Preparing an Emergency Road Kit in advance can make or break your trip.

Having these items stocked in / on your rig for an emergency road kit will go a long way toward allowing you to at least make any necessary temporary RV repairs so you can at least get off the road, if not get to a proper RV repair / RV maintenance location.

Carrying these items in your tow vehicle or toad also provides a lot of security when you're away from your Fiver or Motorhome on a daytrip.

They will also allow you to practice your abilities as a "Good Samaritan" and maybe help some other unlucky Traveler out there on the road. (One more place a little good Karma don't hurt me none!)
