    Accessories

    What accessories come with the purchase of a new Momentum? Water hose, sewer hose, electrical connections, etc?

    There is a 36 foot electrical cord, you need to get the other external hookup items.

    I recommend Viper sewer hoses and Valterra water hoses.

    You will also want wheel chocks for your initial setup. From there it's up to you.

    Accessories

    If you will camp in areas that only provide 30 amp service, you'll also need a dogbone for 50 -30. You'll also want a surge protector. They're pricy but most of us use them and mine has saved me several times. Progressive is the most used but there are others.

    On water hoses, I'd recommend getting 2 25' hoses. In most areas, one will be enough, BUT we've had several long runs in the last year where I needed my 2nd hose. I'd also get a water pressure reducer - 1 to 55psi should be fine. You'll want to use it every time. I keep it attached to my main hose. Also a "y" water adapter will come in handy to allow you to connect a 2nd hose to wash your rig, attach to the sewer flush valve, etc.
    Sorry for the length.

    The last three trailers I bought, the dealer gave us a start up kit, with a cheap sewer hose, some holding tank chemical, and maybe a short RV water hose to get you started.

    I would get a water pressure regulator. example: http://www.rvpartscountry.com/RVWaterPressureRegulator
    A good RV water hose
    A good sewer hose
    Surge protection. example: http://www.campingworld.com/category...rotection/1312

    Then what ever you would like after that.
    We have a Weber Q 2000 that we grill on. A nice outdoor area rug/mat for under the awning. A small folding table.

    When I picked up the new Solitude last week I told the PDI guy just to keep the startup kit. If you are just starting out it might last until you get better. Good suggestions above.

    Definitely get the clear gate for the "dump" hose. Not really pleasant to look at but it is a great help to tell you that your black tank is getting pretty clean!!!
