Mechanical problems can occur at any time, so it’s wise to carry the tool kit and owner’s manual that came with your vehicle.
In addition, you should carry some spare parts and emergency items.
- Cell phone (may not work in remote areas)
- Electrical and duct tape
- Extra key
- Extra spark plugs—worn plugs are the number one cause of engine stalling
- First-aid kit
- Headlight and taillight bulbs
- Sturdy tow rope or chain
- Survival kit
- 25 feet of nylon rope
