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 »

Bringing More to the Table


July 22, 2015

  Our 2012 Jayco Seneca is like many motorhomes that have a dining table that can be lowered and made into an extra bed. It is convenient, but makes for a very small table. Only my wife and I could comfortably sit at ours, so having guests always meant we ate outdoors. My wife came up with an idea... Read more »

Odor Eater


June 27, 2015

  The most commonly accepted procedure to follow when preparing your refrigerator/freezer for storage is: A) Shut it off; B) Remove all contents; C) Clean thoroughly; D) Sprinkle baking soda to control odor; and E) Leave the doors open. Steps A through C are fine, but the last two have their drawbacks.... Read more »

Easy to Handle


June 27, 2015

  In order to protect the RV’s screen door from damage due to overzealous hands, many RVers use door handles. Our favorite is the Camco Screen Door Cross Bar ($15.89) available at Camping World. To make a good idea an even better one, attach a second Cross Bar – this one much lower – to protect... Read more »

Hook and Loop


June 27, 2015

  I take my jewelry box with me when we travel south for the winter. I needed something else for my longer necklaces, so I attached 3M Command picture-hanging strips in two rows inside my wardrobe on the side wall. The strips can be removed cleanly, do not require drilling and do not leave damaging... Read more »
