A trailer level is a cheap accessory that will greatly improve your quality of life, and takes a lot of the guesswork and worry out of leveling your trailer. You’ll be able to discern if your fifth wheel trailer is level on every side, all without a spotter.

3. A longer extension cord

Your RV may already have a 25-foot extension cord, and you may think this is good enough. However, what if there’s a circumstance where you need to plug into your campground’s power source and your just a little too far away. A longer extension cord will greatly come in handy. A longer cord will come in handy when you need it the most. Even if you just end up using it once, you’ll be glad you took the time to pick up a longer cord.

4. Crock Pot

A crockpot can be a delicious addition to your RV trips. Most meals on the road are cooked from the grille, stove or microwave. However, if you really want to cook up some home cooked meals you may want to look into a 12-volt crock pot. That way you can cook up come amazing meals, without having to stay back at the RV all day.

An extra sewer hose will definitely come in handy in a time of need. There are many ways your current sewer hose can become damaged and you’ll want to ensure you’re not out of luck when this happens. Pick one up from your local RV supply outlet.
