Sofa is getting soft

We all know RV furniture is usually cheaply made. This travel trailer is less than 1 year old and we've noticed the sofa doesn't seem as firm now and the upholstery is stretching slightly so we can see where we sat. I expect others have had this experience so please share anything you did. Thank you

RE: Added a shelf to the overhead sink cabinet

Nice. No such thing as too many shelves added to an RV !

RE: Lutefisk

DH's husband's family eats it. All I can say is: I gave some to the cat and he covered it up, so that's good enough for me to leave it alone. (Can't stand the stuff)

Protect liquid detergent pods from freezing ?

As we prepare to leave the cold Midwest, do I need to protect Tide pods from freezing during travel ? Package doesn't say, at least that I can see. I Googled it and all I found was questions/answers about Pods and pressure of aircraft. Any experience with it in your cold RV ?

RE: Dumplings

Bisquick. Salt, pepper and water to desired consistency . Light and fluffy. hokeypokey, Plus the comment about butter. Your recipe doesn't have enough fat. Bisquick has the shortening in it to make a great dumpling. Try this or adding the butter. Ahhh ! Thanks for the tip. I'll note this on my recipe card and make them tomorrow !

This is how I make dumplings, but I don't think they are tender enough. What can I do different ? 2 cups flour 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. baking powder Mix 1 whisked egg Enough milk to make a stiff dough

RE: Christmas is over (December 12)

Goes to show what retail thinks of Christmas, doesn't it? Our tree never went up 'til mid December and it stayed up for the 12 days after. Christmas BEGINS at Christmas and NOT before Halloween. OK, I'll get off my soapbox now.

RE: Have you replaced the medicine cabinet ?

My medicine cabinet was too high. None of us could use the mirror. Simply unscrewing it, and turning it upside down lowered the mirror. Used the same screw holes to mount it back. You are brilliant !! I like that idea.

Have you replaced the medicine cabinet ?

Medicine cabinet would be nicer if it was longer and a bit wider in our travel trailer. DH is a handy guy but I thought I'd check here first before I ask him about replacing it. Your suggestions ?

RE: American flag

I worked in the office of a public school years ago. Every day the older elementary students had the job of putting up/taking down the flag on the grounds. The phone was ringing and the secretary was busy so I answered it for her. The retired Navy man on the other end identified himself and asked if everything was alright at school. I didn't follow his thought, but then he told me we were flying our flag upside down. He said it's a sign of distress.

RE: How many sides are too many?

Going to DD/SIL's and she cooks big, so I'll take empty containers along then we can send left overs home with the 2 boys. They won't turn it down, let me assure you. I will make 1 pumpkin pie (she makes apple crisp) 2 salads and fresh buns. They handle the turkey, potatoes, dressing, sweet potatoes and who knows what else. Better wear elastic waist pants !

RE: Are you getting enough Vitamin D ?

FIL read about natural medicine all the time. Some of his theories I believe, some I don't. He did say, it's important to get sun exposure on the top of your hands so don't use sunscreen there. Just sayin'

Using rv during travel out of cold climate

We were first-timer Snowbirds in 2014. We traveled 4 days down/back with a winterized travel trailer and spent $360 on motels. This year we're going to save those bucks for "fun" things and utilize the trailer during the trip. Any tips/advice traveling this way would be appreciated.

RE: Texas Toast in Toaster

In our area, Texas Toast is just thicker sliced bread. I'd put it in my toaster without another thought.

Stainless steel cookware - recommendations ?

Going to buy stainless steel saucepans for the house. Won't need a full set - just saucepans. What brands are you happy with ?

RE: Beef Roast in Crock Pot

Good idea you have to brown the roast outside. And you put the meat right on the grate? No pan should be needed?

RE: Favorite microwave recipes?

The microwave makes great old fashioned oatmeal.
