Getting close to ordering the 36FBTS

Well folks it's getting close to the ordering of our new home. We are selling everything off now to start full time rv'ing, but I need a little knowlege from all of you that has been doing this a while. I would like to know the must have tools that are required to repair and maintain a fifth wheel trailer for the DIY'er. I know what tools are needed for autos as I have done this for years but will be new to trailer repairs. A list would be nice if possible. All help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks all and Happy Camping.

Thanks for the concern Jason. I ran the numbers with the trailer weight and truck and all indicates it will with no problem and some to spare. I have several people I know that pull the same length trailers and and weight with a 2500 Ram. One is my brother in law who lives and pulls his in the mountains of Colorado.
