That's a pretty open ended question. The best answer is that 'it depends'. How do you intend to use your trailer? Campgrounds? RV Parks? Dry camping? Some campgrounds have all the amenities, electric, water, sewer, cable TV, wifi etc. Others not so much. US Forest Service and some state campgrounds don't have any hookups so you need to bring your own water & find a dump station somewhere to empty the black/grey water tanks. For dry camping you might consider a generator to run AC or microwave and recharge batteries. Here's a site with lots of tips and some checklists to get you started:

Mostly at the RaceTrack. Some tracks have more amenities than others. Going down to Jennings, FL this weekend and i am pretty sure they don't even have water hookups...

I guess since this is the maiden voyage, i'm just looking for some general tips.

To be honest, i need to go see what's in the trailer -- not sure but i think i need to get at least:

- 2x6 boards for stablizers
- wheel chocks
- some strategy for tying down things inside (i assume ill be stacking stuff on the bed and dinette and floor of kitchen, etc.
- etc.

Have never done the racetrack thing, but I can see where RV hookups probably aren't going to be availabe. Sounds like you'll be dry camping more or less. You might want to grab a bottle or two of deodorant for the waste tanks and couple longer 2x6's for leveling under the trailer wheels.
