Exquisite Comfort Fit For An Epicure

I love this hammock. I could swing in it for hours, getting absolutely nothing done but some serious meditation.

Double Camping Hammock - Wolfyok Lightweight Portable Nylon Hammock with Parachute Nylon Ropes and Solid Carabiners for Backpacking, Camping, Travel, Beach, Yard, 126"(L) x 78"(W) Support Up to 660lbs


First off it's jumbo! There is enough room to lay down in it and pull the hammock all around you, hiding from everyone else, or sleeping peaceably without leaves and bird poop raining down on you.

Sure you can put 2 people in it, but that is more for sitting sideways in it in my opinion. I love that his is rated for heavy use at 660 pounds.

I am a fan of sitting sideways in it, like a floating chair. I love rocking myself back and forth this way. I have a lot of aches and pains from arthritis and other complications. This hammock just takes away the pain. The weightlessness of just riding on air is oh so comforting.

I like the attached back. It never gets lost. The bag can also be used to hold a book or bottle of water or both. The hammock easily stuffs right back into the attached bag. The parachute fabric is very sturdy, but lightweight and breaths nicely. The stitching is triple, which is very important for a well padded lady like me. I surely don't want my hammock splitting at the seams.

The carabiners included with it appear sturdy with smooth edges that won't snag on the fabric. I have been using this hammock every day for two weeks and so far it is very comfy and cozy. It got wet in the rain and dried up quickly once the torrent stopped.

The only reason I took a star off my otherwise  5 star super happy rating, was for the rope and tree straps. The tree straps were too tiny and useless. The ropes seemed OK, but I didn't use them. I used 2 adjustable hanging straps that are 10 feet long with 15 loops sewn into each strap so that once the straps are up, it's easy to hang the hammock, adjusting it until the right height is achieved. These are the ones I used for  hanging my Wolfok hammock:

Hammock Straps (Set of 2), Sahara Sailor Hammock Tree Hanging Straps 1400+ LBS Heavy Duty Non-Stretch Suspension System Kit


I think they should sell the hammock with 2 different price points. One with just the hammock alone, in case you already have a stand or looped tree straps already. A second option at a different price would be to include the 10 feet, 15 looped straps in a pair with the hammock, for super simple fast hanging. I think buyers would love that as an extra option.

The quality is superb, I  love my hammock.

Great Idea For Identical Key Types that are Keyed Differently



This is a great idea if you have a stack of similar keys and want to organize them.

Ragu Key Organizer Key Chain Key Holder Pocket Organizer Compact Design Aircraft Aluminum Material Fit up to 10 Keys


In my case, my keys are all different types, so I wasn't able to use this effectively.

You also need separate instructions which they happily email you after purchase, so you can figure out how to install the keys and put it back together again. Then you can attach it to a regular loop (not included) with other keys if you want to be able to hang it up.

It's a great idea for identical keys. you can stack them up and have them fit nice and neatly inside. It would be easy over time to memorize which key fits what and not have to fumble around reading labels.

For instance if you are a landlord with 10 different units, you could neatly install all 10 keys. Or if you have 10 different padlocks from the same company but each one keyed differently, you could put them inside this case neatly.

Read Carefully Before Ordering, Picture, Product and Dimensions Are Different

Suburban 6261ACW Colonial White Water Heater Access Door

This was a disaster.

It's a door and flange, nearly 15 inches across.

It did not fit a 6 gallon Suburban water heater which came as standard equipment on a Pleasure-Way van camper Class B. The original door flew off the camper some where between Key Largo and 400 miles later, when it was discovered missing.

We needed a 12 by 12 inch radius door that sits on pins. This one came with a hinge and a flange, the sizing is way different that shown on the product page. I have included a picture of the tape measure across the door we received that shows the door is almost 15 inches across.

We needed Polar White and this is Colonial White. We didn't realize when ordering this that Suburban was using two different "white" colors, so that was our fault. Just so you know, the Polar White is whiter and brighter than the Colonial White which leans more towards beige.

If you need a door for your Suburban hot water heater, heaven help you. They come in bewildering sizes and colors and you are forced into paying for the included flange and frame. You can not get just the door. 

By the way, Suburban hot water heaters are now sold by:


I contacted them about getting a replacement door and they don't sell them directly and even so, they only manufacture and sell the door with the complete frame and flange in bewildering sizes. It's up to the consumer to find a 3rd party that may or may not have the correct door for sale. If you are lucky enough to get the right door, you have a metal frame and flange to pay for with it.  

It's counterproductive to toss a brand new frame and flange into the dump or recycle bin. 

Reading many RV forums, I find that we are not alone in this ridiculous dilemma. 

