The night before delivery: Making lists

Written by on March 25, 2012 in How Tos

At 1:30 tomorrow afternoon, I take my first drive in our new previously owned Roadttrek RS-Adventurous, driving eight miles home from the dealer.

This afternoon, I cleared some low hanging limbs from a huge oak that hung over parts of the driveway and I worked on a Things-To-Buy list for the Roadtrek.

Here’s what I have so far:

  • A flashlight
  • A battery powered lantern
  • A whisk broom and dustpan
  • A small handheld battery powered vacuum
  • A waste basket
  • A water pressure reducer (Watts brand)
  • A level
  • A block or hunk of wood to drive the wheels over to make up for uneven ground
  • Disposable gloves (for the sewer hose)
  • A big roll of duct tape
  • A first aid kit

There are other things. We already ordered a bike rack, a coffee pot and a GPS unit. I’m still searching for a place that can sell me and install a backup camera. I need to figure out what tools I should have. And Jennifer wants airtight plastic bins of assorted sizes to organize and store the many things we’ll leave in the unit. She already has the bedding and pillows. I plan to buy extra chargers for my iPhone and iPad that I can also leave in the rig.

What am I missing?

    Don’t forget to buy a fire extinguisher. Hopefully you never need it but you will be glad you have it if you do.
