Odds are your first trailer or motorhome won't be your last. Your needs and wants will change depending on your stage of life.

When you can, help someone else. It will make your day (and maybe their week).
When you see that "little" issue with the RV, fix it now!

Buy a lug wrench. Sitting on the side of the road with a flat and having no way to change the tire is a less than ideal time to learn that this new RV you bought doesn't come with one.

Get Out And Look

Get out of the vehicle and look at things yourself. Don't depend on mirrors or "helpers".

BOTH camping partners do a walk-around check before pulling out. Camper #1 can be convinced that everything is good to go and Camper #2 can come behind and find that stabilizers are still on the ground or step has not been stored. Ask me how I know.

Flush twice with two full bowls of water. Water is your friend unless you prefer the brown pyramid of death.
