When we’re traveling and I’m in the passenger seat, I use pens and a cell phone, and I like to have my small, flat digital camera nearby. But I did not have a handy place to keep these items in the motorhome and could never find a ready-made container that I could attach somewhere near the seat. So I went to a fabric store and purchased some vinyl that is similar to our interior decor. I folded the material over and sewed compartments into it to hold the items I like to have close by. I then put snaps (also purchased at the fabric store) on each end and attached the snap mates onto the door panel where I can reach all the items when I need them. This was an inexpensive way to make a pouch to hold all of the things I like to have when traveling.

My wife and I are real outdoor buffs and enjoy plenty of fresh air and sunlight. When we’re camping, we like to leave the coach door open for the light and for the refreshing breeze that comes through the screen door. Unfortunately, because of cold weather conditions, we often were forced to close the outside door. Other times when it was hot and muggy outside, we would have to close it so we wouldn’t lose the coolness provided by the air conditioner. We found the solution to our problem at a home improvement store: sheets of clear acrylic plastic, such as Plexiglas. I measured the upper and lower panels of our screen door and purchased two acrylic panels cut to size. I also bought regular screen door clips and screwed them into the screen door. Now we can slip the panels over the screens, leave the outside door open to let in the light, and never worry about losing heat or coolness. If the weather permits, I take out a panel and store it below, allowing us to enjoy the breeze.

Here’s a simple safety tip. I purchased a small scissors jack at a salvage yard (it was from a car) that I position under the bottom step on my motorhome’s three-step entrance. It supports the steps extremely well.
