My wife and I bought our first RV in the middle of the season last year and only were able to go out on a couple of trips-- one of which had us boondocking overnight in sub-freezing conditions (very late in the season).

But with only two real trips under our belt, we didn't really get a good feel for those awsome RV accessories that would make the experience even more enjoyable. So, I want to know, what items (or even handy tricks) do you use that you simply can't do without?

For that matter, what are some of the items that you thought were really cool when you saw them, but once you tried to use them weren't so cool after all?

So all you experienced RVers out there, lend a word or two of wisdom to us newbies. And help us find those nice toys we need while avoiding those we would only be wasting money on.

I have to agree with rangiebob that there are and have been some great ideas on this thread. Now I want to ask, what items might one be needing when taking the RV to a beach area?

First item is not what you take, but what is there. Since the beaches around here are about 100 degrees, you want shore power so you can run the A/C.

Now, what I must have at a beach CG:

1. Awning tie downs - since it's going to be so hot, I really want to have my awning out and not worry about it when that afternoon thunderstorm with the high winds comes through.
2. Indoor cookware - most of my camping is in the mountains, and I do most of my cooking outside. Since it's going to be so hot at the beach, I'd rather cook in the A/C.
3. Outdoor shower for everybody after they have been on the beach - if you don't have an outdoor shower, get a Y connector for your water and hose everybody off before they go inside.
4. Sunscreens and hats - the dermatologist is constantly cutting on me - that's what happens when you grew up on a beach in the 60's with red hair.
5. Salt water tackle.
6. A way to make a decent pot of coffee (that goes for any CG).
7. Cold adult beverages (see number 6).
