Spring will soon be knocking on your entry door, and all those that have holed up waiting for the big thaw (what Alaskans call "breakup"), will start emerging, eyes squinting at the bright light, from their winter burrows, and a host of weird but inventive products will start to hit the market. What else do creative people do in the winter to while away all those idle hours but invent crazy products.

What do winter and wind have in common? I'm sure you could make a list, but what comes first to mind is awning. If you've camped in winter, as snowbirds do in the Southwestern deserts, you know that the wind can come up at any time, distorting your awning support arms and blowing the awning up over the roof, possibly tearing the canvas as well. Not a pretty sight.

Cleaning the black water tank is never what could be described as a fun chore. But Valterra has at least made the job easier with it's No-Fuss Flush, which attaches permanently to the outside of your rig.
No longer will you have to drag a dirty hose through your door and across your carpeting or through a window (that will undoubtedly have a screen to work around).

Think of how many times in your RV travels that you wanted to wash out just a few things and it wasn't worth a trip to the laundromat. Your only choice seemed to be washing them out in the sink or a bucket. But the Scrubba Wash bag is an easier solution.

You've likely seen vehicle cameras or recorders on a majority of vehicles driven by Russians. It seems that Russian drivers are not only prone to accidents, but also are lawsuit happy about suing other drivers involved in auto accidents - of which there are many - in hopes of large monetary settlements. The cameras are used as evidence of who was at fault.
