I just grab my Tool Box and toss it in the bed of the truck. It has everything I need (so far) to make a repair if need be.

The one tool I needed and didn't have at the time was a wrench to tighten the trailer ball that came loose after several years use! Its inexpensive and in the trailer ball section at Wal-Mart and can be a life saver if you need it.

Walmart-Lowes-and the camp store are not ever very far away...

If I run into something that broke that I didnt have a tool for then I go knocking on trailer doors haha... Someone usually has what I can borrow. Then I go buy one and throw it in the RV TOOL Box.

I'm one for being into PLAN Bs big time but the downside is getting to be having enough room for the things you think you will need.

Basically you just really need enough tools and items to be able to get you back home .. i.e. never mess with the truck start battery haha... It's there to get you home...

Make sure that you put all of your junk tools in it, Not your Craftsman or Snap-on or Mac etc. in that box, so if it grows legs and runs away, you don't loos thousands of green stamps worth of tools....

Get a roll of silicone rescue tape. I got mine at Harbor Freight but can't find it online. Home Depot and other stores sell the tape.

The stuff really works. I have a swivel joint of my LPG line wrapped right now. I need to remember to get a new line by spring.
