Ordered a 26.5 RLS - What basic additional do I need?

First 5th or any kind of camper I'm not so concerned about general "stuff" for living/camping. We're old hands at base camp tent stuff, and there are a myriad of lists to help, so should be able to figure that out. I'm, thinking more specific "drive-away from the dealer" items. They are giving us store credit, rather than a prepackaged startup kit. So, what's included, and especially what's not, when we take delivery? I'm wondering about: Hoses, cords, leveling blocks, kinds of electrical plugs, water pressure regulator, surge protecter? What should we have, what should we replace (even if it is included), and any recommendations about type/brand would be appreciated! While not meant to be an "service/repair" list, anything that it would be wise to get while I'm filling my shopping cart? Or, of course, if I need it, but should probably look elsewhere to buy it....

Thanks in advance!

You may find this "TOP TEN must haves" discussion thread interesting. If you do not get the start up kit there will be very little that comes with the trailer in the line of hoses, etc. But then you can get better quality stuff from the start.
