Must haves?

Will be getting my new (used) gas coach in about a week and need to get it ready to cruise. Besides lots of tools.... what are the Must Haves that would be suggested from experienced Class C owners. I can pretty much do anything mechanically. Even thought about bringing my welder.

Class c shouldn't need a torque multiplier. But I did love my electric impact gun!
Otherwise, good list.
I bring an air compressor, extra engine fluids, filters.

Oh Great! The one thing I don't have any of.

It's one reason I need to know what to bring to fix the dang thing myself.

Multimeter and an assortment of alligator test leads. A 100' spool of #14 stranded wire for long continuity testing. That should be ample wire for some splice patching too. Assortment of wire crimp ends, and connectors, and heat shrink tubing. Heat gun too.

Like mentioned ... the list goes on and on. Park beside me and I will have half of what you need. Somebody else may have the other half. Then there is always Lowe's, Home Depot, and Harbor Freight.

As soon as you load all the heavy things you shouldn't need you'll be over gross weight.

Shovel. I carry a trenching shovel. Use it for all kinds of stuff.

Rather than putting blocks under the low wheels I did a hole for the high wheels. Adds stability and brings the jacks closer to the ground.

I'm curious. How do the cg operators react to you digging out for leveling?

Tacking, you didn't say what MH you have or how old,condition ect and what your travel plans are( fulltime, weekend trips, going to Alaska)....I hope all these guys are just kidding and I didn't get the joke.

Although I have all the things they mention at home, with all my previous RV's I did all the repair work I could at home and if something went wrong on the road I usually had enough tools and spare emergency type stuff to get me off the road and into town where I could buy whatever I needed and make the repairs myself. If I planned on using all the things mentioned so far and really thought I was going to need them I would just stay home and do the work there. Just my opinion.
