Why Choose the Waste Master RV Sewer Management System

Well we all know that this is a necessary job that must be done, but it doesn't have to be messy and disgusting while doing it. Check out the Waste Master RV Sewer Management System that will make this a much simpler process that you won't dread doing during your camping trip. 
What makes this sewer hose so special? Well have you ever had a hose that has sprung a leak or a fitting that became loose, then you really had a messy situation on your hands. This sewer hose is as some call it "bulletproof", it resists abrasions or punctures and has bonded cuffs to form a lock tight seal, so there is no chance that waste will drip out. The helical coils are perfectly designed on the outside, leaving the inside smooth, so you won't have to worry about the hose getting clogged and there is still plenty of room for expansion. It also comes with an industrial grade cam lock connector that will give you a leak resistant connection to your sewer outlet. This same design of fitting has been used for a long time in the liquid transportation industry including with fire hose fittings, proving these will have a strong and reliable seal. Last it also has a 90 degree nozzle that makes it easy to hook up and also with the shut off valve makes it so it won't empty until you are ready. Also if you are emptying and the ground sewer backs up you can quickly shut it off. The nozzle also has a clear port for viewing, this way you know exactly when you have fully emptied your holding tank. 
If you are tired of having to buy new sewer hoses all the time, shop RVupgrades.com for a Waste Master RV Sewer Management System today and you will never have to buy another hose again. Make this the last hose you ever purchase.

Geocel Expanding Foam Sealant

Having an RV, camper or trailer can be a big expense, but fixing issues shouldn't always have to cost you an arm and a leg. If you have a leak in the roof or have a draft coming from the windows and doors, check out the Geocel Expanding Foam Sealant, which is designed specifically for fixing leaks, gaps, cracks and stops air infiltration around your RV.  
This sealant is made of a durable polyurethane foam and when sprayed into an area it will expand from 2 1/2 to 3 times to fill the gap. Using this product makes it easy to conserve energy, especially when used to seal and insulate windows and doors. You won't have to worry about the cold getting in or the heat escaping anymore. For those other leaks including the roof, it will seal the hole keeping water, bugs and anything else from getting inside and possibly creating damage. It is simple to use, for the best results store and use at room temperature. Fill the lower part of the gap first, you will only need to fill about 40 percent as the foam will expand filling the rest. Once filled do not touch as it can collapse, but it will be tack free/no longer sticky in 5 minutes and cures or sets firmly in approximately 24 hours. If foam is used on the exterior surface of your RV, you may want to paint it when it dries, for protection as it is not UV resistant. There is no maintenance required, if the seal gets damaged, just scrape it off and reseal.   
The Geocel Expanding Foam Sealant is one of the many great RV accessories that are perfect for fixing certain issues around your RV. To find out about more visit our site at RVupgrades.com and discover many different ways to take care of your home on wheels.

Keep your RV Protected this Winter with a Durable Cover

Winter is right around the corner and for everyone that lives in a colder climate area, they know how important it is to properly store your vehicle through these bad weather months. In a previous article we discussed about what you needed to winterize your RV water system, that is very important too but after you do that and lock up the RV tight the next step would be to cover it up tightly to keep the weather from damaging your vehicle. That is why we have a protective cover to fit just about any type of RV or trailer you could possibly have. 
What can a cover do for your RV, trailer or camper? A cover does not have to be just for use in the winter time. It is also important to use anytime you will not be using your home away from home for a long period of time. Not everyone goes camping or travels every single weekend, some people only go a few times out of the year. For all the time it is not in use a cover will protect it from pine needles, leaves, dust, dirt and much more debris, keeping it clean for the next time you travel. For winter time it will keep the snow from building up on the top and adding extra weight possibly damaging the roof. By keeping the snow off it will also prevent damage to the seams when the snow melts and possibly refreezes. Don't let damages to your RV from the environment and weather, cost you a fortune in repairs. 
There are a couple brands and many different kinds of models that we carry in our wide selection. The two popular brands are Adco and Classic Accessories. Within these brands are many different kinds of model fitments including Class A, Class B, Class C, 5th Wheels, Hi-Lo Trailer, Pop-up Trailer, Travel Trailer and Slide-In Camper. Then we have other covers for accessories including Propane Tanks, Windshields, Air Conditioners and Tires.
To choose the perfect cover for your home away from home, you have to first look up the model you have. For instance if you have a Class A RV you want to look in that category and choose the one that will fit the length size of your vehicle. Then you need to decide what type of material you want it to be made out of. If you need one that is great for all seasons, check out the Adco Tyvek cover or for one that is for moderate weather conditions go with one of the single layer Adco brands or PermaPro.
A RV cover is one of the many accessories you may need when winterizing or just protecting the exterior of your home on wheels, visit our site at RVupgrades.com to see all the accessories we have to offer.
