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 »

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

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 »

Weight Up

QT-mudflap-protector2

October 26, 2015

  When flat-towing a dinghy vehicle, it’s important your motorhome has a mud flap that works. Some of the loose-bristle or brush-type flaps seem to reach a horizontal position when the motorhome is traveling at highway speeds. My solution was to attach a long piece of 1¼-inch galvanized pipe... Read more »

Noodle Kneeler

October 26, 2015

  As an aging RVer, I found that tasks such as checking tire pressure and doing other needful services close to the ground has become more difficult, especially when getting back up from a kneeling position. I built a helpful device out of a scrap-wood frame, pool-noodle handles and a couple of... Read more »

T For a Tight Seal

QT-refridge-protector-2

September 29, 2015

  I recently traded to a coach with residential appliances and found that I did not like the method used to strap the refrigerator doors together to prevent opening during travel. I cut a “T” fitted to the door handles to secure the doors and now I just slip the T into place and the doors stay... Read more »

Parkour Punks

QT-ladder-protector

September 29, 2015

  On a couple of occasions, teenage boys engaged in parkour (overcoming urban obstacles by climbing or leaping) and attempted to gain access to our roof via our motorhome’s permanent ladder, despite the extension part of the ladder not being there. To combat this behavior, I installed a metal... Read more »
