We leave our boat for 5-7 days and up to 14 since we don't live on it. We follow a similar list to Giu except we leave the shore power hooked up and batteries turned on. We turn off the master AC breaker and turn off all DC breakers though. Personally, I would probably turn the air conditioning off if I wasn't going to be on board for a few days. We don't have A/C though, so it's a moot point. More important than doubling up on the lines would be redundant connections points. We run two springs forward, two springs back, each going to its own cleat on the dock. The midship cleat on our boat has a spring forward and a spring back. The stern cleat has a spring forward. The bow cleat has a spring back. Making sure your bilge is on automatic (which is why I leave shore power on - if we spring a big leak I don't want the batteries to drain 100%) and your lines are set would be the number one priorities from my perspective.
