me to

have forgotten the cotter pins on my hitch setup. now have a laminated check list to follow regarding the things to do and check inside and out of the tt and also regarding hook up to tv. i always stop after a few miles and do one more walk around just to be sure. glad nothing serious happened, happy camping!

It was plugged in overnight, battery did not have enough to kick it over....I will check to see if it isolates with the key. I don't think I will disconnect when I am traveling from now on

Professional truckers do a walk around their rig prior to driving. This is something that I make a practice of every time I drive the trailer. I was surprised how many times I overlooked something before leaving. I would recommend this practice to anyone, especially those who are new to towing.

I have my truck wired directly to my trailer at all times through a 30amp breaker and can leave them plugged together for days prior to a trip without my truck battery dieing, sounds like you have an issue with your trailer battery
