Embarking on a journey with your RV is a thrilling adventure, and at E3 Camping, we believe in starting it the right way – with the spirit of empowerment, aspiration, and a strong sense of community. Our campers are not just travelers; they are passionate enthusiasts seeking a unique blend of education, entertainment, and a vibrant community that shares their love for camping. In this guide, we’ll delve into essential camping logistics, ensuring you embark on a journey that aligns with the E3 Camping spirit.
Choosing the Right Stopovers:
Years ago, RV enthusiasts might have parked in unconventional spots for the night, but at E3 Camping, we emphasize the significance of campgrounds in the RV lifestyle. Campgrounds offer more than just a parking space; they provide a safe, convenient haven with essential facilities like water, electricity, and sanitation. They’re not just a stopover; they’re an integral part of the camping experience, fostering community and offering a chance to unwind after a day on the road.
Community Connection Upon Arrival:
Upon reaching a campground, our campers are welcomed by friendly managers and staff who go beyond providing a site; they offer insights into the local community, suggest activities, and guide you to the best spots. It’s not just a place to park; it’s an opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals and share the joy of camping.
Holding Tank Wisdom:
Emptying your holding tank is an important aspect of RV life, and at E3 Camping, we advise doing it right. Timing matters – wait until your tank is at least half to three-quarters full after a day of travel. Dumping daily wastes chemical treatments, and a full tank ensures efficient cleaning. Closing the dump valve after emptying is crucial to prevent odors and maintain tank integrity.
Leveling Your RV with Care:
Leveling your RV isn’t just about preventing discomfort; it’s about ensuring smooth operations. Always level before extending slide-outs to prevent issues. Use large pads under leveling jacks to avoid sinking, especially in softer grounds. And before connecting your electrical cord, check the electricity with a polarity checker, safeguarding your RV’s electronic systems.
Water Tank Strategies:
At E3 Camping, we advocate for filling water tanks before hitting the road, providing a constant water supply and flexibility in choosing sites. The weight difference for fuel efficiency is minimal, and traveling with an empty tank may disrupt the RV’s balance.
Your awning is a valuable asset, offering shade and shelter. Lower one end slightly during rain to prevent water pooling. Use tie-down straps in windy areas to avoid damage. Always roll it up if strong winds are forecasted. Keep your campfire away from the awning, protecting it from sparks, and ensure the fire is out before bedtime.
Considerate Generator Use:
When using a generator in campgrounds without electricity, be considerate of noise. Extend the exhaust to avoid bothering neighbors. Maintain a quiet environment, even with external devices. At E3 Camping, we believe in fostering a community spirit, respecting the peace and tranquility of fellow campers.
Smooth Departure and Driving Tips:
Leaving the campground is a process; start your engine after all tasks are done to minimize exhaust fumes. Check your brakes before departing. Stick to a planned route for a stress-free journey. And remember, the optimal speed for fuel efficiency with an RV is 90 km per hour (50 mph).
