Thanks for all the replies!
I carry first aid kits (and Fire extinguishers) on all my cars, and that's a great suggestion.
The difference between the cars and this is also have the electrical and plumbing as well as household emergency fixes.

Thanks again, Tom

Common question. There are many RVers who carry a garage full of tools, and many who have quirky favorites. Lotsa lists floating around out there. Much depends on personal preference and mechanical ability.

I won't bore you with a list but as guideposts for you to build your own here are some things you should be able to ACCOMPLISH:

- Change a tire
- Diagnose and repair basic wiring problems in the tail/turn/brake circuits
- Diagnose and repair basic shore power wiring problems including minor problems at the pedestal
- Deal with a tongue jack that won't retract (if yours is electric)
- Disconnect propane tanks (for older ones that require tools)
- Remove or reattach exterior pieces like awnings and compartment doors if they come loose

Having tools for roadside repairs to things that prevent travel is most important. In a campground people will loan you tools.

Safety equipment is not tools... but carry a fire extinguisher, first aid kit, flares, and cyalume sticks

Communication equipment is not tools... but carry a weather radio in addition to your cell phone or whatever
