I carry a caulking gun with a tube of Dicor Lap Sealant for the same reason. A daub under the tear to keep it waterproof and the tape on top for a permanent fix.

I carry a small tube of white flexible sealant for the vertical seams (like around the windows and doors) again something you might need in a hurry if rain is forecast.



I carry two rolls of "Gorilla Tape" (speed tape; 100 MPH tape; etc) for mishaps on the road.

I carry various lengths of ZIP ties (up to 36 inches) and find I need them every trip for some project or expedient.

Would go no where without my DeWalt 1/2 inch battery drill and good bit and socket sets.

I am never without my pop rivet gun and an assortment of pop rivets and washers. I seem to repair at least one person's awning every trip!

Soldering gun and acid core solder, wire cutters, needle nose, 3/8 drive socket set (metric and SAE), hammer, short pry bar, one of those cool multi-use screw drivers, Channel Lock Pliers, and an assortment of fasteners.

For plumbing, I have an assortment of hose adapters, Y shutoff valves, and repair parts. ALWAYS buy brass! Those plastic ones get brittle and you do not need a waterfall at 3 AM.

Somebody stop me!!!
Are you sure you're not pulling an extra

JJvike, I attended Freightliner Camp, as did others here. We were advised to carry the following: 1). Serpentine Belt
2). Fuel Filter
3). Fuel filter/water separator
4). Filtration wrench

In addition, I also carry a cable for the wardrobe slide, as well as tools already mentioned and plastic gloves for messing with the battery and the black water tank.

OK, I'll go ahead and be the first to admit;

I'm waiting for OC to post his supply list!


Y'all might as well go ahead and admit the same.


AND, I'll admit I just jumped over on eBay and bought a roll of eternabond tape. Thanks for the heads-up Herk!

I was actually surprised at what all DH had thought to stock. Of course I *knew* he was going to get himself a new wireless grill. Just told me this past weekend that he likes the new one he bought for the RV so much he thinks he needs a new one just like it for his shop.

But, he's got fuses galore, volt meter, I asked wmtire to pick up one of those infrared thermometers for us (he's a trooper), he's got an entirely outfitted tool box including all those odd shaped screwdriver/drill bit heads...yanno those "let's see if this sucker's got *THIS* one" type screws they put in our RVs. He has a torque wrench he keeps in the TV. Did that before we ever went on our shakedown with the V-Lite. I'm downright impressed with 'im, I tell ya.

Oh, yeah....I forgot....he's got that all important roll of duct tape as well as Teflon tape.
