Electrical accessory storage??

Been looking around. Since getting our TT, I keep having to add more parts/adapters to my collection and am looking for ideas on how you guys keep them organized?

I have looked things like this Camco Power Grip bag, but based on the dimensions, it won't fit in my small storage area in my TT(Jayco 174BH). The bottom of Camco bag would be perfect since it has compartments for all the dog bones and other adapters that I have, but I haven't found anything yet.

I also spend some time looking at all the tool bags at my local Home Depot but found nothing I really thought would work. Still need to hit the Ace and a couple other Farm and Home places to see what they have, but figured I would ask here. You have have so many AMAZING suggestions, why bang my head to invent the wheel when one of you guys have probably already invented and improved it
Getting back into camping after about 40 years away. Luckily we are in the PNW and have a WIDE variety of places to go!

I keep all my electrical items in a small tub with no lid. I have a second for water pressure, Y valve, filter , Zero G hose and a couple of other items. A third holds my tools and spares. My spare fuses and stuff are in a cabinet inside.

I marked each one in big block letters so I and spouse don't have to grab the wrong one to often back in the cave under the bed.

I too have a small cargo hold, and it is probably a lot bigger than most 23Bs.

I most gave up fancy bags, totes, boxes. Suprisithings stay where I put it.

I have a 30 am 25 foot extension cord, coiled up, and velcro together. It is on the bottom of the pile, (rarely use it). I have my 12 gauge coile on top of that, then 3 hoses. All coiled, and velcrod together. I have a 50 to 30 amp adapting the middle of the pile. I have a very small toolbox with only tools. 15 to 30 amp adapter just sits inside the door as it gets used every time i get home (until recently). I have a small part box, with small parts. I have a plastic ammo box, that has my safety/Emergency items, such as tire jack, safety vest, folding triangles, flasher to make the marker light flash. O have a partial box of disposable gloves, in that box, has some gloves, and my fw tank filler. In front or on top is my 4 wheel chocks, and x chokes.

Things I use every time I go camping is on top or next to the cargo door. If it rarely gets used, it gets pushed back, and down low.

My other cargo hold, that hold things like fires starts, candles, misquote repellents, disposable propane tanes, etc, is placed in a cut down computer paper box.

Small cargo holds can be a pain.

I have lots of storage space outside. I bought a lightweight shelf where I store all me setup stuff in clear boxes with lids. Electrical, plumbing, water and sewer.

I just went thru my rig and grouped all
My tools in one box and itís also in the storage bay.

Getting a different truck has forced me to make some storage changes and itís hard at my age.
Here is my storage box shelf:

I keep my most often used adapters on peg board with hooks in the pass through. The other electric stuff is under the dinette seat. Jay

I have three clear plastic totes with lids. A deeper one is for water hoses, regulators, filters, Y connector etc. There are two shallower ones ó one for black tank stuff like a clear elbow, slinky holder, toilet wand, backflush hose, gloves. The other has my EMS, backup surge protector, dog bones, chain, padlock etc. The freshwater tote goes deep into the basement while the other two stack near the opening in order of when I hook them up. I keep a variety of tools, tape, lubes, engine fluids etc in two separate totes in the back of the pickup. Most-used stuff is easiest to reach.
