Before leaving on your camping adventure, there are a number of little things to check. All your appliances, like your dishwasher, clothes washer and oven, lights and so on must be turned off or have finished their cycle before you shut and lock the door.Check every room a few minutes before you leave. A stuffed toy left behind can be a real tragedy for a young child.
Needless to say, you should also lock all your doors and, if possible, let the neighbours know if you’re going to be away for a long time.These last-minute checks should be part of your departure routine. They are almost essential, and will save you all kinds of trouble.
Quickly inspect inside and outside your RV and car, to make sure that everything is where it should be.You can use good-quality bungee cords to hold things in place. Poor-quality ones will lose their elasticity after a few uses. Check the latches on cupboard doors and other storage spaces, too.
Take a quick walk around your RV and a brief look inside whenever you fill up, too.A few drops of oil or grease on the ball before you hook it up to the car can help prevent very unpleasant squeaking from your RV on the road. But be careful, it’s also a great way to get your clothes dirty!
