1. Verify that all tires are properly inflated.
This can be done by checking the air pressure in each tire with a gauge, and then adjusting it as necessary. It is important to have the correct pressure in order to avoid problems while driving.
2. Connect the trailer to the tow vehicle.
This is done by attaching the tow ball to the trailer hitch on the tow vehicle, and then coupling the two together. It is important to make sure that they are connected correctly, or it could cause damage to either vehicle.
3. Attach the breakaway cable and safety chains.
The breakaway cable is used to disconnect the trailer from the tow vehicle in case of an emergency, while the safety chains keep the vehicles connected in case of a problem with the breakaway cable. These should be attached in a secure manner so that they will not come loose while driving.
4. Inspect the lights on both the RV and the tow vehicle.
It is important to make sure that all of the lights are working properly, as this can help prevent accidents while driving at night.
5. Fill up the RV's water tank, if necessary.
If there is not already enough water in the tank, it will need to be filled up before travelling. This can be done at a filling station, or by using a hose connected to a nearby faucet.
6. Connect the sewer hose to the RV and dump station, if necessary.
This hose is used to dispose of waste water from the RV, and should be connected correctly so that there is no leakage. It is also important to make sure that it is only used at authorized dump stations, or else fines may be incurred.
7. Plug in the RV to an electrical outlet, if necessary.
Some RVs require electricity in order to run appliances or air conditioners etc., so it is important to check beforehand if this is needed for your particular model. If it is necessary, an electrical outlet can be found at most campgrounds.
8. Open up all of the propane tanks and check for leaks.
This should be done before travelling, as it is unsafe to drive with leaking propane tanks. If any leaks are detected, they should be fixed immediately before proceeding any further.
9. Level out the RV with blocks or leveling jacks.
If the RV is not level, it can cause problems with appliances and make it uncomfortable to sleep in. Therefore, it is important to use blocks or leveling jacks to ensure that the RV is level before travelling.
10. Make sure all windows and doors are closed and locked.
This should be done for both security and safety reasons. It is also important to check that any screens are in place and secure so that insects cannot enter the RV.
