What three spare parts/tools are must haves on the road

What three spare parts or tools are must haves in (on) the coach while on the road. Beer does not count as we all know it is a food group...

I always have:
Spare water filter housing, no housing no water
Extra blue ox bumper lug, without two funtional lugs no toad
Electric impact wrench for toad flats, use once thus far

What say you?

The things you listed would be way down on my list of MUST haves.
I kinda agree with the battery powered impact, but a good set of end wrenches would come before that. and a couple pair of channel-locks would be near the top.

If we're talking spare parts, then I'd say a good spare tire would top the list.

I would say must have's are
8 ton bottle jack
good lug nut wrench
one of those 149 piece tool kits in a plastic case
one extra item is a selection of wire connectors,terminal ends and crimpers with a couple rolls of wire in a plastic storage case

Extra credit card. I'll explain. I put $139 of fuel in at Tampa in November. Went on to a truck wash 30 minute later. Card was rejected.

I called card company a couple days later. They asked if I charged $139 I said yes. Then they wanted to know if I charged another $500 at same station at same time. Oops. Nope!!!

So that's a good reason to have more than one credit card.

IMO, the top three things to take on the road is;
A good attitude, A forgiving wife, and foremost is extra time. My short experience says any of those three missing will make for a miserable trip.

As far as tools go, a membership card to a good service company and a wide open credit card makes it all bearable...

I second the second credit card, good idea. I use a 120v impact running off my genny. Also carry a spare water filter screen fixture. I dont want remove the big whole house water filter but I would love to have a clear stubby cap to use in place of the plastic beast....
