I also do a final walk around, but I had the sensor sitting on top of the tire, can`t see it unless you squat down. I just plain forgot about it.

I have a sensor as well, but I put it on top of the wheel lock so I can't miss it. I have been thinking about mounting it on the underside of the trailer so it is just always attached - but it hard to find an exterior spot that is not impacted by the sun or some other factor.

Last month we moved about 100ft to another site. Had to put the slides in and somehow during the process my sun glasses fell off the stand. When the slides were put back out I heard the crunch. Slide 1, sun glasses 0.

I once forgot to lower my antenna down on our first TT and while driving home first passed a biker who was pointing up to me. Did I pay attention to it, NO! Kept going, stopped for coffee and bagels, you guessed it under some more trees! Did I look up, NO! Bonehead!

Looked at my tires, hitch, windows and doors you would have thought to look up. Why didn't I....the trees were in the way!

So get back on the road go another few miles past some low lying limbs and onto the highway with more overhanging you guessed it, tree branches.

Finally passed another van and this guys arm is out the window pointing up, waving at me. Now it dawns on me....THE ANTENNA! Pull right over and look up...still there fully intact. WOW! How in the world I made it past all those tree limbs is amazing.

Lesson learned. Now I have a mandatory check list that I refer to before and after breakdown. There's one for setup too! Kids can distract the best of us. I need my lists.

Early on, I devised a checklist that hangs by a string from the drivers side sun visor when I park the 5er. I will not retract the string and checklist until EVERYTHING has been checked, lowered, tightened, undone, stowed and/or secured. So far....so good.

Surprisingly no damage to the chock or tire...
I did the exact same thing, only once though! I also forgot a loaf of bread in one of the cabinets between trips last summer. It looked and smelled pretty bad!

Stopped for gas and somehow got a cement block wall (to the side of the pumps) in between my TT and TV.

We have stopped at Mc Donalds in Hawthorne Nevada several times. A couple of years ago when we still had the Montana I pulled in and crossed the drainage dip because of large trucks sitting in my usual spot. About 150 miles later we stopped for a potty break and noticed the steps were swept back. I never even felt it happen when I crossed the dip. Never again. I hope.
