Your RV batteries produce power in Direct Current (DC) that run at low voltages. Power companies and AC generators produce sine wave Alternating Current (AC), which is used to operate 120-volt appliances and electronic equipment. An inverter takes 12-volt DC power from your RV batteries and electronically changes it to 120-volt AC.
Below are some RV terms, information and items new RVers need to be familiar with:
The potable water system in your house is pretty much maintenance free. The potable water system in your RV, on the other hand, requires some maintenance to keep it trouble free. Questions I get quite often is the complaint that there is a stale odor coming from the RV water system.
When you return from a trip and you’re not going to use the RV for a while, you need to drain the entire water system to prevent it from getting stale and musty.

RV Water Hook-Up:
At the campground you want to get some water running through the RV plumbing system. At home when you want water you open a faucet and its there like magic. When it comes to your RV there are two ways to get water to flow through the taps.
You purchase an RV, and the day finally comes when you take delivery of the RV from the dealership. You are excited, and just want to take the RV home. The dealership gives you a walk-through orientation of the RV, explaining how everything on the RV works. You listen and watch, but it is too much information to process in a short period of time. Now you are home with the RV, and you cannot remember 80-percent of what was covered during the walk-through. One week later, you remember even less:

In 2011, we restored a vintage 1967 Yellowstone travel trailer from the ground up. This is a short 5 part series recap of the vintage trailer restoration process.
We completed our 5 part RV Interior makeover by installing new furniture, provided by REC PRO. The furniture installation went smoothly, and because our 5th wheel trailer is stationary we did not secure the furniture to the floor, but that is easy to do. We hope you enjoyed our RV interior makeover, and if you have an older RV like ours, we hope this series gave you some ideas on how to update your RV’s interior.
Several years ago, we installed Infinity Luxury Woven Vinyl (LWV) flooring in our motorhome. We liked the product so much that we installed it in our RV patio room at the beach. In part 4 of our RV interior Makeover, we are installing Infinity Luxury Woven Vinyl flooring in the 5th wheel kitchen, living room and slide-out. Thank you to LWV for providing the flooring for this segment.
In Part 3 of our RV Interior Makeover, we install white washed wood planks on two accent walls in the RV. This is a fun RV DIY weekend project that you can tackle in RV.
In this episode of the RV interior makeover we install new MCD day/night roller shades on five windows in the 5th wheel project trailer. MCD shades are available in a variety of styles and colors to compliment any RV interior design, and they are custom made for your RV. We selected the American Duo Day Night roller shades. The new shades were provided by MCD Innovations for this project. Enjoy the video and stay tuned for upcoming episodes of the RV interior makeover.
The interior of our 5th wheel trailer at the beach is showing its age, so we decided to do an RV interior makeover. We plan to upgrade the RV flooring, RV shades, furniture, refrigerator and add an accent wall using reclaimed wood planks. But before we can do any of that we need to remove almost everything from the RV’s interior. Enjoy the video and stay tuned for upcoming segments of the RV interior makeover.
