RV Updates - 3 Projects You Should Do Now

RV updates and projects don't have to be scary.  They can be easier than you think to do and will you money!

If you have a little time on your hands, now is the time to tackle a project or two that you might have been putting off.  Use that time to save some money and pull out a few tools for those upgrades that can make a big difference in your RV.  Over time, we have gotten pretty brave and are willing to do both big and small projects.  Today I'm sharing three that can easily be completed at home!

RV Updates - 3 Projects You Should Do Now

The Oxygenics Showerhead will give you better water flow and pressure in your RV shower.

1.  New Showerhead

If you are looking for an easy project or update, this is it.  Oxygenics makes several showerheads for RVs.  These provide a better water flow experience overall.  You simply remove the existing shower head and hose and replace it with the new one.  Done!  Many people say this is one of the first things that they do with a new RV.  We were so happy to just have a bathroom and not to use the bathhouse that we didn't care.  However, it does make a difference and anyone can make this switch.  Plus, it is an inexpensive update.

RVLock Keyless Entry can be installed in less than 30 minutes and works like a charm.

2.  RVLock Keyless Entry

RVLock provides a keyless entry on your RV that you program specifically for you.  The kit does include a wireless key fob and two additional back up keys.  It took me about 30 minutes to remove the existing lock and install the new one.  Other than a drill to remove the screws, this update didn't require any other tools.  This update is well worth the money, and you will wonder why it took you so long to make this change.

Our Alpine Slide Awning from Carefree of Colorado was a great update to our RV, and we did it ourselves!

3.  Slide Awning

We installed an Alpine Slide Awning from Carefree of Colorado.  This project will require two people to do the job along with some ladders.  However, if you are handy, this project is something you can do yourself.  We did it and love the results.  It will save you money in the long haul, and that is one of the main reasons I like to complete projects myself.  

The main thing to remember here is that you will need to plan your project and take your time.  Don't get in a rush.  Also, you are going to be drilling into the slide on the RV to put the awning rail up.  Measure.  Work slow.  Be sure to seal each hole with some GeoFlex or another RV sealant to be sure that everything remains airtight.  You could easily do this project in an afternoon.  

The mattress update in our RV didn't require any skills other than measuring and was well worth the money!

Bonus Project - Mattress Replacement

If you aren't handy or just don't want a project of any kind, replace your RV mattress.  This is hands down one of the best things that you could ever do besides the previous three.  And it takes zero skills except being able to measure for your new mattress.  We have replaced our Murphy Bed and bunk end mattress with a Tochta custom mattress.  These mattresses are amazing and worth every penny.  I cannot tell you how dreamy they are to sleep on!  Every time we camp, we fall into bed and fall in love all over again.  You can use my coupon code to get $25 off of your purchase.

We love a project at our house.  I love projects more than my better half.  I have repaired the washer and dryer, installing ceiling fans, and lights to name a few over the past few weeks.  So, I'm not shy about grabbing those tools and getting a job done.  I like the satisfaction of completing a task and saving money while doing it.  And this is a great time to get handy!

I'd love to hear from you if you have tackled some DIY RV Updates.  It's a big-time confidence booster when you can do it yourself.  And, I think it makes me a better camper overall.  I'm not afraid of what will happen when we get out on the road.  If something goes wrong, God forbid, I feel like we can handle many issues as they arise because we are willing to do things ourselves.

Until next time...
