We also ordered:
1.Honey wagon (we camp in lots of state parks with power but no water or sewer onsite)
2.Extra sewer hoses, a expanding sewer hose support.
3.Extra sewer fittings (clear) to make sure our tanks were good and clean when dumping.
4.Different size patio mats for different conditions.
5.Leveling pads & jack pads in different sizes.
6.Had levels mounted to front and side so I didn't have to run in and out with a torpedo level on the galley counter.
7.Extra battery added for using furnace when stopping for the night in cold weather.
8.Aluminum truck box mounted to tongue of trailer for batteries and extra storage.

I would also carry electric heaters so you don't have to always run the furnace.

We camp quite a bit and a lot of the stuff we ordered I always wanted (just not always bad enough to spend the money). So when we ordered the new unit I figured I would get everything I could to make things easier and more enjoyable. For us camping is vacation and the less time we spend setting up and tearing down the more time we have to relax and enjoy the kids.
Did you actually order all this when you bought your RV? These do not sound like "options" offered by Jayco or a dealer. These are items you can order online or pick up at any Camping World or most at Walmart for a lot less than what a dealer would charge. Not a bad list of "Mods" but they are not optional adds to a new RV.

I would suggest buying bedding, cooking/eating supplies, towels, cleaning product, etc. that you can leave in the trailer so that you don't have to load and unload everything when its time to hit the road. We only have to pack clothes and food most of the time when its go time!

The first thing I've done after getting my trailer was to swap an OEM fan for a maxxfan. It is not only useful in the summer but also in winter. Went camping near a ski resort in PA in December last year. Temperature was around 23 day and 17 night for three days. First night, had a dihumidifier on to prevent condensation, did not work that well. After that I turned the maxxfan on low and left it on for the remaining of the trip. What a difference in condensation amount. Had furnace as a secondary heat source, mostly run on electric heaters staying around 68 inside, the trailer is 33 feet long and the fan is located at the end of it , in the bathroom. That's how powerful it is. Get on

I really enjoy the electric jack and cordless drill with socket for the stabilizers.

X2 on bedding and kitchen supplies.

RV bathroom paper, scent tablets for the tanks, broom and dustpan, electric space heater, rugs, table and grill for outside cooking, tools, extra fuses, bug repellant, FIRST AID KIT, and the list goes on.

Congrats on your new camper. Hope you enjoy it.
