In prep for my next cross country trip, I've been packing my box of spare parts. Just wondering if anyone has some additional suggestions?
  • Awning Ball Receivers
  • Bungee Ends Hooks
  • Bungee Under Bunk Hooks
  • Camper Fuses
  • Fuses for Tow Vehicle (in cabin & under the hood)
  • Battery Fuse
  • Solar Panel Fuse
  • Shepherd Pole Ends
  • LED Lights
  • Bolts for Steps
  • Battery Box Strap
  • PUGS Bungee End Hooks

not spare parts, but either have your solar gadgets' manuals with you as a hard copy or as pdfs on a tablet or laptop (or a phone). Especially if an app needs a OEM password.

spare parts are not too important as you are never too far from a source - like common fuses at any hardware store or auto parts house. And something larger, like a small Inverter or chargere or even a solar suitcase can be picked up at a harbor freight (as I did). Lugging around too much spare stuff gets old after a few trips.

While I’ve never needed spare bearings, seals and such, I’ve seen enough trailers on the side of the road with one hub off I think a spare set is prudent.
Around here the likely suspects are firewood or boat trailers.

I’ve got a little plastic tub of assorted screws, nuts and bolts on board. I also have a little coil of electric wire or two. I have snagged a wire or two pulling into a spot at night while boondocking a time or two.

Good luck and beware the long list.

@PopUpSteve your list has some items I don't carry but I always have a few crimp butt connectors and ring terminals, never needed them though. Plus I have a couple of nuts and bolts for the propane tank mounts, I have needed those.
