FFHarrison -
First, to the forum -- glad you found us. Secondly, your question about stocking and outfitting an RV has been asked and discussed here on the forum numerous times before so I would suggest as a start that you Google "Outfitting an RV". There are many sites that can be found which will give you lots of suggestions.
The same with maintenance. Try Google ( a search for RV Maintenance) - there is so much information already out there.

Hope this helps.

Welcome to the forum and there are many things you will need including the basics like a drinking water hose, sewer hose kit, basic cooking and eating items, bedding etc. There are also many items you will find useful like an onboard water filter if not equipped with one, trailer leveling boards and stabilizer blocks. Assorted electrical adapters for plugging in the shore power and I keep a basic assortment of tools, fasteners, and gizmos/widgets based on past experience. I would recommend the first couple of camping trips be near a big box store where you can acquire things you discover will make the experience more enjoyable. Others will come along and add to the list and I will think of some more also. If you need further explanation of these items I am sure we can be more specific. Just ask away.
