Default Tool kit for TM

Still outfitting our new 2922KS and have 2 questions related to tools to have on board:
1. Are the nuts and bolts predominantly metric or SAE?
2. Any suggestions for a basic tool kit for a TM (sockets, pliers, screw drivers, etc)?
(If these are answered in an existing post - my apologies)
Thanks you!

Most all of the screws are #2 Robertson (Square recess). The bolts for the lifting arms are 1 1/8" , so it's SAE. Otherwise I've gotten by with your ordinary misc. bag of tools ie.,channel locks, flat tip screw driver, phillips hammer, etc.

Years ago, a then-friend liked our TM so much that he bought one for himself. He wasn't RV-savvy, so as a "welcome aboard" gift, I packaged up a goody pack for him. Some of the items may no longer be appropriate, such as 30-amp glass fuses. Others may be of no interest you, so pick and choose at your whim. The Goody Pack contained:

# 194 lamps - clearance lights
# 912 lamps - "porch" lights
#1141 lamps - interior light fixtures
#1156 lamps - tail lights
#1157 lamps - brake/turn-signal lights

7.5 amp glass fuses - spares for the fuse in the back housing of the toilet (no other use)
30-amp glass fuses - spares for the main battery fuse (no other use)
7.5 amp blade fuses - spares for the DC distribution panel in the converter
15-amp blade fuses - spares for the DC distribution panel in the converter

Small cable ties - for holding small things together
Medium cable ties - for holding medium things together
Hose clamps - for holding hoses together
Wire nuts - for holding wires together
Oil - for oiling things, especially the spring bar stubs each time you hook up
Grease - for greasing things, especially the hitch ball each time you hook up
Dry lube with teflon – for lubing things that will be exposed to dirt and grit. Specifically, the screws in the stabilizers jacks.
Allen wrench - actually, it's a stabilizer jack crank. Just add an 18-volt cordless drill
Butane lighter - for lighting up that relaxing cigar while you refuel your generator
Small screwdriver set with interchangeable bits. The TM is assembled with square-drive screws. You can't change a tire (for example) without these.
Digital multitester - in case you want to test your multiple digits.
. As you know, when a gizmo breaks, it is handy to have a spare gizmo at hand. As you also know, if you have a spare gizmo at hand, your gizmo will never break. Therefore this goody pack is really designed to prevent unneeded breakages and failures. It has worked well for me!"

All this reminds me of the recommendation to carry a couple of ratchet straps that could hold the shell down should any of the hold-down latches fail. I suppose if you camp near a town you could always just go into town and pick something up but if you boondock, it could be an issue.
