Just to go the other way... One thing I use ALL the time is my RVQ. I know folks hate them, etc.. But mine works well, does not heat the side of my RV, I never leave it unattended and like most things if used correctly is fine. Granted, it's only good for maybe 4 burgers, or 2 large steaks, so you have to know it's limitations. OH! and our walkie talkies, we DO NOT yell back and forth while backing into a campsite. But thoroughly enjoy the show when others do! [emoticon]

We just bought a Shark 18 volt vac. Lightweight, small and easy to use. Great for an RV and picks up a lot of stuff. Easy to dump the canister too.

Yes, I love the green handle diesel pumps too. Years ago I found out the hard way that BP gas stations do not use green OR yellow handles for their diesel pumps lol.

Blind spot mirrors were my very first addition. Got then the second I took possession of the RV. Not all that safe driving without.

I try to use my sense of humor, twisted as it may be. When things seem to go wrong a little too often, by looking at things from a different angle, you will often find a silver lining.

As the Jimmy Buffett lyrics go, "if we couldn't laugh, we would all go insane".

Aside from lots and lots of diesel fuel......pots and pans, stovetop/oven, Shark upright vacuum, propane furnace for about 1/3 of our camping, XM radio, solar panels, Weber gas grill, our 5cu.ft. chest freezer, and of course the bed (sleep) [emoticon]

Kind of tough to answer - we use the frig, bathroom, stove top, awning, etc etc.

As to awning, we use "de-flappers", the clamps that attach halfway up the awning on either side.

Use camp chairs all the time... speaking of which, we got small cloth folding "camp tables" that we use all the time.
