After our last trip to at State Park we now carry 3 25' drinking water hoses. They all the roll flat type and fit nicely in a 5 gallon bucket with the filter housing and and other fittings.

For leveling i use a mix of 4"x6"x12" treated blocks for the jacks and 1'x4'x3/4" under the tires. All from scrap wood I had out in the shop.

+1 on the notepad. We take time on every trip to note what needs to be replaced/refilled and what we want to remember for our next trip.

Best of luck!!

Greg

Just remember no matter where you go you will most likely be close to a WALMART or a LOWES. Also the camp ground store usually has all the necessity items...

We carry 2 25' white hoses for drinking water and a 50' green hose for washing trailer or truck. Also a 15' hose to use for black tank cleaning at dump station. We carry and extra 25' 30 amp electrical cable. We have several different size 1 and 1/2 inch thick wood blocks for leveling and sandpads, plus a 6' long 10" x 3/4 board for leveling. We use paper plates and plastic cups, except for ceramic coffiee mugs and real glass for wine glasses. We do not use plastic silverware. We store alot of stuff in 14 x 16 inch plastic crates in the front compartment.

We use an old set of Corelle dishes with real silverware. Most of the cups are disposable but I do have a few plastic cups for mixed drinks.

The bathroom could use more storage so we have a shoe rack that hangs from the door that we put soaps, insect spray, shampoos, etc. in.

Thanks everyone. I'm getting some good ideas. I picked the trailer up this evening and was pleasantly surprised to find that the previous owner left it well equipped with hoses and leveling blocks. He also included a WD hitch that definitely needs some adjusting. I'll need a new receiver insert to drop it a couple of inches lower because the Tahoe's hitch comes out of the center of the bumper. Here is a photo that I snapped in a Walmart lot where we pulled off to check everything. The trailer is riding nose high.

I bought silverware and a lot of kitchen essentials at Ikea. Not sure about our plastic dishes but they are microwave safe. They came from Home Goods. I like the Lynxx Leveling blocks as the stack nicely and come in a convenient carry bag and make leveling very simple. I used to carry wood blocks now I have 2 sets of lynx. I carry for water hoses 1- 25' and 1- 10' white hose. I usually use the 10' but nice to have 35' if I need it. I carry the same 25' and 10' green hose for black flush and just to have a outside water. I also use a brass L to connect into the fresh water intake on the side of the trailer and a y connector on the water spigot.

Someone told me this piece of good advice that I use. Never connect to the black water flush and leave it unattended. Only connect when you plan on using the flush. If it accidentally gets turned on and its connected and you are not around, your black tank will fill and come up through your toilet and you may come back to a big mess. Although this never happened to me... I did come back once to find no water in the trailer and traced it back to the spigot being turned off. It turns out the park had some water issues while we were out one day and was messing with the spigot at certain sites. Imagine if they had turned it back on and it was connected to the black flush.... I don't want to ever experience that. Just a thought!

We have 2 sets of Lynx Leveling blocks and caps for jacks in case ground is soft along with wheel chocks so it all fits together. Makes set up easy.

As far as dishes we also use corelle and use this http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...-a-plate/38323 to keep the dishes from shifting or breaking. They have worked great for us over many many miles and roads.

Really nice rig... Almost identical to my setup with a 21FB TT and Yukon TV (w/ a Drawtite WD hitch and a Curt sway strut).. What kind of suspension setup do you run in the Tahoe? I have the SLT Autoride system in the yukon and the compressor runs quite a bit while I am hitched up.
