At my age, I not only forget where I put something, but my son also has a tendency to take my tools and not put them back.

  2. Progressive Electrical Management System (yes, I know this is expensive; repairing your rigs electrical system or A/C is more expensive though!)
  3. Camco Rhinoflex sewer hose with 45 deg connector (if the dealer offers a cheapop sewer hose ask if you can swap it for a water pressure regulator & dringing water hose)
  4. BAL X-Chocks
  5. Anderson leveling system
all the above can be bought @ amazon (and amazon has the best prices - especially if you are a Prime member )

That should get you started - be aware that moding your rig can become a addiction overnight

Search the forums for black tank cleaning and maintenance. Use the toilet paper that you like & follow the maintenance tips and you should have no problems.

Ditto on 1-5 suggestions. On a real snug budget 1-3 for sure but it will only be a matter of time before you end with the remaining 2 items.

Believe me #4 works great.

I ordered #5 hoping I never have to use them.

I did it! I brought the 5' folding laddder. Will it fit into the 4x4 fence post thingy? Or will I need the 5x5?
I would like to stay with the 4x4 because I would like to U bolt it on top of the back bumper. And the back bumper is 4x4.

Sheri,

Put it in your 4x4 bumper and make the 5x5 fencepost MOD for your sewer.

P.S. You will have room in your bumper for a few other things like OC's Ladder Mounted drying rack
