FW repair kit

I'm going to become a full timer next spring in a newly purchased 2016 Redwood 39 FL. I'm looking for suggestions on what would make a good all around repair or fix it tool kit. Most of the unit will be under warranty for a couple years but just planning for the little things. Any and all suggestions will be appreciated.

Buy a tool box with organizers, that can be put in the basement and accessed easily. Then start putting stuff in it.

Cheap set of screwdrivers, all sizes and styles. Can use cordless drill with bits.
Pliers, adjustable and side cutters,
cheap socket set with sockets,
wire connectors, stripper, and crimp tool,
GOOD digital volt ohm meter,
electrical tape,
teflon tape,
duct/gorilla tape, (i also carried scrim tape to repair underbelly)
fuse replacements,
good flash light

That's a start, I'm sure others will add in....

I would not buy cheap anything. Buy quality tools. Channel Lock pliers, snippers, etc. I also carry a metal close hanger and various sizes of wires and wire nuts. Misc wire connectors from Auto Zone. I have a separate 'electric bag'.

But in reality you can buy the tools as you need them. There is always a Home Depot / Lowe's you can get to.

Good luck
