Maintenance Checklists? Upkeep? Etc

Hey Folks,
New to the bus world. Recently purchased a 2006 Ford E450 V10 that has partially been converted for bunk beds and travel. Use is for camping/lodging and traveling with my band. Historically we have traveled in econolines or chevy expresses so this is a big step in the "maintenance" dept for us. I was wondering if anyone has some good maintenance lists or things to consistently check into and keep on top of. Here are some details on the vehicle.

2006 Ford E450
Engine: V10
miles 185,000.
New Reman Jasper V10 was installed in 2014 by Ford dealership. Miles on new engine are at 50k
New tranny was installed in 2016 by ford dealership
AC Repaired by Ford dealer in 2015
Front & Rear breaks replaced by Ford dealer in 2015
New Firestone Transforce HT tires put on in July 2016
3500W converter - shore power amp plug in

Your maintenance/pre- drive and post drive checklists or anything else just to keep an eye on would be tremendously appreciated.

Also the seller has been super helpful but what kinds of questions would you all ask for knowledge transfer (aside from the what is wrong with it lol) Thanks again everyone!
