35 gallon portable waste tote. Spent quite a bit of time finding the best/easiest one available only to carry it unused for almost 4 years. I guess I just didn't think of the time that it takes to fill two 40 gallon black and two 40 gallon gray water onboard tanks. But,....it's like loose hardware - the minute after you throw it out, you're gonna need it.

Winegard SensarPro for the OTA antenna. I used to use the OTA antenna on occasion. The SensarPro has made it so difficult to use , now it is never used.

I'll second the outside TV/stereo. We have used ours twice in 2 years. It just feels silly sitting outside watching TV.

When we bought our current MH. I took a lot of stuff out of "my" storage bin that had been there for years, unused. RainX, tent pegs, transmission fluid, a hammer, etc. I consolidated my necessary tools into one tool box instead of two. Removed maybe a dozen expired insurance proof cards. A lot of clothing that just seemed to stay in there was removed. We use our oven and microwave a lot, and we need to learn how to use the convection part. W have used the washer/dryer more than we thought, but DW still doesn't want it in there.

Things my 'used' motorhomes had that I never used.

1) Sleep comfort bed - it seriously disagrees with my back no matter what number it's on.
2) TV in the bedroom - always remove it and create a nice linen closet.
3) Radio in bedroom - Never remove just never use it.
4) Outside TV - Never get's used, just a few days ago I watched a couple and their young daughter sit outside in snowsuits, hats and gloves so they could watch the TV on their brand new tag axle Monaco coach. They didn't finish the movie though, the mid 30 degree temps drove them inside.
5) Outside Shower - I've used these about 5 times in 18 years.
6) Satellite Dish - Don't watch enough TV to warrant the cost.

When we bought our CC new, we were excited it had a Splendide combo in it. After a year we pulled it out and made a nice closet out of the space. We are currently looking at a new American with a dishwasher. I wonder how long it will last.
