sides to allow you inside access to your RV while in storage.
These covers are available in various lengths for both Class A and Class C RVs. As part of the Designer series, they feature a two-tone design to give a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. When measuring the length, be sure to include the spare tire and the ladder.

Keep your RV cooler with the Fan-Tastic Power Vent

Fan-Tastic 2250 Power Vent
While the summer may be winding down, but for most of us the warmer weather is far from over. Making sure your RV stays ventilated is one way to keep the interior at a comfortable temperature. This is especially true on days when you do not wish to run your rooftop air conditioner. Maintaining proper ventilation is also a good way to combat odor build-up by circulating more fresh air inside. Powered vent fans provide a fast, easy way to generate fresh airflow into your RV. To that end, the Fan-Tastic 2250 Power Vent comes with several features to ensure that your motorhome remains comfortable.
The 2250 Power Vent is made to run as quietly as possible, and is designed to fit the standard cutout dimension of 14" square. The manual lift allows you to control the operation, while the fan can run at one of three different speeds. It has a thermostat, so the fan turn on when the inside temperature gets too high and shut off once it has cooled down. The 2250 has a reversible air flow, so the air is circulated in whatever direction you need, which is helpful if inside odors become a problem. This power vent is also intended to run without consuming an excess of power. It works quickly, so stale air does not linger inside for a long period of time. When closed, the 2250 is able to stay protected from outside elements. Whether you need to regulate the inside temperature, or simply clear the air, the Fan-Tastic 2250 is able to take care of the issue.
