Look what showed up this week! Our RV Parts Catalog!

RV Parts Catalog

Our 2015 RV parts Catalog has been in the works for a number of weeks now & it has finally been pulled off the press. We’ve printed several RV parts Catalogs over the years, but I must say – this is the sleekest yet. With over 50 new fender models, smoked skylights, skylight sealant and various other additions – this is our largest yet.

Customers will have the option of adding this RV Parts Catalog to their orders in the coming weeks.

‘Find it Online’

One new thing we decided to do with this catalog is add a placeholder for fender skirts that are in development at the time of printing. We always have a new fender coming & this was a way to include them in the catalog. Soon after printing every part will be available on our Lookup tool, Lookup-Our-Skirts.com, so it tells you to go there for more info on that model. The listings on the catalog look like this:

Originally installed Skylights will yellow & crack with age. Improve the look AND prevent leakage with a newly installed dome. Update the look as well, by choosing a color that matches the unit & style. Options include Clear, Smoke & White.

Waste water capacity is often a constraint when “Boondocking” or “Dry Camping”. A lot of RV’s come with smaller waste tanks, or none at all. Increase the RV’s utility by plumbing in a new, larger tank or a set of tanks for black & grey water.

RV Fender Skirts on a 1999 Thor Citation, Before & After

RV Fender Skirts that are originally installed often become faded, cracked & worn out – just from normal use. Not to mention, tire blow outs & road debris also takes a toll. If you are looking to improve the look & value of your RV easily – look no further than a nice new set of fender skirts.

RV Fender Skirt: Before

Here is what a recent customers unit looked like before their new ICON RV Fender Skirt arrived:

Notice that it is Yellow with sun fading. Cracks have begun to spread from the mounting screws. It’s clear that this fender has been weathered on this ’99 Thor Citation. The owner thought so too & came to ICON to get a new part.

RV Fender Skirt: After

To brighten & modernize any unit – a new fender can do wonders. Take a look at the new unit below. The yellowing is gone & the whole side of the trailer looks brand new. All done with simply changing one part.

Replacing an RV Waste Holding Tank – Black OR Grey Water

Having to replace an original holding tank can seem like a huge task, but for the ‘Do it yourself’ minded – it can often be a lot simpler than first thought. Here’s how it goes:

  1. You’ll want to measure out your original tank (and any extra area that would allow you to upgrade to a larger tank) to allow you to find an appropriate replacement. Planning out and ‘mapping’ your plumbing is also part of this initial step. Make note of drain location on the original tank and any extra fittings/components that you may require to hook up the new tank.

  2. Find a replacement. Comparing by dimensions, you’ll want to locate one that will fit in the area measured in step 1. You’ll also want to consider how you will be mounting the tank. Replacements have a 1.25″ flange for mounting with brackets or screws, so ensure you’ll have room for whichever method.
  3. Remove your old tank if you haven’t already. Typically it involves removal of some screws and/or sliding the tank out of “L” type brackets. You may need to cut out some plumbing fittings and pull out some of the pipes to help configure the new tank.
  4. Figure out where to install the intakes on the new tank by putting it into place temporarily and marking where the inputs should be cut. Precision is important here – measure/mark twice, cut once!
  5. Pull the holding tank back out and use a cup saw to drill the input holes. There is usually one input (2″  fitting or 3″ fitting) and a vent (1.5″ fitting) in most configurations. Install the fitting using an ABS Glue and allow time to cure.

  6. While the tank is curing prepare all input plumbing to be installed in the tank (appropriate fittings, make sure they are cleaned and make certain you have glue ready).
  7. Place the tank back in & secure. Ensure the tank is lined up with all inputs. Use straps or banding to provide additional support to the belly of the tank.
  8. Connect all inputs with the appropriate fittings & glue. You’re done!
