Overlooked things

Recommended Posts

The recent discussion regarding the Andersen WDH and the location of the water drain valve got me to thinking about what other items can be overlooked, not remembered, forgotten, etc.  One of those items just might be the glass plate in the microwave.  Even though I've never had a problem with the microwave door coming open while on the road, I was cautioned that I should always remove the glass plate prior to traveling because the door can come open on rough roads and the glass plate would certainly shatter as it bounced around.  I simply take it out of the microwave and place it in the cabinet right above.

 

Does anyone remember any other thing(s) of that nature?

After removing the microwave glass, we tape the door closed. Found the bathroom faucet bumps against the wall during travel, so we installed clear bumpers where the faucet contacts the bathroom wall.

 

Sounds like checklist items.

After having the starboard wheel of our first Oliver drop into a hole when I made too tight of a right turn, I discovered the door to our microwave had been opened by the force.  The tempered glass platter on the inside had sailed out along with a brand new Coleman lantern globe that I had placed inside to keep it safe from breaking.  It appeared that they had both encountered the side dinette table top during their exodus and had shattered into about a million tiny shards of glass.

 

Never wanting to have to clean up that mess again, we started placing the platter under a mattress while on the move. Feeling that this method was really only a patch to the problem, I searched for some sort of catch or latch to keep the microwave closed.  I found these Multi Use Latches on Amazon. We have used them on the microwave door, at the base of the shower door to keep it open and behind a Keurig coffee machine to keep it on the counter, all with great success.

We just left the microwave plate at home. Never used it. Micro is a great breadbox for us.

 

Everybody had a different camping style . You'll find what works for you.
