As I look around the Roadrunner I wonder if other people are approaching things with the same solutions. In case you wondered that too, Here goes with Five More:
I read somewhere that one didn't want to have a lot of things going down the kitchen sink drain. At the time I didn't realize how much food particles smell. Not to mention they clog up drains. We learned our lesson early and have been buying 'sink baskets' at the Dollar Store and flea markets.
For years I have missed out on really knowing where we are going. I could do more pre-travel route study, but I often don't. Once I made a holder for my iPad I can plug in the route and see details or the entire route as we travel each day.
Solar Panel on Roof
Although I don't understand the technology too well, I like the fact we have a solar panel on top of the Roadrunner. At worst, it allows us to keep a good charge (trickle charge) on the batteries when we dry camp.
I haven't figured out how many panels it would take us to depend on solar 100% but I believe what I've read that indicates it would take a LOT of dry camping to save money with solar to pay for those panels. Having said that, I'm glad we have it and can always add more.
Hooks for Jackets and such
The Roadrunner obviously is a small space to live in, so we don't want to hang things all over the place and make it seem even smaller. In cooler and cold or rainy weather, we need more coat hooks than what came installed on the Roadrunner.
I believe only one coat hook came with the coach. When we were at Red Bay, we found another one and hung it near the bathroom door. They are sturdy enough to hang a sweater shirt and jacket or two each.
Two coats can hang here and drip dry and be out of the way unless we need to go out again.
In the back outside the shower, we have three of these over the door hooks. Good for a couple of towels.
In the bedroom, there are a couple of more places I've put hooks. Good for a belt,
It's important to efficiently heat the Roadrunner and these two items are indispensable. The electric heaters take the stress off the heat pump and gas heater we have onboard. Cold floors are a real wake up in the morning in the winter, so we use these to augment our main heater.
So there are five ideas that work for us. And more ideas to come...
