RV Lifestyle,Tips & Tools

Stuck at home yet longing for a little RV time? Take advantage of the opportunity to get caught up on your RV essentials so that you are ready to hit the road at a moment’s notice.

Catching Up on The RV Essentials:

Here is my list of RV essentials that I do regularly when I am stuck at home and dreaming of RVing. Prepping the RV for the next big adventure feels great and keeps me geared up and ready to roll!

Health and Safety Items:

  • Check the expiration date of fire extinguishers.
  • Throw out any expired medicines and make a restock list of your essentials.
  • Review your First Aid kit and make sure that it is appropriately stocked.
  • Grab your partner and do headlight and turn signal check. Replace any burnt-out bulbs.
  • Check the air pressure in your tires and add more if needed.

Kitchen and bath:

  • Remove any expired foods.
  • Refill soap dispensers.
  • Review cleaning products and remove any items that you have not used on your trips.
  • Restock with any new items that you wished you had on your last few trips. I keep a list in my phone notes so that I can add to it when I think about it.
  • Add or replace nonslip shelf liner if needed.


  • Go through your cabinets and pull out any items that you haven’t used in your past couple of trips. Think minimalism here – if you don’t use it or love it, get rid of it!
  • Remove all of the items from your underbelly storage. You wouldn’t believe what gets stashed and forgotten about!
  • Do any minor repairs such as tightening loose screws, repairing screen tears.
  • Replace any interior bulbs that have burnt out.
  • Apply slide-out lubricant to ensure smooth operation.
  • Clean, clean, clean! Now is the time to detail every nook and cranny of the interior and if you are up to it, a thorough wash and wax of the exterior!
