Aluminess Products, Inc.

Aluminess is a California based company that has been in the industry for over 12 years. Known for their innovative aluminum products made for a number of automobiles, the brand is revered for their designs, ingenuity and utility. When Aluminess made their way to Phoenix to showcase their aluminum products, we were hooked. Here’s what we learned:

– Aluminess products are Made in America!
– Aluminess products made for RV’s include front bumpers, rear bumpers, roof racks, side ladders, tire racks, light bars and front receiver hitches.
– Why aluminum? Aluminum is one third the weight of steel, doesn’t rust, is designed for strength and offers a better performance from suspension, alignment, brakes, tires and fuel efficiency, making it ideal for RV’s and motorhomes.
– To learn more about each specific Aluminess product, check out our recent post that covers All RV Products Made by Aluminess.

Solar power for RV, invertors, panels, batteries


Go Power

For 23 years, GoPower has been a trusted leader in the solar technology and power inverter markets. If you’re interested in the many benefits of taking your rig solar or if you like the option to boondock and still being able to use your lights, refrigerator and chargers, the transition to solar just might be for you. GoPower products include solar and inverter systems as well as starter kits that offer mobile power solutions for wherever grid power is inaccessible, unavailable or unsustainable. Solar is cost-effective, low maintenance and environmentally friendly, making it a great option for any RV lifestyle. We’ve included some fun solar facts and a highlight of the starter products you need to know about:

– One in three new RVs are already pre-wired for GoPower solar kits, making it easier and faster to install.
– Going solar prolongs battery lifespan, removes need for generator fuel and saves up to $60/night in site hook-ups.
– Solar kits cost as little as a portable generator and are maintenance-free.
– Looking for a power inverter? A power inverter takes 12-volt DC power from your RV batteries or solar system and converts it to 120-volt AC to power your standard appliances. In RV’s it’s used to power small appliances and electronics.
– Inverters are rated in watts and almost all electrical appliances have a corresponding rating. Check out options for inverters on their website to find the right GoPower inverter for you.
