Many state and federal parks have these hydrants for water, and there is no way to attach a normal hose.....enter the water bandit ! It's stretchy silicone grips the outlet and allows you to get water via your hose....for temporary use only.

Top Ten Items You Should Carry

There are many good items mentioned here and more time on the road and camping will provide the experience needed to refine each persons 'stash'.Full timers will probably have the need for more 'stuff'.We full time and have steadily added more items over time.I seen some small levels mentioned but I would suggest a 'torpedo' level,it's light weight and can be placed just about anywhere,even better if it's magnetic.

If you are fortunate enough to have a big residential refrigerator in your RV, then most likely it's not crammed full - which is a good thing....the downside is things might slide around or fall over. These little goodies attach to the shelving to hold items from sliding while driving.

Walks, hikes, and working on the rv won't keep you in shape...those muscles will continue to gradually deteriorate - you need a bit of strength training. Use a trx suspension trainer or less expensive Elite WOSS suspension trainer, u-fill it kettlebells, and water-filled dumbbells (aquabells).

Great for leveling the coach when your autolevel isn't working!

How about a Dremel for the smaller projects. Drill, saw, sand, grind and buff. Very light weight, compact, low power consumption and cheep.

pasdad1, you are correct about residental refrigerators. Ours is rarely full, except at the beginning of a trip when we have moved the entire contents of our s&b refrigerator into the MH.

What we've found that works for us is using the various sized plastic containers to organize the refrigerators contents. These came from Container Store.

You have a lot of options depending on what you want to accomplish. Do you want to amplify the signal from a single cell phone? Or multiple cell phones? Or a 4G LTE Wireless Internet signal, Or all the cellular signals in your RV?

The previous poster gave you a good lead sending you to Wilson Electronics website. This is where I purchased the Multi-room Amplifier that handled upto 4G LTE signals. This is an important factor to determine as many amplifiers will only work with 3G signals.

Although my choosen system is designed for a house and spacing the antenna far enough from the booster was challenging I did successfully set this sysem up, using the optional Omni-directional antenna in our 45' MH.

Hope this helps!

Dido's on the "MY RADAR" weather app. It tracks you by GPS and puts a dot on the screen right where you are. We all used it last week at Hunting camp. We had some heavy freezing rain coming in and it told us right when to get out of the woods and head back to camp. No fun hunting in that stuff as no self respecting deer would be out in that either.
And it is a FREE app.
