Moderators topgun2 Posted March 22, 2019 Moderators Share Posted March 22, 2019 I've tried checklists but I've never found them to be as easy as they should be. Carrying around a clip board or dry erase board just doesn't do it for me and, somehow, I'd miss things even though I could swear that I checked it. So, I tried to just get into a routine and do the same tasks the same way every time - that way certainly I would not forget something. Yep, that didn't work all the time either. I tried "sticky notes" - what a disaster that was - think rain and surfaces that those little buggers don't stick to let alone ALL of those bits of paper laying around on everything. Here is a new idea I'm trying - "slap straps". Get a bunch of these, write the thing that should be checked on one, and attach it to either the steering wheel of the truck or the screen door grab handle. As I take care of the item noted on the strap, I simply remove it from the steering wheel (or screen door grab bar). When I set up camp I place the strap back on the wheel or door when I take care of that chore. Sorry that I don't currently have access to my Oliver to show the straps in action, but here are what these things look like: The black storage tube was made out of an old golf club storage sleeve and a couple of caps from used small tubes of grease. I got the slap straps from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B011DFG4W8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I originally got the idea from You, Me & the RV on YouTube. 3 2023 Ford F150 Lariat 3.5EB FX4 Max Towing, Max Payload, 2016 Oliver Elite II - Hull #117 "Twist" Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
