This Summer’s Newest RV Tech

At Bucars RV, we stay on top of the latest trends in the RV industry so that we are able to provide our customers as much value as possible and give them advice about the latest RV tech available. If you’re getting ready for the summer camping season, there are some new RV camping accessories you definitely need to know about for the summer of 2019.

RV Solar Panels

Looking to camp off of the grid? It’s time to look at adding some RV solar panels to your camper. The Bucars RV Parts Store has all of the latest and greatest solar products and batteries to keep your RV powered up in some of the most remote locations you could camp in.

Portable RV Solar Panels

These portable RV solar panels are a great option if you do not want to permanently install solar panels on your RV. We all like parking our RV in the shade in the summertime to stay cool. Parking in the open so we can catch some rays to power our RV defeats the purpose when we’re trying to stay cool.

Luckily, our portable RV solar panels can be placed in the sun, even if you’ve parked your RV in the shade. By running a power cord back to the RV, you can still generate power and continue to run any appliances or devices you have with you. It’s the best of both worlds! If you’re looking to camp remotely or save money by not needing to camp in power sites, this is one of the best RV accessories you can buy.

Deep Cycle RV Batteries

When you’re generating power from the sun, you need a place to store it so you can use it later on! For this, we recommend using RV Care deep cycle RV batteries to keep your RV running at peak efficiency.

The beauty of our deep cycle RV batteries is that they are designed to be regularly discharged and run reliably until the battery is 80% discharged. It gives you a longer, stronger charge and provides consistent power until needing to be recharged.

Tricks for Your RV Batteries

Since many of our customers end up needing more batteries to store their solar-generated electricity, we have made this helpful video about how to connect four six volt batteries in series in order to create a larger capacity for your RV.

Many RVers assume that a larger twelve volt or two twelve volt batteries are better than a pair six volt batteries, but this isn’t always true. There are pros and cons to running a single twelve-volt or running two or four six-volt batteries, but it all comes down to which application is best for you and how you use your RV.

RV Surge Protection

Now that we’ve talked about how to keep the electricity flowing, let’s talk about regulating it! We often buy surge protectors for our TV’s and electronics at home, but many people overlook getting them for their RV’s too.

Think about it this way; you don’t want to ruin the electronics in your TV in the event of a surge or brown out, wouldn’t you want to protect your investment in an RV the same way? To help you prevent electrical damage from power fluctuations, the parts and RV accessories department at Bucars RV sells surge protectors to keep everything operating safely.

The Furrion Vision Observation System

Maneuvering a larger RV can be difficult if you’re used to driving a smaller vehicle throughout the week. If you’re not used to shoulder checking thirty to forty feet behind you and backing up a trailer, it can be a bit nerve-wracking even with the best mirrors available.

To help take away some of the stress of hauling your RV around, Furrions’ new RV camera system will help you maneuver your RV and get to the campsite with confidence. These cameras can be installed on your RV and stream to a touch screen inside your vehicle so you can see what is around you.

You’ll be able to change lanes and back your RV into your camping spot with confidence with this awesome RV gadget.

The Andersen Camper Leveler

This has to be one of the coolest inventions to help you level your RV quickly.

The Andersen Camper Leveler is essentially a modular ramp that allows you to adjust how your RV is sitting on uneven ground to get it leveled on the first try.

When you first pull into your camp spot, you simply put them in front of the wheels of your RV and drive ahead until your unit is level! It doesn’t get any easier than that.

If you’re an RVer, you’ve definitely experienced how frustrating it can be to level your RV. The Andersen Camper Leveler is a great way to get into relaxing and enjoying your RV trip quicker, without the hassle and frustration of trying to level your RV on uneven ground.

The Camco Extendable Broom and Dustpan Combo

If you like to pack space efficiently when you go on an RV trip, here is the ultimate RV accessory for you! The Camco Extendable Broom and Dustpan Combo are great for any RVer that needs to keep their clutter to a minimum for a smaller RV.

The broom and dustpan collapse into a smaller size so it can be easily stored and brought with you in your RV. If you own a collapsible tent trailer or a smaller RV, it can be hard to fit a full-size broom inside of your RV to keep it clean on a camping trip.

You’ll never have to worry about how you’re going to sweep out your RV again with this awesome combo!
