You'll need it!
X2- I packed a digital VOM early on, almost as an after thought, but, it seems like I use it for something or lend it to a neighbor almost every trip out.

OMG....I am wondering if I should have just kept my lil' old pop up! I'm sure it's not as overwhelming as it seems to me right now, but geeeeezzzzeeee.....I can't keep up with the stuff I'm going to need! All these things may even be in the camper, as the owner is leaving EVERYTHING in it. We shall soon see, but I'm making a list, just in case!

Going on our second year with the lite and we just bought some new items for our outings this year.

You will be OK. Get the 50 to 30 amp adapter, good insurance to have just in case, as well as a 30 amp extension cord. As already mentioned I would guess the power pedestial at you site will be equipped with 50 amp service but also 30/15. The reservation just tells people that need 50 amp that it is there. As you RVing days continue you will end up having more adapters and thing am ma bobs and a dedicated rubbermaid container to put them all in.

These type testers are good but be careful, know their limitations, personally I would not use them on the 30A & 50A with adapters. We have had 3 similar ones (different brand) "blow up" on job sites. Luckily no injuries. If the outlet happens to have more than 110V no telling...... We stopped using them.

Better yet- after getting your new to you camper, make a list of everything that the owner left to you and post the list on the forum. We can alwAys give advice on how to spend your kids inheritance at Wally World and Amazon on stuff that looks cool and probably never use!

sewingcybermom, we've probably - no, definitely - have given you more ogeda than necessary. Fact of the matter, you can't plan and prepare for everything! If we try to do that, there's no fun and fodder for the campfire tales!

My Alma mater had a slogan that embodied the educational culture there and fit my way of learning and life. I think it applies here: Learn by DUing! Once you get it home, stock it up with basics (not forgetting power protection, water pressure regulator, black tank treatment, chocks, a level and some planks or equivalent to level) and begin your new adventures, learn and adapt while in the mix, and be a happy camper in your big upgrade from PUP life!

Enjoy!
