First aid kits: Make sure it covers almost all possible injuries from burns to breaks!

Convection Microwave Ovens and Stove tops in your camper!

First, let me say they cook different than a propane oven. Be sure to read your instructions and understand your convection oven. I found a calculator on the Internet to convert my baking recipes to avoid disasters!

Here’s a calculator to convert your baking times and temps!

Single ply vs Double ply Toilet Tissue!

There is no question about it, single ply is best! However, your black tank will not fill up as quick if you have room for a waste basket in your small RV bathroom, and you just toss it whether it is single or double ply!

 

 

When you freeze leftovers!

The freezer section leaves a lot to be desired in an RV to say the least. So, in order to save space, take that left over soup and poor it in a zip bag. Lay flat in a pan that fits in your freezer and allow enough time for it to freeze partially. This way, you can take it out of the tray and lay it on the freezer shelf saving much needed space!

Advice on frying while living in a camper

Don’t! Your best bet is to do it outside! It’s risky indoors in such a small space. It also can damage your cooking area by getting to hot and scorching walls or counter tops. You will also most likely smell dinner for several days. A propane fryer is great and safe outdoors. I really don’t like the electric fryers, they’ve never really performed well and they are difficult to keep a safe temperature when frying.
