I am a big believer in checklists. My list for departure is only about a half dozen items, on a small laminated sheet under window by the driver's seat. Even after decades of RVing, it has saved me countless times.

I have a longer checklist for trip prep. Things that need done, day by day, in the two weeks before leaving. Helps spread out the chores, so that last day isn't so hectic and nothing is forgotten.

Being a pilot, it's almost to that point. Lol. Every new RV we buy gets just a little more complicated. The big one I'm really afraid of is I'm going to forget is to retract the levelers. The good new is I look forward to every trip instead of dreading hooking up the trailer and going to a new campground wondering if the darn thing will fit in the campsite.

If you release your parking brake the jacks will retract automatically, Safety feature. Once saw someone drive off with jacks down, he ignored the warning buzzer, didnít have auto retract, got about 20ft. Had to call mechanic to remove all 4 bent jacks. Needless to say he wasnít happy and his mistake was very costly!
