I also have what I call the big blue box. It's a big plastic thing with the clamp on lid. That's where everything goes like the hangy lights, barrel connectors, fuses. I haven't used anything in it the last four weeks I've been out camping. Never even opened it. I think I'm going to start weeding it out. It weighs almost 100 pounds.

You weed it out and you'll need it next time.

I keep a tool kit (one of those 150 piece kits). A tool box with other add on tools and specialty things like better pliers, silicone emergency repair tape, multi meter wiring tools. Keep an air compressor and fittings for tires and toys. Lots of Duck Tape, WD40 and a cheap drill that always seems to have a dead battery..

Don't forget the channel locks! I also keep an 18 V Harbor freight cordless drill, impact wrench and flashlight. On the impact wrench, it is only a quarter inch, I keep an extension and socket and use it to raise and lower my levelers. Saves a lot of time and work.


Also super or krazy glue as well as as epoxy to fix water leaks.
