How many RVers use a food saver to vacuum seal food as well as even RV spare parts as belts and some other items will supposedly last longer if stored vacuum sealed? I learned of the food saver when at Camp Freightliner but decided it's a good thing for buying in bulk and then freezing for long term storage until ready to use.

Do you use a Food Saver? Which one? Any experiences with it? Do share...

I think we did this thread back in January, @Neal. General gear suggestions

To recap, we have long-used a vacuum sealer, though we don't usually carry it in the coach. We probably should.

Got a Food Saver at Costco way back when and seal all of our bulk food purchases in individual portions. And, as you have suggested, I have also sealed a spare serpentine belt, Oasis pumps, spare 350A fuses, etc.

Excellent find! I searched on Food Saver and didn't get a hit so I figured I'd discuss it. I pulled out dinner for tonight and it was vacuum sealed so I figured I'd share (again) :)

Edit: I did a check as to why my search for "Food Saver" didn't return anything in case search on the site had an issue. I see that in that thread it's named "FoodSaver" - whew. I need to hone my search skills to be like @TJ&LadyDi :)

No worries, @Neal. I searched for "vacuum seal."

I started using Food Saver 10 years ago at home; and, once we retire, I will be sure to bring it with us.

Meat doesn't get freezer burnt as easily, vegetables stay fresh a lot longer, and it's nice for frozen meals. You can heat the bag right in boiling water.

Be sure to freeze any meals with liquid in it, such as soup, first before packing it in Food Saver bags; otherwise, the liquid gets sucked up into the machine. I make chili, veggie soup, casseroles etc. It's great to save time while camping.
