FUSE Accessories

Once we got the @Winnebago FUSE home. We made a list of the items we needed to either protect the RV, or make our camping experience more enjoyable:

Here is the list:

1) We bought Progressive Industries EMS-PT30X 30A Digital Surge Protector with Weather Shield.

You can also compare several other surge protectors here.

This is a complete protector for your RV. It prevents damage caused by large spikes in voltage, high and low conditions, as well as faulty wiring. Since a majority of the electrical damage to your RV comes from low or high voltage conditions instead of power surges at the pedestal you are connected. You need a Surge protector like this one, they cost more but they have more protection features:

  • There is a built-in lock bracket to secure the unit to the source of power to keep it from being stolen. We also use a

Master Lock 719D 3′ Long x 3/16′ Diameter Cable with Integrated Laminated Steel Padlock to keep it secured at the Campsite.

  • It will constantly test shore-power surges, cycle, and low and high voltage
  • Has a display which is very easy to read
  • There are extra diagnostics on this unit that I like, especially with the amps display because it helps me find out how many devices are simultaneously running
  • Works even under wet weather due to the built in Weather Shield.

2) We replaced the Winnebago Blue Hose used for Black Water with a Valterra D04-0250 Dominator 15′ Sewer Hose Kit.

The Dominator Sewer hose is longand better built than the “Blue Hose”, it also comes with a see-thru elbow so you can tell when the Black Water tank is clean. I did have to file the connections to make them a bit large so they would fit the FUSE Black Water connection.

3) We bought the Camco 55165 15M/30F 12″ PowerGrip Dogbone Electrical Adapter with Handle.

Allows us to connect to our Brick Home during the Winter months, so we do not have to winterize. Instead we run the Tank Heating Pads because we plan to travel in the winter.

4) When you live in Tornado alley you get used to having a Weather Alert radio around. 

You can click on the Image to see product description on Amazon.

The Midland WR-300 23 Code S.A.M.E. Weather Alert Radio offers S.A.M.E. technology (Specific Area Message Encoding), which pre-programs the device to receive only those warnings that apply to your local area. You can choose state, county, and/or nearby counties. The single-speaker radio offers 23 programmable county codes, AM/FM tuning, date, time, alarm functions, and automatically switches from AM/FM to pertinent all-hazard alerts. For tuning, the radio employs drift-free PLL (phase-lock loop) technology and an easy-to-read blue, backlit LCD. You get a convenient, 10-alert memory, and you can add, edit, and remove unwanted alerts at any time. The radio uses the supplied AC power adapter or four AA Batteries (not included).1-Year Limited Warranty.

5) Bicycles and RV’s go hand-in-hand. We bought the Swagman Traveler XC2-RV 2 Bike Carrier with Bumper Adaptor.

You can click on the Image to see product description on Amazon.

This platform hitch rack will allow you to carry 1 or 2 bicycles behind your RV, Motor home or 5th wheel. The rack fits into a 2″ class 3 hitch or with the use of the bumper adaptor (included) it can be mounted to a 4″ – 4.5″ continuously welded steel RV bumper. The bike rack has sliding wheel hoops that fit 20″-29″ wheels. Push button ratchet arms easily adjust to secure bike and provide easy bike loading and unloading. The arms fold down for easy access to your vehicle’s rear cargo area, or up for convenient storage. The arms have padded hooks to protect you bike frame. The rack is finished with a black powder coat to resist corrosion and rust. The Traveler XC2 bumper rack is covered under the swagman limited lifetime warranty.

Because the 2017 FUSE only has a 1-1/4″ hitch receiver, we added  

Reese Towpower 7020500 1-1/4″ to 2″ Receiver Adapter

 DSC_0361 (2)BikeRackPic1

The 2″ part holds the bike frame, and there is plenty of clearance so the bikes do not bang against the coach. Don’t forget to order extra Hitch Pins!

6) LevelMate Pro. Leveling your RV has never been easier.
