Just go to Camping World and your cart will fill itself plenty fast

Looks like a lot of my ideas were taken, but here it goes!

-Extra wood blocks for under the stabilizers and tongue jack (not having the jack fully extended reduces wobble)
-RV legos for leveling (makes it quick and easy)
-2' level (has been said already, but it's one of my handiest tools)
-Cordless drill and socket if you don't have electric stabilizer jacks
-Sewer hose level-adjuster/cradle (makes life way easier)
-Tool box with basic hand-tools/mechanic type stuff
-A good helper (my wife has become a master of helping setup. Our kids are young, so they don't get to get out of the truck until the trailer is leveled at least. They're pretty anxious, so quick setup is paramount). We've had to work on our communication skills to accomplish this :hihi:

I made myself set up and departure checklists and laminated them. Helps me remember all critical steps. Also I recommend having 2 water hoses as I have camped at places where one hose would not reach the spiget. of course purchase everything that has been listed before my comments and don't forget to include a nice little toolbox.

A few good kids movies and a nice bottle of wine or two.

You can totally save a rainy camping afternoon by putting a movie in for the kids inside and having some wine under the awning with your spouse.

Camp Chef(or any brand equivalent). Meals are much easier to prepare.

For those of you that use the "slunky" or expandable sewage support systems... I grabbed an 8 foot piece of vinyl gutter, and cut it into 4 foot sections. Takes the loops out of where your hose goes and provides excellent support for the downhill!

So many great ideas already, but here are some things another newb (me) added after the first couple trips:

1) A set of large channel locks (to loosen a stuck sewer cap among many other uses)
2) A regular garden hose (in addition to your fresh water hoses) to rinse out sewer hoses or run your black-tank flush
3) Head-lamps
4) Go to Harbor Freight or Big Lots and get one of those multi-packs of cheap aluminum LED flash lights. DW bought a couple packs and we leave them all over the place so we're never searching in the dark for a flashlight
5) A set of radios to communicate with your spotter, DW in my case. This dramatically decreases the volume and frustration of our setup process.
6) A couple gallons of store-bought drinking water, you never know what the water situation will be like...
