Departure and arrival procedure to follow

Being new to camping, i realize that before getting going and upon arriving there are a lot to do thus a lot to forget. As anyone ever took time to write a procedure to follow in order not to forget anything. Dont want to make a mistake that could leed to a mishap like on the other thread, you know dropping fifht wheel on truck and these things that can happen and than become the laught of the town, would not want to have my feelings hurt....., you know...

Procedures and checklists

Micalo,
Welcome aboard.
Questions are good, they mean you are thinking and using your noggin', not afraid to ask if you don't know... I ask things just about every day, still learning things.

Check out this thread where Herk aka Lou posted his list
How do you stow your stuff in the side compartments?

Checklists are really helpful. Ditto on what vasnipe said about Herk's list.

Herk really put some work into his lists so there's no chance of missing anything. I'm a bit more simple & RVing solo so my lists were edited down a bit.

Please do check out Herk's list in the link in the post above that vasnipe provided. It worth the time.

If you are going to read Herk's list make sure you allow yourself 2 or 3 hours of reading time.

No worries, it is very hard to make me mad.
Not impossible; just very very hard.
Only happened 3 times in my life and the last time it took 3 months of constant harrasment to push me over the top.
Said my peace (choice words at volume) and was 120 over 80 in about 10 minutes.

That's a good list to begin with. You'll get an idea for what to do and a good order.

After you review and camp once or twice, I suggest that you modify it for your 5er and your style. Making one up for yourself is the best way to learn.

So do you make your DW read the checklist while you say "Check"? (just 89 more days of this and Lou is going to lose it )

Naw, it was "in your face" finger pointing stuff.
Nothing said with electrons will even ripple my coffee.
