Stationary Soap Dispenser

January 27, 2014

  Rather than have soap bouncing around in the sink or taking up space on a shelf in my motorhome, I installed a countertop soap dispenser next to the kitchen sink. It is a simple matter of drilling a hole through the counter in accordance with the instructions on the package, but first make sure... Read more »

No More Shower Door Leaks

ShowerSeal

December 23, 2013

The seal on the bottom of my motorhome’s shower door leaked. The small piece of plastic on the bottom of the door rubbed off and broke. I solved the problem by installing an RV rain gutter upside down. I attached it as close to the bottom as possible without rubbing the bottom frame. It works great.... Read more »

Out of Sight

add-a-drawer

December 23, 2013

We needed extra storage drawers in our motorhome, so I utilized the space under the sink in the galley. I removed the top shelf from the cabinet, mounted the drawers to the shelf and then reinstalled the shelf. The drawers are out of sight and it’s a great place to store small items. I also added two... Read more »

Hose Holder

November 29, 2013

At my house, the spigot I use to fill my fresh-water tank is about 40 feet from the RV. It used to be that, when I turned on the spigot, the water pressure blew the filler nozzle out of the horizontal inlet. I grew tired of walking back and forth and replacing it several times before the tank was full.... Read more »

Bottle Bungee

November 29, 2013

The wire retainer for the lower door shelf on my Norcold refrigerator was insufficient to keep bottles and containers from falling off the shelf while traveling or opening the door. To solve the problem, I used a length of 1-inch-wide braided elastic with loops sewn in the ends. The loops slip over the... Read more »

CURBSIDE CONVENIENCE

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 »

  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. Ron McNevin | Centerville,... Read more »
