Besides a confession of owning the afore-metioned cap-clipping LED lights (which are great, no matter how geeky they sound)...

(1) round silver spice tins with a clear window top and magnetic bottoms that stick to the side of the stove hood (World Market, $1.99 ea)...(Pic #1 below)...

(2) brushed stainless steel hooks and hooks with bars that hang on cabinet doors for hanging coats, towels, dog leashes, etc...really handy little things...move 'em where ya need 'em...(Bed, Bath and Beyond, 2 hooks for $7.99; Bar with Hooks $9.99)... (Pics #2 & 3)

(3) "water-thief" for those situations where there's no threading on a hose or faucet you need to thread to...(Camping World, $3.49) (Pic #4)

(4) and for the dogs (and cats)...the "Water-Boy" pet watering dish that doesn't spill when in motion on the road ...we have 2..one for in the AS and one for outside... (Pic #5) 3 Quart Lixit Waterboy Dog/Cat Waterer: Beaver Creek Aviary - foryourbird.com ($12.95)

Swiffer Picker Upper

I just discovered the swiffer picker-upper - makes the dusting chores go so fast at home and in the trailer, gets in all those hard to reach places. But then you guys are having way too much fun with your other gadgets.

Can't beat the price...

I always keep a "special bed making tool" tucked in the magazine pocket above the bed in the Airstream.
It makes it so much easier to tuck the bedding into those hard to reach corners.

It's also known as "that free paint stirring stick" from the hardware store.

Low tech but it works great...

Great idea. Thank you. Now why didn't I think of that before. I see a trip to the paint store in our immediate future.

And they make them in large and small sizes (1-gal vs. 5-gal cans)!

Andy,

Neat gagets. What kind of a boost in mileage can you achieve using an altimeter, etc?

I had a special tank installed behind my grey tank. I can dump on anyone who follows too close. Yeah the stuff stains for years. It is actually a very bright red.

I am done with doctors for the time being, almost. I have two next week. One follow up to sinus surgery and the other a FAA medical exam. I am anticipating getting my medical back and I want to start flying as soon as possible.
