Sean,

A great shower that needs to be added to the store for those of us in the QS campers

I will second that. I have used one of these and was surprised by how well it works and how versatile it is. Especially in the high mountains and desert, it is hard to find a easy place to hang gravity fed water sources.

I love the no power options for their simplicity. I have a shower setup in the works that uses a 12v water pump but something like that where it can be used anywhere and anytime is great. Thats part of the reason I have been tempted to get something like this: http://amzn.to/1Umi2Fy
Its basically a dry bag (or in this case a wet bag) with molded in scrubbing nubs. You can then fill with small batches of clothes and wash away. Seems like a good way to extend a trip without bring more clothing.
However I'm cheap and I like to tinker so I think I have a diy solution for it. Years ago we received one of those As Seen On TV items [a href="http://www.amazon.com/As-Seen-On-TV-MS011112/dp/B004RHQ3E4/ref=pd_sim_121_1?ie=UTF8&dpID=51WbOptPZ2L&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR160%2C160_&refRID=0TNVXS04HWM5ABDKSQ2T"]Mr Steamy[/a] and it has just sat on a shelf since then. Well why not take that, or better yet one of [a href="http://www.amazon.com/Whitmor-6754-3655-Dryer-Balls-Set/dp/B007Y2TBI4/ref=pd_sim_121_3?ie=UTF8&dpID=518X7szDMWL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR160%2C160_&refRID=0TNVXS04HWM5ABDKSQ2T"]THESE[/a] and throw it in a traditional dry bag. Slosh it around and do some 'scrubbing' for while and it should do the same thing. Bam $20 bucks or less depending on what you may or may not have already and you're good to go :)

In looking at these items I was reminded the "old days" when my wife and i backpacked - smelly clothes didn't matter because, well you know.
The Scrubba Wash Bag is a good option, it bugs us to either have to bring a lot of extra clothes (which ties up space and most of which we end up not using) or to have to stop, find a laundry and dig around for enough change to do a good wash and dry.  Not sure about Mr Steamy though, wouldn't think that it would do much for cleaning clothes in a "wash" cycle.  Another use for the dryer balls?  They look as if they would be extremely useful as massage implements for sore backs, shoulders and feet.

Will have to give this some thought - may dig out the dry bags that we have stashed away and give the old fashioned washing machine a try.

[quote source="/post/21933/thread" author="@fasteddieb" timestamp="1465133600"]I have yet to encounter a 50A-only campsite, but we did pick up a similar pigtail converter when we picked up our 21BHS - kind of cheap insurance for that unlikely event, which you apparently stumbled across.[/quote]The 50 to 30 amp adapter came in handy for us when we went to hook up and found that the 30 amp breaker was bad.  Used the converter and hooked to the 50 amp circuit so we could get the A/C going until it was fixed.  Never needed it again though; but it is a nice to have.

I dont know if I just overlooked them earlier but I've added both the 50 > 30 amp adapter and the 30 > 15 amp adapter to the tools section of the store.
