Recommend tool list

I just purchased a new TT and want to set it all up with necessary tools.

We do dry camping as well as full hookups.

What do you recommend I carry on board?

Jack, 4way lug wrench, spare fuses, 8 " crescent wrenches 2 each, square drive screw driver, duck tape, black tape, wire cutters,
I'm sure others will add to the list.

That's a tough call. I carry a small arsenal of wrenches and hand tools in the tool box of my pickup....just in case. You'll find more to bring along as your trips become more frequent. Zip ties, bungee cords, thin rope and electrical tape. I could go on and on. A credit card and WalMart nearby don't hurt either.

This is the best way to change a tire on multi axle units.

Not necessarily tools -a water pressure regulator, teflon tape, water filter if you don't already have one, wheel chocks, inexpensive voltmeter, couple extra 12V light bulbs, level to level your TT when parking so fridge runs better.

#1 on lots of lists, and certainly mine, is a good multi-meter. You don't want to be to cheap here, get a fairly good one. Also never leave home without spare fuses and light bulbs.

I have all the tools in my tool bag that I carry in my tv. I have an extra box that I carry in the tt. Presure reducer and filter, two fresh water hoses, an extra power cord, and a 30 to 50 Amp adapter. Got most of this at Walmart. I just recently purchased a 1 1/16 socket for the hot water anode. I have a dump hose but I also bought another one to have as a spare that is longer. If you have an external cable TV hookup you will need a cable, another thing I bought at Walmart. I have ordered several things from straps to secure the awning rods when traveling.

This is the "tool section" of my pre-snowbird departure checklist.
I had planned on packing my table saw but could not get it into the storage compartment with the pool table.

Herk, you carry more tools in your camper than you did in that C130.
