RVs are a great way to explore our beautiful country all while spending time with your friends and family. While they can be a lot of fun, they also need to be used with precaution in order to ensure the safety of all those aboard your RV. So, here are some RV safety pointers to keep your trips fun and safe:

  • Routine maintenance is an important safety precaution for your RV. It’s especially important to have your RV checked out by a mechanic before you head out on a trip.
  • Remember that driving an RV is different from driving a car. It takes longer to brake and accelerate, and your RV makes wider turns.
  • It’s important to always watch the weather forecast before heading out on a trip. Driving in rain, ice, or snow is unwise in an RV. It’s also not a good idea to stay the night in your RV if there’s severe weather in the forecast.
  • When stopping for the night, make sure that you camp in an area where you can call for help if you need to: so, either a place with a cell phone signal or access to a landline close by.
  • Always lock your RV when you leave it unattended or when you’re going to sleep.
  • Create an emergency kit, with first aid supplies, batteries, flashlights, water, and extra food and store it in your RV in case of an emergency.
  • Always keep a fire extinguisher on your RV.
  • Be aware of your RV’s electrical load and don’t try to use too many appliances at once.

Going on a trip in your RV can be a real adventure, just make sure that it’s a safe one!
