The wife and I owned several OTR trucks and I still drove, and I carried enough tools that after being towed to a Freightliner dealer I changed the turbo in the parking lot. Then there is that time I was down in a rest area because I didn't have 12 inches of wire to make a repair. So no matter what you carry odds are it will be the little things. BTW I got the 12 inches of wire from a RV.

Had the same thing happen (2 flat tires at the same time) in Alaska on a dirt road. Thankfully, it was a well-traveled dirt road!

Bring a hacksaw and a spare blade, 12 voltmeter and one for 120 volt or one that can handle both, and a Leatherman Wave or something similar. Carried one for many, many years. You'd be surprised how handy it is.

It's starting to sound like he would be better off just camping next to a Sears store.

I agree with bringing some basic tools, but you can't bring the entire store! I do have extra cords I can bring and extra water hoses but I don't like to get one that is 100' long. that is alot of hose if you don't need it and it is a pain in rear to handle!

Oh, I know... I see a lot of guys (and gals). Pull their reusable gloves out, start dumping, etc.. and then reach into their pockets and grab keys, get into their vehicle and grab door handles, steering wheels, trailer door handles. etc... I'm like EWWWWW....

I don't even touch the water bib at TT hook up with my bare hand. When they dump at their camp site they have gloves on and then turn on the water to clean the dump tube and your the next guy pulling in to do your hook up for the week and never give it a thought what he just did!!!

That's why I pack a squirt bottle filled with water, dish soap and bleach. I spray the spigot before and after I dump. Also spray the spigot for drinking water at the campsite then let it run for awhile before connecting the drinking hose. I always distrust what the last guy might have done but leave things as clean as I can for the next guy.