Not an eco-friendly way to do business at all!




An Angle Replicating Tool That Works Magnificently


BaiEcom NEW IMPROVED Angleizer Measuring Template Tool With Metal Knob &FREE 2 EXTRA SCREWS For All Angles and Forms| Durable | Easy To Use Tightening Mechanism | For All Surfaces

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XVL431D/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ll1&tag=recreationalvehicles-20&linkId=50ca682863ec75ab50d89d11fae4a4b0


This is a nifty tool I never knew existed until now.

In the past I have done so many projects around my old motorhome and messing about on boats, where this tool would have been invaluable.

Now that I have many more upcoming projects, I snagged this tool for making difficult angles and templates far simpler, much easier.

In my little old motorhome, angles are not perfectly 90 degrees, walls don't always run exactly straight. Laying down vinyl tile, it's critical to have each tile fit perfectly. This newfangled angle-izer solves the problem.

I only wish it had come in a reusable case to protect it between uses, but that's just me, I want to protect all my tools. I tried to put it back inside the clam shell packaging but once you've played around with it, it's not going back in the original packaging without redoing it precisely as it was packaged and that takes too much time if you are busy.

It's calibrated in inches and metric. Very handy in today's world.

Gotta run now and get onto my next project!

Handy Snap Rings

10PCS Aluminum Carabiner Clip 2 inch (2")/5 cm - Durable D Shape Carabiner for Home RV Camping Fishing Hiking Traveling Backpack and Keychain - Gift for dad - child - adult.





10PCS Aluminum Carabiner Clip 2 inch (2")/5 cm - Durable D Shape Carabiner for Home RV Camping Fishing Hiking Traveling Backpack and Keychain - Gift for dad - child - adult.

These D rings are super useful. 

My small active dog wears a vest type harness that attaches with velcro across his back. To hook in his leash, there are two rings, one on each side of the vest. Once those are both hooked into his leash, then he is safe to walk outside on his leash. If he is rambunctious, the two rings attached to the leash keep him firmly inside his harness so he can't get loose and out in traffic. 

Now with these new carabiner 2 inch rings, I can just hook one to the rings on his vest. When I am ready to walk him, it's much easier to snap the leash on. The aluminum is so lightweight he doesn't even notice the extra hardware. 

At the other end of his leash around the handle, I attach one of these D rings with my house key when I take him out  walking to do his lumps and leaks. 

I have one of those day packs for hiking that holds my camera, phone and water bottle. It has straps on ithe utility bag where these D rings can be easily affixed for light weight items. I use these D rings  to connect my soft sleeve zippered sunglass case, my vehicle key, and my little compass. Each item has it's own carabiner. Because these are aluminum rather than heavier steel the added weight is minimal.

Not Just For Kids, This Whimsical Light Is Loads of Fun and Handy Too



This lamp is cute as can be. It's not just for kids. It can add a bit of whimsy to any decor.

The flexible flower is useful for aiming your light perfectly. On the flip side, it's fun to let the stance of the flower indicate your mood or the weather. You can have a tall elegant flower, or a confused one all curled up or even a wilted flower.

The flower on the bottom is actually a suction cup to hold your phone. There is also an extra USB port for charging your phone. That's right, stick the phone on the suction cup, plug it in and charge it right off the lamp.

OCOOPA Children Table Lamp Touch Control LED Dimmable Desk Lamp Flexible Gooseneck Eye caring Reading Light with Sucker Phone Holder USB Rechargeable Kids Lamp for Study, Green


The lamp has its own rechargeable lithium battery. This means you can unplug, pick up and go anywhere with the lamp without dragging an electrical cord around with it.

For tiny homes, this means you can have one lamp do the duty of a dozen lamps, by just moving it around to where ever you need the lighting next.

I live in a motorhome, having this cute lamp around is great. I've carried it to read in bed, set it up on the dining table where I type, moved it outdoors to read at night and generally had the neighbors laughing at my eccentric light.

Upgrade Your Dashboard For Today's Electronic Lifestyle

Otium 3-Socket Cigarette Lighter Splitter 12V/24V 120W Power Adapter with 6.5A 4-Port USB Car Charger and Power On/Off Switch for iPhone iPad Samsung Galaxy GPS Dashcam Radar Detector and More
 I adore this. It's perfect for my motorhome. I have a back-up camera and a GPS both requiring a 12 volt outlet. On top of that I need USB to keep my MP3 player charged up so I can listen to it through my stereo speakers while bouncing down the highways.

My phone uses USB to stay fully charged. I now have a dash cam that requires USB power to run continuously, so this is just fantastic for upgrading my 1994 motorhome into the 21st century.

