Missing items

Nice checklists Michael ... but your departure checklist doesn't say anything about putting the wife and dog in the tow vehicle.

I've learned from experience that they get pretty upset if you forget.

Don't do to Buddy and Lori what I once did to Pam and Maggie.

I really thought I was supposed to meet them at the dump station ... and that they were walking up there to meet me.

interior depart check list,,, "turn off potable water pump and bleed water line pressure" I failed to do this once, and pumped the whole potable H2O tank onto the floor. Was my face ever red!

order

Are these in order of doing? Now I realize that I don't have a sway bars so I don't know when those are disconnected, but I do know that there is no way I can unhook my trailer, postion, then chock it. we had a nice discussion of things we've done we shouldn't have, and not chocking before disconnect was one of the oops. so thought I'd check and see if order of doing could be adjusted, if that's important.

Good observation Jana, :wave

How about making a new list in the order it should go and I'll post it at the top so everyone, that wants to, can print just the first page?

Make sense?:o
