Travel checklist is honestly off topic for this thread. Please have that discussion elsewhere.

This thread is about checklists for efficiently parking / camping so you can get down to having fun, followed by safely / efficiently hitting the road afterward.

The All-Important Checklist

Proven effective.... we tested this list during our maiden voyage and it worked. We caught ourselves on a few items like unlocked windows and a loose sewer discharge cap. You may want to add a few items but I kept it focused on Up, Down, All around mantra along with what to do first/second. Hope this is helpful.

TT Arrival Checklist & Departure Checklist

Very nice indeed, thanks for sharing that list! It also gave me a couple more things to check on (e.g. drain the toilet), which is great. Much appreciated.

Checking campsite power source.

[QUOTE=Rocinante;1445078]Thanks. Yeah, I have better names for "sewer hose accoutrements" too, but I can't use them in polite company.

Oh, and here's an update to the checklist. It makes a ton of sense to check the power at your assigned site before you back or pull into it. If it's bad, you'll probably want to move, so why wait til your committed to the site to check

How do you check the power at the Campsite outlet?

The power supply at the seasonal sight I've paid for is 50amp and my trailer and s 30amp. I now I will need an adapter but will this be OK?

Also whilst on the power supply topics. Can I plug a residential power supply into my trailer used by and extension cord?

You can get a simple power tester. I have one made by ideal #61-500. You would also need a 50amp to 30 amp adapter. You can get both for about 10 or 15 dollars. Check Amazon ou your local Camping World.
