Jim- really liked those orange level ramps from camping world. Also, from I much prefer the HD rubber chocks with handles as opposed to the plastic orange or green or red ones.

Your list will be a very helpful starting point for making our own list, Jim. Thanks.

the camp list is a great idea. use until totally memorized. even then keep one handy. for those who fly you will taxi to the holding area before getting clearance to taxi to the button for permission to take off. well the delay at the holding area is the time the pilots do there final "check" which means we go over the list and make sure everything is in order as required. then the tower is radioed to request permission to proceed to the button for take off. the memory is used as a backup.

I rift'd off Jim's excellent list and added some and formatted some. Thanks for the original Jim.

I have it in Mac Pages format, but here is a pdf. The attachments here are really locked down. If someone wants the Pages file, I'll email it.

"Tire pressure gauge" is listed twice on page 2.

What is "Snake toss"?

He probably ended up with a couple duplicates from my list.

Snake Toss is a game often played by RV'ers. It is sometimes called ladder golf, ladder toss, bolo toss, cowboy golf.

Here is a commercial set. This one called Blongo ball, never heard that. I just make my own with 3/4 PVC and fittings, and golf balls with 1/4 kernmantle rope holding them together. I have made a few sets of this game. This is our second favourite camping game next to all terrain bocce. (Not counting drinking as a game, of course )

Here is a picture I found that looks more like the ones I make.

It is a game said to be derived from cowboys, who when bored out herding cattle (or whatever), would kill a snake or two and throw them, trying to hang them on one of the three barbed wires on a fence.

Draft Checklist

Thank you the earlier lists I've used them liberally, I've organized the list to how my brain is wired, your comments would be appreciated. Our 17B is completed and waiting to be picked up in the spring, it's difficult waiting to hit the road. Thanks. David

I wonder how much all of this stuff weighs? I am trying to only take what I plan to use and not everything I might possibly use.

I had a master list, but it's broken down into several sub-groups. Since most of what I need is already in the trailer, I don't bother with it.
Mainly I print out my food list and clothing list. If I'm going canoeing or fishing I'll print that check list.
I got my original list from FGRV and knew I had to customize it when I noted that the third item from the top of the list was "Check List"
