Thank you.

Its a "Pilot Thing" I suppose. Checklists are "life" in the cockpit.

Also I am getting older and forgetful of where stuff is in the camper.

I have been wanting to post it for a while now, but "It just needs to be tweeked one more time first..." You know how it is.

I carry many of the same. Screwdrivers, pliers, few pluming supplies, wrenches and socket set.

One thing I always carry is a rubber mallet. It has come in handy a few times.

Oh and of course duct tape and super glue

Thank you!

I showed your check list to my DW and now mine looks a lot more reasonable! Oh yes, I didn't see the kitchen sink on it anywhere...

Well, it is a work still in progress.

WD40 and duct tape are prime. "If it moves and it shouldn't, use duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD40." A rubber mallet may help in a really bad case of the second ailment there. Once you've broken it loose, though, remember that WD40 is not a lubricant, but a water dispersant (that's what the "WD" stands for). Put an appropriate lubricant on whatever you busted loose so it keeps moving when it should.

Every RV MUST have some square-drive screw driver heads! They only cost a few dollars.

I own a Forest River, so I carry as many tools as I can, including a Fluke multimeter. Also have an assortment of caulking and tape. Almost forgot...a bottle jack, tire wrench and torque wrench too!

I carry an assortment of Hand tools in my TV all the time (screwdrivers, sockets, wrenches, multimeter and lug wrench) - I also have a bottle jack and a floor jack in my truck box along with pieces of cut 2 x 6 wood and tow straps

I always over pack even for a short three day trip but am still under my gross weight

by looking at Lou's list - that is by far an impressive list to have - if I followed your list I would be overweighted since I am running a half ton LOL
