    Mine would be the king size mattress topper that we bought at IKEA .we used it for a short time in the house then stored away until one day after a bad week of restless nights on cheap foam filled bedding, constantly falling into the gap between 2 separate single foam cushions. i started searching on Ebay for a foam memory mattress then thought ! we have a mattress topper in the loft already. i dragged it out at once .It fitted perfectly in our overhead bed and has made the biggest difference , no more sleepless nights just bliss
    This topper is not the foam memory type but similar to a regular mattress but only 2" thick This to me is the best improvement to our van:BigGrin:

    We now use two XL Sleeping bags zipped together instead of sheets/duvet. Bed is much easier to make up now after a few glasses of wine.:Smile:

    Prevention better than cure

    When emptying waste down the sink, filter everything through a sieve and only allow water down the drain. This leaves only liquid to be dumped and less chance of solids forming in clumps leaving smells. The sieve can be emptied in the bin.

    Two for the price of one.

    Tip 1: Hide a spare ignition key (and alarm fob) somewhere inside or outside your motorhome where no one will find it.

    Tip 2: Don't post on this thread where you hide your spare ignition key:BigGrin:​

    Our RV is on permanent hook-up at home so I put some ice cubes in a tuppawear container in the freezer. Everytime before we go away I look in the container and if I find that the cubes have turned in to one solid mass of ice then I know that at some point the freezer has defrosted and froze up again which tells me that the frozen food now needs to be discarded.

    Always carry an ample stock of Fray Bentos Steak and Ale pies... (they don't need a fridge/freezer) :)
