A multimeter never leaves my coach. Plenty of extra chassis and coach fuses and bulbs. some extra wire, connectors, engine oil and ATF for the leveling system. Back up control boards for genny, frig and HWH.

Now to the important stuff.....

2 cases of Pino for DW, 2 cases of Shiraz for me. A bottle of Remy Martin VSOP and a bunch of big fat cigars.

One very important thing i will never camp without again is knowing where the storm shelters are in a CG. And i will tell this story. Over the 4th of July we were at our favorite SP which is only 30 min.from our house...and we camp there 4-5 times per year. We knew storms were coming but not aware, nor was anyone else, of the intensity. We were preparing the rv and my phone sounded off the Emergency tone. It said "tornados in your area take shelter immediately " we have to small children and i told my wife go and find shelter now! I had to put the slides in and awning up figuring I could get a ride from the ranger. Well i was wrong. No one came by and I was alone in the camper. What else do you so at that point? So i rode it out. Not much scares me but this did. Then the golf ball size hail started. This is where i was thankful to be in the rv. The hail broke all of our vent covers and rain was pouring in. Not to mention the $7000 in hail damage to my truck. In the end everyone was ok and there were 3 tornado touchdowns in a 3 mile radius of the CG. Everyone was OK but the damage inside the CG was extensive. Sorry for the lengthly story but we learned something very important... no matter where you camp ALWAYS AND I MEAN ALWAYS know where to go in the event of tornados.

We tent camp with our smoker, alas, there's no room for it in the MH. Have you tried bacon-wrapped pork loin or smoked meatloaf? Those are some of our favorite camping dinners, and we use it to bake biscuits and cinnamon rolls for breakfast.

We're newbies too - There's lots of good info here. One thing we figured out between the first and second outings was to bring our Nespresso Pixie and Aeroccino! That way, we can have our frou-frou coffee drinks whenever we want them, no matter where the nearest coffee place is

And I like to have maps, too. GPS is nice, but occasionally, it's just plain wrong.

Must be a Jack Russell owner thing, 'cept in our case it's Pinot for me, Shiraz for her, and no ceeegars.

I haven't buy I will now. I just started towing my TT with a pick up truck. It opened all kinds of possibilities. Not sure what I'll do when I get a motor home.

All of you light weight drinkers forgot the most important drink and the proper tools needed to make it........filters, 12 cup pot and COFFEE...for the morning after the party........so you can sober up for the next party. You can use the same red solo cup...no need to rinse....
