Hi breeder,
For us, what to take depends on the trip we are taking, for how long and who is going on the trip. You will develop your list, over time. Consider dividing up the responsibility into interior (living) items and exterior (automotive/coach repair) items. My wife handles the interior (living items). These include all the kitchen items (pots, pans, silverware, etc), food, paper towels, soap, clothing (except for me) toiletries, etc.

I handle all the coach/automotive items. All my items are in the coach permanently. They include, blocking boards for the jacks, tools (the same that you have for the cars), tire PSI gage, 2 gallons of oil (I have a DP) a gallon of transmission fluid and coolant. A roll of EternaBond, air compressor, ladder (for cleaning the windshield), wax and cleaners for the outside of the coach, chairs, fold up tables, gloves, etc. Emergency roadside triangles. The next day's drive route outline is on a small pad for my reference. This is in addition to the GPS, which I have reviewed and either agree with or know where I will deviate from the GPS. Flash lights and a supply of new batteries for all the battery powered stuff.

There are more items, but these are the basics. In the winter months an outside grill (I live in South Florida) for cooking outside is also taken.

My assumption is you have the basic hookup items. Sewer and water hoses and adapters.. Electric adapters for different shore power. Surge protector for the electric and water pressure regulator.

It's going to vary according to the length of trip, just a weekend or several weeks, will determing the amount of some things you will take. All of what Gary says is right. If you full time you will add everything within your weight limits that it will take.

Hi Breeder
Checklists are usually made depending on storage, activities, where you are going, how long you will be staying, hobbies, important things to not forget, etc. Making them starts with a basic list and then add to it as your needs change.
For a few quick checklists to get you started go to the following internet site. You will find the lists and a lot more useful information for you to peruse at your leisure.

Breeder, you can make your own list best. Pick an item like tools, think about what you should have on board. Things for the chassis, oil, coolant, air compressor, tire gouge ect. Going to the beach, beach towels, sun screen, chaires...... After a trip or two you will add to and delete from until you get it right.
