By the time you carry enough parts to fix your RV there won't be any room for you to sleep at night. Just when you think you brought everything that could brake nothing you bring will ever brake. It's called Murphy's law. It will brake but you won't have the part. I just carry some tools and hope it's a simple fix. I did however bend a wheel hub and It was out about 10 degrees. No way can you fix that on the road. I was a long way from a repair shop about 250 miles. Cost me 4 tires new axle only $4,700.

If you carried all of this stuff you would need a tractor trailer following you and it might be overloaded.

That's true. I have found that what breaks is never what you have prepared for. It's always something else.

We have been full time for year, and i can say most of my spare stuff like our spare slide motor is still in the garage. I have had 4 slide cables snap, and thats even with checking them monthly and adjusting. They dont take up much room so i keep them handy.

I replaced our water pump with a "quiet" one and kept the original as a spare. We use it for a transfer pump now when boondocking.

Other than that the stuff that broke was major stuff like a front jack. But the small stuff saves ya everyday headaches, like spare hose washers and fuses.
