I would add the following movies to your list:

Back to the Future (the original was better than the two sequels, but they were still good)

The King's Speech - Colin Firth and Helena Bonham Carter were amazing

Seven Years in Tibet - stars Brad Pitt.

Les Miserables - I watched this by accident - thought I had selected a different movie at Red Box. Was disappointed at first, but absolutely enjoyed the movie. Russell Crowe was a surprisingly good singer.

The Final Countdown - originally released to theaters as The Nimitz affair. Stars Kirk Douglas, Martin Sheen, James Farentino, Katharine Ross and Charles Durning. The USS Nimitz aircraft carrier, sailing near Hawaii, goes through a weird storm cell and winds up back in 1941.

It doesn't, but when we go to the race track, or anywhere else for that matter, where we must often 'scrounge' or look for available power in the form of a 20 amp outlet (115v), it's very helpful.

Whenever we've had proper 30 or 50A power, it's not a problem.

This tester works for a thirty amp socket also. You just plug into a 30 to 20 adapter. I never use 20 amp. I keep mine plugged into a 20 to 30 adapter all the time. Plug in the adapter and it tells me if the socket is wired correctly.

Let's not turn this into a gun discussion. It's not permitted here as per this section of our Community Rules.
  • General discussions of politics, general government policies, weaponry, gun rights and religion are not allowed in ANY areas of iRV2. Discussions about current or pending legislation or regulations, weapons and religion that directly pertain to RVing are acceptable but will be closed or removed if they wander off topic or become disruptive.
  • Thanks

1. A note pad and pen to write down the things you will forget that you now need.
2. Two different credit cards. If one gets hacked you will have a backup. Has happened
to me.
3. Print out important phone numbers and carry them in your wallet. I cannot remember all the important numbers in my phone. If you lose your phone, get locked out of your car, you will be able to reach someone.

A free app for the phone manages this. Attach the little transmitter to what you don't want left behind...and when the phone and this device get more than about 30 feet away the app lets you know. You can also reverse the scenario, put the transmitter on your keyring, and it will let you know when you have left your phone behind!

Pasdad1... I'd go broke if I bought just 1/10 the stuff you posted.. hahaha.. but thanks! It's good to know it is out there. One thing on the above item you posted.. it's a bit big and pricey. The "tile" is much smaller and less expensive. It's also on my "someday" list.

http://www.amazon.com/Tile-Item-Find...&keywords=tile

edit: So.. after posting this, I read some of the responses on Amazon. Not very positive. I'd probably stay clear of them. I'm only "not" deleting the post so others are forewarned to read the reviews.

One for the bucket list

Was in Lowe's yesterday and saw my newest must-have gadget for the RV. Wet/dry vacuum that fits on top of the 5-gallon bucket already mentioned as indispensable. The bucket takes the place of the canister, so the vacuum itself is just the almost flat top part of the unit. Takes up very little space. Fairly inexpensive, too, as I recall.

Thanks for that tip! Really sounds like a great item for an RV.

This stuff is a must have. especially if you have little ones that "forget" to close the door. Its for a metered system but a couple squirts a day is plenty.

Hi, did you make it out of PVC pipe? Do I just get an elbow and then a straight piece?

I looked into this when he posted it. I plan on doing the same. If you use Schedule 80 (thicker walls than schedule 40) piping, the 2" dia fits nicely inside the 2-1/2" pipe. That will allow the 'telescope'. Then just a locking pin to hold it up. I plan on a 'semi-permanent' attachment to the back side of my ladder. A little vinyl paint and you'll never see it.
