The best way to enjoy your stay in a travel trailer at a campground is to plan ahead and set it up properly. Taking the time to work through the details of setting up your travel trailer means you don't have to worry about dealing with the avoidable issues later on. As you gain experience with your travel trailer, you will learn the best and most efficient ways to get things done. Pretty soon, this will all come as second nature.


Things You'll Need:

Wheel chocks
Potable water hose
Sewer hose
Support for sewer hose
Electric cable
Stabilizing jacks
Cable for TV

Step 1:    Check the site for the location of hookups you will need and the best way to park the travel trailer. Look for anything that could be an obstacle to slide outs and awnings

Step 2:    Back or pull through the site to park the travel trailer. Make a final survey before you get set up and adjust the position of the travel trailer as needed.

Step 3:    Chock the wheels to prevent the trailer from rolling.

Step 4:    Support the trailer with the trailer jack mounted on the front of the travel trailer.

Step 5:    Disconnect cables, wires, hoses, and the travel trailer from the tow vehicle.

Step 6:    Level the travel trailer and apply stabilizing jacks as appropriate for your travel trailer.

Step 7:    Hook up the services required, potable water, sewer, electric, cable TV. Be aware that many campgrounds require sewer hoses be supported so they are not lying on the ground.

Step 8:    Turn on the water and LP gas and switch the refrigerator to electric from battery.

Step 9:    Open the gray water valve.

Step 10:    Remove the slide out locks and deploy the slide out if equipped.

Step 11:    Set the steps in place and open the awning.

Tips & Warnings

Create a written check list specific to your travel trailer and your needs.

Never leave the black water valve open. This is only opened when draining and cleaning the black water tank. Leaving it open will cause problems with cleaning and odors.
