Tools to carry

The question was asked about what tools to carry in the RV. This can vary depending on who you talk to but the following list is what I have when traveling.

Complete automotive tool box with about every socket and wrench made
Cordless drill
drill bits and a bit set with the different screw head attachments
"pex" plumbing tools with extra plugs,"t"s and elbows
a good lug wrench and breaker bar
tire plug set
mini air compressor
caulk gun and sealant for the roof (also a roof patching kit)
The following tapes; duct, Teflon and electrical
grease gun
electrical testing meter


And I'm sure there's much more in my tool area

With a new rv, I didn't want to embarrass it with old tools,
so I went out and got a compact set something like THIS KIT that stores very easily...

Don't forget some replacement plastic fresh water tank drain line fittings which are prone to snap off & drain 100gals into the bellypan. Mine snapped off twice. Also, don't forget a bellypan screw socket for your cordless drill.

Don't even think about leaving home without a set of Robertson screw drivers or better yet, a Robertson driver drill set. Practically every fastener in the Redwood uses square headed Roberson screws.

I've called those little screws a few names but never "Roberson". I know some Robersons and they're pretty nice people

Ginny and I are looking forward to seeing you and Sam again. I might share have a small drink around fire with you if my arm is twisted just right.

So today my wife says the drawer won't close. Sure it won't close the 200 lbs of clothes you put in it pushed the bottom right out of the drawer. So after a trip to Lowes I came out of there with a manual brad gun. What a beauty, I came back fixed the drawer and t hen proceeded to nail every piece of moulding and trim that was loose. This was a good add to the tool box. I also believe it won't be the last drawer I'll need to fix. Lol

Ialso carry a Millwakee 18 volt 1/2 inch drive cordless impact wrench - does lug nuts on trailers or the dually quicker and with alot less effort than cross wrench or breaker bar.

I carry a DeWalt for the same reason.
