If you don't have a built in black tank flush, then a wand and a separate long hose to flush tank from inside trailer.
Plumbers tape
Electric tape
Air compressor (ours will also jump a battery if necessary)
Heavy duty chocks
Leveling blocks (we use lynx levelers)
50 ft rv extension cord
30/50 amp dogbone adapter
20/30 amp dogbone adapter
Surge protector
Tool kit with cordless drill (14 v or better)
Extra fuses of all types in your trailer
Battery cutoff switch
Stock the inside like a house with dishes, toiletries etc that live in trailer so when camping you only have to worry about packing food and clothes.... We even have a hand held vacuum and.swiffer that live in our tt.
First aid kit
Camping chairs for outside
Grill
Fire poker
Safety hazard triangle in case of breakdown
Emergency roadside assistance (good Sam ers or coach-net). AAA has to have separate policy in place to tow your trailer for you.
Water filter is optional
If a tt, htt, pup see if you need wdh and sway control (ask and we will help you determine what type and better brands to get
Chemicals for black tank (we like the geo method)
Toilet paper.... Does not need to be rv specific, single ply septic safe is fine. We use angel soft with no issues.
A sense of humor is a must. You have to laugh at your mistakes or you won't have fun
Before you buy AAA check out Good Sams because AAA plus Rv is not what they say it is. I been a member AAA for 13 yrs and got screw with the trailer part

A friend found that out the hard way with AAA - he had AAA plus but that only picked his broken down truck. Which is why he called me and I drove a 100 miles each way to rescue him and his 5 wheel. I am told you can get AAA plus plus which will pick up a truck and trailer but a better option is Good Sam roadside assistance. They were quick and I was impressed with the entire experience. Thankfully I've only needed them once in the 8 years we have been traveling the roads...

A personal/family protection device of your choosing can provide peace of mind in unexpected traumatic situations.

Many great suggestions here! Having just graduated this summer from tent to TT, we have found that priorities have changed only in that our new needs are totally related to TT and TV/hitch/WDH maintenance. We could totally dry camp using our TT as a "tent" for a week or more. It's easy to get used to the convenience of hookups, but in years past we brought flashlights, batteries, 2 burner propane stove, water jugs, etc. We have television for our TT... have camped 30 nights this summer. Never used television, it sat in the back seat of my truck. We went for walks rain or shine (those newer rain suits are the bomb!), read our books, played cards, talked!, had fires... charged Ipod and mini-X speakers in the truck so had music when we wanted...

I had AAA plus Rv and I broke down the first time 15 miles from home that wasn't bad my dad had to come and pick up my trailer.and then I broke down 107 miles from home AAA pick up my truck but my dad had to come pick up my trailer.Read the fine print it states the only way they will tow your trailer if you have a broken axle bc what else can go wrong them

If you plan on traveling with a dog, or cat, you are going to need a really good vacuum cleaner.
