INSTALL FLEXIBLE SOLAR PANEL on RV with NO DRILLING
 
05:03
I've found that the best and easiest way to permanently install flexible solar panels on the roof of an RV, trailer or van without drilling holes is to use Eternabond tape. Watch me install a 100 watt monocrystalline solar panel using this technique and generate more amps for battery charging. LIKE WHAT YOU SEE?

Disappearing RV Sewer Hose Storage Tip
 
05:05
I came up with a better way to store my hoses and keep them completely out of site and out of the way. I call it the "Disappearing Sewer Hose." MORE RV TIP VIDEOS http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLIsusUNNN2JZL7_q0EauHXMwbaFIvUal_ I fastened inexpensive PVC fence posts underneath my RV and connected one end to the side of my sewer compartment. I cut a hole in the compartment so the fence post can stick through. My sewer hose and connectors can now slide right in without taking up valuable space in an existing compartment.

How To Connect RV Solar Panels - Parallel vs Series - MPPT vs PWM
 
10:50
When connecting multiple RV solar panels, is it better to connect the panels in series or parallel? Which configuration will give you the most power? Do I need an MPPT solar charge controller? I get these questions a lot so I'll do a little demonstration to show what happens when I wire my solar panels both in series and parallel. LIKE WHAT YOU SEE? CLICK HERE TO SUBSCRIBE http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=rvwithtito SUPPORT US BY SHOPPING ON AMAZON http://amzn.to/VYO045 MORE TIPS FOR CONNECTING SOLAR PANELS If you have an MPPT charge controller and closely matched panels, then wiring them in series or parallel should yield the same result. Watch the experiment in the video for a demonstration of this. If you have a PWM charge controller, it will be better to wire your solar panels in parallel keeping in mind you may need thicker cable. Finally, if you have mismatched panels, using an MPPT charge controller and wiring your panels in series will give you the best result. Want more?

How to REMOVE UGLY DECALS From Your RV
 
02:41
Faded, cracked and peeling decals can make an RV, camper or trailer look old. In this video I'll show you how I simply removed the worn manufacturer decals from my RV with some heat, a steady hand and a little patience. LIKE WHAT YOU SEE? CLICK HERE TO SUBSCRIBE http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=rvwithtito SUPPORT US BY SHOPPING ON AMAZON http://amzn.to/VYO045 MORE ABOUT THIS EPISODE I have never really liked having large RV manufacturer decals on my RV. Plus when they start to crack, fade and peel from the sun, they really look terrible. When the decals on my RV started to look bad, I just removed them using my wife’s hair dryer and some WD-40. (1) First heat up the decal to soften up the adhesive underneath (2) Then slowly pry up the edges of the decal and slowly peel them off (take your time) (3) Finally, clean up any remaining sticky spots and small pieces with some WD-40 Repeat these steps on all of your decals then give the surface of your RV a good cleaning.

ONE YEAR After My DIY FLEXIBLE SOLAR PANEL Installation
 
06:50
Here is a look at my flexible solar panels one year after the installation. They still perform great, but there is something I would do different next time when mounting with only Eternabond tape. OUR FULL RV SOLAR, BATTERY, INVERTER SYSTEM (Diagrams, Parts, Descriptions) http://www.rvwithtito.com/articles/our-solar ALL OF OUR SOLAR GEAR in one place http://www.rvwithtito.com/parts/rv-solar-power Flexible Solar Panel Installation Video https://youtu.be/FNPVue6SzdI No drilling Flexible Solar Panel Installation Video https://youtu.be/6XSux3Wdghg Find Weatherproof Doublesided Tape on Amazon http://amzn.to/2fI34j0 Find Eternabond Tape on Amazon http://amzn.to/2xrSWTe MORE ABOUT THIS EPISODE A year ago I installed three 100 watt flexible solar panels on the roof of my RV. Two of the panels were installed by drilling holes and using screws to hold the panel in place. A third panel was installed as an experiment using no screws and no drilling. I used Eternabond tape around the edges of the solar panel to secure it to my rubber roof. All three panels have been subjected to a year of sun, heat, rain and cold. As far as solar performance, they all continue to perform very well though I don't cover this in the video. The two flexible solar panels that are screwed in to the roof and sealed with Dicor lap sealant are still very strong and secure. The third panel secured with only Eternabond tape is still holding strong as well, but has had a little water collect under the panel. At first I was confused as to how water got under the panel. Then I noticed a small openning in the corners of the panel where water collected and seeped under the tape. I should have provided a way to prevent water from collecting in the corners. Nevetheless, some water seeped under the panel. Also I should have secured the edges of the solar panel better with some double sided tape. That would have prevented this problem as well. Overall, the flexible solar panels are doing well.

