RV’s are a pleasure to own. They are a great way to get up and down the nation’s beautiful highways. However, unlike traditional automobiles, there are several things you need to do to make sure they are road-ready and safe to travel.
Before you hit the road on that summer tour, make sure you inspect all of the essential systems, such as the exhaust, fuel tanks, and the propane tank system. Make sure all houses and connections are clean and not damaged. Make sure nothing is worn down and make sure all safety valves are properly functioning.
Even if you are an experienced driver, make sure you know how to handle an RV. They are very top heavy, and drive more akin to a bus or an 18-wheeler. Learn how to go easy on the brakes and how to do S.A.F.E. cornering. Also, take a look at your route, and make sure you know what kind of traffic you will be dealing with. Finally, make sure that you know your height clearance to avoid running into any low hanging overpasses or tunnels.
