Replacement Parts carried

In the paperwork for the new to us 07 Monaco Diplomat ISL 400 Is a listing of filters, engine belts, a/c belt and trans filter kits. All will be needed for our annual service, but what if any of these parts do you carry for an emergency?

Most likely I would not be replacing myself-just which parts would you have with you for emergency service.

Also, this paperwork lists the engine as ISL03 400?? And engine CPL#8389 ??

Thank You!

FWIW,
I would learn how to change your own fuel filters, otherwise you could be stuck on the side of the road. It takes 10-15 minutes max.



When I change my belts I use the old as a spare,

I carry fuel filters for both engine and generator.
I carry spare oil filter and coolant filter.

I just purchased and carry 2 spare air bags
I carry spare relays and fuses along with misc electrical supplies
Misc nut/bolts zip ties and an assortment of hose clamps.

I'm a new coach owner as well, and for me the answer to this question is based heavily on "What type of repair am I comfortable attempting on the side of a busy road?".

Based on my research, I'm down to carrying spare fuel filters (2x of each), and the old belt that I removed when I replaced mine recently as a spare.

I also carry a gallon each of 50/50 coolant, engine oil, trans oil, and a quart of hydraulic fluid (aka cheaper trans fluid) for topping off as needed.

Anything else I plan on using my roadside assistance plan as needed, or can pick up locally if parked safely long enough to debug/repair the issue.

Don't forget some fuel to prime the fuel filter. I carry a bit more.
Ride height valve and linkage
Alternator and AC belts and tensioner
Silicon hoses 90, 45 degree and 4 feet of straight hose
Variety of T-hose clamps
3/8 and 1/2 4 feet stick Pex tube with crimp and shark bite coupler
Air hoses with Variety push on connection (coupler)
Aqua hot circulation pump
12 V and 120 V stuff like variety of connection and circuit breaker
Ryobi 18 volts 1/2, 3/8 impact gun and 3/8 ratchet just to make it easier
I'm sure there are more to carry!

I carry a box of latex mechanics (O Rileyís has some nice 7 mil gloves) gloves also, can be used for working on coach and at an accident scene for personal protection. One other thing is a gallon of Boiler Fluid for your Aqua Hot if you have one.
It not a bad idea to carry other basic parts even if you canít fix it yourself, at least youíll have the parts with you!

RV parts are hard to find in the middle of NO where.

Don't rely too heavily on your roadside assistance.

VISA. I’m too old and not mechanically inclined enough to do roadside repairs. Ninety percent of the spares you buy you will never use, so what have you saved?
