The first must haves I discovered was a water pressure valve,
Different lengths of drinking water hoses. And a 30 amp extension
cord. Use the extension more than I thought I would.

A light for outside when sitting outside at night-Coleman gas or propane if you plan to boondock a lot or electric if you stay where there are amenities. I'm not sure anyone mentioned flashlight(s) and batteries, ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL. And in my case, a 4-cup Mr. Coffee maker. Without that, none of the other tools work very well!

A wiring diagram that you have made! I found that my original wiring was a mess. Step one was to trace where all wires went. Doing this gave a much more intimate knowledge not only of the electrical system but also about a lot of other ins and outs concerning the workings of my Scamp 13 ('93). There are many of the same things that a person might have to fix while on the road.

Help a newbie here please. What does the water pressure valve do? I'm about to purchase a 13' scamp - do I need to get a pressure valve?

thanks

David it regulates the water pressure going into the trailer. Hopefully preventing your water connections inside the trailer from being blown apart due to the pressure from the campground you are connected to being to high.

Makes sense. Thanks.
I gather some trailers have this as standard equipment. Anyone know if this is the case with new scamps?

The one I have is a in-line valve I got at Walmart.

Camco 40055 Brass Water Pressure Regulator - Walmart.com

I am not sure which new trailers have or don't have built in regulators. Most people I know just buy one as posted above from walmart or camping world and leave it attached to the hose so you use it each time you attach the water hose.
