I sure do. I also write down what comes out of each compartment when I put my MH into storage. I have a number assigned to each compartment. It makes repacking easier too.
Remembering where everything is packed away isn't easy and gets harder every year.

As full-timers, maximizing storage space was a necessity from the get-go. We have no pull-thru basements that would really help for the awkward stuff like chairs, tables compressors and small grills.

I measured the bins and found a "perfect" size Sterlite stackable clear plastic bins, exactly the 21" depth of the compartments.

I typed up lists in 18 point so even I could read them. Applied some self-laminating sheets to stiffen/protect them, and inserted those lists inside the outward-facing side of each bin.

In the 5 years we've been full-timing, I've found the need to revise them only twice. Driver's side is the wine cellar, rig cleaning, maintenance and parts; passenger side BBQ, tool box, pantry. Another larger, open bin has the chairs & tables.

The DW types fast, so I inventory the numbered totes and she enters the data.
I then sort and edit, just do a query for what you are looking for.

She has the inside and the groceries inventoried as well, it doesn't take long.

Awesome! I was having thoughts along those very lines. Glad I'm not alone.

All of my stuff is in translucent bins with hinged tops that will fit under the frame rails and organized generally as to use. Water hoses, rv wash materials, etc. in one bin. Grill tools, fire tools, etc. in another. Spare filters and parts, etc. in another. I can see enough through the sides to know which bin is which. Frequently used things on passenger side. Have a three drawer tool box in one small bay with all my tools in it. Large tackle box on top of tool box houses fuses, light bulbs, and small misc. items in trays with dividers. Sewer hoses on expanded metal grating in the lp bay. For lighter items, installed wire shelving above the bottom of the frame rails and keep outside mats, window covers, etc. rolled up and on the shelves. Air compressor, jack pads, blocking, ets. in another bay on the drivers side. Seems pretty well organized, but there is a lot of it. DW does not EVER travel light. We are under weight when fully loaded with fuel, water, etc., but not by a large margin.
