If I have to use an extension cord to plug trailer in to power do I need some type waterproof cover for the cords connected ?

What kind of extension cord are we talking about here? I have a 50' RV 30A extension cord that I plug my trailer's cord into and is fairly waterproof, though I'll toss the connection under the trailer when I'm camped where it'll reach.

At home, I use a 12' construction grade 15A cord (10AWG for those who ask) to stretch the extra distance I need and then go from there to my 15-30 adapter and on to the trailer. But that cord is entirely housed in my garage. I only use it because my trailer plug is about 10' short of reaching the back wall of my garage where the receptacle is and pulling out the whole 50' is a pain for such a short distance when I'm restricted to 15A anyways. I wouldn't put that connection outside as I don't think it's as waterproof.

Not really sure how to answer. It's a 30amp extension cord from an RV supply store. Seems pretty good quality

Ok, so those generally get a pretty tight seal. Shouldn't have to worry about it.

Does anyone know of a good bunk bed ladder? I'm thinking something that folds away for storage and we just get out at bedtime. Would be much easier on the toddlers.

Can't help there. Mine came with a ladder, but we haven't really used it yet. When we do start using it I'll probably do like my brother in law and attach a couple of hooks to the top to help stabilize it a bit better.

we bought a two step stool that folds flat. its a metal one from walmart and was around $10. it filds flat enough to store between the bed and the bench for the dinette, it also doubles as a seat for the table. its tall enough to not get in the way when its open

They are however including all the manuals, hoses, hitch and sway bars, propane tank filled, battery, and a trailer cover.
Can anyone offer suggestions on items I need as well as knowledge for use?

Thanks in advance!
Congrats on the new-to-you Cruise LIte 195BH! This seems to be a pretty popular model.

My suggestion would be to keep things simple at first and just enjoy your RV. RVers tend to be pretty friendly and willing to help another RVer out especially new owners so don't be afraid to ask another campsite neighbor.

Good luck and have fun!

Looking through the manual there are instructions for gas water heater and electric. Stupid question, but which do I have? It gives instructions for turning on electric and instructions for gas?
