    I think that I carry pretty well everything that has been mentioned yet except for axle stands.
    I even carry 2 bottle jacks and the sissor jack and also a flat wooden block to go under the jack.:Blush:

    :Cool: As I keep on telling people. We ALL have to start somewhere. For instance? Three years ago our son Simon was basically taking all his repairs to friends. His only mechanical and electrical work was on Model Aeroplanes/Engines. He used to polish and valet cars before he sold them on. When we got back from SPAIN with Brake and exhaust manifold problems on our old Coachmen? I got him to assist me with the repairs. He has since built up a vast array of Snap-On tools and is a VERY competent Mechanic and basic vehicle electrician. He uses his spare time to fix snapped Cam Belt cars and vans. He has also replaced full engines, gearboxes, Fuel Pumps, Turbo Chargers, welding for MOT tests. He is at the moment working on a Renault RX4 which had a snapped Cam Belt that someone just replaced thinking that would fix it. It turns out that there are bent valves (usually the case with snapped Cam Belt). He is stripping the top end ready for re-build. He has others in the pipeline when he gets the time. :Wink:

    Spare water pump for the RV (motorhome)................ask Linda nicely!!!!:BigGrin:

    Found out that an RV (or motorhome) without a waterpump is just a blo*dy expensive tent!!!!:Doh:

    Also one of those jumpstart/tyre pump jobbies with a small invertor strapped to the side. Superb bit of kit!!!:thumb:

    only carry 2 things WD40 & Gaffer (duct) tape. If it`s stuck and shouldn`t be, squirt it with WD40, if it isn`t stuck and it should be, stick it with gaffer tape.:Rofl1:
    (only joking)
