    - spare tools and fuses
    - extra propane bottle

    Two of them collapsable garbage bins; one for garbage and one for cans. They fold up flat so you can shove them under whatever.

    We have a solar panel that I picked up at Canadian Tire a few years ago.... Even on overcast days they still work. For $99 bucks and they work awesome. We open camp alot and never had a generator before.

    Re: Travel Trailer must haves

    I have dual 6volts I can use a 3 day weekend with no reguard for power leave the lights on for hours and hardly make a dent in it, single 12volt barely make a weekend and that was conserving power. The dual 6ers I would easily say 2-3 weeks conserving power. 1-12volt 120AH X 2-12 volt will still be 120AH in parallal 1-6volt 232AH 2-6 volt 464AH in series 4X the storage capacity. If you look at higher end units and motorhomes thay all run a bank of 6volts. 6ers will last years 5+ easily. They are taller and heavier you will get a hernia. Check out some facts online...rv.net is a good forum...whatta know I'm a member there too

    Thanks murm... Don't know much about the batterys. All I know is if we are not plugged in and using the one 12 volt battery we have, hard to make it on a 3 day weekend conserving power...
