We dry camp 99% of the time, that is without hookups, so you may find things related to having hookups have been omitted. But the basics are here.
Please feel free to add your comments and suggestions. Over the years many suggestions from Casitans have been added to the lists and I try to update every so often. (If you want to download the Checklist, I'm including a link below)
NOVEMBER 10, 2010: THIS LIST HAS BEEN EDITED BY CAROL TO CORRECT AN ERROR IN THE "SANITIZING WATER SYSTEM" SECTION.
For Newbies: CASITA CHECK LISTS plus WINTERIZING & SANITIZING
(1) General Maintenance
• Grease hitch ball & if you have a WDH, grease weight distributing hitch (WDH) bars - but NEVER EVER grease the sway bar.
• Grease wheel bearings.
• Tighten all hitch bolts.
• Check hot water anode for wear - replace if necessary. Ours is replaced annually.
• Tighten all wheel lugs - use a star pattern, crossing to opposite sides as you tighten; for example, a five cornered star with points numbered clockwise would begin at #1 and follow a 1,3,5,2,4 pattern.
