Repacked bearings, cleaned interior of camper, started to re-stock camper. Next weekend plan to de-winterize and prepare for 1st camping trip April 5. Anyone else getting ready for 2013 camping? Our first trip is planed for Lancaster, PA.

For the most part I'm ready. Batteries are charged just gotta put them in. Propane is full. I am getting news tires and will also check bearings out should only need a shot of grease. Other things will come as I go but I am so ready to get out.

I hope to get it out of the farm shed and brought to the house this weekend. Won't go until April 26th but I have a list of jobs and only have 2 weekends where we are not playing softball to get things done.

List:
Install 2 new tv's on wall mounts
Check water heater
Check furnace
Clean bedding (stored in big tubs but will wash and put out)
Measure master bed to purchase 4" memory foam mattress
Clean camper top to bottom inside each cabinet
Purchase the 'staples' that stay in camper
Pack my new chairs and cast iron set I got from in-laws for xmas
Measure space between tanks and camper to possibly mount a storage box
Look at black tank lights, last outing the 3/4 full didn't come on and it was almost full tank. (Surprise)
Reset the WDH for towing with the Suburban now instead of the F150
Consider purchase of new batteries (doesn't have them)
Check tires, brakes, hubs
Weight everything.

Thanks for starting this thread it got me to thinking what I need to do.