When plugged in, it lights up displaying the voltage of your battery right away. Super handy!

It has an on-off switch just above the battery indicator, so you can leave it stuck in the cigarette lighter outlet 24/7. Just turn it off when not in use to save battery power. The red LED lights will go out to let you know it is off.

The male end of the plug is sturdy and fits the cigarette lighter outlet nice and snug. It also has a protective fuse in the plug, so if it stops working, check your fuse.

The base came with 3M double stick tape already applied. Just peel off the protective shield on the tape, then stick on the dash. Clean the dash area with alcohol first, so the adhesion will have a clear clan surface to adhere.

I plugged in everything I typically use while driving, then held the base up in various areas until I found the perfect spot to attach mine.

The picture I have included shows where I  permanently mounted mine on the dash of my 1994 motorhome which is the same dashboard used on Ford E350 vans.

The outer case of this is rubbery with a nice feel. Mine is plain flat black which suits my gray dash just fine. The cord from the male socket to the triple female sockets is heavy duty, nothing flimsy at all. This seems built to last.

I am very pleased with this product and upgrade.

The Last Pair Of Shears You May Ever Buy Because These Are PERFECTION

These scissors are a treasure. They remind me of my mother's shears she had for sewing. As children, we were under strict orders to NEVER touch her shears and she was emphatic that they ONLY be used for cutting fabrics.When she began teaching me how to sew I was able to use her beloved shears which cut cloth perfectly  each and every time.

Evergreen Art Supply Super Scissors Stronger Than Stainless Steel Heavy Duty Scissors, Industrial High Carbon Steel with Comfort Grip Perfect for the Artist, Student, Home or Office


Sadly, I've never found a pair of scissors like my mother's beloved ones until NOW.

These are quality shears with a capital Q. The craftsmanship that went into these shears is very evident. They arrived in a beautiful box, with a plastic sheave over the blades. I pulled them out and could smell and feel the oil that had been thoughtfully applied. My first impression was deja vu, my mother's beloved shears have been reincarnated!

FINALLY someone has made top rate shears at a fair price. These are not cheap in cost, but their quality is superb. If you take your sewing or artwork or day to day life seriously, then you want the right tool for the right job.

These scissors are simply FANTASTIC.

I am updating this review because I needed to trim my long hair. The ends had split and it was making it hard to wash and comb. On a whim,  I realized that the best scissors in the house were these Evergreen ones, so I decided to trim my long hair with them. Amazing! I know this is a bit unorthodox, but hey, the 9 inch blades were long and super sharp, so I was able to trim my locks neatly. I even received 2 compliments from folks that didn't realize I had trimmed it myself... with these shears.

I gave these 5 stars because the scissors are EXCELLENT quality to last a lifetime.

Dull Blades and Design Didn't Work For Me or My Dog

This was a disaster for me and my dog.

Safari Mat Remover for Dog
Safari Mat Remover for Dog

Mine arrived with super dull blades. It did a great job of tangling up my dog's fur without cutting or removing any mats at all. We both hated it and with the dull blades, it was hopeless.

I had to return mine for refund.

My dog is 6 pound terrier chihuahua mixed mutt.

I have included his picture to show you it did not work on his type of fur.


At the urging of my dog, I used the refund to buy him toys.

Organizing the Marie Kondo Way


The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing  by Marie Kondo 
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing  by Marie Kondo

This young lady has turned organizing inside out and come up with methods that truly work. She is a celebrity in Japan and now her methods have gone worldwide.

So what's different about her methods? Well, you may have to read the book to find out but one major theory of hers is vastly different from the old style organization is sparking joy.

 Touch each item with your hand. Does it spark joy? Are you in love with it? Does it bring happiness? If not then thank the item for its past service, toss it out for donation or garbage. Move along to the next.

 Selected Quotes from  Marie Kondo

  I had a slight hope the phrase 'spark joy' might become popular, as it was the keyword that I wanted to put forward in the first place.

  Have gratitude for the things you're discarding. By giving gratitude, you're giving closure to the relationship with that object, and by doing so, it becomes a lot easier to let go.

To truly cherish the things that are important to you, you must first discard those that have outlived their purpose. And if you no longer need them, then that is neither wasteful nor shameful. Can you truthfully say that you treasure something buried so deeply in a cupboard or drawer that you have forgotten its existence?

The process of facing and selecting our possessions can be quite painful. It forces us to confront our imperfections and inadequacies and the foolish choices we made in the past.

