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 »

Start With a Clean Spigot

QT-bottle

February 24, 2016

Water-service contamination at RV parks is always a concern of mine. Some campgrounds have the water service next to the sewer outlet. Being an engineer, I can’t understand why this is legal. To sanitize the water-service hose bib at all parks I carry a bottle of bleach and water solution (1 tablespoon... Read more »

Hang On, Stay On

QT-10MT-clothes-hanger

February 24, 2016

Here’s an idea for keeping hangers on the rod so clothes don’t fall off during travel. I have been using a tension curtain rod in our RV’s wardrobe closet for years. It’s a quick fix that only cost $5. Buy a rod that is a bit longer than the closet rod and roll it out so that it fits snugly... Read more »

Put a Sock On It

QT---knitted-sock11-23

January 27, 2016

  A friend knitted us a little “sock” to put on the antenna crank handle inside our motorhome. When we crank up the antenna, we move the little sock to the gearshift lever in the cockpit and it stays there until we crank the antenna down. As long as that sock is on the gearshift lever, we will... Read more »

Overhead Shot

QT---Dometic-slideout-topper

January 27, 2016

  Over the years I have used various storage covers for my Class A motorhome and consistently had a problem with the sharp points protruding in the upper areas making holes in the cover. These holes significantly reduce the life expectancy of the cover. I tried many things during the past 12 years... Read more »

December 16, 2015

  My husband, Chuck, and I have read MotorHome for two years in preparation for buying our first RV, a new 25-foot Class B-plus motorhome. A recurring concern we read about was rattling and sometimes broken drinking glasses during transit. Knowing my husband would have no patience for the rattles... Read more »

No More Headaches

QT-cabinet-door-hinge

December 16, 2015

  We bought our first motorhome in December 2014. We love everything about it, except one small problem. Above the couch are two cabinets that open upward, but there aren’t any hinges to hold the cabinet doors up. After being hit in the head a few times, I found hinges at Home Depot. They are... Read more »

Take Command

QT-Reward-Card-Holder-1

November 24, 2015

  To help quickly find reward cards while traveling, and to reduce clutter, I mounted a business card holder in our motorhome’s cockpit on the dash face using 3M Command Strips. Now, when we stop for fuel, the reward cards are easy to locate. Joe and Darlene Torrez | Santa Maria, California

QT-strap-solution

November 24, 2015

  When trying to install the cover on my motorhome, I had a hard time passing the straps with the plastic buckles under the coach. My solution to the problem is to attach small locking pliers to the buckle and throw the buckle under the rig. The weight of the pliers makes it easier for the buckle... Read more »
