Re: Initial Trailer Outfitting

Hi:All... I always take my waterpump pliers... for hooking up the water hose. Seems I can't get my fingers in the compartment to hook to the trailer and can't get the hose tight enough to prevent leaks at the faucet. OOOps and don't forget the pressure regulator!!! Alf

Re: Initial Trailer Outfitting

Jim, Thanks for that list.

Very well thought out. I am packing as I type (okay, a small break). It is making my life much easier.

Cheers.

Re: Initial Trailer Outfitting

I realize this thread has been closed for awhile but instead of reinventing the wheel, I wanted to add an item. With the 19' dual wheel set up there may be locations where the campsite is not level side to side. I found these 2 small ramps that will fit behind the rear and in between the front wheels on the 19'. You then slowly back up approximately 6-8" up the small incline. Works a lot easier than using the two B@L single axle wheel levelers. Here is a link at C/W http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...set-of-2/29418

The list I attached above seems to be missing a page. I have revised it since then. It is pretty rough yet. You could just eliminate what is not applicable to your camping, and add in what is.

Most of you seasoned Escapees will already have a list, or else a real good memory. This is meant for those just looking to make up their own lis.

We do up food lists separately.

I have it in an Excel spreadsheet. When I print of the list, I immediately go through and cross out what I am positive what is already aboard, and confirm other thing I am not sure of, and finally add what we need.

I just found this valuable set of ideas and lists, so I'm bumping it up a year and a quarter. Thanks all of you for the great ideas.

I copied a list off of FGRV years ago.
Among the first half dozen items on the list was "Camp list".
