Don't waste your time or money on a pocket hose. I bought one from Walmart yesterday that is supposed to be a 3/4" hose. The problem is that in order to make the hose retract, they only have a 1/4" hole in each fitting for water flow. Hardly enough for our showers, etc. Not even enough for our household needs. These are truly junk! Stick with traditional hose if you want flow. For $40, I can buy a real nice high flow hose. Taking it back today for a refund.

Bathroom storage problem solved!

My Minnie Winnie 22R has a small, three-tiered linen cabinet that sits in a corner and is triangular. This poses no problem for towels and other things, but as far as toiletries and grooming products, it is hard to keep things in place when the vehicle is in motion. Thus far, the only way to hold things in place is to set bigger items on top of smaller items.

Today, I decided to give the local Bed, Bath & Beyond store a visit. If anyone had something triangular that would work to keep things in place, they would.

So, I headed over to Woodland Hills, where the store is located, and took a look around. At first, I could not find any container that is triangular in shape (roughly 12 x 12 x 15") that would work. So I was going to get a rectangular plastic organizer that would fit inside.

After getting it off the shelf, I decided to take another look and went to an aisle that I had apparently missed. Lo and behold, there was a triangular metal rack with two suction knobs that is made for showers. That would work if it fit inside. But, I needed to measure it. I went over to customer service and asked if they had a measuring tape handy. They did and I found that the rack would fit inside the cabinet.

I gave them the plastic organizer and then went to the check stand with the rack.

When I got home, I was going to take the suction knobs off, but decided to leave them on to use for bracing the rack inside the cabinet. It fit in nicely.

I then placed it in the cabinet (I also did a little re-arranging) in the center tier. Problem solved!

Wink Dimmers. . .

Installed 3 dimmers in my Fuzion 420 rig today. The normal LED lights are too bright most of the time. Like to be able to tone them down so they aren't overpowering. Blue lite ones in living area & master bath and a normal dark one in master bedrm. Surprised these are a part of new setups these days.

Tell me more about what dimmers you used. Did they work with the existing wiring? Thanks.

Cool Sure. . .

Yes they just wire up to the standard switch wiring in the rig. They make both the lit ones, like for bath rooms as a night light as well as nonlit. Got them on eBay. The issue is the hole in the wall from the original switch and if it can be covered up by the newer one. One of mine worked fine but the other hole was bigger than needed so I need to fabricate a cover as the new switch doesn't cover the entire hole. Do a RV LED dimmer switch search on eBay and you'll see all the options. Can't paste and copy them in my phone right now.

Since installing the second air conditioner, we no longer had a vent that could be left open in rainy weather so just bought a MAXXAIR ll cover. It sure isn't as pretty as the Aeroflo that was originally over the vent where the a/c was placed but we needed one now that would work with a power vent/fan. Interesting that none but the Fantastic Fan cover will allow 100% opening - and I didn't see that one until I punched the 'buy' button. Oh well

Don't know if these hoses are safe to drink from, but great for showers. Thanks for giving me the idea!

We don't use the sleeky for drinking. I attach a "Y" valve to the water spicket and attach the white hose to our the MH and attach the sleeky to the other. I use the sleeky for cleaning the MH, car, boat trailer, boat etc. I never checked to see if the ends were less than 1/4" but I get more pressure than I need? I got it a Home Depot.

A new granite composite sink for the kitchen. DW hated the plastic/fiberglass one and complained how she missed the granite one she had in the S&B's. I just hope it handles the bounce and vibration of travel otherwise back to plastic.

O ring for water filter. Changed filter and discovered o ring missing from coach make ready. They just screwed it on tighter to stop leaks.
