My main things I make sure to have enough of are wood blocks or 2x8 boards, my Anderson levelers, all different connections for electrical hook ups, 2000 watt gen if need power somewhere, some water in the FW tank in case stops along the road are needed, toilet sanitizer/ deodorant, I'm sure there's more

Lots of suggestions, I may repeat some. Main thing... A good sense of humor, crap is gonna happen, no, literally crap will happen.
1. Tool box to keep what you start with, and what you find out you need along the way
2. Insurance
3. Learn about low hanging trees - not all leaves are leaves, sometimes it's leaves growing over 8" diameter limbs that have been trimmed by city workers. Those will scrape off your roof vents and shower dome, I know.
3. Roof Vents -Airmaxx
4. Extra keys
5. Understand Tire pressure - We have $99 Porter Cable 150 lb compressor. From my experience most RV parks don't have air when you need it.
6. Dust mat to put under your outside steps - keeps more of the dirt out.
7. An electric skillet - when your loaded down with people, cooking the bacon outside by yourself with a cup of coffee is pretty awesome.
8. Coffee.
9. Amp Probe - not all power receptacles are the same, especially in the heat of the summer.
10. Beer.

have fun each time. Good Luck and welcome!

I do number seven at least once a trip, twice if the weather holds.....

Refrigerator thermometer
Plug in nightlight (handy to verify power)

A heavy duty cordless drill was mentioned. I do stuff that requires that at home, and instead carry a small 4 volt driver/drill that's probably the most used tool in the place:

Also have a water filter pitcher, like a Brita, used even when hooked up to good city water.

I use this.

Camco Leveling Scissor Jack Drill Socket - Walmart.com

In an old corded jack to work the stab jacks up and down, but many here use the big cordless for the power.

Wow everyone! Thanks for the awesome advice. For those that asked, we'll be doing 99% full-hookups every time (elec., water, sewer).

We used to own a boat, so I'm familiar that "things" always seem to happen and pop-up, so learning to go with that flow isn't an issue. I'm looking for any and all ideas of objects, items, tools or such that you have found that really helps!
