I carry a 12 foot folding ladder. Makes a 6 foot steep ladder or folds up to less than 4 foot. Before I got slide awnings, it was a must to clear slides before closing. Got caught in a pine thicket once, no fun getting slides closed. Another item needed in the fall, electric leaf blower to remove leaves around the campsite! Also multi bit set, most of small screws on Flagstaff are square drive and Phillips.

My husband put himself through law school as a mechanic, so I have a large yellow tool box filled with everything you could think of from Metric and Amercian sockets with all the different size handles, screw drivers in different sizes to fit in certain areas, hammer, wrenches, zip ties, wire cutters, drill/screw gun, duck tape, box cutters, electrical tape, every fuse possible, extra keys, hack saw, electric light bulbs, etc. or as he puts it everything a mechanic needs. One of my friends got stuck at an agility trial and right away one of the guys there said go find Deb, her RV is equipment with everything. Once my satellite got stuck in the up position while in Florida and I had to climb up and lower by hand, if I did not have what I travel with I would of had to call someone luck me, I was also brought up in the car business so learned a lot from my father and all the workers.

The most important tool you need is a #2 square screwdriver.

Why can't they just use a regular Phillips screw like the rest of America?

I asked my wife if I can buy a welding kit for the RV so now, I'm apparently, "ridiculous"

For those who are not familiar with the best screwdriver ever invented...#2 Robertson is the one with the RED handle.

When you say "America" you say US.
Here in Canada, wich by the way is still "America" the square Robertson screw are by far the most popular and used.
No offence !
