For those who know what to do, anything you havn't thought of!! For those of you who can't repair the lightbulb...Don't bother as you would screw it up and need to call a mechanic or neighbor who does!!

I'm lost. I've gone to look for me. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

Ditto, enough #12 or #14 stranded to reach from the battery box to any point on the coach.

My tool set is a small roll around box with
socket set
box end wrenches
vise grips
channel locks
screw drivers
misc screws, nuts, bolts
glue, caulk and caulking gun
soldering iron and solder
misc wire and connectors with crimping tool
fuses and light bulbs
6 ton bottle jack
large 4-way lug wrench
torpedo level
compass
digital volt ohm meter
Ty-wraps
corded drill and drill bits
hammer
hatchet
small bow saw
small cord
rope
tent stakes

I also carry my old glasses as a spare set
battery powered alarm clock
extra wheel lugs

Since we went to a smaller trailer, most of the tools have moved to the large tool box in the back of the truck.

Dremel....Sorry I mis-spelled Dremel!! It's a small handheld rotary power tool used to drill, grind, cut, polish, sand etc. I use a cordless and saved me on many occassions.

This is our fourth MH and there's rarely a trip goes by that I haven't had need to fix something. My tool box has a adequate supply of duck tape, double stick tape and 2 part epoxy. I found that PC-7 or J&B weld epoxy are just great.

Make shure your bit driver has the square bit for rv screws.

we travel 5 months each year so i carry just about every tool mentioned plus a 4 ft ratchet with sockets to break lug nuts up to 600 ft lbs torque. 12 tom jack, oil and fuel filters, all sizes of filter wrenches. one and one half crow foot wrenches to break slideout clutches loose in case slideout needs manual movement. plumbers tape, tin snips, etc.
have had roadside insurance for 20 years and 2 times i needed then they were not available. said i was too far out in the boonies for them to send anyone. i no longer have that company.

One thing I carry that I have not seen mentioned is a set of reflective triangles just in case you end up on the side of the interstate with a flat tire or other major problems.

Thanks for all the responses

However I will not be buying a Class A, I will buy a 5er or TT so I wonder if the basic tool requirments would be the same?

Class A's seem to require more "tinkering"
