Need supplies

On the road... need to buy RV antifreeze and other misc supplies. How to find a quick source without having to call or drive around? Do you go to the closest Walmart or what do you look for? So many of the RV listings are for dealerships of varying help. We are currently in Scottsdale, Arizona

We Google "RV Supplies" along with the name of the nearest city. Walmart is a good source for basic supplies.

WM is a great source for general RV supplies. If you need more specific items like Transynd trans fluid or the extened life diesel coolant, you'll have to go else where.

It depends. If yours is a bus than it should take a special anti-freeze with an additive. Double check what it needs!! Ours does. It takes exactly what the semi's take so therefore a truck stop for us for the anti-freeze. As for the rest of the "misc" stuff we get from various places, very rarely do we take a trip to walmart.
For parts for the engine, most of the time we can get the same thing from Auto Zone or the like and for much cheaper.
For replacing the thin-lites lights over to LED we shopped around, got some from Marine Beam for a straight switchover but for the others Thom got LED strips and is experimenting with different ones to decide which he likes better for light.
So therefore it depends on what "misc" you are talking about.
