Bringing More to the Table


July 22, 2015

  Our 2012 Jayco Seneca is like many motorhomes that have a dining table that can be lowered and made into an extra bed. It is convenient, but makes for a very small table. Only my wife and I could comfortably sit at ours, so having guests always meant we ate outdoors. My wife came up with an idea... Read more »

Odor Eater


June 27, 2015

  The most commonly accepted procedure to follow when preparing your refrigerator/freezer for storage is: A) Shut it off; B) Remove all contents; C) Clean thoroughly; D) Sprinkle baking soda to control odor; and E) Leave the doors open. Steps A through C are fine, but the last two have their drawbacks.... Read more »

Easy to Handle


June 27, 2015

  In order to protect the RV’s screen door from damage due to overzealous hands, many RVers use door handles. Our favorite is the Camco Screen Door Cross Bar ($15.89) available at Camping World. To make a good idea an even better one, attach a second Cross Bar – this one much lower – to protect... Read more »

Hook and Loop


June 27, 2015

  I take my jewelry box with me when we travel south for the winter. I needed something else for my longer necklaces, so I attached 3M Command picture-hanging strips in two rows inside my wardrobe on the side wall. The strips can be removed cleanly, do not require drilling and do not leave damaging... Read more »

Save the Clinking for Toasts


May 27, 2015

  We love our wine, so when my husband installed a hanging wine glass rack and I placed the glasses on the rack, I was not happy to find that the glasses clinked together when we were driving. No one wants broken glasses, and I did not want plastic wine glasses, so we slipped some can koozies over... Read more »

Shower Stall Stand


May 27, 2015

  Our current motorhome did not have any shelves inside the shower. So we purchased a corner shower caddy on a spring-loaded pole in the household department of a discount department store. We had to cut a little off of the metal pole to fit the height of our motorhome’s shower, but other than... Read more »

Coffee Cabinet


April 23, 2015

  Our Roadtrek motorhome came with a built-in coffeemaker that took up too much space. Add that to the fact that we prefer French-press coffee, and you can see that the drip coffeemaker had to go. The original built-in coffeemaker slid out of its housing easily enough; we then built a small cupboard... Read more »

GPS Grabber


April 23, 2015

  I love the convenience a GPS offers for routing my trips. However, my GPS unit’s suction cup will not stick to my motorhome’s textured dashboard, and mounting it on the windshield puts it out of reach, so I built a mount to hold it upright. My co-pilot can remove the unit (which is stuck to... Read more »

Parking Pipes


April 23, 2015

  Although I lost my wife, co-pilot and navigator a few years ago, I still travel in my motorhome and continue to enjoy the lifestyle. Since I no longer have someone to guide my 36-foot coach into RV sites in a position that allows room for the slideouts, I came up with a great solution that cost... Read more »

More Elbow Room


March 30, 2015

As a larger than normal size human, I find it challenging to fit in the limited confines of our motorhome’s shower. My wife devised a solution that gives me enough room to actually turn around without inadvertently sticking to and wrapping the shower curtain around my shoulders as I move. She obtained... Read more »
