Love this idea.

I've found a plug in voltmeter indispensible for monitoring not only my load but, most importantly, what's available from the post in the CG. If you can't get 120 at the post in the heat of summer when everybody else is running AC you will run out of current quick

Man the list sure got long for a first time RVer and trip. I'd do a few trips with the essentials before I'd invest in all that has been listed. What happens you don't like to camp. Later RJD

Majority of the places we camp have no cell service. We don't use walkie-talkies either. I prefer visual contact with hand signals.

Have fun,

Good morning or day!

Since picking up the TT on Thursday, we have been enjoying the RV life! We have been meeting wonderful people and the staff here at park. Getting ready to start the load out and we will be heading down the highway! Thank you all for the great suggestions and tips. I'll post a more in-depth summation once we are home.
