Gadget or time savers?

We will be taking possession of our first MH this month!!! Yea! Bought a 2007 Monaco Executive, 45'. Going full time, sold our home, working on the road.

What kind of gadget(s) or time saving things do you have that you feel others just must have or do?

Here are two of the best things you just cannot live without. Aluminum Folding Step. Can't say enough about this one. I paid double what they sell for now at CW but it was worth it.
Oxygenetic Shower Head. 1st time you have low water pressure in the shower you will appreciate this option.
There are many places that sell these but you can check them out at CW and go from there.

Infrared Thermometer

We just love this device - any time you stop and check out the RV, just aim the laser thermometer at your tires and hubcaps to easily see the temperature of each. Helps determine if tire temp is too high which could mean a blown tire en route.


Digital IR Infrared Thermometer NicetyŽ ST380

IR Thermometer Overview - Meter-Depot Homepage



IR Thermometer ST380
Measures -25 to 716 °F
This is a brand new, high quality Digital IR Infrared Thermometer for non-contact temperature measurements. The meter can be used for accurate measurements of hot surfaces from a safe distance. The distance to spot size ratio is 12:1, that means the ST380 measures a 1 inch diameter spot from 12 inch distance (or 2 inch diameter from 24 inch distance). This IR thermometer has a built in red laser pointer and a multifunctional LCD display with backlight. The switches for laser pointer and the °F/°C switch are located in the battery compartment.
The infrared thermometer can be used in HVAC trade to check the temperature of air conditioners, heaters or furnaces. In the automotive trade it can be used to check for overheating engine parts or blocked cooling system. Electricians use it to detect hot connections, cables or fuses.

Ditto the infrared thermometer. An 18 volt flashlight, rechargeable, and will freestand wherever you place it. Portor Cable, Hitachi or any good brand. The cordless drill with a Phillips attachment is a very handy tool. A small voltmeter is nearly indispensable also.

I've heard of it, but not directly experienced it - but there's a device that expands and strengthens your cell phone service as well as WIFI within the coach. Working from the road, that will be priceless. Also, we have a small printer with WIFI that is awesome...can print from computer, smart phone and tablet directly and wirelessly to printer. No printer cable, so it can be anywhere where it's plugged in!

At some point you will want one of these, or something like it.
Magic Chef MCIM22TW Portable Ice Maker - Walmart.com

and when you buy a table this one is hard to beat.

I put this in the other thread also. Angel soft septic safe is dual ply and works well. I use a clear elbow on my dump and can see it has dissolved. Not so much the northern i tried . Saw globs come popping through with that. That clear elbow also helps you know you really have it cleaned out.
