Thank God I don't make lists. I would either have to shoot myself or quit RVing if I thought I actually had that many things to be done before I could go out on our next trip.
Good luck and God Bless.

My RV list

  1. Replace rotted wood under frame where there is a "skirt" of aluminum.
  2. Remove surface rust from frame, repaint.
  3. Remove wire nuts from electric brake line splices and redo connections (previous owner must have used the wire nuts)
  4. Reinstall new flat molding on ceiling.
  5. Kool-Seal roof.
  6. Re-caulk roof seams and end caps.
  7. Replace slide-out weatherstripping.
  8. Replace slide-out cover fabric (current fabric is 13 years old)
  9. Rewire battery bank and reconfigure battery switch.
  10. Add permanent fuel tank and filler plumbing for generator.
  11. Replace shore power cord with Marinco connector.
  12. Build shelves for BluRay player, DirecTV receiver, and Wii in the former TV cabinet.
  13. Add small flat screen TV in bedroom.
  14. Add outdoor shower.
  15. Re-route King-Dome controller wiring to TV shelf.
  16. Add Jefatech Wi-Fi antenna and router.
  17. Add turn signal repeaters on each side of fifth-wheel.
  18. Fix four-wheel drive on tow vehicle (bad vacuum line)
  19. Wash and wax exterior.
  20. Adjust governor on generator.
  21. Repack wheel bearings and inspect brakes.
  22. Inspect and clean ignition and gas tubes on refrigerator, furnace, and water heater.
  23. Replace electric element in water heater.
  24. Build permanent step in bathroom for entry into shower.
  25. Install Oxygenics shower head.
  26. Add Edge monitor on tow vehicle.
  27. Replace antenna mount for HF/VHF amateur radio on tow vehicle (young son sheared off antenna by accident).
  28. Add pass-through hatch for amateur radio cables for use during real or simulated emergencies.
It sounds like a lot, but my rig is about to turn seventeen years old. Fixing what's in need of repair or replacement should keep me busy until next spring. But I don't think the list will ever get shorter. The rig gets older, there are always new toys coming out that I would like to add, and spending money on the fifth-wheel will keep me from buying a pontoon boat.

Hate to do this to myself but here it goes.

Remove everything from basement storage, rearrange neatly and remove anything we don't use.
New water filter
Unplug and run new residential fridge overnight on inverter to test how the batteries will hold up
Sanitize fresh water tank
Wash & wax again
Continue loading everything needed to escape to Florida till spring
Buy new seats for Zodiac boat in basement (sitting on coolers not cutting it)
Check tire pressure
Buy or make solar shade for windshield

Next spring/summer list:
New carpet or laminate floor
Replace tube TVs
Oil & filter
Fuel filters

Two minutes after posting I will think up ten more.

You're a riot....just when I think it's the end, I keep scrolling down; just kept laughing. Really, I think most of it is minor stuff that could wait forever. Can you enlist some help? Maybe one of those guys outside Home Depot??

I think there are 15 things on the list right now.

Every time I mark one off, I add two more to do.
