RV Product Testing

Product Testing by the Sanidumps.com Team

There are many new and improved products targeted at RVers these days, all promising to make your RVing easier, better, safer and cool. We have been RVing for over four decades and have bought many of these products and, frankly, have often been disappointed. Then there have been products that made modest promises and have overdelivered. It is very difficult to determine if a given product or service meets or exceeds the stated benefits.

There are many testimonials and reviews now available on the internet but many of these reviews are done by "product or category experts" and not by everyday "RVers". We are RVers on a budget and seeking to take our lifestyles with us. We look for products and services that fit our situation and meet our goals of making RVing safe, environmentally friendly and fun.

Our product reviews focus on DIY RVers. If this is you, then you may benefit from our reviews.

We have been approached by suppliers to test and comment on their products. Credibility is a big deal for us and as such we have decided that we will only write about products we have actually installed on our RVs and used. We share our outcomes with the supplier of the product before we post to ensure that they know what we experienced. In most cases suppliers have been very pleased with our perspective and findings and some have actually modified their products or service or re-targeted their offerings.

To do thorough product testing and research takes time. Soon we will start posting the results of the products under test and would welcome your comments, inputs or suggestions of additional products that you want us to test. Email your comments to info@sanidumps.com.

Water Counter


Description: An accurate fresh water meter for your RV or boat.

Why install a water meter when you already have sensors telling you how much water you have? The installed sensors are just guides and are not an accurate measure of water levels. If you boondock often like we do, you are always monitoring your power and water. With the advent of quiet portable generators and solar panels, power issues can be resolved, but we have been surprised more than once when our water has run out. We have had to pack up and leave several times as none was available for miles.

Grey Holding Tank Flushing Kit - DIY

Grey Holding Tank Flushing Kit

Description: I always wondered why (most) RV manufactures only installed tank flushing systems for the black holding tanks, I believe the grey tanks needs to be flushed also since they will also produce sewer gas.
