    Fire Extinguisher(s)
    First Aid Kit
    Tie Downs and Tow Straps
    Come along
    Electrical repair kit with wire, connectors and crimping tool, fuses etc
    Tie Wraps various sizes
    Duct Tape
    I think were supposed to have some hand wash soap but I don't carry any
    I have been carrying a box of disposable latex gloves for repairs and nasty stuff to keep the hands clean. Works good for cleaning and changing nozzles, filters etc

    All that stuff wouldn't fit behind the seat of my truck. But I carried a spill kit.
    Eye wash kit is good, but also have chemical goggles--particularly important if you carry any concentrate chemicals. I had sunglasses with liquid side shields.
    Cell phone would be handy. Even if you have to pay your employee for each call he makes to you.
    Essential, and probably required by law, liquid soap dispenser and a sprayer filled with wash water only, to clean the hands.

    If space is tight--maybe use duct tape and tape the liquid soap to a 1-quart hand sprayer filled with clear water.

    Anybody else--what is the best way to carry soap and water?

    Best way to carry soap and water is...soap and water in a can. Its a pressurized can with soap and water. I buy cases of it from my supplier.

    They make those Jo-Jo hand wipes in a can. Kinda pricey, but they work nice. It's the same waterless hand cleaner that you wipe off with paper towels, but these are towels pre-soaked in the same thing. Similar to armor all wipes. I kept a tub of them in my semi when I drove cross country. Napa and Oriellys sell them.
