What was the last thing you bought for your RV ?

After experiencing camping in close quarters with minimal services in hot weather at dog hunt trials over the past several weeks, I realized I needed to better protect our neighboring RVers and ourselves from generator exhaust. So I ordered a Camco Gen-Turi RV Generator Exhaust Venting System, fortuitously on sale for a fantastic price at Amazon.ca during the August long weekend!
I also ordered an RV Awning Travel Lock online from Awninglock.com for my A&E WeatherPro Power Awning as a precaution against the awning unfurling in high winds while traveling. This photo is provided courtesy of Clay F. from the Awning Lock website:

I expect to pick up our recent purchases on our return from a two month road trip in our QSDP next week!

Today we bought a 28" Vizio for the living area, 3" king size memory foam mattress topper, midland weather radio, pair of cobra handheld 2-way radios w/weather alerts & full function mount for the vizio. Last week was two new faucets and robe hooks for bedroom & bathroom.

I'll explain how mine goes. Replace as necessary..

I take my 7gal tank and set it where the anti-freeze draw tube is located next to the water pump in a storage bay. That tube is hooked to a Y-Valve. One side draws from the main tank, the other from the anti-freeze tube now at the bottom of my 7gal portable. Got it?

Now, I go to the wet bay that has an outside shower that I have removed the shower hose directly and replaced it with a typical garden quick disconnect. So now I can plug in the shower hose, or anything else, or leave it disconnected and uncluttered. That something else is a 12" hose jumper that hooks to the outside shower faucet, and the other side screws into the external water fill for the tank. There is a second valve that lets you either fill the main tank, or run the RV on shore water. Switch that to FILL and turn on the pump. When I had my 5.8gal Surflo, by the time I walked around to look at the portable tank, it was almost empty.

So, here's the flow:
Water in the portable tank is drawn up through the tube, through the pump, and into the house water system
Since the outside shower is on, water flows out there, through the short pipe, and back into the Ext. Water street spigot. And since you have the Y-Valve selected to FILL, goes into the main tank.

May sound complicated, but I'm done before anyone gets their pump up and running.

The 1st time I read about this I said

Bought a small bottle of Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice. Delicious stuff, I thoroughly enjoyed the juice and then attached a piece of bailing wire and turned the bottle into a Cummins slobber tube drip catcher. I hate seeing the oil drip stains increasing on my new driveway. I had considered the $50 Moroso Oil Breather Filter but decided the low budget route is just fine for something that only I see.

Panelbond to glue basement door skins back onto frames (loose corners).
Fiberglass resin to repair wheel well skirt (blow-out damage) and rear "bumper" above trailer hitch (damage from previous owner).
New 2-year tags.

A set of these Rubbermaid storage bins for the cabover. They work great. We removed the mattress and put down the rubber non-slip stuff so the bins stay in place.

The bins have a clear side that flips open so you don't have to pull the bin down to get at the contents. The clear door makes it easy to see what's in them. We keep all the lightweight stuff up there like dry food, bedding, coats, and other bulky lightweight items.

Excellent idea, we use the Sterelite 7.5 and 15L for storage from can good storage under the couch to nearly every thing that is stored in the outside compartments. The ones you show seem to bee a little cleared than the ones we use.

I've been looking at those bins for some time to put in our cabinets but, they are to large to fit. Over the cab might work for us. Thanks for the post.

The Rubbermaid storage totes come in three sizes. Maybe the medium or small would work. The Home Depot carries them.

Purchased and installed one of those awning drops that leaves a 2' section in the awning roll and just attach the rest with a zipper. And, an awning travel lock too.

We just got ours and love it! We were at a site this past weekend that got the afternoon sun on the awning side, but the extended screen allowed us to sit outside in the shade.
