When we get it ready for winterizing, everything ( that normally stays in the TT) that can freeze, or become mouse food, gets put in totes and stacked on a designated shelf unit. Just to keep stuff in one place. If we start scattering stuff around, I'll forget some of it in the spring. After the cover comes off it, we take the totes out, and refill the camper. We also carry extra water hose, and 30 amp cords. If we don't use them, sometimes they get other campers out of trouble. That's happened more than once.

I packed extra hose gaskets, pressure regulator, an extra 25' fresh water hose. I also have water filters and a "Y" adapter.
For sewer stuff, GLOVES, a 15 foot garden hose for flushing out, and a sewer hose flush adapter, and tank chemicals.
For electrical, I carry 30 to 15 amp, 50 to 30 adapters, and a circuit analyzer, and an extension cord.

This may have been posted already but get some Raid flying insect killer. We found out the hard way many years ago camping when our girls were little. The door and screen were left open on the trailer one evening in the summer when we were hanging out with friends by the fire. When we were done for the night we came into the trailer and discovered hundreds of little bugs flying around the ceiling lights. Fortunately a friend had some Raid we used. It took quite a while to kill and clean them all out before we could peacefully go to sleep

We have a plastic box that we keep in our house filled with things that I don't want to get too hot while trailer is in storage. We keep allergy tablets, toothpaste, contact lens solution, deodorant, first aid cream, sun screen, etc. We have trained ourselves to always grab that box before each trip.

Hi there! I'm a complete newbie to this world, so while I can answer this directly, I did see a different thread that might be helpful (see link below). They don't mention the same model you have, but good info nonetheless. Good luck!

Gesper, what impact driver did you purchase. Asking for my neighbor who has a TT, bought a driver and it failed on the first trip.

I use Wunderlist app (free download from App Store) for our lists. It syncs with my PC, all our tablets and our phones. I make multiple lists. You can cross off items as complete and uncross them for the next trip.

I typed up a "preflight" check list with checkboxes and put it in a plastic document frame (with a plastic not glass insert) I use a dry erase marker to check off all items as completed. (Lock storage, retract awning, retract slide out, retract jacks, stow away counter items, ck tire pressures, lugs, fluids, etc.)
