Have Some Funnel

July 21, 2017

  Changing the oil on our Class A gas motorhome can be a hassle with the not-easy-to-reach oil inlet that is set back from the front of the coach. Using a large funnel and large clear plastic tube — with the funnel attached to the windshield wiper with a ball-bungee cord — makes the task easy. The... Read more »

Vinyl Answer

July 21, 2017

  On our way home after picking up our new motorhome, my wife and I experienced a blinding glare from a reflection of the sun off the horizontal portion of the sideview mirror support arms. After a bit of discussion, we hit upon the idea of covering the arms with matte or flat black sticky-back... Read more »

Foam Foiler

June 26, 2017

  As a longtime RVer I have learned that diesel fuel foams (or blows back if there is no auto stop). To help with the resulting mess, I take a full-size paper towel and fold it over from the top about 1 inch and continue until there is a 1-inch-wide folded paper towel. Wrap this around the end of... Read more »

How Cool Is That?

June 26, 2017

  We have always been concerned about our refrigerator’s interior temperature, especially while boondocking. After installing a residential model, we wanted to monitor the interior temperature at a glance. So, my husband placed the outside remote sender of our indoor-outdoor thermometer on a shelf... Read more »

Shower Rod

May 22, 2017

  Living full time in our motorhome, I soon found out that there was little room to hang clothes that needed to air-dry after washing. After several items I put in the dryer shrunk to an unusable size, I knew I had to find a better way. I repurposed a closet tension rod that I use for refrigerator... Read more »

Hook ’Em!

May 22, 2017

  The oven in our RV is a microwave convection, and we found that we use the microwave far more often than the convection function. So, we needed a way to keep the large convection racks in a convenient but out-of-the-way place. I came up with the idea of screwing two brass closet hooks to a high... Read more »

Put On the Squeeze

April 24, 2017

  Filling the coach and starting batteries is often a difficult task, and one that can be hazardous, but I found a way to simplify this messy job by repurposing a plastic bottle. A stand-on-its-head ketchup bottle and a piece of ¼-inch plastic tubing make an excellent battery water filler. Remove... Read more »

Counter Productive

April 24, 2017

  The kitchen counterspace in our Class B motorhome is a bit small. I went to a local kitchen counter remodeler and bought a scrap of counter that was cut out for a sink. The 20-by-20-inch piece increased our counter by 400 square inches. The add-on is held in place by a piece of angle aluminum,... Read more »

Tag It

March 29, 2017

  After driving away with my motorhome’s water hose still attached, I looked for a way to make sure I didn’t forget anything so critical the next time I broke camp. A paper checklist seemed too clumsy, so I searched for a solution that worked better for me. I finally hit on beach-towel clips... Read more »

Bag It

March 29, 2017

  I love the big 7-inch screen on my GPS. What I don’t love is that after a few bumps on the road, I need to stretch forward and straighten the screen up so I can read it better. The solution I found was to cut the side out of a plastic sandwich bag and hold it over the mounting ball and snap... Read more »
