Great question:

I have to pack up to move but I'll work on this some more and get back to you.

The things I use the most are:
My small electric driver with a large set of drivers and drill bits including 1/2 bit.
Needle nose pliers
Wire cutters
Channel locks
Razor knife
Handle held ratcheting driving handle with a variety of bits
Electrical and Duct tape
A bright comfortable adjustable rechargeable headlight

The other stuff I have used almost all of but not as often


The typical wrench set of socket, open, and box end in metric and English, including the smaller sizes. Drivers torques, hex, standard and Phillips from the very small to standard.
An few extension, and adapters for drive size, but large to small, and small to large.
A jewelers set of drivers in standard, hex, and torque.
A set of security drivers the ones with the holes in the middle and other odd shapes.

I carry a larger set of metrics that fit stuff on my truck over the size of a typical hardware set but have yet to use them.
Pliers, wire cutters, needle nose, channel locks.
Vice grip
Small File
Small level
Large drift pins
Small and large crescent wrenches
Reversible Clamp set medium size
A few small c clamps
A stubby Philips
A ratchet driver tight spaces (uses the same bits as the hand held driver)
A small torque wrench I use primarily on the high current electrical stuff.
A folding hand saw with a set of long and short wood blades a few metal blades.
5 minute and marine epoxy
Small patch of woven roving fiberglass.

A multi meter, if I were buying it again I'd look for one with a logging feature for those intermittent problems you can not catch.
A 12v voltage probe with sound and light.
A small adjustable temp soldering iron.
A small (tiny) wire work station with clips and a magnifying glass to hold wires while soldering.
Solder, flux, solder wick.

Variety of small wires in different gauges and color really just scraps Iíve collected.
Wire loom Ĺ to 1 inch.
3M Red white and black electrical tape two sets on for the electrical box and one for the mechanical box.
Wire ties small to quite large

Sand paper 0000 to 100 grit
Paint thinner
2013 Winnebago Journey 36M DP. Full time since 2015.
1987 FJ60 Flat Towed, Blue Ox Tow Bar (not recommend), SMI Air Force One, 2000 Watts Solar, 600AH LifeBlue LiFePO4 batteries (excellent).

Welcome. You are joining a good group of folks here with lots of info to share.
CruzierEd had given you quite the list. I would add a small hand ax as well.

Enjoy the adventure.
