Took our first trip in the 400 this weekend and came up with a list of items we want to get for future trips. Looking for recommendations on a few of these from all the experienced hands on this forum:
- Non-slip tarp or light weight mat to go underneath our 5x8 outdoor woven plastic rug
- 48 OZ electric water boiler, not plastic, but durable.
- Camp lantern
We were very happy with and would recommend our Trekology lightweight aluminum folding table and FabHabitat recycled rug, both of which were purchased thru Amazon.
And thanks to this forum for the tips on Happy Camper black tank powder, camco slinky, plastic crates for holding gear, the need for a camp rug generally, the tip to put a rubber mat over the step to protect our dog's paws, RV toilet paper, water pressure regulator, cracking the windows at night for humidity control. We are totally new to RVs, so this was all super helpful info for first trip. All the 400 systems we have used so far (Alde heat/hot water, fridge, lighting system, usb charger, ac on shore power, tv, stereo) have worked great. The only thing that broke was the shear pin on the tongue crank. Fortunately this happened at home so my husband was able to come up with a temp fix.
