Cool Checklist

Hello Everyone........I'm a new Member and also a new owner of a 19' Safari. I would enjoy hearing from someone about checklists before hooking up and when parking the camper....also Ihave it parked in a storage lot and it's already dirty.........should I wax the rig or just wash it??
Best to you all, Robert

Welcome to the Forums!

As far as checklists go, here's a couple to get you started: Checklists

Most everybody kinda develops their own after going through the process of hitching up & moving down the road a couple of times. You may find some other lists by performing a search using "checklist" as your keyword.

With a new 2007 trailer, a good wash and wax would probably be in order, especially if it's never been waxed - gotta protect that clearcoat. I'm not as familiar with the "care & feeding" of the new ones...but many here online are. Hopefully someone will chime in. I believe Airstream recommends the Walbernize line of products. Personally, I would stick with their recommendations. Again, if you search using "Walbernize" as your keyword, it'll give you some rading material to catch up on until someone else posts a direct reply.

Search probably for "checklist" and you should find many.

Here is what I use when departing:
Check List – Pulling Out
  • Vents closed
  • Outside thermometer retrieved and stowed
  • Hot water heater, water pump off
  • Cupboards latched, loose stuff secured, table secured
  • Door double-locked
  • Awning secured
  • Stabilizers up
  • Chocks, blocks stowed
  • Dump hose, electric cable, TV, water hose stowed
  • Storage lockers closed
  • Forward windshield secured
  • Steps stowed
  • Sway bar & torsion bars attached
  • Chains, breakaway secure
  • Receiver locked to truck, coupler locked to hitch
  • 7-pin cable locked
  • Truck mirrors extended
  • Trailer lights (running, brake, turn) OK

Good list, but I'd add, "wind down TV Antenna", "put extra ice in fridge/freezer to keep food cold", "fully raise the hitch pin"

You need two lists...
1. Items to pack before the trip
2. A Wal-Mart list for items you forgot.
