PERSONAL WINDSHIELD WASHER

squeejee clips

October 17, 2012

My previous Class A motorhome had a factory-installed window washing squeegee held in place with spring clips under the hood. My latest unit had no such extra, so I decided to make my own. I bought a telescoping squeegee and a package of two spring clips — the kind used for hanging brooms and such... Read more »

Win the Rug War

floor protector

October 11, 2012

Because our motorhome came with light beige carpet, it is extremely difficult to keep clean — especially with grandkids along. I tried using the adhesive plastic film, but this is a pain to install and it had to be redone frequently. I tried using area rugs, but they would creep and bunch in the middle... Read more »

Drying Dishes in an RV

September 18, 2012

The kitchen counter in our RV is too small to hold a conventional dish drain board. Using an idea we saw in our travels through Italy, I purchased a 10-by-22-inch plastic-coated wire shelf assembly from Walmart, and hung it upside down over the galley sink. I installed four eyebolts through the underside... Read more »

Drying Wet Clothes in an RV

hangout to dry2

September 13, 2012

I have a method for hanging wet things in a freestanding shower that is similar to the Quick Tip “Hung Out to Dry” in the June issue. I obtained a ¾-inch-diameter piece of PVC conduit (PVC pipe will work as well), and notched both ends a little less than halfway through the conduit to fit the width... Read more »

Overhead Organization

canvas storage

September 11, 2012

Collapsible cube-shaped canvas storage boxes make great overhead storage bins for our 1999 Winnebago. We bought them in different colors to organize each family member’s clothing and gear. We also use the smaller ones for personal toiletries in the bathroom’s overhead storage compartment. Denny Barry... Read more »

Quick Tips: Silence Your RV Shades

RV Shade Holder

September 10, 2012

Driving a motorhome is a task that requires your full attention and the last thing you want is to be distracted by your window shades while steering 30,000 pounds down the road. In many coaches, the front passenger seat window as well as the driver’s side window and the entry door have a retractable... Read more »

Table Tip

Lazy Susan

September 7, 2012

Sometimes the dining table in our Roadtrek is just too large. If the weather is nice, we prefer to eat outside, but we still want a small table in the front section of the motorhome. We took a small lazy Susan and attached a spare table leg base to it and now we have a little cocktail-type table. By... Read more »

Quick Tips: Keep Your King Bed Covered

RV King Bed Sheet Tip

September 3, 2012

I created this solution for a king-size bed where it is difficult to get a fitted sheet on because the bed is blocked on three sides. I purchased two double-size flat sheets, placed them together, and then sewed them across the bottom and halfway up each side. I put this on top of the mattress, no tucking... Read more »

Quick Tips: Simple Hose Control

Hose Manifold

August 28, 2012

I have hoses to the water softener and filter, coach city-water inlet, macerator and holding tank flush on my motorhome, and I have been using a group of Y hose connectors that have not worked very well. To simplify the process, I used good old American ingenuity and built a water manifold that has the... Read more »

Quick Tips: Stop Pantry Slide

Can Divider

August 22, 2012

I got tired of my canned goods sliding all over and making noise while traveling in my motorhome, so I bought a lingerie divider and put it in my pantry cabinets. Now everything is held in place, even the cooking oil, when I arrive in camp. You can put together as many of the dividers as you need, and... Read more »
