Great tips guys….thanks.
I will print and make a check list.
Ref the gas can…..when drining to TU in californina a couple years ago (did not make it and had to turn around) I had a two gallon platic can in the trunk. I ended up leaking due to the heat. So, this time I will be using my spare wheel 9 liter BMW metal fuel can. It looks like a donut and is desined to be placed inside the spare tire and bolted down with the tire. Needless to say, it wont fit in my 13" spare. I know for sure it will not leak, the Germans are good that way. For those of you with 15" wheels, I highly reccomend it.
