Spray-Head Holder

QT-Toilet-sprayer-hook

October 24, 2014

We found that the holder for the toilet spray head on the side of the toilet was in an inconvenient location. It required bending over to pick up the sprayer and if I forgot that there is a cabinet over the toilet when I stood up, it added scars to a head that has enough scars from being chewed on by... Read more »

More Prep Space

QT-sink-w-cutting-board

October 24, 2014

Our motorhome just doesn’t have enough counterspace, so I inserted a cutting board into the galley sink edges. It fits perfectly and I still have room for a colander to wash fruits and vegetables. Pete Chiarolanzio | Florham Park, New Jersey    

Outside Temperature Sensor

QT-temperature-Sender

October 24, 2014

  I have a SkyScan digital clock that displays inside and outside temperature. After trying to find a location, when parked, that the outside transmitter unit could sense air temperature without being in direct sun any part of the day, I decided to place it in a wheel well on top of the tire. That... Read more »

Keep Critters Out

QT-black-tank

September 25, 2014

  We used to dry camp within 200 miles of home and only dumped our black-water tank when we returned. With just the two of us, we can do two weeks on the black tank easily in our 1999 Fleetwood Flair 34D. For gray water, we have an on-board two-stage filtration and disinfection package so that was... Read more »

SOLID SATELLITE AIMING

satellite-dwg3-mod

August 27, 2014

  After aiming my roof-mounted satellite dish for the best reception, I found that a stiff breeze could undo all of my careful work. Sometimes the wind would cause slight rotation; other times the dish would tip ever so slightly. In either case, my precise aiming would be compromised. To keep the... Read more »

SALT ON THE SIDE

knifeholder2-mod

August 27, 2014

  The butcher-block knife rack in our motorhome’s galley is held in place with hook-and-loop fasteners. I screwed a small metal rack onto the side of the block. Now, the salt, pepper and garlic salt are always available to use and they’re no longer sliding across the counter.   Arlene and... Read more »

Hold Tight

10MT-holdtight

July 29, 2014

  Outdoor tablecloths often fly up in the wind. Commercial hold-down springs are too small for the thick concrete or very thick wooden tables found in many parks. At the hardware store, I bought a couple feet of 6-inch PVC pipe and sliced the piping into 2-inch-wide circular sections. Then I made... Read more »

Portable Solar Light

10MT-Portable-light

July 29, 2014

  Individual solar-lamp assemblies are available at many hardware stores and home centers, and they make nice light sources while camping. In order to place the solar light in the sun for charging, it needs to be portable. Cover or paint a 13- to 16-ounce coffee can or a 1-gallon paint can. Cut... Read more »

Water Blotter

chamois-mod

June 20, 2014

The countertop around the kitchen faucet in my galley constantly gets wet, and the water runs down the surface and affects other items sitting on the counter. I was tired of the mess, so I bought a cloth chamois. I made a template out of paper, traced the template on the underside of the chamois and... Read more »

Easier Cable Connectors

no-more-pushing2

June 20, 2014

As I’ve gotten older, it’s more difficult for me to line up and screw in the coaxial cable from the campground into the connection on my RV … not to mention the sometimes-awkward locations of the cable connections at the campgrounds. Throw in darkness and/or a little rain, and the problem is compounded. A... Read more »
