I guess this is as good a site to place this. While sitting around my campsite last week I was thinking about what item I carried that I could not be without , well here it is.The steelhook that is used to pull down your awning. You can use it for the following:

1. Pull down your awning.
2. Reach into the bed of your truck for something out of reach.
3. Reach under your rig to move leveling blocks.
4. Move tree branches that may hit your roof.
5. Move wood around in your Campfire as a poker.
6. Toast marshmallows.
7. Pick up litter around your campsite.
8. Pick up clothing in your trailer.
9. Knock apples down from a tree.
10. Retreive items from your storage boxes.
ll. Use as a barbecue fork.
12. Stick in your toilet to move things around so that it drains.
13. Prod your mate to do things you want done.

Anyone else may feel free to add to this list

Captain Bud, have you considered that just maybe you have 11 and 12 reversed in order?? Some one was bound to ask. The fire would sterilize it. Happy camping!!!

I used it to snake the cruise control cable I was installing from the servo unit in front of the firewall to the throttle linkage. I would have been lost if I didn't have it. Just used a couple of ties to fasten the cable to it and shoved it through.. Voila!!!

I used ours for a splint on the TV antenna when high winds in Washington sent the front half up at a 90 degree angle

Well Captain, I have in the past used mine to wrangle a rattle snake out of the way a couple times and to chase a mouse out of the engine compartment once, retrieve the sixpacks of pop from the river a couple times as well

With your slide out open, place the end against the trailer and then mark on the rod where the slide-out ends. Then, if you pull into a campsite and are not sure if you have enough room to open the slide, use the rod as a measuring stick. Place the end against the trailer and you will be see whether or not you have enough room!

Who'd have thought there'd be so many uses for a steel hook!

I have a roll-top cover on the bed of my truck, and when I couldn't reach something way in back, and was too lazy to open the cover so I could jump in and get it, I grabbed the hook and pulled it out with that! So, #2 gets a high ranking from me! I'll have to remember how useful this tool is in the future! However, if Mr. Mik ever decides to poke me with it to get me to do something, it might end up as a nice tie around his neck, which will then give a new use for it as formal wear! !

Galley dump valve is under slide and I usually forget to open it before extending the slide.
Now rather than crawling under I reach in with my handy dandy tool and pull the valve open
