RV X-Ray Vision: How To See Almost Anywhere

RV X-Ray Vision: How To See Almost Anywhere

RVs have lots of confined spaces. That can make it difficult for us DIY types to see what’s required to get a project done. But we’ve got a couple of tricks up our sleeve that allow us to see into and around many tight spaces. Sometimes, it’s almost like we have actual RV X-Ray vision!

These aren’t mind-blowing tricks that take innate abilities, special training, or extensive practice to master. As with everything we do on our rig, we try to figure out smarter, easier ways to get the job done. Not being professional RV technicians sometimes requires us to think outside the box to successfully tackle a project.

After you watch the video, please let us know what we’ve missed. We’re always learning, and if you’ve got some special tip for seeing into tight spots on your RV that we haven’t covered here, we’d love it if you shared with us, and everyone else here. After all, Group Think is the best problem solver.

I love this video. Great tips on how to use the cell phone. I also have a Borescope and have found it invaluable when doing repairs and upgrades to my RV.

Great video, I have most of the equipment you talk about except the selfie Stick. I like the one you have, can you tell me the brand/model. Also there are two things I see in your wet bay that I have a question about. We have a 2008 Newmar Ventana and our wet bay looks the same except. Where I have a paper towel holder you have what looks like a cover for a paper towel holder. When there's a breeze out mine unravels. And lastly, is that a light fixture above your hose reel?

Thanks, Don

Hey Don,

While looking through Newmar's online parts catalog today, we stumbled across the part number for the cover for our paper towel holder. It's part #49701. It doesn't look like that part # includes the metal bracket that holds the cover to the wet bay panel, but at least it's a start for identifying it with Newmar if you decide to order one from them.

Hope this helps!

Hi Don! Thanks for the nice comment and great questions. This is our selfie stick: http://amzn.to/2HywPy5 And yes, that is indeed a cover over the paper towel roll, and a soap dispenser (rotated upside down to prevent leaks) above the hose reel. Both of those items came installed directly from the factory. Probably some of the additional little items that get added as you move up the Newmar line. We're betting if you called their parts department and said you'd like to buy the paper towel cover that you've seen in the water bay on an '05 Mountain Aire, they probably can find it. Always great to hear from a fellow Newmar owner. :)
