Amp probe-get two of them and know how to use them, Not all electrical outlets are the same, especially in the heat.

Air compressor, Full tool box of: wrenches, screw drivers, alum wrenches, tapes, wire ties, fuses, extra towels, gloves, tire tools that fit, cordless drill an extra battery and charger, box cutter, exacto knife, caulk, roof caulk, screws, bolts, wire cutters - needle nose and snub nose, Extra umbrellas- sometimes it rains when you need repairs, drill bits, Large and small channel locks, battery cleaners, hammers, small sledge hammer, small axe, thread seal tape, silicone sprays...

Basically build yourself an "RV tool" box and don't borrow from it.

Good Luck.

I have found that a collapsible 6' ladder is a neat tool to have. It collapsible to only about 4" thick. I strap it to my rear bumper.

I carry most of the items listed and agree that I'd rather have it (especially on long trips) and not have to use it. I'm sure it's more than I need since we're never far from the stores. My current camper is still new, but I had to fix something on the last one every time I took it out. I bought new everything and leave the new stuff on the camper. You don't need a lot of big heavy tools, you can get it down to or under 50 pounds of tools. I have a tote full of parts which are just as important as tools; tire repair, leak repair, tapes, fuses, straps, tarp, etc.

OMG after reading Mike's reply I said wait, my RV is loaded, not only a tool box, but jumpers, air compressor, ladder, generator oil, filer, batteries, flash lights, Lanterns, Floral knife, floral cutter, Gator knife, tarps. BBQ with small propane tank, step stool for inside, I'm short. Plenty of distilled water because I travel with dogs, extra cooler because it is loaded with raw food for the dogs. And let me tell you 3 ex-pens, soft crates towels galore, pool for the dogs, Antifreeze, window washer, extra engine oil, 3 30amp cords, 3 sets of water hoses, extra parts for the water heater and the wrench, etc for it. White chasing for the roof, clear for the bathroom etc. finishing nails, just in case molding pops off, extra wiring for the satellite. Had all the batteries replace with water free, so I don't have to check, levels, air tire tools, 2 umbrellas, rubber boots, lots of rags, etc. I carry so much equipment, my sister a seasonal RV'r for 13 years said I'm nuts, but I spent almost every weekend on the road by myself with the dogs

Just Duct tape & WD40...
As they say...
If it's supposed to move but does't... use WD40. If it moves but should not... use duct tape.

Seriously, most of the few tools I do carry in the TT come from Harbor Freight... If it gets lost or stolen, no big deal😊

If you need expendable tools nothing better then harbor freight. I have a few I use for sacrificial use including but not limited to heatin and bendin, cutting and welding ,using the "it WILL fit hammer" on them.
