Replacement Compartment Locks

Did you know that most RV manufacturers use the same key pattern for storage compartment locks on every RV they build? Look at your RV keychain. If your storage compartment key is stamped CH-751, then almost every RVer has a key to your RV! This is probably okay if all

Micro-Blaze Septic

I’m going to step out on that proverbial limb and talk about a controversial subject: holding tank treatments. It seems that everyone has a favorite toilet chemical. They are also certain that the inferior substitute you are using is nowhere near as cheap, effective, safe or easy to use as

Universal Plate Repair Kit

Let’s talk about the universal plate repair kit. No, it’s not for dinner plates, or upper dental plates, but rather for plates where gas spring door hardware attaches. Many RVs have gas springs on their outer compartment and bay doors, and, all too often, a strong gust of wind (or
