What spare parts do you keep on board?

I got to thinking about this after someone asked about carrying a spare slide motor on board in a different thread.

What are some of the spare parts you carry on board your coach?
A few that I have on hand are:
  • slide motor - don't want to get caught at a campground with the full-wall slide stuck out. Who knows how many people it would take to push that thing in
  • windshield wipers - the local auto parts store in random town USA probably does not carry 32" wipers
  • serpentine belt - recommended by a mechanic. even the local Ford dealer doesn't always have a belt for the V10 engine

Those are the only specific spare parts I have right now. Of course I also have extra fluids (oil, coolant, etc) and lots of other general repair stuff (screws, bolts, nuts, duct tape, zip ties of every size, etc.).

I keep spare tire, water pump, tools for minor repairs. Bulbs and small battery charger.

In addition to small 110v air compressor fluids, plug kit.

I am usually towing my racecar on open trailer and carry a bit of small block chevy parts.

I keep soft tool bag of essentials on board. An old style 10 amp battery charger as well as a large jump start box. Also, purchased a wheel/tire for a spare. Right now have it strapped in the large cargo area, but will be mounting under the MH. Also, wire stripper/crimpers with crimp-on connectors. I have been thinking about a spare slide motor now that someone mentioned it. I need to look at mine for a part number.
