adjustable wrench fits that bill. I don't need the special wrench for the propane fittings because all connections have a hand grip.

One of those really cheap multi-meters you get at Harbor Freight. Pocket knife. A few wire nuts and cable ties.

Well, some of these are supplies and not tools, but you should still have them.
check. check. check. (except no hose clamps. get for future trip.)

Hmm... will have to explore that option.

Cordless 1/2" drill, primary use for stabilizer jack moving.
I've considered that a few times and haven't brought myself to carrying one, yet. They're pretty heavy for the little I'll use it. (I'm happy with the manual crank for stabs.)

Extra hardware for WDH.
You touched on a sore point. I tend to leave the wrench for my BlueOx wherever I last attached the hitch. I've lost 2 already, in a year. I now own three because I swore I'd never be without a spare, bought one, then found the one I lost.

Quote:
Socket for hot water drain, again ya never know.
Good idea for future trip. I have one but not where I can get at it immediately, and I'm leaving in the AM.

While the ratchet drivers are handy, I prefer an assortment of phillips and slotted screwdrivers, might need that stubby.
I'm happy with the ratchet driver but you're right about a stubby.

If you bring electrical crimp on terminals don't forget the strippers and crimpers.
Not bringing the crimp-on terminals. That's what the Dykes and electrical tape are for.

I have all of the manual cranks that came with the trailer.

I made my own emergency kit. It's a red toolbox with a large flashlight, two high visibility safety vests, flares (chemical and the ignition type) orange road cones, ponchos, and various do-dads.
I bring my tool bag as well as a 12-volt air compressor, torque wrench for tires, and a digital, lighted tire pressure gauge.
Also have extra sewer and water hoses...you never know when you will need them.

Don't forget a pair of water pumps (aka slip-joint pliers) and a pair of vice grips.

There' will always be something you don't have the proper wrench for, and these will be all you can use.

I swapped the duct tape for Gorilla tape; the duct stayed on some raod damage for 150 miles, the Gorilla stayed 1,200 miles and 4 months util I got it repaired. Also a piece of PEX and some clamps for any water line issues. I also have a small 12 volt air compressor and jump starter. How much you need depends a lot on the age of the TV and TT you own; older=more tools.
