I must admit I admire those who have proper lists for these sort of things. It seems like a very good idea but one that I have never got around to doing. During camping season we have the trailer pretty much ready to go @ all times except for fresh food and fridge items. As we have to store at a storage lot we stop by the house on the way home and drop of dirty laundry and food, refill the water tank and then take the trailer back to the lot. ushaully the next day we take the cleaned bedding and trailer clothes back and re-pack so leaving on the next trip is painless.

We put a big Damp Rid container in there and regularly dump water out of it.

Furnace vent needs to be covered --- with a note inside to uncover it later.

Floating Cloud brings up a good point, dehumidifying is important in the winter. I left one of these plugged in on top the stove, worked great and also helped keep the inside warmer. Davis Instruments Air-Dryr 1000 Dryer: Sports & Outdoors

I've got a camp list that I copied from an FGRV member.
It covered pretty much everything.
In fact the fourth item down was "Camp List".
