Shade Pull-Down Tab
|On my screen door, the plastic tab used to pull down the shade cracked and fell off. I bought a package of Command brand cord bundlers and made a new tab by trimming the rubber part of one of the cord bundlers. I couldn’t secure the new tab to the original hole because of how the shade attaches to the door. Still, the new tab works fine.

Basement Storage Rehab
|As I restored and improved my 1992 Fleetwood Flair 22D motorhome, the exterior storage areas needed tender loving care. I removed the felt lining, cleaned the area with a diluted bleach solution, and sprayed on Kilz Complete oil-based paint. I allowed it to cure (48 to 72 hours) and then I painted a coat of Kilz Complete to ensure that the entire storage area was sealed. If you do this, a rubber floor material or an adhesive rubber mat can be added to the compartment once the paint cures.

Editor’s note:The Kilz website notes that primers and paint require 14 days to cure fully.
