This is a great all inclusive tool kit, i have two of them, one stays in the utility room and the other, in the truck/camper. A long way from great quality, but just about any tool you might need in a pinch. Harbor Freight, $29 each when i picked them up.

Check around the rig and see if it has some of the square head screws, and maybe torx head screws and make sure you have something to fit it. I thought I had a good assortment of screwdrivers, but the awning had some of the square head screws that needed tightening and I hadn't noticed them before. I filed down a little screw driver to fit good enough to get the job done, but it sure would have been easier with the right tool.
