So true. Remember, that 9'7" is the roof height and does not include the AC. With that it is more like 10'6". But like you, anything under 11' and I will have a spotter just in case.

Wow, after reading the posts, I've realize we're NOT the only crazy people!

Even after years of camping, we still forget silly things like bread, a toothbrush, a cell phone charger, and dish detergent. (And that was just last camping season!)

Expect hat something will always happen, we just laugh at it and remember what happened.
Our checklist is the best thing we have and add to it each time something new occurs. Relax is good advice. Anytime I don't check the checklist it comes back to haunt me - no exceptions there!

By George, I think we got it!! Thanks to everyone here we managed to get our summarization completed. Did have a couple of quick final questions if anyone could chime in;
- we hooked up to city water to make it easier but also had the pump running - would this damage the pump?
- we realized after we didn't add a fresh filter - can we just disconnect the city water and remove the filter canister?
- was double checking the hot water heater area and noticed a slight drip from the release valve - should I be concerned?


Thanks everyone for the great help and assistance.

Well that's easy enough.

- nope.
- yep.
- nope. If you are getting a steady drip you might work it around a bit to reseat it, but it should be fine.

Sounds like you're good to go.

You could damage the water pump if the FW tank is empty.
But if it ran a short time, it should be fine.

If you've got city water turned on, I have to ask why your pump is running? The city water pressure should be high enough to keep the pump from running.

I think what rock meant to say was you do not need to turn on the pump if you are using city water

No, I said what I meant. If his pump is running with the city water turned on, then either his city water pressure is WAY low, or the pressure switch that shuts off the pump is broken or set too high.

But you're right, too. If he has city water, he can/should turn off the pump.

In regards to his 2nd question, he should turn off the city water AND the pump before he replaces the filter.
