Smile Favorite or must have accessories for 2018?

I'm excited for a new outdoor table / cook station I just bought as I didn't care for the table I had so I wanted to share this as one of my "must have" recommendations on top of the valterra gate valve which has come in handy twice to move gray to black giving me one more day!

Check out this folding cook station

But let's take this thread further and let's all share some of our favorite buys for 2018 (accessories, not coaches).

We have that cook station and use it all the time. We found that when using our stove on it the top center table can be slippery. We put two silicone pot holders under the stove and everything stays put.

Neal-How are you using the gate valve to move gray to black?

Twist on gate valve, check 3 times the gate is closed (avoid you know what), pull GRAY handle as it will have the higher pressure, pull BLACK handle, count to 5, close BLACK then close GRAY. Works like a champ! It's silent so you'll have to learn how fast things move.

Large cup holders that fit inside the existing cup holders in near driver and passenger. Great for Yeti ramblers..

Interesting... Seems like a very good idea especially since its always the gray tank that limits us to 3 day trips. Bet one could get maybe 5 days this way. Any issue with 'back flow' of unwanteds into the gray? Any new smells in the shower, etc?

None whatsoever, and I've even removed the gate after and only gray drips out. Seems to work as expected, black does not flow back into the valve.

Here is my add to the list. It might look like an ordinary folding camp chair (https://www.amazon.com/KingCamp-Comp...folding+chairs), but look how compactly this one folds. It will actually fit upright on top of my storage bay slide out tray fitting under the junk under the floors in the half bay (passenger, rear) of my DSDP 4369. We take 4 of these on every trip, and this version is a huge space saver.

Shower Head

This thread has lots of good items - here is one I just tried out this month and it works! Ecocamel's Orbit Softwater Shower head! Surprisingly it produces soft water without the normal softener process! And excellent pressure!

I really enjoy keeping the beautiful DS clean and shiny. Wouldn’t be without this kit.

You will not find a more comfortable camp chair than this. Shop around and you can find them for less than $50. I've had multiple people come into my campsite just so they can sit in them.
