Yep. $518 today to replace the circuit board in my furnace. I'm on the road. The sense of humor helps.
But I also carry spares. Here's what I remember of the top of my head:
- another ProLux digital thermostat
- a propane regulator that I didn't really need to replace
- two sail switches for the furnace (which is on my bad side tonight)
- a water pump, bought on sale
- an old shower head and hose
And in the future I'll carry a spare circuit board for the furnace
I followed Eggscape's plan and made a pull-out drawer of four 8x8-inch plastic milk crates from Home Depot. One of these crates is labeled "Spares" and it is pretty full. The drawer fits under the bed.
I also have one of those little sets of parts drawers that you can get at Lowe's (e.g.) secured in one of my lower storage compartments with Velcro. Its labeled drawers have fuses, screws, pens, wire nuts, wire ties, wire wraps, coax connectors, Pex connectors, etc. (But I left my Pex tool at home. Dang.)
Keep in mind what you need to take depends upon your RV lifestyle. I'm in my Escape for months at a time, sometimes in out of the way places. YMMV, as Donna says.
