Solar-Light Night

qt-solar-light

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

qt-plastic-drawers

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

qt-refridgerator-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

qt-shower-head

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 »

RV Broom and Dust-Mop Storage

QT-broom-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

QT-Bathlight

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

QT-trash-can-cover-step-2

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 »

Cheers!

QT-toilet-drawing3

July 19, 2016

  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 »
