I bought this coach from a very particular fellow, every time something broke down he bought two repair parts. One to fix and one for the next time. I've got spare hubcaps, slide out motor, taillights, screen door handles, and the list goes on. At first I thought it was funny but find myself doing the samething.

The press-n-seal was an amazing thought on my DW's part and I wonder how many other useful tips she's hiding from me.

At first I laughed at the anal Obsessive Compulsive Behavior of the former owner of your coach but then I pretty much saw myself as him. "One is not enough, two is better"! Ugh! No wonder I have so much clutter as I've gotten older!!

Slip joint pliers, vise grips, duct tape, serpentine belt, socket set, multi knife tool, jumper cables, flares, reflective vest, flashlight. Cb/weather radio.
I carry more stuff, but this is what I classified as emergency tools.

I think I'll stop carrying wood and start carrying my 15gal air tank, too.
