You can make life a bit easier by keeping some standard fix-it tools in a canvas bag which you keep in a handy and easily accessible location inside your rig.
When you need to do a simple repair or task it is easier to grab the bag than have to find the individual tools among many others in your outside tool compartment.
Include in the bag:
• screwdriver with two sizes of interchangeable Phillips and slot heads,
• wrench set with both standard and millimeter sizes,
• adjustable wrench,
• compact flashlight,
• duct tape,
• Allen wrench set,
• sandpaper or file,
• small scissors, and
• disposable latex gloves.
With this small set of tools — and some others you find useful — you can perform the majority of small jobs without it becoming a major production.
Got the tools, but no bag? Make a quick trip down to your nearby Harbor Freight Tools — they have a variety of tool bags you can pick up inexpensively. Missing some of these tools? The same outfit can set you up with nearly everything on the list. (Editor: There are lots of tool organizer tote bags around $20 on Amazon.)
