The Vegas 25.2 is ordered

Just waiting for them to install the mods. (HWH levelers and Roadmaster sway bars). I will,be picking it up remotely and drive it home. What tools, cables, hoses, etc. should I bring with me for the maiden voyage?

For the tool box

Basic set of hand tools to include sockets, screwdrivers and pliers. For the screwdriver you may want to have one that has interchangeable bits. I found Phillips, square and star head bit screws on my coach. Have a set of channel lock pliers large enough to tighten sink drain connects.

***Tire Pressure Gauge***

Parts and supplies

In line water filter if your coach does not have a whole house filter
Electrical and Teflon tape
Assortment of automotive blade type fuses
Y fitting for water hose if your coach has a black tank flush
Extra water hose if the coach has a black tank flush
Rubber hose o rings / washers

Required for campground connections

Surge Protector (hooking up without one is at your risk)
Water hose
Sewer hose and connections
Sewer hose support to properly angle the sewer hose along its run
Leveling blocks (even with a leveling system). Some campgrounds prohibit leveling jack pads in direct contact with soft surfaces

And then, if all this fails, you'll need the "bigger hammer"

I'm sure others will have recommendations as well and I am sure I forgot to mention something.

I didn't know remote control was an option! Cool.

Silly remarks aside: Dave is correct you need a set of square bits--there are a lot of them in the Axis units. I don't think there is a single straight or Philips screw in the unit.

If you have a black tank flush, make your flush hose a different color from your fresh water hose (more for peace of mind than really for safety).
