Yes they are. I use them in my home as well for the freezer and fridge in the garage.

Mice and rats can get into your RV through through the smallest of holes. Steel wool has been suggested to fill those holes...which works great....except that it rusts! This copper mesh serves the same purpose but is rustproof and very hard for mice to chew through.

The 9 bottles are a good thing. Won't go any further,,,,

Here is the other practical item no RVer should be without.

Never knew this existed!

Do you have a modified sine wave inverter in your RV? Then you know there are certain devices and electronics that are NOT compatible. Many electric blankets with digital controls top the list of things that are destroyed by the MSW inverter.

This electric blanket is different! It uses a brick power supply to change the 120 VAC to 18 VDC. This has other benefits as well....smaller wires, more safety, more comfort. It has been reported to work well with MSW inverters. And if you have a pure sine wave inverter, it works fine as well!

When winterizing the RV there is always that pesky water line that feeds the ice maker. I'm thinking for some people that ice maker is more trouble than it's worth. Why not try these? I'm thinking they would work just as well for iced tea, lemonade, sodas, even ice water! When you're done, just a quick rinse and put back in the freezer to chill again! They last forever! They will even work if your freezer is not able to freeze water....just get them as cold as possible, and replace when they warm up!

Have you put this on a kill-a-watt to find its power consumption?

No, I haven't yet.......but it's got to use less power than other forms of RV heat....as its only heating the people under the blanket!

Just saw this on the RV Travel newsletter I get. Looks like it could save you from a bruised head if the slide is over basement compartments!

GPS

A good GPS is a must for me on any long journey - RV or otherwise. So I picked up a Garmin RV 760LMT. If I trust Garmin in airplanes I expect to trust them just as much in an RV.

Top 10 items you should carry in a new RV.

An alarm system is one thing that's probably low on most people's list ......until they become a victim. While your RV is in storage it's especially vulnerable. While you are traveling, smoke and fire is always a concern....even more so if you leave the RV parked while you eat, shop, go siteseeimg, etc. what if you have pets aboard?

This cellular wireless alarm system works anywhere. It also has smoke detectors which can communicate with the base device. Once you move somewhere it only takes less than a minute to setup. Email and text alerts can also be setup so you will know the status of the unit and your RV. It has a 20 hour backup battery, but normally relies on 120vac.
