Essential RV Parts and Tools to Carry While On the Road

Can You Fix It?


By Alan Lidstone

One of the goals of all RVers is to carry a tool box, but never have to open it. Unfortunately, since RVs are essentially rolling homes loaded with the conveniences that make traveling and relaxing more fun, we have to be prepared to “fix” something that is not working quite right or not working at all.

Carrying the right tools, spare RV parts, and batteries can help to avoid a service call or visit or the need to buy a replacement product. It’s important for RVers to consider what may be needed to keep the RV happy and keep everything on or in the RV working properly.

For starters, make sure you have the Operation and Maintenance documents for the RV and all the systems and equipment in the RV when you are out on the road. Besides operating information, the documents and brochures usually provide excellent troubleshooting steps to take when the equipment is not operating properly. Also, make sure you have the necessary information to contact emergency roadside service providers and extended warranty or continuing service plan providers. It's always important to be aware of local RV services available in the areas you will be traveling.

We strongly recommend that all RVers travel with an air pressure gauge and an air compressor (that can reach all tires) to keep all tires properly inflated, along with a jack capable of lifting the RV, triangular reflective safety markers (in case of breakdown), and wheel chocks. Keeping the last set of windshield wipers and engine belts when you replace them may help you or another RVer should the need arise.

An RV tool box should include a flashlight and spare batteries, 3/8-inch and 1/4-inch socket set including a 3/8- to-1/2-inch adapter and extensions, an open-end hex wrench set, a heavy-duty adjustable wrench, pliers, work gloves, safety glasses, slotted and Phillips head screwdrivers, a rubber mallet, and a hammer. You may also want to consider a battery-powered 3/8-inch electric drill and drill set.

Some other items that RVers should carry are silicone spray lubricant, silicone adhesive (tube), electrical tape, WD-40 lubricant, Kwik-Lube lubricant (for steps and slides), and heavy-duty duct tape (handy for leaks and temporary repairs). RVs with slideouts or leveling systems may require special tools to retract the slides or leveling system in the event of malfunction. Please consult your manual for those essentials.

Having battery jumper cables, a battery filler container, and a specific-gravity tester will enable you to check (and jump) batteries when necessary. RVers should also carry extra engine oil, hydraulic fluid for the transmission, brake fluid, and windshield cleaner.

Also helpful is a one-gallon water bottle (can be filled from RV fresh water tank) and funnel for adding water to your radiator.

You can easily buy just about everything you need at dollar st...
