It appears you are about 2 weeks ahead of me, so I can get an idea of where I am in relation to you in your pictures. Thanks.

Here is the one I drew up that we use. It really could use some work with how it is organized, but that takes time, and it does work fine for now, as is.

Like all my checklists, I use it in Excel, and delete all line items I don't want to take, and items I know are in the trailer. I then print the list, and close the file without saving. I do have a few backup copies should I screw something up.

Sokol - Thanks for sharing the pics .. our 19' build is scheduled for the Jan/Feb hatch. Excitement is building and other's pics add to the rush.

May I add spare fuses and tail-light bulbs?
You likely won't need them, but knowing you have them is worth the minor expense.

Yeah, good thought. I do carry fuses and interior light bulbs. Should add it to the check list.

The tail lights would require changing out the entire thing though, as they are a sealed unit. I imagine even if one LED burned out, they would still work.
