Or just put a kneeling pad down near the corner of the AS near the drain connections, kneel on it and wait 2 minutes. Somebody will show up to help...

I have a 'gardening cushioned pad' which I lay down when I need to get to the low points on the AS... It saves the knees on my britches..... and, yes, my knee pain is minimized.

Bad idea, sticking scissors or anything other than the proper fuse in a fusebox.
Keep this in mind: The fuse (or circuit breaker) does NOT protect the appliance... It protects the WIRE which serves the appliance.... If you use scissors (etc) then the wire (which may have shorted and blown the fuse) may then GLOW INCANDESCENT and your coach may go up in FLAMES along with your family and other goodies.

A fuse/c.b. is a safety device that must never be by-passed or defeated with the wrong replacement.

Best advice.

Long lists of essentials!! Good stuff though. As a retired mobile rv
Tech I would advise you to carry an extra water pressure regulator; when I drove off and forget mine- once- was glad to have that backup; have repaired many broken water lines- duct tape won't hel

Things to bring

A compact floor jack and several two by six inch blocks. This is especially nice when your, or someone's, tongue jack fails. We also carry several bandanas and clothes pins to put on open windows as warnings against running into them. A "water thief" is useful, especially in parks or areas where the faucets are not threaded for hoses. Safe travels.

No one mentioned propane Teflon tape to seal up a propane tank one just refilled. It's yellow in color.

Hitch ball grease
Long handled lighter for lighting the oven.
Spare flashlight batteries
Bucket of Mountain House food in case of unexpected stops or a sudden disaster related bug out. I.e. Sandy, Three Mile Island etc.
Case of water
Can of Aerospace 303 protectant for the window rubber seals.

None of this represents any volume so it easily stores and will save hassles down the road

I really don't like it when I'm last on a thread. Can someone bail me out?
