According to product literature, the Gas Grill Oven Plate from Grill Innovations makes it possible to bake outdoors on a gas grill.
The lightweight, all-aluminum plate is specially designed to create a convection effect inside the grill, and a 1-inch air gap in the center of the plate provides insulation to prevent food in the bottom of the dish from burning. This allows users to bake cookies, pies, cakes, or anything else you would bake in an oven. The plate measures 16 inches long, 12 inches wide, and 1 inch high and also can be used inside a regular oven to create a convection effect.
The Gas Grill Oven Plate has a suggested retail price of $69.99.

Sewer Hose System
According to representatives from Practical Products, the Flow Down Ultimate Hose Handling System is a new concept in RV sewer hose support.
The system extends to 10 feet 6 inches and sets up straight, around corners, or over objects. It can be adjusted to nearly any slope and stores in a compact carry bag when not in use. Many RV parks require that the sewer hose remain off the ground and have adequate slope to drain the sewage, but because of varying heights and locations of the sewer connections, this can be problematic. The Flow Down addresses these issues.
The Flow Down system has a suggested retail price of $79.95.
