^^^^^^^^^^^^True dat!!

As far as no stupid questions, how about the one someone posted on another forum: "Where do I put my dog bowls?" Or "Where do I hang the toilet paper?" They may not be totally stupid, but they are silly.


Why are they silly? Calling on experienced people who have come up with creative solutions on how to do things is not silly. It's actually smart. Before I drill holes in the wall of an RV to hang a TP holder, I might be surprised to know that someone has come up with a really creative and non invasive way to do it on my particular RV (inside the cabinet door, suctioned to the shower glass, on the side of the bowl, etc etc). Pet bowls are another in the category of "where do I put them" as are litter boxes. Sharing creative solutions is a large part of why forums exist. I wish I had a dime for every time someone taught me a better way to do something. The perspective of calling questions silly is what deters people from coming here and asking.

I don't understand what's silly about either question -- where *do* you put the dog bowls so they aren't in the way yet still in a consistent and convenient place for the dog? Where *do* you hang the toilet paper in your wet bath to keep it from getting wet when the "waterproof" cover has proven to not be waterproof.

Seriously? A person has to ask how to put out his dog's bowls, and how to hang his toilet paper? Obviously you put the dog's bowls in the refrigerator, and the toilet paper in the garage. Duh.

I keep my TP in the fridge as well. Helps keep things nice and cool.

I guess I'm in the wrong forum, I used to think this was a place for experienced RV'ers to share tips and tricks, not to be called stupid because I don't know everything.

Like the tip I learned from Youtube that warned that the "waterproof" TP holder in my RV is not actually waterproof, so don't rely on it. Or the DIY fold down dog dish holder that holds the bowls securely and is easy to fold out of the way.


I guess I'm just not smart enough for this forum.

Years ago I learned the importance of correctly hanging toilet paper in my truck camper. After driving the vibrations would result in a yard or so of toilet paper on the floor of the camper. I learned to flatten the roll before putting it on the spindle.

Dang! We take it off the holder and put it in the cabinet to keep it from unrolling onto the floor. I never thought of flattening the roll, and I was too scared to ask.
