Coffee Cup Organizers
We have a small collection of coffee cups we bought at some of our favorite destinations. We use 14 different cups; one for each of us every day of the week. When traveling, we slip them into women’s socks to protect them. On each sock we used a permanent marker to identify the day of the week to use each cup. As we enjoy our morning coffee, these cups remind us of our 14 favorite stops.

Entry Step Platform
We own a Type C Fleetwood Jamboree motorhome. When the grandkids are with us, we worry about them falling into the entry step well while the motorhome is parked. So, I made a platform to place inside the well. I made mine out of 1/2-inch plywood, but you can use any size of sturdy board. I cut the wood to the width of the well but left the length a little shorter to allow the door to close. The center leg is stationary, but the two outer legs are hinged for easier placement. Two boards are placed between the hinged legs and the center leg to keep the outer supports from collapsing. This platform makes it nice for my wife, as she does not have to worry about the kids falling into the step well if they happen to get up during the night.

Displaying Celsius On Thermostat
Some Dometic Duo-Therm Comfort Control Center thermostats have the option to display the temperature in either Fahrenheit (as it comes from the manufacturer) or in Celsius by breaking a small tab on the circuit board. To change the display to Celsius, unclip the thermostat cover from its mounting bracket (top or bottom center) and look near the bottom of the circuit board for a slotted path marked “BREAK FOR °C.” After one breaks the partition, the thermostat will permanently display the temperature in Celsius.
This option is available on the four-button thermostat (#310 6463 007) and five-button thermostats (#310 9228 001 “”white; #310 9228 019 “” black).
