Micro Mods

I call these Micro Mods because they cost very little if anything to do. Just simple stuff that makes RVing life a little easier.

This hole in the step makes a great place to hook the dog's leash.



A loose tea ball from the dollar store filled with in-wash scent booster beads makes a great air freshener. Hang it from the A/C vents to help spread the scent around.



No photo of this one, but since we use old plastic grocery bags for trash in our trailer, we've found that stuffing them into an empty tissue box cuts down on the amount of room they take up, and they dispense very easily.

Does anyone else have quick and easy mods they've done that cost almost nothing?

I like the air freshener and trash bag ideas!

I added a USB charger with voltage meter, now I can monitor the battery and charge my phone.

Most of us have little kids or g-kids, right? Well we use an empty 'baby wipe' container for our grocery/trash bags.

Spice Racks

Simple mod, added spice holders to the back of over kitchen cabinet door, hold spice jars that we refill when needed but the DW found additional uses for the holder, go figure.

I’m going to have to say Command Hook items. I use them everywhere, from key holders to scrub brush holders and picture frame mounts. Cheap and awesome

For a few bucks, this over-the- door rack adds a lot of functional storage. Install was such an ordeal — I had to stick felt pads on the metal clips to prevent scratching. Took an entire 3 minutes

That dog hook... I like the location and convenience... but with a 160lb mastiff who has been known to hit the end of her leash trying to reach kid to drool on... I'm not sure I'd want to put my steps at risk like that.

We do have trouble finding good places to tie her up when in cramped quarters. In larger spaces, she's often tied to the picnic table, with enough slack that the collar end can be hung on the door safety handle (the one attacked next to the door), for easy access when she's inside.

Our dog, Sierra, is only 40 lbs, so the step is strong enough to stop her. Our last dog Yukon, an 80 lb husky cross, was known to drag the picnic table across the campsite when someone he knew showed up and he couldn't wait to see them.

We've got two pups over 100lbs, both of which have working and pulling in their breeds.
We just loop a jacketed steel cable through a wheel on our trailer.
Even our small pups would have a hard time dislodging a full 13,000lb
