I am selling my TT soon with plans to buy a Class A sometime this year. I am debating if I need to keep water hose, sewer hose and that type stuff or leave it with TT. Would you keep what you have? I know if and when I buy I will not want to use a water hose from someone else. Would it make sense to store at house somewhere for a few months up to six months and use them with new MH? What about wheel chocks and other essentials? What should I keep from TT to use in MH? not discussing linens, dishes, and that type stuff, just RV specific things.

Don't keep anything, especially if it might be 6 months before you will need it.

Keep it all.

I am curious about one thing, are you going to replace the fresh water tank and all the plumbing? What's the deal over the hose?

Keep electrical adapters, sewer connectors, (hose would be questionable), keep hoses and water connectors, blocks or pads used to stabilize trailer.

If you are trading it in the dealer will trash or remove anything left in it, including most times the manuals. So keep what ever you want to keep, since the next owner will be buying what he needs or be supplied a "starter kit" with purchase.

Whenever I've sold an RV in preparation for moving on to another one, I've left enough water and sewer hoses, etc. for a basic park hookup. Electrical adapters, extra hoses, etc., go with me to the next RV to augment or replace whatever comes with it. I've never had to store them for more than a week or so, but longer wouldn't be a problem. Twice we've swapped our existing mattress to the new RV, replacing it with the "new" one in the old RV. We've even swapped toilets twice now. Of course that means having the new RV on hand before parting with the old one.

ductape, no I am not going to replace the fresh water tank and all the piping, but I have more confidence that a simple sanitation will clean them, because they are less like to have been used for other purposes.. I am not sure the hose, which is a more porous material will sanitize the same.

Call me a scardy cat, but I work for DoD and use to buy hoses, connectors for water purification units and potable water pumps and tanks.. never could find any company that would sanitize hoses with any type guarantee that it was actually clean.

I am selling TT to an individual who already has a TT, just smaller and is ready to move up. I will be buying MH, when I find what I want at the price I can afford (hopefully before end of year)
