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:

Driving Your RV

  • 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.
  • Keep in mind the size of your RV. Oftentimes when people get into the groove of driving their RV, they forget that they’re not driving their regular car. Always pay attention to height clearances and remember that your RV is almost as wide as a typical lane in the road, leaving you very little extra space.
  • If you have to back up or move around in a tight space, have someone get out of the RV and help to direct you.

Staying in Your RV

  • 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.
  • When you plan to spend the night in your RV, always check the forecast to make sure there’s not any severe weather ahead.
  • When you park your RV to stay somewhere, be sure that you have cell service, or some other way to call for help in the case of any emergency.
