Handy Items?

Curious as to what some of you find to be really handy items to have in your trailer or storage boxes. Not talking about basic tools, tire iron, rags, etc., more along the lines of stuff others may or may not have thought of but which you find to be almost indispensable.

In my case, it is the packs of velcro straps you can get at HD. I get the red ones, think they are 12” inches long, and come six to a pack. I am constantly using them to wrap something up. Also, a box of nitrile gloves - use em’ when messing with anything near the hitch and when emptying the gray and black water tanks.

I have found a headlamp to be very handy. It was a suggestion from someone else and it's been very handy when setting up after dark!

That is a good one. I have one of those but never put it in my trailer. But I will do so now.

Thanks

I essentially grew up around campers (my folks preferred Class As) ... and my dad never had a headlamp. Of course he always had my mom (or me) to hold a flashlight if something broke in the night ... 90% of my trips are solo.

Handy and necessary, some Shark Bite fittings or Pex crimps with tool and fittings and a short section of tubing.

Bummer to shut down the water system due to a leaking water line because of a loose fitting.


VOM to check those electrical gremlins that will crop up eventually. A few terminals and crimper as well.


Automotive fuses for those 12 volt appliances.

Good ideas. Wish there was a basic “thanks” or “like” option for this forum.
