List of Accessories, what I got so far...

I just got a 2020 [email protected] Edge and thought this list of gear I've been getting might be useful. I hope you enjoy it. (I don't get credit for the links; I only wanted to help you save some time since I spent so much doing research). You probably already have this gear. I'm just a newbie who needed to go shopping and had savings for it. Feel free to let me know any thoughts and suggestions.

    Thanks for sharing your list.
    On the things you are thinking of getting, my top choices would be a refrigerator/freezer like the Norcold 30, A lithium battery like the brand you mention and a generator.
    I think I would stay away from a 12-volt heater, as they consume too much energy. A small 360 watt one would pull in the range of 30 amps (12 volt). On a cold night/morning, you would likely burn through your full battery capacity. As a comparison, a Norcold NRF-30 uses around 4.3 amps.
    If you were to get a lithium battery, you may wish/need to consider a solar panel with a controller. The need for another solar panel would depend on the type of camping you do and if your current 100-watt panel for your Jackery could be adapted for your trailer. (You should be able to add a controller for <$55) If your camping is without shore power for multiple days in a row a passive method of recharging your trailer battery with a solar panel is better in my mind than running a generator or your vehicle for recharge purposes.
    As for a generator, take a look at what accessories you want to power at the same time. For me it is really just the AC unit. (I have a 5-wide with no microwave). My AC pulls a little less than 500 watts (110-volt). The converter pulls another 15 watts. My generator is a propane powered 700/900 watt unit. It does the trick, but a little more would allow for some more breathing room. You may be able to get by with a 1,400 watt generator. The difference using Predator as an example, could save $150 and reduce the weight from 49lbs. to 33lbs.
    Happy camping, and once again thanks for your listing along with the appropriate links. Good Job!

    Thanks for the very helpful list of accessories! I just bought a TAG 2022 with the boondock and convenience packages and am getting accessories. Here are a few notes:

    1. This might be better option for a refrigerator: ACOPower LiONCooler 42 Qt. Battery Powered Portable Chest Fridge Freezer with 10+ Hour Run Time and DC/AC Solar Panel. At least, I'm considering it.
    2. I just bought this wheel lock: Trimax TCL75 Deluxe Universal Wheel Chock Lock-Yellow/Red.
    3. I substituted this battery for the one that would have been supplied by NuCamp.: Renogy Deep Cycle AGM 12 Volt 100Ah Battery w/Box.

    I just bought a 2020 Boondock Edge, and installed a BougeRV 28 L fridge/freezer. Love it! Lightweight, and since I live in TX, a cooler doesn't cut it for perishables. I'll mostly stay at electric sites until cooler weather. TY for your list!
