Ive seen a 12 guage or handguns mentioned a couple of times. Probably will never need but it sure does help you sleep better at night.

I haven't read this whole discussion thread ... so maybe these have been mentioned:

One's RV should have:

1. A built-in, or brought along - roof access ladder.

AND

2. A roll of 4 inch wide Eternabond tape.

Any thoughts on the 211vdbx? I just bought one. I’m staying on some land near the dealer for now while I learn the ropes but will eventually go up into lassen forest once the fires are out.

A potable small sewer tote thing. And small and light enough to throw in the SUV.

My advice is not to throw the tote when placing it into the tow vehicle. [emoticon]

Done!!

I don't feel too bad when there are RV's near by, but when someone throws up a tent, I tend to feel bad for them.

Last year camping, a few near by with tents. Poring rain, we were watching movies, taking showers, enjoying the camper. I felt really bad for the neighbors...

When boondocking way out there on the Far Side of Beyond, you should have the knowledge and stuff along to repair a large variety of things in your rig.

Our rig has wiring and plumbing in behind cabinets, so I carry along a remote inspection scope so I can take a look into difficult to see areas to check things out if something is acting up.
