I've heard several of you mention an ABC list of camping before pulling out but I can't find it. Will some of you wiser Rvers list some of the things we need to do before pulling out in our 26T Wilderness TT. I want to print out the list and keep it in the TT. Thanks so much.

020202, you can do a search by clicking on the "Find" button and enter the check list you are looking for. I came up with about three pages of results on these lists. Good luck and enjoy!

Hi 020202 from Prince George. I found this site and thought it might just fit your needs.

http://www.angelfire.com/trek/buenavistas/

He has several checklists available.

One of the most common things that RVers do not do is put down their TV antenna. Our old RV had a signal but the current one does not and we forgot to do it one time and had some damage done to the mechanism. Now I have a list and it is on there. At one RV park they even had a small sign as you left and that was on there along with do you have your wife/husband on board?

I have found that while the "canned" checklists are handy, it is better to sit down and create your own that is specific to you and your set-up. This way, you can add things that are unique and/or change the order to be in concert with the way you do things.

Use the available existing checklists as a point of departure.

At Camping World and other RV supply stores you can get a hang down that works as a reminder to do this so it must be pretty common. Now we do have our own checklist and keep it on the computer where we add to it from time to time. It is amazing what you might forget to do so it is best to double check. Some things cost money. I always think of the saying you do not have time to do it right but you have time to do it over. Instead you do not do it right so it ends up costing you money in an RV.

This is exactly what I did. http://www.disneycampers.com has a list as do a couple of other places I can't remember. I printed all of them, adjusted to fit our needs, then put them in a spreadsheet. I categorized them by perishable, things that need restocking on occasion, things that should always be there, personal items, food, etc. That way it is easy to do. The "things that should always be there group" I can do a week ahead and then the "perishable food" group happens the day before. If anyone would like me to email them my list, I would be happy to. Just remember, it has been edited for a popup so tips like put the antennae down won't be on there.

I agree, I downloaded the checklist I was interested in from http://www.angelfire.com/trek/buenavistas/ as a template and then went to editing. I plan on plastisizing it and just using a dry-erase pen to check off the items on the list as they get accomplished. This may be a bit much for some people but the way my memory seems to be nowadays I have to have my name written on the inside of my glasses so I can glance up once in awhile to see who I am.
