The operating instructions for our Spendide RV washing machine call for using 2 tablespoons or 1 ounce of detergent per load. There doesn’t seem to be an easy way to mark this amount on the liquid detergent cap. Using a measuring spoon is messy, and guessing resulted in having too much or too little detergent per load. A measuring flask or bottle became the solution. Ours has ½-ounce and 1-ounce lines marked on the measuring bulb. No more over- or under-sudsing.

Carpeted Entrance Steps
I took a fancy outdoor mat and cut it to fit the entrance steps in our motorhome. The mats help keep dirt out of the motorhome and look very attractive when the door is opened. These outdoor mats come in a variety of designs and colors.

Easy Sewer Hose Support
Keep your sewer hose off the ground with this simple solution. From a building supply store, purchase a 10-foot section of PVC rain gutter. Cut the gutter in half or to whatever length will fit into your storage compartment. (For easy storage, nest the two halves together.) To use, slide the gutter out to the desired length, leaving approximately 1 foot overlap between the two sections. Place the sewer hose in the gutter and secure it with three or four ball-type bungee cords; use one cord to secure the end of the gutter to the motorhome and one or more cords at the gutter joint. The gutter also can be used to store the hose when not in use. Total cost: approximately $6.

Shelf space is at a premium in the bathroom, so to make more room I mounted a facial tissue box holder on the wall above the counter. By using two 1½-inch-by-1-inch brass hinges, it was an easy project. Be sure there is enough room for the holder to swing up to get the tissue box in and out without hitting cabinets or other things above.
The addition also gives us a bonus shelf on the box for placing glasses, rings, etc., when washing up, and much more space on the counter.
