Rubber Glove Holder
While attempting to find a convenient storage space for the rubber gloves that I use while refueling or emptying holding tanks, I noticed that the box the gloves are packaged in is nearly identical in size to a standard tissue box. I purchased a tissue dispenser (with a snap-off bottom) at a local store and attached the base to a vertical surface inside a storage compartment along with two hook-and-loop straps. The box of gloves was carefully cut open and the contents placed in the dispenser top. The box top was then snapped to the base and strapped secure. Some boxes of gloves are exactly the same size as a tissue box and removing the gloves is not necessary; simply place the entire box inside the dispenser. Now the gloves are always handy.

Cord And Hose Storage
Purchase round plastic oil drain pans (available at discount department stores for approximately $7). They come in several colors. Use a saw to cut the flat lid off the pan, leaving the rounded inside lip for strength. The pour spout also can be cut off, or left on and used as an additional handle. The pans can be stacked, since they will nest together. A 25-foot, 50-amp electrical cord fits perfectly into one pan. Use other pans to store water hoses, TV cable, air hoses, etc.

We keep an acrylic plastic organizer near the passenger seat for easy access to reference materials we need when traveling. I never have to release my seat belt and get up to find directions to the next campground.

Whitening Plastic Refrigerator Vents
Having owned seven RVs with refrigerators, we have always had a problem with the finish on the exterior vent or grille becoming dingy. We’ve tried different types of auto polishes, but nothing would bring back the white finish.
Our current diesel motorhome has graphics that run onto some of the surface of the vent grille. I removed the grille cover from the motorhome and used painter’s masking tape to protect the vinyl graphics. I then used liquid rubber roof cleaner and carefully rubbed the plastic surface vigorously. This returned the finish to its original white color. We are very pleased to have found something that brings the plastic surface of the refrigerator vent back to its original shade of white.
