So we are heading out tomorrow for our first week camping in our new travel trailer, and would like to hear what others do with some of these minor items.
In the bathroom, the toilet paper holder is not mounted, the dealer said they leave this to the choice of the buyer, as everyone likes them in a different spot, while some do not like to mount them at all. There is also nothing in place for toothbrushes or soap. So we have a little disposable pump for hand soap, but what do others do here for their toilet paper, toothbrushes, shower soaps?
Same goes in the kitchen, since counter space is at a premium, do others mount a paper towel holder somewhere? Last thing I want to do, is put holes in the walls or stuff. I assume products from places like 3M will work wonders for attaching stuff like this and will not have any issues? Are these things actually strong enough to hold up those soap dispensers in the shower, that have the three different sections?
Speaking of showers, do people usually use their showers? I guess we will find out this week, just how many showers in a rows we can get away with lol, needless to say I will go first
With the fridge, do you find things stay in place pretty good, or should we be looking at those bars you can put in, to hold things in place?
For those of you with an outside kitchen, do you find it is ok to travel with it full of drinks? The fridge does not have a locking door, so I am not sure if I will find the door spring open while we are travelling.
In the cupboards, is it a good thing to have those rubber type liners in the bottom, to put the plates, bowls and such on, to keep things from sliding around?
Do people use the water from the fresh water storage tank for cooking, or do you mainly restrict it for washing up, bathroom stuff, etc? I would assume it is not wise to use it for drinking.
Now this may sound silly, but we are newbies here lol. When using the air conditioning or furnace, do people generally leave their roof vents open or do you play this by ear? We have the maxairr II covers on all our vents, so we should stay dry when it rains.
Are there things we should carry with us when travelling, certain tools, spare bulbs & fuses (I do have these), or anything else to cover a problem that might arise?
If anyone has any other tidbits they would like to share, that would be great.
All the best,
p.s. I hope this is the correct forum for this post
