Smile Need a check-off list

Hi Folks, I hope this is the right forum. Almost 3 years ago I purchased a little used 2003 International CCD (22ft). Then life got very complicated, heart problems, then back to work, made to work alot of overtime, now, finally, retired!! Have a 2007 Ford F150 super cab as the TW,. but, have never pulled the AS due to the "complications" Now, I will be having a trailer mechanic highly recomended to me here in the Napa California area to come out to the house, replace the tires, and go over with me ALL the things that need to be done to get the AS road ready. Back before my complications, I remember people listing a check off list to go by just before they left on a trip that covered just about everything to do and look at before leaving on a trip, and everything to do when you arrive at your camping trip. Can anyone help me find that list or send me one? Also, if you had a fairly new, little used, but sitting in your back yard for 3 years AS, what would you have the mechanic check and what would be your concerns, large and small. I know this is a lot of information to send me, but karma will bless you for helping me, thanks in advance, Jim in Napa Valley.

This is just a start. Your TV should have no problems with your trailer. You will need a Weight Distribution Hitch and a brake controller. Prodigy makes the later and there are several WD hitches, ( ie Equil-i-zer, Reese, etc.). Do a search on this forum and you will get more info. than you can use.

Since the trailer has been " lightly used" I assume you have a fresh water hose, power cord and equipment to dump the grey and black water tanks. Leveling blocks, ( Camping World has them), will also come in handy.

Run all the systems, fridge, furnance, AC etc. Have the mechanic check the brakes, tires and batteries and propane system.

I'm sure you will get more replies that will add to this post until you have all the info. you need.

In addition to the new tires, I'd also want to have the wheel bearings repacked, and the electric brakes adjusted.
