Hi,
This is not exactly a gadget but sort of

Have tried quite a few of the apps to find camp spots, but on this last trip up north have found Google maps to be the most useful.
Just enter a location or a route, then in search, enter campgrounds.
Brings up map with icons at campgrounds - tap icon to get details, reviews and photos.
We also like to check fishing access sites, which often have camping - g maps will also find these.
I'm probably the only person who does not already know this, but thought I'd pass it on anyway.

Just picked up the Armor-all 12v cig light vacuum from Walmart. Wow, not bad for $25 at all.

Just ordered. An espresso maker that measures 4"x3" and reportedly pulls really good shots. Of course I only got it because I also got a good hand grinder. I gotta stop spending money lol.

Now we'll have the choice between moka pot, french press, pour over, or espresso. Is that overdoing it?
I should probably focus on more "pressing" stuff like a freaking mirror...

Not a gadget but a way to keep me from buying gadgets....

Coffee bags. Sort of like tea bags but coffee. Now I don't need a grinder or a french press in the van. Just my electric kettle and a jar.

Also, discovered recently a grillet. It is like a grill and electric skillet combined. I'm going to order one and see how it goes. It is deep enough for soups as well. It may eliminate the need for all pots and pans and a separate induction/cook surface. I still have my backpacking stove for when I'm boondocking.

On my current trip with my interim build I am using rechargeable magnetic led lights. They last about a week before needing recharging. And using a rechargeable water faucet for my kitchen. Everything is going great so far.

Could you give us a link to your lights?

Here you go. I didn't read the directions that they came with but I am guessing there is a way to turn off the motion activated function. I imagine I will figure it out eventually!

I love good water. Our PM is a non pressurized system, using a footpump. We hate plastic bottles. So we found the 24 oz Grayl Geopress and love it. I would drink water from Flint Mich with it. We got some really bad water during our 12 week cross country trip and the filter cleaned it up each time. Geopress water filter

Anyone have a cast iron baking sheet sized to fit an RV oven? My wife ordered one that said it was 15.5" but in fact it is 19". Apparently pan manufacturers don't list overall dimensions. A quick Google search turns up nothing except one 11x11 from world market. Might be nice to fill more of the 14x16.5 oven

Hi,
This is more of a good deal than a gadget, but something all of us use...

The sale price is $24 just in case the sale ends and it goes back up.

Project Farmer rated these impact bits and Milwaukee basically came out on top - so, good quality.

. . . a good deal . . .
I think this 270 piece socket set for $99 is a pretty good deal. Lifetime warranty, whatever that means. Not exactly Snap-On, but I'm not exactly a professional mechanic:

Bought this griddle for pancakes, grilled cheese, etc. before this summer's trips. Amazed at how good it is for $12!

Works beautifully with my butane stove, but not for an induction cooktop. It's aluminum which doesn't do much for induction cooking.

I'm impressed at how well the heat is distributed! Pancakes are the same golden brown no matter where they are cooking (usually cook about 4 burger size pancakes at a time). The butane stove a has a small burner, but the heat is very even... non-stick is amazing, I just wipe it clean with a paper towel. Works well for eggs, burgers too... it my go-to pan now!
