Everyone has their own method of setting up and breaking down their RV when camping though there are some similarities in them all. You’ll find the basics here, to get you started on your own checklist. You can print one off and keep it handy for all of your trips. A camping checklist can really assist you in not forgetting something important.
Chock your wheels, even on level lots. This assists in eliminating the slight rocking motion that the RV may have as people move about within the interior, particularly if you are traveling with children.
Set and adjust your leveling jacks. Proper leveling helps to make certain that each of the RV systems will work properly. Propane powered appliances like refrigerators require proper leveling for efficient operation.
Deploy your steps and handrail.
Deploy your slide-outs.
Hook up your electric line, water hose, sewer hoses, and cable line to the provided connections.
Open black water valve to empty the black water holding tank. Close the valve.
Open gray water valve to empty gray water holding tank. Leave the valve open.
Switch on your main propane supply valve.
Turn on your hot water heater. There’s nothing worse than a cold shower on a cool night!
Light the pilot on your stove.
Turn on your air conditioners, set thermostats.
Raise the television antennae or adjust your satellite dish.
This checklist is suitable for many RVs. If you have additional steps for putting together your RV, be sure you include them. Minding these steps immediately after you park your RV will enable you to play for the rest of your vacation, focused entirely on the main step of those all… having a good time!
