My Camping World Wish List for 2014

This post will be an ongoing list of items I'd like to get from Camping World. I'll try to provide some details as to why I want/need it and why I chose each particular item. We'll call it a pre-purchase review of each. Then after I get them, I'll provide a more in depth review.

1. Camco Evo Premium Water filter
In the past I've used the small Camco water filters. The cheap ones from Walmart. I might end up going back to those in the end. But I think this season I'm going to try out one of these:

I am a little nervous about having a $50 filter hanging out behind the camper. How often are these things stolen? I guess we'll find out.

2. Camco Stack Jack
I've read that adding a pair of cheap stack jacks to a travel trailer with slide-out like ours will greatly reduce the movement when people walk around in it. I don't feel like we are wobbly at all, but I've heard that after you add a couple of small jacks under the frame on either side of the tires, it will feel like you are on blocks. So it looks like Walmart has a set of 4 of these jacks for about $35, but I don't know if they are the exact same model as these from Camping World. I assume that Walmart has s slightly different model number, and is a little lower quality. I could be wrong.

3. Portable Surge Guard Protector
I'm having a hard time deciding what sort of surge protection we need. There are two different types of protectors. There are $300 units that have a pretty LCD screen, and there are the $100 units that do not.

The LCD unit is:

Manufacturer: Technology Research Corp
Mfg Part #: 34730-001-LCD

The non-LCD unit is:

Manufacturer: Technology Research Corp
Mfg Part #: 44260

This is the one I'm most interested in:

4. Outdoor Universal Ladder
Our camper doesn't have a ladder on the back for getting to the roof. So I'd like to add this Universal Outdoor Ladder.
