Tech Accessories for Your RV: Time for a Post-holiday Splurge

A man appears to be in a video call. He is smiling as he holds his phone, his hands are animated, appearing to have an exciting conversation. On his RV tabletop is an open laptop. The interior of the RV is cosy and modern with tan seating.

Now that the winter holidays are in the rearview mirror, it's time to do a little shopping... for yourself! If you're like many RVers, cool tech gadgets to make life on the road just that much better top your list. The good news is that now is the perfect time to splurge a little.

Here are some of the best RV tech accessories to cross off your wish list.

Keyless Entry Doorlock

Whether you're in a campground, boondocking, or simply pulled over, feeling safe and secure in your RV is a must. That's where the Apex Keyless Entry Doorlock from Latch comes in handy.

This gadget means no more jangly, heavy set of keys to carry around (and potentially lose) when you're out and about. Instead, you just need to enter a code. Best of all, it comes with two little remotes, so you can simply click a button and be sure your RV is safely locked. Add in the light-up keypad and it's easy to see why this is one of the best RV tech accessories out there.

Back Up Camera

While some newer RVs come with a backup camera, it's definitely worth investing in one for older models, too. A backup camera system, like those from Furrion, gives you peace of mind and increases safety while driving and parking.

You'll always know exactly what's coming from behind, and you can keep an eye on your bikes or other cargo you may be storing on the hitch. When you're backing up the RV or trying to get out of a tight spot, you'll wonder how you ever got along without a backup camera.

Cell and WiFi Boosters

No matter where you travel, a good cell connection is a must these days. Avoid dropped calls and (worse) lost navigation with an RV cell signal booster. Simply install the antenna on top of your RV to boost the cell signal coming from the nearest tower up to 32 times.

Similarly, a WiFi booster will help you stay connected when you're on the road or off the grid. These boosters amplify the signal from WiFi hotspots, allowing you to keep connected from the road, stream your favorite movies, and more.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System

There's nothing more annoying than a flat tire, especially when the weather is frightful or you're on a busy road. Fortunately, there's a tech solution to this dreaded issue: an RV tire pressure monitoring system.

These systems, such as the TireMinder, help ensure that your tires remain inflated to the correct pressure, so you can avoid flats. Property inflated tires also extend tire life and help improve fuel efficiency, so it's a win-win. Pair the TireMinder with a portable air compressor and you can fill low tires from anywhere.

Bluetooth Speakers

A great set of speakers enhances your experience on the road. Music, audio books or podcasts while driving and watching shows while you're parked are all just that much better when you're listening through high-quality speakers. That's why we maintain that Bluetooth speakers are one of the best RV tech accessories to add to your gift list.

And for camping, choosing rugged outdoor speakers just makes sense. Waterproof and tough, you can use Bluetooth when you're relaxing by the fire pit or cooking over the grill. Of course, you can use them inside, too.

As we move into the new year, it's a perfect time to treat yourself and splurge on some of the best RV tech accessories to make your RVing experience even better.
