Karl: I hope the moderators will do that for us.

Handbasket, I'd like to know more about the Sewer Solution. I don't think I've heard about it. I could use something to "pump" the black tank contents uphill to my septic tank. Thanks.

Sagebrush, just enter "Sewer Solution" in the search box at the top of the page; you'll get more than enough hits. Basics: a water driven jet pump ('eductor'), fits on your dump outlet, uses water hose pressure to pump uphill (within limits) thru ~1" hose. Google for a company web site that gives the specs. Costs about $100, works very well.

Made a small rack to hold the cone type coffee filters so they don't lie flat and get messed up in the cupboard. Made a wine glass holder that fits on the inside top of the cabinet doors, out of the way of things inside, and holds 4 wine glasses in cushioned C shaped slots. Making a folding 30" tall 24"x42" table which will fit in my basement and hold the rvq and plates and tools and can sub as an outdoor picnic table for 4. Seems like every trip I think of some other little gizmo to help with storage or to make it easier camping.

We filled our kitchen cabinets with lazy susans...that's what I know them as. It's more or less a plate that rotates on bearings so you have easier access to cups, cans, boxes, etc.

Don't know whether THIS is considered "commercial advertising" but...
I'm still learning about ALL the information that's available from my new best friend & traveling buddy - ScanGauge.

One of the "gizmos" I added is a water sprayer at the front of the motorhome to help wash my windshield.

I attached 1/2" pex tubing from the water line feeding the outside shower head and ran it to the front of the motorhome. It was then attached it to a brass female air compressor fitting mounted on a bracket. I then purchased a regular sink sprayer with extension tubing at Home Depot and put a male air compressor fitting on the end.

I always have clean warm water to wash the windshield or clean the days accumulation of bugs from the front of the motorhome. The sprayer provides enough water without making a mess and is much more convenient than getting a regular hose out.

Lowes sells solar lights that are about the shape and size of two cigarette packs. They can be laid flat on your dash during the day and can be used as night lights when you are dry camping. I bought two and installed on and off switches to turn them off when not in use.
