Moderators SeaDawg Posted September 16, 2018 Moderators Share Posted September 16, 2018 We have several first aid kits. One in the truck. One in the trailer, front of the shelf of the closet. Another bigger bag, more extensive, that moves from the boat to the hall closet, or can move to the truck, for longer trips. I also carry a very few items in my purse, and tuck a few in the glove box. One of the routine checklist items at the beginning of the season is to empty each kit and check the contents for missing or damaged/expired items. The general rule is also to replace items if they've been used at the next drug store or Walmart stop. Last trip, I spent an hour replacing the last of the g4 halogen bulbs in little used fixtures with LEDs. On the very last one, at the foot of the bed, I took off my glasses to see the tiny holes for the g4 prongs, as I see better close up without the glasses. Big mistake #1. I got a sharp pain in my eye when a piece of something fell into my unprotected eye. The slot for eye drops and eye wash was empty in the first aid kit. I'd neglected to replace it last time... Fortunately, I was able to hold my lid aside and cry it out. But, it could have been serious. I discovered a few other empty slots... antacid, and topical benadryl for bug bites. Filled them all when we went into town. Don't neglect your kit like I did.... Keep it up to date.
