Essential spare parts to carry for W22?

I figured I would get a better response here than in the class A forum since this is chassis specific and the readers here are probably more "hands on".

I am prepping to go full time in the next couple months and am thinking about what to carry with me in spare parts that are not readily found at the local auto parts store for my '03 W22 chassis.
I would like to be ready for that common breakdown somewhere where the nearest Workhorse parts house is states away and I'm stuck waiting for something to be overnighted.

For instance:
serpentine belt
belt tensioner pulley
idler pulley
wheel seals

I don't have the weight capacity or space to carry an entire W22 parts inventory, but I want to be prepared for the most common or likely things relating to parts that are very Workhorse specific and don't cross reference to commonly found parts.

For instance, I found a fuel filter at the local auto parts store, so I won't carry that with me.

What do you recommend from your experiences? Thanks.

JMHO: Given that you will probably not be in front of a parts store , when you need the fuel filter and the weight involved , that's one part I would carry on board.
B-in-L had a 2005 Tiffin 35' on the W-22 chassis and struggled to keep the weigh within limits too. Good luck.

I always carried a upper radiator hose. The lower almost never fails because the water is cooled before going through it. Of course the belt and a fuel filter. Plenty of fuses. Spare bulbs.

Thanks Scooter, but I'm thinking more about the parts that I need to obtain SPECIFICALLY from Workhorse and hard to get from anybody else. I can find gorilla tape anywhere.
