Should not need the "converter". Your rig will already have one...standard equipment. Converts the electric from 110 to 12 volt.
Posssibly you might mean an inverter. Inverter converts 12 volt to 110 so you can run appliances like ac, microwave, ect. Needed if you have a solar setup.
Unless you plan on dry camping or boondocking, you won't need one right away. If your stays will be at campgrounds with electricity, your factory converter is all you need.

I meant converter plug .... For plugging into shore power at home to charge batteries and such.

FW hose tip: buy two 25' hoses instead of a 50 footer.

Makes putting it out and away easier IMO.

Tire Pressure gauge
Also, make sure you have necessary tools to change a tire, such as a 4 way lug wrench etc. (or have a roadside assistance plan)
Bottle of Clorox cleaner - To spray and de-contaminate hose bib before hooking up your fresh water supply hose. You never know what the previous camper hooked up to that hose bib.
As previously posted by another forum member, you'll need some way to store your water hoses and supplies and your stinky slinky. You'll need separate storage bins for those.
Tool bag with assorted hand tools
