Details: This commercial grade, wireless digital backup camera provides an impeccably clear picture with 7” TFT LCD widescreen and 1” thin adjustable base, making it easy to aim the screen in any direction you need. Equipped with a removable external antenna (that has long range signal), this camera is shock resistant, waterproof and comes with 11 high-powered IR LEDs which gains up to 50 feet of night vision. For use with 12V-24V DC electrical system, the camera comes with a cigarette lighter power adapter for the monitor.


Details: How many times have you endured slow WiFi at your RV campground? If you’re tired of snails-pace internet connection, opt for this WiFi range extender. Improve your coverage up to 300Mbps with this easy, compact wall-plug in WiFi booster. Equipped with external antennas for better coverage, you’ll never have to worry about slow internet again! It’s incredibly easy to set up and works well for video streaming and gaming.


Details: Here’s the deal, not everyone wants a generator. We get that. But if you desire a super quiet, incredibly popular and reliable model, this one’s for you. The EU3000iS operates at 49 to 58 db (A), which is less noise than a conversation held at normal voice level, making it the number one choice for camping (your neighbors will thank you). Fuel efficient (up to 20 hours on 3.4 gallons of fuel) and stacked with advanced inverter technology, you’ll receive clean and reliable power. There is an oil alert sensor, which means this generator will shut off automatically when low oil is detected. It also runs a wide variety of appliances including but not limited to the refrigerator, TV, blender, furnace and microwave.


Details: Whether your choice for solar comes from a desire to reduce your impact, or if you just want backup power in those frustrating times your RV battery is causing issues, investing in a solar set up is your option for power assurance. The Windy Nation Solar Kit comes with a 4 piece set of 100 watt polycrystalline solar panels, premium 30-amp LCD display solar charger controller with battery temperature sensor, 40 feet of UL listed 12 AWG solar cables, MC4 connectors, and all necessary hardware for installation. This solar kit will provide on average, 1600 watt hours (135 amp hours of charge) per day. The included inverter has two 2AWG battery cables for connection to a 12V battery, making inversion even easier!


Details: Known for its reliability, this tire pressure monitoring system does an excellent job providing tire pressure and temperature monitoring. The system is equipped with a high-pressure alarm, so you will know right away if your rig’s tires are in need of adjustments. Let this add on provide you the peace of mind you need when on your next RV trip. There is nothing that can derail a road trip like a blown tire.

Details: Now more than ever, RVers are living and working from the road full-time because the internet has created connectivity anytime, anywhere for the workspace. This can however cause intense frustration when on deadline and your connection times out, or the campground WiFi isn’t cutting it. Insert your personal mobile hotspot. Verizon’s 4G LTE delivers ultimate download speeds, up to 24 hours of battery life on a single charge, is equipped with a portable USB so you can charge your phone and it delivers secured, password protected WiFi. Huge bonus, this world device gives you easy internet access when traveling internationally.


Details: Don’t leave the RV lot without this RV accessory. This heavy-duty hose is 20 percent thicker than a standard drinking water hose making your drinking water safer, lead, BPA and phthalate free. Gone are the days of the taste of plastic in your drinking water and its strain-relief ends give it added durability, making it a long lasting investment. This hose is compliant with all federal and state level low lead laws.


Details: Let this be your go-to for a strong and durable leveling system. These interlocking blocks are simple to use and come with a ten year warranty. The modular designed levelers configure to fit any leveling function while withstanding up to 40,000 pounds. Simply set them into a pyramid to your needed height and drive straight onto the stack. Blocks come in a durable nylon bag making them easy to store.


Details: Over time your RV tires will wear and that dreaded day will come when you have to fork out a lot of money to replace them. We’re all about longevity at La Mesa RV, so we highly recommend getting the most use out of your tires. As simple as it sounds, RV wheel covers provide heavy-duty protection against sun damage. Classic Accessories promises that by using their product, “you’ll be protected with the easiest warranty in the industry. If your product fails within the warranty period, look for us online and take advantage of our hassle-free warranty program supported by our US-based customer service team.”


Details: Let us introduce you to your newest DIY RV hack – Reflectix. This inexpensive reflective insulation is perfect for those sweltering spring and summer days to keep your RV temperature from rising. Simply place a few double-sided picture hanging strips on the four corners of each window pane and pop on Reflectix to allow the insulation to reflect sunlight away from your RV. The product is fiber free, environmentally safe and easy to install!

    Why do you recommend both a WiFi extender and a hotspot? As for the rest of the list, we agree!

      Hi Michelle,

      We wanted to share multiple options for RVers while on the road – for those who want to use their own network (hotspot) and those who want a boost when using the internet at their campground. By no means does one person necessarily need both, but they are two great options most of our RV lifestyle explorers swear by. Hope this helped to clarify! Happy trails!

    Why do you say leveling blocks when the Anderson leveler is alot easier than the blocks especially when coupled with the levelmate pro?

      Hi Gary! You are certainly correct. The Anderson leveler is a great option for a leveling system. We consulted with our customers and found many of them personally use leveling blocks, but that’s not to say they’re the only option. Thank you for sharing your your set up and we’ll be sure to include both the Anderson leveler and Levelmate pro in future RV accessory round ups. Happy trails!
