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 »

Freshwater Sun Protection

QuickTips Filler Image

February 21, 2013

We traveled to Texas in August for our shakedown cruise in our new coach. The first thing we found was the freshwater line got extremely warm while attached between the coach and the water supply. We tried to provide shade for it by tucking it under various objects, none of which worked well. While shopping... Read more »

Hanging Lights With Quick Clips

We usually dry camp, so we bought some battery-operated Coleman string lights. To hang them, we use ID badge clips that we purchased in the stationery section at Walmart. The clips are very inexpensive, and now we can hang our lights just about anywhere. Ted and Michelle Pretty l Nova Scotia, Canada We... Read more »

Simple Shelf Improvement

Motorhome nightstand shelf

February 7, 2013

My motorhome doesn’t have a nightstand on the right-hand side of the bed. I needed something to hold my coffee cup, watch, etc. I made a shelf that fits on the sides of the top drawer. It has grooves on the underside and can be removed or slid back out of the way when not in use. PETE WIEJEK l CHEYENNE,... Read more »

Better Battery Access

February 1, 2013

Our house battery is in a vented battery box located in a storage area under the couch. Accessing the battery requires removing a dozen screws, some of which are difficult to reach. In order to connect an automatic charger or a digital multimeter directly to the battery terminals, I made jumper wires... Read more »

Compact Storage Solution

January 22, 2013

I carry 40 feet of sewer hose, which is cut into four 8- to 12-foot-long pieces, with each section fitted with connectors. This allows me to hook up easily in almost any RV park, no matter where the drain is located. My problem was how to store 40 feet of uncompacted hose in a storage bay. Since the... Read more »

Storage That Can Hang

January 15, 2013

We found our camper van did not have a place to put our stuff when we settled in for the night. Using some fabric that was very similar to the upholstery in the motorhome, I made a couple of these hanging storage bags. There is space to hold toiletries, a book, a water bottle and a pair of eyeglasses.... Read more »
