List of "do's" before moving coach.

Does anyone know where I can find a list of items to check before moving the coach? I can figure it out but since I'm new to this I might miss something important. I noticed my HD dish up last week; I thought I had lowered it. I could have started down the road that way if I didn't look up and just happen to see it.

You should be able to do a search and find several on this site. However, I made my own as some of the check lists contained items that didn't apply, etc. I had my list posted on the visor above the driver's seat and that way I could do a quick check before hitting the road.

I always do 2 walk-arounds, looking at slides, compartment doors, awnings, windows, satellite dishes, etc.

I have had a motorhome since 1974. I used to use a checklist, but found a walkaround is almost as good. For the TV/SAT ant. I found the best answer is a key that will not fit your MH. I found an old ford key (Or you can buy a new blank) Install a ribbon on the key. Write ANT. on the ribbon. Everytime you let the ant up, stick the key in the Ignition. When you get ready to go, let the ant. down and remove the key.

I use a program on my iPhone called "RV Check". It was either free or $.99. It has basic checklists already loaded which can be edited. You can create numerous checklists i.e. Arriving, Departing, Toad etc. I like it's flexibiliy. You can drag items into order and add or delete items at will. It also had "check" feature that let's you check items of then reset for the next trip. I used it to create my own lists and add items if and when I choose.

I use a check list...old airplane habit. Re the check list by RVThere...my manual says to move the slides in or out while the MH is level. Therefore, when setting up...jacks down then slides out; when leaving... slides in and jacks up.

I have clothspins for the TV antenna,coffee pot and computer printer.Clothespins go on steering wheel when item is used. Back on item when stowed or lowered.If we stop and leave toad connected but key turned off the key is hung on the wheel with a clothspin.When the wheel is clear we are ready to move.