Boondocking In An RV Without Electric Hookups
 
11:31
I enjoy boondocking in beautiful remote locations without hookups, but it has taken my wife many years to get on board with the idea. We used to primarily go to RV parks, but now we enjoy the freedom and independence of camping almost anywhere without the need for electrical power hookups. In this video we explain how we got there. MORE BOONDOCKING TIPS http://www.rvwithtito.com/tip/camping-without-hookups LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR RV SOLAR and OFF-GRID Setup http://www.rvwithtito.com/articles/our-solar OUR LIST OF ESSENTIAL BOONDOCKING EQUIPMENT https://kit.com/rvwithtito/rv-boondocking-essentials OUR GEAR (Everything In One Spot) http://www.rvwithtito.com/gear MORE ABOUT THIS EPISODE My early attempts at dry camping (camping without hookups aka boondocking) were not great. I was always worried about running out of power and water. This would drive my family crazy as I would follow them around turning off lights. This made the experience of boondocking not very enjoyable. Each morning we would run our generator for an hour or so to recharge our batteries, which it would not. Eventually, we would run low on power and our other resources. Eventually, I doubled my battery capacity and started learning about solar. I installed 120 watts of solar and then double it to around 250 watts. I even installed an MPPT solar charge controller and pure-sine power inverter. This setup seemed to improve our boondocking experience significantly for several years. For the next few years, we continued to put our boondocking skills to the test. We were able to watch TV, use our laptop computers, and even use an electric coffee pot through our inverter. We still had to run our generator periodically for certain things like using a hair dryer or running the microwave. Nevertheless, this setup enabled us to slowly pull away from the full-hookup RV park style of RVing. What I soon realized though, is once you start adding solar to your RV, you will always want more. In the last couple years, I again doubled our solar capacity adding three more 100 watt flexible solar panels. I also more than doubled my battery capacity and upgraded to 4 AGM deep-cycle batteries. With 450 amp hours of batteries and roughly 550 watts of solar, we can now power most things we use. My wife can even use her high powered blow dryer without needing to start the generator. RVing for us now, is a completely different experience that it was when we first started ten years ago. We can now camp off-the-grid without sacrificing comfort and convenience. We rarely ever stay at RV parks and have the freedom to enjoy everything our RV provides wherever we happen to be. As for my wife Melissa, she’s totally on board now. So that’s our boondocking story. I hope it inspires you to become self-sufficient in your own RV and enjoy the freedom it provides.

How We Found Our Favorite Boondocking Site in the Southwest

This is the story of how we found our favorite boondocking site on the border of Utah and Arizona. But, if it wasn’t for a split decision to pull over and check Google maps, we would never have found this campsite right on beautiful Lake Powell. We even learned a hard lesson and had to rely on the generosity of our fellow RVers to get us unstuck. LIKE WHAT YOU SEE?

Watch the entire remodel series here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLIsusUNNN2JaTOI03gbTh_fmDhzTAWQsC Prior to ordering the recliners from RecPro.com I carefully measured the existing dinette to see how the new furniture would fit. The 70 inch wide recliners fit the 71 inch space perfectly. Here are the recliners we ordered: https://www.rvwithtito.com/recpro-recliner The wall hugger recliners needed 3-4 inches of clearance from the back wall, which placed the front of the recliners right at the front of the slide out. Again...perfect. Here’s what I did to prepare the dinette area for the new recliners: (1) Removed the dinette (video: https://youtu.be/UA-vYhHxysw) (2) Removed the seat belt bracket under the dinette (3) Removed the carpet under the dinette (4) Installed inexpensive carpet over the plywood floor (5) Added a 120VAC outlet to power the recliners (6) Mounted cables, wires and receptacles near the back wall of the slide out (7) Positioned remaining cables and boxes to fit within the metal frame of the recliners The recliner components come in pieces small enough to fit in the door of the RV. The chair back is separated from the chair base. To install the recliner and center console: (1) Position the right-most recliner base (2) Align the center console mounting pins and lock them with the first recliner (3) Align the mounting pins in the second recliner with the locking bracket of the center console (4) Connect power cords to a nearby outlet (powered recliners only) (5) Slide the seat backs into the two vertical mounting brackets in the base until they lock That’s it!

