Stocking a basic tool kit for MH

Berkshire 390BH is my 1st MH transitioning from TT. What are some basic items to carry to begin a tool kit. Flashlight, engine oil, etc.
Thanks

I have a cordless screwdriver, hammer, rubber mallet, hand held screwdrivers, tire pressure gauge, tape measure, duct tape, WD 40 and more that my brain can't remember on a hot Friday night.

Thanks!
That's a great start especially the WD 40.

Common fuses, buggie cords and athough it won't fit in a tool kit, I suggest a step ladder.

Liquid nails, a folding shovel and flares.

I regularly carry a complete socket set, cordless drill and bits as well as screw driver bits for running in or out screws. I used a fishing type of compartmented box like a Plano 3500 and made a total wiring kit with spare wire, fuses, bulbs, crimp terminal connectors, butt connectors, wire taps, heat shrink tubing in differing sizes and lengths, electrical tape, solder, etc. I always carry spare oil and a satchel of assorted tools like vice grips, adjustable wrenches and specialty tools.

After I weighed my rig, I realized that the mini lathe and mill had to go. While I could make just about any part I needed, they were just to heavy to tote "Just in case." JK

I still carry too many tools, but I use my pancake compressor and air driven tools on every trip. I even have an air driven grinder that I use to trim Bella's Velociraptor claws (I mean nails).

Yea the duct tape is a go. we carry a tube of GOOP too. Actually we carry way to many tools. It takes up one compartment, but when you need it, its there. We also carry an 8 ft ladder hooked to our ladder on the motor home when we winter in Florida. Thats when you want to spend some time washing and waxing the beast. Gotta make it look like new.........
