Default New Camper Nice to Have

So-seems like a lot of people new to the whole camper culture have one question: "What do I need to bring with me?" So the dishes and silverware, pots & pans, towels and stuff, a few tools are mostly common sense.
I created this starter list: http://a.co/iDPomMv
Maybe it will help someone.

Suggestions? Let me know I can add it.

I would add leveler ( or is this common sense?). Great starter list!

Leveling scissor jack socket to use with drill

First aid kit
command strips to hang any artwork.
Refrigerator thermometers (2)

1. Four way tire wrench to change flat tire on camper
2. 2 ton hydraulic jack (for changing flat tires)
3. Ratchet and a socket to fit anode rod on water heater
4. Leveling pads
5. Plan to get a decent mattress and discard the crappy factory one(s).
6. Black/grey water treatment
7. RV toilet tissue
8. Sodium Diclor to sanitize fresh water tank, no chlorine stink and only a teaspoon to 100 gallons of water. Cheap & A small bottle lasts several seasons.
9. RV Surge Guard protector. Surge Guards, Surge Protectors, Voltage Converter, 30-50 Amp Surge Guards - Camping World
10. Spare fuses, elect tape, duct tape, light bulbs, misc tools.

and any 'creature comforts' of your preference.

I'd add to the 90 degree elbow to make it a clear one. In fact, a clear one at each end of the slinky.

Gloves and a bottle of bleach water for connecting at site and use at dump station

We've used homemade leveling boards, the yellow leveling blocks, and now the Anderson camper levelers. These last are soooo much easier than anything else and take up less room in the passthrough. Not good for a deeply unlevel area, but then the others aren't either. https://www.amazon.com/Andersen-Hitc...v+tire+leveler

water pressure gauge so you can see what it is coming out of the faucet and going into the trailer.
