Brand New Motorhome - What else do I need?

I hope to get my new Class A motorhome on Thursday/Friday this week. What accessories do I need to pick up for the use, care and maintenance of it? What do you use as part of your daily/regular motorhome routine that you wouldn't do without?

I would hope the dealer will give you at least a roll or two of toilet paper, some tank treatment chemicals, a water hose, a water pressure device , a sewer donut , and a sewer hose with fittings. Next on your list should be another fresh water hose, a 30/50 or 50/30amp adapter as well as more types as you come across the need. A sewer hose extension, a progressive industries surge protector, TPMS. Most everything else can wait until day two when you have some experience. Good Luck.

Pick up hoses to empty out your tanks and a water hose and filter to either fill up your tanks and hook up to a water source at campgrounds.

Other than that it all depends on what you like to do. Here are a list of common items.

Outdoor lights
Outdoor grill
Other cooking appliances for outside
Mat for outside

Just go to campingworld.com and search around. You will find tons of things that you don't need but must have. Haha

That's what I'm afraid of. It's only a 29' so I've got to stay out of places like that.

A note pad and pen. Keep it close. Use it when you have a thought.

Tire Pressure Monitor Sysyem (TPMS). You will need, not want but need, a sensor for each wheel on the coach PLUS one for each wheel on the toad. Of course you'll need a way to tow, preferably four down. If four down you will need a braking system for the toad.
Sewer hose and attachments. A six inch clear sewer adapter so you can see if everything is draining properly, a potable water hose for house water and filling the fresh water tank. A separate garden hose for flushing the black tank. Quick connects are handy but not necessary for the hoses. Some people use rubber or latex gloves when handling the sewer connection. I use Clorox wipes and fill my soap dispenser in the wet bay with hand sanatizer.
I think those are the very basic necessities. After that you will find lots and lots and lots of stuff you "need".
I'm sure there is more that people will add.
