Thanks for both tips, I put them in my camping tips file.

Bill K

I found a large coffee can the size of a TP roll and carry it to the toilet area in case the TP there has run out -- The can with plastic lid keeps the TP dry if it is raining a little (If it's raining a lot, and chilly, then I use the portly-potty, but I avoid that whenever possible as I am lazy and wish to avoid emptying it!).

BTW, if you have a bathroom and TP on a roll, squeeze the TP before putting it on the roller gizmo -- It is less likely to unroll on the road if it isn't round.

My item would be the $1.00 French Coffee Press from the church rummage sale, the $.50 tea kettle from the same sale, and a pound of Pierce Brother's Fogbuster coffe. Okay, that's $10.25, but pretty close.

My vote would be a pair of yellow plastic wheel chocks. And, the free check list to remind me to place the chocks before I unhitch. At least I didn't have the safety chains off yet (they saved the day). "But honey, it didn't look like much of a slope..."

A couple of little LED flashlights from Home Depot or Harbor Freight (I've found them at both stores) velcroed to the walls. Great pocket size. $6 lantern style flashlight from Wally World... can be set up on the table for "mood light" on lower setting, or carried to the bathroom at the cg. For some of the unlit bathrooms with lantern hooks, it's nice to have the handle....
