Do I need pads or blocks for the leveling system? What small things did you find you needed, and didn't have? I don't want to get to our first RV park and find out that I really needed X and didn't have it. Thanks all in advance.

Suggest a surge protector. Here I sit in the middle of a storm , thinking that the state park Iím in is empty, so has plenty of power and alas a big storm and big booms. My wife asks if I have storm surge hooked up, um, nope. Can fry systems on your rv. Not cheap but cheaper then thousands in your rv.
Also, I use quick dis moneys on my watering systems, easy on easy off. At any hardware store.
Also tire covers for extended stays not short trips
Also tool kit, usual stuff, plus duct tape. Think about what you might repair. I took drill and bits on long trip, and used them! With zip ties!
Also, front shield for window, inside like in car, cheap, keeps direct sun out.

They have lots of camping supplies as well as usually allow overnight stays.

Happy Glamping.
Interesting. We have no pro bass store. Walmart, Lowes, tractor supply, 2 local rv/boat shops. And the are too small to allow overnight. Thanks for taking the time to look that up.

In addition to basic tools a digital V meter (and getting familiar with using it) very helpful troubleshooting any electrical problems. If you are buying one look for one with a clamp on amp meter capable of doing DC as well as AC (not all do both).

Newbie question

Get more sewer hose sections and connectors than you think youíll ever need. At some point youíll need them. Extra lengths of water hose. A Y adapter so you can hook up more than one water hose is helpful too. Also a extension cord for the occasional park that has pedestals in wierd places. If your rig is 50amp then be sure to have a 30 amp to 50 amp dogbone adapter for those times you end up in a 30 amp site. Be sure to take a great attitude for plenty of fun!!!

Thanks for all that responded. Trying hard to make our list and not miss anything. I'm sure I will, but there's always a store nearby.
