The safest and simplest way to install a home hookup for a recreational vehicle, or RV, is to use a supply pedestal manufactured for the purpose. Supply pedestals are similar to the hookups at most campsites, typically made with one built-in amp outlet, one amp outlet and one or two amp outlets. Appropriately sized circuit breakers are preinstalled, and some feature a usage meter and a switched light for using the pedestal after dark. They are weatherproof and entirely self-contained, set up so that one amp connection to the pedestal supplies all the outlets with their correct voltages. Locate the breaker box to the home.

A constant battle with traveling across the USA is water quality and taste. In the first couple years we used to test our water at each campground but it was such a pain, now we always use a filter system. A standard hose carbon filter is a great starting point for filtration, we prefer the Culligan brand because it has a higher flow rate and lasts longer than the Camco version both are fine. From there we run our water through the softener which removes more contaminants and reduces calcium which can destroy plumbing, fixtures and your water heater.
Have you ever noticed an RV sitting in someone's driveway and wondered if you could live in it that way? Well, the answer is yes - sort of! An RV can be hooked up to a home's electrical system, but there are some things you must know. While it's not suggested to live in an RV outside a home for an extended time although they can be insulated for longer-term efficiency , short trips will be fine for keeping the lights on during your travels.
