Here is a look at what we do:
We have to move everything from the middle of the floor and off the counter tops throughout the coach.
Then the laundry basket and some plants go in the shower. The shower door and the sliding doors are locked or latched so they don't move.
Up front, the Driver and Passenger seats need to be turned around and are moved forward so the slides don't hit them when we pull them in. (In our "Newbie" days, one time we pulled the slide in and the passenger seat started to get mashed.... we learned our lesson.)
Then for the outside items:
We decided the clear water tank was a little low, I filled it. It was at 15% (13.5 gal) and I filled it up to 35% (31.5 gal). At 8 lbs a gallon, we usually don't travel with more than that.
Before that though, I fill up the clear tank if it needs it, then empty the black and grey tanks.
I make sure the levers are in the correct position, unhook the flush hose and the regular water hose (and I remove my Y connector from the faucet). I put an end plug that screws into the end of the hose.
The jacks come up first and then the slides come in.
Then I do a 'walk around' to see that everything looks good outside. And to make sure I didn't leave anything outside under the coach.
The PS rear outside tire was 'soft'. Needed quite a bit of air.
I took off the tire pressure monitoring system sensor and found the valve was not screwed down into the stem. I used my little tire stem tool and tightened it. Then I got my extension cord and my air compressor and filled up the tire. Took about 10 minutes.
Then we were ready to go. We moved the Roadrunner to a place we could hook up the car. In this case, it was about 100 feet over in a near by parking lot.
So that is how we get ready and do everything to leave our campsite! It usually takes 15-20 minutes from the time we say, "OK lets get going". Sometimes I drain the tanks and stow the hoses the night before and put the tow bar connectors on the car. That saves some time. (And I almost never have to fill up a tire.)
That's it for this edition of the Roadrunner Chronicles. Thanks for joining us. Until next time...
