The cheaper unit only provides basic surge protection, up to 1650 joules, and 45,000 amp surge current rating.

The more expensive unit provides surge protection up to 3,580 joules, and , 88,000A surge current rating. It also provides over/under voltage protection and some other tests on the power connection before passing power to the coach.

Buy the better unit.

We needed specific bulbs for the "scare" lights on our MH. Found them at NAPA for $5.95 EACH! Got a box of 12 over the internet for about $1.85 each. Now I wish I had just bought LED's instead!

It took me about an hour, including cutting, stripping, and mounting it to the bay sidewall.

Don't take this wrong, I once was a Boy Scoutt and like to travel PREPARED for all occasions but having a complete supply of Everything you might need takes up a lot of room, adds weight and besides I like a strolle through the big box store to walk off a big dinner every now and then. Hard to find items sure carry a spare but having it packed in your MH doesn't mean you can find it if your over packed. Just saying. Enjoy

Don't remember if I said it before, but it you break something, and carry a spare, you will never break that part again - Dunner, some time in the past.

I've also read that for a smoother ride, put the heavy stuff forward in the coach and basement.

Toothpicks..........
For the obvious reason, and because when screws fall out, and they will, you can shove a toothpick in the hole and re-tighten them tight, that is if you can find the hole they fell out of.

A note pad and pen in the cab of the driven vehicle and one in the rv as well. Write down things you would like and things to remove from the rv as well as things that pop into your mind. Keep them handy.

My used MH came with at least 3 tables. A roll-up, metal folding grill table and a plastic one.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) - for safety and piece of mind.
The Dual rear tires were a PIA to maintain for me, so I went with 1 Crossfire and 1 TST507 (1 Crossfire and 1 TPMS per side on the rear end).
Also, do anything you can to avoid a front tire blow-out (ie. ensure great tires are on the front and TPMS to monitor temp and pressure))
