Needed Tools

I have the Rockwood minilight 2104. I want make a small tool box of needed tools to keep in the camper at all times. What all is a needed item to put in this tool box. so far i have the list below

Small Set of screwdrivers (3 common and 3 phillips)

Flashlight

Set of SAE combo box/open end wrenches

Set of SAE allen wrenches

Rubber mallet hammer

socket and wrench for stablizers as well as the water heater

small needle nose pliers

small regular pliers


Should i add any metric sets? Regular hammer?Any other tools? I am only looking at actual tools that would be needed for setup and emergency type fixes as the other stuff i have a separate box and list for.

I'd add a few:
Robertson (square head) screwdriver
Torque wrench and socket
Jack for raising camper for flats
Multimeter for troubleshooting
Spare fuses
Air compressor

I'm sure there's more to come...

One of these plus a mallet, hatchet, duct tape and small compressor. I figure for misc parts the hardware store is just a quick drive away. I keep thinking of adding a few fuses and bulbs but haven't gotten to that yet.


The flashlights (+ lanterns) go with the weather radio
and first aid kit

I went by my local Wally World, fishing dept. got me a little divided box, put my spare fuses in it. It had compartments on the top and bottom. You might also need a pair of side cutters. I always have my other tool bag in the TV if I need anything else beside what I have put together.

Quite handy when you pull up and are looking to see if the power is on at the post.

I have a handfull of spare light bulbs.
Spare spark plug for the generator.
I have a 24inch breaker bar and the right socket to check lugnuts or change the tire.
Tire plug kit. More for the dirtbikes, but sometimes its easier to plug a tire than change it.

Come on, nobody mentioned Duct Tape?
