I used to carry a lot of spare parts and tools, but I cut back to a pair of channel locks, a crescent wrench, a #2 square screwdriver, a box cutter, an obd2 scanner, and a lug wrench. All the other stuff was dead weight and cut into my towing capacity. For spare parts I carry fuses, hose clamps, crimp connectors, bungee cords, 9v battery in case the co detector beeps, and a tube of dicor. Never needed more than that for field repairs in 10 years or rving. If I take bikes along I add a tire patch kit and pump.

Make a list of the 12 volt DC fuses, buy the appropriate ones.
Lamps, go through rig and write down bulb numbers, carry spares. Don't forget tail/brake lights
Tools will be next issue to make list of.
Test light
Multi-tip screwdriver
lug wrench that fits
Jack
Air pressure gauge


I agree with this.

While making up your binder is not new and I did put if off many times, what convinced me was some people that their water pump didn't work and they had no idea what to do or even where pump was located. You don't have to be a "master" mechanic" by any means but being at the mercy of others is not a good feeling either.


Luckily my fiancé is a bit of a McGyver. He claims he can fix anything and so far he seems to be correct. :-) This weekend, we were on the water in his boat and the water pump to fill up his fat sack stopped working. He re-wired it with no tools or tape in about 5 minutes and it worked fine. On the other hand, on the way home he had a blow out on his boat trailer. Guess what? No spare tire. I mean, whut? LOL


Um,,,, I hope that you are not saying something bad about your boyfriends personal health/body shape..... What is a Fat Sack ???

A Fat Sac is a ballast bag for a boat. It is used to tune the boat's wake for optimal wakeboarding.
