Two Super-Useful Products to Keep On Hand

If your trailer's roof has ever leaked, or you have worries that it might, here is a product you'll be happy to have on hand:

Eternabond is a micro-sealant in tape form--like a roll of duct tape, only better--and many RV owners swear by it. It will bond to and seal any non-pressurized surface in minutes. Great product to keep on hand. The linked website has extensive information for your review. The site includes a store locator, but you also can order Eternabond directly from the site.

Jig-a-Loo is a spray-on lubricant in a can. It has water-proofing and rust-preventive properties, doesn't stain, and can be used on just about any surface. It'll lubricate your trailer's jack, its pull-out step, the awning rail, the door lock, the window latches--you name it. And, it'll also help repel water from exterior seams until you can get that old butyl tape replaced. (This is the putty-like substance installed to seal the seams; over time, it breaks down to create pinholes that can allow water to get in.) The product website gives you lots of ideas on how to put Jig-a-Loo to use.

As an adventuresome friend of Girl Camping Girl likes to say, there are few things as satisfying as having a good fix-it item at hand when you need it!


  1. OMGosh, I need to get both these products. My vent isn't leaking but looks like it could. And my step is hard to pull out and the key doesn't always open the door right away. I love this helpful info.
