No-Fuss Hitch Grease

November 30, 2016

  No matter how careful I was, I always made a mess when I greased the hitch ball. I came up with an idea that has worked great, and everyone I’ve shown the fix to has taken the time to duplicate it. My brother uses it for his fifth-wheel as well. I remove about half the grease from the container... Read more »

Magnetic Oven-Door Fix

November 30, 2016

  After many years of use, the oven door on our SunnyBrook 27FKS’s Wedgewood Vision stove no longer closed tightly, allowing heat to escape when we used the oven. I disassembled the door and inspected the springs and hinges, and found nothing broken or out of alignment. To fix this problem, I... Read more »

When the Cat’s Away…

October 28, 2016

  Mice inside your RV are not only messy but destructive as well. One of the most common entry points for mice is where the water hose comes into the basement through a standard 4-inch hole. To block this entry, I bought a cover that is designed to fit the hole. After hacksawing out a section just... Read more »

Stick a Sock Over It

October 28, 2016

  I purchased acrylic beverage cups for use in our RV. While unbreakable, they can get scratch marks where they rub against other cups or the cabinet walls. To protect them when traveling, I slip an inexpensive  knee-high stocking over each one. The nylon stockings stretch over most cup sizes... Read more »

Blasted Pests

September 28, 2016

  Heat and insects can make sitting under our RV’s awning at night uncomfortable. To make it more enjoyable, we use an overhead fan mounted to the RV. We purchased an inexpensive 16-inch, three-speed oscillating floor fan. Using a metal flag-pole bracket, we attached the fan to the range’s... Read more »

Double-Duty Folgers Coffee

September 28, 2016

  I’ve been working on recoating my EPDM rubber roof and needed a lightweight container to carry up the ladder to do the trim work around the vents, A/C and antenna. I also had some painting projects that I needed to tackle. I looked around for a plastic container with hand grips and a place to... Read more »

Stop Drawers in Their Tracks

August 31, 2016

  My travel trailer’s drawers don’t have stops to keep them from being pulled out all the way, and this became an issue when our three-year-old granddaughter stayed with us. My solution was to purchase a five pack of the Hillman Group’s Drawer Pull Out Stops (item number 57061) on Amazon.... Read more »

Compact Leveling Blocks

August 31, 2016

  Most owners know the problems related to stabilizing trailers at campsites. Sometimes you need more blocks to put under those four jacks. I came up with a simple solution that solves two problems — limited storage space and not enough blocks. I made a pair of wooden boxes that are just large... Read more »

Hold the Door

July 26, 2016

I have a Forest River fifth-wheel and spend summers in Wyoming where afternoon rain showers are common. When the rain moves in, I don’t want to step out into the wet to close my RV’s door. I installed a magnetic-catch doorstop, so all I need to do is reach out and pull the door closed, rather than... Read more »

Hooked on Fishing

July 26, 2016

  We have enjoyed camping for 20-plus years. Since we also like to fish, we carry fishing rods in our RV’s outside storage compartment, but they were always in the way. I designed an inexpensive fix by mounting two pairs of 11⁄4-inch PVC connectors to the top of the frame of the storage compartment,... Read more »
