After having a Keyless Door Lock on our previous RV, we were sad to discover that this was not an option on our new trailer. You may not think this is much of a necessity, but until you have one you won’t know how much of a convenience it really is. We all need to think about security a bit more these days.

Our new RV came equipped with a rear camera mount. The mount was preinstalled at the factory and was provided to the manufacturer by Furrion. The Furrion Vision 2 FOS48TA-BL or a Furrion Vision 1 FRC12TAPK-BL can be easily installed to this mount in just a few minutes.

I just had 4 brand new Maxxis ST235/80R16 trailer tires installed on the RV today. I took the advise of Roger Marble from RV Tire Safety and purchased them from a national chain. I got them from Discount Tire.
