remove o rings and place into a lubed ziplock bag. Remove port and close the housing back up. I drop the baggy into the empty housing and cover it with a dust cap. I also place TTl converter inide. I fit two housings, 2 sets of strobes, arms, cords all chargers and ball joints into my stormcase at 49lbs. If im traveling within SE asia the i use 1 housing.
I never travel with camera bodies and housing in one place for fear if they are lost.
Also i am sure to photograph all gear laid out before i pack for insurance reasons. Then i take a photo of mt passport and e-mail it all to my account.
If you lose your gear you must make an accurate police report before leaving the airport.
Damage report as well,
Hope this helps,

Regardless, after flying you want to remove and re-lube all of your o-rings (strobes, ttl-converter, cables, etc.) since the pressure can affect them.
There's general info on our camera maintenance page, let me know if there is info missing and I'll add it.
