Guess I'm overboard. Most of the above for sure. Also, spare 12v converter, pex and soft line plumbing (which includes the cutters, fittings, valves etc), torque wrench (for wheels and pin box bolts), spare lights, gas line fittings, fluids of all sorts, assorted electrical stuff (romex, wire nuts, connectors, smaller wire for 12v runs and all the electrical tools), rubber roof repair-dicor-sealant, and the list goes on. Bunch of mechanical tools as well. Can't remember everything we have. I've got quite the RV parts surplus, but I don't have to go hunt stuff down and have fixed many an issue away from home. We full time now, but have always carried the above where we don't have to call anybody or go anywhere when something goes wrong. A little overboard, maybe. But, if you ever are camping near us, shoot me a PM, we just might have it. I've been able to help a few people here and there in campgrounds with minor issues. I Fedexed some plumbing parts, vents and other spare motorhome parts to some of my Tiffin buddies last year just to help out and save them the trouble. Always willing to help.

I carry one in the PU's toolbox....it's my poor man's winch.

I used it to load the 1955 Chevy when I first picked it up.

I used to carry a lot more stuff as spares than I do now. (you can search for my old list here).

Now I use a "test" to see if I should carry it or not.

1) Can I buy it easily? Is it a stocked item at Wal-Mart or Lowes?
2) Would I need it if broken down on the side of the road to SAFELY change a tire? (Roadside Assist on car insurance policy if not)
3) If a camper spare, would it need to be special ordered or only available at a specialty camping dealer?

So:

Spare toilet flush valve: Yes
Spare SAE Fuses: Yes
Spare LED interior Pad: Yes
Spare male and female ends for main power cord: Yes
Various Adapters for power and water connections: Yes
30 Amp extension cord: Yes
Bottle Jack and wood 12x12x12 pads: Yes
Tire Changing tools: Yes
Tow Strap: Yes (used to carry a chain but this weighs a LOT less)
Large (10 pound) Fire Extinguisher for outside camper door
Two small (2.5 pound) Fire extinguishers (1 inside truck, 1 inside camper)

Yes, these are required by law in PA. (I also carry road flares too.)

Having fought ants numerous times --- and careful to not use pesticides --- I carry corn meal. When sprinkled around, ants can be controlled in a harmless manner.
Does anyone have other ideas?
