Strongly consider an EPO or EMS unit instead of surge protector. They do cost more but you get much more protection. Hughes and Progressive Industries are very popular.

And a clear elbow is handy when dumping your black tank so you know when it's running clean. Link:

It's so weird being the same age as old people.

Twist on dump valve

Twist-on dump valve. Good insurance to have when you take your cap off...

A high limit credit card
A emergency service card (AAA, GoodSam, Coachnet, etc)
A charged cellphone with usable coverage to call the emergency service.
A patient and loving partner who won't chew you out for it breaking again.

Various wood blocks for leveling trailer, etc. (I carry a variety of sizes and often use blocks for leveling the picnic table, grill, etc.) Chocks for the wheels. Extension cord. A fan for outside if it's warm, or the bugs are bad. Repair kit with tools, fuses, tape, an extra tarp, zip ties, spare bulbs, multimeter or test light. Extra water hose, or at least a hose repair kit. Make sure you have a lug wrench that fits the trailer wheels, and a way to jack it up in case you have a flat. Make sure to pack a good attitude and lots of flexibility!

Make sure you also have a lug wrench that fits the spare tire holder. Mine are a different size than the ones on the axles.
