Ordered the single burner induction cooktop from Amazon and am using it on shore power and with a Honda 6500 inverter gen mounted in the truck. Also tried the one I bought on the van (a 10 year old electrically 'dirty' Onan 2800 microlite) and it worked fine so it doesnt seem too sensitive for general RVing. BTW they also have a 2 burner and a commercial 1 burner unit available but they cost a lot more.

Very nice. I like the vinyl idea.

Picked up a PrecisionTemp RV-550 tankless water heater, direct from the factory as we passed through Cincinnati. It's the "NSP" model, which will vent through the floor and requires cutting no extra holes in the sidewalls.

Looking forward to our first long, hot shower.

I have a small vinyl cutting business on the side. I designed it on my computer and then cut it out and applied to hubs.

Well I noticed more cr@p, so I replaced my cr@p eliminators yesterday.

Lasted four years, pretty good....

Bright orange rope, a magnet and a large cleavis pin to replicate pahaska's backup cam hitch guide. Works like a dream!

Viair 450p compressor to cold fill truck and trailer tires before hitting the road (was surprised to be down 5-10 lbs on almost all 8 tires!). Very helpful first to be able to do that cold and to not have to worry about getting in and out of gas stations for that....now I just have to figure out which attachment I'll need to blow out water lines for winterizing (just one more thing....)

I can see I'm never going to be able to retire since I'm going to have to have a good enough revenue stream to keep picking up just this one last thing ... :-)

Thank you for the chuckle. I wonder how many of us are sharing the boat? Almost every day seems to produce a new "need". Jim

I am intrigued by the induction cooktop. I am amazed that they are so affordable....may have to snag one for myself.


I baked macaroons on our last outing. It was my first time using the oven. All went well, but the cheap-o oven mitts I got didn't offer much protection. Last week I saw these on Etsy and got them. The folks at BSOriginals will customize them for you. So cute!

I like your new tire and wheel upgrade on your 93 34'. It really looks great!

Two new tires, mounted, balanced and then and dragged home, and then installed by me on our Globetrotter, as the sun set. It's true, there is always something else to purchase, but the trailer has become a part of our family and no one complains.
