Before a long trip, I always have my mechanic go over the moho with a fine tooth comb. Oil change, lube, tire pressures, and any other maintenance on the moho and the Jeep. I wash and wax her, looking for anything out of the ordinary. Make sure the batteries are good, too. Then, I lube the slides and the retracting steps. I check the propane, and turn the fridge on. We take clothing in layers, in case you hit some cold weather. I try to get this all done several days before leaving, preventing stress and short-notice repairs. That way I am excited about leaving.
We turn the water to the house off, if you do not, make sure to at least turn the water off behind the washer and dryer. Tell the neighbors to watch your place, notify the police to put your house on a vacation watch. Cancel the newspaper, put your mail on hold.
Finally, think about where you are going to stay along the way. If we know for sure of a place we want to visit, we may or may not make reservations, depending on the time of year. We prefer to travel with no reservations, and rarely has this been a problem. Know where to get fuel ahead of time, watch the weather, we usually look at the department of transportation apps for the state we are traveling thru to check on road conditions.
Sounds like a lot, but this routine keeps us on track. We usually travel about 300 miles per day, but can stretch it if needed. We very seldom travel after dark, and the same with inclement weather. Arriving by 3 pm makes life much better when camping. And, keep the wife happy! Happy wifey, happy lifey. . . . .
Enjoy your adventure!
BTW, I just noticed you started this thread under the Nat'l forum. Hopefully it will be moved to a travel forum so you get many more responses.
