Just think about the basic tools you would keep in your toolbox to fix your car, then think about what basic tools you would need to do repairs around your house and there ya go. Don't forget to bring a grab bag of screws, tie wraps, maybe even a small nut and bolt assortment. All of the tools I have in my camper stay there, I never have to worry if I forgot something.

Remember --- if you can't fix it with a hammer, it's electrical!

Or if it moves and shouldn't -- duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, WD-40!

Holy Cow. If I brought all that with me, I'd be over max weight.

You may consider a 50' water hose. We have been to a couple of places where the 25' + 50' hose just barely reached. I am going to get a 100' hose for this season. It is nice to just run the hose to the spigot when possible when the fresh tank needs topped off vs the 6 gallon jerry can 6 times.

Do not, and I mean DO NOT forget disposable gloves for dumping your tanks. They are also good for handling raw meats while cooking and saving space in your tanks washing your hands.

How about a good flashlight and spare batteries, and/or gas lantern.

I run a restaurant, so I have a never ending supply of gloves. I wouldn't have though about bringing them. I have some heavy duty mid arm chemical resistant ones that I was planning on bringing, but a 2 cent disposable would be much easier than dealing with storing the dirty good ones.

Flashlights I have plenty of LED one laying around. They always seem to have them at the check out counter at lowes/home depot and for some reason I always seem to grab one every time I cash out.

I'll also look into a longer hose. Where we are typically going to be staying at the 25' is plenty, but having to much and not needing it is always better than being short.

Someone mentioned an internet connection. We both have cell phones with hot spots and I just bought a 2015 Silverado which has it's own wifi hotspot. I think we have that covered.

Thanks for all the advise, I've definitely seen a few items I would have skipped over had they not been mentioned here.
