It's funny that none us ever forget the "beverages" ! I guess because the cooler is the first thing packed

The opposite problem is leaving stuff in the trailer that you need at home, like all the tools we own, couldn't even find a hammer at home! Now we have just about 2 of everything. As you can tell, we're still new to this.
Going out for the first time this weekend, wish us luck, haha.

One of the most important things you should bring is a notepad and pen.
Each time you think of something you want or forgot to pack- write it
down.
Make your own pack list which will need editing often at first but later on
will become close to perfect with use.
I keep our pack list as a word document on the desktop of my PC.
Before each trip I print the list and we scratch thru items as they are
packed.
Every once in a while we write something new on the list and I make
changes to the doc on the desktop.

Not what did we forget to pack so much as "Did we close the garage doors and set the alarm?". Have had to turn around more than once to go back and check. We now pull to the end of the drive and one of us will ask "Garage doors closed, alarm set?".

We keep a pad of paper on the counter several weeks before we go and write down things we need right up until we leave. It seems to help out a lot.

You can't make things idiot proof, you can only make them idiot resistant.

We forgot the camera but were only a couple miles when we remembered it.

I now try to forget it every time, we had left the garage door open .

I am bad about forgetting my trailer keys. It actually works out good for me that the CH751 key is so common to RV's, cause I have ended up several times having to borrow one of my camping buddies, so I can get into my storage compartment where my chocks, cords, and stuff are.

I decided I would keep my spare set in my truck, as to always have a back-up when I forgot my main set. However, I also have the nasty habit of being lazy around the house and will usually get my spare set out of my truck when needing something out of the camper at home, instead of walking in the house to get the main set. I then usually put the spare set in my pocket and they end up back in the house..........exactly where they don't need to be. So the next camping trip, I forget they are both in the house.....and have to borrow my neighbors key, again.
