And if you have no partner? That's my biggest thing. When my wife was alive she'd always be back there telling me if things were okay and also if my lights were working properly. Guess I'll have to get my eyeballs extended. I can see this turning into a big comedy. Hopefully not of errors.

I would be very interested in your lists.

If you have no partner, you have two choices:
1. Go slowly, and jump out frequently to look around and UP (tree limbs, eaves, etc); or
2. pray a lot

This Fiberglass RV - Document Center - arrival and departure checklist is a version of my checklist(s) that I originally wrote 7 years ago and kept updating as I made changes to my Fiber Stream. I got my ideas from earlier checklist threads on this site.
