You bring up a good point. This is why I've accumulated so much junk. I'm afraid to leave something I'd need to buy again. Sewer hoses, electrical cables and adapters and whatnot.

This seems easy.

Get a couple good boxes and place one near where yiu are working.

One bin or cabinet at a time completely empty it to bare bones so you can clean it with a simple wipe of damp rag.

As you are removing items you are touching everything.

If it is part of the old unit specific to the unit like a remote or tool toss it in one box called mh only.

If it is a handy thing you have for use with the unit and not sure if new one needs it toss it in the other box labeled optional stuff.

Repeat until completely empty.

Repeat search every nook and cranny then inventory and place the items staying where they belong or organize in the unit someplace.

The optional stuff depends on if you need it or not.

Inspect everything going into new unit from old to verify not for old.

Last do final walk through old as new owner asking yourself as you touch everything where is the manual remote or ?? For whatever you are touching.

I agree especially Manuals, remotes, and things that came with the motorhome originally.

We transferred stuff over from the 40' Dutch Star to the Magna inside the dealers storage/showroom area. Took us two full days too. Ended up with the van full of stuff since the old one was packed to the gills and we haven't filled the new ones cubby holes even now. Still have boxes of food and condiments in the stick house and stuff on the back deck that I've sorted out. Gonna be a big garage sale later this year!
The DW can't drink now due to the liver cancer so we'll be giving that away. Too bad to as we finally found a wine that we both like and bought three cases of it.

Our dogs have their own private vacation accommodations. It's called the kennel.

When we traded our 5th wheel, we left a new MOR/Ryde 90" sliding tray in the basement that I had just installed a few months earlier. We also left a Progressive HW50C EMS, one of the reasons we have a portable this time. We did take the 65 qt ARB outdoor fridge/freezer. It will fit right on the sliding tray if the factory Dometic ever gives up.
