Along with a couple of flashlights with fresh batteries. Also carry extra quart of Shell Rotella oil as it is not always available, only needed it once on the pull through the Rockies and Yellowstone. Altitude I guess. Extra def, for the desired. Along with insurance papers on both tv and tt, carry registration and maintence records. One thing I forgot but no more is Peppers, our dogs vet records. Must have it you cross borders to get back into US.

Also a great idea when biking. Dual purpose!

There is no way I am going to fix a flat or some other issue on the roadway with traffic zipping by at 70+ mph.
You forgot your Coach Net card

Always carry a vest and always road side triangle reflectors as well as fluorescent cones. Can't overdo it on safety.

I agree, nothing I want to do beside busy highway. Been there, done that. Now use cell phone and road side service. With the class A, call road service, start gen., aim Sat., watch television. Done it more than once. Saves the nerves and blood pressure.

I learned a lesson last trip: carry even MORE tools. I needed a 3/4" socket wrench w/ 6" extension to manually stow away my satelitte dish when it broke on me.

Check out the link below for the best safety vest for visibility and less chance of injury. Velcro at the shoulders, side seams and front allow for the vest to quickly and safely tear away if it gets caught on anything without injury to the wearer. The back has an 'X' pattern for the reflective, so other drivers can tell that you the wearer cannot see them (mandatory here in Canada), and the 4" wide reflective provides much better visibility. These can be found at retailers and distributors throughout Canada and USA. (I cant figure out how to insert images or I would)

That's a great idea, along with the vest. Not a mod, but definitely next purchase along with triangles.
Thinking it's not a matter of IF, but a matter of WHEN.
