I get that and we don't bother with them either.
My dad - must be about 30 years ago - got one of the first (low power) battery drills and had a rod welded onto a socket for winding his steadies. Miles ahead of his time and used to love helping out others.
I inherited this tool and (once) tried it with a modern 18v makita, far too fierce IMO.
PS my wife does the winding - she's not got a clue about emptying the loo though and I know what job I'd prefer.
I bet you said that about power steering as well. I got my first cordless drill to wind down the steadies for convenience. Now, I need one because in the storage pitch the back ok of the van is so close to the fence I can’t use a hand winder. I did have a 14.4v drill from Alde I swapped this for a 20 v li on one from Alde its too powerful heavier much preferred the old drill.
There is the swanage railway which has steam specials and i believe the flying scotsman will be visiting

We own a Suncamp Deluxe 390 which is a great air awning when up. Not as easy as some as more pump up points but not bad either.
The two biggest issues with it are
1) Snagging on awning rail on the new tamar as its an entry point didn't used to be as bad on older van with point at bottom of van
2) The amount of time putting pegs in. Often don't put all in to save time.
I want to use it more for weekends to give extra storage but it's a good hour job to put up. I have three kids so need to try and reduce setup time when just away for a weekend.
