Two easy RV organizational tips

 Two easy RV organizational tips

The extension rod

We received a great tip from a reader named Anne who emailed us two tips that help tidy up the interior of an RV.

What Anne did was to purchase one of those tension bars that people use for closet organizers or even sometimes bathroom shower curtains. Ann set hers up across the back of the bathroom in the RV.The first tip has to do with wet towels and where to hang them.

She says she set it about an inch from the wall and that it is perfect for hanging those wet towels. They dry perfectly, she says…and out of the way.

A second tip involves something available in various places like Bed, Bath and Beyond, Walmart and even some of those dollar stores. What she did was buy sock dividers. They’re normally used to keep socks neat in a drawer. But Ann uses them in her RV kitchen cabinet to keep drinking and wine glasses from falling over. Now, she says, everything arrives intact.

Thanks Anne for sharing those great tips

  • We used a tension shower curtain rod in our motorhome to hang clothing that we didn’t want to dry in the laundromat dryer. The rod was moved a foot forward from the back wall, and the items were hung on hangers, just as in a closet. Worked great even when we were on the road. And it helped prevent dryer damage and wrinkles.

  • I use vinyl rain gutter to hold up my sewer hose so it doesn’t sag in and out of the snake holder. Then I stored on the bumper. By from DIY store for about four dollars a 10 foot links and then cut to fit on the bumper works great
