    How to Wash an Engine Bay

    This may sound strange but the best degreaser i have ever found is cheap, really cheap shaving cream, used with an old paint brush. I have a 1986 Ford F250 diesel that the previous owner never cleaned under the hood. Took about a 1/2 hour but now there's no grease. Just scrub then rinse. I also used it on my interior rugs and seats (cloth), they were black with grease. Now they are back to baby blue. Works on your heavy traffic areas on your inside rugs. Rub it in, use a brush if needed, let dry and vacuum (interior)

    Easy to Make Precision Tape Measure

    I take old broken tape measures and nail them to the front of my workbench, so i never have to find my tape measure, just use the table's tape measure. I have one glued to the back plate of my mider saw. I also found the stick on tape measures work great.

    Solar Water Heater

    I also live full time in my 27' Shasta. I replaced my RV hot water heater with a residental 20 gallon, 110 ac. I tried building a solar water heater last year with 2 100' black heavy duty water hoses. I included 4 ball valves to the in/out puts of the hot water tank. I put brass adaptors (for garden hose treads) on 2 of the ball valves, these go to the hoses, then i attached the others to the cold water input and hot water out put. I took the hoses behind my trailer, coiled them up as tight as i could then just layed them on the ground. Worked great, i used them for a year summer (got really hot) and winter (warm enough to shower). Never had any leaks or problems, only the first few weeks I could smell rubber then the smell went away. Since I volunteer as a host I move the trailer ever...

Since I volunteer as a host I move the trailer every 6 months i need to redo it again but the hoses make it easy to break down and put back together quickly. I will try your sliding door idea this time. Sounds like i could use the sliding doors for the solar panels i am building right now. Thank for your ideas, I will use the WSV and termo this time as well. Great job.
