Every once in a while, I come across a new RV product that is simple in concept yet meets an important need. The Plug Saver from GR Innovations is one such product. Indeed, the concept and design of this product is so clever that when I first saw it, I said to myself, “gee, why didn’t I think of that?” Constructed of thick plastic, this item fits snugly on the end of your camper’s 7-way connector to keep out dirt, water, and debris. As you know, having a dirty and rusty connector can create all kinds of electrical issues. Discovering such problems when you’re about to leave on a trip is, perhaps, one of the worst scenarios you can find yourself in, especially when you’re taking time off from work. As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound a cure. Having a Plug Saver on your RV’s connector, along with a thin coating of dielectric grease over the metal contacts, can prevent electrical problems, and at only $6.99, you’ll hardly notice the hit to your wallet. If you’re interested in buying one of these for your rig, you can also buy a Plug Saver with the tether.
