One of the best things you can put in the tool box is a almost used up tube of Dielectric Grease! I apply this to every electrical connection I can get to! Usually takes me three days.

Carry those tools that you are comfortable using. If electric is not your forte then electrical tools can be kept to a minimum. If you don't want to or are unable to change your flat tires then large sockets and hydraulic jacks may not be necessary. A basic home supply center tool kit for $100 with a few additions will cover most of your basic repairs.

I also keep a box of them with my sewer connector's. It keeps hands nice when dumping tanks too.
