Helpful Hints for Truck Camping

Dryer Sheets in the Bays. Most RVers, at one time or another, are bothered and sometimes inconvenienced, by mice entering their RV through holes in the bays and floor—and making nests or eating various parts of the RV or its contents. A helpful hint used by many RVers to reduce or eliminate this problem is to put dryer sheets  into each lower bay. Somehow, the mice don’t like the smell.

This seems like an easy way to protect from mice. I can throw a few sheets underneath the water containers and in the corners of the truck bed. This hint came from here.

Keep the inside of the truck smelling fresh : grow lemons.

Grow lemons


Please use organic lemon seeds since some non-organic lemon seeds may be incapable of germinating.
1. Soak the lemon seeds for 24 hours.
2. Gently pat dry.
3. Carefully peel the outer shell – do not damage the inner seed.
4. Plant the seeds approximately one-half inch deep in the potting soil, moisten the soil slightly.
5. Add just enough small pebbles to cover soil.Cover the top of the pot in which you planted it with plastic wrap to reduce evaporation so that the seed soil will not rapidly dry out.
6. Place on top of your refrigerator (in the back of the truck), the heat will help it grow.
7. When you see the lemon seeds sprouting remove plastic wrap. Be careful not to over water – soggy seeds will be a fungus.

Your lemon tree will very likely produce tasty lemons in about 15 years. This lemon hint came from here

Another tip came from a site that no longer exists in my memory.

While the blood is gushing hold pressure and crack open an egg. Peel membrane off and put it on the wound (continue holding pressure) The membrane will harden and keep the wound closed until you can get to the ER for stitches.
