RV CITY WATER INLET
We provide an insulated Aquor RV city water inlet connection with all of our homes. This inlet can connect to a standard RV drinking water hose.
RV WATER HOSE
COLD WEATHER DRINKING WATER HOSE
If you're parking in cold temperatures, you will want an insulated and heated RV drinking water hose for the winter months. Lengths vary.
50AMP RV POWER CORD
Your required length can vary based on where you park. You will need an 50amp RV power cord with a twist and lock on one end to connect to grid power.
Sewer & Drain
3" WASTE GATE VALVE
SEWER & DRAIN CONNECTION
We provide a 3" waste gate valve outfall for grey water and black water with all of our homes. Pending design, there may one or two of these. This inlet can connect to a standard RV sewer hose.
RV SEWER HOSE KIT
Your required length can vary based on where you park. Pending what you plan to do with your grey and black water, this hose will connect from your waste gate valve to your intended tank/septic.
RV WASTE TANK
PORTABLE SEWER TANK
If you're parking where you don't have access to an RV waste dump site or septic, this tank is portable and can be connected to a standard RV sewer hose and hauled to a dump site for emptying.
TONGUE JACK FOOT
TRAILER TONGUE JACK FOOT
We provide a manual trailer tongue jack foot to lift the home on and off of the haul vehicle. This jack can be used to both level and support your tiny home on gravel or paved/poured surface. Additional jacks needed.
HOUSE JACKS - OPTION 1
The length of your home will dictate how many stacker jacks you need (between 4-8). Suited for a paved/poured surface, not gravel, and those who do not move their home often. Cannot be used to level a home, only support.
HOUSE JACKS - OPTION 2
The length of your home will dictate how many scissor jacks you need (between 2-4). Suited for gravel or paved/poured surfaces. Cannot be used to level a home, only support. Should not be used for permanent or infrequent traveling.
WELDED JACK FEET
HOUSE JACKS - OPTION 3
These are great for both frequent travelers and those who do not move their home often. For both gravel or paved/poured surfaces, we can weld on (4) manual jack feet that can be used to both level and support your tiny home.
HOUSE JACKS - OPTION 4
The length of your home will dictate how many PT wood blocks you need (between 4-8). Suited for both gravel and paved/poured surfaces and for those who do not move their home often. Used for support only, not leveling.
If you purchase house jacks that cannot self level, only support, you will need a bottle jack. Pending the weight of your home, a 20-ton jack may be suitable. If you travel frequently, you may need a bottle jack for tire changes.
Access & Safety
HITCH LOCK THEFT PROTECTION
For added theft protection for those who cannot or do not want to remove their trailer hitch, a trailer hitch lock will help provide additional security.
PAVED OR POURED SURFACE
A paved/poured parking pad allows for easier leveling that lasts but can be expensive. Work not done by Backcountry Tiny Homes.
A compacted gravel pad is easier to remove in the future but provides enough stability for parking. Work not done by Backcountry Tiny Homes.
Concrete pillars can be placed at intervals along the trailer to act like a paved/poured surface. Work not done by Backcountry Tiny Homes.
Pending your exact situation, there may be other factors for you to consider when purchasing additional items for your tiny home. Here are some highlights that are worth reaching out to us to discuss before purchasing your home:
Skirting - for tiny homes in cold weather conditions, insulated skirting around your tiny home may be necessary to prevent "convection cooling" and heat loss.
Earth Anchors - for tiny homes in windy areas or home owners that have insurance that require tie downs, welded D-rings on your trailer and earth anchors may be a good solution.
Trailer Paint - for tiny homes that may frequent salt water areas like beaches or coast lines or find themselves traveling on salted roads frequently, we can request additional layers of paint to be proactive about possible corrosion.
Off-Grid Utility Connections - for tiny homes with off-grid solutions, such as solar, generator, propane, rainwater harvesting, freshwater tanks, and composting, your utility connections may change. Reach out to us to ask about them!
