I haven't seen anything posted that I don't carry. Sometimes two of each.

A set of cards is a big help: Mastercard, Visa card, American Express card, debit card, gas company cards.

Oh wait....my wife and I have a business when we started our bussiness we applied to be able to accept American Express cards.....They sent us a letter saying our business was not large enough and worthy enough, to accept their credit cards, now we always get a letter from Amex saying we are pre approved for one of their cards. So we just tell them that their card is not good enough for our business to accept.

This is a really great thread! I carry most of what the others have listed. I make certain that I have my Capital One M/card "don't leave home without it" and contact numbers for some very special folks on IRV2, who have helped me out in the past while on the road.

We're leaving for the sunshine state on Saturday. So, I thought that I would look in all the drawers, compartments and storage spaces to see what "stuff" that I've been toting around all these years. So, the smart guy who I think I am emptied a bunch of things that havn't been used in years. I was proud of myself for lightening the load so to speak. Then, I started looking around for new stuff to load. Well, after it was all done, I had exactly the same empty compartment available then I had before I got smart and took stuff out. Not so smart after all!

I've been wanting to buy a bigger rig but havn't done it 'cause of money or the lack thereof! But, the real reason is: if I buy a bigger rig, like a brand new Tiffin Allegro 34 TGA, I would just load more junk in it.. Go figure!

The Passport mention reminded me of the following:
Nexus Card (expedited border crossing)
Healthcare Proxies
Durable Powers of Attorney
Canadian Insurance Card
Other important documents pertinent to your life that may not be important to me

OK, I've decided to install full mechanic toolbox on slideout tray, air compressor with full air tools, air and 12v impact, diagnostic equipment, winch, full inventory of coach and chassis/powertrain spare parts, electrical components, bbq, lawn chairs, Kindle, (so wife has something to do while I rebuild engine on side of road) after calculating weight I informed wife she can load up to 8lb of additional supplies. Or maybe always trailer my sickle, and just ride to get "STUFF" can easily pull trailer behind bike. Just havin' some fun with y'all. I want to thank all you experienced rv'ers for the tips, I'm going to enjoy the adventure and not worry so much, in case of rv failure we can just transfer our basics to bike continue trip and return and pick up rv from impound yard.

Sounds about right except you missed two mounted spare tires.
Actually I carry a set of belts, extra engine oil, antifreeze, spare filters (all of them except the hyd's and air dryer), sockets all the way from , and ", high capacity torque wrench (350 ft lbs) an air compressor (150 psi), air impact wrench (650 ft lbs), air extension hose, hole saws, battery drill and saw, 7' folding ladder, 6' folding ladder (need to sell it) outdoor table, metal top grilling table, propane grill, propane bottles, wash bucket, sponges, long handled wash brush, bucket, 30' 50 amp extension cord, 30' 30 amp extension cord, 100; 20 amp extension cord, plus the normal patio chairs, folding chairs, spare wiper blades, 100' antenna cable. That's just part of what's in the storage bays, I won't bother to list stuff inside the rig!!

I keep a small roll of eternabond tape just in case of a leak.
Then once a year, empty it all out and re-pack only what you think you may need. Also, refine your storage organization each year so you can find things when needed.

Two hose end caps in case your city or fresh water fill valve leaks. As ours did not allowing pressure to build in water system (unless you like a water show) could barley flush toilet or run sink!

Awwwww.......

I carry basic handtools a compressor and zip ties(these things are great for quickie issues). I helped out a fellow RV'er whose awning lock had failed driving down the highway. We used the zip ties to lock everything on the awning down till he could get some service.
