We borrowed a trailer on a couple of occasions from another Scout troop for extended trips. It had the things you and others mentioned, but instead of the portable air tank, they had a 12V Coleman compressor/air pump with extra cord to reach the trailer wheels. Everything was stowed in a tool box that stayed with the trailer, and had a printed inventory that had to be checked before leaving and upon return.

In the toolbox was: A small can of PB Blaster, a small tube of grease, a set of trailer wheel bearings, and whatever tools necessary to change the bearings. Even if you don't change the bearings yourself, you have a set on Sunday afternoon when you're broken down 22 miles south of nowhere. There was also a plugging kit for punctures in a tire sidewall to at least try to limp home.

There was also a Mini Mag light, spare bulbs, fuses, a strip of emery cloth, spare electrical connectors for both trailer and towing vehicle, needle nosed pliers with wire cutter, red tape, (for emergency to cover broken tail light lens) a small roll of electrical tape, and a few pieces of heat shrink tubing.

A good pair of leather gloves, some nitrile gloves, a poncho, a tube of waterless hand cleaner, shop rags, and a gardeners kneeling pad. A very basic first aid kit, a spare padlock and keys. One of those LED lights that clips on the bill of a cap is handy when you need both hands and can't hold the light.

Fortunately, we never needed to use any of it, and hope you never do either.

if hauling trailer wouldnt leave without a extra hub and set of bearings... and would make sure the bearings had been packed within the last year or 10.000 miles witch ever comes first per mfg.in a previous life worked on rvs for a living. and we all know what rv stands for (ruined vacation):shock: so ounce of previntions worth the pound of cure.just my 2 cents

My left index finger is now 1/16 shorter thanks to a very sharp brisket knife.
Duct tape only stops some of the bleeding. :roll:
