What spares/extra parts do you carry?

I am thinking of packing some of these:
Fuses - Ford E450 square types, ATC, AT, and mini in various sizes
Tire & Rim -Still not sure how to transport
Filters - Oil (I have a long trip planned)
Fluids -
- Washer fluid
- Engine Oil chassis and gen set
- Brake fluid
- PS fluid
Dicor



Tools:
- Bottle jack
- RV capable air pump
- wrenches
- screwdrivers, flat, cross, and square drivers.
- Caulk gun
- Putty knife
-

What am I missing?

A gallon of washr fluid is about 8.5 pounds. If you ran out, you could just put in water until you got to an Autozone or Advance to get some.
I also carry a tire plug kit, just in case, and a large can of Fix-a-Flat to repressurize the tire. Fortunately, never needed either----yet.

Carl I agree from previous post on weight. There are some things you can pick up when you go out grocery shopping. Always an auto store or auto department around. Best on your list is the spare tire. I keep mine under the bed in the rear which is accessible from the outside storage door. Least on your list I think would be a caulking gun. Just saying. And...oh, have a nice trip.

The one thing that is always needed....duct tape. And for some strange reason, I've always carried a couple of ratchet straps.

For me, I am putting together a few extra things as I will be going to Alaska and there are large stretches where there are no services at all.

For the spare tire, I will likely be using a hitch mounted system that is designed for offroad use, because they usually have a way to tighten up the mount to make for less rattling and noise.

I like some if the suggestions here. The washer fluid may fall off my list.

I wanted to carry a spare as well, but could not find a place to store it. It will fit easily in the basement for my 31DS, but it takes up a lot of valuable easy-access space, and adds weight to the rear end, which I would rather not do. could not use a rear hitch receiver for the weight reasons as well as the fact that I tow a car, so I settled on a front mounted hitch receiver and spare tire carrier (look online). Cost $300+ for both parts plus mounting of the receiver, but I found it well worth it. It has not seemed to interfere with engine cooling, although I have not taken it through Death Valley yet

We won't be towing on this journey, so it will go on the rear. I have been toying with the front hitch for bikes.

I was thinking of Alaska myself, but not sure If I'll have the time off work for it on this trip. (july) One thing I was planning on taking for that trip was a small 12" chain saw. Cut your own firewood, tree in the road after a storm,(ok small chance I guess) and you can use trees for a lot of emergency things if you have the means of cutting them.
