Every time we put our table leaf back in, we had to figure out which side went where. So, we used a black marker to mark the prongs on the table as well as the corresponding prongs on the leaf. Now when we’re ready to put the leaf in, we know immediately which side goes where.

Whenever we get up from using our dinette, we put our hands on the top of the back seating area as support. Over time this area became soiled. So we stopped by a Winnebago surplus store and were able to buy some material that matched our décor. By draping the material over the dinette seat back and using straight pins, we made a pattern for a cover. Sewing the cover was simple, with a few darts, seams, and a hem. A beginner in sewing could tackle this project.

Anyone who owns a Labrador retriever knows that when the temperature hits 70 degrees, the dog will start panting. Our towed vehicle does not have an air-conditioner vent in the rear where the dogs ride, so we would have to turn up the air conditioning and freeze in the front in order for the back to be cool. To resolve this, we went to a camping supply store and purchased a 12-volt-DC clamp-on fan that fit our needs. Our Jeep already had a DC power port located in the rear, so plugging in wasn’t a problem. This little fan really moves air as it oscillates. We can even feel the breeze in the front seat area. Ol’ Black Jack the lab still pants, but noticeably less with the cooling breeze circulating around the hatch area.

I use the divider from the vegetable keeper to create a “soda area” in the refrigerator. I did this by placing the divider vertically, with the base on top of the glass that covers the bins, and then up through the shelves. This creates an area to store 16 cans (or bottles of water) without having them roll or fall over when traveling.
