13 Tips to Green Your RV Galley

11. RV refrigerators are absorption type which are slow to cool and recover. Chill or freeze items at home first, then let the refrigerator cool overnight before filling it for your trip.

12. Pre-clean dishes with a rubber scraper, not running water.

13. Slow cookers are popular with RVers, but choose one with a metal insert, not heavy crockery. It's lighter and dual-purpose. For example, the metal pan can be used to brown meat on the stove before slow cooking.
