What replacement and quick-fix supplies do you carry in your rig?

Aside from a basic tool kit, I find myself adding more and more "just-in-case" type things to my MH supplies. Of course there's duct tape. Now I have a mini-hacksaw (after a bent cotter pin needed cutting on my old TT), a jug of windshield solution, a gallon of oil; should add a few fuses.

What about an extra set of wiper blades? A rechargeable cheap leaf blower for the slide toppers? The list goes on and on - where to stop!!

Wow, with those lists, no wonder Motorhomes get such poor mileage ! LOL

First big trip we took - my list was long. When I got back, I eliminated what I didn't use and the list was not near so big.

My own personal list always includes a 12-pack of Silver Bullet !!!

my good sam ers card.
a 3/4 inch drive 42" long 600'# torque wrench, 3/4 drive socket set including a 33 mm lug wrench socket, and 2ea 8 ton jack stands to facilitate wheel removal and installation.
if a "professional" removes and reinstalls a wheel it will require re torquing within 1k miles or less if a torque wrench was not used.

One item that I didn't see is a roll of slideout topper tape. You can get it a Camping World and one roll will last a lifetime. I just repaired my big slide topper. Remember to pull in the slides in high winds. We didn't in a windstorm hit us in Kanasas and got it torn right whee it attaches to the coach.

Rich, all you need is the following:

- Spouse (or suitable substitute)
- Credit card (two or three depending on credit limit)
- Patience (the "incredible" variety if you can find it)
- Sense of humor (you can't bring along too much of this)
- Beer/wine/single malt scotch (YMMV)
