I’ve mentioned a number of products over the last few months and I thought I’d bring you up to date with my thoughts.

When I was having water pressure problems while we were staying at the Bend-Sunriver Thousand Trails, the park said the water pressure was fine at about 40#, but I didn’t think it was that high so I bought this Water Pressure Test Gauge to prove them wrong. It’s easy to use and wasn’t very expensive.Water Pressure Gauge


The Oxygenics PowerMassage Handheld Shower Spray is one of the best purchases we’ve made in a long time. It gives a much better shower spray than our old Shower Massage and uses a lot less water. And this helps in two ways: Our hot water lasts a lot longer, and maybe more importantly, when we’re boondocking, or parked at a park without a sewer connection, we can go a lot longer between grey water dumps. Well Recommended.

Next up is Jan’s favorite. This USB LED Flexible Work Light makes it a lot to see the computer keyboard at night or in other low-light situations without having to turn on the big overhead light.

These Pacific Dualies 7" Braided Stainless Steel Valve Stem Extensions are the first ones I’ve ever bought that lasted more than a couple of months before they start leaking. But these just seem to keep on working without any problems. Plus, being flexible, they don’t rub holes in the caps of my TireTraker tire pressure sensors. A real winner.

I use this High-Water Flow Dual Outlet Kink-Free Flex Hose Adapter every time I hook up the water to our coach. Most people don’t realize that the average hose splitter really cuts down on the water pressure and water flow to your coach. But this one is high-flow and works great. Using the splitter makes it easy to hook up a second hose for rig/toad washing, or even the pressure gauge above.

This Escapade is starting to wind down with today being the end of vendor sales, although there will be more seminars tomorrow. Then everything wraps up starting at 5:30 with the closing ceremonies, the final prize drawings, and then a catered dinner from The Chop House, a local restaurant.

Then everything finishes up with a fireworks show starting at 9:30.

As far as today, about 12:15 Jan and I headed over to the Cam-Plex for the afternoon. Jan wanted to meet up with Terry Russell to check out the Craft Market, an area where RV’ers are showing and selling their crafts.

While this was going on, I helped out Nick for a while in the Gypsy Journal booth and then took a last pass around the vendor area. Finally I stopped off at the C & C Marketing and Insurance booth to meet up with Chris Yust. Before we go our separate ways, I wanted to sign Jan and I up for Good Sam’s new TravelAssist.

TravelAssist is an Emergency Medical Assistance plan. If one of us gets sick, or worse, it takes care of getting everyone back to your homebase, in addition to your rig, toad, minor children, and assistance with your pets. For more information, you can contact Chris Yust at 936-425-5041, or

Check it out.

A little later, Jan and I headed back to the rig for a while, until about 5:30 when we headed out with Nick and Terry to have dinner at the China Wall Chinese Restaurant, the place we tried to eat at this past Sunday, but found them closed. Everyone seemed to like what they had, and even the Hot & Sour Soup was really good. A good meal.

Finishing up with dinner, we drove across the street to the Wal-Mart, where I picked up a prescription for Jan, and Terry got a few groceries.

That pretty much wrapped up the day.


Thought for the Day:

Cherish, therefore, the spirit of our people, and keep alive their attention. If once they become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress and Assemblies, judges and governors, shall all become wolves. It seems to be the law of our general nature." – Thomas Jefferson (Letter to Edward Carrington January 16, 1787)
