The Awning Hanger/Stop from Fasteners Unlimited simplifies the process of hanging lights or other accessories from the awning channel.
The Hanger/Stop can be inserted anywhere in the awning channel. Just twist the device to the right and it locks into the channel. The design eliminates the process of sliding a hanger down the length of the channel, and since the hanger locks in place, wind will not affect its position. When it’s time to break camp, unlock the hanger with a twist to the left. Each hanger can support up to 5 pounds. Hanger/Stops are available for Carefree of Colorado, Girard, and A&E Dometic awnings.
A package of five Hanger/Stops has a suggested retail price of $9.12.

Build a warm, long-lasting campfire this fall with Irish Peat from Killofin Home Irish Products.
Irish Peat is an all-natural fuel produced from Irish bog lands, where layers of leaves, herbs, and roots have slowly decayed for thousands of years. When the peat is harvested, it is compressed to remove most of the water and air and create a peat brick, which is similar to a wood log. According to product literature, peat burns hotter, cleaner, and longer than wood, plus it can be transported anywhere, unlike real wood, which cannot be brought into some campgrounds and parks.
A 15-pound box of loose peat has a suggested retail price of $32.99, while a 15-pound box of bundled peat is priced at $34.99.
