I bought a 25rr a month ago from outpost RV. Very good experience buying from them.

This past weekend was our first camping trip with full hookups. I chose not to buy the starter kit and just get what I needed at Walmart. If your 19rr comes with a cylinder at the back that holds your sewer hose, make sure you buy a hose that will fit inside it. The end pieces are to BIG. I guess TT equipment isn't always standard sized.

We are still piecing together what we need inside.

FYI. My TT came with a 25' 30 amp power cord. I didn't expect that.

Not trying to start the t-paper debate again but Walmart sells a 4 pack by Camco that is for RV & Marine use that is pretty good if you are going that route.

Also add a freezer/fridge thermometer to the list. Besides the stick-on levels you could use a hand held level too. The stick-on levels don't always stay in place - more so during hotter months.

When we picked up ours last Thursday, Family RV in Pomona, supplied the starter kit for our RV, it came with standard sewer hose, fresh water hose, plug adapter and a small bottle of chemical. We stayed one night out there at KOA campground, did not use our toilet, as we didn't have everything we needed to treat black tank, but used the grey tank.

I found a website that has an extensive check list for RV camping, here is the link:

We will be putting our 850lb ATV in the back and the position of the ATV will make a difference on the tongue weight. My max tongue weight is 720lbs and I don't want to exceed that and would rather keep it at about 12 - 13% of gross trailer weight. We will be using a Reese Straight Line hitch.

Didn't know that Fridge bars existed. Great idea. I already have the wheel chocks. Thanks.

My 19RR came with the "Level-up" electronic indicators on it, so no need for the stick on levels. They seem to get it pretty close. You may check and see if your 19RR has them on it. Personally I would get one package of the Lynx leveling blocks as well. 2 packages is better.

I think Forest River quit offering the Level Up indicators. I am buying a set of the leveling blocks from Etrailer.

You can remove the bars from the clip to use when you just need a single row bar.
