Slide Stopper

January 20, 2017

  I’ve had problems with the cushions in most of my motorhomes sliding out of place while the vehicle was moving (and sometimes while sitting on them). My solution has worked well over the years. I simply stapled rubberized drawer liner to the plywood platform below the cushions, which stops the... Read more »

Icemaker Platform

January 20, 2017

  As do many other owners of motorhomes with the standard RV refrigerator, I got tired of buying bags of ice or fiddling with ice-cube trays in an already small and packed freezer compartment. I bought a portable icemaker to solve the supply problem, but was then faced with where to operate the... Read more »

Step Up

December 22, 2016

  We use our aerobic stepper as an entry step to our motorhome, and as an aerobic stepper to stay fit while on the road. We like using the stepper as an entry step as opposed to a folding step due to the overall size of the step, its non-slip surface, the fact that it’s lightweight and easy to... Read more »

Dish Defender

December 22, 2016

  In our motorhome, nothing in the cabinets stayed in place while we were on the road. I came up with a good solution. I started with a ¾-inch-thick white pine board and trimmed it to the depth of the cabinets. I then took ¾-inch-diameter wooden dowel rods and cut them down to 4-inch segments.... Read more »

Solar-Light Night

November 23, 2016

  I always enjoy a well-lit campsite, but hate having electrical cords strewn everywhere. My solution involves solar lights and flower pots. My husband bored a hole into the base of a flower pot and inserted a solar patio-type light. I don’t need to use the stakes that come with the lights, as... Read more »

Happy Storage Day

November 23, 2016

  As new retirees, my husband and I purchased a 1999 Fleetwood Southwind with the idea that we would see if we were cut out for this form of travel. One thing I quickly discovered was that we did not have sufficient storage. To remedy this problem, I purchased some plastic drawers from a home-improvement... Read more »

Reefer Restraint

October 26, 2016

  For people whose motorhomes feature refrigerators that did not come with door locks for travel, I have discovered just the item. I found a multipurpose appliance lock in the child-safety area of my local home-improvement store. For less than $6, they come two to a package. The brand I selected... Read more »

Wanderful

October 26, 2016

  The outside shower in our motorhome’s utility bay is difficult to use, and when it’s removed it must be held in one hand, which makes washing both hands or other items awkward. I looked for a number of solutions and found that a 3M Command Strips adhesive-hook broom holder is perfect to easily... Read more »

Quick Tips: Bayonet Busters

Quick Tip

September 27, 2016

  After bayonet-type fittings have been in service for a few weeks, disassembling the connections for packing away the sewer hose can become a chore. And, as we continue to age, our grip becomes a little less firm. So, looking at the water-filter canister for my freshwater system, I came up with... Read more »

Quick Tips: Closed Carry

sewer hose holder

September 27, 2016

  I own a 29-foot Class B-plus motorhome and have never had a place to put the sewer hoses. The owner’s manual says to store the hoses in an exterior compartment, which only causes a mess. I purchased two hose carriers and spray-painted a portion to match the paint scheme on the motorhome. I am... Read more »
