Welcome and congrats on the first tt!!!

Keep some paper and a pen/pencil handy to write stuff down that you could use or need as you think of them.

Plan on readjusting the wdh if you have one once you get the trailer all loaded up and set with stuff in it. The dealer is only setting the wdh up for an empty trailer. Follow my signature links for a ton of wdh info.

If you think you need to, video tape the walk through so you have a reference to fall back on if needed for appliance operation or anything else you may have questions about.

Use some 2x8 (or 10) boards or the Lego blocks to level the trailer side to side. Set the wheel chocks, THEN unhook the tv (tow vehicle). Then use the tongue jack to level the tt front to rear. Lower the stabilizer jacks (if equipped) and your all set!!!

Things you may eventually/will need:
Better sewer hose (and longer) than what the dealer may give you.
30amp extension cord.
Fresh water hose.
Boards/ Lego blocks for leveling the trailer. Also for under the stabilizer jacks.
Wheel chocks. Consider X-chocks also, but only use w/ regular wheel chocks.
Water pressure regulator/ filter.
Awning mat.
30amp f to 15amp m adapter.
30amp f to 50amp m adapter.

I know I am missing stuff, but it's a start.

Have fun!!!

I would add to need-a-vacation's list an electrical management system (EMS) such as Progressive Industries EMS-PTC30C. Ours has provided protection on numerous occasions.

X2 on the 30amp to 15amp and 30amp to 50amp adapters. On our first two trips this year the 30amp receptacle was very loose and showed signs of scorching and we ended up using the 30amp-50amp in both cases. We also carry a heavy duty 20amp 110v extension cord for use with the 30amp-15amp adapter if we have to go that route.

We moved off the ground when our kids were all off to college. We named our TT "The Empty Nest".
My advice? Chillax and have fun. You'll forget a bunch of stuff, and make a few mistakes. But you will survive and learn - just like you did when you started tent camping.

TY!!! Knew I was missing something. That is another thing that is still on my "grocery list"!!! Lol We also carry a couple HD 20amp extension cords. Just never know.... Plus we have an counter top ice maker we use on the longer trips.

We also have a couple of the rectangular Aluminum roll top tables, come in very handy when cooking outside set up by the grill & stove.

Also consider a tpms for the tt.

That's the best way to find out what you do and don't need. Also if you are in a cg, walk around and look and ask people what they like and dislike about accessories. There is a new thread on just this subject, https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f1...ell-36509.html

This forum can give you all manner of various opinions!
