Put your TV antenna down as well as close the vents on a TT.

Sometimes analog is a good backup for digital (I use both). A few labeled cloths pins on the flipped down visor only removed "after" the task is done, not when I start out to do the task. It is easy to be distracted on the way to do one thing and ending up seeing and doing something else. Visor does not go up until all the cloths pins are stowed.

Antenna down
Welcome sign stowed
Outside thermometer brought inside
etc. Small things, but aggravating when left behind and thought of an hour down the road.

Have fun safely
Paul

2 smoke/carbon monoxide detectors, multiple fire extinguishers (3 in mh and 1 in toad), proper sized wheel chocks for mh and toad, minimum 8 ton hydraulic jack for mh and 2 ton floor hack for toad, 2 ton jack stands to put under mh or toad in case jacks fail. Truckers atlas, GPS, and a membership to iRV2

Not a safety issue, but be sure to have a good set and variety of tools to handle most of the problems that can arise.

What a joke RVIA approved fire extinguishers are.

I mitigated that problem and I now carry five extinguishers inside and outside my coach.

I suggest you do the same or at least replace the original.
And carry GOOD ones too, those little guys they put on board aren't all that great. They might put out a pan of bacon that just broke out, but other than that....

I have a feeling that was pretty humorous to watch in hindsight
