Electric multi meter tester ($10) to test those power poles before you plug in. Lori is right. Never trust the power source. The consequences are too expensive.

Rhino is a good brand for sewer hoses and connections. Florid wipes to store nearby.

Some kind of ladder to help reach the windshield when you want to wash it or wax it.

Milton truck tire pressure gauge. Northern tools has them. More reliable than electronic ones.

Others have listed some essentials. Make do with them for a while or else you will over buy. I know. You will find out which are the must haves, nice to haves, don't needs, and really don't needs.

We have bought almost all the mentioned items and not many of them have been a waste of money. The one item we bought that gets used every trip and we would without doubt buy again is this table.
http://www.amazon.com/Coleman-2000003098-Pack-Away-4-In-1-Table/dp/B002YXR766/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=automotive&qid=1299868716&sr= 8-2
So many ways to use it, and it stores very easy, and small. Can't imagine being without it. Visit the link above and check the pictures for all the ways to configure this table.
