I have a couple lists too. Laminated and everything. Even with that, there are two things that always get missed: 1) the TV antenna (though I've never actually left with it up, I just forget until I'm in the truck ready to pull away), 2) and the range hood vent cover.

Invariably, I forget these two items whether they're on the list or not, I must have some sort of brain block about them...

So, I think I'm going to get a set of these: http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...et-of-10/66688

OH... I forgot a really good one...

Make sure you close your dump valves before you leave the dump station.. You will have a VERY angry VERY large man on a motorcycle wanting to do bad things to you...

When I die, I want to go peacefully like my grandfather did–in his sleep. Not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car.

Another important one (from the sign at our favorite KOA in Middlebury...... "Make sure wife is in truck".

Pulled into a rest stop in Michigan last week and parked beside another RV hauler. I noticed that neither his safety chains nor his break-a-away cable were connected to the truck!!!!! I kindly brought it to his attention and he commented "oh guess i forgot". Same as others here i have a checklist that i go through EVERY time i hook / unhook a trailer. Take your time...5 more minutes at hook up time may save your life or equipment down the road.

Definitely make sure your steps are up. I put reflective tape on all 3 sides not only for night vision, but also so you'll see it from the mirrors if you ever leave it down after a trip or pit stop. Safe travels and congrats!