A Versatile Handy Lamp Perfect For A Motorhome or Traveling RV

OCOOPA Clip on Desk Lamp,OCOOPA Touch Sensor Control Light 3 Dimmable Level Light Flexible Gooseneck LED Eye-caring Light Bedside Lights Desk Reading Working Lamp White



I just love it when a product comes out that is multi functional.

For over 7 years I have lived the tiny home lifestyle in a motorhome that offers less than 200 square feet of compact  living space. I am very busy with projects, typing, reading, crafts, cooking and so on.

This light is just SUPER handy. It clips to my tables, or to my window valances or to a book or catalog for reading. WHile it's designed for indoor use only, I take it outside all the time to sit on the patio and have light anywhere I want it.

This cute lamp sits on its own base when not being clipped somewhere.

The coolest thing about it being a clip on is that it is perfect for travelers in motorhomes and RV's. Everything must be attached or put away for driving. This rides quite happily clipped to a table or valance going down the road.

The goose neck is very flexible, you can aim it 360 degrees all around to anywhere. Especially handy if you have to repair something in a weird compartment on the motorhome, or anywhere, you can use it cord-free.

This lamp has a rechargeable battery installed.

It came with a white USB charging cord that works on 12 volt, 110 household adapter plug, or computer etc. The lighting is very soft and easy on the eyes, but also provides 3 different distinct settings from romantic ambiance to bright repair work.

I have included a picture of it hanging from a window valance.

Works In Cigarette Lighter Outlets

This works terrific in the car's or RV's cigarette lighter socket.It has blue lights on it, to show you it's on a live circuit and working.

However when I went to shove it into my other 12 volt outlets in my RV which are designed for low wattage and not the high wattage associated with the cigarette lighters, it would slide in, but not light up or work at all. We tried this on my RV and a friend's RV. I am unsure why it wouldn't work in those outlets. I've never run into this before and I have several of these from different companies.

That being said, it did work fine in the cigarette lighter for recharging the phone and keeping the MP3 player charged up.

A curious thing about the style is that it is black on the outside and white on the end. I guess that makes it super easy to locate on your dashboard. Personally I haven't seen a white dashboard in a month of Sundays.

All in all, it worked, the blue lights let you know it's on. The blue lights are a personal preference.  I don't like them, but others do.

Works Great With Small Flip Phone (And other phones too)


This is great for carrying around your little flip phone on your finger. Can flip open, make calls and close again. No fear of dropping phone because it's on your finger.

Ring Stands with Hand Fidget Spinner Knob Portion Function for Smart Cellphone Mount


Can also be used to hang your phone up on a hook. A cool idea if you have busy desk and cluttered home, just hang the phone up on a hook where it can't be buried beneath papers or an other detritus.

As a phone stand, it works somewhat. The round ring means you can only prop up the phone in certain angles without it falling or rolling over. It has to prop up on a low angle, not very useful for my needs.

Now the fun part. There is a spinner in back with some sort of four seasons' photo.. The spinner is fun to play with if you are waiting on a call and no one is calling. You just dial the wheel and the spinner spins. I think a graphical picture with stripes or a spiral would have been more dramatic to look at when it spins. The picture stuck in there now doesn't really do it for me.

Alternatively this ring is great for attaching it to a lanyard for  hanging your flip phone around your neck.

Super Warm, Good Looking and Very Cozy!


Fakeface Women Winter Warm Knitted Fingerless Faux Fur Arm Long/Wrist/Short Gloves Mitten



Absolutely love these!

Well made and SUPER warm.

I wore mine above the thumb at wrist level because the fur is so thick. I wanted to stay warm while riding my bicycle outside. The cold air was shooting up my sleeves something awful until I bought this pair with the faux fur.

The fur is thick and snug around my wrists. Shoving the rest of the glove up my arm to my elbow ensured my arms stayed super warm and no cold air was able to blow up my sleeves while I rode my bicycle out doors in cooler weather.

They complimented my outfits, I got so many comments on them. I have included a picture.

Many of my shirts have mid-length sleeves because I live in Florida and yes we get cold weather, especially when air is blowing right at me from riding my bicycle. So this literally fills the gap. Also wore them underneath long sleeve sweaters just to have that extra warmth.

Now it is hot again and I can't wear them, but I look forward to cool weather again just so I can have some fun with these again.

I washed mine and hang dried (no dryer) and they were fine.

She Pours Her Heart and Soul Into This Classic One Hit Wonder

You Light Up My Life by Debby Boone

You Light Up My Life by Debby Boone


A classic one hit wonder that is well worth having in an eclectic  music collection.

Great for weddings and receptions.

Add it to your love tunes to play with someone special with the lights out.

