Tom said:My neighbor here at the ranch came up with a neat idea when a skylight recently smashed in a hail storm. The resident RV repair guy was away for a couple of weeks, and he (the neighbor) was unable to get on the roof. He pushed a small umbrella up through the opening, deployed it, and secured the handle. Voila! A dry coach interior until the repair guy returned.

I just put the sensor over the door so the end is inside and leave the readout hanging on the outside of the door. Keeps me from looking inside to check to see if it's cold or even too cold!
BernieD said:Windshield Wiper Covers
Driving around the southwest, you don't have much rain so little need to use the windshield wipers. So I've gotten kind of lazy and hadn't taken off my covers while driving. Well, in that high wind leaving FMCA-ABQ, both covers blew off, first time in thousands of miles. So I went to Lowe's and bought new exact replacements---for $1.18. I use the pre-scored foam pipe insulation, 6' long, 1" OD. I cut it in half and I have windshield wiper covers for each wiper blade for less than 60? each. Keeps the blade off the windshield and protects the rubber from the sun.
Good idea! All I need now is hurricane fence to stick them in ;Dsteve-n-sueC said:For those of us "mature" enough to remember curb feelers, here is an updated model.
I used swimming noodles, marked the distance I need to comfortably open my slides, and inserted them into the fence. Now I watch the noodles in the mirrors, line the rig up so they just touch and perfect parking! And if I get too close and bump the noodles, no worries!
Great idea but caution. If leveling jack is tight or you over torque it the drill Chuck can actually screw off the drill...ask me how I know this .Lisa & Ed said:We have manual 'scissor' type stabilizer jacks (4) on our travel trailer and rather than cranking each jack down by hand, I bought a Camco Leveling Scissor Jack Drill Socket to use with my husbands cordless drill.
It only takes us a few seconds to go around and lower/raise up each of the jacks.
