In our front storage right inside the door we have one 27-gal tote that sits on top of its lid with all the tools ~ quick and easy to pull out and rummage through; inside it are a few old Tupperware sandwich boxes with the smaller stuff (fuses, screws and washers). Right behind the tool tub are stacked clear plastic bins with lids (approx. 24"x18"x6") for plumbing, electrical, and other 'grouped' things. As the DW and before heading back home, it is my job to make sure everything goes back into the right bin and to manage the list(s) of what we need for next time.

Just make sure you know where the CLOSEST WALMART and LOWES is located near you camp site...

LOWES has all the Electrical/Plumbing/Wood items you will ever need to get something fixed up again...

The GREAT thing about the WALMARTS is they also carry groceries...

It's like Lucille Ball the long long trailer movie.if you haven't seen it it's a must watch for any camper. Don't forget campers are very friendly if you don't have something you need ask your neighbor.

Make sure that if it's for drinking water, it's a hose made for drinking

You can pack all that -- or you can put 5 - $100 bills in a envelope somewhere in your TT and have a couple beers while someone comes to get you a fixed up. :-)

I'm a country boy and have drank from way worse than a garden hose.
The wife on the other hand reads all the labels, so we have the nice white drinking water hoses.

Isn't fixing stuff half the fun? I personally can't stand giving someone money for things I can do myself. Also some of my best repairs have been done with a beer in hand.

Oh, I think most of us can tell some pretty good stories about this subject. Like the time I saw a guy eating a doughnut while dumping.

This came up once on rv.net. Wow, talk about a controversial subject! It was loads of fun.

I've carried a basic hand saw with me, and it's been handy to have several times.

I think this is a issue with all of us . I use to complain to my wife about taking her sewing machine for years until she loaded one of my ammo boxes . The look I got said I better not say anything again ! Their is always something we think we need and it all adds up to weight
