My new 19xud

I'm new here. Direct me to the answer if it already has been asked.
We just upgraded from a 2001 pop-up to a 2018 19XUD. So I have the basic camping supplies.
Going from to a little bigger camper I have a few questions.
I told the dealer to give me $600 toward a weight distribution hitch. What's a decent one?
What is good for chocking the tandem axle?
Is there anything else I should get? (water pressure regulator, surge suppresor. Etc.?)

Check out the "hitch and ..." thread. A lot of good suggestions there.

Welcome to JOF!!! Lots of great information here. Which side of the falls are you on?

Moving from our pup to the 19H there was very little that I needed. The electrical service amperage increased as I now have A/C, so a heavier extension cord was required. My existing plastic chocks work fine, but I decided to upgrade to Andersen levelers as I was going to have to buy more Lego's for leveling the second axle anyway. The electric awning required some head protection (pool noodles) to put on the arms that stick out at "just the right height". I already had the freshwater hoses, but needed the sewer hoses as the pup had no waste tanks.

Think that's about all I had to buy different from our standard kit. Of course there were lots of other gadgets purchased "just because", but none were necessary.

ETA: forgot the WDH. For a very light trailer like yours, you don't have to spend a lot on a WDH, you may not need it depending on type of TV. I just put on an inexpensive Husky Round Bar (with sway control) with the smallest bars (600 lbs. - Husky part 31986) and am very happy with it. There are fancier options out there, but they all accomplish the same thing.

Check into Fastway e2 wdh. For your size unit that should be more than enough hitch. The other item to consider is a Progressive EMS Surge Protector.

Congratulations on your upgrade also!

We took much the same route... popup to 19XUD

We found that the same chocks worked just fine, and we didn't need a WDH..

Our popup had an oven, but the 19 doesn't, so we bought a small toaster oven. Travelling, it lives under the sink.. parked, it fits nicely on the space above the fridge... there's power up there, too.

The 'pup had two gas bottles, but the 19 has just one, so I got a two-bottle platform that I'm in the process of fitting on the tngue. (Oh..when you come to change the bottle... it's bolted on from underneath. Yes, you do have to lie on the ground with a wrench to change the gas bottle ! A nice heavy cargo strap solved that one.)
