Shower Rod

May 22, 2017

  Living full time in our motorhome, I soon found out that there was little room to hang clothes that needed to air-dry after washing. After several items I put in the dryer shrunk to an unusable size, I knew I had to find a better way. I repurposed a closet tension rod that I use for refrigerator... Read more »

Hook ’Em!

May 22, 2017

  The oven in our RV is a microwave convection, and we found that we use the microwave far more often than the convection function. So, we needed a way to keep the large convection racks in a convenient but out-of-the-way place. I came up with the idea of screwing two brass closet hooks to a high... Read more »

Put On the Squeeze

April 24, 2017

  Filling the coach and starting batteries is often a difficult task, and one that can be hazardous, but I found a way to simplify this messy job by repurposing a plastic bottle. A stand-on-its-head ketchup bottle and a piece of ¼-inch plastic tubing make an excellent battery water filler. Remove... Read more »

Counter Productive

April 24, 2017

  The kitchen counterspace in our Class B motorhome is a bit small. I went to a local kitchen counter remodeler and bought a scrap of counter that was cut out for a sink. The 20-by-20-inch piece increased our counter by 400 square inches. The add-on is held in place by a piece of angle aluminum,... Read more »

Tag It

March 29, 2017

  After driving away with my motorhome’s water hose still attached, I looked for a way to make sure I didn’t forget anything so critical the next time I broke camp. A paper checklist seemed too clumsy, so I searched for a solution that worked better for me. I finally hit on beach-towel clips... Read more »

Bag It

March 29, 2017

  I love the big 7-inch screen on my GPS. What I don’t love is that after a few bumps on the road, I need to stretch forward and straighten the screen up so I can read it better. The solution I found was to cut the side out of a plastic sandwich bag and hold it over the mounting ball and snap... Read more »

Clutter Buster

February 28, 2017

  In the September 2016 issue, I read a lot of complaints about motorhomes not having enough counterspace. I did not see any real solutions, so I thought I would submit what I did to add counterspace. I constructed a simple addition to the dining table made from ¾-inch plywood, two 1-inch aluminum... Read more »

Wood Working

February 28, 2017

  I carry a selection of wooden blocks in my motorhome to put under the leveling jacks in case I park on a slope or over a soft spot. It can be difficult to position the blocks properly, and can often require bending down and reaching across a number of times, which can be hard on your knees and... Read more »

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 »