How To Remove Eternabond Tape
 
07:59
Eternabond tape CAN be removed if necessary. Here is a demonstration of the easiest and quickest way I’ve found to remove eternabond tape from your RV roof. I’ve done it several times and this method works the best. ** I always have a roll of Eternabond on hand, you should too ** WHERE TO BUY ETERNABOND TAPE (Amazon Affiliate Links) Eternabond Tape - multiple sizes (https://amzn.to/2p5stY5) Eternabond Double Stick Tape - multiple sizes (https://amzn.to/2CRNkrR) HOW I USE ETERNABOND TAPE (Video Playlist) https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLIsusUNNN2JbYu211NOuJdPvSlAGrHkd8 MORE ABOUT REMOVING ETERNABOND TAPE (Read the full article here: http://rvwithtito.com/articles/how-to-remove-eternabond-tape) Eternabond tape is used by RV, travel trailer, and camper van owners to repair leaks and seal roof openings, roof seams, window seams and storage compartments. The sticky material creates a watertight seal. I have also used Eternabond to securely mount flexible solar panels, antenna mounts and electrical boxes to the roof of my RV. It holds securely and can be a viable alternative to drilling holes and screws into your RV roof. There are times, when you may need to partially or completely remove the Eternabond tape. I have tried several techniques and chemicals to do this. Here are the steps I follow to remove Eternabond tape: 1. Heat the eternabond tape with a hair dryer or heat gun to soften it up 2. Tear back the outer coating of the tape 3. Use a utility knife to cut back the stringy sticky material as you pull off the outer coating 4. Heat up the remaining stick material with the hair dryer 5. Scrape as much of the stick material away with a plastic scraper (be careful not to puncture the surface of your roof) 6.

Fix the HOT Floor Problem in Your Gas RV
 
07:37
Here is how I fixed the hot floor problem in our Class C motorhome. This is a common problem in many Class C or Class A motorhomes with the engine located in the front of the RV. The passenger side floor gets very hot during long drives and becomes very uncomfortable for the passenger and often the driver. This is caused by a hot engine and exhaust located directly below the passenger cab area. MORE INFO ABOUT THIS PROJECT ON OUR WEBSITE http://www.rvwithtito.com/videos/fix-...

MPPT or PWM Solar Charge Controller for High Voltage Solar Panels?
 
06:35
Your choice of PWM versus MPPT solar charge controllers is critical if you choose high voltage grid-tie solar panels for your RV. I have flexible grid-tie Unisolar panels on my RV and I upgraded to MPPT. Watch the video to learn why. LIKE WHAT YOU SEE? CLICK HERE TO SUBSCRIBE http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=rvwithtito SUPPORT US BY SHOPPING ON AMAZON http://amzn.to/VYO045 Want more? Continue reading here http://www.rvwithtito.com/articles/how-connect-solar-panels SEE MORE OF MY VIDEOS/ARTICLES ON SOLAR http://www.rvwithtito.com/topics/solar MORE ABOUT THIS EPISODE MPPT charge controllers operate more efficiently than PWM controllers, can be used with higher voltage panels, and are able to convert unused voltage to higher amperage. My panels output a higher voltage than standard RV solar panels. For this reason I needed to install a quality MPPT controller to take advantage of the higher voltage. A PWM controller can also be used with higher voltage panels (20 volts and higher) as long as the voltage does not exceed the maximum input voltage of the controller. However, only a portion of the power from a high voltage solar array will pass through a PWM controller to your battery bank. So, if you have high voltage panels, an MPPT controller is recommended. SOLAR PANEL WIRING TIPS - SERIES VS PARALLEL If you have an MPPT charge controller and closely matched panels, then wiring them in series or parallel should yield the same result. If you have a PWM charge controller, it will be better to wire your solar panels in parallel keeping in mind you may need thicker cable. Finally, if you have mismatched panels, using an MPPT charge controller and wiring your panels in series will give you the best result.

