I second just about everything on the list. Chances are the sewer hose you will get will be junk. Get a Rhino. I have one and it is like new after three year of pretty regular use.

I also highly recommend a weight distribution hitch be bought and installed. This will make you tow much smoother and put far less strain in your tow vehicle (TV).

Also cut a few 12-18 inch 2X(6, 8, or 10). This will help if your site is not level and you need to compensate for your stabilizers that may not be long enough to hit the ground.

Best of luck with the new TT and post some pics of the first trip out.

No lynx levelers go under the trailer wheels to help level the trailer from side to side on an uneven site.

No they are to level the trailer, I think yours is a single axle is it not?
The blocks are lighter than wood and can be used under your stabilizer jacks.

For the waste hose.

Basic hand tools will be helpful if things are not going as planned.

Surge protector might not be enough. Consider an electrical management system. Most people here prefer the Progressive. 30 or 50 amp depend on your unit. Portable or built-in depends on your electrical skills. You NEED to protect your investment, even the best insurance might not cover your losses from reverse polarity, high/low surges, missing grounds, etc. yes, I am trying to scare you, but the effects of no protection are not pretty.
Like others have said, Walmart and Amazon Prime are your friends. Camping World is good for ideas, but most things can be purchased for much less elsewhere.
Some people like the foldable pens for their pets, others just keep them on a leash. If you haven't, make an appt with your vet, get your animals microchipped, and get a copy of their shot records to carry with you.
Remember, everything adds weight, so don't think you need everything your first trip. You will develop your own camping style in time, so go slow, separate the needs from the wants, keep an open mind, smile, laugh at yourself, and enjoy it all.
