Kevin H Posted January 10, 2016 Report Share Posted January 10, 2016 DW witnessed an accident yesterday that clearly supports the need and use of a checklist when packing up and leaving. Some folks forgot to unhook their electric cable. As a result they ripped the door off the compartment that had the cord's retracting spool. They also tore off the end of their electric cable. Not exactly sure what else was damaged but the electric/water pedestal was damaged to the point the water had to be turned off while a repair was done. I suspect there was damage to the pedestal receptacle too. We felt bad for them but are grateful that we have a detailed checklist we go over at each departure. We've developed ours over the years as we add or remove things to/from the rig. It is two pages long, very detailed with about 40 items. It has saved our butts a few times when we forgot something: water pressure regulator, batwing antenna, pocket doors secured etc. - Here's a biggie for us: Strap down the piano. It is a huge help when we get distracted for some reason during our pack-up process. If you don't have a checklist, I urge you to make one and use it every time you move. Trust me, you'll be glad you did. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
