Can't live without this!

What are some things that you just can't live without while camping in your trailers? Our trailer is being delivered ahead of schedule this evening and I'm a bit nervous and excited all at once! I am looking forward to going through all my camping stuff I had while I was in my pop up and getting rid of what we wouldn't use in our Roo. Then I'm going to be making a list of things we would really need and start buying those things. I look forward to hearing from each of you that have been camping a while! Thank you so much for your help!

...as you already know...you never finish. My wife's oldest son said "All you ever get is stuff for the trailer". I guess he is right.

Surge protector, roof vent covers, tandem wheel chocks, water pressure regulator, good quality black/grey water drain hose, others will chime in with more.

Coffee in the morning to watch the sun rise.

One of these in a power drill to lower the stab jacks.

A good gravity chair to relax in.

First thing is to look at the bunk seals. Does the side and the top seals meet together? When I got mine there was a gap. I sealed it myself.

We just got back from our first trip in our 2015 ROO 21SS. Went out for four days. no problems,just a few adjustments that the dealer took care of, other than that we had a great time. The power awning with the LED lights is what I liked. We got the package with the TV and Grill, being able to take the TV outside, BBQ and watch football is great..
In our camping career we have had four PUPS' (one with AC) a 29' Jayco Feather Light and a 29' Class C.... This ROO is the best of the bunch. Towing with a 2014 Fird F-150 SuperCrew 4X4. Can't even tell that I am towing anything with that truck....Great setup..
The top cover that extends with the slide to keep branches and leaves off the slide, well it rained and quit a bit of water collected on the cover, is there anything I can put under the cover to keep the water from collecting up there?
Does everyone store the sewer pipe in the rear bumper? Not sure if that is a great idea. Won't the bumper rust out from the inside in time?

Optional items: a 45 degrees hose connector for the water going into the camper to relieve any downward pressure of the water hose. At the water connection in the camp ground a water "Y" so one run goes into the camper and another for a hose for cleanup outside. I am going to invest in the covers for pop out wings to help cool/heat the bed areas.

That's it for now.....

Great board,great people...

Jim
