Nothing on a camper is metric, do far. You do need the square drive screw driver. A spare tire, and enough stuff to change it on the side of the road. Fuses, maybe, but if yo blow a fuse, replace it, and it blows again, then you need a lot more. I carry a lot of tools in the truck, and hope every trip I never have to get them out.

Bottom line, how much do you want to try and fix, or just give up and go home.?

I Agee on the square drive screwdriver. Every screw on the cabinets are square screws. Which I found out after one popped on my brand new camper. The hinges were so tight against the door panel that when I opened it the screw pulled right out.

Imho it really doesn't matter how much you take it seems you still don't have what you need.
I take the basics and if that isn't enough then itll have to wait .
normally if I don't have it someone will.

So THAT is why everyone wants to camp next to me!
I thought it was my wit and charm.

Maybe I am half right...
