Tool Kit

As dreams of camping fill my head I'm also thinking of what to stock my A-122s. What does everyone have for an essential tool kit?

Bit screwdriver set with a #2 square bit (S2).
Power drill with 25-50 foot extension cord.

For when you need both hands free.

Duct tape, spare fuses and bulbs

That and bring a jack that can lift your camper and get a digital multimeter and know how to use it.

Hello Trailer Girl,
A Frame needs for tools. I would have a couple adjustable wrenches, a screwdriver set or good quality Quic Pic multi driver, corded 3/8 drill, vice grips, utility knife, cutter, needle nose pilers and wire stripper, a rubber mallet, hatchet for firewood, wrench for wheel lugs. One thing essential is a Digital Multi meter and a non contact voltage tester. Not sure of your skill level but have electrical tape to fix a harness if it gets scraped, some hose gear clamps to fix a leak, duct tape, piece of plastic (in case of a puncture wound you can weather proof till repairs can be completed. As far as lubes, some WD 40 for squeaky door hedges or locks, small bit of grease for the hitch.

This should fit in a canvas tool bag, will allow you to stuff it any where.

Safe travels with your A Frame

Make sure you have a lug wrench that fits your RV. Many times those supplied with the TV will not fit.

Also some emergency triangles if you breakdown on the road.


I'm a little too truthful, I guess.
