10-Minute Tech: Staying Power

tension rods keep the contents of RV cabinets in palce while in transit

After being on the road all day, it’s nice to get settled in for the night. There’s nothing more annoying than opening a cabinet and having the contents come flying out at you. We came up with the perfect fix: tension rods purchased at Walmart. For our needs, we use ones that extend from 10 to 18 inches. We place several of them vertically in front of paperwork, kitchenware, etc., just inside the cabinet door. This keeps all the loose stuff from spilling out onto the floor.
