Natural Bug Repellent

Bugs can be a big problem when you're trying to enjoy the great outdoors. Rather than reaching for a chemically-based spray or plugging in an electronic repellent, consider these natural ways to deter insects on your summer RV trips.

  • ·         Wear the right clothing. Mosquito's are attracted to the colors black and blue so think bright when dressing for your camping trip. Consider wearing pants and shirts with tight cuffs to prevent mosquito's from crawling underneath clothing.

  • ·         Avoid the lakefront campsite. Most bugs build nests near the water so it's best to avoid these areas. Request an RV spot away from standing water.

  • ·         Build a campfire. Campfires are one of the best parts of RV trips. An added bonus is that bugs don't like smoke! Keeping a campfire going is an easy way to naturally repel bugs.

  • ·         Botanical oil repellents. For a more natural approach to traditional insect repellent, check out citronella candles and eucalyptus or soybean oil. Citronella candles are easy to find at any convenience or grocery stores so stock up and place them around your campsite to use throughout the day. Eucalyptus and soybean oil can be applied directly to the skin.

  • ·         Don’t forget about an old school fly-swatter.

Have fun camping!

Synthetic Fifth-Wheel Grease

AMSOIL Synthetic Fifth-Wheel Grease is a heavy-duty lubricant engineered to provide outstanding protection and performance in the heavily-loaded, harsh operating environments specific to fifth-wheel hitches used in trucking and trailer applications.
Fifth-wheel hitches must be lubricated in order to minimize wear between the fifth-wheel plate and the trailer, ensure the trailer can pivot behind the pull vehicle (increasing fuel economy and reducing abnormal steering-component and tire wear) and reduce the tendency toward jackknifing. AMSOIL Synthetic Fifth-Wheel Grease is a heavy-duty lubricant engineered to provide outstanding protection and performance in the heavily-loaded, harsh operating environments specific to fifth-wheel hitches used in trucking and trailer applications.

New Premium Products from AMSOIL

AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin Transmission Fluid (MVT) and AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin Primary Fluid (MVP) are purpose-built for bikers who shy away from using a motor oil in their motorcycles’ transmissions or primary chaincases. Their introduction establishes secondary product recommendations in these applications, giving customers more options. 
Main Recommendations Unchanged
The main recommendation for motorcycle transmissions and primary chaincases remains AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oil (consult the Motorcycle Product Guide at for specific product recommendations). For current motorcycle customers who use AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oil, there’s no need to change anything. 
Although many bikers can attest to its outstanding performance in these applications and use AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oil without reservation, some motorcyclists are locked in on the belief that a motor oil cannot adequately protect motorcycle transmissions and chaincases. Instead, they prefer lubricants that are clearly labeled for their intended applications. AMSOIL has now satisfied this demand with AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin Transmission Fluid and AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin Primary Fluid. They are specifically designed for bikers who are reluctant to use multi-use lubricants, offering a full line of products to appeal to everyone. 
Deliver Peace of Mind
Most bikers want to project confidence when they ride, and nothing ruins confidence faster than killing the engine when attempting to start from a dead stop. AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin Transmission Fluid and Synthetic V-Twin Primary Fluid help riders shift smoothly and avoid killing the engine when starting. Riders can count on consistent clutch feel for confident takeoffs and more effective riding. On the highway, Synthetic V-Twin Transmission Fluid and Synthetic V-Twin Primary Fluid deliver a smooth, trouble-free ride, letting riders focus on the road instead of the performance of their bikes. 
Excellent Transmission Protection
AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin Transmission Fluid features a high-quality, durable formulation that resists shear. Its robust chemistry provides film strength to protect against damage from shock loading, while its extreme-pressure additives provide additional protection against gear wear. It is formulated to deliver quiet operation, helping eliminate loud thunks and gear noise. 
Outstanding Primary Chaincase Protection
AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin Primary Fluid is formulated with a balanced additive system that provides consistent clutch performance and feel. It helps riders easily find neutral while promoting smooth acceleration throughout all riding conditions. Its superior load-holding capacity helps prevent clutch slip for confident takeoffs. AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin Primary Fluid contains a heavy dose of anti-wear additives to protect the gears, chain and compensator bearing from premature wear, while resisting thermal breakdown and remaining fluid in low temperatures to reduce drag. 
AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin Transmission Fluid and AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin Primary Fluid are recommended for Harley-Davidson, Triumph and pre-2013 Indian bikes. 
Change Intervals
AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin Transmission Fluid is recommended for up to 20,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first. AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin Primary Fluid is recommended for up to 10,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first.
