Just a cautionary note: If one of your duals goes down, so will the other. Using TPMs will alert your to a low condition on one tire and possibly save some damage.

The Crossfire has an internal valve that closes upon a tire loss of about 10PSI. So yes, a TPMS will notify you of a 10PSI loss - you need to stop and investigate why - see if the other tire is leaking air or flat. The crossfire has an indicator that will deflect toward a very low tire (indicator is level if both tires are the same or will slant toward the low tire - also, the indicator is yellow if PSI is correct, red if PSI is high, and black if PSI is low). This indicator makes checking tire pressure easy - you can clearly see it 10 feet away (and cross reference it with the TPMS).
P.S. I'm not associated with Crossfire, just a happy customer.

Some of the things that I have gathered over the last 4 months of full timing.

2x12 treated lumber for jack pads. Home Depot has a scrap lumber area near their saw. I found several pieces of 2x12s that they cut for me into squares. Drill a hole and put a string or zip ties into it. Makes great jack pads to help you level and you can use your awning puller rod to retrieve.

Dyson cordless vacuum. The little bugger works great. Got it on eBay reconditioned for 200.00

Home Depot brand 5 gallon bucket and their "bucket head" vacuum that fits on top. Great shop vac for like 25.00.

While you are there, get about 8 feet of Astro-Turf off the bulk roll. Great patio mat.

I am sure I will think of more

A Webber Q... There is just something about the way it cooks.

Funnels for filling oil and trans fluid.

A bucket... may never need it.. but you'll hate yourself if you don't have one and need it, plus you can put other things in it for storage.

2 - ten foot white water hoses
1 - two or 3 foot white water hose
1 - 25 foot coil hose (for back flushing)
1 - 25 ft white water hose (I use the roll-up flat type)
1 - 50 ft regular hose for washing.
1 - Watts Water regulator (Inline are not very accurate)

I have only had to use more than the 2 ten foot hoses a couple times. Most CG's have only required 20 feet and most of those times there were several feet coiled up.

The short water hose is for those campgrounds that have their water spigot so close to the ground, or in an odd place, that hooking up the Watts is difficult. Using the 3 foot hose the Watts can lay on the ground next to the spigot.

Bungee cords, small type with the ball on the end for securing hoses, electrical wire, and other items. I make my own using an old inner tube. Cut the tube into 1/2 inch strips, tie both ends with a knot and use the knot as a ball. They cinch up real nice.

Happy trails.

I see a number of folks mention the residential fridge.

What are the pros and cons of 120v vs RV units?

I like, where does one fine used tire tubes these days? I have plenty of bike tire tubes, won't work for this idea though.

I must be feeling height challenged, 7 foot ladder that collapses for easy storage.

If your awning is not automatic, tie downs for long term set up (more than an hour), we almost never leave ours extended overnight or when leaving the immediate vicinity of the coach.

Has someone said grey tape/duck tape/duct tape or whatever?

quick disconnects for water lines, haven't put mine on yet, but I will real sooon now

Sewer Sock! make your own, old tube sock, filled with sand double wrapped in plastic bags secured with grey tape. Drape it over the sewer connector to keep it secure, it is better than rocks, which may not be available.
