Picking up new 30WRLIKS Saturday, one question

Very excited that the new trailer is finally in! Ordered in late July with some customs and it came in right when they estimated. Taken the last two months to get everything I think I need to get started.

25' total sewer hoses (Rhino)
X-Chocks
Dog bone for 50-30 amp
Linx levelers
35' water hose, inline filter, pressure reg, and "L" fitting for trailer
Patio mat
First aid kit
Extra fire extinguishers
And a ton of interior stuff for bed, bath, and kitchen

What I could use some input from everyone is a tool kit. I want to build a tool kit that stays in the TT or TV so I don't forget to grab stuff from my garage tool box, keep things from being forgotten this way. What are some of the crucial things you take along or wished you had?

Thanks for the help and for all the future questions I'm sure I'll be asking!

I keep a tool bag in the bed of my truck all the time. When you leave it in the TT, you will need it later somewhere else.

Off the top of my head, items in my tool kit (or tool cupboard) include:

Pliers - regular and needle-nosed, adjustable wrench, screwdriver with various bits, may add a small hammer and small vise grips
Small torpedo level, 1" hollow wall anchors, velcro, a few loose screws
Electrical tape, all amperages of fuses for my RV, fuse puller, multi-tester, couple spools of 14ga wire, AA and AAA batteries, zip ties, LED flashlight, work lamp and headband lamp
Duct tape, Eternabond, Dicor self levelling adhesive
RV Goop, Gorilla glue, silicone based lubricant, slideout lubricants
Battery operated solder iron and solder wire
... and anything else that might come in useful

This does not include accessories such as extension cords, adapters, etc. Just the toolbox items. So far I have never found myself wishing for a tool I did not bring.

I keep a (VOM) portable Volt ohm meter in the trailer as well as one in the boat. Also a bag or bundle of big black tyraps. They come in handy to strap something down as a temporary repair or for permanently tiding things up.

What will you do when you see that they are neither Goodyear or the M-word?

They will most likely be Chinese-made Westlakes.

Got Westlakes an they are still round and hold air. Perhaps when they wear out (or two years) I will look at some different tires.

Wayne you keep a bundle of tools around. Seems I need a sewer extension cause this run was a stretch. Got the 32" running for the UT/Georgia game (we lost) with a 25' HDMI cable to the sat box inside. Picked up some battery lights for several cabinets in the TT. The DW loves me.
Got up on the roof today. Cleaned and sealed it. Looks like new. Used Dicor product and it was really easy and took about an hour to clean an about 30 minutes to seal later in the day. Give it a good wash tomorrow when I leave.
