Kerry,
Even though I do not own it yet, I have almost certainly narrowed it down to the Winnebago Vista 29VE and even if that is not the one, it most certainly will be a gasser. (I probably didn't mention that) Plus, I really didn't know the bigger coaches would require higher tire pressure. Plus+, I am just compiling a list, not actually purchasing anything until I actually purchase the MH.

You have just verified what I was thinking about the starter kits.

No way in h@@ would I use RV toilet paper. I had some and it was one ply. Do a search on each item. Buy good quality items. When something like a sewer hose fails its never pretty.

So you just use regular TP? Like Charmin?

Besides the white or blue fresh water hose, do I need another hose to perform flushing operations? I thought I read that somewhere.

Go cheap! Then figure out what you will really use and then upgrade those as time goes on. I don't use septic chemicals or that worthless overpriced TP. Everything else except the pressure regulator I have upgraded or added more of in the last 5 1/2 years.

Absolutely! I am very protective of my drinking water hose. No dragging the ends thru the grass.

I keep a 25' garden hose in the sewer bay, because that's what I had. A shorter one would work. I use a sewer cap that has a garden hose fitting on it for 2 reasons -- to hook up the hose when I want to release just the gray water and that can be opened above the 3" sewer hose connection just in case there has been a some seepage. It's easy to open the small cap and allow what may be inside drain into the open end of the 3" sewer hose.

Not necessarily, my very heavy rig (50,000#'s loaded) takes 80 in the tag, 85 in the drive and 110 in the front tires. So only two of my eight need over 100. Those pressures are 5psi over what is called for by the charts except the tag which is at the minimum required even fully loaded. But it does take a hefty compressor as the tires are huge compared to most, same size as a Prevost or Newell in fact.
And yes, those items in a starter kit are low quality! Probably want to consider replacing them sooner than later. In fact I'd probably set them aside for emergency use and buy better quality.

Don't buy RV paper. We always bought the Costco Kirkland brand but there are many others to choose from. Just make sure it says 'septic safe' and it was dissolve easily.

This may be the best tip yet

So very true, the best trick is use lots, lots of water when flushing the toilet.