RV REMODEL - Water Damage Floor Repair

That changed as I started removing the old flooring. What I found under the old flooring may make you gasp. As I removed the vinyl under the refrigerator, what I saw was rotted damp plywood. This may be a nightmare situation for most. After a quick examination of the problem area, I figured I’d try and fix it myself. I knew it would be difficult, but certainly doable. Here are the general steps to repair the water damaged RV floor: (1) Cut the plywood floor beyond the damaged area (just short of the thickness of the ½” plywood) (2) Remove any bolts and brackets that pass through the floor (3) Pry up the remainder of the damaged plywood down to the insulation and metal framing (4) Clean the area of all debris and corrosion (5) Cut a new piece of plywood the same thickness as the subfloor removed (6) Glue the new plywood down with construction adhesive (7) Replace the bolts and brackets removed previously (8) Place weights on the surface while the glue dries (9) Smooth out any rough edges with a wood plane or sander (10) Fill any gaps with sealant (11) Install new flooring (12) Stand back and admire your handywork DISCLAIMER The opinions expressed in our videos are our own or from a contributor.

Cool Jeepney Camper / RV
 
02:22
I met Steve and Letty while camping near Port Angeles, WA. They travel and camp in their colorful Jeepney camper that Steve actual built from scratch! Steve told me that he "always wanted a Jeepney" so he just decided to build one. WHAT IS a JEEPNEY? If you've spent any time in the Phillipines (like I have), then you know what a Jeepney is. The original Jeepneys were actually made from U.S. Army Jeeps that were left in the Phillipines after World War II. Following the war they became a very popular mode of transportation in the Phillipines sporting vibrant colors and personal touches. Steve and Letty's Jeepney is no different. Share this video http://youtu.be/vllJbq_5_Zo Steve and Letty have been around the country in their Jeepney attracting attention everywhere they go.

EASIEST Way To Refill RV Fresh Water Tank Without A Pump
 
05:31
Boondocking Tip: Here is the cheapest, simplest and most effective way I have found to transfer and refill water from a heavy water container into the fresh water tank of an RV, camper or trailer while boondocking. It requires no water pump or 12 volt power, just items I already keep in the RV. LIKE WHAT YOU SEE?

Breaking camp to take your RV to get water can be a pain in the butt. Many seasoned RVers carry a portable water container for this reason and use it to fetch fresh water and bring it back to the RV. But a five to 6 gallon water container full of water can weigh 50 to 70 pounds making it difficult to handle. Holding it over your head and pouring it into a funnel is a difficult and often wet task. There are portable pumps you can buy to assist you in transferring water from the jug. I’ve tried a few with limited success. Plus water pumps require power, usually from a car battery. I have found it much easier to simply use gravity, a hose, RV water filling attachment, and a water bandit attachment to get the water into the tank. The key to making this work well though is to create air flow and a little pressure in the tank to get the water flowing. It works surprisingly well. Here is how I refill water in my RV while boondocking: 1. Bring a water jug with you that has a spout (I use a 6 gallon jug with a spout) 2. Near the top, drill a small hole above the water line and temporarily put a screw in it 3. Go find fresh water and fill up the jug 4. Park your car, truck or a ladder next to your RV’s water supply filling point 5. Place the full water can at a point higher than the filling point (it is ok if the hose droops down below as long as the water can is above the filling point) 6. Connect the water filling attachment, hose and water bandit together 7. Connect the water bandit end of the hose to the spout on the water can (I add a zip tie for added tightness) Insert the water filling attachment in the RV water filling hole 8. Unscrew the small screw at the top of the water can to start the water flow (you may have to lift the hose at first, but once it starts flowing you can let it go) 9. That’s it. In a few minutes you all of the water will be transferred into your RV tank 10. Repeat this process as many times as you need to Give this technique a try next time you are out boondocking.

