Although April is typically seen as a rainy month, that doesn’t mean it should keep you from taking your RV on its next adventure! Preparation is key to keeping your RV weather proofed for whatever may come your way. Here are 3 must-have items to equip your RV for the rainy season: Retractable Awning While most RVs are equipped with an awning, it’s likely the quality is subpar and will suffer damage, especially in inclement weather. Upgrading to a quality, durable,retractable awning will make a huge difference when it comes to unfavorable weather. The awning should be sized properly for your RV, it should be easy to open and stow,and lastly,it should be a strong material that will last whatever the weather may bring. Bonus –find an awning that you can add panels to for a completely rain free room! Shoe Storage Save yourself the footprint cleanup by keeping wet and muddy shoes outside! A storage bench is a great way to utilize space under your awning. It provides an additional seating option for you or your guests plus the perfect place to store your shoes before entering your RV. A win –win! SmartPlug When it comes to weatherproofing, it’s important to think of your park power systems. Is your electrical connection secure from water damage? SmartPlug is an innovative park power system that features triple weatherproof seals that will keep your connection dry and corrosion-free no matter how rainy it may be. Soon enough the flowers will be sprouting and this “wet”month will be a thing of the past! Happy April!
