I know nothing about this motorhome and anyadvice or help of any kind will be greatly appreciated. I don't think it has Auto leveling jacks. What do I need to purchase? What are the essential items that I must have before going out on the road? Thank you for your help I really appreciate it.
Hello, and welcome to the forum!
First, it will be helpful to create a signature line with the information about your RV. That will let everyone know, in the future, what RV you have and you will not have to include it in the body of your post. Simply go the the top of any forum page and look at the far left side
of the box that includes your "Welcome" and user name. Click on "User CP", which takes you to your control panel. Then, click on "Edit Signature" and create one that gives the pertinent information.
Now, to your question. I assume you have the Mercedes chassis. If so, no, you probably do not have leveling jacks, but they may have been added by a previous owner.
Without knowing what you already have for travel, everything is up for grabs, but here are some suggestions
to get you started that are basics.
1. Fresh water hose made specifically for potable water, minimum 25' length.
2. Sewer hose with a clear 90* outlet coupling to fit into ground, and a clear connector between hose and RV outlet. Hose can be in more than one section, and should be able to reach min of 20'
3. A water pressure regulator to connect between hose spigot and RV city water inlet. Best to get an adjustable, free-flow regulator with pressure gauge, all brass. First check to see if the RV has a built-in regulator.
4. A surge guard for your electrical connection. Best to get a more expensive one that protects against low voltages as well as surges, and will not allow power to pass through to RV if any wiring or power faults are detected. You may have one already wired into your coach, but you will have to check. If you need one, portable or hard wired are available. Also get an adapter for your power cord that will allow you to plug into 50 or 15 amp receptacles (assuming your coach is 30 amp.)
5. Coax TV cable for hooking up at campgrounds, if you choose, a large mat or rug for the ground, and folding chairs.
6. Basic tools. Socket/ratchet set, screwdriver assortment, open end wrench set or, at least, a few adjustable wrenches of different sizes. Pliers, folding knife or Leatherman type multi-tool. Electrical tape and duct tape.
7. Electrical multi-meter, capable of testing 12vdc and 110vac.
8. Spare 12v fuses, unless you have 12v resetting breakers. Get fuses for chassis, if necessary.
The above will get you started and you will discover anything else you need as you travel. Everyone is different, but the first four items are generally universal.
