A quick comment on the above - your order is backwards on the second two. You must bring the Bunk Bedroom slide in before the Living Room Slide.

And, this is important for other folks reading and considering your list. My RotoChoks (similar to your X-Chocks) are the only chocks that I use. I don't use separate wheel chocks, so they don't come off until after I connect to the truck. Wheel chocks are always after hooking up. I see you're using both, so your order + list are fine.

The only other comment - the "Connect to truck", I'd be tempted to add a "Pull test", though it's implied.
Thanks for the compliment. I should add that these are not in any particular order here and you are correct in the order of the slides. I leverage priorities in my app which when exported did not come through the best however do show up in order of event. I might play around with it a bit and save it to a file for people to download though.

And yep, a pull test is implied.

Sorry if this has been discussed - what app are you using?

I use ListMaster Pro. Been using it for a while and picked it up on a free app of the day through Amazon one time. Been working great for me.

My 36qbok is supposed to go online to be built today and offline on may 9. Hoping everything goes as scheduled so I can get it for our 10 day trip on may 29.

Awesome! While the time between then and now may be short, it will seem like an eternity. But well worth it!

Bought Elephant Foot Jack Pads

Well, I finally broke down and purchased a set of Elephant Foot Jack Pads. I like the extra surface area of these pads along with the the rubber "shoes" that help prevent slipping on solid surfaces. I'm planning to install the pads sometime over the next couple of weeks and will post photos of the completed project. The front pads appear to be a relatively easy install, but the rear pads may require some modifications.



You can see in the photos below how the rubber "shoe" fits over the actual composite pad.

What's the purpose of these pads? Meaning- what are you solving by getting them?

Good question, these pads should increase stability due to better grip when placed directly on asphalt surfaces and also prevent damage to the asphalt during hot Tennessee summers...some campgrounds get a little upset when metal pads dig into their asphalt. They should also prevent sinking on non-solid surfaces. Additionally, I'm hoping that they'll have better grip when we use our hard plastic jack pads. I got a little nervous the last time when my standard metal pads almost slid off a stack of jack pads when I hooked up.

These new elephant foot pads may or may not do anything for me, but I thought I'd take a chance. I'll let you know.

Cool, thanks for the answers. I use a couple of 2x10s under the landing gear to protect against the same things. I only put stuff under the stabilizers to get them to touch ground at about the same time.

We do the same thing. A lot of the CGs that we frequent require them to prevent gear from digging into the sites when the weather is hot. I always keep four or so 16" long boars in the camper.