RV REMODEL - Flooring Installation Start to Finish
 
13:40
This phase of our RV renovation shows the full installation of new vinyl plank RV flooring in our Class C motorhome. Watch all of our RV remodel videos in the playlist below. WATCH THE ENTIRE RV REMODEL SERIES HERE https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLIsusUNNN2JaTOI03gbTh_fmDhzTAWQsC #rvwithtito #rvwtihtitoremodel #rvremodel MORE ABOUT THIS EPISODE With all old RV flooring removed it was time to install new flooring from the cab of our Class C motorhome all the way back through the bathroom to the bedroom. We decided to keep the carpet in the bedroom for now. WHAT TYPE OF FLOORING DID WE USE? We chose Stainmaster vinyl plank flooring from Lowes. I bought 9 boxes of flooring at around $45 each. In the end I used six boxes of flooring and returned the rest. Each plank is 6 inches wide by 48 inches long. The interior walls of my RV span 8 feet. The six inch width includes the snap-in portion, so the actual visible width of each plank is just under 6 inches. FLOORING INSTALLATION There are very few long walls on my RV. Most have walls, cabinets or slide outs. I chose to start in the living room facing towards the back working my way from left to right towards the slide out. LAYOUT: I offset each plank by ½ its length (2 ft) and chose planks from across multiple boxes to alternate the plank wood grain design. CUTTING: Cutting this material is very easy. Using a straight edge, score along the cut line with a utility knife and snap it off. ASSEMBLY: The vinyl planks snap together from left to right and front to back. I followed the instructions to assemble them. The ends often needed to be hammered into place with a rubber mallet. When done, there is almost no visible seam between planks. TRIM: I picked up new trim pieces to dress up the edges along the walls. Some were painted to match the wall color. I was able to match the cabinet color so no painting the ones next to the cabinets. In water sensitive areas (bathroom), I put a very small bead of silicon under the trim before driving a few finishing nails in. STAIR AND CAB TRANSITIONS I picked up some 90 degree aluminum transition pieces and cut them to size with a Dremmel and hacksaw. Then I nailed them into the flooring to secure them. CHALLENGES Cutting custom pieces to fit around the entry stairs and through the bathroom door took a bit of time to get just right. Other than that, there were no real problems. I took my time and planned out each row before laying it down.

How To Find Out The Age Of Your Tires
 
02:39
When were your tires made? How old are your tires? Here's how to find out. Each tire has a set of DOT codes on the side that indicate the the week and year that they were made. The Department of Transportation requires these codes to be on all tires. Since 2000, the DOT codes include the week and year the tire was manufactured. On tires made after 2000, a 4 digit DOT marker indicates that week and year the tire was manufactured. If you don't see this on your tire, then it may be printed on the other side of the tire. If you have only a 3 digit code, then it could mean that your tire was made prior to 2000. Before 2000, it was assumed that all tires had a maximum lifespan of 10 years, so there was no need to print the two digit year. For these tires, a 3 digit DOT code is used. The first two digits indicated the week, and the last digit indicated the year within the current decade. You should probably not be driving your RV on tires made before 2000. What is the lifespan of your tires? Most would agree that you should not be driving on tires that are over ten years old. But follow the manufacturers guidelines. Many experts would say that, regardless of your tire's wear, you should replace them after 6-7 years. With proper care, they may last longer. Whatever you do, it is a good idea to have your tires inspected regularly by a qualified tire shop.

