The temperatures are slowly dropping and the leaves are getting ready to turn. It’s the perfect time of year to get out and enjoy the foliage by going camping, heading to the mountains, or road tripping to visit family, while enjoying the view.
If you are like the millions of American’s who prefer to travel in a Recreational Vehicle (RV),you must follow these 3 key steps to keep you safe on the road.
1. Before You Hit the Road in Your RV:
- Check the exterior for cracks and missing or damaged seals
- Inspect and test the battery
- Examine and pressurize the tires
- Replace filters and replenish brake, coolant, transmission, hydraulic and washer fluids
- Clean, inspect and refill LP gas lines and appliances
- Test carbon monoxide and smoke detectors
- Flush and fill the water system looking for leaks, clarity, and drinkability
- Check batteries and that all appliances are working
- Inspect sewer hoses and waste tank valves for cracks or sticking
When you are far from home it is also vital that you have the right equipment on-hand that can get you out of any situation.
2. What To Pack in Your RV:
- Proper extension cord with the correct amps
