gasser models -- spare parts tub?

folks,
we've ordered a 32sa gas tiffin. excited!
in the meantime,

another thread solved an odor problem and the thought came that i/we all needed a tub with some spare parts. i'm guessing that most parts that my 32sa might need will be common to the 34's and 36's etc.. and maybe even some diesels

so, i'm asking... what spare parts should we store in the tub that prayerfully, we will never need? or maybe we can help a neighbor at the cg, if we just happen to have a certain air valve?

all suggestions are invited. especially items that you've seen or heard of several owners needing?

i'll start with
1. fuses
2. ?
3. ?

Put things in your basements that are fun to use. Have a credit card and Amazon Prime for parts. If I haven't convinced you, others will give you a list.

lol

awesome answers!
one southeastern, one southwestern.
i've learned that most of the time good answers come from folks with lots of posts. and that's the case this time too.
i was chasing a rabbit, that didn't need to be caught.

i love this site... plain spoken, but friendly. point well taken.
i don't have amazon prime, but i think that is a good "part" to obtain!

as a newbie, one less thing for me to be concerned with! yahoo.

Always have a spare tune up kit for my genset - Plugs, air filter, fuel filter and oil/filter......

Lots of different fuses - just a good idea

Tools - assorted to take care of the little things

WD-40, lubes, etc

Drywall screws and duct tape

12V electrical tester

Replacement parts is a tough call. It seems different folks have varying issues.
Based on my issues, I carry drawer latches, and a ceiling temperature sensor, and fuses.
You do need water filters and a hot water anode and wiper blades, various cleaners and lubes.

I carry spare fuses & a few light bulbs. I also have a spare water pump and belts. I just kept the old belts for spares.Oil , ATF & Brake fluid are good to carry. I find that if you have the spare part , it's guaranteed not to break.
What you really need is a repair kit containing screws , washers , nuts, bolts, tape, tie wraps,wire, hose clamps, sealant, JB weld, electrical connectors, hose, multi meter ,clamp-on amp meter , etc. A lot depends on where you travel and camp.

rockriver-

For the cross-country trip we carried more spare parts.

For the trips where we pass through, or stay in areas with lots of stores, I carry fewer spare parts, mostly bulbs, fuses and small plumbing parts, like washers. These are things you can replace at a camp site or rest stop, quickly.

We have a toad, so in the areas with stores I can get almost everything I need within an hours drive, round-trip.

If you don't have to be on the road every day, you can afford to order stuff off the Internet and wait for it.

We don't generally pack fluids, as I don't do mechanical work on the coach chassis. We do carry silicone spray lubricant, a spray cleaner, and bleach.

As far as non-spare materials go, wire ties, various tapes, an assortment of #6, #8 and #10 self-tap and machine screws and some 14 AWG wire will get you down the road.

I'm pleased with how much I've been able to leave at home, compared with prior trips.

Now tools... that's a different business altogether. I bring my 45-year-old Sears "carry" toolbox from the house, augmented with some wiring, carpentry and plumbing tools. I'd rather not buy a tool while on the road that duplicates what I have at home. Plus, I often find projects to do while away.

Off the top of my head, spare solenoids for the hydraulic pump for the slide, fuses and some plumbing repair materials. I'm sure hubby has more as he believes in being prepared, but that's all I can think of now.
