I’ve been writing about the development of this kit for months, you’ve had a chance to contribute suggestions, and now it’s here – and we’ve got a coupon for our readers!  The RV Survival Kit, whose prototype I described a couple weeks ago in this post, is now in final form and available for sale from  If you order your RV Survival Kit before the end of January, 2016, you can use the following coupon code to get $15 off the retail price:


RV Survival KitThe RV Survival Kit is intended to keep 2 people going for a couple of days in an emergency.  This is for the people.  There will be other kits coming out in the next few months that are aimed at the RV.  One of the kits will be intended for those who travel mainly to RV parks, and the other will be aimed at those who venture out into more “remote” areas.  The idea here is that you get one of the RV Emergency Kits depending on your style of camping; and then you get an RV Survival Kit to cover each pair of people in your RV.  So this first module is just the Survival kit.

Here are the contents of the survival kit:

Heavy-Duty Compact Utility Bag with Handle and Shoulder Strap1
Emergency Food Bar (2400 Calorie)2
Emergency Drinking Water Pouch (4.22oz)12
AquaTabs Water Purification Tablets10

Green Lightstick (12-Hour)2
Plastic Whistle with Lanyard1
Emergency Communications Card2
Particulate Dust Mask (N-95)2
Nitrile Gloves (Pair)4
Hand Sanitizer (2oz)1
Moist Towelette6
Emergency Survival Blanket2
Biohazard Waste Bag1
Waterproof Poncho2
Hand Warmer (Pair)4
Duct Tape (10 Yards)1
Waterproof Matches40
Notepad and Pencil1

One of the more interesting items in the kit is the hand-held, hand-cranked radio/phone charger/flashlight/kitchen-sink.  It doesn’t require batteries, so it’s perfect for an emergency kit (where you may forget to change the batteries periodically).   It will even charge your phone.  It looks like this:

And also, if you go to the page, you can see a picture of what the food bar looks like unwrapped.  To me, this looks like a big giant 2400 calorie sugar cookie and I’m hungry just looking at it.  It makes me wonder if these things would be good to take along on the bike.  I mean, if they’re that calorie dense, then that’s perfect for eating on the bike, right?  Are they as tasty as they look?  I don’t know, but expect a full review of the kit in a future post (where I’ll eat the food).

The other two kits will be coming in the next months, along with an “RV” section on  But in the meantime, go nuts with the coupon code!
