I carry a roll of wire, wire connectors, crimping tool, dielectric grease, WD40, ATF, engine oil, ect.
work on the suspention? owned several Diesel pushers and Iam DIY person but never had to ever "work on the suspention" ?? certanily would not be at the top or near the top of my must have tool list. I personally dont think there are ,many that have to or do work on diesel suspentions or even gas for that matter

Well I don't have a DP, I have an F53 chassis as indicated in my sig. I've done some mods to the front and reat anti-sway bars to make it handle much better. Since I'm gone for months, I may need to make adjustments. I also do a lot of work on it while gone. I may replace shocks this trip out also (or I could break one). I'm also prepared to replace U joints or a carrier bearing. Last year out I had to replace 2 springs on my Power Gear jacks which also required the large wrenchs.

I have yet to spend $1 on labor on my coach and have no plans on it.

No matter which BFH you bring, you'll always discover a need for a bigger one.
