CURBSIDE CONVENIENCE

tirehoseholder

October 30, 2013

  To make it more convenient to spray things off, I ran a hose from the street-side utility bay. A Y-fitting with valves was used to split the incoming water supply, and then the hose was routed across the basement to the curbside. I placed a hook near the curbside storage door so that the hose... Read more »

WATER HOSE HELPER

October 30, 2013

  Many smaller motor-homes have a water-tank filler inlet that is separate from the 
city water connection. Filling the tank often requires patience while holding the hose in place and adjusting the water flow to prevent the water from backing up. I bought a length of ½-inch clear plastic tubing... Read more »

LCD-Cliock

  An atomic digital wall clock is a fantastic item for RVers. It comes in many different sizes and always has the correct information when I need the time, date and indoor temperature.Arlene Chiarolanzio | Florham Park, N.J.

Hose Extender

Wiper-solution

October 1, 2013

  The exterior windshield washer hose on our motorhome 
developed a leak that prevented the washer fluid from 
reaching the windshield. There is usually enough play or 
excess hose to cut out the leaking section, however, finding an insert to connect the line and/or insert a portion into the... Read more »

Wiper Wrap

Wiper-protectors

September 4, 2013

  Windshield wiper blades can be quite expensive to replace. I discovered a cheap way to provide UV protection. I bought 3/8- to 1/2-inch foam pipe insulation, cut it in half and wrapped it around the blades. Now I have protection for the wipers and it cost me less than $2.

  Here’s a way to keep everything that might be needed in the utility bay area handy and organized. It will work for motorhomes with side-hinged doors.

Pantry Shelf Help

August 6, 2013

I own a 2008 Winnebago View H model that has a long, narrow and cavernous three-shelf pantry beside the refrigerator. Pulling a can of chili out was like sticking my hand into a rattlesnake hole! But I solved this problem by building 7-by-20-inch slide-out shelves and attaching them to the existing shelves.... Read more »

I glued corkboard to the inside of the 
pantry door in my motorhome. It was an 
easy way to store important papers like the phone number of where we were staying. 
Most importantly it cuts down on clutter.Kelli Sheppard | Conway, Ark.

Tricky Towel Bar

Towel-Rack

July 15, 2013

Our motorhome came with a bar right below the gas stovetop that we used as a towel bar. It was a nuisance to hold the towels up to access the drawers below. I had some small 3/4-inch oak boards and decided to make a towel rack that would mount on our refrigerator’s wood door.I drew the pattern onto... Read more »

Short Queen Beds

QuickTips Filler Image

April 1, 2013

With otherwise excellent RV equipment, there are still frequent complaints by tall people about short queen beds (60 by 75 inches). As a 6-foot 1-inch person who likes to sleep flat on his back, I found the 75-inch bed caused foot cramps and toe pressure problems. My wife and I teamed up for an easy... Read more »
