Oil Fill Aid
|When changing the engine oil in my Type A gas motorhome, it can be a hassle to add oil, because the oil fill port is set back from the front of the coach and is hard to reach. To make the task easier, I use a big funnel and a large-diameter, clear plastic tube, which are available from hardware stores. I attached the tube to the funnel using duct tape. I secure the funnel to a windshield wiper using a ball-end stretch cord.|

|After one of us took a fall on our steps, we applied yellow duct tape to the step edges. The tape serves a dual purpose. It provides greater visibility for the steps, and it increases the life of the step rug. If the only goal is longer rug life, any color of tape can be used.|
