Playa Orb Repair Checklist

Out in the desert, it will be difficult to run to Fry's if we blow a fuse. So lets take everything we'll need for every possible scenario.

One idea is for every system to be responsible for emergency repairs to their system. However if we can consolidate a checklist of things we'll need before we get there, we can reduce duplicates of materials we haul out there, and we can make sure we don't overlook anything.
