Take Command


November 24, 2015

  To help quickly find reward cards while traveling, and to reduce clutter, I mounted a business card holder in our motorhome’s cockpit on the dash face using 3M Command Strips. Now, when we stop for fuel, the reward cards are easy to locate. Joe and Darlene Torrez | Santa Maria, California  

Sound ad-Vise


November 24, 2015

  When trying to install the cover on my motorhome, I had a hard time passing the straps with the plastic buckles under the coach. My solution to the problem is to attach small locking pliers to the buckle and throw the buckle under the rig. The weight of the pliers makes it easier for the buckle... Read more »

Weight Up


October 26, 2015

  When flat-towing a dinghy vehicle, it’s important your motorhome has a mud flap that works. Some of the loose-bristle or brush-type flaps seem to reach a horizontal position when the motorhome is traveling at highway speeds. My solution was to attach a long piece of 1¼-inch galvanized pipe... Read more »

Noodle Kneeler


October 26, 2015

  As an aging RVer, I found that tasks such as checking tire pressure and doing other needful services close to the ground has become more difficult, especially when getting back up from a kneeling position. I built a helpful device out of a scrap-wood frame, pool-noodle handles and a couple of... Read more »

T For a Tight Seal


September 29, 2015

  I recently traded to a coach with residential appliances and found that I did not like the method used to strap the refrigerator doors together to prevent opening during travel. I cut a “T” fitted to the door handles to secure the doors and now I just slip the T into place and the doors stay... Read more »

Parkour Punks


September 29, 2015

  On a couple of occasions, teenage boys engaged in parkour (overcoming urban obstacles by climbing or leaping) and attempted to gain access to our roof via our motorhome’s permanent ladder, despite the extension part of the ladder not being there. To combat this behavior, I installed a metal... Read more »

What Price, Vanity?


August 24, 2015

  I never thought that I would reach the age where I could not open a vanity door. Turns out I was wrong. My motorhome has a vanity cabinet that has a small tab-type pull at the bottom of the bathroom mirror. I began having a hard time getting a hold of the tab and, once I did, the magnet made it nearly... Read more »

Buckle Up


August 24, 2015

  Whenever the sofa in our motorhome was opened to use as a bed, the seat belts ended up on the floor behind the couch. Retrieving the belts, when needed for passengers, was a real pain. To alleviate that problem, we attached self-sticking hooks below the window behind the sofa and hang the belts on... Read more »

Fence the Hose In


July 22, 2015

  I needed a new sewer hose carrier for my RV. According to reviews of the Valterra EZ hose carrier, the inside diameter seems to be a half-inch smaller than the fittings on most sewer hoses, so I decided to make my own since trimming the hoses to fit didn’t make much sense. I bought a 5-inch-square... Read more »

Top-Shelf Storage


July 22, 2015

  After many years of family camping, my husband and I stepped up to a Class C motorhome. While spending three months in Florida last winter, I was determined to find more storage space in the coach. I fashioned a shelf unit for the bathroom that utilizes empty space and affords us extra storage for... Read more »
