Satellite Dish Leveler
A sometimes difficult job can be made easier if your satellite dish is level before you make the necessary adjustments to acquire a signal. An inexpensive tool (less than $5) that is designed to be used to ensure that square posts are level in construction before they are set can be attached to your antenna mast using a rubber band. You can then level your antenna on two axes by using any available material under the legs of your tripod (if that’s what your mast is mounted on) and centering the bubbles between the lines. If you have your antenna mounted on something other than a tripod, use whatever method is necessary to level it. Once the antenna dish is level, any adjustments you make to it will be the actual ones desired and not skewed due to the unlevel condition.
You will never believe what can be done with a TV remote control. One evening, while resting in our RV, I decided to do some light mending. This was a garment that needed to be pulled. I looked around and noticed a bird in hand — the remote control. I placed it under the material to be sewn, stretched the material across, and the remote worked marvelously. The material was taut and felt good in the hand. I plan to do more mending now that I have this new sewing appliance. You can sew with the TV on or off to accomplish this feat.

We have a side-by-side mirrored closet that affords us a very large shelf area. In order to use the shelf space efficiently without items toppling out, we purchased elastic netting, which can be found at any automotive parts store. Just screw the plate with hooks into the side of the closet, and when traveling, loop the end of the netting onto the hooks. It’s a quick and easy solution.

Flashlight, Notepad Holders
To solve the problem of forever looking for a flashlight and trying to find a notepad and pencil, I devised these two holders. The pad and pencil holder is ideal for keeping membership and credit cards readily available when refueling or when registering at a campsite. Both holders are conveniently mounted near the entrance of the coach.
