Anyone have a good pre-trip checklist?

Hi Y'all,

In 6 days and 6 hours we leave on our first trip. Does anyone have a good "Don't leave without checking ______ list"?

If you happen to have an ipad there is an RV checklist app. It gives you an arrival and a leaving list. It's great you can also modify it and if you want create a totally new list.

Thanks for asking this. I have been drawing up a checklist for me to use. Being new to the Motor home scene I am still a bit unsure about what all I should bring.

We have a list we add to every trip the things we forgot the last trip. We keep this list on the kichen counter in the house and add when we think of something. IMO a walk around and a look under and over the coach is always a good thing to do just before I am ready to start the coach. My co-pilot (DW) checks the stairs to make sure they came in.

We never use a list and I can't remember ever forgetting anything. We keep the RV stocked with everything except most of the groceries, drinks, bottled water, dog food, laptops and clean clothes. We can split in an hour.

Always, always do a slow walk around before moving the rig. Check the toad, and then check it again.
