But instead of a bulleted list on a sheet of paper, now you can do it the high-tech way with Microsoft Streets & Trips 2013 travel and map software.... Read more »

Neat and Dry

January 27, 2014

  I wanted a towel rack in my utility bay to keep towels neat and to have a place for them to dry. I was unable to find a rack at my local hardware store that did not interfere with the other components in the utility bay. I then came up with a solution using two small coat hooks and a bungee cord.... Read more »

January 27, 2014

  Rather than have soap bouncing around in the sink or taking up space on a shelf in my motorhome, I installed a countertop soap dispenser next to the kitchen sink. It is a simple matter of drilling a hole through the counter in accordance with the instructions on the package, but first make sure... Read more »

At my house, the spigot I use to fill my fresh-water tank is about 40 feet from the RV. It used to be that, when I turned on the spigot, the water pressure blew the filler nozzle out of the horizontal inlet. I grew tired of walking back and forth and replacing it several times before the tank was full.... Read more »

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.