What REALLY Happened Replacing the Window in my RV Door
 
12:14
Not all DIY projects go as planned. A LOT WENT WRONG on this project. I'll show you WHAT REALLY HAPPENED while making this video replacing the window in my Class C RV door with a Thin Shade RV Window. ITEMS IN THE VIDEO Thin Shade RV Door Window : https://amzn.to/2rvmTjf Gaffer Tape (so many uses/colors) : https://amzn.to/2zJqa2R SEE HOW I RECORDED THE MUSIC FOR THIS VIDEO https://www.patreon.com/rvwithtito MORE ABOUT THIS EPISODE It’s a great feeling when a DIY project goes smoothly -- you know, when you can take a step back, admire your handiwork, nod and think “Look at what I’ve done”. Unfortunately, things don’t always go your way, but you can’t let it get you down. This was one of those projects where things didn’t go well. When you add in the complexity of filming the whole thing the probability of smooth sailing goes down. The morning of the project, I looked outside. It was cloudy. I looked around and it looked like it would stay cloudy...just cloudy. So I decided that it would be a good day to replace the window in my RV door with a Thin Shade RV window that I had recently purchased on Amazon. Of course, I was going to make a video documenting the whole thing. After all, that’s what I do. I grabbed my stuff and headed out to get this done. After uncovering the RV part way, I got my camera setup and figured out what I was going to say. It started to sprinkle a little. Oh great. Then it started to sprinkle harder. I pulled out the awning just before the rain started coming down harder. The situation was not optimal for filming, but I was determined not to quit. Part way into the video, my neighbor nearby started using power tools...loud ones. So I waited that out. Each time there was a lull in the noise, I would quickly try and film something. And the airplanes...when did their flight path to/from Seattle get diverted over my house? Hmmm. When did that happen? First Mistake: I needed to tape the frame and glass down while removing the old window and reinstalling the new. I opted to use blue masking tape so it could be easily removed...mistake! When installing the new window, the masking tape didn’t hold and the whole thing came crashing down. You’ll see this happen in the video. Second Mistake: I installed one side of the frame upside down. Sure I read the instructions...OK more like scanned it. It didn’t appear to matter at a glance until you look close and notice that the ends are a little bit different. Third Mistake: While reinstalling the upside-down frame, I dropped a couple of small black screws into the gravel. It was almost impossible to find them, but I found one. There were no extra screws in the kit so I had to improvise. Luckily I found a similar screw in my screw jar, but had to color it black making it less obvious that it didn’t belong. All in all, it ends well. The new window is awesome, but what should have taken about ½ hour took about 3 hours to finish. As I reviewed my video footage of the project, I realized that the real story that needed to be told was not about installing the window. The real story was behind the camera and how everything went wrong...almost horribly wrong. #rvwithtito #rvdiy #rvrenovation #rvupgrades DISCLAIMER The opinions expressed in our videos are our own or from a contributor.

RV Delamination Repair Tips // How To
 
13:45
I successfully completed the delamination repair on my 11 year old RV and it looks great now. Here are my top tips and tricks I learned that may help you with your delamination repair. It took a full week to complete the job, but only cost me around $200 in additional materials. I also share my delamination repair kit below. If you do ever have this problem, know that it's not the end of the world.

I typically keep the RV covered during the rainy months in the Northwest, but I'm guessing some rain had gotten behind the seam and softened the wood backing along the edge early on. Once a bubble starts, it just continues to grow through temperature changes of the seasons. I only noticed the damage in the last two years, but the problem probably started many years ago. Here's the the general process I followed to repair the delamination: 1. Remove edging, compartments and windows to get behind delaminated surfaces 2. Tape a large syringe and plastic tube to a long stick (injector) 3. Mix epoxy and load injector 4. Insert injector behind delaminated area 5. Push syringe to inject epoxy while slowly pulling the injector out 6. Press down on surface immediately after injecting to spread and bond epoxy to sides 7. Apply temporary clamp if possible 8. Repeat until you’ve treated a section 9. Clamp treated section until cured (15-24 hours) 10. Repeat for all sections Here are some tips and tricks to increase the success rate of your repair: 1. Work from the bottom up 2. Mark the area to be treated with blue tape 3. Cover with plastic (drips and oozing) 4. Inject above area to be treated 5. Apply pressure after each injection (to spread epoxy, keep from collecting at bottom) 6. Buy the pump kit (mix quicker and accurately) 7. Mix small batches of epoxy (4-5 pumps) 8. Do not reuse injector for multiple days. Build a clean and fresh one each time 9. Have plenty of wedges ready and shims (I made eight, then another eight. It never seemed that I had enough) 10. Do a test run before treating each area #rvwithtito #rvdiy #rvlife #doityourself GET Q&A and BONUS CONTENT as an INSIDER https://www.patreon.com/rvwithtito MY FAVORITE GEAR http://www.rvwithtito.com/gear DISCLAIMER The opinions expressed in our videos are our own or from a contributor.

The new shower head uses patented technology to infuse oxygen into the water to increase spray velocity and produce a high flow shower even with low water pressure. We also found a matching shower faucet with a brushed nickel finish to complement the new shower head. It is made of lightweight plastic, but looks like finished metal. Both items featured in the video purchased on Amazon.

