-photocells of all types
-1/2 and 3/4 PVC fittings of all types
-UF cable
-paddle fan boxes of all varieties
-boots suitable for muddy conditions
-outdoor lamps (175W MV, 400W MH, 400W HPS)
-digging tools
-spare dry summer shirt
-T87 stat with heat/cool sub-base
-Arlington Gard-n-Post

Feel free to add to the list of items that you carry on the truck especially during the summer time.

While I don't keep things like the digging tools or large lamps on the truck I agree with much of the rest.

I strongly agree with the extra clothes. I sweat. Really sweat. So I am good for two or three shirts on the average summer day.
I also have a supply of shoe covers for those in and out of the jobsite house/office days.

How about a good stock of weatherproof boxes and covers and in-use covers.
I like the P&S in-use covers. They can be used horizontal or vertical.

Don't forget the coveralls and dust masks for rock wool attics, rubber boots for flooded basements and of course the ever popular Greenlee hat. I get compliments on that sucker from everyone, and I'll have to say its as comfy as any hat I've ever worn.

yup can put the wire lube back in, the buried cable caution tape, Wasp Spray, insect repellent my new Greenlee hat :)
Yes, indeed. I was fixing a triplex today, and got hammered by several bees. Went through two cans of bee spray today alone. Those cans don't go far. Yes, stock up on a couple cans of wasp spray... 'tis the season.
