Its praises are sung here often enough, and the Sewer Solution lives up to its reputation.. great for dumping at home to a too-high sewer clean-out.

Backing camera system... lets you get those last few inches when parking. It's 'free', since the first backing accident you did't have pays for it & more .

RV.net.. for all the good stuff I've learned here...

I finally broke down and bought a set of two-way radios, it sure does help the communication between me and the DW when hooking up or getting into a tight spot.

I'll start:
Someone in the Camping Van posted a reference to using a Super-Chamois to wipe down their shower. I have been using an icky old thick sponge and I like the chamois idea so much more.
Now I want to hear what works for you


I wipe down the shower,wash bowl,commode, etc, twice a year, with a Product called "Quick Wax". It's a solvent base liquid wax. No more water spots and the plastic shines like new.

In order to reduce injury if one should run into a open slide or even the 5th wheel hitch in front we cut a "Noodle" not sure what else its called but it is actually a water float thing with a hole in the center. Simply slip it over all sharp edges. Most come in really bright colors and are hard to miss. (kinda like pipe insulation)

Just heard on TV today: Pour a solution of vinegar and water on your windshield, no more frost in the mornings.

Sounds gross, but if you use car wax on the inside of the toilet bowl it keeps it nice and clean and don't have to use a brush, well hardly ever.

Levelair Air Bags

The above is the best gizmo I have purchased for my trailer. No more getting the level close. I am dead on all the time. Adjustments are done easily without moving the trailer. I can't say enough how terriffic these bags are. I made a Y adaptor to fill both bags at the same time. I am perfectly level in less than 2 min. With a total height of 4" they have worked everytime. The best part is no more hauling a lumber yard with me on vacation!!!

Do you have a handy hint, a new product or an old product that makes your RVing or Camping much better?

For those of us using a Toilet / Shower Pan Combo,
try laying the proper sized throw rug over the shower portion to cut down on foot traffic dirt.

I think this is a great idea! Just how do we keep it in the front of Genl RVing Issues so it easy to find?
