90 degree clear sewer hose adapter, white fresh water hoses (4' and 25'), a hose connection with a faucet attachment and/or Y connector, pigtail connectors for different electrical connections at campsites and a favorite - folding rocking chairs. Some of these can be bought more cheaply elsewhere but they've been handy for us. There are lots of storage things (tubs, square plastic lidded containers, rubber mats) that help keep things from shifting when you travel and we got all of those at Walmart after checking the cabinet sizes against what we were taking.

Oddly enough we actually have a "Top ten must haves" thread. It goes a bit further then that though!

1) A regular garden hose (in addition to your 2 fresh water hoses). I really have a hard time rinsing out my sewage lines with a drinking water hose. And even though I know there's virtually no chance contaminated water will blow back into the hose on my built-in black tank rinse, I'm still not going to get my drinking water hose anywhere near that stuff. Two fresh water hoses because some water services may be more than 25' from your city water hookup.

2) A large set of channel locks. You need them to remove the cap on some sewer pipes at full-hookup sites. Harbor freight sells a great 4-pack of different sizes with bright orange handles that makes them easier to find in the dim or dark.

Clear elbow for your sewer hose. You can't really tell by sound when the tank has completely drained, plus it helps you know when the black tank is clean when using the tank sprayer.
