Over the years a few things I have that stays in the trailer is;

1. Water Hoses about 100'
2. Sewer Hose about 50'
3. Leveling Blocks and now Anderson Levelers
4. Wheel Chocks
5. AC adapters 50 to 30 and 30 to 110

X2, the rest can be purchased. We have gotten about a mile or 2 down the road and gone back to make sure we closed the garage doors because neither one of us could remember if we closed them. Now we don't leave the drive without double checking. CRS works great with age.

Ha ha, just checking. You have adapters from 50 amp to 30 amp, and 30 amp to 110 amp. I know 15 amp.

Just sounded funny. I have a 30 amp system, but have 50 amp to 30 amp, 15 amp to 30 amp, as well as a 30 amp to 15 amp so if I need to check a pedestal for proper voltage with my tester.

I have found a good tool to help. An app for the smart phone "RV Checklist" free in the app store. Customizable and comes already loaded with most checklist items. Happy rving all!

You folks are hilarious...and to those who forgot their wives you are something else!

We, too, have driven a few miles and each couldn't remember if the garage door was closed so had to double-back just to be sure.

One time, we didn't close the fridge at the house all the way and everything inside was bad after our 3-day camping trip.

Now we have a routine of checking the house stuff (temperature setting, sprinkler system off, lights off, fridge and garage door closed.)

RV and it was cool and raining. Guess who caught %^%$ for several days with lots of laughs.
Ah Man! I hope you towed the dog house with you too. Think I would'a just drove back and dropped the dog out with the key around its neck and kept on going. (whew!)
