You guys are clearly novices. The three ingredients to any successful project or repair are duct tape, WD40 and cable/zip ties.

Personally I'm not that convinced by the WD40, but I understand that for many is is an article of faith, which it would be impolite of me to question.

Required Equipment

When we started RVing some 11 years ago, my nephew gave me a Leatherman. Of the last 4000 days, it's been on my belt at 3500 days. I use it practically every day for something.

As to Jim's list and other's trailer requirements, we have them all as well but the Leatherman is the last one I'd give up.

Yeah, between the Gerber tool (like a Leatherman) on my belt and the Swiss Army knife in my pocket, I can save a lot of time avoiding the tool box.