You Light Up My Life by Debby Boone Lyrics

So many nights I'd sit by my window
Waiting for someone to sing me his song
So many dreams I kept deep inside me
Alone in the dark but now you've come along

And you light up my life
You give me hope to carry on
You light up my days and fill my nights with song

Rollin' at sea, adrift on the water
Could it be finally I'm turnin' for home?
Finally a chance to say "Hey, I love you"
Never again to be all alone

And you light up my life
You give me hope to carry on
You light up my days and fill my nights with song

'Cause you, you light up my life
You give me hope to carry on
You light up my days and fill my nights with song

It can't be wrong
When it feels so right
'Cause you.....you light up my life

Night Light with Bluetooth Speaker, SHAVA Jewel Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Touch Control Color LED Bedside Table Lamp, Speakerphone / MicroSD Card / AUX-In USB-In Supported (Acrylic Brown)


This came well packaged and protected with a booklet of easy to read instructions in decent sized print. Also included was a speaker cord and a USB cord.

I am impressed that it offers so many options besides Bluetooth. Much of my techie gadgets are older without Bluetooth and I enjoy using them. So I was able to plug my MP3 player with the included speaker wire and immediately start listening to music while being entertained by the light. What fun!

The volume buttons on the bottom of the light make it easy to adjust the sound level. I was pretty impressed with the audio quality. The lights have 4 different options. It was fun to switch them around and see what they could do. This light makes my pants want to get up and dance!

This light and speaker come with a host of options including a 20 minute sleep timer. It also has an option to put your tunes on a MicroSD card, plug it in and play from that. This would be awesome for meditation and stress reduction. Just compile soothing tunes onto a MicroSD card, then lay down, turn on the light and tunes then drift off into la-la land, using the light to empty out your brain of other thoughts and just focus on the mesmerizing lights while soothing music relaxes the soul. Drift off to sleep and the timer will turn it all off in 20 minutes. Pretty cool!

The rechargeable battery is supposed to last 7 hours which is pretty darn sturdy. I haven't used mine 7 hours in a row yet, but I spend a lot of time outdoors. The fact this is portable, makes it easy for me to take it outdoors to listen to tunes day or night then charge it up again.

5 Years Later Still Hurling Nasty Messages


5 years later, this parrot is still nasty and spitting forth variety of  insults and demands that are R and X rated.

In 2012  sent this as a gift to a sailor friend who can accidentally curse up a storm when working on boat projects that aren't going quite right. The parrot is motion-activated. I thought it would be funny when climbing aboard his boat to have the parrot yack it up for comedy.

I had no idea just how filthy mouthed this parrot was until recently my friend came to visit, bringing this parrot with him.It was the first time I had the heard the parrot for myself.

My ears turned red, my cheeks turned crimson.This is NOT for children and certainly not for  mild mannered gentle souls.

If you have snoopy adult friends, hide this in the bathroom cabinet. When they open the door, they will get an earful for sure!

Some folks will find this hilarious, others might be embarrassed just to be around it (I sure was!)

A Wooden Comb And Boar Bristle Brush Are Timeless Masterpieces For Your Beard, Hair and Fur


This wooden comb and boar bristle brush is perfect for taming my beard, fur and hair.

HOSALA - BEARD BRUSH COMB SET for Men, Natural Boar Bristle, Best for Grooming Facial Hair, Dry/Wet Mustache, Gift Box & Cotton Bag for Home & Travel


The set came in a beautiful heavy duty storage (or gift)box plus inside was a cotton draw string traveling bag for the brush and comb. The entire kit makes a treasured gift for the hairy people in your life.

HOSALA - BEARD BRUSH COMB SET

The wooden comb is exquisite. Wood is the perfect medium for a comb because it doesn't snap and break hair like plastic does. Wood naturally transfers sebum evenly from the skin and scalp throughout the hair making it look far more  luxurious than is possible with plastic combs. Wood does not create static electricity in the beard or hair.

That being said, a wooden comb requires special care. If you must wash it, do so quickly and immediately dry it with a microfiber towel. Do not submerge in water to soak. In most cases, you shouldn't need to wash your wooden comb. U usually you can just remove any loose hair then polish it up with a microfiber towel.

As a wooden comb ages, it may need sprucing up. Just coat it with mineral oil, wait 24 hours for it to soak in, then wipe off any excess. Your comb will look brand new again ready to be the next heirloom.

HOSALA - BEARD BRUSH COMB SET


The brush made of boar bristles is the time honored best for similar reasons. Boar bristles naturally transfer oily sebum throughout the hair coating each hair strand with a very, very small amount of sebum.  A boar bristle brush repairs dry hair and adds lustrous shine.

