Default Lowering Checklist

This checklist may save you some unplanned damage. I wrote it after a close call with leaving the water pressure regulator in place after removing the hose. I just saw it in time before lowering the top.

I would add check the tongue area for any items sat there such as bug candles. Not that I know from it happening to me but it did. Close the wardrobe door too.

Default Checklist Updated

OK. I did an upgrade and left space to add your own items.

lpmincey: May I suggest placing your regulator at the spigot end of your hose. You will accomplish two things--removing danger referred to in your thread and protecting your hose from spiking water pressure.

That solution is too simple for me, i like to do things the hard way.

Thanks for the idea.

Kengsr - You are a man after my own heart. A checklist for everything important - It's easier to have a list than to have OCD and check everything twice. Thanks - I have separated mine into - Leaving home/ Returning drycamping vs RV park. Drycamping includes 6 gallon water jug, small blackwater tank and extra spare tire and second battery.

Default Important item

For those of us that drycamp there is a critical item you left out. Right before Black water drained there should be one that says. Tighten clamps on sewer hose. Failure to do so can ruin your whole day.

Rolff,
I had bought a new hose for the 95 but never used it. We got the 2209 and I started using the new hose, was ok till this winter in Florida and it sure can ruin your day. I couldn't believe that I forgot to check the hose clamp.
