just got back from an off-road event (PVD) and of course, dry camping. After disonnecting my rock crawler at 11 pm on Thursday night, I was looking forward to a nice shower. You guessed it, the water pump was dead. I was about to turn around and drive home in the middle of the night but I was too tired so i went to bed dirty. Next morning during a trail run, a buddy of mine told me that he had a spare one in his motor home so when we got back from a run (by the way, we saw a guy pulling a jeep w/ a mh crashed and rolled) we disconnected mine and connected his spare with lower capacity and i was able to take a hot shower. The lesson learned, carry a spare one. I have one now since I bought one from a buddy of mine. Saddleback, here I come tomorrow again (along with a short list of things once again)

How much are spare water pumps? I love to carry spares too, but it's all too easy to soon have a spare RV in the basement and no room for anything else, if we try to think of everything that might go wrong and carry the spare part. Then when we trade it in, the eventual buyer gets all these new parts that we never used but won't fit our new coach. ??? It boils down to what are the essential spares to carry. Ones that will get us into town to the nearest dealer to buy the part we need. Let's hear what the experienced 'ol' timers carry on board. Fuses for sure....what else?
