Mobile Wine Cellar
Last year we hit the wine trail as part of our trip to Niagara Falls. We found many wonderful vineyards with excellent wines, but the sad part was that we could not take some with us to enjoy later. Carrying glass bottles in our motorhome had always been a challenge, but that is no longer the case. I purchased some very simple corner molding that was close to the color of our cabinets, so it blends in. I cut pieces to fit the width of the front and the back of the inside of the cabinet so they are secure — no nails or screws, just a snug fits on the carpet liner — and attached 1/2-inch pieces of wood as spacers so we can safely store up to four bottles of wine. With our mobile wine cellar, we never have to worry about bottles bouncing around, even on the roughest of highways.

After ending up with a few chips in our towed vehicle’s windshield, we found a solution for this problem. We purchased two inexpensive yoga mats and put them across the windshield when we travel. We lay them under the wiper blades and pinch them secure in the car doors. They work great and store easily. No more chips in our windshield.

Finding The Best Fuel Prices
I bought a smartphone several months ago, and now I can’t imagine how I ever got along without it. The Gas Buddy app that I downloaded has saved a lot of money to help offset the cost of the service. For those who don’t know about Gas Buddy, it makes it possible to find the cheapest fuel prices while on the road, which can save you a lot of money when you have to fill a 100-gallon tank. The smartphone works wherever there is cell phone service and also allows you to do Internet searches for RV parks; use the Restaurant Finder app to pick out eating places and get their phone number so you can ask whether they have room for a 60-foot-long combination of vehicles; and much more. Having fast 4G service everywhere you go is also nice, so you no longer have to hunt for a Starbucks or McDonalds or wait on slow RV park Wi-Fi service. I think these gadgets were invented for RVers; they sure have simplified our lives.