Avoid boar bristle brushing wet hair because this can cause breakage and even more tangles.

Gently detangle hair first preferably with a large gapped wooden comb. When detangling wet or dry hair, start with the ends and gently work your way up towards the roots, detangling in small batches. Yes, I did say start with the ends, not the roots for the best gentle detangling that doesn't break hair (or will break the least amount of hair.)

A boar bristle brush will not detangle and will actually create more tangles if you start with tousled hair or a mess of  wet locks.

Brush dry detangled hair from root to tip. This will distribute the sebum evenly and creates shiny hair. With a boar bristle brush, the more you brush, the nicer your hair and beard will look. For these reasons, you will find you do not need to shampoo your beard or hair that often. Let your natural oils do their magic accompanied with a wooden comb and boar bristle brush.

Well Made with Easy To Read Manual, Comes Complete with Battery and Storage Box


I am an amateur, mostly interested in testing the state of my DC batteries for my RV motorhome and batteries used in products like AA, C, D etc.

Digital Multimeter, SURPEER True RMS 4 1/2 Voltmeter with Auto Range - Multi Meter Measuring DC AC Voltage/Current, Ohm/Resistance, Diode, Temperature, Continuity, Frequency, Electric Field Testing


This multimeter came complete with the probes and the 9volt battery to operate it. The meter is ready to operate, right out of the box. Reusable protective caps are on the female ends of the leads.

The manual is 15 pages long, in English with print large enough to read, not that teeny tiny impossible print. Troubleshooting and maintenance section also included.

I am impressed with the large digital readout. No magnifying glass needed for this. The meter is easy to hold. On the back is a keyhole type hook so you can hang this on a tool pegboard or anywhere you choose to hang it up, if you prefer that over storing it in the box. There is also an easel type door on the rear that can be used to prop the meter up on the table.

The entire product with probes and manual arrived in a sturdy box perfect for storing the meter between uses. Alternatively it hangs on the wall or pegboard. There are rubber sleeves on the rear to hold the probes between uses.

Fabulous Universal RV and Car Mount For GPS or Phones

This is a great universal mount for the dash of your car or RV.
Magnetic Phone Car Mount, BoYao Universal Stick On Dashboard Magnetic Car Mount Holder Cradle, for Cell Phones and Mini Tablets with Fast Swift-snap Technology(Black).

I have an older GPS that doesn't have its own bracket to hold it on the dashboard. I got this magnetic mount to see if it would solve my problem. It did! Beautifully too.

First I installed the metal plate on the back of the  GPS.
I cleaned the dashboard with plain rubbing alcohol in the areas I thought I might want to install the mount.

While that was drying  I played around with the base of the mount on the dashboard of my wheel estate until I got it in the perfect place that suits me.
Now I used the 3M included tape on the base of the mount to stick it to the dashboard.
Next I stuck the GPS on the magnet of the mount.
Then I adjusted the round knob in back that allows me to angle the GPS at the perfect viewing level.

The kit came with both a rectangle metal mount and a round metal mount.
The round mount included 3M tape already attached, just peel and stick.
The rectangle did not, but I had some double-sided Scotch outdoor mounting tape on hand, so I used that to attach the rectangle to my GPS. I wanted to use the rectangle in case while driving I needed to adjust the GPS for better viewing. I probably could have used the round mount just fine.

My kit arrived in a box labeled Magnetic Air Vent Mount, but it was for the dashboard, so open the box first before you assume you got the wrong product. Inside, mine was the correct product.

Must-Have For RV, Boat and Home


Furniture Pads: 162 Piece Variety Pack – Self Adhesive Felt Floor Protectors with Transparent Noise Bumpers
Furniture Pads: 162 Piece Variety Pack – Self Adhesive Felt Floor Protectors with Transparent Noise Bumpers

Every home, RV and sailboat needs this kit.

First off if you have cabinets that bang loudly when you try to close them, this kit has clear rubber or silicone tiny round bumpers that will silence your noisy cabinets. If you run out of those, just use some of the included round or square felt pieces.

On boats and RV's I use these felt pads to attach to the back of things I am attaching to walls and bulkheads so they ride there silently and not chafe or scrape the walls leaving an ugly mark when the RV or boat is moving. I have a big clock hung in my RV with these felt fads on back. I have pictures on the walls with these felt pieces on back. While driving the artwork may try to move and the felt keeps it riding silently as well as protecting the wall surface.

The legs on my table had metal on the bottom of them for carpet but when I switched to vinyl tile the metal legs were marking up the tiles. I stuck the round felt pads on the table legs solving that problem.

