In my humble experience, every tool you don't take with you, you will need sooner or later. My TT toolbox is much better than most have at home. I'm just that way.
Make sure you have wrenches and socket for changing a tire. Spare hose clamps in different sizes. At least one tube of "GOOP". A wire splice kit with pliers, butt splices and end fittings. Sooner or later, a wire connection will need to be fixed.
Oh yes, almost forgot the most important tool of all----a big hammer!
Good luck.

I agree with Mike.t "Never enough".

Does anyone carry a pex crimper and fittings/hose...or can old fashioned screw clamps serve for repairs?

I take everything that has been mention (except the welder) plus every type of sealant and easterbond tape and 2 different meters, wax and cleaners. I use the whole front compartment for my tool bin and it is full. You just never know what you will need or maybe another camper that you can help out. Must be over 100 lbs. of stuff. Can fix and wire anything. It's a little excessive but I learned you never know and I try to be self sufficient. Learn that boating, never count on anyone but yourself when your 200 miles off shore and something breaks.

I have numerous gear clamps. They can fix anything, if a awning breaks I can clamp it together till we get home. Have Clamp On Ammeter, standard Digtial VOM, wire crimp kit, tape and sealant, a couple 9 by 10 tarps in case of a hole in the roof or damaged vent, rope, electrical ends for twist lock, silicone and entrabond and pipe dope. Sockets, Torque Wrench, wrenches, drill & bits, hack and buck saw, axe and hatchet, screw drivers, pliers etc.
Much like Glen my front compartment is tool bay, hose and electrical cords etc.

A $30 craftsman socket, screwdriver & box end wrench kit.
Air compressor & tire plug kit.
Multimeter, fuses, tape.
90 mile per hour tape (AKA duct tape).
hammer.
razor knife.
Teflon tape.
Pliers.
18V drill with socket for stabilizers.


Lots of good ideas in this thread. I'll be adding a few things to my kit.

All of my leaks have been with PEX clamps. Only use worm clamps and I carry at least 2 of every size up to 6 inches in diameter.

That's funny cuz I carry one too and extra red and blue pipe as well as fittings. I do not carry my engine hoist or stand there in storage with two full rolling tool boxes, I could probably disassemble and reassemble my trailer with most of what I got in storage. But that's a whole nother thread.
