Things like locking all external storage doors, lowering the antenna, padlocking the tongue latch, are good examples of things that get checked.
I do the EXACT same thing, down to the plastic sleeve. I have one for setup, breakdown, storing, hooking up for towing, etc, etc. But this weekend I found OneNote (free app). Now I have all my checklists on my iPhone. You can check them off as you do them and it removes them from the list. If you have it on your computer, you can create them there and they sync automatically. Check it out.
