I bought one quite like it a while back... can't remember the brand.

Dang, I said. Back to digital, I said.

We found a InterDesign Suction Clock. It's round, 4" wide and about 1.5" deep. It has a brushed stainless steel casing with a clear plastic "crystal"...and is water resistant.

It's battery operated...a single AAA (included). It has 5 suction cups on the back that stick to the aluminum interior walls of the Bambi like octopus suckers, even without moistening them. We have not traveled with it yet, but I'll be VERY surprised if it doesn't hold. It's easily removed to relocate if needed. (Use both hands on opposite sides...it sits away from the wall far enough to get your finger tips under the casing so that it comes off without coming into contact with the aluminum walls.) It left no marks on the aluminum. It will not stick to painted surfaces or laminates. (I tried. The packaging says it's good for glass/mirror, steel, tile and fiber glass.)

We got it at Bed Bath & Beyond for $14.99 + tax for a total of $16.20. We found it in the bathroom dept...I think it's actually intended for use in a shower or bathroom (therefore it's diminutive size). We checked online and found it on Amazon for a little less (probably the best price if you have Prime and don't pay shipping). It was $12.99 on BB&Beyond online but with $5.99 shipping (+ tax, potentially) it was more than buying it locally and paying local sales tax. We also found it priced as high as $46.

We are pretty happy with it! You know how we are all drawn to anything silver. And the price is definitely right.

Here are some pics, including the packaging:
like it. it is hard to get the right size clock for the space. good price point. is it "silent" or a ticker?

I don't see why you couldn't since base looks like the three holes are evenly spaced around 120 degrees. However, my tailgate doesn't hit. The instruction manual says to not turn it, not sure why. Here are pictures and a video:

Thanks for the photos & video! Hey, those smart folks at Husky clearly designed the housing to clear a tailgate as it opens. Very nicely done! Barker can't seem to manage that, which is why we finally turned the power head.

The clock is silent.

I am watching now to see how it actually keeps time...will update later on that.

The Super Jack by H & H Engineering a division of Barker arrived today.
Also, I got an email from Airstream describing the routing of the refrigerator condensation drain and the part number for the low point drain valves.

A couple of 20"x34" Double Border rugs from BB&B, on sale. We chose "Slate Blue / Sand," which looks great with our decor. Each rug fits perfectly between the queen bed and the outside wall in our 27FB, just right for not freezing feet when getting out of bed on a chilly fall morning.
