A slight, potentially helpful change to your RV…

Last time we went camping, my wife complained because of the hot lights. Well, I guess she forgot because there’s no mention of the latest improvement I made … LED lights. Here’s the deal: LED lights don’t emit nearly as much heat as the incandescent lights the manufacturer installed at the factory. They certainly don’t use as much power as the incandescent lights so they will help you with power consumption.

Here’s another item of interest: Saving money. Look to Amazon for less expensive but questionable parts for your travel trailer, and these LED lights are no exception. I am working long hours this week so I didn’t get a chance to actually power up the RV. I might drag the battery over there this week to give it a try but I’m sure the LED lights will work. The light will be a bit on the harsh side, but it’s nothing compared to heating your travel trailer up with those lights during a Texas summer.

I went to Camping World a couple of weeks ago. Great selection, but the prices are absolutely ridiculous. I’m wondering why Camping World even bothers to sell stuff you can get at Wal-Mart or Amazon? The reality is, I purchased a 10-pack of LED’s from Amazon for the price of a single light from Camping World. That’s right, the same light that cost me $1.98 at Amazon cost $19.98 at Camping World.

If you’re in an RV, you are always on the lookout for getting your vehicle prepared for travel and living, with the best possible gear at the lowest possible price. I don’t understand Camping World. They seem as if they are out to soak the RVer for every dime possible. I saw a part to connect my Weber Q1200 to the trailer’s gas supply for ~ $42. Okay, but I saw  a similar part to connect the same grill to a propane tank for ~ $39. I can get that same $39 part at Walmart or Lowe’s for $21. Like I said, I don’t know why Camping World soaks people like that, other than to enrich themselves off truly desperate customers.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
