I recommend a good commercial type battery charger (and if your TT only came with one battery get another) if you are not going to have a generator/s. Generator is on my list of things to get but so far we only camp at sites with hookups. Remember with most TTs the lights are all 12v only.
Also a black/grey water tote is a good investment.

A few things we have found we like/need to have:

Need - A really good sewer hose. Not the cheap piece they give you as a starter. I forget the brand, but we have a red hose that has the ends built on. Well worth the money!
-A sewer hose support. Slunky or catepillar or whatever they are called. It only took me one time of trying to get the hose to drain by holding it up in diffent places.
-Black tank flush if you dont have one built in.
-X-chock to go between the tires if a dual axle.

Like - Oversized antigravity chairs
-Patio mat
-Bins to organize hoses and blocks in exterior storage

Have fun discovering all the things you find you want/need.

Make sure your dishes are "Corelle". They are Microwave safe (melamine isn't) and they are virtually unbreakable.
