Your Most Essential Motorhome Items That Did Not Come With The Motorhome

I have my 1st Motorhome being delivered in the next week or so (Tiffin Red 37BA, all electric). We will soon be on the go and love out of the way places, towing a Jeep JL.
So please share maybe 2 or 3 items that you consider essential that do not typically come with a new unit. It can be anything either on the men's or ladies side. Power Surge Protection to Pima Cotton Sheets.

Thank You in Advance!

Tops on the list would be a good AC protection device such as the EMS series from Progressive Industries! The second thing for me would be a good-quality water pressure regulator!

After you get the list of recommended items to carry, you'll want a bigger rig. Start with just the essentials and expand them as needed. You can always add needed things on the road. Then after a year, remove all the items you didn't use. We all carry too much stuff with us.

IR temp gun...OH wait, you do not have a NoCold 1200 refrigerator.,. Still good for taking temperatures. Several LED lights/lanterns. Fuel filters. GasBuddy and RV Parky Apps.

I have a Menards cheap blue whole house filter with a drinking water filter inside. I fill slow to give it a chance to work, keeps well water from being smelly. Just bought a RV softener. Wall mount shampoo dispenser for shower. Squeegee for shower walls and glass. Some sort of leveling pads. Personal headlamp "quality". A kneeling pad. A just in case battery charger & extension cords.

Make that digital V meter one that has a clamp on amp meter capable of reading DC amps. Worth a few extra $.
Good list so far but I'd add a windshield squeegee on ling handle and good spray bottle of window cleaner.
