Must haves

My family is all working hard to get the RV ready for our first camping trip. loading all the necessities, bicycles, fishing gear, etc. I cant help but think that we are missing things. Ive read the online "must have" lists. What is everybody's "must haves" or things they forgot about on their first trip?

Put together a small electrical kit - fuses - connectors - wire - crimper - 4 alligator clips - multimeter, you might be surprised by the number of electrical issues Pop Up after sitting all winter.

I concur a good quality multimeter is invaluable to test pedestal voltage before plugging in, battery voltage, etc.

Attitude? A good attitude makes all of the difference. Stuff gets forgotten. Stuff breaks. You always wish you had brought more stuff. No matter where you are there is always something to see, something to explore and something to do.

Take along a couple of wire coat hangers.
Of course, some duct tape and a can of WD-40 are essentials.
