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.

May 2, 2014

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 »

Wind It Up

10MT-cord-winder

March 28, 2014

  As I get older, the 50-amp electrical cord gets heavier, and with the cold weather, it also gets harder to coil. Using a piece of scrap plywood, three 6-inch bolts, three nuts, three washers, two 1-inch U-bolts and some flexible tubing, I made a permanent attachment to my RV’s ladder. I can... Read more »
