Every Californian out there is aware of the serious drought we are currently experiencing, as well as the day-to-day consequences that result from this statewide water shortage. Since it is up to all of us to take on the responsibilities of smart water conservation, it is important to remember the ways to do so while RV camping. There are in fact several proven methods, which can help you and your family reduce your water consumption and waste during your next RV camping trip.

10 Water Saving Tips while RV Camping

Take the following list of 10 tips that can help you save water while RV camping:

1. Inspect the holding tank heater for the water supply of the RV to make sure it is functioning properly, as well as to set the thermostat at the appropriate temperate for the living space during the RV camping trip.

2. When out hiking for the day or when the family is otherwise occupied outside of the RV for the majority of the day, it is wise to always remember to temporarily turn the water heater to a low setting, thus reducing the amount of heat and therefore water being wasted.

3. Prior to leaving for your RV camping trip, consider wrapping the water lines with inline pipe heaters, throughout the entirety of the water line.

4. Fix all leaky faucets! Even with an RV on a short RV camping trip, the water wasted from a leaky faucet can accumulate. Keep in mind that over the course of a year, one leaky faucet in your RV can potentially waste up to 3,280 gallons of water!
