Only thing I have bought that did not perform as I expected was a tripod stabilizer for the 5er. Helped little. Used it a year, then set it out in front of the trailer at an RV park with a $40 sign on it and it was gone within an hour. About an $80 net loss.

If the item is advertised "As seen on TV" it's probably a Gadget or Gizmo. AKA: JUNK.

One came with our trailer and I put it on Craig’s list. It was gone the next day for $50. I wonder how often these Tri-pods get shuffled from one owner to the next.
