Lots of good suggestions above! Other than the normal small items that you obviously need, I strongly urge you to spend the $350 and get one of the Progressive Industries HW-50C Electrical Management Systems! It protects your MH against ANY kind of electrical problem and could keep you from spending thousands of dollars replacing just about all the electrical devices!
I chose the HW50C, which is the hard-wired model, but some people use the PT-50C, which just goes in-line with your power cord at the post.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

This subject has been beat to death over the years in many threads. You don't need the over-priced single ply excuse for TP.

If it is septic safe it should be safe for your RV. Don't skimp on your bottom or your bottom may rebel.

A bunch of Dusters for when TV seams inappropriate.

A good map book for the area you are traveling through and plan to play in.

Good music via a medium of your choice.

Right about now I'd be trying to determine how much CCC you've got left!

Don't forget the portable fire pit and starter logs! Nothing beats a good fire at the end of the day and some places don't have fire pits that are convenient. Bring your own and have a fire where you see fit.

Plus these will get you around fire bans in the summer if they're propane that is.

Also, all linens (towels and sheets, etc) and kitchen supplies you need (don't move things from the house to rv for each trip).

I got one of these: Ozark Trial Camping Pad, Blue: Camping : Walmart.com

It’s 18” wide, 72” long and ½” thick. I cut it into 6 - 12”X18” pieces and distributed them among the storage bays. For less than $8, I’ve always got a “kneeler” handy. Saves my knees when hooking up water/sewer and toad. If you always put the dirty side down, it’ll save laundry, too. No harm to your CCC, either.

Take care,
Stu

Not always. we were told to put one out because people who could see it from afar, may star a wood fire, if they didn't know ours was propane fueled. Not all forestry workers have positive IQs.

Agreed. It's a must have installation. I also chose the hard-wired model to alleviate my concern over theft ...

I purchased the non hard wired but now you have me thinking, someone could very easily steal it. How hard is it to wire in the hard-wire model?
