3-in-1 NOAA radio, flashlight and charger must-have for RVers
This emergency hand-crank radio is a necessity for RVers. Keep it somewhere safe – you never know when it will come in handy. The 3-in-1 radio is also a bright LED flashlight and a smartphone charger. The radio can be charged via solar charging, hand cranking or a USB plug. You’ll want to buy one here.

Random RV thought
At this very moment, as you read this, thousands of people across North America are daydreaming about their next RV trip. Some are at work, others at home, some are working from home, others are just out for a morning stroll. Daydreaming about an RV trip is not as good as taking the actual trip, but it’s better than daydreaming about things like mowing a lawn or ironing clothes.
Website of the day
A pop-up camper to pull behind your bicycle
This isn’t so much a website as it is an article, but it’s too neat not to share. Check out the world’s smallest “home on wheels.”
Run your RV air conditioner with a small generator
When the temperature heats up and you’re boondocking with only a small portable generator for power, you’re out of luck running an air conditioner. That is, unless you have a SoftStartRV. It’s inexpensive, simple to install, and makes running your A/C possible. Learn more or order at a special discount.
