Fall RV activities: camping with family

Family-friendly fall RV activities

Go camping at the area’s top campgrounds

Fall really is the best time to go camping. Take this opportunity to stay at campgrounds that are normally packed during the summer. Enjoy fewer crowds and pick a prime spot. Plus, those cooler nights are perfect for sleeping with the windows open. Pack some extra blankets or flannel sheets so everyone can sleep comfortably. Or turn on your RV heater if needed.

Play in the great outdoors

Whether your family bikes, hikes, or walks, there are lots of opportunities to get moving and explore miles of trails. Just load your gear in your RV and head out while you can. This is also a great time of year to try geocaching. With so many leaves on the ground, finding those hidden treasures can be more interesting and challenging.

Install RV insect screens and keep your rig bug-free

In this post, we’ll show you how to install RV insect screens over refrigerator, furnace, and water heater vents. You can also check out our How-To video on our YouTube channel.

 

We all enjoy the great outdoors, but there are some parts of it that we would rather keep outside. Mosquitos, wasps, and other pests are unwelcome guests in any RV. Besides being a nuisance, some can build nests in vents that interfere with airflow, causing serious damage to appliances. You can easily install RV insect screens to prevent bugs from crashing your next camping trip.

Before you head to the parts store, look at the shape of your RV’s vents and measure the size of each. Camco makes multiple sizes and styles of insect screens, but if you know your vent dimensions it should be easy to find the correct parts for your RV. When in doubt, consult your owner’s manual for more information.
