Multiple Water Connections
Here’s a very handy idea that we use almost every day. It’s a Y faucet connector that attaches to the city water source at the campground. It has separate on and off valves — one for the hose that runs to the motorhome connection and the other for a shorter length of hose. At the nozzle end of the shorter hose section we’ve attached a sprayer that can be used for cleaning dirty shoes, washing your dog’s muddy paws, flushing the sewage drain hose before departing, and more. For safety we attached a water pressure regulator to the city water spigot, and we also have a water filter and softener on the hose going to the motorhome.

Those narrow, deep motorhome cabinets often make it impossible to see or get to what is in the back, especially if you’re not very tall. But I found a way anyone can solve this problem by converting the cabinet into a mini pull-out pantry. Begin by buying a set of drawer slides at your local hardware store. Then build a small frame with a shelf approximately halfway up the frame for the inside of the cabinet. I built my framework out of thin 1.5-inch-by-1.5-inch angle aluminum; drilled and pop-riveted the pieces together; and then used thin pieces of paneling for the shelves. I used the same cabinet door but moved the knob to the bottom of the door so that the new pantry will pull straight out and not from the side. You can do this modification in just about any storage area or cabinet. My wife loves the idea.

Hazard Light Reminder
When we reconnect our towed vehicle for travel, we turn on the motorhome’s hazard lights. This enables us to check that the lights on the towed vehicle are working properly before we pull out. We put a small bungee cord on the motorhome’s steering wheel to remind us to turn the hazards off before leaving. Of course, the bungee cord reminds us anytime the hazard lights are turned on.
