I caught a road alligator (truck tread from tire) outside of New Orleans last trip. It ripped off my drain hoses and fittings from my fresh water tanks, emptying them. I bought new fittings, 1/2" hose, and valves, and hose clamps to replace them after getting home. Just went ahead and got 2 of everything needed, cause I figure I'll catch a gator again, knowing my luck...

3 gallon bucket (home depot type - I buy used from the local bakery for $1)
It's a fire bucket - don't start a fire without filling it with water
It's an extra seat
It's a step
Folding shovel
Torch - 5+ year old bolts come off easy when you heat them (also starts fires nice)
Roadside flare and triangle
Bright flash light - enough light to see problems at night
Wire nuts and some 12 gauge wire
A changeable bit screwdriver and bits to fit everything in your RV
Super glue & epoxy

Along with the other good ideas mentioned in this thread, I also bring along a shovel, rake, and a pushbroom. The system I have is called "The Handler". One handle and the other parts snap on to the handle. I don't have a lot of room for extras so this takes up very little space in my 5th wheel basement.

Each tool must have more than one use.

Get another truck and have your DW drive it loaded with all the tools you own. Folks get a little carried away with all the stuff they think you need. Unless you're boon docking, there are stores to buy what you need when you need it.

You'll need a real good knife, Hammer, Flashlight or Lantern and a Crank Radio in case you lose power. You'll be able to get Weather Alerts. You could take all kinds of thing but it allways turns out you don't have tool you need. So what you take is clearly what ever you think you need. I stick with the basics and make sure I'm ready for emergency's. The rest you'll make do. A vice-grips is a great all around tool.
