  I needed a new sewer hose carrier for my RV. According to reviews of the Valterra EZ hose carrier, the inside diameter seems to be a half-inch smaller than the fittings on most sewer hoses, so I decided to make my own since trimming the hoses to fit didn’t make much sense.

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.

  Many owners of Class A motorhomes find it difficult to replace, or even add, a quart or two of oil during a trip.
