We can't have anything that has to be drilled....Hubs is a computer programmer...doesn't have any handy skills and I'm only slightly better.

The paper towel holder is two screws...I didn't drill; marked with pencil and poked pilot holes with an awl. Went into cabinet under the TV (they give you nice short screws). My DH is a computer dude, too, but we used to have a cabin and both picked up some basics out of self-defense. Still, there's lots of adhesive-type add-ons to choose from, and the Duck brand silly-putty type adhesive works well, too. Good luck!

I feel like we need so many things and most of them I don't know what they are or what to do with them or even why I need them Starting to feel like I picked the wrong major in college

Hi Rednose83. As you can see, the list of items is almost endless. You can get a whole assortment of items at WalMart. I opted for the 50A extension cable with my gift certificate because a 50A was not available at WM.
Probably the best option is to make a list and go from there.
Regards, Al

I too was given a modest amount to spend. I opted to "buy" a set of insect screens for all the appliance vents. Mud daubers and other insects are attracted to those holes and buying at the dealer insures they have the sizes needed for the brand.

We ended up buying a water filter and hose.

Use it on vent covers and bug guard screens to protect your fridge, furnace and water heater vents from things like mud daubers. A surge protector is a must, get a portable one and use a padlock on the electric box to protect it. No drilling or handy work needed. Use Wal-Mart or Amazon or other online sources to get things like server hose (get rhino brand), clear sewer elbow, fresh water hose, chocks (get these before your trailer comes home) , levelers (i.e. lynx levelers or Anderson levelers) and water pressure regulator (really cheap at Wal-Mart).

As for not being handy, it is time to learn. My DH is not handy either but he is learning, a little say time. Also, don't waste your money on rv toilet paper, any septic safe toilet paper is fine. Angel soft works very well. Don't waste your money on toilet chemicals either. Just use a good black tank manage program like the geo method.

We just bought odds and ends. Made sure the bill was as close to $25 as possible. (Gift card amount.)
