RV Checklist - Tire

One of the first things we put together after we bought our motorhome was a pre-departure checklist. We use this every time we pack up the RV and move to a new destination. It has come in very handy and we find it’s a great way to ensure we don’t leave anything behind or worse, break something. Kait keeps this list handy as a note on her cell phone.
