Two spare bulbs for every type of bulb you have.



For those times when you need both hands.



For after those times when you needed both hands.

White fresh water hose (2x25 ft for 50 ft total)
Water pressure regulator
Sewer hose (we carry over 30 ft)
Clear elbow so you can see when tank is rinsed clean
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
