Great advice. My drawbars are removed between uses and placed in storage. They are carried by the hitchball each time and inspected going both ways. We also check the wiring, lights
, chains, coupler, hitch, and tire pressure before each trip.
We test our water system and appliances and run a checklist on windows
, doors, vents, and locks, Even checking the lid on the toilet and the stock of toiletries, first aid kit...ETC.
While some of these are more crucial than others, I always find it easier to make adjustments in my nice warm shop with all the tools and parts, than along side the road in the dark and rain.
Which reminds me... weigh your propane
tank. A twenty pounder will weigh about 18lbs empty and about 38lbs full. before we got a guage we always kept the ones under 25lbs for home grill use.
