Welcome to the best RV forum ever.

The search function is very easy now. The original one shown in the picture in the bottom right is basically useless. The little google box really works well.

Thank you all for the post, gadgets can be useful for safely operating our rigs and also be fun when not driving. I have to leave the gadgets alone when driving or I may not make it to my destination. But after stopped I like them.

I'm sure Pasdad doesn't swat too many flies with his zapper while driving but may be better at multi-tasking than I am.😊

I wear clothes, shoes, bathe, don't wear patchouli oil and don't smoke dope, so I don't think I qualify.

But maybe there is a class I can take at the local community college or university extension office?

Your hippying may vary, results not typical, past performance is not an indicator of future performance, consult your doctor if you sit in your RV for more than four hours on a beautiful day, because you should just go outside instead)

I found one of these at a garage sale. Amazing, I hit the thingy on top, and the DW comes and brings me whatever I ask for!

If I ever dinged that bell I'd be doing the "long walk, short pier" thing.

I don't know about "gadgets", except for a CB radio in case you get stuck somewhere where there's no cell service.

But, as far as incidentals go, I would recommend kitchen ware (the same stuff you use at home) such as a coffee-maker, toaster, pots, pans, dishes, silverware, etc. For outside, lounge chairs, small table/tray and a barbecue.

For the bath, the usual such as towels, washcloths, soap, shampoo, toothbrushes & toothpaste, a hair dryer (for the DW), comb & brush, etc.

And, a good flashlight!

Enjoy your travels!

A good quality headlamp is very handy to have.

Glad to see you have a good sense of humor! Sometimes my warped sense of humor pi$$es people off, but not this time!

From what I've been thru the last four years I just want to stay happy for awhile and learn as much and quickly as possible.

I did see a video on Facebook the other day that had a nice little foot operated washing machine. Didn't take up much room and seemed to work well.
Now that's a neat gadget! !!!!

No problem it's tough being lonely.

On the brighter side, check out this foot powered washing machine!

That is a pretty good idea, but the same end result can be had with a five gallon bucket, a lid for it, and a modified plunger, and probably a lot less money.
