Let's see your tool box ?

It's amazing isn't it, when you finally get your MH the things you want to do to make it yours. A lot of fun actually. But then there's the practical "what if's" that come up in your mind. So being prepared for those "what if's" is on my mind right now. "What if's" will usually always require tools or other accessories to address/fix the problem. So right now I'm thinking about what tools I might need, how I'll organize & keep them and how & where I'd store them. I'd like to see your tool box setup to get some ideas? "Let's see your tool box" means pictures please.

For 16 years of full-timing we had a 2x2 tool bag which served us well. We also had an electric drill.

Thanks for that picture. I just bought a replacement tool chest and now I know what to do with the top half of the old one.

Right now, I am using a Styrofoam ice chest with filters, tools, tie wraps, etc.

My tools take up one bay in my 34' Winnebago Voyage.

I have a full set of mechanical tools (wrenches, screwdrivers, pliers, etc), electric drill, lots of different screws, nuts, bolts, washers, & bits and bobs for jury-rigging when necessary. Also have electrical connectors and fuses, etc. and a bunch of plumbing connections. There are also miscellaneous supplies such as sealant, duct tape, etc.

My tools are not on the Snap-On level as I don't plan on using them very often (fingers crossed), so lesser quality is fine for what I need.

I also know where every Harbor Freight in the U.S. is located.

I haven't found one yet that I like and will fit the space. I really do need one as I have 5 torque wrenches alone.

No pictures but I went with a couple of HF tool bags along with a tool kit with sockets and wrenches and a couple Dewalt drivers. No way am I going to have all the right tools with me so there has to be a limit to what I carry.
Oh and a test light and ohm meter.
Besides the neighbors all have what I need or HF.

good luck

If your stuck alongside the road, you'll be glad to see me coming as I carry enough tools to practically overhaul a rig. And in all reality, I need to reel that in as my tools take up at least 2 compartments underneath and also plenty of space underneath the bed. I need to wrestle them all back into one compartment. I don't have any slide-out trays, but if I would add a slide-out tray and add some nicer tool boxes, I could probably get everything into one compartment. I need to work on that . . .

I carry a tool box with all your basic hand tools, a separate set of sockets and another tool box with your basic repair parts and accessories.
I also have a small lithium powered drill with drill bits and drivers, and my trusty Simpson meter and Amprobe electronic temp probe.
That's it.
