A trailer tongue jack stand! (Camping World). We tried carrying blocks of wood but they're heavy and unwieldy. Bought a jack stand first thing and love it. Fits in the storage box, easy to use and light weight. Only problem is, we drove away without it on our last trip ....

If you're staying in the States after pickup on your first day South, at Burlington WA, is a Camping World. You'll likely spend your first night some where nearby as many others have. So the saving grace is almost immediately after you get your hands on the trailer and spend a night in it a store that probably has everything you'll need, and more is right there.

How do you know what to know if you don't have a clue as to what to you don't know?

Well, let's see: You don't know what you don't know, because you don't know it. Nor have you even heard of it.
So, you do join the appropriate forum, for the purpose of obtaining clues as to what you should know, that you don't already know. But you know that, which is why you joined this forum.

Bonus: you get to use these:

Yup, today's my day!!!
And thank goodness for this forum.
Somehow though, just when I think I have a handle on everything, new things arise. My Build Sheet is due 7/30 - at some point I'm just going to have to close my eyes and jump.

That is just about the way it works out. No matter how hard you try, something more is jumping out at you. Getting done with the build sheet felt like getting the taxes done for the year. Good luck Ellen. Loren

If you're getting the Anderson hitch, you'll need either a large adjustable wrench or 3/8 in ratchet (they give you the socket, not sure what size)

The trailer includes a crank to raise and lower the jacks, so you'll only need the 3/4 socket if you lose the crank.

If you're getting a water hose, go with 50'. Not all campgrounds, particularly on the east coast, have the water and electric where they should be.
