Tips & Ideas from RV Space Savers

Good morning from Sunny Desert Hot Springs.  We are under a high wind warning this afternoon through tomorrow evening with rain expected shortly.  Our window looks out on Big Bear Mountain which is white but this morning we can see the storm coming over the mountains.  Winds could have gusts of 70 MPH and we’re hoping they don’t hit.  One of the benefits/disadvantages of living in an RV!  Last night we enjoyed a gorgeous desert sunset which we can see so much better being out at Desert Pools RV Park.

Desert Sunset.

We really enjoy it here and is an RPI Park for us.  It has a nice pool and 3 hot pools of different temperatures from the hot springs in the area.

TIP:  Speaking of pools.  I posted this tip several years ago but it is worth a repeat.

Chlorine is not good for your swim wear.  Also read this article on great tips on how to remove the harsh chemicals used in pools.  http://www.wikihow.com/Protect-Your-Bathing-Suit-from-Pool-Chemicals. 

TIP from a Reader: 

Many of us have the thin nylon cutting mats. 

Cutting boards

They are easy to store and light weight.  Just attended a cooking class where these were used, but they put an 8 X 8 or so piece of that rubber drawer/shelf liner that we use in our RVs under these sheets to prevent slipping and sliding. How clever!  

Rubber shelf liner

Another use for the same piece of the rubber “fabric” is under mixing bowls, either glass or metal.  Thanks Danise…great tips. Here are some other great uses for the rubber shelf liner.  http://www.thriftyfun.com/tf585365.tip.html 

We had several replies to our question on how you heat your RV.  Most use a small electric heater when possible and some have fireplaces that take the chill off.  Everyone tries to use as little propane as possible.  We have found a huge price variation of propane as we travel and do everything we can to conserve.  We have a NuWave cooktop and are thinking seriously of getting a NuWave Oven.  We have heard they work well.  Our only hesitation is where to store it when not in use!  Do any of you have one and where do you store them?

Great Places To Visit: Steamboat Arabia in Kansas City, Missouri.  We visited this amazing museum several years ago on a trip through the Midwest.

Steamboat Arabia

It is a MUST SEE if you are in the area.  Here is a great story in Roadtreking America about the story of the steamboat and its discovery. Thanks for the great article Mike.   http://roadtreking.com/steamship-arabia/.  Also another link with information http://1856.com/.   At the time we visited there were still over a million artifacts in storage to clean and put in the museum.
