Stop the Draft From Coming in Through the Exhaust Vent



The wind is really whipping out here. I tend to leave my exterior vent flap open so that when I use the stove I do not have to go out to open it or close it after dark, or in the rain, or when it's cold, or when it's hot, You get the idea. There is a lot of cold draft coming in through the exhaust vent today. I have noticed that in the summer, hot air comes through it too.  Actually, in Texas the wind is so strong that it comes through the vent even when it's closed sometimes.

Being the 'crafty' sort, I pulled out my sewing machine and fabric and started to make a cover for the vent. Suddenly it struck me - there's a MUCH simpler way! It works better too!

Tips for Installing a Slim Shade in Your RV - I Can See Clearly Now!


I just discovered this great replacement window for an RV or Trailer!  I've always hated the opaque window in the door. I saw this window and had to get it!

If you have a window with no visible screws on the interior trim, I have a way to remove it easily with no damage. 

There are also some hints I've discovered to make the installation a LOT easier, including how to remove an RV or Trailer window that has no screws. I thought I'd share them here. Hope they're helpful!

DIY Window Bird Feeder for Our Fine Feathered Friends!



This is going to make you smack your forehead.

I was sitting in my new travel trailer that has a lot of windows, watching the birds and wishing I had a window bird feeder. So, I designed and built a nice wooden one, based on one I had seen years ago. It's nice, but it takes time, materials and woodworking skills to make it.  It also takes up a lot of room in my tiny house. 


One day as I was walking through Dollar Tree, I saw something . . .

Don't Let the Screen Door Hit You ...

We recently moved from our wonderful little Fun Finder 189FBR to a beautiful new Grand Design Imagine XLS 19RLE. It's about 4 feet longer than the Fun Finder, but it's amazing how much they've managed to fit into the space! And best of all, it has REAR WINDOWS! Beautiful rear windows!


 I don't want to say we 'upgraded' to the Grand Design because our Fun Finder was an amazing camper and we had wonderful times! But we are now full-time in under 20' and I wanted a couple things - windows in the rear! The ability for my husband to stand up everywhere in the camper, and a bigger bathroom. This camper has all this and more.  But enough about my new camping trailer! This post is to share a mod I did to my screen door to make it more user friendly.

Ok, yeah, I know I should do a better job with photos, but hey, I just wanted to share this with you before it starts raining :)