Installing LED Marker, Clearance and Porch Lights on RV
 
08:25
Do you want to upgrade the external lights on your RV, motorhome, trailer, camper or van? Here is how I replaced 14 incandescent marker clearance lights on my RV with LED lights for under $50. I also replaced my old incandescent porch light with a motion sensor low power LED light for added security while overnight parking and boondocking. LIKE WHAT YOU SEE? CLICK HERE TO SUBSCRIBE http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=rvwithtito LED LIGHT FIIXTURES I INSTALLED (on Amazon) Replacement LED Marker Lights (pack of 10): http://amzn.to/2z5hMbS Replacement LED Marker Lights (2-Pack Red): http://amzn.to/2xoBxht Replacement LED Marker Lights (2-Pack Amber): http://amzn.to/2y7aG8a Motion Sensor LED Porch Light: http://amzn.to/2xpBL2X Wago Wire Connectors I used (my favorite): http://amzn.to/2gRKYOv SUPPORT US BY SHOPPING ON AMAZON http://amzn.to/VYO045 MORE ABOUT THIS EPISODE The marker clearance lights on my 10 year old RV have incandescent bulbs that need to be replaced periodically. I keep a supply of bulbs on hand for this purpose. For this reason, I decided to replace all of these old marker lights with LED fixtures. Since I have 14 clearance and marker lights on my RV, I did not want to spend a lot of money on expensive lights. I searched Amazon for replacements and found a set of 10 LED replacement bulbs containing five amber and five red lights for under $30. I ordered them plus 4 additional fixtures. My total order came to around $45 for all 14 LED marker lights. I also wanted to replace my incandescent porch light with a lower power LED porch light. I found one on Amazon that also had a built-in motion sensor feature for around $58. The reviews were good so I picked up one of those as well. The plastic lenses on both types of lights tend to crack from exposure to the elements and need to be replaced periodically. When they crack moisture can get into the fixture and into the wall of your RV, camper, trailer or van. For this reason, I installed the lights with a better weatherproof seal. Here are the steps I took to install the LED marker lights and porch light: 1. Make sure the lights are turned off 2. Remove the lense and remove the two screws securing the light 3 Pry the old fixture away from the wall of the RV. TIP: Applying heating the sealant/caulk around the old fixture makes it easier to remove 4. Remove any existing sealant using a scraper, a towel and some WD-40 or mineral spirits 5. Cut the two wires connecting the light fixture and remove the old fixture 6. Strip the ends of the wires 7. Attach the positive and negative wires to the new fixture using wire connectors. Note: The black wire on these fixtures is the positive wire and the white wire is the negative ground wire. 8. Wrap the wire connectors with electrical tape to ensure they stay connected and weatherproof when pushed back into the wall 9, Cut a piece of weather proof tape (like Eternabond) to fit over the main opening and the screw holes 10, Apply the tape so the wires come out the bottom to prevent any water from entering the wall if the light fixture leaks 11. Screw the new LED fixture back on screwing through the tape 12. Apply a bead of silicon sealant around the edges 13, Attach the lense and you are done I repeated these steps for all 14 LED marker lights and the LED porch light. This was a pretty simple project, but there were many lights to do. The hardest part for me was removing old sealant left over from the original light. But after 5 or 6 lights, it gets easier.

RV REMODEL - Remove Dinette, Sofa, Blinds
 
16:25
OUR RV IS GETTING A MAKEOVER. In this video I’m removing the dinette, sofa and blinds and sharing my plans to remodel the interior of our class c motorhome. I’ll be building a custom TV lift cabinet, desk and table plus adding some comfy furniture.

Having spent many years traveling with kids, Melissa and I are ready for a change. We don’t need the extra sleeping areas that were great when we needed to sleep up to 6 people. These days it’s just the two of us and we are ready for a full makeover of the living area in our class c motorhome. This video is phase 1 in a series of videos I’ll be posting on this remodel. I started by removing the jack knife sofa, dinette and blinds to see what I have to work with. With a blank slate, I can then start rewiring electrical circuits and preparing the area for new stuff. The general goal of this makeover is comfort, versatility and coolness. In a future video I’ll be building a custom piece of furniture to serve as our desk, shoe rack, kitchen table, and TV stand. I’ve always wanted to install an automatic TV lift. So that’s going to be a cool feature of this new piece. In place of the dinette, I’ll be installing two new powered recliners (from recpro.com). They are comfy enough to be able to fall asleep in. That’s pretty exciting. Finally, I’ll install new window shades, storage cabinets in the overhead bunk area, new flooring and maybe even a stand up desk option (still thinking about that one). Be sure to follow along for this exciting remodel. #rvwithtito #rvwithtitoremodel #rvremodel #rvdiy #classcrv #rvrenovation DISCLAIMER The opinions expressed in our videos are our own or from a contributor.

