Tools to bring

On a trip thru New Mexico a large front suspension bolt came loose and I thought that the front axle was going to fall off, miles from no where. Fortunately I brought along a 1 1/2" socket to tighten the trailer hitch ball and that was the one I needed. 5 minutes and two full turns on the bolt and I was back on my way.

Some are mentioning tape- I use rescue tape- it's really great stuff and I helped an elderly rv'er once in Borrego Springs with it..holds like crazy. Also, everything I take fits in a tackle box that's plastic and about 2 1/2 X 2 x 1 1/2. by Plano.
I don't have a diesel, so spare filters, etc are n/a. The usual fuses/ bulbs are a must, a few wrenches (crescent), some sockets, a butt-splice electrical crimper with splices ranging from #10 to #24 and spades too. A small Army-Type folding shovel and a claw hammer, a volt-ohm meter, a few common nuts, bolts; screws. Also some insulated #14 wire, jumper cables.

Absolutely the best idea yet. Park next to the mechanic........size him or her up...........determine their poison......go buy some poison......tell them your problems...........present the poison.

Done deal.

Way to go wheelingit.

I am getting rid of my tool kit and heading to the poison shop. Bound to be some leftovers for me.

Having been in plumbing and heating all my life, I had a large amount of tools. Yes I got rid of many. Two years out into fulltiming I gave about a hundred pounds of tools to my Son In Law. I still have too many. But if all else fails and I do not have a wrench large enough, I still have a 14" stilson wrench for in a pinch and a piece of pipe for a longer handle.
