Moving day check list

There's a whole lot of packing up to do before we hit the road again in the RV. (Leslie Kelly)

There's always a certain amount of stress on moving day. So, we've come up with a system for packing up that's designed to make hitting the road a little smoother. Here's our checklist: 

  • Drain the tanks
  • Unhook the water and electrical connection
  • Pack away the propane fire bowl and chairs
  • Shake out the rugs
  • Double check all the cupboards are securely closed
  • Bring the slide out in
  • Sweep the floors
  • Double check there's nothing that might spill in the fridge
  • Lock all the outside bins
  • Do a last look around the campsite to make sure we've got everything
  • Plug in the directions to the next destination
  • Make a snack for the road
  • Wave goodbye to our neighbors!
