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 »

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 »

Get Your Foot in the Door

QT---Shoe-Holder-1

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

QT---Blower

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

ladder-storage

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

066-MH1606-Quick-Tips

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 »

Freshwater Flume

QT---bottom-tubing

April 21, 2016

We had a problem in our Class C motorhome with the gravity-fill freshwater tank taking a long time to accept water. The freshwater tank is under the bed and the fill is on the same side of the motorhome. A plastic hose, 4 or 5 feet long, channels water from the outside fill port to the freshwater tank... Read more »

Dashboard Dish

QT---Good-sam-GPS2

April 21, 2016

We recently purchased a Rand-McNally Good Sam RV GPS. Its sole mount is a large suction cup, inconveniently intended for windows or windshields only. To make the GPS readily movable yet stable, we mounted it on an inverted salad plate and set it on the dash in our motorhome. The glossy, porcelain surface... Read more »

Whisk Away the Broom

QT---dog-leash

March 22, 2016

Ever notice how the front steps just inside the door of your motorhome get dirty with little pebbles and whatnot? Mine aren’t anymore. I attached a small whiskbroom to a retracting dog leash that’s attached under a chair located inside the entrance door. This setup works great because the broom... Read more »

Handy Temperature Control

QT---thermostat

March 22, 2016

Our Class A gasser has the heat/air-conditioning control located above the entry door. The thermostat controller is LCD and mounted too high for me to see clearly. I have to perch over the steps leading down and light the display with a flashlight with one hand in order to try to set temperatures and... Read more »
