Leaving RV Camping Sites


The leaving RV camping sites checklist will help remember important things that need to be done before you depart from your camp site.  Some of the items on the check-off list may seem obvious, but we usually find something we missed almost every time we leave our RV camping sites.

I made the list in the general order of how I perform the various departure tasks.  Obviously, some items need to be done before others. 

A perfect example is the, raise the stabilizer jacks task.  This needs to be done before you raise and lower the tongue jack to connect the trailer to the tow vehicle, because you might damage your stabilizer jacks.
