Electronic Gear, Gizmos & Gadgets For RVing – 12 LYRV Must Haves

See the full Electronic Gear and Gadgets blog post for links to various products and my reviews – https://www.loveyourrv.com/electronic-gear-and-gadgets-for-rving-my-12-must-haves/

I’ve installed, reviewed, and tested lots of different electronic gear and gadgets over almost ten years of full-time RVing. Some stuff worked out better than others, and some were just toys. To help out new RVers, I’ve decided to go through all my RV electronics and come up with a list of what I feel have been twelve must-haves.

I didn’t start my RVing adventures with many of these items but have acquired them over the years and now would not want to part with them. Basically, I would want to replace these things if, god forbid, our fifth wheel was stolen, burned, or a total write-off.

    Maybe this should be re-titled: Ray Must Have Electronic Gadgets. 😉

  2. PRIVATE SECTOR 042 on May 4, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    Several several several several several my God stop saying several.
    Just give us actual information

  3. Anthony Hitchings on May 4, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    why so much need for all the security cameras?

  4. Charles Christensen on May 4, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Great list. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Downsizing Makes Cents on May 4, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Hey Ray, great list of must have products. I bought my ezeetire monitor after watching your video a year and a half ago. The display is awesome and the battery goes forever on a charge. I don’t know how anybody tows a trailer without a tpms. Larry

  6. rick dees on May 4, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Every new gadget is thought to be a plus when first purchased. It’s only after some time do the one’s not worth the cost and effort to install become evident. By then a channel would rather not admit the truth after doing a video about how great it was the first few days they owned it. How about a video on ten gadgets not worth buying? Wouldn’t that be just as or more important to know information? Sadly that kind of advice is typically "forboden" by YT channels and that makes it even more informative, imo.

  7. Keith Maddox on May 4, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    Thanks for the update on the products that you use

  8. BADGE on May 4, 2021 at 11:54 pm

  9. timmy tool on May 4, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    Great vid, been camping for years without all this stuff, but time to make life easier and I like gadgets!

  10. Kim Crawford on May 4, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    Thanks for this Ray, will be looking for the Noco booster for sure, and am hunting down the Ivation dehumidifier, likely going to winter in Victoria next season… if things get better we will be in position to head south.

  11. Crazy Man on May 4, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    Great video Ray. I am one of the many who enjoy your videos and all the help you give. Hope all is going well for you on Vancouver Island. I am in Zeeland, Michigan just a short drive by plane away. Lol. Cheers

  12. Ram 4570 on May 5, 2021 at 12:00 am

    Not buying any of this

  13. dextersp1 on May 5, 2021 at 12:00 am

    A couple of things that might be helpful adds to your subscribers are: Sat’l TV providers, Broadcast TV antenna improvements, Radio reception improvements, data plans for RVers. Just some ideas while you are in Canada.

  14. Dennis Wintjes on May 5, 2021 at 12:02 am

    Thanks Ray! Like #1.7K+

    Badge sent me – Great video.

  17. Jason Beamish on May 5, 2021 at 12:05 am

    Ray this thing is a strong door latch wow. Way better than the plastic one that rots and breaks.
    Just got it this am and very impressed. FYI

  18. Drew Griffiths on May 5, 2021 at 12:07 am

    Wow, how iconic – I presume those are saguaro cactuses (cacti?). They look great in the opening shots; kudos.

  19. pamnchip on May 5, 2021 at 12:10 am

    One of the things I like most about camping or RVing is getting away from all of the gadgets and crap we accumulate in everyday life. This video, although it has a couple good ideas, suggests that we bring gadgets and crap with us. I suppose camping has changed over the years.

  20. veggiepowered on May 5, 2021 at 12:10 am

    I’am Your Newest Subscriber Great Videos

  21. jwgbmp40 on May 5, 2021 at 12:10 am

    Great ideas. No cb or ham mobile or base radio unit?

  22. AN on May 5, 2021 at 12:10 am

    Can you please reference the Haloview product number/kit you installed?? Thanks for sharing!

  23. stacy hazelwood on May 5, 2021 at 12:11 am

    You always post useful info. Thank you!!

  24. Larry V on May 5, 2021 at 12:12 am

    Always look forward to your videos! I bought a Trace 1 Pro but had trouble with it. Not sure if it was operator error, or a defective device…..it kept shutting down randomly. Do you recall what brand and size sd card you are using? I have heard these dash cams can be "finicky" with some of the sd card from various manufacturers. Cheers

  25. Rick Sims on May 5, 2021 at 12:13 am

    Thanks. First time viewer. Great info.

  26. Candie Harris on May 5, 2021 at 12:14 am

    Def yes on all of them!

  27. GOE on May 5, 2021 at 12:15 am

    Ray, we use your videos like this to decide what annual upgrades we want for our Road. Thank you for making these videos!

  32. DingDongDaddy on May 5, 2021 at 12:20 am

    Man, with all the worrying about someone coming and stealing you’re stuff, it’s amazing you have any time to enjoy yourself?!

  33. Ron Wasser on May 5, 2021 at 12:20 am

  37. Tommy Wieringo on May 5, 2021 at 12:22 am

    You know them cameras are nice but bad if you get in a hail storm with hail the size of marbles I was going to put them on my trailor but glad I didn’t had a hail storm last week would have tore them up.

  38. Terry Haynes on May 5, 2021 at 12:24 am

    Great video. Thank you for sharing your wisdom, lessons learned and real life experiences! Love your channel!

  39. glen schumann on May 5, 2021 at 12:25 am

  42. Wes on May 5, 2021 at 12:34 am

    Boy I love my truck camper I don’t worry about tires blowing out or brake issues or backing up in tight places and no registration fees👍👍

  43. Jim Litz on May 5, 2021 at 12:36 am

    Excellent Top 12! Keep up the great work!

  45. David Link on May 5, 2021 at 12:38 am

    My best friend was the service manager at Camping World. In his own words if you have to plug into a separate device before plugging into the pedestal you bought a piece of garbage. I worked at a resort in Colorado and people would come to me all the time saying they’re little black box told them that our pedestal was bad. I would go out with a meter and check the pedestal completely and nothing was wrong with it, it was there garbage box.

  46. Anthony Hitchings on May 5, 2021 at 12:38 am

    Thanks, Ray

  47. dlapierre99 on May 5, 2021 at 12:39 am

    I totally agree that a dedicated GPS such as Garmin that doesn’t rely on LTE to get its map is absolutely necessary. So many times I was in dead zone and my Garmin never failed me.

  48. Garth Hart on May 5, 2021 at 12:44 am

    Good summary Ray

  49. Ricardos Travels on May 5, 2021 at 12:46 am

    Nice electronic list, Ray – it seems you’ve been in my electronics bag.

  50. The Critter and The Butterfly on May 5, 2021 at 12:47 am

    Another great video. I agree that once you have the must-haves, you won’t know how you lived without them. We have a rear-view camera in our suburban as well. The tinted windows or a high load are no problem, and we have no blind spots. The signal boosters, weather station, and surveillance cameras are the only ones we don’t have. We went with a pedestal mount power management unit. That way we can test the pedestal before we open up our Trailmanor.