I hung a whimsical basket on the wall of my RV that holds many useful things but the back of the basket was curved and not flat. When I was driving the basket would swing a little left and right, and sometimes bang against the wall. But putting the big square felt pad on the rear of the basket, it now rides quietly and it can't mark or scar the wall.

In a regular sticks and brick house, these furniture pads are a must have if you have hardwood floors and furniture without the proper felt pads or if the old pads have worn out. Stick these on the bottom of chairs and other furniture and your furniture won't be able to ruin your floors.

If you have a good looking home and want to keep it that way, by all means you need these heavy duty felt pads. Also, if you don't like the way your cabinets or drawers bang shut, these pads will silence them as will the tiny round rubber bumpers.

This review is from: The BEST Broom For Everything Inside and Out, Perfect for a Motorhome, February 12, 2016

This review is from: Furemover Broom with Squeegee made from 100% Rubber, Multi-Surface and Pet Hair Removal,  Extends from 3 ft. to 6 ft. (Misc.)

I have been using this broom inside and outside my motorhome for 2 years now.

AWESOME!

Just today the hose broke on the washing machine. I used the squeegee part of the broom to rapidly sweep the water out of the motorhome and down the steps.

Typically I use this broom daily for tidying up. It sweeps across the vinyl floors and the rugs. Amazingly fur and hair cling to the broom. Just pull it off and dispose. The broom will be clean again. It sweeps across throw rugs which is awesome in the winter. I can shake out a rug outdoors to remove dirt, then sweep it and be astounded at what the broom picks up.

This thing will sweep up wet leaves across concrete. If the broom get dirty, it hoses off super easy and fast. The telescoping handle is perfect.

It makes it easier to store and you can adjust the length perfectly for each job for ultimate comfort. I use a large 9 by 12 foot patio mat at the campsite. This broom sweeps off everything from pine needles to wet leaves. Nothing snags up this sweeper.

Once you switch to a rubber broom you will wonder how on earth you ever got along without one.

I searched stores everywhere and ended up ordering mine off Amazon. I don't know why these aren't sold everywhere. No other broom can compare.

BEST Compact Washing Machine Ever Made


Haier HLP21N Pulsator 1-Cubic-Foot Portable Washer

Haier HLP21N Pulsator 1-Cubic-Foot Portable Washer RV Washing Machine


I have been using this washing machine for 5 years now and I LOVE IT!

compact washing machine


First of all I have been living and traveling in a very small motorhome. I installed this washer when I found out that I would often be far from laundry facilities. My storage is tight, so I can't own many clothes, but I love clean clothes. Add to that I have towels, sheets, pet bedding and rugs to wash. Yes I wash my throw rugs in this one at a time.

The hardest part is learning not to overload the washer and to use the correct amount of soap without using too much. In my case I use a Down ball softener to add plain white vinegar to the rinse load, This softens clothes and removes or reduces lint substantially. I don't like the stinky softeners, so that is why I use plain white vinegar.

When I need to wash something that is heavy when wet like bluejeans, I just wash them alone or with one other light item. THe beauty is you can do back to back loads in this machine until you are caught up on laundry.

In my case, I quick connect my washer to my bathroom sink. I can use hot, cold or warm water. I prefer to wash in cold. I have these big super thick luxurious towels that are bath sheet size and very heavy when soaking wet and they are screaming red. Anyhow, I have been able to wash these in my machine with a few small hand towels (do not overload!) and then hang them up to dry. They are thick and super soft when air dried.

I don't have a dryer, and I hang dry all my washing. Sometimes outside, sometimes inside, depending on the campground I am parked in and their rules towards drying laundry.

My dog sleeps in a small fluffy dog bed, well it's made for a cat, but we don't tell him that, and it gets that doggy smell after a few months. So I wash it all by itself in the washer, then dry it outdoors in the sunshine and his bed is fluffy and odorless again.

Several pairs of my shoes are made for washing and going outdoors including two pairs of boots I own, ankle boots and knee boots. Both have been washed in this washer and come out beautiful ready to air dry and look new again.

I love the three settings on the water level. While I mostly use the high setting, I have been in a hurry to clean just one item and it's oh so handy that it has that one item water level.

I do most all my motorhome cleaning inside and out with microfiber rags. I wash these together with nothing else, just the microfiber rags together and nothing else. This makes these cleaning cloths last and last and last forever it seems. I always have a stack of cleaning microfiber cloths for mopping the floor, wiping down the shower, washing the mirrors and windows. So this machine has saved me a bundle of money because I am not wasting silly paper towels all the time.

I love this machine!

