High-Viz End Cap

10MT-driveway-reflector

May 30, 2014

  I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve heard about RVs losing bumper end caps. I’ve come up with a solution that also makes it easier to see the rear bumper. I took two red driveway reflectors, cut them short and installed them close to the bumper so they spear through the end cap. They... Read more »

Easy-Access Storage

10MT-drawer

May 30, 2014

  Here is a tip for combating compartment storage problems. Using garage-door tracks and hardware, you can make a guide and use rollers attached to the sides of the compartment.

Keep Corner Cabinet Closed

10MT-medicine-cabinet-fix

May 2, 2014

  In our trailer, there’s a medicine cabinet with a mirror mounted above a sink and vanity in the bedroom. When towing the trailer, the cabinet door would always pop open, spilling the contents, so I came up with a pretty good solution. Since the cabinet is mounted in the corner, not on a side... Read more »

Catch Water Leaks

10MT-Water-Alarm-B

May 2, 2014

  I have a Watchdog water alarm that lets me know if there’s a water leak. I hang mine on the wall and extend the sensor where I feel it will do the most good under the sink. I bought mine at Lowe’s, model BWD-HWA, for less than $12. If there is a leak, you will hear a loud squeal. William Schmall... Read more »

Wobble Stopper

10MT-Ratchet-stabilizer

May 2, 2014

  After reading James Baucom’s RV Clinic letter in the December 2013 issue regarding his wobbly trailer, I wanted to pass along my solution. I’ve told other RVers about my fix and have found that it removes 90 percent of the wobble, both front-to-back and sideways, and for a mere fraction of... Read more »

Hands Down, Best Paint Protector

10MT-ladder-gloves

May 2, 2014

  I came up with a great way to protect my RV’s finish from ladder damage. I was replacing the awning on my camper and leaned a ladder against the RV. I didn’t want to damage the finish, so I got out a pair of work gloves and put them on the tips of the ladder. It’s an easy fix and saves the... Read more »

Fastidious About Funnels

10MT-funnel

March 28, 2014

  I got tired of having an assortment of funnels lying around everywhere and getting dirty. I took a 5-gallon plastic pail and cut various size holes in the lid for funnels to drain into the pail. I then cover the funnels with a plastic trash bag and the funnels stay clean and dry for the next use. John... Read more »
