Marvelous tool that cell phone! I use the notes too, put all the relevant vehicle info in there including VIN in case stolen.
Also keep the prescription info in there and set notifications for refills.

Print all the registration info along with photo copies of Good Sam card , FMCA card, KOA card, and all other discount or membership card. laminate it and just take it in when you register and they can copy the info.

Cherokee TT 2016 32ft DB It our 4th year starting with our first trip about 5 hours away. we typically do a very close to home for the first of the year. we've figured most things out now we are going to do some additions.
1.
We are doing a bedroom TV mount and have been studying youtube videos.

2.Did any of you reinforce chalking such as tubs, floors or where else?

3.What type of updated splash wall in kitchen and bath is best to use without bubbling or falling off of these thin weird walls

4. Please tell me there is something to do with those closets in the master. I would much rather have a dresser

We installed an Ikea wire drawer system in the bottom of our closet.

Wire shelving in the closets give slots instead of a tall opening.

Yep. I just did this myself in the truck camper. Previous owners hung some cloth thing in there and the screws ripped out last trip. So I went the wire shelf route.

We mostly dry camp, so these have been helpful:

Electric tongue jack
2 6v, batteries
LED interior lights
Solar panel l65 w.
Olympia Wave 3 heater
300w. pure sign inverter
These have really helped with our electric usage (except for the jack).

Why didn't I think of this before - what an eye opener.

In your favorite search engine, search for "Hacks" for RV, camping, or whatever your interest is.

There are literally tons of plain old website pages and youtube videos loaded with all kinds of tips and hints.
