5 Essential Travel Trailer Replacement Parts

Owning a travel trailer offers people the chance to enjoy a few home comforts while traveling around. A travel trailer can save you a lot of money that would need to be spent on hotels, but you need to ensure that your trailer is well-maintained or it may cost you a lot of money in repairs in the long run. We take a look at the essential items that you need to keep a check on or that you may want to think about replacing.

1. Safety items

First and foremost, you need to ensure that your travel trailer is safe for use. Making sure that you own and maintain essential items such as fire alarms and carbon monoxide detectors can save your life. Always ensure that batteries are in your safety devices and have a check on them before you leave. Living in such a confined space and cooking in small areas can mean that you are more prone to fires, so safety first at all times.

2. Light switches and light bulbs

If you are planning on hitting the road for a long period and you will not be near any electrical stores, you will need to check all of your electrics before you leave and ensure you take spare light bulbs that will last you throughout your journey. Many travel trailer parts are specially made and normal household fixtures and fittings may not work. Light bulbs are not very expensive so it’s always good to have them in stock.

3. Auto Sewer Flush Valve

It is not the nicest thing to think about, but looking after your toilet and sewage system is essential. You will be using your toilet and wash facilities a lot while on the road and you do not want you whole living space smelling. You need to make sure your water tanks are kept clean and using an auto sewer flush valve is very advantageous.

4. Silicone Rescue Tape

No matter how much you look after your travel trailer, problems are bound to pop up now and again on your travels. Having a stash of silicone rescue tape will serve you in good stead as a temporary fix for electrical faults, fuel line problems or damaged hoses.

5. Travel Trailer Solar Charging System

Not having to rely on a hook-up for power can feel very liberating and it enhances the sense of freedom the travel trailer brings. The sun is packed full of energy that can be utilized instead of using a generator. Solar power is very cost-effective and is much better for the environment too. There are many systems for solar charging systems to suit all budgets and they are a very wise investment however much you spend.

Maintaining your travel trailer will ensure that you enjoy many years of happy traveling in your home away from home and you will not be tempted to book into a costly hotel simply because you have not looked after your home essentials.

Construction Trailer Electrical Setup and Tour (110v and 12v)

In this video I take you on a quick tour/overview of my onboard electrical system.
I show how I wired and use my household current with outlets located at the rear and front of my trailer. I also go over the 12v system I have in place. The 12v system powers all the interior lights and my exterior lights when the switch is in the on position. The exterior lights become reverse lights when the truck is in reverse and are powered by the truck.

Keep Your Dump Trailer Dumping- It Works, It’s Simple And It’s Cheap

Key function of this system:
To disconnect the truck charge wire from the battery when operating dump cycle. This safeguards the truck wiring from excessive amp draw (blowing your auxiliary fuse). If your trailer is equipped with a charging indicator and/or diode (prevents trailer back feed when truck is off) I would install this on the truck side of this jibberish. The test light is not necessary but nice to show your truck is putting out voltage and that the relay is operating properly.
The most cycles I’ve dumped my trailer in a days work is 15. No Problems. If your dumping more than this I would recommend a second battery and/or some heavy battery cable straight back from your vehicle’s batteries(y).

#1. Choose a Test Light of your liking. Incandescents are nice because they show a voltage curve by brightness. LEDs are pretty but they’ll be on or off

#2. Fuse holder and fuse, 3/4 amp for relay coil

#3. Example of a nice relay and harness on Amazon:

Today on this enclosed trailer were going to install part number 20011 from Hopkins. This is their trailer breakaway kit battery charger. Right now, looking at our trailer the way its hooked up is that it does not have a battery charger. It has a 12 volt power lead coming off the towing vehicle going straight to the battery that will charge the battery, but over time that could overcharge the battery, especially on a long trip. Were going to install our battery charger. The first step is we will go ahead and locate the wiring that comes off the battery charge from the towing vehicle and we will hook that up to the black wire.

Next we will go ahead and take the red wire and we will hook that up to the battery on the trailer, that way the battery will be getting a charge. Now the blue wire coming off the charger will go out to our breakaway switch. You can use a variety of different connections. In this case we will be using wire nuts. Once our connections are made we can take our charger and tuck it in next to the battery.

With that, that will finish it for our install of part number 20011 from Hopkins on this enclosed trailer.
