    Fluid, one hose and a solenoid, along with the the appropriate tools is all I recommend. If your willing to go out and buy 4 new hoses and the whole wagon, you might consider a Emergency Kit directly from Fisher.

    The kits are handy to have! I bought one last year after I had a cotter pin fall out and lost the pin that held 1 side of my plow to the headgear, and had to drive 1-1.5hrs depending on traffic to get to the dealer for a 5$ pin.... The kit I bought I think was around $120 and I think it was a put together by the dealer, not an actual fisher kit, but very similar....

    Just make sure you keep it in the truck, I had a stupid moment today when plowing and the main solenoid started sticking, keeping the pump running without hitting any buttons, so each time it would stick, I'd have to hop out of the truck, pop the cover off the pump assy and tap the solenoid.... Stupid me, I forgot that the spare parts kit had a solenoid in it, I thought it was just a hose or 2 and some pins etc, so I babied the thing, banging the solenoid every few passes and finished my route, then drove the 1.5 hrs each way to the dealer for an 18$ solenoid, which I found out when I got to the dealer was actually in the parts kit in my garage....
