Hello Mike:

I was nice to meet you and your wife at Emerald Desert. The only things I care spares for are a Serpentine and Fan Belts, and a fuel filter. I also carry a Towing Card for FMCA which will cover almost anything else that would leave you stranded. Any other parts can be easily purchased.

Dave

I second having an extra fuel filter. My coach recently exhibited a check engine light so I took it into Cummins. After three visits, a new fuel lift pump, and lots of diagnosis they determined my fuel filter was corroded internally and partially clogged. I had the coach serviced less than 1500 miles (6 weeks)ago including the fuel filter. I would have never thought the filter could go bad in that short of time. I will now always carry a spare.

Not really a spare part, but I carry two part epoxy. I have had to re-glue both fenders on the front of the coach. Both came loose on long trips. Newer coaches might have a different attachment now.
Duck (inside joke)tape too!

Kaddy- I'd guess the replacement filter was bad to start. Diesel is anti-corrosive like an oil bath, so the corrosion/clogging almost had to be there on installation, or at least the start of it. IMO, 1500 isn't enough mileage for that type of problem on a clean, operative filter. You should be getting multiple times that even if you are getting (and filtering) bad fuel.

Added to parts bin....cable to "Power Foot Rest" on passenger Flexsteel seat. On last trip out, foot rest would not retract. I removed foot rest cushion so that seat could be put back in traveling position. There are two cables that come out of small motor that go to worm gear on left and right side of foot rest. Left side cable was worn on inside and not engaging. Replaced both cables
