My Tow/ Camp Checklist

Recommended Posts

I made this because the Owners Manual towing and camping lists are simply lame. This one is set up like an aircraft preflight checklist. Feel free to edit and change as needed, some items may not apply or you may just want to do it differently.

 

Mine is laminated and posted inside the closet door:

For some reason the checklist will not download, nor can I edit the first post.

 

Try this:

I can download the jpg, but not the Word doc (probably my error). Might you post the PDF so maybe I can download that file? Thanks

Go back to my March 22 post and click the bold link in the text, not the attachment at the bottom. If that doesn’t work I will convert it to pdf. This forum has problems with attachments.

John,

 

I am trying like heck to download your checklist but am failing miserably.  If not on this site, can you email me a copy?  I can private message you to provide me email address.  Thanks.

 

BTW:  I find your comments and inputs extremely helpful especially since this is new to me and my wife.

The March 22 2018 link is good, not the one at the top of this thread, which is a dud, and I cannot edit that post! Or try here.

Be sure to edit it for your particular equipment. For example external solar panel or sat antenna, tv coax, etc,  none of which I have.

 

Also, I have tire pressure listed as “80 psi recommended.” While true, you could change it to your actual running pressure, in my case for an Elite II, I use 45 psi. As far as I know, Oliver still has not changed their recommendation to reflect actual real world pressure, rather than the very high sidewall rating.

How do I get back to your March 22 2018 post?  I am only seeing the one page which was obviously preceded by more info.

 

 

 

Thanks.

Thank you, John! This is very helpful! I have been wondering how to create a checklist. Excellent! We are working little by little to understand as much as possible before receiving our trailer and to find all of these links is outstanding. Thank you for taking the time to do these.

Best,

Mirna and PK

John:

Wouldn't your Fridge be on 12V when towing? I have to admit that I run my Airstream fridge on propane even when driving down the road. I am looking forward to the much safer use of 12V instead!

I leave it on propane always, unless I need to board a ferry or go through a long tunnel that is posted. On 12 volts, it uses a ton of power, the heating element pulls something like 15 amps, if I remember correctly. The fridge is a lot more effective running on gas than it is on either 12 VDC or 120 VAC.

Our fridge is always on propane when traveling. There are folks that successfully use 12 volts going down the road, I've never had consistent good luck with that. There are millions of campers on the road using their propane with no problems. You will need to make that personal decision yourself, there is no right or wrong answer.
