I am going to try the induction cooktop I already have. It uses 1800w, so hopefully I can get an inverter that will handle it. The benefits are it heats faster, and the cooktop itself barely gets warm. Not as big a chance for burns and fires. It is magic. Lol

NewEgg.com usually has one with a nice big pan for about $50. That’s where I got mine.

I gave in and purchased the boot caddy from TA. It was something like 23 dollars but well worth it. Works great and actually looks kinda sharp on the bottom step.

Mike D., that steering wheel laptop holder/food tray looks like it would be really handy. My only concern would be spilling my food and drink on my lap while turning....

I have to agree with Michael B.! rofl-1.gif , rofl-2.gif , rofl-3.gif

But could come in very handy when parked, and planning your trips and stuff.

I like the price and the ingenuity of such a simple device for keeping the truck clean.

Electric blanket.

My first truck had all kinds of issues; not the least of which the heater worked when it felt like it.

I am a professional cook. Retired, I recently purchased my first convection cook top. It runs on 1500, inverter compliant. Micos are great, but lack in the ability of cooking a lot of non prepackaged, Staples. The countertop takes up only 12 inch footprint. You must have a stainless steel pan. You can cook anything, that you can on a conventional cooktop, The convection heats up in seconds compared to traditional. There's also a smaller micro, you can buy on line from Finger Hut, It has a cooktop on the top for frying, and a side coffee pot. Just mentioning for those who didn't know. The convection through is fantastic.

Thank you Ernie, Michael, and Mike. I am definitely planning on cooking on my truck, it’s cheaper and healthier. I wouldn’t have thought of a brush on the step either. Great idea!

Michael, good luck on your upgrade.
