Trash can & bags

Grab a pile of garbage can liners from home, fold them up neatly and put them in the bottom of your trash can, below the currently used liner. That way they're always there when you need 'em.

Our upcoming 17B will be our first camper, so we have never had to think about stocking one before.

The only things that we have already bought are a Magma cookware set, an Andersen leveler and a toaster oven. Plus we already have a Coleman cook stove from our tent camping days. And we are also getting the starter kit from Escape.

So what else should be on our shopping list? Thanks for any and all suggestions.

Alf, I'm working on a deal with Jim Bennett right now, if it works out as expected, I'll gladly send some of the money your way.

After you settle on the chairs, you'll need some beer, wine, and a good book. Let us know when the beer arrives, we'll stop over and help you drink it.

these are cool. fold up small and quite comfy.

we recently spent 7 months living on-board and found that a good stereo that connects (wireless) to the TV for movies, a good outside carpet, a T fitting for the hose so along with a short hose works for washing feet etc. and a good outside grill with a griddle are things that were super useful to have.

If you have an iPhone or such, you can download music from your iTunes and connect to a wireless speaker by Bluetooth.
Compact, simple solution.
I currently have a redundant iPod Classic ( doesn't have Bluetooth ) and a redundant iPod dock ( no Bluetooth ). All replaced by my iPhone and a JBL speaker ( there are better rated ones ).

Good source for research into techy stuff is The Wirecutter:

we have a "complicated'' Pioneer. Not recommended. Sony makes simple to operate stereos. Anyway with Windows 10 we can play a movie on the laptop, run it into a TV screen and the stereo picks up the audio. It has a tiny lag so the mouth movement and audio is off a bit BUT it sounds great thru the 4 speakers. I am going to search and see if the lag can be eliminated. I doubt it. oilwell.......

Regarding the Escape stereo option: I bought a better quality stereo unit to be able to get weather reports when we boon dock and fish, plus for its blue tooth capability, so we could port the music from our iPhone to the stereo. We liked the idea of nice sounding built in speakers rather than small portable blue tooth ones to pack separately. Anyhow, after buying it and discussing installation of the speakers, antenna and custom stereo I learned from Tammy that the cost would be much more than I had anticipated, perhaps because it was custom and required more time to do the install. She also told me that they were going to a new stereo that had blue tooth. We decided to go with their new standard stereo with blue tooth. Apparently it wasn't quite a standard install when we picked up our Escape 21 in May 2015 (using up the old stock), but because Tammy thought it was I was able to bring it back and change out the old stereo model for a new Boss. The Boss is only about $70 retail, but seems to work fine for us. I don't know if they are still installing this stereo, but they seemed to be switching to it in June 2015. The Boss can play DVDs and output them to a TV, but I wasn't able to try this feature as we don't have TV in the Escape. I thought you may want to check into the cost of installation if you provide your own stereo.

Yeti cooler - big enough for all the beer you are going to drink! Really, the Yeti keeps ice for a longer time than most other coolers. Love it.
