I have gone camping with several individuals and on several occasions, that upon arrival at the campgrounds discovered that they had left their power cord sitting at home. The more things I have to remember to bring ,the more things I tend to forget

We USED to be of the opinion, pack two of everything in case someone else forgets some thing...

Now, (lighten the load/weight), pack for solo crusin....

We don't even take the clothes out when the trailer is parked . I keep a couple pairs of socks ,underwear ,T shirts , shorts , a pair of jeans, a sweatshirt , and a shirt in a plastic tub under the bed . Stays in the trailer all summer except to wash or wear. For a 2 or 3 day trip. all we need to do is load the refrigerator and go. Remember In Wisconsin "Plaid" is acceptable / norm in all social settings or occasions so packing clothes for a trip is really easy

Yep, I have not even been camping in my old Scamp yet and have already decided to leave some heavy extra cords at home. The Boy Scout in me said to pack everything, until sense prevailed. I just happened to pick up three 25’ 30amp RV extension cords cheap at a flea market several years ago. Fast forward to this year and me finally buying a 30amp plugged RV. Great I think, I will pack these in the trailer (in case I am a 100’ from the pole I suppose). Hummm, what are the chances of being 100’ from the power in a State Campground? So, I will pack ONE extra 25’ 30 amp cord, if I end up more than 50 feet from the pole I will scoot the Scamp a little closer.

My rule when taking down camp is whatever you remove, immediately goes in the trailer. That way, nothing gets lost. There's no point removing things, setting them down outside, and *hopefully* loading them later.

When I unplug the cord, it stays in my hand until it's back in its cabinet.
