If your RV does not have a gravity feed inlet for filling your water tanks, you can create a portable water pump to handle the duties. If you do much boondocking, it will soon pay for itself in time and fuel to move your RV to a water source.
My review of the Bell 4 Forty MTB helmet.
Why I do not like full coverage helmets
Shifting the front pad did get the sweat channeling system to work as advertised.

Jofa Mouthguard was my preferred face protection.
A way faster dude and better photo of Jofa
Back in the day before full coverage helmets were the norm in motocross, many of us preferred an open face helmet with the Jofa mouthguard. Better ventilation and when you got into the lead (a rarity for me) you could unsnap one side and get direct access to big gulps of air. I tried full coverage helmets off and on over the years, but not only did I find them stifling, I thought the protruding faceguard provided too much leverage and would increase the risk of a neck/spinal/concussion injury.
Sticking with my open face helmets, I did get a bloody nose once and a busted lip, but I always preferred that kind of risk to the far greater, in my opinion, potential consequences of spinal or TBI due to the leverage provided by the protruding face guard.
I know Danny Chandler was wearing a full coverage helmet when he was paralyzed. I think David Bailey was in full coverage when he was paralyzed. Ricky James was wearing full coverage. Ernesto Fonsenca wore full coverage, too.
I am unable to find any actual statistical evidence or studies that prove one way or the other. Motocrossers, off-road racers, and down hill mountain bikers could benefit from some research.
