Instead of adding a Checklist at the bottom of the list of all Checklists on a card is there a way to reverse the order so added Checklist from the picker show up at the top by default? I'm trying to avoid having to drag/ drop most recently added checklists.

Thanks for sharing that with us. I'm afraid it's not possible to change that behavior right now. However, I understand how this would be beneficial so I’ll pass your interest in this on to our team for consideration—let me know if there's any additional info you'd like for me to send their way.
If you're curious about how our team decides on what requests we work on, this article gives some insight into that process: http://help.trello.com/article/724-submitting-feature-requests-for-trello
To see what features our devs are currently working on, check out our dev board at http://www.trello.com/dev.
haha. Good luck and don't hold your breath. I've requested and checked on this request several times since Nov. It's not on their roadmap and there are no plans for it yet. Or they point you to a resource that tells you why some requests are priority and what priorities they're working on which is not helpful and just enables Trello to deflect.
I also recommended that they could add a feature to click+drag on a checklist item so you could duplicate it anywhere in the checklist. The response was 'cool idea' but never any commitment. Not even to just default items to the top. I also don't know why this simple but important feature can't be developed sooner. Seems like plenty of people need it.
Sky, we've been using Zoho for over a year and have detailed integrations between Trello and Zoho. We use Trello for certain types of file management and checklists which is important for our work. Trello doesn't seem to think this specific feature in the checklists is a priority.
If it is badly needed, i have a workaround which i use, when I have add a checklist
This is not straight forward and not using browser but via the API (curl request) from browser u can check and note the CardID (use network tab when u open card, u will be able to make out which is the card ID)
The below API call adds a checkinglist to the top as we mention `pos=top`
curl --request POST --url 'https://api.trello.com/1/checklists?idCard=<Card ID>&name=<URL Encoded name or name without space>&pos=top&key=<Your API Key>&token=<Your API Token>'
You can generate your api token from here https://trello.com/app-key, look for "you can manually generate a Token."
Hope it helps
Not sure why Trello does not support this on UI, as they already have API support for it.
@Ken Wulf If you want to invest some time figuring out about Butler for Trello, then this might be a solution: https://www.reddit.com/r/trello/comments/6qxfyw/adding_a_new_checklist_to_the_top/
It does not work for me as I need the "add checklist to top of card" functionality on demand and not for all cards.
