Bottle Bungee

November 29, 2013

The wire retainer for the lower door shelf on my Norcold refrigerator was insufficient to keep bottles and containers from falling off the shelf while traveling or opening the door. To solve the problem, I used a length of 1-inch-wide braided elastic with loops sewn in the ends. The loops slip over the... Read more »

CURBSIDE CONVENIENCE

October 30, 2013

  To make it more convenient to spray things off, I ran a hose from the street-side utility bay. A Y-fitting with valves was used to split the incoming water supply, and then the hose was routed across the basement to the curbside. I placed a hook near the curbside storage door so that the hose... Read more »

WATER HOSE HELPER

October 30, 2013

  Many smaller motor-homes have a water-tank filler inlet that is separate from the 
city water connection. Filling the tank often requires patience while holding the hose in place and adjusting the water flow to prevent the water from backing up. I bought a length of ½-inch clear plastic tubing... Read more »

bullet-board

August 6, 2013

I glued corkboard to the inside of the 
pantry door in my motorhome. It was an 
easy way to store important papers like the phone number of where we were staying. 
Most importantly it cuts down on clutter.Kelli Sheppard | Conway, Ark.

Brake Buddy Stealth

July 26, 2013

The braking system on your motorhome is a technical marvel, indeed. Anything that has the strength to put a stop to several tons of motorhome traveling up to 55 mph is robust, to say the least. But as fantastic as that may seem, those same braking systems were designed for that particular motorhome;... Read more »

Tricky Towel Bar

Towel-Rack

July 15, 2013

Our motorhome came with a bar right below the gas stovetop that we used as a towel bar. It was a nuisance to hold the towels up to access the drawers below. I had some small 3/4-inch oak boards and decided to make a towel rack that would mount on our refrigerator’s wood door.I drew the pattern onto... Read more »

Short Queen Beds

QuickTips Filler Image

April 1, 2013

With otherwise excellent RV equipment, there are still frequent complaints by tall people about short queen beds (60 by 75 inches). As a 6-foot 1-inch person who likes to sleep flat on his back, I found the 75-inch bed caused foot cramps and toe pressure problems. My wife and I teamed up for an easy... Read more »

Wall Hook Keyholder Help

Wall hook keyholder

March 29, 2013

I screwed various hooks into my motorhome’s walls in order to hold things such as keys, a small flashlight, a calendar, sunglasses, fuel discount cards, etc., but the hooks would work themselves loose in no time. I found that the thin plywood wall panels do not have enough material to hold the threads... Read more »

Stove Cover Adds Counter Space

Stove Cover Adds Space

March 27, 2013

I used some leftover laminate flooring to make a stove cover in my motorhome. It makes for excellent storage space when the stovetop is not being used. It also works well because the foam underneath serves as a noise buffer for rattling stove grids. The flooring is very durable, so I’m not concerned... Read more »
