We did that one time also. But only once, we learned our lesson as well, if the beds won't slide in no force necessary, there is a reason...just got to find it!

I was feeling good today. Everything went smooth closing up the trailer. The tops clicked shut then.......the steps.....and they don't fold in with the camper closed.


It did seem to tickle SWMBO.

Oh well, live and learn.

Oh, Drews!! LOL!! We have all done it once or even twice!! But, the more you do it, the more you get into the habit of a mental checklist and soon it is just routine!

But, yes, know the frustration of forgetting something. DH closed down just last week and forgot the steps!!! LOL!! Lucky for him, we weren't breaking camp. Just closing the TM down while it sits in the driveway!!

Don't ask how I know all of these:
- Remove and store the hanging cabinet before closing the rear shell.
- Lower the TV antenna before closing the front shell.
- Lift the flaps and secure with velcro before pushing the front slide in.
- Unlatch the cabinet slide bolts before pushing the front slide in.
- Unlatch the cabinet slide bolt before attempting to fold the rear bathroom wall.
- Remove all of the over the wall/door clips before folding the bath wall and sliding the rear bed in.
- Fold the lower door into the travel position before lowering the rear shell.
- Make sure the lower door is latched in the travel position before lowering the rear shell. The dinette light in the 3326 will land on the door.
- Fold the steps into the travel position before lowering the top shells.
- Close and latch the exterior water heater door before closing the rear shell.
- Remove the right angle strain relief from the city water connection before closing the rear shell.
- Open all 4 latches before attempting to rise the front shell.
- & the only one the dealer warned me about that I have not done. Don't leave a coke can on the counter top when closing the TM.

Mike -

I can add "Don't leave a cup of coffee in the microwave."

One more. Make sure the 4 corner hold down latches have both pieces close together and all the way in the open position before closing. If left in the half open position ( hard to describe),, they will catch between the TM body and the upper shell support arm and scratch the body.

Default one more

I'll chip in the 90 degree elbow on the city water inlet...stops the rear shell very nicely. The elbow now stays on the hose when we have hook ups so I don't make that mistake again.