Cable Access Hole Through RV Roof // How To // Solar
 
13:00
How to create a waterproof access hole to run all cables through your RV roof and into the walls of your RV. One reusable hole is better than many smaller ones. When done correctly, drilling a hole into your RV roof to run cables can be the best approach to routing solar panel, satellite antenna, WiFi booster, and cell phone booster cables through your roof. FULL PROJECT PARTS LIST http://www.rvwithtito.com/parts/cable-access-hole DIRECT LINKS PROJECT MATERIALS/TOOLS (Affiliate Links) USB Borescope Inspection Camera with Adjustable LED light (https://amzn.to/2ziRE1f) Set of Stepped Drill Bits (https://amzn.to/2KKAdMr) PG9 White Waterproof Cable Glands (https://amzn.to/2zhrvA0) Solar Weatherproof ABS Solar Double Cable Entry Gland (https://amzn.to/2KS3DEq) Waterproof Cable Power Project Junction Box (https://amzn.to/2ziQlPT) Eternabond Double Sided 1”x 50’ (https://amzn.to/2uj7CTF) Dicor Lap Sealant (https://amzn.to/2ub6st7) DIAGRAMS OF OUR RV SOLAR, BATTERY, INVERTER SYSTEM http://www.rvwithtito.com/articles/our-solar #rvwithtito #rvdiy #rvsolardiy MORE ABOUT THIS PROJECT The Problem: Power and signal cables from roof mounted solar panels and antennas should be as short as possible to avoid signal loss and power loss You don’t want to add a new hole each time you add new equipment on your RV roof Vent holes and other openings in your RV roof are not always located in the best location for running cables The Solution: Install a cable access point that is waterproof, centrally located on the roof, and large enough to accommodate future cables for new gear. Main Takeaways From This Project: (1) Creating a larger hole in your RV roof for many cables is better than creating several small holes (2) Plan your project and cable paths carefully Get familiar with the location of existing cables and equipment in your RV. Use existing cable paths when possible. This will help minimize the number holes you will have to make in walls and cabinets. (3) Take care to seal new holes in your RV roof properly with materials like Dicor Lap Sealant and Eternabond tape. Any hole in your roof is a potential leak. (4) Before drilling holes do what you can to find out what is behind walls and in the roof structure. Remove light fixtures, vents, and cabinet components, then use an inexpensive borescope to see inside the walls and ceiling. Good Luck!

RV Flat Tire Far From Home - Les Schwab Tire Value Promise Works
 
02:19
We recently got a flat on the RV while far from home. A nearby Les Schwab Tire Center replaced the tire fast and I was back on the road. Watch this video and find out how this was possible. Share this video http://youtu.be/9RIq70064mo When buying new tires for your RV or trailer, do your research online but also consider buying your tires from a reputable tire service center that has service locations in the areas you plan to travel the most. While in Nevada (three states away from home) my rear RV tire was punctured by a large bolt. Fortunately I was covered. I located a nearby Les Schwab Tire Center (@ 1290 Kietzke Ln, Reno, NV) only a mile away from my location (I purchased my tires from my local Les Schwab). I called them and was able to drive my RV there for service. They had my tires in stock and replace the punctured tire at no cost within an hour. No problem. Do you know how old your tires are? Here's how to find out: http://youtu.be/Kn_1TjOD1q0 I previously considered purchasing expensive Michelin Rib tires to replace my 8 year old RV tires. I'm glad I didn't. I found comparable TOYO tires from Les Schwabb for $100 less per tire plus lifetime flat repair and damage warrantee. For the record, I do carry a spare and have Coach Net roadside assistance. I didn't need to use either this time Everyone is happy and relieved. THANKS FOR WATCHING!
