good points Cmax ! Do the minimum 'urgent' things at first and then take your time when it's cooler for the rest

my first regard when setting up is get the 50 amp hooked up to get the AC's cooling
course it IS summer in Texus, so that has a bearing on my priorities !

No sweat


Back into the space designated. Check the side-to-side level indicator on front of the trailer. If it 1 ball or less to one side I extend the manual front leg and additional hole or 2 then run them down until both have weight on them. Check the level indicator if close to level I put the weight on the front legs I normally do to unhook. Remove truck. Level for and aft extend rear stabilizers. Then water and electric. I do sewer only before we leave or when the shower gray tank is full.

Total time 10 to 20 min.

You got it, that should be the drill for everyone, I have that side to side level on my king pin and I'm getting to the point now I check it first right after I back in. Once you get in the habit the rest is easy.
