Relax, enjoy, and don't sweat the little stuff. Life it too short.

I always do a manual trailer brake check with the brake controler. Although I usually look at the truck info center to see if it displays trailer connected and the amount of gain, I guess I just didn't look one time about 2 years ago and when I did the brake check there was nothing. I got out and the electrical plug was clicked in like it should be. I un plugged and plugged back in and then had brakes.

Make checklists for set up and take down. Use walkie talkies for backing so you don't have to read sign language or shout. Passenger side /driver side is better than right/left. This will save your marriage! Finally, learn to laugh at yourself, chances are the ones watching you have made the same mistakes before.

Make sure your electrical cord can reach the pedestal before unhitching and don't forget to get water if you're not at a full hookup site...

Mine is pretty simple, but often overlooked. ALWAYS turn the water off when you leave the camper. No pressure, no floods to come home to. Seen it happen a few times and it's ugly!

Mine is really simple: GOTTA MAKE TIME TO CAMP..
