A couple things on my list that I don't think were mentioned are locking down the stove vent flap as well as the propane tank cover flap. I've replaced them both from flapping off during travel. I've never been a big fan of the lock down thumb screws for the propane tank cover so I don't mess with them anymore and just lift the cover off when I need access.

YES! that darn stove vent has got me a couple of times! Fortunately it is on the driver's side and I will see it banging away in the wind and am able to stop and secure it before it has broken.

Got a kick out of this "CheckList" at a campground we visited

Thank you for the rv checklist app. It's .99 right now.
Takes us about 2 hours to do it all. We can't open it up at home so we have to clean and unload before we leave. We're still working on our system.

Saw a sign like that in a small RV park in Flagstaff, AZ. last year, must be a common problem.......

We also use a checkliist. The only time we screw up is when people come over to talk with us as we are going through our pre-depature tasks. Now I have learned to stop what I am doing, have a short conversation, and then go back to the exact point on the checklist to finish. Working and talking doesn't work for me!

Left camp a week ago with a huge storm upon us, sheer force winds. Packed up in 15 minutes and the antenna was not down all the way. We never use the antenna but with tree sat did not work. It was put down by a tree somewhere leaving. I am going to just shorten the rods and all is good. The DW has never been left behind lol.
