Freezer Contents

This may be obvious to some of you, but that's why I started the thread - for the rest of us.

We have a basement freezer to store food, and we sometimes forget what all we have in there. We put a wipe erase board on our frig with the contents of the freezer. That way we know what is there when we look in the frig for something. We also use it to track our shopping list of things we need.

I added a 12v "cig lighter" socket to an outside compartment. Great for running 12v Sirius radio and other small devices like a AA battery charger. We are rarely plugged in or on genny so the 120v outside outlet is fairly useless to us.

Spice Rack

We found some magnetic spice racks at Bi-Mart. There is a metal strip with 5 locations on it that we mounted to the wall. Each circular spice holder has a magnet on it that keeps it in place. It is very handy over the stove and looks great. Surprisingly, the magnets are strong enough to hold while traveling over bumpy roads, too!

We hated the lighting in our coach. Either we'd be in a dark cave or have to have the harsh overhead florescents on. I installed accent rope lights around the slide seals on all four slides and above and below the cabinet above the bathroom sink... as well as about 40' on and under the outside of the coach. All stations are controlled by a programable Home Settings controller. All stations can be dimmed individually as well.

It now provides a nice amount of accent light inside the rig and we don't need the overhead lights very often at all.

A second little addition we really like is the steering wheel topper table which turns the cockpit into more of an "entry area" with a table cloth and lamp.

Put a normal outside faucet head on the outside shower.

Our coach came with the outside shower having the normal hot/cold knobs, but a small finger activated shower head on the faucet like you have in the kitchen to spray off dishes. With the OEM faucet you can't even wash your hands, because one has to squeeze the faucet to activate it. I cut off the OEM faucet and put on a standard male hose end. Now I can turn on the pump and wash the coach.

MCD Shades

Although it wasn't a little change, we replaced our day-night shades with MCD shades and we love them!!

We bought a cheap "hair filter" for our shower drain. It keeps hair from clogging the drain and keeps it out of the grey water tank. We just clean it after each shower.

Simple and nice.
Ooh that thing is magic. Such a small, simple thing but it makes a world of difference especially since both of us have long hair.
