What's in your emergency kit?

Putting together our roadside emergency kit and wondering what more experienced RVers have that we might miss.

LED flares
toolkit (screwdrivers, wrenches)
hand warmers
duct tape
seatbelt cutter/window hammer
jumper cables

(our tires already have a sort of fix-a-flat built in, or we'd have that, and we do have a spare tire)

In yours?

Credit card and a bottle of Advil.

Safety vest, led flashlight, surplus poncho to wear or lay on, and a pair of gloves like these.

A torque wrench, extender and a socket that will fit your lug nuts. I assume you have a jack and such with the Ford chassis if not add a bottle jack of the correct capacity for your rig.

A roll of stainless steel wire.
Assortment of cable ties, especially some larger 18 to 24 inch heavy duty.
Assortment of screws, nuts/bolts, washers. (smaller size, like what you'd find in an rv)
One's I carry are stainless steel.
Assortment of fuses (whatever is in your rig), and a few extra mini circuit breakers (my Lexi uses them). Also, some 10 foot lengths of 10,12 14, 16 guage electric wire.
Bottle of Weldwood Contact Cement.
An assortment of stright and angle push on (sharkbite) fittings and some lengths of pex for emergency plumbing repair.
Small camp saw and hatchet. Small breaker bar.
Some xtra everyday type stuff that always seems to go bad, the rubber hose end washers, some drawer latches, batteries, ect.
And, of course the usual tool kit, drill, air compressor, ect.

Living in So Cal our coach is is always stocked with a complete Red Cross first aid kit, (see the American Red Cross Site American Red Cross | Help Those Affected by Disasters ). Look in the Red Cross Store (Emergency Prepardness section) For the kits you can buy or build your own using these as a guide. Ask your doctor for a backup subscription of your meds (blood pressure, diabetes etc...) if needed and don't forget to rotate these. Tools, food and water bottles are a must. We are setup for a bug out if needed. We have old clothes, shoes and things for the fur children (don't forget their needs). Keep rig stocked for a fast getaway in case of emergency (Fire, earthquake, tornado, hurricane or mother-in law coming over) Sorry had to lighten this up. If you think you may need it pack it. Rather throw it away than wish you had it. And I agree with grumpy0374s list. Safe travels

I also have this item that will assist with a flat tire:

Trailer-Aid - Camco 24 - Towing Accessories - Camping World

You can just drive up the ram with a good tire (assuming a tandem axle configuration).
