Duct tape, WD40, super glue. If it sticks, spray it. If it unsticks, glue it or tape it till you can do it right. Works every time.

The problem is I do take the basics and 90% of the time that's all that's needed!
But I normally have a line at my 5er to.
Could be the coors light
Could be the vodka/ liquid ice
Might be the t-bones on the grill
I think I'm social.

My dear wife told me the other day I was TO social and if need to be I could make friends with a stick and invite it over for a drink.

Needed Tools

How about taking some of the basic ideas given here and if you need something you don't have, go and meet the neighbors who might have it. Always found many in the campground more than willing to help out. If your solo, guess you might need a tool trailer.

Thanx for the awesome list. Will have to see how much room I have...lol is it really necessary to carry an air compressor? I have a 2 gallon one but not sure I want to use all my storage space up for just in case trips. I am solo camper. Might be attaching a hitch to pull a second tool trailer hehe

Would strapping one of those heavy duty plastic storage bins to the bumper of the tt work to put tools in? Or is that too much weight for the bumper?

Nothing, with the single possible exception of a factory mounted spare tire is allowed on the bumber without voiding the bumper and frame warranty.
(Per FR)

Having said that, my Blue Boy rides there as well as my spare, but the weight is about 25 pounds and it rides directly over the bumper.

Got nothing better to do today so I will take some photos of the Blue Boy Mount and of the "Dog's House" in the backseat of the truck. My compressor lives there too.
