Check out these expert tips for building your go-to RV tool kit to ensure you’re prepared for anything.

Before you hit the road, it’s important to make sure you’re bringing the tools and supplies you might need while you’re enjoying the RV lifestyle. While it’s not hard to find an RV accessories store while you’re on the road, being prepared with a preplanned RV tool kit can make your travels that much easier.

How Do You Store Tools in an RV?

Many RVers choose to store their important tools in an RV toolbox. This makes it easy to keep everything in one place. Some RVers choose a traditional toolbox, while others just keep everything in a bin. There’s no right or wrong way to store your RV tools as long as they’re organized and out of reach of any little ones. The toolbox can be kept in the basement or exterior storage of your RV, in cabinets, or tucked away in a corner. Just make sure that wherever you choose to store your RV tool kit, you’re putting it in a place that’s secure and easy to access.

Must-Have RV Tools for Your Kit

Being prepared makes any situation that much easier, especially when you’re out on the open road in your RV. There are common tools and items that should be a part of every RV tool kit, no matter the type of RV. Your must-have RV tools and tool kit items include:

  • Duct tape
  • Electrical tape
  • Tire pressure gauge
  • Portable air compressor
  • Tire iron
  • Spare tire
  • Flat tire repair kit
  • Flashlight
  • Knife
  • Tow strap or chains
  • Wrenches and pliers
  • Allen wrenches
  • Fuses
  • Drill and drill bits
  • Hammer

  • Jump box
  • Saw
  • Working gloves

These tools will help ensure that you’re able to handle any situation on the road, and even help others out if they’re in a jam. Make sure to bring your RV’s manual or any operational paperwork on your adventures too, just in case. Lazydays RV customers can enjoy extra benefits with their RV purchase, including access to our RV tech support hotline for added assistance on the road.

Extras for Your RV Tool Box

Your RV tool kit should also include supplies to help keep everyone on board the rig safe. A first aid kit is a must to bring along on any road trip, and there are many options for purchasing complete first aid kits. You can also build your own kit with your favorite brands of band-aids, gauze, medical tape, bandages, sanitizer, rubbing alcohol, sterile gloves, tweezers, safety pins, antibacterial ointment, and eye dressings.
