Must Have RV Tools
Let’s face it – stuff happens. And when it does, you need the right tool to fix it. Your RV has all the same systems as your automobile and your home put together, in a much smaller space.
Engine, air conditioning, running water. Suddenly, you’re the do-it-yourself expert. We’ve been in the RV business for a long time at Quality RV Resorts, so we know what you need…
1. Torque wrench – Use for pre-trip setting of proper lug torque on your trailer wheels and from time to time on the truck lug nuts.
2. Socket set – Many tools in one carrying case. Sooner or later, you’ll need them all.
3. Tire gauge – Guard against blowouts and save fuel with proper inflation of all tires.
4. Multi-meter – quickly check fuses, RV park power pedestals, and test batteries.
5. Multi-bit screwdriver – probably going to be your most-used tool.
6. Needle-nose pliers – handy for wiring jobs and whenever you need to get a grip on a really small part.
7. Wire stripper/crimper – An essential tool if you are required to do any RV wiring repairs or installations.
8. Lineman pliers – If you’ve ever tried to extract a stripped screw or bolt, you know why you need these.
9. Channel lock pliers – use for plumbing, hose ends and Pex pipe connections.
10. Utility (Exacto) knife – handy all-around cutting tool and box knife.
11. Cordless drill – no cord to tangle while making repairs.
12. Cordless screwdriver – light-weight and the ideal size for fixing things in small spaces.
13. Oscillating multi-tool – replace your saws, sanders, and scrapers with this gizmo. You’ll wish you had bought one sooner.
14. Air compressor – Top off your tires’ PSI and handy for blowing out the water lines prior to putting the RV in storage.
15. LED flashlight – A good flashlight is a must have.
16. Caulking gun – As the RV ages, it needs attention to its many seams and seals to prevent a dreaded water leak.
17. Infra-red temperature gun – keep tabs on wheel hubs and tire temperatures during stops out on the road.
18. Axe – chop up firewood or use it as a heavy hammer.
19. Hive tool – Useful for prying up old sealant and RV roof vents.
20. 13’ Folding telescopic ladder – You need this ladder to get on top of your RV.
