Digital Line Moniter
Every RVer should invest in some type of digital voltmeter that plugs directly into a 120-volt outlet in your RV. There are several types available and they are inexpensive compared to the repair costs for damaged electrical equipment and appliances. I recommend one that can test campground polarity, measure AC line voltage and, if you have a generator, measure AC frequency. ~ Mark Polk                 Available at Camping World

Portable Surge Guard: Available in your choice of 30 Amp or 50 Amp- Surge protection is protection against voltage spikes on power lines.  These voltage spikes can cause severe damage to electronic and electrical equipment. With today’s RV coming equipped with sophisticated and sensitive electronic equipment, a few short seconds of faulty power can damage appliances and electronics in the RV like stereos, satellite systems, microwaves, televisions, refrigerators and computers.  The TRC Surge Guard family of power protection devices are designed to protect your RV’s electrical system and sophisticated electronics from the dangers of faulty electrical power.

Surge Guard offers total protection with three individual safety circuits. It checks the power pedestal for damaging mis-wire conditions and has a warning indicator for reverse polarity, dangerous current on ground wire and pedestal mis-wiring. It offers Solid state full mode surge protection and Automatic over and under voltage protection. Standard surge protectors do not provide protection for over and under voltage or open neutral conditions, The surge guard is weather-resistant, so you simply plug it in to the power pedestal and plug the RV power cord into the surge guard.

When your RV has thousands of dollars worth of electronic appliances and equipment it only makes sense to protect your investment. One faulty wiring situation or power surge at the campground can cost you 3, 4 or 5 times the cost of a surge guard surge protector.

They are easy to install or you can have your RV dealer install them for you. They fit over the existing vent covers on your RV and allow you to leave the vents open even when it’s raining outside.

Awning tie downs help protect your patio awning. A strong gust of wind can damage your awning very quickly, and can be costly to repair. Any wind gusts over twenty miles per hour can cause extensive damage to the awning and to the RV. You should never leave the awning out unattended. One more tip: When putting your awning out, lower one end to allow the water to run off in the event it should start raining. ~ Mark Polk

These lights come in all shapes and sizes to suit your personal preference.

Harrells, NC – December 2010 — RV Education 101, founded in 1999, announced the launch of a new RV consumer training site today. The URL is www.rvconsumer.com. Mark Polk, founder and co-owner of RV Education 101 said, “We have worked on this RV consumer site for several months now, and are extremely excited to finally launch it.

 Tagged as “The Ultimate RV Education Center” Polk says, “This site is a culmination of all of our RV training efforts over the past decade, and is a one stop RV training site for the entire RV consumer’s training needs. One day I realized that if I consolidated all of our RV training material into one RV training site, it would in fact be the premier RV education center.”

 The RV training material Polk is referring to is his 18-RV instructional DVD’s, 13-published RV E-books, 3-published RV books, 4-RV online training programs, hundreds of published RV articles, RV product installation videos and RV product reviews.

 Dawn Polk, co-owner and marketing director, said, “Our thought behind this new site was to organize the vast field of RV’s and RVing into six major categories and offer the RV consumer invaluable information in each of these areas. The six categories are: RV consumer training, RV consumer buying, RV consumer safety, RV consumer products, RV consumer articles and advice and last but certainly not least, enjoying your RV. To help promote our new site and to introduce our RV videos on demand online training program we are offering a free RV safety e-course to anybody that would like to take it. You can visit www.rvconsumer.com for more details on the free RV safety e-course.

 Polk’s other RV educational sites are www.rveducation101.com and www.rvuniversity.com. The primary focus of these RV training sites has been to educate RV owners on how to properly and safely use and maintain their RV, using visual and written training materials. RV Education 101 has helped educate more than a quarter of a million RV enthusiasts over the past decade.
