[QUOTE="mga60tw;1654453"]must haves: extra sewage hose, extra water hose, extra power cord and tv cable. Many places you will need the extra length of all the above.[/QUOTE

Ever pull in to a beautiful site by a river or lake and find that they are back in sites and you have a clear view of the SHOWERS. ??
Thais why you need the extra length hook ups.
Now you can pull in forward and enjoy the view !!

Fun or classy awning lights, whichever you prefer. It's not camping without awning lights. If your going to get a grill, I would get the weber Q. I have had the Coleman roadtrip and the weber is easier to store, easier to clean and stays looking new longer. It also has a higher dome for cooking larger items. Small Rubbermaid tubs for holding cleaning supplies under each sink. Extra AA and AAA batteries along with a 9v for when the smoke alarm starts beeping in the middle of the night. A couple small extension cords for radios and awning lights. Bag chairs for the kids and two really nice suspension chairs / recliners for mom and dad. Last but not least, a small dirt devil vacuum and a swiffer wet jet.

Wow... you asked for suggestions and you got them! Here's some more. 1) A trash can for outside. I just replaced our plastic one with a pop-up one that holds a standard garbage bag. 2) an outside broom 3) I am a clean freak so we always carry a doormat to put in front of the steps...to put on top of the outdoor mat. * Note...your space maybe limited...allot of the suggestions can be purchased specifically for rv's. Collapsible buckets, brooms, trash cans, etc. 4) Oh and last but not least...rain gear! We purchased ours this past year... I got tired of using umbrella's to walk the dogs in the rain. And DH really liked his jacket for set-up and tear down during torrential rain storms.

make sure your clean water hose is used only for that, get another hose, different color, for all other uses, especially for flushing our the black water tank.

15 amp, 30 amp, and/or 50 amp adapters--as needed to convert your power cord to what ever outlet you are trying to plug into.

2x on the surge protector and water pressure regulator

checklist for setting up and especially for tearing down, it is easy to get side-tracked by children (We had 3 children also and all of them wanted to help--"Me do it" ), other campers who want to visit or worse yet want to help. I know they mean well, but I have a set routine and I do not let anyone interfere with it. DW takes care of the inside stuff and I do the outside--for some reason she dislikes messing with the sewer hose

2xx on toys for when it is raining or other things happen.

Good luck and hope you have a joyous time

"Head lamps", the lights that you wear on our head. Looks a little dorky, but they're great for setting up late when you need both hands. Poop bags or shovel if you have dogs. Good sense of humor and the knowledge that you'll eventually screw something up. Nobody remembers the mundane, but mess up stories are great - later. You WILL forget stuff, and you WILL screw up. Everybody does, and probably will again.
