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 »

RV Broom and Dust-Mop Storage


August 26, 2016

  We travel for months at a time in our 25-foot Class C, and are always looking for efficiency and simplicity in storage and daily life in the motorhome. To stow our broom and dust mop when not in use, I mounted spring-loaded clips ($2-$3 each) to the ceiling of the outside storage compartment.... Read more »

Light the Way


August 25, 2016

  We purchased a new motorhome that did not come with illuminated on/off control switches. When entering the RV in the dark we could not see the various control switches mounted low by the entry wall. Additionally, finding the bathroom-light or fan switches in the dark in the middle of the night... Read more »

A Bigger Bin


July 19, 2016

  My husband and I love our new Class B-plus 25-foot motorhome, but found the 6-quart trash can for the galley’s built-in countertop garbage chute did not meet our needs. To increase the trash capacity, my husband cut the top 3 inches off the plastic trash can, and I placed a tall kitchen garbage... Read more »

  Cleaning the black holding tank can be difficult, especially on motorhomes without a flushing system. I’ve found the best way to be certain our tank is clean is to visually verify it is empty. To do this, I use a sturdy plastic cup I modified to hold the toilet valve open. I cut the bottom... Read more »

Get Your Foot in the Door


June 29, 2016

  To keep the floors clean, we always remove our shoes when entering our motorhome. That made the entryway a jumble of footwear until I found an adjustable two-tier shoe rack at The Container Store. I placed the rack on its side behind a chair next to the door. Because the rack is adjustable, it... Read more »

Blow Dry


June 29, 2016

  Are you tired of having to use so much elbow grease to wash and dry your motorhome or dinghy vehicle? A quick tip is to wash the vehicle with a brush, and then rinse and blow-dry with a leaf blower. Works slick. Diane Sears | Livingston, Texas  

Chutes and a Ladder


May 23, 2016

  I own a 40-foot American Eagle motorhome with a storage area that goes all the way across underneath the coach. I bought a folding ladder from Camping World (item No. 20319) that folds down to about 4 inches square. I wanted to be able to put the ladder in the storage area and get it out again... Read more »

Shower Matters


May 23, 2016

  After checking out the price of teak shower mats, I decided to make my own, cheap, wooden mat. I bought pressure-treated lumber and decking screws to craft this gizmo. I made the size of the mat to fit conveniently on the bottom of my storage compartments when it’s not in use. The mat works... Read more »
