In line water filter
RV antifreeze, incold weather dump all tanks and open low drains, drain hot water heater,leave prv open on hwh. use water pump to siphon rv antifreeze thru [pipes and out of all faucets.. About a gallon should do all pipes. Pour some in the traps and on top of the toilet gate. You should be able to valve off water heater so nor antifreeze for that.
Black water tank needs tank enzymes,powder or liquid
Battery charger/small generator if remote camping.
Spare light bulbs
In warmer weather dump your hot water heater when you are not using. If you leavre water in it unheated it will have a chemical reaction to the zinc parts of the tank and the next time you use it with the old water it will smell like sulpher. Not harmful, just stinks. remedy is to fill hot water heater with water and a teaspoon of bleach , let it sit for a few hours,flush. Do this anyway at the beginning of the season to sterilize the holding tank and hwh
You will expand the list as you use the camper more.
