The number one item for me is a baseball cap. I never wear one,except when driving my motorhome. If you are going west in the evening, or east in the mourning, the windshield is too big for the sunvisors. With a cap you can pull the billl down until it blocks out the sun. You can also move the bill left or right as needed. Of course you need two because the copilot will take yours when she sees how good it works.

To protect your rig from shore power surges. Not all camp sites have reliable phased electricity and if the power company shifts grid voltage or there is a line spike locally you're systems could be fried. You can get an inline surge protector that you plug into campsite power first then plug your unit into it. All safe.

Protect your investment and put shades on your motorhome. I have included a link to RV Sunshades.

Good luck !

Real bottom line, leave alot of room for the significant other to store thing they buy while traveling. We have a rule of thumb, anything that goes into the MH that hasn't been used in 6 months is removed and sold at a garage sale. Why haul around the additional weight and limit the usuable storage area.

I carry a swiffer sweaper like the one used to clean floor, and use it to clean the windshield. You can put a micro towel on it and use invisiglass to easily remove dried on bugs from the windshield without needing a step ladder.

Check the Weight

After you get all these goodies, check your vehicle weight with tanks (fuel and water) full. It is easy to go overboard.

Anyone mention walkie talkies? Plumbing tape if you spring a small leak to go with the duct tape, if you are handy. Spare fuses. Latex type gloves if you try to pull a Robin Williams. A copy of the movie RV.
