I created a check list by coming out the door and turning left. I looked up and down in about a two foot wide vertical column of space and list anything that can move or be latched or whatever. I went all the way around. In the vicinity of the power cord/tv cable, water line and sewer snake, I do what is necessary while at that spot.
Lap two was backed away from the trailer to check things on the roof like antennas and hatches. Then I make sure all four stabilizers are stowed.
Then I do the hookup check list to the truck and double check all the safety pins and cables and check turn signals and brake lights.
I finish by double checking the inside for power switches to every appliance in the correct position, water drained in sinks and toilet bowl, fantastic fans secured for travel or cracked a smidgen for ventilation, refrigerator doing it's thing, lights off, doors and drawers secured for travel. I then close the door and lock both locks, stow the step and double check the curb side storage door is locked with all the the tools inside. Going toward the truck, I verify I have the mirrors in the extended position for towing, tailgate is up and locked, another quick look at the hitch lock pins, weight distribution arms are in the proper location and padlock on the catch and the seven wire cable is secure.
Then it is time to get underway. It is better to take the extra five minutes to check twice and not generate extra repairs. I am in no race to see how fast I can get on the road or to setup camp.
