May be I missed it, but a moisture meter. I think the Acryl-R and caulk have been mentioned for possible use after using the moisture meter.

A shovel, just in case I pack it in on some lonely stretch of highway somewhere and the wife doesn't want to drag my carcass to town, (cause I'll stink up the coach).

Oh and a pair of gloves cause God forbid she gets her hands dirty.

A full Blown Snap-On 7 drawer tool box with god only knows what all from socket sets to drills to cordless drills and I still buy tools..You would think I would have one of everything now but I guess I'm just a "tool junky" --- I hate to have to ask around for tools I don't have. --- I also carry a battery charger that I have Needed a couple of times -- somebody (Guess Who) didn't close the drivers door all the way on the TV and the interior lights burned (most of the night)...Just pack as many tools as you can -- you might need them someday -- Countrysong

Murphy's second law states that "Whatever goes wrong next will require a tool not yet in the kit".

And a part that's only available by special order.

But seriously, my number-one tool is a Gerber multi-tool. Multi-tools are never the best tool for the job, but they beat having no tool at all for the job.

I need to up my game in the toolbox department, but right now there's stuff like a spare cap for the water fill, a voltmeter, a variety of electrical connectors, wire and tape, some plumbers tape, duct tape, locking pliers, vise grips and a small hammer. Also a copper pipe-cutter and some spare sharkbite connectors for Pex, and tucked away in the trailer is a long piece of pex, just in case something happens on the road. Oh and of course a rivet tool and a variety of rivets. A multi-tip screwdriver, and a leatherman multi-tool. I think that's it. It all fits in a small box.

I feel like I still won't have whatever I need next!
