What you're describing is the good ol' boathook, of course, but landlubbers might not have ever seen such a thing.

I could use one to reach the buttons on the ATM when I'm in my muscle car (a maneuver which otherwise threatens to sprain my rotator cuff muscles). Gotta figure out how to mod the thing to hold the bank card to stuff it into the slot and take it back out.

If you try crossing a flooded street and end up floating, you could always try poling downriver a la Tom Sawyer!

Sorry, DPtoo we're talking about the steel hook that comes with your awning. If you carrying a boat hook you're in the wrong hobby> LOL

Well, I didn't have it with me the time, but I sure wish'd I did. I dumped my litter bag trash into a dumptster and oops! I also dumped my truck keys. Dang! First thing that came to mind was "I sure wish I had that hooker with me" I did manage to get the keys out eventually but the "hook" would'a been perfect for fishing the keys out of that dumpster.

I never thought of all the uses it has. I am tall enought (6'-1") to reach the release switch and the awning rope without ever having to use the hook. Looks like I will have to rummage around and see if I can still find the thing.

After getting everything set up, I was about to put the tablecloth on the picnic table, when I noticed dried up bird doo-doo. I just used the hook to scrape it off the table before putting my tablecloth on!

Pull the dump hose out of the hollow bumper if it slides in too deep to reach. My 6-yr-old came up with that one as I was shoulder-deep in the bumper to no avail!

Cheers!

Umungus--I'm really liking that use for the "tool"! We've been worried that we wouldn't be able to reach the hose in there. Now we don't have to anymore! Thanks!

OK, this is pretty gross but once when we were dry camping and we had told the kids not to use too much water, we ended up with a sh__ pyramid that eventually kept the valve from closing on the toilet. So guess what fit down there to stir things up?

Lynnvt.. sorry to bust your bubble, but that particular use was in fact #12 in the original list of uses. Apparently, the pyramid syndrome is becoming a fairly common occurance....... heh heh

Cheers!
