    Nancy & Jonathan New RVillagers Group:
    January 7, 2019Since my husband & I are both new to RVing, I have some questions: 1. How do you pack breakables, like dishes, glasses, bottles of wine, for traveling? 2. What are the five most important add-ons to get for a 5th wheel? Already doing the slide cover....  more

      Brenda & George January 7, 2019 One thing we added was a washer dryer with pan. Laundry is expensive on the road and I dont like using washers someone else has used for who knows what. :) And depending on your love for TV, you might want to add satellite. Also, the camera for the rear ...  more

        Nancy & Jonathan January 7, 2019 Thank you Brenda & George.  I thought about a washing machine.  We do not have a lot of space, but I will look into the washer / dryer options.
      • Nancy & Jonathan
        Gipseyjoe January 7, 2019 Definitely the rear camera.

      Kay and Russ Wallace January 7, 2019 We carry our wineglasses in a wine box. The separation keeps them from breaking. We drink mostly box wine, but we do have one case of bottle wine. Coffee mugs travel nicely in the cupboards as will most dishes. We put a paper towel between the cover and t...  more

      Rambling Reids January 7, 2019 We bought Tervis wine glasses, rock glasses, etc.  No need to worry about breakage.

        Nancy & Jonathan January 7, 2019 For now, I am going to try to use whatever extra stuff I have at home, so we are not making a huge investment in all the things we need day to day on the road.  After we decide we love this lifestyle, then I can invest in whatever I like!
    • Nancy & Jonathan
      Solo Joe January 7, 2019 I highly recommend getting unbreakable dishes and glasses. No worries when you're traveling, reduces weight in the RV, no worries if you drop something at the sink. For must have glass items, I use non-skid shelf liner for cushioning. Most important add-o...  more

      Bill & Connie January 7, 2019 We carry very little glassware. Tervis glasses, wine glasses and mugs. Glass and RVs do not mix well
    • Nancy & Jonathan
      LarandSus January 7, 2019 I have my 2 wine glasses in a drawer with my dish towels. Dishes are Corelle stacked in a drawer. Cups and glassware are in a drawer separated by an Ikea drawer divider. Cupboards and drawers are lined with the grip type shelf liner. I mostly drink box wi...  more

      Ronnie & Pam January 7, 2019 Put that rubber looking shelf paper in your cabinets & it will keep dishes & glasses from sliding around & breaking.
    • Nancy & Jonathan
      TheClearyClan January 7, 2019 We bought a large roil of bubble wrap. We cut pieces to put between nested glasses, cups, dishes, etc. You can reuse the pieces over and over again. If you lift the grate off the stove and place a dishtowel over the burners then put...  more
    • Nancy & Jonathan
      Rob & Toni January 7, 2019 Agree with non skid shelf liners. We also added dish organizers from Walmart (wire racks). We have Corelle set, but use plastic cups/wine glasses. For our cabinets, we use a plastic serving spoon through door handles to prevent opening while traveling. As...  more

        Brenda & George January 7, 2019 Do you use an app for RV GPS?
      • Nancy & Jonathan
        LarandSus January 7, 2019 We used the Garmin RV770 not an app. To us, it's critical. It also let's is input length, height and weight to keep us out of trouble with bridge heights and road weight restrictions and has the option of selecting non RV mode.
      • Nancy & Jonathan
        Kay and Russ Wallace January 7, 2019 I use the Good Sam Rand McNally RV GPS because it lets me put in the weight and height of my rig and doesn’t route me down roads that exceed my limits. It also allows me to use it it non-RV mode when I am not towing.

      Angie Starrett Wampler January 7, 2019 we are new rver's and all this idea's are great thanks

      Rob & Toni January 7, 2019 I use Garmin RV 770. Has same features as Rand Mcnally. I don't believe there is an app...yet

      Mike and Donna Wagner January 7, 2019 Answering #1 - we lay our wine bottles down in a cupboard after slipping each one inside an old heavy-duty cotton sock. Works great, no breakage, no rattles, and the socks have a second life, and they don’t wear out again while being wine socks - LOL. ~Donna
    • Nancy & Jonathan
      Okietravellers January 7, 2019 Don’t know if it was that we had older units. We had a 2004 TT & a 2010 fifth wheel, I used gripper liner in shelves but only containers to put dishes in. I used my Mikasa dinner ware, serving bowels & all. The glasses were packed back in box came in. Not...  more

      Carlos & Moriah January 7, 2019 Don't pack breakables at all.  My wife and I started traveling together in cabin boats before RVs (floating RVs that take a pounding).  I've been RVing and boating most of my life.  Breakables just never go on board.  Plastic plates, p...  more
    • Nancy & Jonathan
      K&R Miller January 7, 2019 We use corelle for dishes, on edge in a box with other things tight enough that they don't rattle.  Ditto for glassware including stemless wine glasses.  Wound up having to drive over a curb once and that left some things on the floor but was th...  more

      Nancy & Jonathan January 8, 2019 I'm going to have to start writing all this down.  Thanks for all the great info.  Didn't know Garmin made a GPS for RVers.  I love my Garmin.  I don't have the type of phone to use "Apps" - still a bit old fashioned that way.

        Mike and Donna Wagner January 8, 2019 Nancy & Jonathan - I found out in our RVing experiences that I really need and constantly use “apps” - to plan trips, to avoid bad weather enroute, to find camping, to find fuel and food, etc. etc.  So I did give up my flip phone a couple of years ag...  more

        Alway's Rolling January 9, 2019 we use small bungee's on cabinet handles to prevent any door's from flying open, and I use thin Styrofoam, board cut to size, put in front of cabinet=door, & between items, like dishes,glass bowl's, etc. to protect myself when 1st opening, in case of shif...  more

      Jackie Henson January 8, 2019 I went to Joannes and bought squares of felt to lay between my Corelle plates and stacked bowls.  Also use t-towels between glasses.

        LarandSus January 8, 2019 I use felt squares between my pans to protect the coating and keep them from clanking. Think I got mine at Wal-Mart for about 25 cents each.

      Nancy & Jonathan January 8, 2019 My husband has an I-Phone and an iPad, so I guess we will be OK on the road.  Also have a box of styrofoam that was around my quilting frame my husband gave me for Christmas.  All of your comments got me thinking that I might be able to use some...  more

      TheClearyClan January 8, 2019 For those of you who are using cellphone or tablet apps for GPS routing be careful. Most do not allow for the weight, hight, length, width and propane restrictions of some roads.

      TheClearyClan January 8, 2019 A few years ago I walked into Home Depot and bought a couple of these wine glasses. It looked like one of the displays with an item you will never see again (I have not seen them again).

      MTSassi January 9, 2019 The rubberized shelf liner will become  your friend. It can be put between stuff and also under stuff to keep it from sliding around.