Incredibly it has bounced down many highways and bumpy holey roads yet it keeps on washing and turning out nice clean laundry. If I could give you words of advice NEVER overload this machine. Break up your loads into small ones until you get familiar with how it works. If you wear a lot of "heavy" clothes like flannel shirts and bluejeans, then do SMALL loads so this heavy stuff will get clean without upsetting the washer.

If my motorhome were on fire, I would grab the washing machine and run outside with it.

Gourmet Delight Requiring No Refrigeration

Requires no refrigeration.

Perfect for on the go lifestyle of camping, travel, motorhome, RV's and any place you have tiny or no refrigeration but desire the luxury of Irish Creme in your coffee.

I ordered this as a birthday gift for my friend going camping in a van with a tiny fridge. This can be kept in the cupboard and requires no refrigeration yet the taste is awesome.

I forgot the read the fine print, this is 10 (yes ten!) pounds of creamer! Needless to say, ten pounds of creamer for a two week camping trip was a bit too much, but since he uses the stuff year round, it will get put to great use.

Alternatively, put some in the break room at work and watch the smiles on the coworkers as they get a little sip in their daily java.

For tiny home living with a gourmet twist, this fits the bill.

Excellent Backpack Not Just For Mothers and Babies, Perfect For Flying

This is an AWESOME backpack and it's not just for babies and mothers.

Wallaroo Diaper Bag Backpack with Stroller Straps, Wet Bag and Diaper Changing Pad - For Women and Men - BLACK - MEDIUM


It works terrific as a carryon bag with the airlines. It fits perfectly under the seat in front!

It also holds a ton of stuff in roomy pockets. Especially nice that it will hold a drink and a regular sized book in the outer pockets as wel as cell phone, wallet, glasses, keys, makeup, CPAP, toiletries, yes the CPAP fit in there too.

This is a pic of it packed for the airlines and it was a breeze to carry, wear on back and leave hands free. The fabric is super nice, it's very well stitched, no loose sewing, no loose threads, the zipper expertly installed.

This is a backpack for all occasions!

I gave it 5 stars because my friend used it for flying and LOVED it for its quality and versatility.

A Gigantic Sturdy Hammock For Serious Outdoor Fun

This has to be the most comfortable hammock ever made!
MalloMe XL Double Parachute Camping Hammock - Tree Portable with Max 1000 lbs Breaking Capacity - Lightweight Carabiners and Ropes Included For Backpacking, Camping, Hiking, Travel, Beach, Yard, 125" x 79"

I searched and researched all over Amazon and elsewhere in search of the perfect hammock that could travel, withstand rain, was washable and made for heavy duty use with generous sizing. This one fit the bill hands down like none other.

It seems all hammocks no matter the size are advertised as a double. But this doesn't mean you should put 2 in it! This one is so generous, you can lay down in it, then use the sides to fold up over you to keep out others. No kidding, you can fold up the sides to keep out bugs and bird poop. Yep. I was hit with bird poop, but it wiped right off of me and the hammock.

I sit in it sideways and swing it like a gigantic weightless rocker. Oh my gosh is that heaven on earth. I also stretch out in it and wonder if I will ever climb out again to visit mother earth. There is plenty of room to climb in with your favorite pillow. I like that the bag is sewed to the side of the hammock. I can tuck a book in it or my water flask or both. Mostly I don't need it for either because I am swinging away or snoozing.

The fabric seems very sturdy. The colors are ultra pleasing. The ropes that come with it are OK, if you like to play with knots all day and have perfectly spaced trees but I use mine with Hammock Straps (Set of 2), Sahara Sailor Hammock Tree Hanging Straps 1400+ LBS Heavy Duty Non-Stretch Suspension System Kit (12kN Aluminum Carabiners Set Included).

Hammock Straps (Set of 2), Sahara Sailor Hammock Tree Hanging Straps 1400+ LBS Heavy Duty Non-Stretch Suspension System Kit (12kN Aluminum Carabiners Set Included).


The MalloMe hammock came with carabiners and so did the straps I bought extra, so now I have extras in case I need them.

I wouldn't put two adults in this hammock, get them their own hammock. Yes, you can put two adults in it for some serious snuggling. Also very comfortable for parent and child or a baby laying on your belly.

Two adults or several children can sit in it sideways, with their feet hanging out like a chair and just swing back and forth. It feels awesome! While mine appears to be several feet off the ground, once I am in it, I am only about foot off the ground. I have short legs, so I need to be low so I can get out again. One way to get out if you are laying down, is to put one leg on one side and the other leg on the other side. Then reach forward with both arms and scoot up towards the end until you are able to stand up.

I've had my hammock out camping and I've got it set up now where I live. It is heavenly. I can happily waste hours in it. If you have a family, you may need to buy several of these!
