How do you stow your stuff in the side compartments?

I have a new Georgetown and have plenty of side comparments.
I'd like to see how others with similiar compartments stow their stuff.
I have seen some mount garden hose brackes to hold hoses and cables.
Here are a few pics of my compartments.

I fixed that by creating a "Find It" manual for the camper that is also a checklist for what should be in there for our annual trek to the South.

Here is the latest one. Constantly changing so if you have an old one you can see a lot of what I used to carry is gone now.

I just looked at it and adjusted it to font size 4.5 and got it down to 38 pages. Of course I can't read it now but...

Lou its an excellent list well done. May I use your template for our truck and trailer trip planning. It may come in handy when we cross the border into the states and they want to come in and do everything except watch a movie and have a coffee.

Of course I will have to change the names or my wife Faith may wonder if I've been renting it out over the winter.

Man, if I had to go thru Herk's checklist and carry all that I would have to start a month early and hire someone with a 1T box truck to carry everything.

Whatever is in our trailer stays in the trailer as far as spare things & tools. We load some clothes, re-stock the food supplies, check tires (both truck & trailer), load the dog in the back seat, load snacks and a qt of black coffee and hit the road. Total time after trailer is re-stocked with food & clothes is about an hr max.

Wow, and I thought I had issues with OCD. If I had to take all that stuff with me I think I would quit RVing.

This is the real reason Lou flew the C-130. Couldn't fit all his "gotta have" plane stuff in a F-15!
