I keep a nice tool set in the forward storage place that has all the sockets, pliers, wrenches (metric/sae), allen wrenches and hammer just in case I need to fix something or tighten something. I hate it when I need to fix something and find out I don't have the right tool to do it. I don't have a complete mechanics set in the trailer but all your basic tools including Duct Tape of course...

Speaking of Harbor Freight......I bought their complete tool set (I think it was $300 and some change) and it stays in the coach. It's entire purpose in life is for the coach and nothing but the coach.

I add the cordless drivers and a selection of screws, bolts, washers and duct tape.

I suspect I have everything in the tool box that I could probably overhaul the engine on the side of the road if I needed to.

Basically did the same, just bought a couple of their smaller sets to get what I wanted!

I keep it all in a small boater's dry box which is the size of small military ammo can, for all you Veteran's out there.

I hit a good Craftsman sale and bought a kit for the RV. Added some larger wrenches from my main tool kit. Only thing that does double duty at the moment is my cordless drill.

My tools bought at Harbor Freight Tools is still intact in my motor home. I would not be without it. It contains all the usual tools and socket set.
