Tips and tricks

One day my wife noticed that coffee filters fit perfectly in a cool whip container. I no longer have to try to reform my filters when they get squished after shifting!

When I boondock next to water, I bring a Life Straw. Normally next to rivers that are pretty clean, I can drink all I want out of the river. All kinds of water filtration systems for all kinds of uses. Life Straws weight a few ounces, costs about $20, I get up to 1000 gallons of water to drink.

What are your tips and/or tricks?

Noodles!

I've found that split pool noodles are a great wrap for keeping wine bottles from banging around!

Pieces of non slip rug pads are great for:
Lining pots and pans to stop rattles
Grippers to unscrew bottles and cans
Impromptu bottle sleeves to prevent rattles or breakage (I use tape for quick, or a couple dabs of hot glue if there's time)
and to stop rugs from slipping

Rust-oleum makes a yellow tint peel coat developed to tint fog lights from clear to yellow. I've used it to tint porch light lenses, significantly reducing the number of insects gathering at my door. Best of all, it peels off if you change your mind.

Like most RV mattresses, the one that came in my TT was too thin, so I put a mattress topper on it. But it's a heated mattress! So I put the topper underneath the mattress. Better mattress, still has heat available.

We use old sock tops to put our coffee mugs in to keep them from rattling in the cabinet. Mug Mitts.

I replaced the too bright, power hungry incandescent porch light bulb with an Amber LED bulb. Went from around 18W to 1.5W. We love it! Much easier on the eyes, can run for days without battery worries and 10% of the bugs. Highly recommended!

Nice . I couldn't find amber leds for the type of bulb in my porch lights, but that would have been easier.
