    USA Proper Pre-Trip For Newbies

    This is the Proper way to do a Pre-Trip!

    I read allot of threads about people not knowing how to do it right or having problems with the DOT because they didn't know what to check or what they were looking for.


    This is what I do and what you should be doing every day!

    Pre-trip:

    -Check radio volume knob. Should be LOUD
    -Check cigarette lighter function. Should be HOT
    -Trailer? What trailer?
    -Kick the tires.
    -Light the fires!

    In-route:

    -Check cup-holder fluid level. Should be FULL
    -Check pee-jug fluid level. Should be EMPTY


    Right?

    NO?

    Ok, I'll study the list.
    Thanks for that!



    (ETA: Sorry for the irreverancy; much needed humor break from studying all day. Promise to do thorough pre-, during-, and post-trip inspections!)
