What is your 'must have' tool?

Hey class c owners, what is "the" tool or gadget that you wouldn't pull out of the driveway with, and why? This informal poll will help all of us newbies.

thanks!

Acually, if I read the OP correctly, They are asking what I would not take with me. "what is "the" tool or gadget that you wouldn't pull out of the driveway with". We are all answering what we wouldn't pull out of the driveway withOUT. Sorry, folks. I just couldn't resist.

I own a Class A but no matter what RV I owned I wouldn't be without a good screwdriver set. There is always something that need tightening or adjusting.

I always care these

Bucksmom,
I have a pair of channellock pliers that are 4.5 inches long and a two bladed pocket knife with one blade as a screw driver. You'd be surprised how many times my pocket tool kit has saved me.
Have fun
Milt

Well the most important tool I own is gray, and it resides inside my skull, between my ears. As far as I know, I usually have it with me, but sometimes I don't use it as much as I should.

I dont want to offend and I dont want it to seem that I was dodging the "one most important tool" question. The plane and simple truth is you need a basic set to prepare you for a lot of different problems. My thought is that for me the question would be what would a basic set of toosl be.
