What's in your caddy?

Looking through some cleaning & maintenance threads and thought this might be interesting: what products do you consider indispensable for cleaning and maintenance of your rig? Here's a short list from memory:

AeroKroil (general purpose penetrating, creeping oil instead of WD40)
PB Blaster (nut buster)
Boeshield (lubricant used on metal to metal joints esp. unpainted)
white lithium grease (general purpose spray grease)
Ospho (small bottle for spot rust treatment)

Super Clean Cleaner Degreaser (heavy duty cleaning)
Simple Green (10% solution for general cleaning)
Bleach water (5% solution, awning and other cleaning)

Battery post protectant spray and graphit lock lube would be a good addition to your list. A grease gun for home use also.

I love Kroil but I haven't been able to find it anywhere! Where did you find it? Anyway here is my list:

1.ICE spray wax by turtle wax, its easy to apply and buff off. Not sure how long it will last but its easy enough that I can do it once a month.

2.ICE car wash soap, super thick and works great.

3. plenty of microfiber towels.

4. mister clean sponges, greatest thing ever invented to remove stuff that nothing else will

5. Grit buster, it goes in the bottom of your wash pail and lets the grit and sand settle to the bottom while keeping your wash brush and mitt above the abrasive particles.

6. armor all electronic wipes for all the flat screens, radio and backup camera screens

7. Gig-a-loo spray lubricant, it goes on like wf-40 but dries quickly and leaves a film that will not leave marks or stains. great for door hinges and the metal channel were your dinette table mounts to the wall (stopped the squeak)

Penetrating-Lubricating Oils

In our neck of the woods (PacNW) we can also pick it up at Tacoma Screw.

Amazon has Kroil for those who can't find it locally.
