I’m not sure that the title of this post is entirely truthful, at least from my point of view. While it might be most popular for people to take RVs and campers out in the warmer months, I think that fall and winter RVing is just as fun as spring and summer camping. Nonetheless, many people are taking the normal route this year and getting their RVs out of the portable garage right now, so that they may enjoy the nice weather and the open road.
There are some tips that you should follow for RV safety and here are a few of the most important:
Tire Check – RVs are much bigger than normal vehicles on the road, so obviously, tire pressure is of major concern to the safety and efficiency of a drive. Tire problems can be easily avoided as long as you keep the load light and drive within the speed limit. This will extend your fuel usage and overall safety on the highway.
Blinded – If you think that the blind spots in your sedan are difficult to deal with, get ready for more in your RV. The size of RVs makes for a lot more blind spots with bigger areas. Use your mirrors to navigate any tough spots and be especially careful when sharing the road with other large vehicles.
Belt It Up – Even though it may be more comfortable for your passengers to move freely throughout the RV during a ride, make sure everyone is wearing their seatbelts whenever possible. Sudden movements and stops can make for serious falls and accidents if someone is standing up and walking around.
Store It – The best way to ensure that your RV is in perfect condition when you take it out for the summer is to store it correctly in a portable garage. By sheltering your vehicle from the weather in an RV garage, you can guarantee that it will be as pristine as it was the year before.
