When your ready to leave the cg after your all hooked up, take a walk around both the tv and tt. If your asked about something while hooking up, it is easy to forget something even if you follow the same steps every time. You see the pros' do it with their rigs. I've caught myself missing the odd thing every now and then. Usually the coffee cup on the table but there is lots to remember.

I walk about about 5 times...lol....and then I tell my DW to walk around - she can usually find something that I just plain missed.

Everyone has pretty much nailed it, just take your time setting up.

I always do a couple of walk arounds before leaving. Windows shut, antenna down, jacks up, doors locked, TT connections working, power cord unplug & properly stored, ect. Give it sometime, experience is a great teacher.

We always keep a little note pad on the range hood. If we forget something or want to add something to the camper, we jot it down for the next trip. We also keep a simple check list there as well.

Most importantly relax & have fun.

Been camping with a TT know for 7 or 8 years. Seems like we always leave something behind on our 1st outing of the season!

I always connect the water before the power just in case the dear wife decides to turn on the hot water heater prematurely. A inline water filter and lynx levelers are nice to have. I also bring a cordless drill with a 3/4" socket attachment to use on the jacks to speed things up.

Hey welcome new member and new camper!
All of the advise given here sounds great and should help you determine your own set-up/tear-down "routine" to follow every time. May I suggest that once you figure out what your routine is, write it down on a note pad and post it inside one of your cupboard doors for quick future reference. This way you know that you won't overlook a step. I just bought a 2006 27BH, the same model as yours just a few years older (they changed the name to 26BH). I marvel at how much easier this trailer is to set-up than any of my four previous ones. ENJOY!!
